What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have had 3 years and still love it! We've had this washer for over 3 years now and I still love it. I don't use all the extra features really, mostly the basics. It cleans well, uses less water and I got the drawer pedestals so my dirty laundry goes in there. It's quiet enough to not bother us at the dinner table or watching TV. It's' less than 90 feet away. I highly recommend it. This is my first LG purchase and I'm now a fan. Also got the dryer and love it too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this washer At first, this washer seemed great, lot's of fancy features but it wasn't long that the smell started and no matter what I do, it doesn't go away. I have babied this machine beyond what is reasonable and acceptable especially for how much this cost. I run the tub clean cycle with affresh or baking soda and bleach. I leave the door open always - very inconvenient in my laundry room that doubles as a hallway to the garage. I drain the water at the bottom after EVERY use. I only use a small amount of he detergent. I wash most of my clothes in hot water. I use extra water and extra rinses on towels. I never use fabric softener. All this and all I have to show for it is stinky clothes and a seriously bad attitude toward front loaders. I miss my top-loader!!!! No amount of energy savings is worth this headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome washer Quiet - For a washer this size, yes. You can't tell if it's vibrating either. Minimal maintenance - Just need to clean the inside of the door and water filter every month or so. But it's not a big deal if you don't do it for every month. Steam cleaning - Takes a bit longer to wash in this mode but it cleans without doing the damage. Sanitary mode - Extremely hot water washing mode that kills 99.9% of germs Energy efficient - I'm not sure how it can clean so well but it does; when the clothes just barely look wet. Sadly this model is now discontinued according to website

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We've enjoyed our washer and dryer over the last year and have had no problems. Just make sure the leave the door open after washing a load to ensure it doesn't start to smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Buy!!! This Laundry machine is the best!!! My cloths are cleaner than ever and I’m not afraid to wash my delicates right after my husbands dirty autoshop cloths :-) It is quite while it runs and at the end has a wonderful melody to alert you instead of most machines load alarming noises! Would Highly recommend to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WM2501HWA Steam Washer I'd wanted a steam washer for quite sometimes. I'd done extensive research on various brand name washer but LG seems to have the best reviews from the past users. One things I really like the LG steam washer was that it is simply to use and inexpensive comparing with other brand name with same features.
