LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher is my New Favourite Appliance
This post has been sponsored by LG.
The new LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher has a lot going for it. When the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher arrived I was excited to see the new features, bells and whistles incorporated into the design and function of this heavy duty kitchen appliance.
I am a technology loving girl at heart. So, when technology improves something I already use every day, and adds to the performance of an appliance, that gets my heart racing a bit faster and I have to see it in action. This month I have been putting the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher through its paces to see what it can do. Happy to report it’s easy to use with a few truly exceptional features and my dishes have never looked cleaner.
Let’s face it, how an appliance looks matters. I like the design of my kitchen and want any new large or small appliances to look as if they belong. This new LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher is sleek, modern and minimalistic and it fits in well with the look and feel of our kitchen. It matches the LG fridge we bought three years ago, so that’s ideal and it makes me happy.

One of My Favourite Things
When we moved into this home 4 1/2 years ago we inherited an old dishwasher which eventually died. As I was researching products available I learned a lot about what’s out there and what I like or want. I loved the idea of a third rack for silverware. The third rack on the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher is adjustable and it’s one of my favourite things about this model.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the third rack on my LG QuadWash Steam because it affords a lot of room and flexibility with our dishes. It offers an adjustable, half and half design which allows me to lower half of it to accommodate larger utensils like spatulas, scoops, big spoons, big knives, etc. Also, the grooves on the trays are angled perfectly to cradle your silverware. Even our water bottle lids fit just a little bit better in it! It’s the most functional third rack I’ve ever had.
EasyRack Plus Is Another Feature I Love!
We have huge Fiesta plates and bowls and we really like them. I mean they are gorgeous and great quality. But they never fit quite right in our old dishwasher. EasyRack Plus in the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher means we don’t have that issue anymore. You can pretty much set the inside of the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher up to be any configuration you need. It has folding tines for maximum flexibility on the top cup rack and the bottom plate and bowl rack too. Plus there’s on-the-fly rack height adjustment which is extremely useful.
LG QuadWash Steam Delivers Clean Dishes
Even though our last dishwasher wasn’t all that old, I was keen to see what LG QuadWash Steam could do. Basically it gets my dishes and glasses cleaner than ever before. It’s impressive actually. They sparkle. No water spots are left at all. How does it do that? Steam is released at a very high temperature to effectively sanitize dishes.
There are a few energy efficiency features I look for in new appliances. There’s an energy saver setting on the LG QuadWash Steam that I have used a few times already. Happy to note that the energy saver setting doesn’t compromise the cleanliness of the dishes.
In Ontario, energy use and electricity is rated according to time of day. So costs are cheaper at night. With the delay start function and the app that allows me to control the dishwasher from my phone, I can ensure that it only runs in the late off hours at cheaper times of the night.
The Auto cycle is a smart feature I am impressed with too. I started using normal cycle because it seemed super simple and it was, but then I read about auto, which automatically senses the load size, soil level and optimizes for the best cleaning. That is a great feature. And night dry is unique too. Set the dishwasher for night dry and the fan runs periodically to help vent steam from the tub.
The tub light is just the kind of technological advance and function I have come to expect from LG appliances. It’s a small thing, but it means you can clearly see to load or unload the dishwasher late at night.
LG QuadWash Steam Specs
If you’re like me, you enjoy seeing the specs of a device, machine, or appliance in addition to hearing about it. So with that in mind, here are a few more highlights of this amazing dishwasher.
- Reduces pre-washing
- Addition of steam helps hit all nooks and crannies
- Reduces water spots by 60%
- Multi-Motion spray arms spin and rotate to hit every angle of every dish
- Folding tines for maximum flexibility
- On-the-fly rack height adjustment
- Control your dishwasher from your phone. That is the kind of fantastic feature I welcome in my home and frankly wish my other kitchen appliances had similar smart technology.
So Does It Pass This final test?
Some of you know my husband, Jim. He’s the real force behind much of the cleaning here, so I was curious to see if the LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher would win him over. The truth? I was won over with the amazing third rack and the other bells and whistles like the folding tines. The technology, the tub light and even the delightful music the dishwasher plays when a cycle is finished, all are winning details.
My husband can be extremely particular with dishwashers, washers and dryers. But just a few days ago, out of the blue he said: “I’m not sure how it does it, but this dishwasher gets the dishes cleaner than any other we’ve had.”
So there you have it. Our new LG Quadwash Steam dishwasher even meets the fussy spouse test.
LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher is Truly Awesome
I have had several dishwashers over the years, and I can say with no hesitation that this LG QuadWash Steam is the best one we’ve had. I love the connectivity, flexibility, and styling of this machine so much. Plus the features on the LG QuadWash Steam are outstanding.
That is one sweet dishwasher! We’re still using one we got about 10 years ago, and I think this would make an awesome replacement!
This sounds like a really nice dishwasher. Going to come in handy with all extra cooking and baking going on
LG appliances all get such high reviews and now I see why. When it’s time to replace my dishwasher, this is the one I want. I need that third rack and all the other bells and whistles. Love it!
We have the third rack on ours too and I love it, especially for water bottle lids and lids to lunch containers
Thanks for sharing your review. I have to look into getting this for my home. It really sounds like an amazing dishwasher.
Wow dishwashers have a come a long way since I had a working one. Folding tines and a third rack, great ideas! It’s definitely time to get a new dishwasher here. Haven’t had a working one in years.
Any appliance which saves me money and energy is great! Love the idea there is a light inside so you can see. We are in the market for a new dishwasher. I will check out steam dishwashers.
This makes our dishwasher look so basic! I like all the features.
This does look like a fabulous dishwasher. We actually need a new one. Our old one is making funny noises that make me nervous.
Great post! I love the energy efficiency points that you made! Passing this along to my husband!
Now that looks like a great dishwasher. I’ll keep this model in mind if my current one needs replacing anytime soon!
Jenn- Definitely, you should keep it in mind. Love this dishwasher.
Oh I need a new dishwasher. Mine is new but I don’t like it a bit! I am going to have to checkout this one! The quadwash steam model looks great!
What a wonderful new appliance. That third rack is a game-changer. I like the like of the “auto” setting too, you don’t even have to think about what settings and everything gets done as it should. Perfect!
YES!! It is one of my favourite things bout the LG Quadwash. Also nuts over the light and the music it plays when the load is finished. Plus it cleans so well it is really surprising.
LG makes great appliances. We have an LG washer and dryer and they work so well for us.
Pam – that’s what I need next!! My washer and dryer are SO old. They are on their last legs. I am smitten with the new dishwasher and all it does. Can’t wait to see the other appliances they have.
My dishwasher looks like a dinosaur compared to that one! It definitely cleans great.
You had me at energy efficient LG! I don’t have a dishwasher but your thorough review of this quadwash has me thinking that I need to invest in one soon.
A good dishwasher is so essential for any family! This LG QuadWash Steam dishwasher seems to be modern with a lot of useful functions!
We have an LG dishwasher too and I love it. I wish I have this one with a third rack though.

This dishwasher is really awesome!! Would love to check it out.
What an awesome dishwasher! I can see why it’s your favorite appliance! Can’t beat energy efficient!
When we moved into our home I replaced the motor in the dishwasher. I just had to replace the keypad. I know it’s on its way out soon. But I want even mind because the LG QuadWash Steam sounds perfect!
This is a really nice dishwasher and you had me sold at third rack. We always run out of space so this product sounds like it might be spacious. Thanks for sharing!
Your dishwasher sounds amazing! We have an old one that I have wanted to replace for years. I would absolutely love this one. My dishes don’t get very clean and I am always frustrated. I’m jealous of yours!
I don’t care too much about what appliances look like, but quality, features, and overall value are very important to me. I absolutely love this EasyRack idea.
Denise: I lOVE it too. There are a lot of things to love about this dishwasher in fact.
I love LG appliances. I am happy this is an energy saving dish washer.
There is nothing like a great dishwasher in the kitchen!!! We’ve been without before and it makes such a difference. This one is beautiful too!
Thanks I think so too. When ours broke down that first time after we moved in here we were really scrambling. It’s one of those appliances you have to replace FAST.
It looks like a great dish washer! So many great features! Love it!
