I love my LG dishwasher, it has been a wonderful upgrade from prior GE Profile. The LG, can't be heard when running, in any cycle. I have used them all to test, so very happy with this, and notification bell when complete. The 3rd row is great, I wasn't sure if really needed, but I place all travel mug lids, tupper wear lids, and smaller items, and they remail in tack completely, no more falling to bottom and melting on the heating element. The top rack being adjustable has been an other added bonus, I cook a lot so to be able to place large pots, casserole dishes and such and be able to lift the top rack to adjust is just amazing. the bottom rack as the adjustable tines that will lay down so you can transform the bottom rack to hold any size item in position to maximize cleaning, and it remains in place, which is again wonderful considering glass items no longer are placed on their side and hold water in them, so when you get to putting it up you have a water line on the glassware. My wine glasses come out beautifully. The touch pad which is hidden when the dishwasher is closed is great as well, plus it notifies you when rinse aid is low, and shows clearly the cycle you are using and what is being brought into play while using this cycle. We love LG, and as the appliances are going in our house we are replacing them all with LG. I do hope this helps.

Typically, I am not one to write a review, but thought it was only fair to future shoppers, as I also rely on other's reviews when making most, but especially a substantial purchase. Not only do I want to educate future shoppers, but just maybe, LG and other manufacturers can learn more about consumers needs and desires and make the "ultimate" product for people with a lower than median income. While looking for a dishwasher, I had certain features in mind such as Reliability & Quality, wanting a third rack,, roomy & flexible rack configurations, a rinse and hold feature, steam and other key features without spending unreasonable amounts of cash. I choose this dishwasher mostly because of the reviews listed, and the "appearance" of rack configurations,. Also, it was significantly reduced due to it being offered as a "Special Buy". I will share with you what I liked about it. I like the way it cleaned dishes, though, it has long cycles which is understandable due to EPA regulations. The dishes were dry for the most part and the third rack seemed efficient, although there was one time I recall that items in this rack were not as clean as I anticipated, but in all fairness, they were knives used to cut into a block of cheese. I did like the removable trays in the 3rd rack as well, but found the third rack "a little dry" when pulling it out and pushing it back in to place. I also like the adjustable tines in the lower rack which helped accommodate odd shaped items. I also wish it had a pause feature, because if you attempt to add an item after the cycle is started, you will get wet opening the door as everything is still turning when the door is open. Now, I will share with you my experiences that made me dislike this product. The times in the lower rack were adjustable as noted but these tines feel flimsy, and I don't see them having much longevity. They also didn't maintain there position when adjusted, and drop down unintentionally when you are placing in dishes etc.. Also, plates and dishes didn't stand up well in these all "straight" tines and often rolled out of position and fell against each other when rolling in the rack. This was biggie for me and drove me nuts. I didn't chip any dishes, but they still should not need to be "repositioned" when closing up the dishwasher. I did like the steam function of this dishwasher, but the side placement seems to inhibit its ability to "hit" all the items in the lower rack. It is great if you have "that one" dish that needs to be steamed cleaned, but if you put a cookie sheet or large pan on the left side, it will block this feature. Would steam be better utilized at the back of the machine? How about up from the bottom? Also, while im talking about the lower rack, this may sound picky but I found the handle on the silverware basket obnoxious, and in the way. One would think it could be made to drop down and recess out of the way so the consumer can add utensils without working around this large handle. The middle rack also offers "an appearance" of flexibility but I found it the most frustrating. The adjustable rack to the left works great to accommodate the nestling of bowls, especially the 6 1/4" cereal bowls we use almost daily. BUT, that's a big BUT, because when you use this space for bowls, they interfere and take up to much room for glasses to the left and right of this space. Any cups such as coffee cups and mugs now hit and interfere with the nice bowl configuration. Forget about putting 16 oz "beer style" glasses or coffee cups on either side unless you don't mind them touching the bowls and gingerly fixing the bowls that "were" nestled so nicely. The wine glass holders/adj. rack are ineffective and were removed within the first week. To use this adjustable shelf for stemware requires you to place them at a 45 degree angle, which takes up much room and cause much wasted space. Speaking of wasting space, these shelves take up too much room even when folded up and out of the way. Out of the way? NOT. And the shelf under this flexible shelf is virtually useless, that is unless you were using green tea cups like most commonly found in Asian restaurants because that is all that would seem to fit on the right. Lastly, when the middle rack is full, there were times I wondered if it was going to drop out of place as it appeared to sag, and needed to be lifted back in place. I wondered if this was due to it not setting in properly after adjusting the height of the rack, but it didn't happen all the time and I didn't adjust the height of this rack often. Lastly, what was LG thinking when they put a non-removable sticker that appears to be a badge/emblem expressing its "10 Year" motor guarantee? Great placard if you are in the store and looking at the display and looking for value added features, but I don't want to see it in my kitchen until the end of this dishwashers days. This didn't make sense to me, and I guess it can be removed, but with great effort that could risk marring the dishwasher's finish. LG, please rethink this badge and make it a sticker. I am sorry LG if this seems like a rant, but I am being honest and reporting in-depth for your sake as well. I hope this review helps you in your decision for your next purchase.

Nice look, nice features, plus for our kitchen
from Granite Shoals, Tx
Comments about LG Integrated Built-In Stainless Dishwasher:
Bought this dishwasher about 6 weeks ago. I read reviews before the purchase and was a little apprehensive. The folding tines took some time to figure out what would work best, but this dishwasher has been a good addition to our kitchen. About some of the "death reviews" that I read.....some people really need to find something to gripe about. Some of the complaints were just that....complaints. I have had no bad experiences with this LG product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not so good
from New York, United States
Before I start let me tell you that I have many LG products. Two air conditioners, a washer and drier, an electric range, and a microwave. I have always looked at LG first when buying appliances, and have always been satisfied. This dishwasher is my first disappointment. When you open the door the control panel does not light up until you start to use it. When it is operating the control panel stays lit under the counter top where it can not be used.. It also has a blinking bright blue light that is like a light house in the kitchen. It would make more sense for the light to blink when the dishwasher is finished. Instead the light goes out at the end. Not deal breakers yet. The real issues are the racks. The top rack is for flat pieces and is on eight wheels none of which point in the same direction making it difficult to pull in and out. The middle rack is for glasses and small things. It is not really a friendly rack and many times the glasses do not stay where they belong. I have tried many configurations and none work. The silverware rack again is not really friendly. The bottom rack is the real problem. There is no good place for bowls or small plates. The large plates sort of fit but there is no support and a slight bump will cause them to fall over like dominoes. Again I have tried many configurations to no avail.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Cape Coral, FL, United States
I bought this 2 weeks ago and so far I can tell this is the best dishwasher ever....The only down side is the bottom shelf keeps coming out of the tracks.. Overall BEST OF THE BEST.
from Apex, NC, United States
We bought this dishwasher about 8 months ago and have not had any problems with it. By far it is the best dishwasher we have ever had! The dishes and utensils come out so clean so much than the other dishwasher we had before.

Cleans Great but Poor Rack Design
from North Dakota, United States
I love the black stainless finish. It looks sharp and the surface cleans easily. The dishwasher cleans the dishes nicer than any dishwasher I have ever had. I LOVE the extra rack in the top for knives or utensils. That is great feature. That said the rack for the glasses is a terrible design. It is flimsy and I have already broken several glasses. It is hard to load and the adjustable slots do not stay in position. I also find the lower rack to be flimsy. The adjustable racks fall down all the time. It is unfortunate that the shelves as substandard as this dishwasher cleans the dishes perfectly. I can't recommend this because of the poor quality racks.
from Coral Springs, FL, United States
We purchased this appliance about 2 months ago. Only problem is some water remains on cups and glasses.
Very quiet dishwasher!
The dishwasher runs very quiet. You barely can hear it running. However it takes a long time for a regular cycle...2.25hr. Wish that we can remove the kids to the utensil caddy to give more flexibility. Otherwise, we're very happy with it.
Dishes are soaking wet and very flimsy design.
from PA, United States
We have several LG items in our home and are very happy with them. When my dishwasher broke, I went with the LG due to the quality of the other products. This is the worst dishwasher that I have ever owned. The extra dry feature does nothing to dry the dishes. I need to hand dry everything in the top rack. The 3rd rack doesn't get anything clean, and the bottom rack is constantly coming out of alignment. I also can't believe that there is no "clean" light after the cycle is finished so that we know not to put dirty dishes in a clean load. There is a chime to signal that the dishes are clean but that only helps if you happen to be standing in the kitchen at that exact moment.
Would not buy again!
from Bennettsville, SC, United States
This dishwasher was designed poorly, if the designer had to use this everyday, I'm sure it would not be so bad. First, the bottom rack constantly comes off track, second, the collapsible holders are not aligned to where a row of bowls will nest properly. On the plus side, it does a fantastic job of cleaning dishes, and is very quiet.
from White Bear Lake, MN, United States
I love the look and all the features and options this dishwasher offers. The 3rd rack is a really cool option that I didn't see on any other models.
