Why Buy LG

Since 1958, LG have built a hard-earned name for making their customers lives better through constant product innovation. Their durable, do-it-all dishwashers are no exception and are among the most popular dishwashers in Australia.

“Designed to make clean-ups feel effortless, LG’s advanced dishwashers come with clever tricks like adjustable racks to give you the flexibility to accommodate many sizes of dishes and pans in one load, superior stain removal technology for even the most stubborn spots, and Wi-Fi connectivity to make every cycle work best for you,” says Tania.   

What’s more, the latest LG dishwashers, such as the LG QuadWash Dishwasher in Stainless Steel, sport a sleek and understated exterior design that’s sure to enhance the look of any modern kitchen.

#1 Turn Up The Heat On Germs, Bacteria And Grime

Tired of unloading streaky glasses and plates with traces of last night’s lasagne? Set your sights on an LG dishwasher with TrueSteam™ technology and unleash the power of steam to reduce those water spots by up to 60% and penetrate food residue for sparkling glassware and squeaky clean dishes. With a final rinse temperature greater than 80°C, you’ll also be blitzing 99.99%¹ of harmful bacteria for more hygienic kitchen operations.

#2 Attack Dirty Dishes From Every Angle

You’re guaranteed a thorough clean every time with an LG dishwasher. Why? Because each dishwasher in the range features a nimble QuadWash® arm that spins both clockwise and anti-clockwise; while two oscillating spray nozzles shoot water jets into every nook and cranny. No more tedious dishwasher re-runs for those hard to clean cups or crusty plates!

What They’re Saying:

"We've had this dishwasher for about 10 months now and we really love it. Very well designed interior, runs quietly and cleans everything really well. My favourite feature is the automatic door opening at the end of the cycle which lets the stream out - meaning all plates and cutlery get properly dried!" - Terrence

"Works well, quiet with easy selection of settings on the panel which is hidden on the inside top of the door. Holds lots and adjustability of racking is good." - Pam

"Cutlery shelf is so much better than my previous cutlery basket. The middle shelf is height adjustable and the foldable racks are both extremely useful for larger or unusual items. The different wash cycles available are a great inclusion." - Marion


#3 Smarter Service

Want to do the dishes on your terms? Switch to a cutting-edge LG dishwasher and take total control by hooking up to the LG ThinQ® app on your smartphone or connected smart home hub. You can download new customised wash cycles such as 'Pots & Pans' or 'Night Care' (great for curbing condensation when you want to clean dishes overnight), get alerts when your dishes are done, or trouble-shoot your appliance.

#4 Streamlined Wash-Ups

Forget “one cycle fits all” thinking! With LG’s handy Dual Zone Wash tech you can gently clean your delicate glassware in the upper basket while giving your dirty pots and pans the more intense treatment on the lower rack. A flexible upper rack that can be adjusted to three different heights also means easier loading for even your most awkward or bulky items.

#5 Convenient Cycles

Don’t want your half-full dishwasher getting a little (well) ripe while you wait for a full load? No problem! New LG dishwashers have a Half Load Wash option that adjusts water and program times for smaller loads, saving you on water consumption and energy bills. Need the dishes done pronto? Select the Turbo cycle to wash lightly soiled dishes in less than an hour.
