A new dishwasher can complete any kitchen, offering ease and efficiency in your post culinary artistry clean-up. With adjustable racks, EnergyStar efficiency, and a variety of settings to care for even your most precious pots and pans, LG dishwashers make doing the dishes simple and quick. No more scrubbing by hand. No more laying out extra towels to dry flatware after a party. And no more post-dinner moments stuck at the sink.
When it comes time to bring a dishwasher into your household, there are several important considerations to make. You have to think of where the dishwasher will be installed, what it will look like, and how you'll use it. Luckily, LG dishwashers come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes, featuring new and exciting upgrades and features in each model.
Why LG Dishwashers?
LG has a long history of quality home appliances, beginning in 1956 with the very first domestic refrigerator. Since then, they've demonstrated that same dedication and excellence in every appliance they offer, whether it's a home entertainment system, a new laundry room set, or a refrigerator.
The best LG dishwasher will depend on your needs and preferences for your household. The LG LDF5545ST, for example, offers a front-access control panel, QuadWash technology, and EasyRack plus, making it possible to adjust for every dish and cookware set in your home. CNET rated LG dishwashers on their Best Dishwasher of 2019 list, and when compared with big-name competitors like Samsung, LG dishwashers are reviewed and rated just as highly.
Sam's Club is pleased to offer several different models at special rates for members, whether you're looking for a stand-alone unit to install in your kitchen, or you're interested in purchasing a matching kitchen appliance suite.
What Different Types of LG Dishwashers Are There?
There are several varieties of LG dishwasher, depending on features and finishes, but they all essentially break down into two main categories:
Front control dishwasher: A front control dishwasher has all of the buttons, settings, and controls on a digital or push-button panel on the front of the washer door. These units sit flush beneath your cabinetry in your kitchen.
Top control dishwasher: In a top control dishwasher, the buttons and settings are set into the top inside portion of the dishwasher door, so that when you open it, the controls face up at you. From here, you can choose the wash cycles and whether or not to set Truesteam.

What Features Do LG Dishwashers Have?
LG aims to bring Sam's Club members the cutting edge in dishwasher technology, and so each unit is available with a variety of features. These include:
QuadWash: Four rotating spray arms clean your dishes from every angle.
TrueSteam: An on-door design that provides maximum steam coverage, leaving dishes sparkling clean and with fewer water spots than ever before.
3rd Rack: Usually a slim, flat rack at the top of the dishwasher with rubber slats that holds odd-shaped kitchen utensils and your silverware. It can help get your silverware cleaner - like between fork tines - because each piece doesn't sit on top of each other like in a basket.
Height Adjustable 3rd Rack: An adjustable third rack in LG models that frequently comes with baskets. They can be removed, flipped or racked differently within the space, creating variations to allow for even more use of the extra rack.
SmartThinQ/Wi-Fi: LG SmartThinQ technology allows you to connect your dishwasher via Wi-Fi to a dashboard app on your phone, allowing you to control various cycles or simply know when your dishes are done.
LED Tub Light: A tub light is like a refrigerator light for a dishwasher. Once you open the door, small LED lights will illuminate the dishwasher tub, allowing you to see everything inside clearly.
What to Consider When Buying an LG Dishwasher:
When buying an LG dishwasher, you'll want to consider how and where you'll use it in your home. You should consider where your dishwasher will be installed, and what kind of finish you want. For example, if you decide on a stainless steel finish, you may want to invest in one that is fingerprint resistant.
You'll also want to think about a few smaller details that often fall by the wayside when purchasing dishwashers, such as the loudness of each model and what kind of handle you prefer for your space. Different models come with varying noise levels, and the wrong dishwasher handle in a tight space can make your new appliance more of a nuisance than a convenience.
First, noise levels for dishwashers come in a few brackets, all designed for quiet operation:
40 dB or lower: The quietest noise level for a dishwasher and considered low decibel. This is perhaps the most desirable if you love a silent kitchen, which is comparable to the white noise found in a library.
41-44 dB: This is the mid-range noise level for a dishwasher today. It's still not as loud as some older models many people grew up with, which hovered around 60 dB. This is comparable to bird calls outside.
45-48 dB: The loudest most modern dishwashers get, which is comparable to someone typing on a keyboard but still isn't loud enough to wake someone up from sleeping.
Then, you'll need to consider which type of handle you want for your dishwasher -- pocket handle or towel-bar handle. A pocket handle sits within the plastic of the door and is recessed, allowing you to slip your hand into the groove to open the door. A towel-bar handle is self-explanatory, in that it's a handle you can hang a small dish towel from.
