What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did not live up to expectations I selected this model based on the recommendations of The Brick salesperson. Less than a year, the hinge section of the lid cracked and as per The Brick "is not covered under warranty" The LG Customer Service team was great, but The Brick appliance service department is an entire story. Some people from The Brick were helpful, but now I'm stuck with a washer that cost a lot of money that I cannot use. The construction of the hinge outer compartment in plastic was not a sound manufacturing decision. In summary, it is a great machine, but I must have received a faulty unit that passed QC when it should not have. There was probably a hairline crack in the black area that went undetected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic quiet washer We've been impressed with the ease of operation of this unit. Super quiet and does a great job of washing. Clothes spin out until very little water is left and therefore cuts down on drying time. Huge capacity has cut the amount of washes per week for our family drastically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This washer is the best , it saves you money I have owned this washer for over a year and I Love It. It cleans the clothes the best of all other washers I have owned. When I purchased this washer it was after having a front loader and I did not think I would like this washer as much...BUT I Love it....The Huge washing TUB cleans Large comforters and Duvets and spins them that they are almost dried...I have found my power bill and water bill has gone done ...I love all the different setting you have to choose from...
