LG Appliance Bundle Savings Rebate

Offer Expires: 1/5/2023 to 3/1/2023 Must be postmarked by: 6/1/2023

Receive a 10% rebate with purchase of qualifying LG Appliance Bundle. Rebate form must be postmarked by 6/1/2023.

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.

Quiet good job cleaning

SDRAMBLER 1/29/2023

This dishwasher was delivered 3 weeks ago and I have used it 3 times. It does a good job cleaning but dishes do not dry completely. I havent used the top shelf. I do like that it is quiet.

So Nice

FL22 1/28/2023

I really thought I wanted the extra top row in my new dishwasher but I think it is the thing I like the least about this model Everything else I love The look of the model is so sleek and it is a nice compliment in our kitchen. The performance is amazing. Our dishes are spotless and there is quite a bit of room for dishes. The top row/tier does not allow for tall glasses to fit in the second rack thus my love-hate relationship with the third row but it is great for laying out flat kitchen utensils for a good cleaning. Overall we are very satisfied with this purchase.

Poor drying

GThomson 1/25/2023

Ive had this dishwasher for about 5 weeks now. There are many settings and I havent tried all of them yet. I started with a turbo wash for a small loud. The dishes were still wet after the cycle. I tried normal wash after that. Same result. I read that using rinse aid would help with drying. It did not. I then tried the extended drying option I forget exactly what its called. After THREE HOURS the dishes were still not completely dry. This machine cost 1000 bucks after installation and haul away of my VERY OLD dishwasher which I already miss.

Good washer poor design.

Stang is underwhelmed 1/24/2023

Functions as youd expect and does the job. My issue is the control panel/ handle. I wish I had thought about it prior to the purchase. If I had I would have gone with a model with an actual hand bar to open the door. I chose this for the clean look and not having a handle that extends away from the door. Problem is the handle is the control panel that is made from plastic and they did not think to support it in this area. Less than one year into owning this unit and the plastic cracked. It was repaired under the warranty but A E factory service was a nightmare to deal with in my experience the technician was good but the company not so much.

Clean quiet but not silent top tray is nice

photobug56 1/17/2023

Its much less noisy then our previous but not silent. If you hear real noise look inside. I like the 3rd top rack nice for knives tongs. Auto cycle 2:54 so not fast. Detergent release well thought out. Tines on main racks too low for us dont hold dishes well. Cleans much better than were used to. Different but overall good silverware rack.

Not quiet

K silly d 1/15/2023

This dishwasher is sleek interior is stainless steel. Drawback there is no short cycle. Normal cycle is 2 hours and 51 minutes. It is a noisy dishwasher so do your dishes before bedtime. This dishwasher washes well. The only thing is that Sometimes the plastic container may still be wet after the cycle is complete.

Washes ok but needs better control panel

JAX1 1/15/2023

We got a great deal when we bought this dishwasher three months ago as part of LG stainless steel bundle including a microwave and stove. The dishwasher does a good job of cleaning dishes so far and we are happy with that. The major disappointment is the function buttons are on the control panel door face and are very difficult to find and read especially in the evening. You almost need a flashlight to find them. LG makes a model that has the control panel on the top of the dishwasher door and it may be a better model? Also the finish notification is loud long and very disturbing in the middle of the night.

Courtney K 1/8/2023

I have to say I do love all my LG products. My dishwasher a year old is currently broken. Drain pump issue. Luckily it was still under warranty. I think it shouldve lasted longer. LG hires out repair. The technician informed me we will have to pull out the dishwasher because the dishwasher isnt even with the floor.

A Lemon

Feelin Sour 1/5/2023

I dont know what happened maybe they gave me an already returned machine but literally nothing worked right. The buttons were too difficult to push. No matter which cycle I tried the machine kept just turning itself off after running only a couple minutes the soap dispenser didnt dispense the soap and it wouldnt drain. Then within a couple weeks it wouldnt even turn on- it just died. The couple times it did work the dishes came out sparkling but mostly it just didnt work. I had to return it and I purchased another brand. Maybe I just bought a lemon? I have an LG washer/dryer set and those work great. I cannot however recommend their dishwasher because of the above. I did like the 3rd drawer feature really well- so I made sure my new one had that feature also.

Dishwasher Has All the Features Needed

BeccMc327 1/5/2023

I bought this dishwasher to replace a 20 year old one. It is so quiet I cannot hear it ten feet away. It has many features that I will use. I used the half load feature and it cleaned the dishes. I did take the top silverware rack out because I will never need to use it. The bottom rack will hold large pots and pans along with plates. I have used the half rack feature. It worked. When I washed large pans you could hear the spray hitting the pans.

Good washer - hard to read dash

tifalman 1/5/2023

Does a good job on washing all dishes and utensils. Basically quiet operation except for when the water is forced out and into the piping system. That is noticeably loud but not unduly so. I have difficulties with ready the front dash where all the buttons are located. If they were on top it would be easier to read on the front there is often not enough light to enable see the various buttons clearly.

So-so Dishwasher

Deb1234567890 1/5/2023

I bought this dishwasher as part of package during a sale event with a LG fridge which we love. It replaced a 30-year-old Amana. It does not perform as well as my old dishwasher - dishes come out damp even when using a rinse aid the tub remains wet when I load it. It needs to be cracked open for a day to dry out the tub and dishes. Also it takes over 2 hours to run a cycle. My old Amana was under an hour and the dishes always came out dry. I also do not like the tone of the warning chimes - it is too high pitched to hear for those of us with some hearing loss. The front buttons are in the way when Im using the counter and I turn on the power frequently. Right now even though it had minor blemishes and looked older I wish we still had our 30 year old dishwasher. It performed better than the new LG.

Not happy with my service

Carol Tillman 1/1/2023

I purchased a dishwasher on July 202w and installed in august. Has never drained properly. Had five people come out from either lowes or lg and still not draining properly the last guy that came out left me and said I could just use a bucket to drain the water in. Apparently I need a pipe cut and the drain rerouted but no technician will complete this job. I am a recent widow and know that if my husband were still alive he would have made sure this was fixed months ago but as I am relying on lowes and lg to make this right it is taking forever.

Does the dishes well once you figure out the features by trial and error. The manual takes one so far but then drops you at the last important steps. And the online manual does the same incomplete job.

avoid

RAA116 12/27/2022

The LG dishwasher is different from most. It seems to be constructed as well as the others. But its functionality is not as good as the others. First of all it does not dry the dishes completely. Even when selecting the Extra Dry option. There is not a heating element for drying the dishes. I am very displeased with their hybrid drying system. The LG food disposer is awkward at best. I have had may dishwashers over the years. This one is not up that standards of the others. I would not recommend this dishwasher. I would definitely encourage people not to buy this unit
