I am currently waiting while a repair man orders parts for my 4 year old washer. This is the second time I have had major repair work on this washer. The first was within the first year and a pump was replaced. This time, the entire inside workings of the machine will be replaced. The parts are covered by manufacturers warranty, so I am not out money, besides the original extended warranty I took out when I bought the appliance. Thank goodness I did that. However, I will be out of the use of my washer for more than a week, which is very difficult for me and my family considering I do laundry every single day.
I am extremely disappointed that LG makes a product that is not more reliable than this. I have always heralded the LG brand as one of quality.
I have also had many instances of mildew smells and leaking water.
When it is time for a replacement, I will chalk this purchase up to a lesson learned and go back to the more reliable washer and dryers of my past.

We have had this washer for 3 years and love it. It is easy to use and the clothes are nearly dry at the end of the cycle.

Will NOT clean your clothes!
We bought this washer in 2009 and this is my first review. You really need to use the product for a year or so before you REALLY know the product! Everytime I wash, large load and small loads, they smell sour. Yes, I clean the washer monthly but still have to wash my clothes at least 2 times before the smell clean. The washer only puts about 2 cups of water in the tub, at the most! Your clothes can not be clean if the are not in soapy water!!

I fell in love with laundry
I hated laundry. We moved to a new house and there was only room for a stack-able washer and dryer. So we had to go buy a new one. I wasn't too excited about this purchase, but I needed to clean clothes. We searched for a washer/dryer combo with good reviews and that was inexpensive. LG hit both categories. It wasn't until I got them into my house though that I discovered what an awesome buy I had made. The first thing that caught my attention was the cheery little ring that it made to greet you or tell you that laundry was done. This alone was far better than the dreaded blaring beep. But as I began to use the washer and dryer, I discovered so many great features that really allowed me to tailor what I needed to accomplish with my laundry. How dirty was it, how soon did I need it, did it need special care or extra spinning? There was an answer for every issue that might arise in laundry. I actually look forward to laundry now. What a difference in my life!
