LG Electronics Australia today announced the arrival of its new, innovative dishwasher with Slim Direct Drive Motor – model number LD-1420T1. The Direct Drive Motor also comes with a 10 year warranty (2 years parts & labour + 8 years on motor part), affording customers confidence in the quality of their LG dishwasher.

Offering the latest in smart technology from LG, the Slim Direct Drive Motor allows room for larger plates, crockery and serving dishes to fit in one load. With design practicality and load efficiency in mind, LG’s Direct Drive Motor is placed vertically rather than horizontally to reduce the size of the motor.

LG’s Direct Drive Motor is unique in that it utilises fewer moving parts to reduce machine wear-and-tear and noise. At the same time it increases stability and durability.

This innovative dishwasher also comes with Flexible Basket System, where adjustable racks allow for more height so plates and dishes of most shapes and sizes will fit with ease. Long stemmed glasses are easily accommodated and the knife rack ensures large knives can be safely tucked away.

In addition, the new LG Slim Direct Drive Dishwasher comes with a UV lamp which is activated during and after the wash cycle and during the dry cycle to reduce bacteria. The extra hot rinse cycle enables the water temperature to rise at up to 80 degrees for a more hygienic wash.

LG’s new dishwasher also delivers superior functionality, by providing a half load option that ensures even a small load of dirty dishes can be hidden away and washed in a shorter amount of time.
