What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES This is a terrible washer, it came with the house we bought. IT DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES. I've tried all the recommendations from LG, nothing is making it clean clothes. Armpits still soiled with deodorant. Secretions still stained on underwear. Urine accident in child's sheets still come out smelling like urine. Chunks of oatmeal still on child's shirt. Mud still on pants. Awful Awful Awful. What a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap manufacturing My washer is one year, 2 months old. The tub seal broke and water leaked everywhere leaving 3 inches of water in a little over 5 minutes, causing me thousands of dollars in kitchen cabinets and floor reapirs. Of course LG only covers parts and labor for one year. Go figure!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disapointed!! After 40 years of hand-me-down washers and dryers, I did a ton of research before buying my first brand new set. The dryer is fine. The washer turns out dirtier clothes than when they went in. I'm not exaggerating! I have to hand wash my yoga pants or anything black to get them clean. If I could return it, I would!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this I have had this washer for over a year only because i can not afford another one and by the time i noticed how bad it was i could not take it back to the store. It is self levelling and how it does that is by filling up with water again and again, it will try 3 times. It doesnt put enough water in it so i am always doing the bedding bulky level now add in that it tries 3 times to self level that means i am paying to fill this washer 5 times or i am babysitting it so it wont happen. Well i have been running it without the spin cycle going and then when i have time to babysit it that is when i do the spin cycle. A heavy wash says it will take 1 hr to do and it takes almost 2 so again extra hydro is being used. There is to many things wrong with this maching for LG to even be thinking about still selling it. But hey you cant find their name on the maching so to them it doesnt matter. When i get another washer this one is going to scrap because i wouldnt even give it to someone i do not like thats how bad it is.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I have had this horrible machine for about 18 months. It leaves a horrible white residue on all my clothes in every load. It doesn't use enough water and a 57 min load can take an hour and half, so how is this machine high efficiency? I have to rewash nearly every load! Most expensive and time consuming. I have soft water so no water build up, use name brand liquid HE detergent, use the cleaning mode. Nothing works, this machine is a piece of junk. 1 star is as low as I could go. I have read many reviews on HE machines and many have this issue, so before buying this type of machine, research it well, or go old way, get a non HE machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Let it go! Bought this appliance 2013 & regret suggesting to our daughter that she should buy the same model. The machine broke down in Feb & discovered that Elite Appliance Repair had exclusive authorization. I had to grieve a $25 per visit 'city charge' that was reduced to $10 'fuel charges'. Their head office is 20 min from my home. After 1 month & close to $700 out of pocket for repair & laundry services we could have purchased a new appliance & been much happier. Just returned from our cottage where we discovered that our 5 yr old LG fridge was completely dead! Couldn't face another service experience it's headed for the dump tomorrow!
