What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Does a great washing job. Have had not mechanical problems since its purchase. Not difficult to set up for the type of fabrics that you are going to wash. And finally the wife love the color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shakes and Breaks Owned for four years. Problems from day 1. I had two repair men out in the first month to find out why it shakes my whole house; still a problem. Main computer went out year two along with the bearings and door lock; not covered by warranty. Stinks like mildew though I clean and air out the machine after every use. Ties clothes into knots; literally. Does a poor job of removing pet hair. It does look nice in the laundry room but I think it will look even better on my curb next garbage day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Have only had it hooked up for a few months, but am happy with it so far. Easy to change and customize settings. Only negatives are a bit of a smell after washing (it helps if you leave the door open to let it dry) and that it has a longer run time than the old top-loading washer I'm used to. But it gets clothes clean, uses less detergent, and is pretty to look at. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Front Loader Washer doesn't clean my clothes I was super excited to purchase my High Energy front-loader washer and dryer combo. When we first purchased it, it was wonderful. I did not need a ton of of detergent and I looked forward to less washing and more energy and water savings. The first thing i noticed was that our clothes took longer to wash but the dry time was comparable to my old dryer. As time progressed, I started to see spots on my clothes. I then reviewed the maintenance procedures, hoping to correct this, but to no avail. We have tried third-party products to try and clean the drum, we clean the dispenser daily, because we wash daily; and clean the drain pump filter and hose assembly. We have a water softener and still have issues with our clothes. For what we paid for these units, we expected better results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product - Stick to TV's LG I am so sorry to have to give such a horrible review of this product. We have had the WM2301HR for 2 1/2 years now. I was expecting to upgrade the quality of our washer. After all, we spent a lot of money in order to upgrade the quality and capacity of our laundry loads. What I did not expect was to endure such a poor performing appliance for the amount of money we spent. Our clothes used to smell clean with the old-school, cheap, top-loading washers we have owned in the past. I was expecting even cleaner & fresh-smelling laundry with the LG. However, we have spent 2 1/2 years of semi-clean, musty-smelling laundry that takes much longer to cycle. The extra features of the LG do not help. No matter how much we run the cleaning cycle, wash w/ diluted bleach inside of the drum as the manual suggests, or clean seals and door after each load, which we have done for 2 1/2 years, the musty, moldy smell never goes away. We have to leave the washer door open for it to air out, but it never goes away. In sum, I am thoroughly upset about purchasing this unit. The dryer is ok, but we could get the same performance from a cheap unit. Nothing special about the LG. In fact, everybody we have spoken to that has the same unit hates the smell it emits and feel similar feelings about the quality of the cleaning. The old units never required wiping down or running a clean cycle every month. Never a bad odor from the cheap top loaders. This is quite possibly the WORST appliance purchase of my life and I regret to inform LG of my dissatisfaction. My main frustration is that I work so hard for every dollar and I save for so long to finally afford to purchase this and it turns out to be a waste. I cannot wait to replace this washer & dryer and I wish I had trusted the original reviews I read about the never-ending odor and laundry that doesn't smell good. We have tried everything to give the unit a chance, but nothing works. I hate to give a bad review, but I must be honest to anybody considering purchasing an LG washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful system overall this dryer is fantastic and works very well in all modes. Need to clean the filter after each use but not difficult to do. The price is a bit high so that is the only downside that I have seen after over one year use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bearing problems after 2 years My washer started making a very loud noise during the spin cycle. After calling LG's customer service I was told it was a bearing issue and that it was not covered under warranty. The motor is covered for 10 years, but the bearings or anything else for 1 year. I have noticed that this problem is a trend with all LG front load washing machines. The cost to replace the bearings is anywhere from $350-$500. So most technicians won't even replace the bearings. They recommend just throwing it away and buying a used one. Used ones are selling for $350. I would highly recommend buying the "In Store" warranty if you decide to buy this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my new washer I am loving my new shiny red washer. It looks too good to be stuck in the laundry room. I am pleased with the job it does and love the way it sings to me when it is done. My family has joked that it sounds like the ice cream truck is coming.
