What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate this machine This machine has been nothing but a headache! Constantly unbalances, doesn't fill with enough water or fills right up. Just realized after 3 years that to get a decent wash you need to set the machine on the true colour mode to get a decent wash and a decent rinse. I also have experienced on the final spin that it would suddenly fill with water. This is after I had the software replaced. Was very good of LG to do this since my warranty was up but it didn't do any good. I would never have bought this machine if I had known the problems and the headache it would bring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is very inferior for the price Purchased this product in March 2015 and from the beginning noticed there was not enough water to cover clothes to wash them properly. In addition there is also soap stains left on all the dark clothes and they need to be put through the cycle twice. From the beginning I was told the machine has a sensor to know how much water needs to be in the machine. Obviously there is something wrong with this sensor. Not any wonder they have discontinued this model. Would never purchase this brand again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution: Out of Balance!!! Agree with all the other negative reviews. This washer has an engineering flaw, how LG released this washer with such a flaw is beyond me. Get ready to manually wash your clothes because you have to continually adjust "out of balance" loads. LG should really consider making amends for such a wide scale problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fresh Start We purchased this washing machine to replace one we'd had for a number of years, and that'd had a number of repairs. This new machine is great, automatically calculates the load weight and all you need to do is select your cycle and temperature... also love that there is no agitator column taking up room and getting clothes and parts of clothes stuck under and wrapped around. Highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! After one year we started to get the large UE and small ue (uneven load) error signals. It takes about 3 hours to do a 1-hour wash — and that's if you stand by the washing machine, wait for the code ue code to come up, and re-balance the load. Over and over and over again. I too got the ue code when the machine was running totally without clothes! Water saving? The water usage is HUGE, because it keeps refilling and spinning, refilling and spinning. The repair man replaced the circuit board on it but it didn't help at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from satisfied overall The only negative is that hard to reach bottom to get the clothes out. I am 5.3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Washer Bought this washer to replace an older LG front load. I have had it over a month now, and have washed all types of loads - small, large, lightly soiled, heavily soiled and what can I say - the clothes come out clean. I also find that the clothes come out with less water in them, resulting in less drying time. There are plenty of features to accommodate all types of requirements. The tub is huge, and would be a bit of a reach to the bottom for a short person without a stool - the only drawback .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalance load Machine keeps going out of balance. Notice lots of issues like this when reviewing Internet. Called LG and they know the issue since they can quote you a price to replace the damaged part. This is the first and last LG product I ever buy.
