Laundry can be fun!
Date:January 12, 2012
Best Features: easy to use, Features/Settings
"After much research to replace my old washer, the LG was my choice over all. I have had the washer for several weeks and do at least one load a day. I have tried out many of the cycles and the clothes/bedding are clean. I have read the complaints of some users and I have found nothing to complain about so far. Yes, you MUST read the manual and follow the instructions. Yes, you must shake the clothes before putting them into the dryer to avoid excess wrinkling. Not a big deal; I had to do the same with my previous washer because the spin cycle is so fast! My clothes/bedding are clean even though less water is used; love the wave technology! Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and hope for many years of good service from this washer! Oh, and I love the glass top to see how things are going, I love the slam-proof lid and the little tune that plays at the end of the cycles!"

VERY Poor Quality
Date:January 11, 2012
Cons: Twists Clothes together, clothes have mildew smell, poor quality, poor customer service
"I have had this machine for a little over 1 year. One week before the 1 year warranty expired, the machine began making a loud clicking noise and was leaking water all over the floor. I contacted LG to file a warranty claim. All was good, until the service technician came to our home. It took the technician over 6 visits to finally "fix" the machine. One month later, in the middle of a cycle it just stopped working. I again contacted LG, and I was told that I am out of luck because my warranty has now expired. I will NEVER purchase another LG product again after this experience. What ever happened to making quality products that last? And to ensuring that Customer Service is truly Customer Service? Buyer BEWARE!!!!!!"

Great washer...with excellent features
Date:January 11, 2012
Best Features: Everything
"This washer performs excellently, regardless of the load and wash cycle. I love the ColdWater wash feature, which saves me money by lowering my overall electric and water bills. The pre-selected wash cycles are easy to use, and the auto-weight feature is perfect at determining what water levels are needed for each wash load. The machine is quiet, and cleans clothes better than my old washer, and it uses less detergent, softener, and bleach...which adds up to farther savings. The machine is beautifully designed. Thank you LG! Keep up the excellent products."

LG Rust Bucket
Date:January 10, 2012
Best Features: Adding rust to the wash
Cons: Getting stains out of clothes
""Stay away from this machine, and I would imagine the company in general. First experience with LG. I have owned this top load washer for 1 year and 3 months. I just noticed that there is rust coming out around the bleach tray. I just got off the phone with LG and the warranty oddly enough, ended 3 months ago. My first and last experience with LG. I find it hard to believe that I replaced a 20 year old Maytag (no rust) with a LG (supposedly top of the line) that is rusting in just over one year. If you own this, pull out the plastic liquid bleach dispenser (easy to do), and inspect for rust around the edges...it will be there. Hopefully you bought this under a year ago. I assume that all of their products have the same paint/clear coat/construction... so I would purchase another brand in any product that has metal and paint. Can't wait to see where the rust comes out next. Very dissappointed!!! Goodbye LG...""

Just because a washer is tough on dirt and stains doesn't mean it needs to be tougher on your clothes. In this case, it's even more gentle. Our new Wave™ Series washer is loaded with some hard-hitting innovations like deep cleaning WaveForce™ technology. It's also gentler on both your fabrics and your utility bills with smart options like ColdWash™.
