What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 603 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by EVERY INCH-AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!!! LG you really hit the jackpot designing this washer. You have thought of everything-right down to the little melody at the end. It is user friendly & gives cleaning options every which way. Laundry is super-clean-using a lot less water and detergent. Never thought at 72 I would love to do laundry--but I confess I do. You have made me a very happy camper. No doubts-buy it & enjoy!! November 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This washer is great! I have had it for a year now and it has performed great. It is quiet and clothes come out very clean every time. Love the load sensing feature,and easy push buttons July 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great washer!! My new LG does not shake the house. It is easy to use and I like the little melody instead of a buzzer that signals the end of the wash cycle. The front clean out is very convenient. I would like a spin only cycle but unlike my GE I haven't had the need for it. The 10 year warranty is great and was the deciding factor upon purchase. Thank you for a great product! July 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works well Works well, very quiet, uses minimum waterand electricity May 31, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's OK but not great I have had a front loading washing machine for many years. This is my first LG. I have not been too impressed so far. The clothes are always VERY wrinkled even if you take them out of the washer immediately. May 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by very nice, user friendly Purchased this washer about 6 moths ago and so far it has been great. it is quiet, fantastic on water use and does a great job cleaning even really dirty work rags that i use in garage. Only thing I would suggest is to buy the pedistal base, as cleaning the filter out is very hard if you don't have the base to lift the washer up. or Lg needs to move the filter up and make it easier to clean March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good washer for the money I got a good deal on this washer and so far I don't have any complaints March 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good washer for affordable price We chose this LG washing machine based on purchaser/user reviews, consumer reporting agency reviews, energy-saving features, and price. There was a "last item, open box" sale on this particular machine that prompted our final decision to buy it. I had a 14-year old front-loading Maytag washer that I really liked, which needed repair and (at the proposed cost for those repairs) had to be replaced. The LG washer DOES wash clothes excellently in very little water. It spins water out much more than any top-loading washer (as my Maytag also did), although it has left loads of blue jeans a bit more heavily wet than I had expected. It has washed dirty work clothes very well, and handles large items like blankets and bedspreads just fine. Negative features or problems: The door does NOT open easily; it has a very stiff latching mechanism and I have to use both hands to pull it open, which can't be normal and is probably a manufacturing glitch on (hopefully) just a few machines. Doors on similar washers in the stores opened easily. You'd think this door was locked every time you try to open it. The digital cycles and controls are easily to use, as advertised, but there's no option to just "spin" a load, such as when the clothes are still heavy with water when a regular wash-&-spin cycle finishes (as several loads of blue jeans were). They needed another good spin -- but you can't do it, you have to totally wash, rinse and spin the load again. The LG washer is NOT available in your choice of door-opening hinge position, like my former Maytag was. So your laundry room must be designed to hold a washer with a left-hinged door. You can't even special-order one with a reversed/reversible hinge. I understand this as an economical manufacturing decision (making different hinge-position doors costs more, and what if you don't sell the "other" hinged door and are stuck with the inventory), but it does limit how a consumer can use the machine. The unchangeable left-hinged door puts my washer in a dead-end corner where my wonderful old Maytag happily worked (with a right-hinged door) for so many years. I loved having the door hinge on the RIGHT. Another "iffy" problem: We just can't get this machine leveled. My husband is a handyman fix-it kind of person, and he has tried leveling it for weeks -- to no avail. The machine still vibrates strongly and shakes the floor (and the floor in the next room) when it spins a heavy load. So I'm not storing any china or glassware in the laundry room cabinets. Overall for the price, especially since we got it on sale, I'd recommend this machine. But I wouldn't buy another one if I could have gotten a different manufacturer's model with the right-hand door-hinge that I wanted, or if I could have gotten another machine just like my old Maytag. This machine is good but I still miss my Maytag. March 16, 2014

Answer: 
Yes, at least I do. I have washed small kitchen rugs (2' x 3') and I've also washed our larger entry way rug (maybe 4' x 6'). Both have turned out fine. I would use the large/bulky cycle and err on the side of caution when adding detergent. Then I just hang them on a hanger to dry.

The LG caused no ill effects to our bathroom rugs and kitchen rugs. Any dryer with high heat though might damage the rubber backing or cause wrinkling.

Answer: 
With mine, the prongs on the plug just had to be tweaked slightly when this happened - slightly wider IIRC - to make sure it would maintain contact. This was done after verifying the socket was good and noticing it attempted to power up when the drum was spun.

Answer: 
1- Get another electric gadget and see if it is the socket. You may need to have the socket replaced.
or
2- Look for a GFI outlet in your home. That GFI may need to be reset.

Can I manually add water to this machine?

I have this machine (wm2250) and need to wash cloth diapers. Cloth diapers need a lot of water to really get clean, is it possible to manually add water to this machine during the wash cycle. I've used the water plus button, but it doesn't seem to do enough. Also, which cycle will use the absolute most amount of water? Thanks.

Answer: 
I've been using cloth diapers in this washer for 4 months. I start with a delicate cycle with extra water, no spin, and no detergent. When this is finished I do a cotton cycle with detergent. Since the diapers are soaked, the washer thinks it is very full and adds more water. I've also heard about people adding a soaked towel to their washer.

Answer: 
We bought this machine just over a year ago and have been washing cloth diapers in it since January. The two things needed for successful diaper cleaning are lots of agitation and lots of water; this machine has neither. Although LG will tell you not to add water, I've been adding water for some time now with no observable adverse effects on the washer; I wash our diapers on Bulky using the water plus option, add two to three gallons of water to every wash cycle, and I set the soil level to the highest setting. One cold wash, one hot wash, one to two rinse cycles. Good luck!

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The amount of water used to fill the tub are calculated by the amount of time the water valve is open. The two cycles which run the largest amount of time for the water valve are the HANDWASH/WOOL and the BULKY/LARGE cycles. Additional water cannot be added to the tub other than by the WATER PLUS option.

Answer: 
I use an old cotton sock soaked in water, a little bleach and a little laundry detergent to wipe the rubber seal of any lint and moisture after every wash. Then I leave the washer door fully open so as to allow the washer to dry out dry out a little, then I close it slowly until the magnet holds it open just a little. If your gasket is stained then maybe increase the bleach in the cleaning water solution up to 1 part bleach, 3 parts water and a tablespoon of the "he" liquid detergent. All this works for me.

Answer: 
Try using a gel bleach product on it. It still might stain, but it's clean. Also, whenever you're done using the washer, wipe the rubber gasket and the door with a dry rag and leave it open for just a few minutes, you will avoid the mold.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. To clean the door gasket, it is recommended to wipe it down with warm water and a mild, non-abrasive soap. You may also use a bleach solution to clean it. Once it is clean, be certain to dry it thoroughly. It is also recommended to leave the door slightly ajar between wash cycles. If the gasket needs to be replaced, then this can be done by a licensed service technician. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....
