IT STINKSSSSS
by: Anonymous

The dishwasher doesn't clean the dishes even after prewashing by hand. The dishes STINK and before it is run the smell is so bad you only want to do the dishes with the windows open and the fan on. Worst piece of junk I ever bought. I wish I hadn't given away the old GE at least is it didn't stink!

Life is not good
by: Terry

I have had three motors for the pump installed the dishwasher is only 2 years old. They seem to have a life of 8 to 10 months. I was looking at other sites and a lot of people are having the same problem. The repair guy told me this is very common with this dishwasher. In 8 months when it happens again it is going to the dump. Wont buy an LG til they figure out how to make a better quality product.

LG NEVER AGAIN!
by: Anonymous

THIS DISHWASHER IS THE WORST DISHWASHER I HAVE EVER OWNED. IT SMELLS AWFUL ALL THE TIME AND DISHES HAVE TO BE RE-WASHED ALL THE TIME. I ALSO PURCHASED A MATCHING FRIDGE AND THAT IS ALSO JUNK. I WILL NEVER AGAIN PURCHASE A LG PRODUCT.

all over bad
by: Gary

What a piece of junk from top to bottom!
From the nearly impossible installation due to the larger / deeper cabin, to the extremely poor job of cleaning the dishes - we rinse each dish before loading and still have to rewash 25% of them after running. At less than 3 years old we have given up on it and gone back to handwashing until we can afford to buy a real dishwasher. Stay away from LG - maybe they can make cell-phones but they make a terrible dishwasher!
