What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cautiously optimistic bought this 1 month ago. first week was a nightmare. first load, machine started walking across the floor (it WAS balanced/level). I was at about the point to return it. But, after talking to Home Depot rep, who had experience with LG washers, we started with smaller loads, i have it on a structurally sound pedestal, it is very level ( I have pictures to prove it), and it started to behave better. we slowly made the loads to a more average size, and it seems to be handling the loads well. It resets itself to balance out the load, in the spin cycle, which is where the problem was before. It STILL has fits where I feel that it is shaking too much, but it them seems to re-adjust itself, and finally figures out how to spin the load. It is easy to control the settings. We cannot put SOAP PODs in the soap dispenser, we cut them open (it seems that front loaders in general don't dissolve the pod cover very well). SO, keeping fingers crossed, we'll see how this does in the long term. This replaced my PRIOR washer, which had the shocks wear out, and that one had started walking across the floor also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I have been very happy with this washing machine. It's a sizable investment and I pondered what brand to purchase for a while but I didn't have a lot of time to decide as my current washer had started to have problems. I am Very happy with the decision to go with the LG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't use enough water, doesn't use enough soap How does anything really wash anything when it uses very little water and very little soap? For the first few washes, I let the machine use its automatic settings for washing clothing and bed sheets, and towels, that sort of thing. No extra water, and using the provided soap trays. Clearly, the machine doesn't use enough of either to properly wash anything. Compared to my previous washer (which sprung a leak at the bottom, is why I replaced it with this LG one instead of repairing it, the old one was 10 years old), I noticed right away that my white socks and shirts came out not as white, even with a full load of bleach in the tray. My duvet cover, I noticed, still had the smell I wanted to get rid of in the same place. My bath towel that I use every day, also didn't look as bright or as clean as what my last washer was able to do. So, now I am using Water Plus on every wash - but because this machine is a high efficiency machine, it takes an extra 20 to 30 minutes compared to my last washer, so that is very annoying. With the rolling, folding wash action, I would have expected it to be quicker, not slower, but because it still uses very little water, it takes longer? But without the addition of more soap, how does the machine really scrub, repel dirt, or get rid of bad smells away from materials? The Spin Cycle is definitely quiet. But the initial wash rocking action, back and forth, makes the machine go clunk and clunk, so that sounds like a hammer, and it's quite loud. Very disappointed in that. The dirty water dispensing pipe at the bottom is in a really bad spot, as it is too low without a pedestal to get it pour out fast enough, and I have to use a large empty plastic juice bottle to get it all out at once, there is so much of it. It's a very awkward thing to do, and makes you wander if you should buy the pedestal, but why? That additional piece is so expensive. I bought it, it's in my house, so I will live with it, but I will be using extra water and buying those Pod soap things to throw in extra soap to make sure the machine cleans properly. Oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Easy to use. For the price it has a lot of features and cycles. It is easy to use and it gets my clothes clean. The machine spins them more dry than my old top loader. I used to have to dry all my clothes twice in the dryer and now I only have to dry my blankets twice. my towels and everything else are dry that is a big savings. I love that it weighs the clothes and determines how much water to use so I don’t have to guess. I also love the way it lights up so I can see everything it is going to do in that cycle, at first I used to watch it wash the clothes and wonder how it could get them clean but it does. I have washed heavy loads. I have washed blankets. I have washed towels and I have washed delicates and everything has come out beautiful. It also lets me add more water to the load, at first I did because I was afraid things would not come clean but I have found out I do not need to. I would definitely recommend this brand and this machine

Hw much hot water does this washer use for a max load?

This unit automatically adjusts the water used to the size of load and has an option for Water Plus which adds additional water. Due to these features we do not have a spec for the amount used during a load. ^CP

How lpng is a wash cycle cor permanent press witnout extra added to the cycle ?

Asked by: Nicknamefor washer
Cycle time varies based on the load sensor, cycle selected and addition option available. It also varies based on the soil level and type of clothing placed in the unit, therefore there is no set amount of time per cycle. ^AC

What is the difference between cold and tap cold

Asked by: Mij48
"Tap cold" uses ONLY the incoming cold water, so it's whatever temperature your cold water is at the time. The "Cold" setting mixes the hot and cold water to meet the washer's set temperature for cold. ^CP
