What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have owned this product for almost five years with no issues what so ever. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very fussy and quits adding water takes several repeated trys to get water enough to squish the clothes down into it & sometimes it never will. this is even with only about a quarter of the tub of clothes & water, so it's not overloaded. this is certainly NOT a set-and -forget machine - I can spend up to about an hour just trying to get the clothes pushed down into the water. also, the hottest water setting is lukewarm at best. this is a very frustrating machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not pleased 2 years after I bough the washer the bleach dispenser rusted completely, my husband tried to repair so I could continue using it, did not work. Machine continued rusting and leaking from the bottom. The inside spinner tanker than started to get very loose and making noise and bringing the cycle to an error. I continued using the washer because repair wasn't affordable and the rust all lover the dispenser containers did not look good. I don't think I'll buy another LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY My washer is less than 3 years old. Always get an error code when doing laundry. What should be a simple task takes hours to launder 1 load of clothes.Since reading reviews online,I see this has been an ongoing problem that the company refuses to acknowledge.

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.]
