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.

bbob27 12/1/2022

Have been using this for a little over a month now. I am very impressed with how well it cleans dishes and the inside of the unit also has been keeping clean without needing maintenance. Buttons on the front are a little easy to bump and turn the unit on/off. So if doing again I may opt for top buttons.

Excellent Features

MrNick 11/28/2022

This is the first dishwasher i have ever had that had multiple wash options. If they are relatively clean a fast hour wash but if they are REAL dirty the mega 3 hour wash it is. I was a little worried when i saw it didnt have a heating element for drying but those concerns were quickly squashed after the first cycle. And the fact you can fold down supports on the rack comes in real handy for larger items. Now all my appliances are going to be LG.

Possibly the worst dishwasher on the market

Kd23 11/18/2022

I bought this washer two weeks ago. The moment the installer ran it for the first time all I could hear was a high pitched electrical frequency. It hurt my ears and gave me a horrible headache. I was told it would go away. It hasnt. I can only run this at night to avoid the noise. Even worse than this frequency is the amount of water the dishwasher leaves behind. I have to dry my dishes on a drying rack after a cycle completes. I can dump an insane amount of water off the dry dishes. Not just a sprinkle here or there but an entire 3 tablespoons. Very frustrating. Dishes arent even coming clean. Spoke with support and they cant get anyone here until my return window has conveniently expired. To me not worth trying to fix and risking the problems continuing over the return time. Terrible dishwasher.

Broke within a year of purchase

icantbelievethis 11/15/2022

I bought this dishwasher last October. I absolutely loved it The third top rack is a plus. A year to the day the dishwasher started making a weird noise and smelled like an electric fire. I have been waiting for 4 weeks for the warranty parts. Hopefully soon I will have a working dishwasher. The holidays are coming fast.

Super easy set up

Old DIY guy 11/15/2022

Our recent purchase of this unit was initiated by a undetected door seal leak in the old unit that caused a large spread of black mold underneath our laminate flooring. The huge remediation project led me to search for a high quality sturdy dishwasher. That search culminated in our new LG dishwasher. Sitting side by side while I prepped the area for installation tile instead of laminate I could see the build quality was superior and the door seal mounting and materials much more robust. The installation instructions were thorough detailed and complete. The LG water connection much easier to thread on and gave me confidence it is never going to leak while the previous unit was more like a garden hose connection that I was not confident about and could easily cross thread. Its been about a month since I installed it and no leakage or complaints. The wife likes all the new shelving configurations and how quite it is. It matches our LG refrigerator now in its 3rd quarter of operation and we are thrilled with that also. Warranty Registration of the dishwasher was intuitive and fairly painless taking all of 5 minutes online. As a senior citizen this dishwasher is a purchase I expect to last way past the time when I can no longer get down on the floor and do these type of projects. My wife is in charge of operation and pushing all the right buttons and she reports how that is easy to learn to get superior results. We are delighted.

Satisfacvtion 11/10/2022

Had this dishwasher about a month. Looks outstanding This is so quiet compared to our last one that when it is activated I have to put my ear to it go believe it is working The three tiered design is very useful. All sizes of pans can be washed. Plenty of room on each level and the dishes come out really clean.

Dishwasher

Jeannie Dzielak 10/31/2022

I bought this in August at Lowes. Ok had to wait 4 1/2 weeks for delivery. Try said that they were backed up for deliveries. The First thing we noticed was a bad smell when we opened it up. Weve used it about twice a week for 6 weeks it still smells like theres a dead mouse in the bottom or somewhere. We couldnt have someone come right now to check it out because hurricane Ian decided to. damage our Florida home so we had to go there to get the damage taken care of. I will have to have some one come when we get back So much fun The other problem is that the dishes are never dry after the cycle takes 2 1/2 hours to run a load. My old one ran in 1 hr and was totally dry. So far not happy.

My wife and I went shopping for a new dishwasher after our 8 year old previous washer went to appliance store heaven. We are happy owners of both an LG washer and dryer and are thrilled with them. We found this LG dishwasher in our price range and took it home the same day. It is quiet handsome and efficient. My philosophy is simple: After the Best theres only the Rest. We bought LG because we know its the former

OldGuy 47 10/30/2022

We have had for six weeks. On the upside it is very quiet and dishes come out clean. Even with the control set to lo it seems to use a lot of rinse aid. The top shallow 3rd rack is too short to accommodate long BBQ utensils. Dishes in the top two racks do not get dry and there is always water on the back of the door. We have tried the settings in the manual for the most dry results and it has not helped.

Spent much time exploring dishwashers there is a lot. I finally settled on the LG LDFN4542S and we are pleased. This model checked all our boxes for the items we wanted in a dishwasher. Its very quiet easy to load and after 15 loads every load has come out sparkling clean. I would highly recommend this model. The price was great as well..

Poor product quality Issues with in a year

Asfand 10/24/2022

Bought it last year from best buy along with a LG refrigerator. Dishwasher started having cleaning issues after a few months and then started making very loud noise during wash cycles advertised as low noise. Smart diagnostic doesnt show any issues. I called customer service and it looks like nothing is covered in warranty except motor but that too you have to pay for labor and parts out of pocket. At this point you might as well buy a different dishwasher from a quality manufacturer.
