What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Purchased as a matched washer/dryer pair, mostly based upon Consumer Reports and user reviews. Washer is an average, middle-of-the-road performer. Makes a lot of noise, especially loud "click" sounds with every back-and-forth agitation in wash/rinse mode. Seems to clean okay. Would be nice to have an extra-water-level override like the newer LG models have. Would not purchase again compared to other LG and other brand models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features Only hesitation is how deep the drum is. I am tall 5'6", & find it difficult to get socks & smaller items out of the bottom of the drum. Otherwise a great washer, love the delayed wash option. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I bought this a few years ago and it is still running great. I have not had any issues yet and I love all of the settings. It can fit a comforter in it with no issues. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE I'VE HAD MY SET FOR 4 YEARS NOW AND IT'S BEEN GREAT. RECENTLY MY CLOTHES STARTED HAVING A MILDEW SMELL, BUT AFTER I CLEANED IT WITH SOME LIME SALE REMOVER, SO FAR IT'S BEEN FINE. I AM CONFUSED THOUGH, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CHANGE THE END CYCLE TONE, WHICH I WAS TOLD WHEN I PURCHASED IT THAT YOU COULD ADD RINGTONES. IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!!!
