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.

Scott the homeowner 9/24/2022

This dishwasher was easy to install. Ive been using it for a few weeks now and its been working great. My old dishwasher would leave dishes smelling of soap sometimes but they come out clean and with no odor. What more can you ask for?

Great until it started leaking

Serenity203 9/22/2022

Weve owned this dishwasher for a little over a year and it was great until it started leaking. Weve had multiple repairmen over and they all say there is a design flaw. When the dishwasher is on dry mode the fan on the door causes about a cup of water to occasionally drip down the front of the dishwasher onto the floor. We have new hardwood floors so naturally were a little unhappy. Our only solution is to either run the dishwasher on express or leave a bowl under the door to collect the water. Needless to say we will not be buying this model again.

I bought my LG dishwasher three weeks ago and am pleased with how many dishes pots and containers I can fit in one wash. It dries exceptionally well and I am really happy with the night feature that keeps the dishes free from condensation until I open the dishwasher door in the morning.

LG Dishwasher - Extremely Noisy

Rdesaraju 9/12/2022

LG Dishwasher model LDFN4542S that I bought less than a month ago. Few days of use and it started throwing all the weird noise and too loud. Does not drain well and leaves moisture on almost all the dishes and the top 3rd rack one can find their spoons/spatulas. all wet. I have a very bad experience with the customer service so far. Its almost 2 weeks and no proper solution being provided. Very upset with this purchase and shall not recommend.

Poor Design

Dishwasher Loader 9/4/2022

The lower rack accommodates a lot of dishes but the tines are so close together that nothing else fits. I like one wider row in the back for cereal bowls Pyrex CorningWare and other serving containers. Additionally dinner plates are loaded in the opposite direction so they slip out of my hands. They should face me. The controls are not user friendly either. Some need to be pushed twice to select the function.

Returned it.

Fauxwindsock 9/3/2022

Returned detergent dispenser would not open during the wash. Attempted to get service. After two weeks of trying to get LG to decide who if any serviced our location Lowes let me return it. The dishes did not dry well. The unit was noisier than the one it replaced. I only purchased it to match a new LG refrigerator. Replaced returned unit with upgraded LG model.

Very Solid Feel - Excellent Features

Jbsman001 9/3/2022

Weve had this dishwasher about 6 weeks and are very happy with it. Easy to use electronic controls and operating options. Was a little concerned on how well it would dry dishes and plastics but with the extra-dry option everything comes out nice and dry. We like the nite-dry setting for leaving dishes in overnight. I do wish the utensil tray handle was on the side of the tray not in the middle blocking several baskets. I removed the handle for better access to the baskets. Installation was no problem but I do have several comments/recommendations regarding the drain hose. First the recess in the drain hose connector end that fits on a disposal is too shallow at about 3/4 inch. My old one was 1 1/4 inches. It would not take much even with the hose clamp to have it pull off and flood the cabinet. Second Im not sure why there is a drain hose within a drain hose. It makes the whole hose assembly very rigid and hard to make the anti siphon loop and then a 90 to connect to the disposal. Third and it applies to the thick somewhat rigid drain hose I would rather see room behind the washer to let the hose come up and into the cabinet high on the sidewall. I followed the instructions and drilled a hole in the floor of my sink cabinet according to the template. It now occurs to me that if I ever had a water leak in that cabinet water will flow down under the base/toe kick area and be very hard to clean up/dry. Cutting a hole in the bottom of a cabinet seems to be a very bad idea and Im sorry I did it.

Disappointed customer 33 9/3/2022

The dishwasher is ok. Does not dry the dishes all the way. Tried all the settings and same results. There is an awful smell coming from the dishwasher. Smells like mold or stagnant water. The dishwasher is leveled and drains very good. Disappointed that the dishwasher does not dry the dishes and the dishwasher is always wet.

Se625 9/1/2022

I like how sturdy the built in handle feels on this mode. Most built like this fee like youre going to pull the front of the dishwasher off. But not this one. Cleans good and runs quiet. 4 stars because depending on what is loaded in it sometimes it does get a lot louder than expected.

Sandy Sims 8/30/2022

Im loving my new dishwasher. It is so quiet that you can hardly tell when its running. The two problems that I have are that the power button is sensitive. Its positioned just under my counter work station and sometimes just leaning against it will turn it on. The other is with filling the drying agent. The booklet and online instructions are very vague on this subject as well as some others. When Im pouring in the liquid it will run down the door when it is closed. Indicating that it maybe too full. But then the icon will flash after one wash showing it needs more drying agent. What am I doing wrong here?

Calvin Carroll 8/28/2022

Con: You have to bend over to see the cycle still had to seeNoisy when on high temperatures especially when using the quad wash.Also the insulation that over the tub not fasten to hold it in place just laying on it.Also there is a gap between the top of it about a .-5 - 1 inch does not fit the opening of it.The Door wold be better if it open when finishing drying with the fan pulling the moisture out and turning off.Pro: Does clean all three racks.

Lynnie02 8/26/2022

I wanted a dishwasher with buttons on front panel quiet and energy saver. This fit the bill and looks nice. However it does not have a heat element so if you do not remove the dishes before going to bed you wake up in the morning with the dishes wet from condensation. The condensation also leaves water marks on the stainless steel interior front panel. Good thing--it is very quiet.
