What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have had my washer now for 3 months. If I could get rid of it I would. No one informed me that I would have to purchase something to get my clothes out of the drum! I have tried standing on a stool to get them out but my arms just are not long enough! I think this is wrong!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! We bought this LG washer to replace an old Kenmore that quit working. We were worried that having the controls at the front would be a problem, but it has not been. The washer works great, and it is fun to be able to look inside to see each stage of the washing process. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Been about 9 months since purchase. Couldnt be happier. Both washer and dryer are working beautifully. Front panel on washer will be scratched on first day. Not sure why this happens as we tried to be very careful no to scratch it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE THE FRONT CONTROL. The front control works well and is easy to view. Setup was easy and everything was included in the installation kit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Happy with Wash Cycle I have had this washer for a few weeks and at first I was very happy with it and was ready to give it a 5-star rating but I have been noticing it is leaving soap scum stains on my clothes so I have to run my clothes through another cycle to get them clean. Otherwise it seems to be a good washing machine - it is deep as others have said and I am 6 feet tall. The drum is huge! I would recommend this washer with reservations - if it starts cleaning better I will change my review but as of right now having to run my clothes through 2-cycles to get them clean is a waste of time and water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crapola I will never buy another LG product again. I've had this thing for about two weeks now and it's already crapped out on me. I did a load of laundry and it worked fine, I did another load and the next thing I know I keep getting an error code. And now I am having to call Customer Support because this thing won't work.
