What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE!!! This washer is horrible. It is always out of level and takes 3 hours to do a 20 minute load. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product This washing machine is without question the absolute worst consumer product we have ever owned. Loads routinely take 2 or more hours to complete regardless of the mix (or quantity) of items in the load as the washer spends endless time (and energy and water) attempting to self correct what it determines to be an unbalanced load. We are lucky if 1 in 10 loads complete in normal cycle time. Again, regardless of what is in the load. Do not consider this product EVER...even if refurbished. Even if free!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UE Code Constantly Stay away from this washer. I have had mine for 3 years. Worst washer I have ever had. 6 months after I purchased it they had to replace the tub. Now I get a UE code on just about every load. Instead of flashing the code and stopping the machine resets itself and will go through the rinse and spin cycle over and over. So much for water conservation. DON'T PURCHASE THIS MACHINE [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse Washing machine ever It was off balance the first day it arrived and has been off balance every day since, every load of wash stops with the clothes are tied up so when you pick up one piece all the clothes are in one bundle, I don't have a choice on water level so you get one inch of water to do a large load of clothes and I have to add buckets of water to get enough water to do the load and you have to unlock the washer to put any thing in. I have told every person I come into contact with don't buy this washer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse washer I have ever owned!! Owned for about 4 yrs now. After about 1 1/2 - 2 yrs washer started taking 3 hrs to complete the wash cycle. Should have only taken 45 min./The washer kept on trying to re-balance itself which means filling up with more water. I thought this was a high efficiency washer! I kept on rebalancing the load myself to try and prevent this. Still took 3 hrs. Now stops filling up with water and the lines are not clogged. Now looking into it after being so frustrated find it is discountiued! Wonder why??? What about the people who paid a premium price for an item that should last longer than 2 yrs!! Will not buy and LG washer again! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Discontinued for a reason!!! I have owned this for just over five years. After about two years I began noticing very fine debris in my laundry and in the tub. This happened to be the top of the washer deteriorating (rusting) and the coating flaking into the wash along with the rust. This should never have happened since I don't use a bleaching product in my wash! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from died a slow painful death at 2.5 yrs We bought the LG set of washer and dryer because highly rated through CR. Read manual, used right soap. Did great for about a year and half to 2 years when started with the unbalanced load issue that seems to have plagued many LG/high efficency washers by reviews. Made sure balanced and tried everything from smaller loads, manually readjusting load, varying speeds for spin cycle, etc. Eventually, it got bad enough that it took several days to wash one load if left unchecked. Mercifully, it died completely when the tub broke loose and the machine tried to walk out of the room. I have never purchased LG before and likely will not go back. On the brighter side, the drier (gas) has worked well. Not sure why the website will not let me post without agreeing to sweepstakes entry. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
