What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Terrible Purchase We purchased this washer about three years ago after reviewing a number washers. We loved the large capacity - as we do ALOT of laundry with three boys. But soon to discover that the washer is hyper sensitive and keeps refilling the tub to "balance" the tub. I can't even fathom how much water we've wasted...some loads have filled and refilled at least 2-3 times! It seems when I fill the washer to capacity, it doesn't become unbalanced, but once I put a smaller load in - there is the "UE' error and the gallons of wasted water. I wish we could just turn off whatever is making it need to refill multiple times. So we finally had enough - and are going to get a new washer - that is NOT made by LG. We probably could have purchased a new washer or two - with all the money we spent on refilling the washer. Not efficient at all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk! I bought this machine less than 3 years ago. If you had asked me a month ago how I felt about it, I would have given it 5 stars. But then the dreaded UE code started to appear multiple times in every wash load. It even appeared when the tub was empty in a Tub Clean cycle! How can the load be UnEven when there is no load? I have googled this problem and found out it is quite common and difficult/expensive to fix. It takes HOURS to complete one load. Sometimes I just give up and hand wring the wet clothes (the UE always appears during the rinse/spin cycle) and put them in the dryer. I have also shut off the power and restarted the machine in the Spin Only cycle. Don't know how much longer I can handle this before buying a new one. Not happy with LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Perfect example of scrap I've had this washer and accompanying dryer for 3 years. The dryer is wonderful and I have no complaints. The washer is incapable of washing without becoming "uneven". We have tried as suggested by placing clothing by weight around the drum like a donut, small/large loads, making sure the washer is level and nothing works. I despise this washer so much that I am considering taking it somewhere to have it crushed because I could not in good conscience sell it or give it to another person. I feel taken advantage of for spending the amount of money that I did on this piece of garbage. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG = Life is NOT Good This washer has been a nightmare since new with the UE out of balance problem. After 3 years to the date of purchase I junked this machine and bought a Maytag washer with an agitator. Wash time is now 45 minutes compared to 2 to 4 hours. Saving water and electric is also a plus. I will never purchase a LG product again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalanced We have had this washer for a few years. It started out great and for the last 6-8 months it throws an unbalanced code. I can not find a solution. I would never recommend this product to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful We purchased this unit and matching dryer about 3 years ago. The large capacity and 10 year drum warranty attracted me to this model. However this is THE worst washer I've ever had. The cycles are insanely long. And regardless of the amount of clothing you put in it the machine gives a "UE" error code and stops. You have to then readjust everything and restart it. You then get to do the same thing again about 4 minutes later. I should have never purchased the LG given the experience I had with their phones. I will not purchase another product from them again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst appliance we've ever owned. An absolute nightmare. This machine can't do a basic load of wash without unbalancing. I wouldn't mind if it would just stop, but it tries to fix itself by re-filling and re-filling and re-filling.... It sucks water and electricity like a monster. After two years of this, my wife wants to take it to the dump. What a waste of $$$. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs constantly with error code I have had this washer coming up on 4 years and within the last month it will not run through a full cycle. It constantly reads UE and no amount of adjusting or different size loads helps, this even happens during the Tub Cleaning cycle. We've tried resetting the washer and it makes no difference. I'm very upset with this washer. These products are built to break. The computers fail which causes them to be inefficient and worthless without spending a pile more on an extended warranty. Money, utility, and time wasters. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
