Product Description

The LG LDS5540ST Semi-Integrated Dishwasher with Flexible EasyRack Plus System, in stainless steel, is an incredibly quiet dishwasher that cleans and sterilizes with extreme efficiency. The technologically advanced Inverter DirectDrive motor and the impressive self-cleaning were designed with not just effectiveness in mind, but also the importance of silence. That's why at its loudest this dishwasher emits only 48dB, making it incredibly quiet compared to most dishwashers. Compounded with the impressive 14 place-setting capacity and numerous impressive pre-programmed cycle settings, this quiet dishwasher is an invaluable addition to any kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cleans great, very quiet. January 24, 2013
Just got this delivered and installed today. It's currently washing it's second load. It did a great job on the first batch of dishes. One thing I noticed is that with the "Hybrid Drying System", the dishes don't come out so hot you can't touch them. They were perfectly dry and just warm to the touch.

I'll say this. So far so good. Allow me to put some context on this review. This dishwasher replaced a Bosch SHY66C05UC. At the time we bought it, it was the most expensive dishwasher that Sears sold. In my experience, dishwashers tend to be an appliance you take for granted. Over the years, I can't recall ever having a dishwasher repaired. The Bosch was great for the first 3 years. Years 4-8 were an entirely different experience. I had at least one major failure per year with it. The electronics on it finally went out right before Christmas this year and rather then spend $350 to replace the failed part, I decided enough was enough. My point? Try to find a review on the above Bosch dishwasher. You can't. Reviews on appliances like this are fine but if you notice, most of them are all based on purchases made in the last few months. If I had reviewed the Bosch in the first 3 years, I probably would've reviewed it very high. In the end, I wouldn't even give it a single star.

Out of the box, this LG dishwasher works as advertised. Will it fulfill the destiny that I have chosen for it, to do its job well for many years with minimal repairs, or will it start to fall apart after a few years. I wish I could come back here to tell you but this review will be long gone by then.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Satisfied December 31, 2012
The LG LDS5540ST is a new dishwasher for LG. After buying the top rated Consumer Reports Dishwasher (the Bosch),
I returned it for the new LG. The Bosch was smaller and had no flexibility with the tines; it was like doing
a jigsaw puzzle every time I loaded it. I was impressed with the LG initially with the all Stainless Steel
inside & outside, simple controls that you can see on the front, and the flexibility of the tines.
I have owned an LG clothes washer and dryer for several years with which we have been very happy. This dishwasher
is so quiet that it is difficult to even hear it working; a big contrast to the 10 year old GE that it replaced.
I discovered, after a service call, that the only cycle where the water is actually heated is the final
rinse; since there is no heating element at the bottom, a fan blows the hot air around after the rinse cycle to dry the dishes.
It works fairly well as long as you use rinse aid; some water accumulates on the top of some items in the top rack,
like wine glasses, etc. I am surprised that it uses only the hot tap water for all the cycles except the
final rinse. The instruction book says it heats the wash cycle to 140 (145 for power scrub); but, the technical instructions
(which can be found behind the panel in the front at the bottom) for service shows the heater only working in the final rinse.
This is supposed to be an energy saving feature, I am told. Apparently, the instructions for the repair people don't translate
into the consumer instruction book. It seems to clean ok, but I am not totally comfortable with the wash water ending up at
room temperature at the end of the cycle. I don't think most people use room temp water to wash their dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very quiet, very big, and very clean November 29, 2012
Length: 1:49 Mins
We are a family of four and use the dishwasher consistently one to two times per day. We did not enjoy using our old dishwasher at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars had to balance the CRAP of By BigRedPencil August 21, 2013
06/29/14 While I see a new review about loading dishes that do not fit I know the problem. We have several different size dishes, and sometimes I have to move things around and adjust the adjustable holders.

The dishes that fit best are the Corning dishes. LG made the the dish holders so adjustable that I can fit anything in there, just have to find the best way.

Anyway it cleans the dishes, is very quiet and I would buy it again if it gives me another 15 years or so. They will change the model, but LG has worked for me.

01/30/14 works great, runs quite, can only hear it when it drains the water, other wise I forget it is running. I really like the count down timer so I know it is running. I don't like to interrupt the cycle, and usually my wife loads it so trying to add anything is a waste of time. That countdown timer is really the only way to know it is running.


It has been running fine. the water gets very very hot, the dishes get very clean and I really like the unit. When the cycle is done the dishes are hot and dry.


Ok to save those who read this some time. Loews over Labor Day had it on sale. Bought it for $595 plus tax. It has been working perfectly. My wife ran it tonight while I was watching TV 20 feet from it. I never knew it was running till I went into the kitchen and saw it was almost finished running.

In reading other posts many have made an issue of the lack of a heat coil. I ran the dishwasher stopping it during the wash cycle and found the water to be hot, then stopped it during the rinse cycle and found the water to be VERY hot. I now know how the dishes dry, the heated rinse cycle leaves the dishes hot enough to dry without the heating coil.
