Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 268 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicest Washer I have ever used full of features and so far works great. Its a pleasure to do my laundry now! June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by washer Exceptional. Does a fabulous Job! i Will stick with LG forever. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product does everything for you Great product. weighs loads uses right amount of water then goes through the cycles all you have to do is add detergent and push start March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this washer! I got a super deal on my washer. It was the store floor model so I bought it at a bit of a discount. Such an improvement over my old washer, it makes my dryer seem more efficient with how well it spins the clothes. I have had it for over a month now and so far seems to be one of my best buys. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! This is a great product, super quick and easy to operate and energy efficient as well. With a big family and a dog I do a ton of laundry and this is a great unit! February 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Get The Job Done Bought this in 2014 and have it for 3 months short of a year. I love the quite washing processing. My clothing is clean and fresh after each wash. I use the pods as detergent. I am very happy with my washer! GOOD VALUE for my money January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quiet and has great features. This washer is quiet and does a great job on all laundry types. It has various valuable features and is easy to get used to the controls. The only concern was that our water pipes banged when the washer closed the valves. Instructions indicated to back the inlet valve off a bit and this solved the problem. Great washer! January 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great But..... I do love this LG washing machine. I love that it has a large capacity, is basically quiet, does the job, is easy to load. Where I think the designers failed is with the drainage pump located at the bottom of the machine. The drainage tube is too short. It does not pass beyond the door to the little compartment making it hard to empty the water into a container, and the filter was hard to remove to check it. I had to use a wrench to open it. When I put the filter back, I did not realize that I needed to make it very tight to avoid water on my floor. I hope that with their next version of this machine, LG will lengthen the drainage tube. If this is the situation with other washing machines, they should consider fixing the feature in the other models as well. March 7, 2015

Can I use Downy Unstopables in this washer?

I just purchased this washer (so excited!) I know we should use liquid deterrent and such but maybe I can toss the the scent beads directly in the bin instead of the dispenser, or should I find a liquid scent booster?

I have been using Downy Unstopables since the day I found them at the supermarket. I went onto Downy's website and checked the product faq and Downy confirms they are safe for front load HE washers. I have had no issues using them either.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. If you wish for a substance to freshen the clothing, it is recommended to use a fabric softener with the appropriate fragrance in the appropriate dispenser. The manufacturer does not recommend adding anything directly into the wash tub itself. Also consider that most of the additives are designed for a 60 gallon wash cycle, rather than 13-15 gallons.

Answer: 
We literally just throw in what feels like, or looks like a reasonable load. We do not stuff it full, of course. I'd say that with a dry load of shirts, pants, underwear, etc. loaded in, the tub appears to be perhaps half full. The washer measures the weight by rolling the tub slowly in each direction several times, and after that process is complete, it adds the appropriate amount of water. There is seldom a lot of water in the tub but don't worry about it as it seems to clean everything excellently.

Lost our owners manual. There is some where you must drain the washer from build up water over time. I need help figuring out how to do it.

On the bottom left, there's a drawer. You also have to clean the filter in there.

Water Hammer wh3250

I have read that there are some complaints of this problem. What is the resolution recommended from LG Engineering? I think one suggested by Jim70 might be appropriate. So is there a water pressure adjusting device recommended for this machine?

The older water valves may leak if turned only partly on so maybe replacing with the newer stainless valve might be helpful. ???

Answer: 
A water hammer arrestor is an inexpensive device that acts like a shock absorber and fix the issue. Plumbers sometimes add a vertical length of capped pipe near the faucet but this fills with water eventually. Draining the water system will fix it for a while.

Answer: 
If you are experiencing a water hammer effect in your pipes, there is a way to resolve that. Try the following steps to attempt resolution to the situation. Shut off the main water valve to the home. Turn on all the faucets, opening the lowest one last (this is usually the faucet on the outside, for a garden hose). Once the lines are empty, turn off all the faucets. Turn on the main water valve. Turn on the faucets again, one at a time, from the lowest to the highest.
