Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Have had this dishwasher 3 years. The door latch error keeps popping up so the dishwasher will not start. After talking to a LG repair person this is a common issue with the LG product. Also the top rack has rust from where some of the plastic covering feel off. It is not covered by any warranty because its considered cosmetic

The main and second racks of the dishwasher clean well but the third rack isnt good for anything but silverware. Which is fairly useless. One because a utensil tray is also included. Two because the third rack is very inconvenient to use due to needing to place each utensil into individual slots. Also even though I select the Extra Dry setting the dishes are often still wet.

Excited about my new dishwasher

ssquare 1/1/2022

Purchased in October 2021 from The Home Depot they didnt have this model on the floor so I had to purchase by reading the features and also with a lot of help from the THD associate. Love that it doesnt show fingerprints wasnt sure about this when I bought it because I purchased the dishwasher in black. I love the third rack I use it every time I run the washer. I like the utensil basket and I like that I can remove it to unload the utensils. Very pleased with my purchase as my last dishwasher would leave food on the dishes and I ended up having to re wash half the dishes again in the sink. I like to unload the washer now knowing that this unit gets my dishes clean every time. Its also nice that you can adjust the prongs to allow for a large dish. The front piece is a little touchy if we brush up against it the dishwasher wakes up but I can overlook that for knowing that when I run it that my dishes will come out clean very happy about that. Lots of wash features.

A good dishwasher but LG service is THE WORST

stevec73 12/13/2021

The unit I bought leaked right off the bat. It was difficult to diagnose what the leak was from and it seemed to go away after some hoses were adjusted. Intermittently there would still be water on the floor which I thought was from kitchen spills. After one large spill I was finally able to figure out that there was a gap in the seam of the steel tub and the intermittent leak was due to the fact that the spill tray has multiple cells some without drain holes so the water only pours out when certain cells overflow. I had only owned the unit for ~10 weeks. LG service was all-around HIDEOUS and ridiculously incompetent. After hours spent on frustrating calls including a service techs visit to my house that never got properly logged back to LG I finally appealed to the retailer I bought it from to exchange it for the same model but I couldnt get the matching color. The sad part is that this is a great machine but the support backing it up is quite possibly the worst on the face of the Earth.

FIRST LG DISHWASHER

CTTD 11/4/2021

cleans very well and quietly and love the small item top rack though it was not a feature I had considered. Does have a musty smell when opening door that I have never noticed in prior dishwasher brands--perhaps from no heating element???

So quiet

LMasa 9/12/2021

I bought this as a replacement dishwasher. Lots of easy to learn settings. Holds a TON of dishes and the third rack adds space for cutlery or flat items. Super quiet excellent cleaning. Drying not so great even with using hot water and extra dry settings the dishes and especially the silverware must be hand dried. The third rack items do not dry at all. The item also arrived with a significant dent on the inside door panel. LG customer support very helpful waiting for repair. Overall I like it but my old one was better.

Quiet while running

Biney 9/5/2021

We bought the LG dishwasher one month ago and it is easy to operate and load and quiet while running. The lowest rack does not hold the middle row of plates as the manual pictures and the middle rack does not hold plates as pictured. That being said I am happy with the way it washes and dries. There are plenty of settings for all my needs. The only drawback is the machine does not hold as many plates as advertised.

Large capacity for place setting

gizzyca 8/29/2021

I bought this dishwasher over a month ago. Finally got it installed last saturday. I love the spaciness. for dishes and larger items. My only fault is the 3rd rack. my previous dishwasher the 3rd rack held small custard sups and my cutting board. This one doesnt. I brought the cups to the appliance store so I could check features out. I am wondering if salesman gave me the wrong number number to order? For people that dont need that feature and just use it for larger utensils. the dishwasher is great. Washes well

I have had my dish washer about 1 month and I love it. It is so quite when running. The new feature of drying your dishes is wonderful. The third rack is a plus it works great for my silverware. Over all this is a very good dish washer.

cj29 8/24/2021

I had to replace my old dishwasher and I purchased my new LG Dishwasher about one month ago and I am so happy that I made the right choice. I have had other brands of dishwashers over the past years but none can compare to the LG. This dishwasher cleans the dishes better than any other I have owned and I really like that it has 3 racks and it so quiet that you can hardly hear it. I anticipate having to purchase other kitchen appliances in the very near future and so far I like all of the LG the best. I also have an LG TV which I purchased at the beginning of this year which I really like as well.

The racks just dont hold dishes or glasses properly. Racks are of poor design. The controls are extremely hard to see you literally have to get within 6 to see them and be able to set to wash items.

We love it But...

RVACat 7/20/2021

I did much research before placing my order. I needed a shorter than standard to fit under my countertop since installing a tile floor. I also wanted QUIET. This unit is beautifully quiet I can run it while we go to bed. My only complaint is the digital keypad is hard to read until you hit the power button. I need a flashlight to see what Im doing to get started. I wish there was a way to turn on the digital lights with a switch. Otherwise its been GREAT and the sleek design is attractive.

I doubt that this machine will hold 15 sets of dinner ware as advertised. The racks are not user friendly there is too much space between bottom supports to hold dishes in place during washing. Upright bars are too close together. This machine is not as quite as rated.
