If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

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.

Jodrobi 9/14/2022

I absolutely adore this dishwasher... I honestly have never had a dishwasher clean as well as this one and the top silverware rack is genius. It is also whisper quiet The control panel is quite sensitive so you do need to be careful... its so quiet you may activate and not even know it.

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.

ECHank 8/30/2022

I purchased this dishwasher a couple of months ago as part of a complete kitchen appliance package. Like the looks and easy to use control panel. Use the upper flatware tray more than I thought I would for various items to small to wash in the lower racks. Very quiet during operation so much that Ill sometimes check to make sure its running.

Kris05 8/24/2022

Ive had it a few weeks but honestly love it so far Ive always wanted the 3rd row so definitely super functional for me. I use it everyday and the little music it plays at the end is the cutest. Im able to load a lot of dishes and not worry about if they were cleaned or not. Features and buttons are super easy and self explanatory. Overall Im a sucker so looks and its super sleek design is a win for me.

KHUGHES 8/6/2022

Nice dishwasher with adjustable shelves that make loading fairly easy. The bottom rack can be difficult at times if you pull it to far out. The top utensil rack is nice. I wish it was a bit deeper for cooking utensils. I still have to place many on the rack just below it doesnt accommodate my large ladles knife or spatulas.

Cheaply made

Deeroni 8/1/2022

The 3rd rack only takes up more room so you cant put anything tall in the top rack. The door does not go all the way down so the bottom rack rolls back into the dishwasher unless you lift it completely out. Wheels are cheap and will probably break quickly if not very careful.

lkt 76 6/16/2022

When I finally got this installed long wait for a plumber I read the manual and spent some time finding the best ways to load my various sized dishes where to put the silver ware basket and what the best detergent should be. I think this is a great dishwasher which will save water and work on my part. It really does get the dishes clean and spot free. I particularly like the over night dry option. Best dishwasher I have ever had.

Kharrison13 6/14/2022

I bought this a month ago. I love the dishwasher since I have not had a new dishwasher for 20 years. The only thing I have found is that I love the third rack but I have found out that all the silverware must not be laying on each other like spoon on top of spoon some dont get clean. Love the product and I am planning on getting the matching refrigerator and stove soon.

I am very pleased with the different washing options and the three rack levels. The directions/quick start could have clearer information. Also the touch screen is super sensitive so it takes some time to get used to it. I have had no problems with my dishes coming out very clean and the extra dry option is also appreciated.

Nice Dishwasher

GA670 5/11/2022

Looks beautiful Very quiet compared to my old dishwasher. The pods fit in the compartment perfectly and I do use the recommended finishing liquid. Im getting used to the silverware basket with separate slots for silverware but might remove the lid to make it easier to just toss in as removing them you have to put your fingers on the eating portion to remove. I gave it a 4 rating because Im not sure the 3rd rack gets things as clean as it should. Sometimes I need to re wash items up there. Also the controls are on the front and every time someone accidently leans against the front of dishwasher it turns on so I have to stop it every once in while. Otherwise I am enjoying this product and would recommend.

Clean dishes but...

BBis 4/2/2022

This dishwasher is advertised as BLACK STAINLESS. The dishwasher is NOT STAINLESS STEEL. When I spoke to tech support about this I was told black stainless is only the color and does not mean that the front panel is stainless steel. How absurd of a response. Can you imagine if other products you purchased came with the same explanation? Is that a real poncho or is that a sears poncho?
