LG Electronics pursues its 21st century vision of becoming a true global digital leader who can make its customers worldwide happy through its innovative digital products and services. LG Electronics set its mid- and long-term vision anew to rank among the top 3 electronics, information, and telecommunication firms in the world by 2010.

Semi-Integrated Electronic Panel with Digital Status Display
Provides a beautiful exterior appearance while keeping you informed of the cycle status. Electronic controls ensure precise cleaning for safe dish care.

LoDecibel Quiet System
Enables you to talk on the phone or listen to the TV or the radio in your kitchen while the dishwasher is running. A combination of sound reducing material and the Slim Direct Motor ensures low noise.

SenseClean System
Measures turbidity in the water with an LED light during the first rinse. Then water and time are adjusted during the second cycle based on the need for more or less cleaning. This provides precise cleaning and water and energy efficiency.

Multi-Level Water Direction
Sprays water and detergent in five directions for even and thorough cleaning.

Hybrid Condensing Drying System
Uses a fan and condensation drying. The benefit is faster drying, reduced spotting and better energy efficiency.

Slim Direct Motor
An innovative system that enables a clean transfer of energy that is highly reliable, durable, efficient and quiet. The compact size allows for more usable space in the tub.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 206 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by I purchased this model and would not recommend it as it does not clean the dishes very well unless you wipe them first nor does it dry the dishes very well. 1/29/09
Rated 2 out of 5 by let down I have had my LG dishwasher for almost a month and feel completely let down with the performance. Dishes must be completely and thoroughtly rinsed before washing or will not come out clean. Drying seems to be a problem only on plastic pieces. No large space for pots/pans takes space alloted for dishes. 7/9/09
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed We recently purchased an LG dishwasher LDS 4831 and am very disappointed with it. When it has finished washing the dishes when we take them out many of them have to be washed by hand. Before putting the dishes into the dishwasher any food etc is scrapped off and the dish rinsed. We have owned several dishwashers over the years and never had this problem before this dishwasher is only two weeks old. 7/12/09
Rated 2 out of 5 No drying While the unit does a good job of washing our dishes and is relatively easy to use, our problem is that we need to hand dry everything that is washed. The drying function is terrible. 7/15/09
