What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase I ever made. I bought this machine because of the features and the looks and I thought LG was a reputable name. I regret the day I got rid of my old machine of 37 years. Since day one, this machine goes out of balance constantly, fills, dumps water, refills, wastes more water than ever and a load takes about 2 hours to wash. You call this energy saving and high efficiency. The clothes never look clean and they come out with stains and half the time tangled. We had 3 service calls in less than a year. I will never buy an LG product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the product...Very Quiet The only issue I have is that the height of the washer is very deep.I am a 4'11 woman and I need a stool to get up inside to unload the clothes to the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer! I do love this washer, after having a front loader. I've had it since April and noticed about a month ago that water was leaking onto my floor with every wash. The washer was emptying into the basin. Aside from that, the wash is amazing and the features are fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one is the best of all. Quiet you said ?, not only you don`t hear it at work, its load capacity is beyond what we were used to. We will really maximize our smart investment.
