    Good and Quiet dishwasher

    We mainly replaced our old dishwasher because it was dated and white colored. I was a little apprehensive because our old one wasn't broken, cleaned and dried dishes well. But as we gradually have remodeled our kitchen, it definitely looked old and out of place. After seeing the LG discounted to $629.99 we decided it was time to upgrade. After using it for 2 weeks, we love the way it looks and actually prefer the looks over many more expensive units and even Bosch brands. It cleans dishes well, although takes a bit more time than out older unit but is extremely quiet! I couldn't believe how quiet it was and thought it wasn't operating. After years of becoming accustomed our loud dishwasher it's a nice relief to have this unit. We also really like having the third rack for knives and other utensils. The main drawbacks of this unit is that the normal wash time is about 2 -1/2 hours, our old unit would be done in under 2 hours. The additional time isn't the main frustration, it's the fact after that time not all the dishes are completely dry, there would still be a few drips here and there. The unit does have an extra dry option which will stretch the time to 2 -3/4 hours but it still isn't completely dry which is just annoying. I believe the heating element isn't as good as my old unit as the plates would be quite warm from the old unit compared the LG. I don't overload the LG unit so there should be ample room to dry dishes and utensils. In the end, we just have to get a extra cloth to wipe off the few drips of water here and there but definitely wished it was completely dry like our old unit. But I'm sure this unit likely uses less water and energy compared to our old 20 year unit.

    Great dishwasher though a tad slow

    Cleans & dries well & easy to operate. It is much slower though than the machine it replaced (granted that was a Kitchenaid that cost over $1k), taking nearly 3 hours on auto. There is a turbo mode that I haven’t tried yet. We generally run it overnight so speed isn’t a big deal. The machine is quiet, maybe just a hair louder (if that) than the much more expensive Kitchenaid. Installation from Best Buy was fast & easy, though we did need to get a GCCI outlet installed which we were not aware of which the installation people charged an extra $125 for

    New QuadWash DW delivered 6-7-21

    I purchased this for my home elsewhere and haven't used the machine, but watched a video of the installers who ran the machine, (sent from my property mgr. who was there to accept the delivery.) She reported that they checked everywhere for leaks and it was good to go! For now I give it 4 stars for a successful 1st run of it. haha.. I will be better able to rate this new DW after someone is living there again. Also the installer called my property mgr. at my home 10am that morning and also called me in Hawaii (4am) to confirm his arrival. Very prompt service. I tried to post the video of them showing the aftermath of washing, but couldnl't.

    I am very happy with looks and for been a quitest operation, but it doesn't dry at all. I set up on Extra dry for 3 hours and 11 min, and still water is dripping all over the dishes. I just replace my 20 years GE dishwasher which it dries and wash perfectly, expecting much better service on this one, and I am little disappointed.

    I’ve had this machine for a few weeks and I am so upset at its awful performance. The dishes do not come out clean…ever. I always rinse them thoroughly and they never have dried food or funk. BUT they always come out just as dirty as they went in. I’ve used every single setting and the hottest water possible but it just sucks. Also not having a drying feature is awful. There’s no heating element so you just wait and wait and wait and the dishes never dry unless you open the door and put a fan on it. For the price, this is a piece of garbage.

    Purchased an open box Satisfactory dishwasher that does not operate correctly, leaves dishes drenched and not clean. Highly frustrated with the “customer service” I received which was a waste of my time as they did not help in any way shape nor form.

    I love it. It’s so quiet and it gets everything so clean! I can’t believe I suffered with the one I had for so long, which I bought brand new. It was never as nice or as quiet as this LG. The 3 racks are so helpful especially that the middle one has an adjustable height. If you have tall pots, pitchers or tall vases, the middle rack can move up or down (see below). I’m very happy with this purchase. I waited a couple of months to review it just to be sure.

    Delivery of this item was late. Would prefer if delivery window could be narrowed down. My window was 7 AM to 1 PM (as I recall). Item wasn’t delivered until after 3:30 PM with no notification until I called for status. Front of dishwasher has a scratch on it. Disappointed!! Item itself runs fine. Product is fine.

    Loving my new dishwasher! It is so much quieter than my previous one. And I love the look of the stainless steel interior. I was not looking for a third rack which this one has, but I have used it on occasion and like that I can remove the rack if I choose. The installation went very smoothly and I was glad it was delivered within two weeks of purchase. At another big name store it was going to be six months.

    A dishwasher is easier to install than you might think. YouTube is so awesome! This dishwasher really was a breeze to install. It is print proof, just as advertised. The front display is nice. Our previous model had everything hidden along the top of the door, which I honestly don't like as much. This unit isn't noisy but it's not super quiet either. It's louder than our previous dishwasher but it's not something I mind. The dishes stack differently than our previous machine. It seems a tad smaller once everything is stacked, which is the biggest downside for us. We just need to get used to it. The dishwasher is good, not great.

    We have been using this Dishwasher now for almost a month. Upon reading the instructions it told us not to rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, something we have always done. So we followed the directions and to our surprise the dishes came out clean and sparkling. In addition, we have enjoyed how quiet it is. The install was easy and so far we are enjoying it. The last dishwasher that we had placed the controls on the top of the door. This one is on the front of the door which we prefer. Last thing worth mentioning is the finish on the front is easy to keep clean which is a definite plus!

    This dishwasher is silent while running, until it’s complete. At that point a musical announcement comes from the dishwasher to announce END! There is a top shelf that slides out. It’s approximately an inch deep! I use it for knives that I don’t want damaged, plastic Tervis lids, plastic spoons and other things that need extra care. Stainless steal interior for more heat and silence while running!

    Cleaning Up

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    We bought this LG to replace a 25 year old dishwasher. We like the stainless steel interior and the third tray which can hold knives, spatulas and other flatter utensils. The LG does a good job cleaning and drying. We use the normal cycle with extra heat. We are very pleased with the dishwasher. The installation was not so good. The installer said our opening was not deep enough. When he installed the unit it stuck out beyond the cabinets by about 2 inches. According to all the measurements and dimensions it should fit perfectly. I wasn't impressed with the installer and we let him leave. Once gone I checked the situation and found he had run the hose behind the deepest part of the dishwasher which would not allow it to go all the way into the opening. I moved the hose down to the area where the unit is notched out for connections. Problem solved.

    Great, Great and Great!

    So far - Great! I read the reviews before I purchased and picked up this LG Dishwasher at Best Buy. I am rarely completely influenced by reviews. Possibly, the few negative reviews I read arise because it takes some study of the Control Panel and Operating Manuel to figure out how you want the dishes and pots washed. My wife spent time on doing this and the machine does exactly what you program! Another reason I got this machine is because we bought an LG Clothes Washer and Dryer and they are also Great! One other tricky setting you may want to try for saving energy and extending the life of this machine is using the "short wash". If you just lightly rinse your dirty dishes and pots you can then set the Short Washing Cycle down to 34 minutes, But the major part of the trick is to then set the program to Air Dry instead of Heat Dry to get the cycle down to 34 minutes. My wife decided to also use the FINISH Jet Dry Rinse Aid for spotting. I thought the dishes looked OK before using the Rinse Aid but I am a man? As for quiet - buy a Stethoscope!!

    We are very happy with our new dishwasher. It really gets the dishes clean! It takes longer to run a cycle than our old one but I have been running it overnight. I didn't think that I needed the third rack on top but, I am using it every time and would definitely recommend it. It was a little difficult to find the white color, in stock, in our area. We were very pleased to find it at Best Buy.

    Time Will Tell

    We've only had this a month or so, but initial impressions are as follows: 1. Tried auto cycle first, found it to be lengthy and sort of surprisingly noisy. Switched to the normal cycle the 2nd day, it's quicker, quieter and gets the dishes very clean. Guessing we'll probably never even mess with the other cycles. 2. This is a nice machine, but I'd say the racks are of lesser quality than in the Bosch unit it replaced. Nothing wrong w/them, and the wheels do have good steel axles, they just aren't as heavy duty feeling. 3. Unlike some other machines we've had, the upper shelf is a breeze to raise and lower and that's a handy thing when you need to wash some larger than average thing. 4. If you've never had a dishwasher w/a 3rd rack and/or one that dries w/o that infernal heating element at the bottom of the tub, I highly recommend both features. The third rack handles all the silverware and leaves the rest of the dishwasher for nothing but dishes, and no heating element means you can put plastic stuff on the bottom rack w/o the fear of melting it. BOTTOM LINE... we had to find a white dishwasher w/the desired features in the middle of the "everything scarcity" caused by the ongoing microchip shortage. We felt lucky to find this in stock at the BestBuy website, and it was delivered in perfect condition in just a few days. We don't know yet if it'll last as long or longer than some others we've had, but it has been doing its job very nicely every single day so far.

    A worthy upgrade.

    This was a replacement for a Bosch Ascenta 100 that was over eight years old, my point of comparison. The LG's motor is a tiny bit quieter, but the noise of water flowing in is a little louder. The cycle times for the LG on an Auto cycle are right in a two hours and twelve minutes, thirteen longer than the Bosch. But the dishes are equally clean, and the third shelf is a miracle. All the small flat items that fought for space next to the coffee cups and glassware now have their own home. The tub is fully stainless, nicer than the Bosch "hybrid" tub. I'm pleased with the upgrade, but sad to only figure out the simple cleaning of a switch on the Bosch on the way to the donation center.
