What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good It is not possible to clean clothes with the amount of water it uses. I took a clean dish cloth after it was washed and put ut in a clean sink with water and soap. Swished it around and rung it out in the sink well. Absolutely disgusting water. Unbelievably dirty. This is a true test as to how good a washer cleans. Also the machibe holds the clothes hostage occasionaly. The door lock stays on. Beating the door and turning it on and off releases it after a 10 minute battle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good buy We bought ours a few years ago thinking maybe they had finally gotten the front loading thing right and who doesn't want to save water, right? Wrong. When you have to wash your clothes at least twice and use extra water, it does not save anything. I have clothing that has been lost due to the odor put into it by the washer. Our clothing does not come clean. Whites are a joke - it does not matter what detergent or additives or pre-treaters are used. Currently my husband does not own a white tee shirt. They are all brown. They were white when I bought them. He is not too hard on them. It is the washer. I am trading for a top loader with a soak cycle so that at least I am a little in charge of my laundry. Yes, you need to leave the door open all the time, but if you do laundry daily, this won't help because the machine never dries out. It smells awful. This was truly a purchase I regret. Sorry LG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Motor. It died. My wife and I were lucky to buy this machine used at a really low price. It was in good shape and hardly used. We had it a year and then the motor went out. I was thoroughly impressed with this cool washer, except that the motor broke. My appliance guy, who is certified with LG was surpised about the motor when he came to check it out. Maybe we just had bad luck. Machines break but I would still buy another LG. A KEY is to have a good water softener too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this product leaks We have had this washer for 3 years and it has leaked from the back of the unit 6 months in. We have had it serviced 2x and they cannot find out why it is leaking or where the leak is coming from. They have dislodged a sock that was sucked in the drum during a spin cycle thinking this was the cause, but no such luck. 2 loads later the unit started leaking again. We have water damage in the adjoining room because of the random water leaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing good to say What a waste. Takes forever to do a load of clothes. Leaves white soap stains on my shirts (only washing 4 or 5 at a time). Uses hardly any water so it is impossible for the clothes to be really clean. Gotta keep the door open to keep it from smelling. All in all I wish I bought a cheap top load washer. Sure it saves water but it uses twice as much electricity. What's the point? DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY NO MATTER HOW CHEAP YOU CAN BUY ONE OF THESE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Washer gunk on your clothes At least 1 other reviewer has had the same experience. I've owned the machine over two years and have consistently had a problem with brown gunk buildup behind the drum and a horrible smell. I have to leave the door open whenever it's not in use. Every few weeks the gunk gets flushed out from behind the drum and stains our clothes. These stains don't come out easily. I use Affresh regularly and still have the smell and gunk problem. Every three months I have to remove the lifter assembly (3 of them) from inside the drum and soak them in bleach to clean out the gunk. I use no softener and very little detergent with each wash. I really regret buying this machine!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too limited - loss of features Some of the very basics of a mother washing the kids clothes are gone. I can't soak clothes to get out stains. I can't do a quick rinse or spin. There is a rinse/spin cycle for 21 minutes but when I am wanting to rinse the kids uniform at 10p at night i can't quickly do so. I long for a spin only cycle!!!!! I'm not old fashion, just want some of the basics that should come with new technology. Didn't you have any mother's test your product???
