Very limited lifespan for the expense.
Overall the dishwasher worked fine for about 3 years. Single daily use (2 adults, 1 child).
Slow but expected as I purchased an eco model.
But as soon as it went over the 3 year mark - it basically fell apart and all the PCB's needed replacing due to age. Repair costs are about half the original purchase price.
Speaking with LGE they said 4 years is a reasonable lifespan for a dishwasher and suggested to buy a new one. I just expected it to last a bit longer for the price.
Works well so far
Nice finish and works well so far. Have used it a few times and it cleans the dishes well. i rinse dishes that could be problematic, ie eggs or baked on foods but this is a cursory rinse. Very satisfied.
Purchased in September 2019.

The LD1485T4 DishWasher has been great so far, we owned for few years now
it has worked good every day we use it
it cleans our dish's very well every time, we do use KIRKLAND SIGNATURE DISHWASHING TABLETS From Costco
we do scrape the dishes before putting it into the dishwash
Repair side of things
we did have to get a few repairs done, the repair guy always called us to book it in at a time good for us
it was leaking (Not a full on leak that the house flooded was a leak from the under bottom did have to get fixed few time's last fix was goo...d as the tech couldn't work out why it was leaking how ever found it as he tested it few times, and it was just a fault in the pipe it self from where the solenoid at the tap had a hose failure , how ever the dishwasher did kill the water due to this new solenoid system there use saved our house from flooding.
No problems with it
I have had this dishwasher for over 12 months and have not had a problem,it cleans & dries well and is reasonably quiet. I do rinse the dishes first but it also cleans casserole dishes well. I like the cutlery drawer feature too. All in all I’m happy with it.
Worked well for 18 months then an error code came up .I contacted them and LG gave me the number of an authorised repair agent . Turns out this guy is not that interested because it is a bit further than he usually travels, 52 kms .I think LG need to have a look at who they authorise to repair their faulty products .5 weeks and counting .
Purchased in September 2017 for A$1,150.00.
Rusty cutlery draw.
Noticed rust on cutlery drawer just out of warranty. Rust would have been there prior to end of warranty but was not noticed at that time. LG not covering cost of replacement. They said sharp object has removed plastic coating on steel frame - nuh. Rust is apparent as well under plastic coating. For the price they should have stainless steel frames.

I thought it was perfect.. till the first wash
leaked from the first wash, was loud, cleaned dishes well but didn't dry well. Called LG and after 3 authorised repairers visits was deemed to be irreparable. This is where it has gotten messy. LG customer support have not been helpful and do not know Consumer rights - or are hoping I don't. I have requested a replacement and because they are not making any of the same dishwasher said they would only offer a store credit. I asked for the model that replaces it and they said we have no idea when that will be available so only store credit a...vailable. They must not liaise with the sales department as they have said product code will be out next week and available the week following. Nearly two months with a useless machine paid fully for with no solution. Hoping next week when I ring the customer support they will have caught up on the news.

Extremely happy with our purchase
This is probaby my umpteen dishwasher over the last 40 years and whilst I have not had it installed for very long, I am extremely happy with this unit....I read that many reviews of all the suggested brands but price and layout among other things, steered me towards this dishwasher
With electricity prices so expensive and having a smart meter, delayed time was essential...I set my dishwasher to come on at 5 am on the quick/easy cycle and I cant remember a dishwasher which has actually dried the dishes and cutlery as well as this unit....it ...is so quiet, with my bedroom being very close to the kitchen but I haven't heard it at all ...I love the top cutlery draw as all my utensils are washed really well and whilst I haven't used any longer cycles, so far I have had no need ... early days I know but so far so good
Excellent low water pressure
Extremely quite. My kitchen is open and faces the dinning and living room. After each meal our family of 6 people stack the dishwasher and relax watching tv in the living room, I can’t hear the dish washer. The Machine has not faulted. I am a lazy stacker and rarely clean the plate. The machine will clean every thing completely if you start it immediately after a meal. We generally wait till after dinner to start, by that time the rice bubbles and weetbix which were eaten at breakfast and the bowls are stacked in the dishwasher are truely stuck...to any bowl or utensil, but this machine clean it even if it doesn’t start cleaning every thing till after dinner. I haven’t done the salt thing yet. At this stage I have only used the ALDI dishwashing tablets and those have been great. My wife has done pots and glass cooking dishes in the machine with out any issues. I
Bought this super expensive, but highly energy and water rated dishwasher after our Bosch died. My husband did a lot of research as we really wanted a company who cares for the environment as well as an appliance that works well.
The sales guy at Harvey Norman gave it a good review, even compared to other dishwashers in the same price range.
It supposedly steams off toughened food and grease, if used on the steam settings. - No, we are still having to rinse before stacking dishwasher (one of the main pitfalls if you're trying to be...
