I am a creature of habit, with a slight touch of OCD. This makes me remarkably predictable but also sometimes hard to be around when things get out of place. After a kitchen renovation over a year ago, I’ve finally been able to take a deep breath and relax now that there’s a place for everything, and everything is in its place. Then, LG contacted me with the opportunity to review a new QuadWash Steam Dishwasher – was I interested?
You see, the thing is, my kitchen is all matchy-matchy with another appliance brand. And I liked that achievement even if it meant that there were newer, and more efficient products on the market. If I replaced one, would I then have to replace them all? So, I settled for mediocre appliances that weren’t performing as they should, but they matched!
I decided to be crazy (!!!) and switch out my brand-matching dishwasher for a new LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher. Well – I can tell you with utmost certainty that after experiencing the LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher, my old one will be sold to a friend of mine, because there’s no way I’m going back. (It also means I’ve got my eye on an LG Fridge now, but that’s a topic for another time…)
Here’s why the LQ QuadWash Steam (officially called the LDT7808ST Top Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Height Adjustable 3rd Rack and Tub Lights) won our family of 5 over:
1. LG QuadWash – Clean From Every Angle
With four rotating arms instead of the standard two arms on other dishwashers, the LG QuadWash Steam achieves maximum cleaning coverage throughout the entire cycle. The high-pressure jets power-clean dishes from multiple angles to reach every nook and cranny so you’re not left with dishes with gunk in the corners or glasses that have residue on the bottom. The LG QuadWash Steam has you covered – from every angle! Plus, it’s super-quiet! We didn’t realize how loud our previous dishwasher was until we experienced the silence of the LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher (44dB) – many times I’ve asked if it’s even on!
2. The Tub Light
This was what impressed me the moment the dishwasher was installed, and we opened the door. I didn’t realize how dark our dishwasher was until it was illuminated with a gorgeous tub light. And yes, I showed it off on in my Instagram stories the day we got it. Aside from being esthetically pleasing, the light actually makes loading and unloading the dishwasher easier – who knew the cupboard where your dishwasher is housed is such a dark corner?
3. The Third Rack
This might be my favorite feature and something I’ve sent photos of to my friends and family (when you’re in your forties this is what you do!) No more cutlery basket taking up space in the bottom rack, no more questioning of how clean your teenager’s hands are when they remove the spoons and forks from the basket (just me?) While this dishwasher comes with the basket should you want to use it, you won’t. The third rack has plenty of space for all your cutlery, big and small, and then the layout makes it super easy to remove them when clean by the handles.
4. EasyRack™ Plus System
With the EasyRack™ Plus System, we have a height-adjustable third rack (being so slim with cutlery only, you can move it right to the top if you need extra space below for glasses or even bowls) along with foldable tines on the first and second rack making it possible to fit every piece of cookware and dishware in. I love this feature, flip, fold, build, every wash is going to be different when you can move around the tines so easily.
5. The Technology
With the LG SmartThinQ™ smartphone app you can download new wash cycles such as pots & pans or casseroles and even download your own personalized cleaning settings. I love technology – who knew we’d live in an age where your appliances are available at your fingertips when you’re away from home?
Beyond these features, there’s also much to adore about the Dual Wash Zone (pots and pans on the bottom need more pressure than your wine glasses at the top right?) and how environmentally friendly this appliance is (it’s among the most energy-efficient dishwashers in its class!)
When looking for a new dishwasher this holiday season, or into the new year, take a longer look at the LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher. This particular model (Top Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Height Adjustable 3rd Rack and Tub Lights – LDT7808ST) is priced at LG.com for $1699.99 CDN and available to purchase at Best Buy ($999.99), and Home Depot ($998).

I need a new dishwasher this looks great!
oh my gosh! i need that dishwasher! love how it really maximizes the space
The third rack is a wonderful feature.
LG makes beautiful appliances ❤️
This sounds like a great dishwasher and I love the utensil shelf
The LG QuadWash Steam sounds like a very impressive dishwasher. I like the fact that it is so quiet and I bet that top rack really adds a lot of extra space.
I really like how the cutlery goes flat on the top. I wish I had that feature.
This sounds fantastic. We bought our appliances 9 year ago (actually, almost 10 which is craziness!) and while I’m thankful that they are still working great, I am amazed at all of the new technology that has come out in the meantime.
It looks wonderful. I love that it’s quiet!
What a great review–I need a new dishwasher. I love the way this one organizes forks and knives!
OMG! Love where the cutlery goes!
I love the great appliances that LG makes. You are a lucky lady. Great gift to get.
We cannot even talk around our dishwasher that was sold to as as ‘very quiet’, so you commenting that this is super-quiet perked my ears.
I like the top 3rd rack and the fact that it is quiet when it is functioning.
I like the look of the washer and that is saves space.
im needing a new dishwasher Ill have to look in to this one
I love that dishwasher. I love that cutlery rack. I find mine takes up so my space in my dishwasher.
I love my Bosch, but the 4 washing arms and the placement of the cutlery tray is pretty tempting.
I love the third rack.
I was like all WAY impressed by the 3rd rack for cutlery. But then I saw point #5 about the app and I am still like WTAF?! Sorry for my language but seriously. I LOVE that feature!
My family is currently looking for a dishwasher to complete our kitchen renovations. This review was really useful!
JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE the cutlery tray at the top!!!
I’m sold! There is so much to love about the LG Quadwash dishwasher. I would love to replace my old, noisy, ineffective dishwasher with this one.
Wow it looks like it hold a ton of stuff! Love that it is super quiet!
I love the cutlery rack at the top, such a smart idea!
Love the cutlery rack on the top instead of taking up room at the bottom!
Ok, this is the Rolls Royce of dishwasher. That cutlery rack is awesome and the space wow. I was wondering if it was quiet and you answered that.
Talk about technology. Would love one.
Love the third rack!
I love their hummus! Thanks for this Tenille
I have never seen at top tray like that! So great for the cooking utensils. My dishwasher is awful. The dishes are always soaking wet at the end of the cycle. I would love this upgrade! 🙂
That cutlery rack is impressive. So much better spaced out than dumping them all in a basket.
I love that 3rd drawer for cutlery wish mine had that
This would make my life so much easier!!!
I love how well things are organized in this dishwasher!
I LOVE how organized the dishwasher is!
You ca turn it on with your phone!. It was only time…
I like that the dishes get cleaned from every angle.
that is one fantastic dishwasher! We are looking to replace ours, right now it is broken down and hiding my regular dishes while the holiday stuff is being used! great review!
This is a good looking dishwasher!
This looks like a great dishwasher!
ooooh, i would love this to replace our old dishwasher!
This dishwasher sounds terrific, really love the 3rd rack feature.
A moms dream!!!
I would love the utensil rack at the top.
I like the third rack, looks great for cutlery and tools. The adjustable and foldable tines sound like a good idea to put any shape dish or pots in.
I like that top rack for cutlery. I wish my dishwasher had it. The cutlery baskets take up so much space.
I like that 3rd rack. Our household could use this!!
This looks amazing!!! The way the cutlery sits is interesting too
We fall into the matchy matchy category as well. But the light! This is definitely well designed and practical love it!
I like the way the cutlery can line up so much better than putting in the plastic container – would like to know how long the regular cycle is.
Wow that third rack would be so useful! Sounds like an amazing machine.
Sounds like a great dishwasher!
Wow! This is an awesome looking dishwasher. I wish I had one like this. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Oh I will keep this in mind when I do my kitchen renovation next year!
I like that it’s among the most energy-efficient dishwashers in its class. The top rack for cutlery looks good too – it’s great that items can be removed by grabbing their handles instead og the eating surfaces.
The top rack sold me. I do not have a dishwasher but when I am at my daughter’s home and load her dishwasher there are always things that are awkward and take up so much room. This rack would take care of those things.
What a beauty! I would love a dishwasher like this!
Now THATS a dishwasher! I went too cheap with the one I have now. Its gotten rusty, it is too small and the noises it makes startles my poor cats…
