What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would never buy this machine again I bought this machine 7 months ago. It was a horrible mistake and an expensive mistake. It smells musty, ruining my clothes and spitting out dark mold onto my clothes can't that I have to rewash to remove it. I follow the instructions about cleaning the washer it didn't help. Worst machine ever. The features are fine but the smart feature to tell you to download the app if you need a stain removed and the machine recognizes the type of stain it is doesn't work in Canada which the sales rep didn't mention.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easy to use BUT Do NOT buy this machine. Unless you wear track suits all day. It does not wash cotton work clothes like LG claims. LG service will confirm that the machine turns on and you're left with sub-par clean clothes. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just enough features and easy to use I bought this to replace a competitors upright washer that was only a month old and a nightmare to use. The LG has just enough of the right features that are easy to use and deliver a consistent result. The overall size is perfect for my smallish second-level laundry room, yet it can easily and quietly handle large loads. Highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Smell I bought a top loading LG washer to replace my conventional washer. I debated a front loading washer, but decided to go with a top loading machine for many reasons with the main reason being the musty, lingering smell many talk about that is generated in a side load machine. I believe this washer does clean my clothes, however; the musty smell from the machine is terrible. I have used the tub clean setting, sanitize setting, added bleach with no solutions. Another problem is how this washer is a smart washer and calculates the amount of water required - the user cannot manually adjust this amount. This is problematic when adding more clothes to the washer - even adding 1 sock will change the amount of water the machine calculates. Imagine how much water is required when my son forgets to move the load over and needs to rewash the damp clothes. My next washer will definitely similar to the old conventional one this one replace. Very expensive lesson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this washing machine This is my 3rd washing machine and am very happy with it, what a difference from the other 2(different brands) they couldn't hold a candle to this LG product. I will definitely stick with this brand, and as soon as my other (brand) dryer is done, I will be purchasing an LG dryer
