What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous washer! I couldn't be more happy with my LG washing machine. This is my first LG product, and I bought it solely on the recommendation of a local appliance store. It has surpassed my expectations in design, quality, and value. It washes everything from delicate clothing to bulky comforters, and it does so with ease. I was unsure at first of the load sensor that determines how much water is needed for each load, but so far it has been spot on every time. My clothing, towels, and so on are always covered with just enough water to get the job done, but not waste anything extra in the process. I'm also saving money on laundry detergent as I don't need nearly as much to wash even the largest of loads. The machine itself seems to be very well-made. It doesn't make any loud noises when washing, and I haven't had any issues with unbalanced loads and what. The touch screen is easy to use, too. As far as the value of the product, I originally looked at washing machines from other companies that sold machines of a lower-quality for about the same price. This machine has a very generous load capacity at 4.9, and doesn't have an agitator which makes loading and unloading so much easier. Other brand's machines in this price range didn't offer the capacity, lack of agitator, or overall quality in design. I would definitely say this product is worth the money. Overall, I'm just really happy with this product.I will definitely be thinking of LG when it's time to get a new dryer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase I bought this washer two years ago and have a very large family so we have to use it daily. It is going as strong as if it were brand new. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed in LG After standing on my tippy toes and leaning over the control panels/board to retrieve all of the laundry for 2 years, the start button no longer works. What is so bad about having controls in the back? So children can't reach them. You could've eliminated the child locked feature. I am 5'7" and have always had a hard time getting all of the clothes out of the washer. I wasted more money on water because of washing loads more than once. Now I am worried that my double built in convection ovens with the same smooth control panel will break. Same as my dishwasher. I blame my husband for trusting LG to much. I am so sick. Ugh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big as a Jet Engines I love LG products, but in this case, I've got a major case of buyer's regret. I dream of beating this washer (and it's partner -- the dryer) with a crow bar every time I do laundry. Why do I hate them so much? I ordered them sight unseen from a local appliance dealer at a great price, which was my mistake and the reason I haven't requested they come and take them away. First, they are both the size of jet engines. I kid you not. They take up a ton of space for no practical reason. The gigantor washer tub might be great for a large family, but you can't wash 10 pairs of jeans in a few inches of water and now-a-days, technology controls the amount of water we use to do laundry to the point of being ridiculous. A huge drawback is that you can't reach the bottom of the tub, (which is where laundry ends up after the spin cycle!) unless you have cooking prongs to reach down and grab with. Awkward and inconvenient, to say the least. And who designs these high tech washer/dryers with all of the useless bells and whistles anyway? People who are driven by technology, but don't do laundry, that's who. The surface is slanted on both the washer and dryer, which makes them virtually unusable for any other laundry-related activity, such as folding clothes or leaving a basket on top. Are they efficient? Well, I'll give you examples of the dryer's capability, which tells the whole story. It takes 1 1/2 hours to dry two sets of bath towels, a kitchen towel and dish cloth OR two sets of sheets with 3-4 t-shirts thrown in. Two pairs of adult jeans and four pairs of board shorts takes about two hours. That should sum it up for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
