LG Washes The Dishes In Our House

The LG QuadWash Dishwasher with TrueSteam Technology Review
Superior Performance + Gentle Care

With three growing boys in the house I’m sure you can imagine how many dishes are used on the daily. Don’t even get me started on how many cups they go through in one day and heaven forbid I grab the wrong one. Lets keep it real, the only thing I dislike more than laundry is hand washing dishes. Who has the time to wash dishes all day long? Because I swear they eat all. day. long.

What’s important to you when shopping for appliances? Dishwashers have definitely changed over the years. It’s easier than ever to be overwhelmed or confused with all the features and different options. I typically go straight to the big brands with known reputations for quality, like LG. I like to invest in a product that is reliable, that I can count on and know is going to last.

LG QuadWash Steam
Features

Say what you will, but you don’t, in fact, like doing dishes. Lucky for me, and for you, we live in the 21st century where the days of paper plates and piles of dishes in the sink are a thing of the past. Instead, you can get a smart dishwasher like the LG QuadWash Steam. You’re obviously wondering what’s so smart about it right?

Using the SmartThinQ® app you can check the status of your dishwasher. This means if you ask your husband to turn the dishwasher on you can easily check he’s done it before “nagging”. [insert eye roll here] It took me a few minutes to figure out how to connect my machine to the app but once its set up its very easy to use. The first time we ran the dishwasher I got a notification on my phone saying ” Add rinse aid to dishwasher for better drying performance ” and there I was, out smarted by our shiny new dishwasher.

Trust me when I say I had high expectations trying out this new dishwasher. It did not disappoint! There are so many things I quickly fell in love with that I didn’t even know I was missing out on with our last dishwasher.

TrueSteam Technology

To start with The LG QuadWash dishwasher integrates TrueSteam technology, a powerful steam that helps eliminate the need to pre-rinse dishes. TrueSteam technology offers maximum steam coverage to give you 60% less water spots or water stains on things like wine glasses so they come out shiny every time. 

The QuadWash dishwasher with TrueSteam technology has DualControl™. What that means is you can adjust the intensity between the lower and upper racks. This lets you wash more delicate items up top, like your wine glasses, while using a stronger setting on the bottom for your plates or pots and pans. The LG QuadWash dishwasher uses four spray arms instead of two to achieve maximum cleaning throughout the entire cycle.

I didn’t think I would ever refer to loading the dishwasher as fun but with LG’s EasyRack™ Plus it actually is. You can easily adjust the racks to accommodate all your dishes. Gone are the days of fussing with bowls trying to make them fit and not fall onto one another. You can even lay the racking system completely flat for pots. Sounds awesome right? That’s because it is. Bonus points for making my OCD really happy.

The LG QuadWash dishwasher comes with three pull out racks. I absolutely love the option of having the top tray for silverware and having the option of removing the lower basket if extra space is needed for dishes. If that isn’t fancy enough for you, (at this point my mind was already blown), you can also adjust the height on the left side of the top tray to fit small items like espresso cups or sippy cup lids. The middle rack is also height adjustable making every single piece fit in one load.


Cycles & Options

  • Auto – Cycle senses the load size, soil amount and soil toughness and optimizes to achieve the best cleaning
  • Heavy – For heavily soiled and hard to clean dishes
  • Turbo – A shortened, powerful cycle for washing only (You can select Extra Dry option to dry dishes)
  • Normal – For everyday normally soiled dishes
  • Extra Dry – For better drying performance (adds 20 mins drying time)
  • Night Dry – Runs the ventilation fan periodically to help vent the steam from the tub
  • High Temp – Raises the main wash temperature to improve cleaning
  • Dual Zone – Sets the spray intensity to soft for the upper spray arm and strong for the lower spray arm
  • Half Load – Washes intensively by selecting the upper or lower racks


LG confidently backs their products with a 10-year warranty on your dishwasher’s Direct Drive Motor. The Motor and self cleaning filtration system were designed with quiet in mind. The LG QuadWash dishwasher with TrueSteam is among the quietest on the market. The first time we put it to the test hubs and I watched a movie in our open concept kitchen/living room. We didn’t hear it at all.

The most likely time for me to clean up is during nap time so I really appreciate a quiet dishwasher. The other day Cruz napped on the couch with the dishwasher running and wasn’t phased at all. The boys have their moments when they want to help which I also appreciate and think is the cutest ever!


So far, I have nothing but positive things to say about our new dishwasher. Its definitely an upgrade from our previous machine. LG’s QuadWash dishwasher with TrueSteam technology is available in 2 colour options, Black Stainless Steel and Stainless Steel. You can check them out here.
