What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible washer and dryer My dryer broke down after 5 months and had to be completely taken apart and repaired. The washing machine does not wash properly and worst of all, even the "Delicate" and "Wool" cycle spin at such a high speed it is ruining my clothes and towels. I put in fabric softener, use an HE detergent, follow the instructions on how much detergent to use according to the amount of clothes and still all my stuff is ruining. I even have to stop the spin cycle at the end when it gets down to 9 minutes or the clothes are even more ruined. My brand new $50 towels are ripped and my new sweaters. The comforters when I wash them have dirt and film on the top of the and I have to wash them several times so there goes the "eco" friendly aspect of this washing machine. All I can say is RUN FAR, RUN FAST from the LG washer/dryer!!! PS...I hang ALL my sweaters, pants and shirts to dry so it is not being ruined from the dryer or heat!!! I have photos of the items to prove it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst washing machine I have owned... Sure the features are there but I have to wash every dark load twice because they don't rinse properly. If I don't run the dark clothes a second time they have a white soap film on them. And my whites don't come out clean. This is my second LG washing machine. My last LG washer which was a front load that only lasted 4 years. Not happy with this product at all...especially given the cost of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from always out of balance and never cleans properly I have this LG washer for about 2.5 years now and I am extremely disappointed, almost every 2nd load will be out of balance and trust me I know how to properly load a washer and as far as quality of wash, absolutely garbage, never I got a satisfactory end result. Very powerful machine and good quality but no point of all these if it does not do the job its supposed to.I will never buy a top load HE machine ever again but will buy LG front loading washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super value for the price After 3 front loaders in less than 10 years and very awkward service from Sears, LG Top Loader was our best choice and the washer proved it by showing white as white and color as color, after all those years we are what you would say, very satisfied for the end result. Thanks Pat and Rina Michaud
