Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Its a lemon

Olubajo 1/17/2023

First problem was that it would stop working mid cycle and all the lights would start blinking on the touch panel. Just blinking on and off. Then Id have to turn it off by unplugging it multiple times in hope it would reset and start again. Second issue is a plastic orange piece that is connected to the bottom sprayer keeps falling off. The last problem is the AE light comes on which can mean too much soap but I followed the directions to use less soap but it did it again. This has been the worst experience with an appliance I have ever had.

Learning Phase

smos2 1/16/2023

I bought this dishwasher less than a mopnth go. I have only run two loads since installation. The first was the Turbo wash with minimal dishes as reuested in the user manual. Dishes came out clean but still wet. The second load was a full load. It was run with additional heat and with the night time dry cycle. Dishes came out clean and dry. I am still learning to use all the features so this review is a little premature. So far I would say I am pleased with it it runs quietly and does the jpb of cleaning the dishes.

Issues

Rocket9 1/7/2023

The dishwasher was running well for about a year. Then around the year mark it started to get really loud. We called LG warranty. They only have a one year warranty so we are a few months over and will have to pay for the labor to fix a defective part. We own a few other LG products but based off of the current experience we wont be buying LG again.

Pooped in Pompano 1/5/2023

Purchased in Oct 2022 delivered in late Nov 2022. The manual states to not pre-wash anything before inserting to dishwasher unfortunately sticky stuff still sticks. I expected better from LG.

I have been using this dishwasher for a little over a week now. It works great super quiet and cleans and dries well. It has slightly longer cycle times than my previous however it offers a rapid clean 1 hour long cycle. The warrenty is also a huge plus as its near unmatched in its industry.

Dishwasher is good. Quiet. But back foot for leveling was broken and would not descend had to cut a foot at the right level to install it because we already removed the old dishwasher got rid of the outer box and after the issue with LG changing the delivery dat wee didnt want to risk sending it back or waiting for service.

Taylor K 11/10/2022

Looks great in our kitchen. Love that the controls are on the outside instead of along the top. However it is a little louder than our last dishwasher. This can be a positive since we dont accidentally open in while its running.

It does not streak or leave things messy. I love the setting options it offers as well. Overall my favorite dishwasher to date. I also chose all of my LG appliances in the black stainless and it is just perfection

No more Paper Plates

surina4 10/9/2022

No more paper plates for large family gatherings I bought this in March 2022 the remodel took several months to complete so I didnt start using this until June 2022. The dishwasher is so quiet I dont even know it is running so much that I open it mid-cycle to check the first time. The dishwasher gets the job done dishes and pots come out clean after each cycle. I couldnt get this one to connect to the WiFi like my other LG appliances. This dishwasher works so well that I dont even mind that.

Quiet dishwasher

annmarie10 9/20/2022

This is by far the quietist dishwasher weve owned and our first LG dishwasher. I like the extra top rack for utensils and the slotted silverware tray plus the fact you can lower the middle rack or remove it. The stainless interior is easy to wipe down and doesnt show water spots. I do have issues reading the control panel as the white letters blend with the gray background when I have my kichen lights on. I usually only use one cycle so its just a matter of filling the soap dispenser and pressing start.

front controls

LJT WV 8/30/2022

If I had it to do over I would have bought the controls on the top of the door. we are constantly inadvertently hitting something on the front when shutting the door. not yet used to that or having the silverware rack taking so much room. My last one had one I could put on the door and it was much better space.
