What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't dye clothes I washed whites with a hidden red piece of clothing. To take out the pink, I needed to fill the washer halfway with hot water, pour in the Rit dye remover and add clothes. It wouldn't fill without clothes and wouldn't run with the lid open. You can't do anything other than wash clothes. Disappointing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed! I have had this washer for less than a year and it does not work as expected. I bought this after reading the other comments and now wonder if we are talking about the same machine. UE is a constant on this machine. Hours to do a single load. It seems like the software to run the washer is poorly constructed or something, though it does seem to have the same problems every day. It is just not what I wanted in a washing machine. Never will buy LG again. Quality, ease of use, performance all poor in my book. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing washing machine I am so very disappointed with this washing machine! It can take a whole day to do a load of washing. Yes I did say a whole day! It has a system that balances the load of washing and if the machine's load becomes unbalanced (over which you have no control), the machine shows UE (Uneven load) on the control panel. It constantly refills itself up with water to try and balance the load - I am glad I am not on a water meter as I would have been contacting LG for a rebate on my water bill! If I had enough money to replace this machine I would put it out on the curb for scrap metal. The reason I gave it 2 stars instead of just one is that it does have a huge tub, which is useful and can fit a comforter in it. Very disappointed in this product LG - not your quality standard at all! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Washer!!! Amazing capacity! It can wash more clothes than the dryer can handle. Love the soft close lid, detergent/fabric softener/bleach add. Only suggestion would be to put the speed wash cycle option as either 1st or 2nd option, not the 5th. Quiet and love the different wash options. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
