What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money spent I bought this over two years ago and like most buyers, at the 3 years mark it breaks down. It doesn't clean your clothes well. There is a nasty water smell in the bottom of the washer. You cannot get to it, to clean it out. Very disappointed in this machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from only lasted 3 years we only had the LG washing machine for 3 years now and the past few months its been having issues. It always stops washing clothes at 22 minutes and give us an UE or OI code. Not worth the money if the LG products only last 3 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible machine I bought this machine 4 years ago. Luckily I bought the extended warranty. From the first load I had problems getting the machine to finish a cycle due to being unbalanced. I tried numerous loading techniques. Had a repairman come out who did nothing but say it was fine. He did not run a load of clothes. Struggled with the machine for many more months thinking the problem was my problem with loading. During this period of time I had 2 knee replacements. My daughter in-law refused to use my machine. She laundered my clothes at her house. So, on to round two. Called the warrenty people to get the machine fixed. The fellow replaced a part. Didn't check to see if the machine spun out and left. There was no improvement. Called again. Different company came out. He said he knew what was wrong, but had to order a part. Three weeks later after I called them several times, the part was installed. We ran a load of towels that did not spin out. Repair guy calls LG who says need to try a different part. I had to wait without a machine another 3 weeks. The new part was installed, but but the machine did not work. Since I bought the extended warranty, LG refunded the purchase price of my machine and I bought a GE washing machine. This new technology LG machine is poorly designed with the whole spin system designed around magnets an a single spindle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT get clothes clean I bought this washer as an "upgrade" from what I had before. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! This washer does NOT get my clothes clean. I now have to pre-treat my clothes and scrub every little thing on the clothes. Then I have to use Oxi-Clean and detergent. Most of the time I also have to do this whole process multiple times. I regret buying this washer, but I feel I am stuck with it now. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent washing machine Very happy with top loader. Several friends have had front loaders that burn out. This was recommended by sales person. He said front loaders hang on a bearing and they burn out. This machine cleans as well or better than any machine I had in the past [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's works ok so far - three years I hate having so many buttons which I never use. It is definitely hard to reach inside to get the clothes out - much too deep. the other thing I hate is that the cover slams down on my head when I am getting the clothes out - basic engineering mistake! I've had this since 2014 and it is still working. That's the good part. It washes the clothes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Machine I have had this machine for a few years now and I miss my old machine terribly! The only plus is the larger load capability. Other than that, it doesn't use an adequate amount of water so I usually use the bedding setting which fills up more. I dont feel like my clothes get as clean as they used to. I also have kids and items of clothing that I used to be able to get stains out of using the same detergent are no longer removed by this washing machine.
