I purchased all my kitchen appliances in the Black Stainless. The finish on my dishwasher is now starting to peel just over two years after purchase. It's looks terrible and I am concerned that the other appliances that I spent more than $8500 on will also begin to peel and make my kitchen look horrible. Is anyone else experiencing this issue and is there anything that can be done about it?

    My dishwasher is doing the same exact thing and it looks awful. Mine is also just two years old as well. I have my info into LG. We shall see what the resolution is. I’m also worried about the other three appliances. The oven has one spot under a know that has a small peeled spot. I’m worried it will spread. :(

    Elane, I can understand your concern with this, however, we are working to assist customers who have encountered peeling on their black stainless appliances. If you provide a photo of the spot on your oven I can have it reviewed for service also.

    I have 4 LG Kitchen Appliances, Refrigerator, Dish Washer, Microwave, Gas Range. The stove has been replaced by Best Buy's Geek Squad because they could not procure a blower motor. Still cost me over $300 to downgrade from a double oven to a single oven. Last month I found that the dish washer grates had rusted out, Best Buy replaced them. Now I find that the black chrome finish is peeling on 3 of the 4 appliances, all except the range. Best Buy is sending someone out to inspect but says they probably will not be able to do anything as it may be deemed cosmetic. I spent nearly $6000 for these appliances in 2016 and they are beginning to look like they are 20 plus years old. If nothing is done I will go on an internet publicity tour to let everyone who will listen how bad LG products are. Sure hope you can do something to regain my confidence.

    Samuel2U, if Best Buy will not cover, you can contact LG and we review for coverage.

    LG Support USA . - fridge model LFXC24796D/00. I bought a dishwasher , fridge , stove and microwave not even 2 Years ago. The fridge and dishwasher are peeling. See the photos. Apparently this is very common with these very expensive appliances. What can be done to fix this? Lastly the icemaker suxs. We have to supplement by buying ice.  There are only 4 of us and 3 of us work all day.

    I am infuriated that the finish on my LG French door refrigerator is peeling! I purchased THIS very refrigerator specifically for the black stainless finish and planned my other kitchen appliances around this. From other posts it’s obvious that many are experiencing this problem. Never have I used anything abrasive and in fact some of the peeling issues are in areas that have no real CONTACT with everyday use, ie around the handles and drawer pulls. I am beyond frustrated. Please advise.

    Bought my LG refrigerator from Lowe’s 2 years ago and the finish on the bottom edge of the pull out drawer is peeling off. Has there been any resolution to this issue? This was to be the first black stainless steel appliance replaced in my kitchen, now it might be my last.
