"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.

LG Dishwasher

LWing 12/20/2020

We have had this for 3 years now and all the dish racks have started to rust. The plastic/rubberized material has come off on its own and rust has developed. On EVERY Rack in only 3 years.. Previously had other brands dishwashers for more than 10 years and never saw anything like this.. POOR QUALITY MATERIALS

Unused and Broken

Maine user 12/17/2020

My wife and I purchased the gas stove refrigerator and dishwasher as a black stainless steel set for our new house. While the other two appliances work wonderfully the dishwasher has never been used. Discovered only after installation a plastic seal was broken and water flooded the first floor. We ordered a part and replaced the broken piece but now the motor light is on. Clearly we got a lemon.

Cleans well

Samuel2U 12/12/2020

The washer cleans well the dry cycle works poorly even when you select extra dry. It operates very quietly. Biggest Problem the finish started peeling off black chrome my Best Buy extended warranty would not correct they do not correct cosmetic problems LG did replace the door kudos to LG. A secondary problem is the dish racks the plastic covering peels off and the interior metal frame rusts away. The lower rack has been replaced 2 times in 4 years.

Easy to clean and very quiet. I love the adjustable racks as well. Definitely the best dishwasher I have had. Only issue ius that the black chrome paint on it does start to peel over time.

This dishwasher was part of an appliance upgrade in my kitchen. I have enjoyed using it as it really cleans well and is very quiet to operate.

Constant repairs

Saibot 12/7/2020

My LG dishwasher is now close to 4 years old. I had the seal around the dishwasher replaced due to leaking on hardwood floor. Four months later leaking again due to an internal hose cracked and leaking on hardwood floor. Had to pay service call again because over 90 days. We have a LG refrigerator and gas range thought LG was the top of the line but I was definitely incorrect.

not what is advertised

cpland 7/20/2020

Soon after we purchased the dishwasher parts just started coming off starting with the upper rack plastic pieces that position the racks. We have had to continuously attempt to put it back together and deal with racks that no longer adjust. It doesnt rinse well which is one of the reasons we purchased the dishwasher. We use the rinse aid as directed. The spray arms have come off with many pieces just simply breaking. Very disappointed since we thought we were purchasing a quality dishwasher.

Janki 7/9/2020

Quality of Parts is not good. Have issue with Tines in the rack. Then the soap dispenser broke. Now the Door Latch broke so cant lock the dishwasher and operate it. The Cutlery rack is rusting too.

No rust racks always rust

Billy_47 6/22/2020

Do not purchase this item if you are planning on keeping it longer than a year. The pump makes a high pitch noise and all the racks rust including the to silverware rack that metals do not touch. Called when we first noticed and only received 1 rack even though all 3 are rusting. Now they state that we used our one time part complaint then hung up when I stated that our first call was for all 3 racks. Luckily we purchased this at Best Buy and have the Geek Squad protection to compensate for the nonsense LG pushes as customer service. LG will no longer be part of our future appliance choices.

Front Cover is peeling

Tonnny 3/24/2020

My dishwasher is only about 3 years old and the thing is peeling off the coat near the left handle. There must be a manufacture defect internally causing for this area to start peeling like other folks who have commented about this problem. LG please help and fix my product with a new cover Thanks

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.

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.
