What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Numerous issues We have had this washer for six years, and in the course of the six years, we have had to replace the drum (it was punching holes in our clothes), and have had numerous issues with it not powering on. I'll unplug it several times, then replug it back in, usually with some sort of spark from the outlet. We've had the outlet checked and there are no issues with our electrical - the continuity meter tested the washer plug, and when testing from ground to the hot line, the meter jumped up and slowly returned, indicating a bad capacitor. Apparently we have a faulty mother board, and the cost to repair it is just not worth it. Additionally, we have a terrible time washing cloth diapers in this machine - never enough water to thoroughly clean them. It doesn't seem like it cleans our regular clothing particularly well either, and I only ever fill the washer about half full. I would not recommend this machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG Front Loading Washer We purchased this machine in 2011 and I am sick and tired of the stench. The mold, mildew smell is horrible. I am so tempted to get rid of it and go back to a top loader. I do the tub cleaning, empty the water hose, but the buildup and smell around the door gasket is TERRIBLE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best... Not so good on this. We had numerous calls for repair before we finally gave up, and bought a new LG washer. It's difficult to understand, as the washer was not that old. The new one has been fine so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washing Clothes FOR REAL + MADE FUN I never did believe what everyone was saying about having a frontuntil I loader is made easier on you and your clothes finally went ahead and purchased a new washer and found out myself. WOW!!! Most importantly your clothes are cleaner and washed thoroughly. On top of all that you don't even hear the thing running. Unbelievable, as always THANKS LG!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles lots of laundry We're really happy with this product. We had a lot of trouble with other brands and finally decided to try LG, though we were leery because we had never owned any LG products. It's been just over 2 years now, and we are very happy with this washer. It can handle a lot of laundry in one load, and it comes out clean. Lots of options to adjust wash times, cycles, etc. So far, very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer Low water usage. Clean clothes. What more could you ask for. When we sold our house a year ago we had LG washers and dryers. We were going to take them with us. The buyers wanted them. We sold the house. The LG helped the sale. We bought new ones when we moved. This tells you what we though of the design, quality and function of these great products. BUY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lg is the best I have had my washer for a year now. with so many cycles my clothes come out better, and softer. I love the feature on the bottom of washer to empty out water, and clean the filter. Lg stands up the the better well known names. I am getting a 52 inch lg TV next. I will not buy if it isn't and lg. Love them that much. go for it. They are great
