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.

Whisper Quiet Best Dishwasher Ive Ever Owned

Juffowup 7/31/2021

Absolute best features: Really really quiet - so quiet I thought it was broken the first time I used it - and most user-friendly controls Ive ever used. I dont think I can ever go back to one of those top-mounted control schemes for a dishwasher after seeing how well this ones front-mounted version works Also good features: The third top rack is great not just for silverware but also for other mostly flat items tupperware lids kids straws etc.. Overall design of the unit is very clean and modern looks great with other stainless steel appliances. Odd choices: The song this thing plays when its done is kind of a weird choice but its not terrible. Cons: The drying function is not the most consistent but Ive yet to meet a dishwasher that handles that task well. As with most LG products the price is a bit on the high side but the quality is fantastic not really a con - you get what you pay for generally.

Nice features but smells

Bschro9349 7/25/2021

Weve had this dishwasher about a month now. It is quiet. And does a good job cleaning the dishes. If also has nice features. However tha normal wah cycle takes over an hour which I think is a long time and it started smelling bad after about 2 weeks of use. The filter was was clean so it must hold water below out of sight to cause the smell.

Works Well with Good Features

David90 7/20/2021

Bought this two weeks ago and so far am very happy. It gets everything very clean. No issues there. The half load option is great for running a quick wash on breakfast and lunch dishes so you have the full dishwasher available for dinner dishes. Love the ability to move the middle rack up and down for various items that need to be washed on the upper rack. Love the third rack for utensils and knives. Turbo mode washes in one hour works really well. I also love the fork knife and spoon holder on the bottom rack. No matter the style of silverware you have itll fit and it fits 10 sets on each side plus room for other items in the middle sections. Only thing that doesnt work so well is the overnight drying function. Still find lots of water on my cups and other dishes. But just opening the door once its done seems to reduce that issue greatly.

Much more than I expected

Bob2254 7/20/2021

I have owned this great dishwasher for over a month now and I couldnt be more pleased. I have never owned a dishwasher that I was comfortable not precleaning the dishes before running a cycle not only not precleaning but setting in the dishwasher for a day prior to running. The unit runs so quiet I hardly know its running. The list goes on but one more thing Ill mention is my old machine left a light coating of chalky residue which is not present in this dishwasher. Great Dishwasher.

Kaki4884 7/16/2021

I have had this dishwasher three weeks and it taking a while to try out all the extra features. First 2 washes I had issues with the dishes drying but figured out to keep it on high heat and it has been good so far. The third rack is great to have.You absolutely need to use a rinse aid in this machine. I tried it one time without one and it was a disaster. Read the book for all info. I do like the little music it plays at the beginning and end of the cycle. Looks very sleek and stylish and is perfect in my kitchen.

NYStan 7/9/2021

We bought this appliance because we updated our kitchen. Great look and very quite. We really like the fact that the second or upper rack is adjustable. It can be adjusted to accommodate larger pieces that need to be laid down to wash. The third tray for silverware is great. It does not scratch the silverware like in a basket where they would bang against each other.

Whoami4341 7/9/2021

Dishwasher works excellently however the front panel controls are too sensitive. When the machine is running it can easily be turned off by touching he controls with your body.perhaps some sort of lock device could be part of the controls to prevent accidental interruption.

Poorly designed

CLyons 7/5/2021

I am so disappointed in this dishwasher. Compared to the one I had to replace after many years of good service this one is unacceptable. The dishes do not dry well and the racks are designed in a way that really limits the way you can load dishes. There is no accessory to safely wash stemware in the top rack and the bottom rack has only 4 rows of tines compared to my previous dishwasher that had 7 rows allowing for placement of all shapes and sizes of plates bowl etc. I plan to return it for a refund.

GrandmaK 6/27/2021

As far as the dishwasher we are pleasantly surprised at how quiet and efficient it is. Had to keep checking if it were on because it was so quiet. Also just wiped dishes to get any food particles off and not rinsed them to see what it could do. like sticky oatmeal residue They were all clean I mean clean and that was on the regular wash cycle. So far am very pleased. Never had one like this before that cleaned so well and was so quiet. It also places dishes cups glasses etc. well. Bowls have a bit of a problem.

I am loving our dishwasher. It has been the perfect addition to my updated kitchen. It is so quiet easy to fit a lot into and the third rack is a dream come true.

Verrinza 6/21/2021

Wash cycle time is much too long 2+ hours unless you select turbo. The top rack for glasses is not deep enough to accommodate taller glasses. My older 15 years dishwasher had a section in the top rack for taller glasses. I thought that was a standard to allow for all heights of glasses. The button panel is sensitive to the touch so need not rube against the dishwasher selection panel.

My family just moved into a fixer upper. It took time to get the kitchen useable. Being without a dishwasher for 3 months put so much time into our day just doing dishes and pots and pans. The new LG dishwasher has freed up my day and given me more time to do the things Id like to do. The stainless finish puts a nice clean look into the kitchen. Thank you LG

Rob5085 6/10/2021

Bought my first LG dishwasher Model LDS5540ST on March 31 2015. On April 26 2021 the machine ruptured along the bottom spilling water on my kitchen floor and into the basement below causing substantial damage. LG denied responsibility since warranty had expired. Since all of my major appliances are LG I decided to order another LG dishwasher. The new D/W Model LDFN4542S was delivered and installed on May 14. 2021. However after about 20 minutes of operation the new machine failed with an OE code. I contacted the Installer MiD Inc. who said a new machine would be provided. The new machine was delivered and installed on May 28 2021. But like the first one the machine stalled with an OE code after about 20 minutes. Suspecting it was not a machine problem I called a local plumber who arrived promptly and solved the problem in about 5 minutes. It seems both Installers had attached the drain hose to the food disposal but failed to first remove the factory-installed plug in the disposal. The plumber removed the plug and the D/W began working properly. Not sure why the Installers were not aware of this requirement. After about 2 weeks the D/W is still working and performing exceptionally well. I still like the features of the machine and just hope the failure that occurred in my first LG D/W does not happen in my new one. If not I will give my new machine a much higher rating.
