I purchased a dishwasher this weekend after scouring the forums with no great deals that stood out. I compared models online, and I finally decided to go with this model: LDF5545BD. Besides cleaning and aesthetics, I thought the wifi connected washer would be a cool upgrade. I paid $719 (discounted from $799), and installed it myself. I thoroughly read the manual, and I couldn't find anything about connecting this to wifi as it was demonstrated on the Lowes site. I started comparing features, and I found a couple of major mistakes on the product page that were deceptive/wrong.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/LG-QuadW...1000363093

The product page has a video that shows a woman watching the status of the dishwasher via a smartphone. Also, the page says that this model has an LED interior light. This model doesn't have either of these features. It's almost like they copy/pasted the description from a different model.

I wrote corporate, and received a call from the local manager today. He said that they are "working" on correcting the page, and he would like to make it up to me with roughly 20% credit. He actually didn't offer the 20%, but he asked me what I was expecting, so you might do better than me. I could have asked for a higher discount, but I'm still pretty satisfied with what I received, and I think it was a fair offer. I accepted the credit, but the page still has not changed. I'm very satisfied with the conversation that I had at a local level, but I'm still honestly disappointed with corporate Lowes. If you read through the QA, others struggled and gave up on the wifi connectivity, and I'm surprised that this was not caught sooner. No telling how many people were deceived by the website, or how many other errors are on the page.

So, it's YMMV, but I bet that you could print the page and walk into Lowes and get an instant discount. I decided to share this with the community to hopefully "give back to the consumers" when a company has deceptive advertising. You can probably get this much sweeter by combining local rebates, and Lowes credit card discounts.

The actual product specification page does not list it as wifi enabled. So, your basing all your info on a video? Had you read the specs, you would have known otherwise.

Wow, this is crazy, I was just looking at this dishwasher and almost bought it after seeing that same video, but then noticed in Lowe's "compare" that it doesn't have that feature. Cool that they took it off for you!

Specs are different from product description. The video is one thing, but the description should match what you're buying. The video is deceptive though.

What is the purpose of the video but to show you one great feature that will help them sell the product. No matter how you spin it, it is deceptive.
