What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks often I have replaced the drain pump once, the cold water valve once, and now it has a drain pump problem again. The repair is only warrantied for 90 days, so there is no guarantee these problems will discontinue upon repair. I am very disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs like a champ! I bought this washer 6 years ago and have not had any problems at all. Get my clothes very clean and have not had any oder problems in the tub since I leave the door open and rinse out the water filter once a month. Great little basic washing machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Mold problems We had this machine for 5 years. It worked fine but developed mold issues right off the bat. We left the door open, cleaned it monthly, drained the tubes, and all the other recommended tricks to prevent mold to no avail. We tried everything to get rid of the smell - bleach, afresh, vinegar, borax - all with limited effectiveness. The smell would clear for a day or two and then be right back. If anything was left in the washers for more than an hour it would develop a mildew smell. I had to boil and/or soak overnight in vinegar clothes to get rid of the mildew smell that pervaded some clothes. We recently replaced the front loader with a top loader. Very frustrating since the machine is not that old and otherwise runs fine. I really can not recommend a front-loading washing machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Built to Last Purchased product in May/June 2008. Generally ran well/ as anticipated until October 2013 (about 5 yrs 5 months), then the washer experienced a catastrophic failure of the drum/ drive connection. Technician indicated that the unit would cost more to repair than to buy new. Wash machines are supposed to last 15-25 years. This LG was my 2nd washer. My first wash machine lasted 15 years (it was a fairly cheap brand). I know family members that had wash machines for 20-30 years. Inadequate materials, design and/or build quality of products like this make an otherwise good product a terrible value and a great disappointment. I also do not like the bad smell the front loaded units create despite always using the HE detergent and following the maintenance instructions (this seems to be a problem with many front load units), and the front load without the pedestal is not an ergonomic design (bad on back). The little it saves in energy (<$30/yr) and water (<$0.10/load), is not worth the significantly higher cost. It may be a nice thing to do for the environment, but it is a horrible investment for a product lasting less than it's intended life. If it lasted 15-20 years, it may be a worthwhile investment/extra cost. I will not buy an LG washer or dryer and will be dissuaded from buying other LG products due to this experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has mold issues. This product has mold issues and should have never been sold. An owner has to disassemble the washer to clean it about once a year. It is a very poor design and LG did not test it well enough before it was sold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cleans very well. bad on repair. I believe the washer is 5-7 years old...it came with the house. It washes clothes very well. The mold issues described in the other review are problems with all front load washers so i dont really have a gripe about that. I am getting ready to replace this one due to a wobbling problem that is causing the drum to rub against the rubber gasket. My biggest gripe is that at least here in idaho, repairmen dont want to work on this brand and the repairman that i did find willing to look at it said that parts are very slow to arrive from this brand. The bleach compartment is also not working. Since it will be ~600 for repair, i will be replacing it but will go with a different brand due to the repair challenges this brand has. Loved how it cleaned though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Some of the button features could use a little better quality but overall I am very satisfied with the washer.
