Pros & Cons
The LG Electronics Front Control Dishwasher with Stainless Steel Tub is a quality built product that washes and dries dishes very well. It works efficiently and runs quietly to do its job. At 48 dBA, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class. A newly enhanced EasyRack System easily adjusts on-the-fly with color coded, fully adjustable tines to accommodate up to 14 place settings. This LG Dishwasher features 5 wash cycles and 5 wash levels for flexible cleaning options.
The dishes are sure to come out clean and dry with the heating feature of the dishwasher. Stainless steel tub gives a premium look and resists corrosion, with the help of LG's Hybrid Condensing Drying system, that circulates air from outside the dishwasher through the tub. The stainless steel tub also assists to deliver outstanding drying performance by providing higher heat retention
However, many user reviews mention that dish racks don't seem very well designed since the plates and dishes keep falling. Also, some users find that this dishwasher takes a lot of time to clean the dishes. What is more convenient to have that the dishwasher seems to be lacking is a light that can notify the user when the washing is done or currently ongoing, as mentioned in the reviews.
Overall, the LG Electronics Front Control Dishwasher with Stainless Steel Tub is an efficient, quiet, spacious and good quality dishwasher. It is a great combination of good looks and great technology.
