"Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Dishwashers"


Design is all in the finish.

Channel your inner designer to create your ideal custom kitchen with the new LG Virtual Designer


Flawless new finish lets your style shine.

Deep yet brilliantly appealing, LG Black Stainless Steel Series brings an undeniable luster to kitchens. It elevates the traditional stainless steel look that's become the standard in today's homes with a satin-smooth, warm and sophisticated finish-a timeless expression that pairs beautifully with any style or color.


Easy Loading, Maximum Flexibility

The newly-enhanced EasyRack Plus system provides outstanding flexibility and convenience, adjusting to just about any load of dishes to help ensure optimal cleaning performance. Easy to adjust on-the-fly, this racking system can shift to handle any challenge your dishes can serve up.


Step Up to the 3rd Rack

The height adjustable 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to small espresso cups.


Quiet Operation

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced self-cleaning filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 42dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.


Split Personality

Enables users to vary the intensity in the upper and lower racks (e.g. delicates in the upper rack, and pots & pans in the lower rack with strong setting), accommodating different items in the same load.


Count on it

When you buy a dishwasher, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.

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.

Rack rusted an fell apart within two years.

5447355382 10/8/2019

Dishwasher leaks around door seal. Its a small leak so not a big deal but do get dried soap residue on floor. Like others have posted the top rack began rusting and falling apart before the dishwasher was even two years old.

Quiet and nice but...

Sergirl73 3/22/2019

I have had this dishwasher for 1 1/2 years and during the drying process it smells oil I thought would go away after a few washes but it still stinks. And I really wish I could shut those bright blue lights off while its running

Not worth the money

McGov 11/7/2018

Our dishwasher is barely 2 years old. The black stainless finish is coming off the front of the door and multiple prongs on both upper and lower racks have fallen off and are rusting. We paid a lot of money for these appliances and I would expect this kind of wear and tear on a 10-15 dishwasher.....not one that is not even 2 years old.

Difficult to read buttons without flashlight.

DonnaMarie 4/11/2018

Ok so Im old. While every other feature of this dishwasher is wonderful to me it cleans so well is so very adaptable and interior is stainless which makes it easy to clean when I have to the lack of backlighting on the buttons at the top of the door is frustrating to me. Without a flashlight even in broad daylight due to the countertop casting shadow I cant read the buttons to know which to press for what Ive put inside. This to me is a flaw. The company could have backlit all with brighter light for selected button. If they fixed this I would be raving over how great this dishwasher is. As it is make sure you have a flashlight if youre older than 30 or a light strip just at the counter level.

Steam dishwasher

ming2s 2/23/2018

According to the instruction the dishwasher has a sanitary funtion. It actually doesnt have the button for that. The bottom rack easily came out of the track and all the racks are not smooth to push and pull. Also I had to replace a top dish rack because vinyale cover came off and became rusty only 6 months. It seems like not sure but there is residual detergent remained in cups. When puring water in the cup after using the washer create bubbles. I have to rinse the cups to use manually before I use them. It feels drinking detergent.
