What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Odor! We bought this a few months ago for a new house we built. At first all was well. Nice looking and cleans well, but lately there is a strong molding sewer-ish smell coming from it. Its bad! Cant figure it out. Might need to get with the warranty department on this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer, but I just bought this washer, love the front controls, intuitive settings. But something that was overlooked by those who designed it is the fact that women with average length arms will have a hard time reaching the laundry in the washer. I have to use tongs to get it out. The engineers at LG have to come up with a solution, either a bottom that lifts up to bring the laundry higher or some other kind of way to get the laundry out. I did not buy the front loading because I have a back problem and can not bend too well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I want to like this washer but... We've owned this washer 8mths and I'm rather disappointed. It sounds like a jet taking off in my laundry room on certain cycles and we have to shut the door. Washing sheets, towels, small blankets is a real challenge they enclose themselves, tangle and I usually have to do a 2nd cycle for it to even drain. Not my favorite, but not much I can do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware unless you are 6 feet or taller to reach your washed clothes you must stand on a stool to get your clothes from the bottom of the tub and I am 5' 7''. Beware if you don't have height of 6' or more. also with on/off panel in the front of the washer when you bend over to reach items you accidentally turn on the buttons and start a wash. poor placement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer and Dryer Have owned a set for over a year now. Love them. Wife complained about how clothes weren't getting clean, fixed the problem by not filling it up to the very top with clothes. I have no problems with noise from it. My wife has a hard time getting some clothes out from bottom, I am 5'9 and have no trouble at all. Love the steam feature on the dryer, has come in hand many times.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOISY THIS IS THE NOSIEST WASHING MACHINE I HAVE EVER OWNED. I HAVE A LAUNDRY ROOM AND EVEN WITH THE DOOR CLOSED, WE CAN HEAR IT ALL OVER THE HOUSE. I REPLACED A 6 YEAR OLD LG TOP LOAD MACHINE WITH THIS ONE AND CANNOT BELIEVE THE NOISE DIFFERENCE. IT IS LEVELED CORRECTLY. MAYBE THE NOISE IS DUE TO POOR INSULATION. I DON'T KNOW, BUT IT IS AWFUL.

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.]
