What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this machine This machine has so many faults, the spin cycle is terrible so drying time is so much longer not to mention the weight of the clothes basket to carry to the line, the automatic water level is never even close, 2 sets of sheets & it selects level 1 which doesn't even wet everything that's in the machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this product great water saver But it leaves the lint on your clothes and sheets I don't know why they have lint collectors in the machines they don't work I wish i kept my 30 year old machine it worked better than this one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too dissappointing for the price I'm not happy to pick this washing machine. The lint filter doesn't do what it supposed to do. I had lint everywhere in my clothes despite cleaning the filter after each load, sorting between lint collector and lint producer fabrics. It is just too dissappointing that clothes should have come out clean but ended up with lints and sometimes some white swirls which appears to be detergent. Also, the fuzzy logic sensor supposed to estimate the level of water it will need. But lighter load results to more water while a heavy load sticks to level 1 only. Therefore, I have to manually set the water level. If I could just return this back and refund my money..i would definitely do. LG must try themselves so they would realised how frustrating it was! I don't know what to do. Too bad!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from this machine looks nice in the laundry But I'm afraid that's the only good thing I can say about it. I wish I had read these reviews earlier. Mine also leaves lint on everything, dark sheets have big swirls of white trapped in the centre. I'm on tank water only and I'm forced to over ride the water levels chosen by the machine to its full capacity as this is the only way I can get a near clean wash. I have been so disappointed with it. For all its settings I can only use Fuzzy on 10. LG any suggestions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Very happy with this machine. Love that I can fit so much in it. Have had no issues with anything and we have been using it for a while now. Everything is washed well and comes out lovely and clean. Definitely very happy with our choice of washing machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed in this product After doing extensive research, reading reviews & asking friends, I thought this was the machine to beat. After a week of using it I am bitterly disappointed. I have a disabled son & do several loads per day & don't have time to be glued to my machine all day. After the first wash my clothes were all tangled & difficult to get out of the machine. I have had lint over many clothes despite the lint filters being emptied after each wash. It doesn't spin the thicker items enough & there is no way of adjusting the spin speed. BUT my major disappointment is that the towels & face washers are hard & scratchy. I need them soft for my son as he has very sensitive skin. They have never been like this before using another brand of machine. I have had to use fabric softener With no real difference. I'm really sorry to have to write this bad review but it needs to suit our needs & it just isn't. I don't know what to do next. Can LG please advise what I should do?? We have other LG products which we are very happy with :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regret not getting another front loader I wish I'd read these reviews before I purchased not long ago. Endless problems with lint, even after checking pockets, turning things inside out etc. Am experimenting with different programs of washing, as I have had to use twice as much detergent, warm not cold water, and careful prewash stain treatment to get the same results as my old machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A.....W.....E.....S.....O.....M.....E.....!!!!!!!! Oh my god! My washing has never been cleaner! I can't believe I'm so excited about a washing machine. Lol But my old machine took forever to barely wash the clothes. Now they come out cleaner and smell nicer. The additional features are super easy to work out and very useful. Thanks lg! You guys rock!
