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.

Very quiet

dune69 9/18/2022

Had this dishwasher for about a month. It is nice to have the third upper rack for long utensils like tongs and spatulas. Runs very quiet which is nice.

Nice luxury

Zchkai 9/13/2022

This unit its amazingly quiet and does a great job cleaning on the Auto setting. If you leave the dishes sit for a week Express wash setting does not get the dried food off so now I soak the silverware until I am ready to wash. Busy family use probably wont have this problem. The top rack fits an amazing amount of silverware and is more sanitary because you dont have to touch the clean surfaces when done like you would with a side basket. I love the super-deep lower rack able to fit cookie sheets large skillets and large platters. The night dry keeps moisture from accumulating when you wash at bedtime. LG had the features I wanted stainless interior deep rack third rack white exterior. Overall it was easy to install with detailed directions 59 yo female. The only tricky part was knowing which size screws for side-mounting to the cabinet. I used screws that were too small and now they are stuck forever in the dishwasher frame and cant get them back out. Would be nice to have the side-mounting screws included so you dont have to guess length and gauge. Overall nice luxury to have when the whole family comes over and uses every dish in my house

Nice dishwasher but be careful of the door latch.

LG Owner Marietta 8/28/2022

Bought this dishwasher from BestBuy in August 2022. This an open box item was unused. Installed unit and discovered it would not start because door interlock switches were damaged. Also beware of the spring loaded door latch being in the closed/ latched position while the door is open. In that case the door wont snap and latch when closing.

Sandi K F 7/19/2022

Our other dishwasher was over 20+ years old and what a difference in the clening that this LG dishwasher makes dishes feel sooo clean. Use the 3rd rack some but probably wouldnt miss it if I took it out. Not crazy about the silverware basket - would rather put all the forks in one small spoons etc. together. Could do that with the slits but more trouble than Im interested in. Im sure Ill get use to it. But overall a GREAT dishwasher.

Eric Watt 7/19/2022

Does a great job cleaning dishes...however drying is a problem. Even max drying cycle leaves lots of water on the door...the instructions to connect phone via NFC are very poor. Thats a lot of money for a dishwasher that isnt 100 out of the box.

Not Happy With This Dishwasher

baelliott 7/18/2022

I have had my dishwasher for a month now and I am very unhappy with it. I wish I had my old one back. The digital control panel is located on the front. My dishwasher is installed right where I do my prep work for cooking and bumping the buttons by accident always turns the dishwasher on. Very annoying. Accidentally bumping into the power button will turn the dishwasher off when running. This is also very annoying because I need to restart it and it starts at the beginning of the cycle all over again. Does not clean the dishes well. My old dishwasher was much better than this one.

Fantastic upgrade

HappylifewithLG 4/15/2022

We replaced a 22 year old dishwasher that my wife rarely used because it didnt clean the dishes well was noisy and she always anticipated that it would finally break down. Since I installed our new LG we have used it everyday first time we have ever used a dishwasher on a regular basis. The top rack works great for thongs and large utensils. This has become our favorite appliance. Thanks team LG for a great product.

Rob Davis 3/25/2022

I bought this two months ago and I love it so much. It is very quiet it has a third rack each rack has its own spray nozzle arm. With the quad cleaning system all the dishes come out sparkling clean. I also love that it does not have a heating element and that it uses a modern technology to dry the dishes.

High Quality Difficult Installation

ScottKS 3/23/2022

The is a high quality full-featured dishwasher. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because of the difficult installation. This is due to the channels on the bottom of the machine that are specific for Supply and Electrical. This means that you probably be rerouting both I had to totally run new electrical from the source box and cut a new hole in the cabinetry. It took me about 6 hours over two days to complete. My only concern about paying for installation: How many corners will they cut to save time? The front and rear leveling system is awesome..

Mrs Nell 3/4/2022

I purchased Nov 12 2021. Was to be delivered Dec 13 2021. Was delivered around 14th of Jan 2022. Long wait But love the dishwasher. Because we have granite counter tops also purchased from Home Depot the installers didnt anchor it. Have to have a handyman come and figure something out since it tips out sometimes. It is very quiet and the 3rd shelf is very useful.

Excellent best Dishwater

ed5132 2/22/2022

Bought this dishwasher a month ago after reviewing all kinds of brands out in the market. Cant say enough I pleased we are at our Seeing Eye Dog Kennel. So happy with the features where we can sanitize our bowls that we feed our dogs with and also the air or heat dry options to remove moisture. Large enough to accommodate even our largest water dishes. So many great features and options at price that we could afford with limited funds to purchase.

Looks good and works hard

Pensioner1 2/20/2022

My 20 year old dishwasher stopped working and chose this one after reading some details..it was actually one of four I decided to look at and was the only one available any time soon. I like this dishwasher and really like the way it looks in my kitchen but will admit it is a total new learning curve for me. It is extremely quiet cleans the dishes really well but does leave a lot of water on plastic but I gather thats a common problem but since I added the drying product the problem seems manageable.. Im still trying all the settings to find what I like best and cant do a hybrid because I dont have an android phone. Yes I would recommend this product and would buy it again. Would give 5 stars if not for the residual water issue..

Toots B 1/31/2022

Because of an accident that left our previous dishwasher unusable we were forced to search for a new one. Weve never owned a LG appliance of any kind but after a bit of investigation we were pretty comfortable making the decision to buy. After about 2 weeks of steady use the dishwasher has performed as good or better than expected. After learning the basics of operating the unit we are very pleased. The unit cleans well leaves no spots and is quieter than our previous unit. We would definitely recommend this dishwasher to anyone needing a new one
