What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worked great for 2 years Now that I've had the LG machine for several years I got to know the design flaws. There is no way for the consumer to get the lint out of the machine when it builds up and prevents the drying sensor to work. The motor and fuses blew and so far, I have had the repair person 4 times. Good thing I got an extended warranty [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lemon! This thing has given me nothing but problems! It has broke down several times! The drain hose broke ruining my wood floor! Then the drain pump failed and had to be replaced. Then the steam fan got glogged and had to be cleaned, the tech said it happens and nothing i can do but call for service regularly. And now it is not drying my clothes and had to be drained manually. Luckily i got an extended warranty, but this doesnt account for the hundreds of dollars i lost to take off of work to wait for the repair man. I plan on buying a new washer and dryer and taking a sledge hammer to this product! If i can keep one person from buying an LG product, my job is done!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defective drain tubing--replaced and began leaking Not too long after my initial purchase the drain hose began a torrential leaking during the drying cycle. I had a warranty and it was replaced. Now the replacement is leaking in the exact same spot. Obviously, this is a part defect. Other than that I love this machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dryer quit working and can't be fixed! I bought this combo washer/dryer only four years ago. It has had to be serviced twice. Now the drying cycle makes the clothes sopping wet and the repair service can not figure out how to fix it! A lot of money spent on a short-lived appliance!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor been replaced annually About 12 months after purchase the machine motor stopped. Had it repaired, and had to pay the full price since the 12 mo warranty had just expired. At the 24 mo anniversary again the motor went out. Again had to pay full price for the repair. Now the motherboard is out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my washer/dryer combo I bought my Front Loading Combo, July of 2013. My machine is ventless, something I thought would be pretty good. I haven't had any problems with my machine. I love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2012 and am delighted with all the features. Had some trouble at first figuring out the "Spinsense" but it works beautifully on wooden floors.
