What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG washer We have had this washer for a while now and not impressed at all. Water level never gets high enough to fully wash clothes. Clothes on top stay on top and never rotate to the bottom. Never leave any clothes in after cycle completes, after 20 minutes they will smell mildewed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Washer I have always had front loading washers so I was suspect of the top loaders. However, a friend of ours bought one and they love it. We went ahead and purchased this washer and haven't looked back. It is so quiet when it's running and does a fabulous job of cleaning our clothes. So glad we bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Level of CLEAN Having this new washer besides being energy and water conservative - my laundry is cleaner than with my previous washer. And having the High Extraction option is great for those load that hold water. My drying time has decreased dramatically, costing me less in electricity. And that is an EXTRA PLUS.

 Using a hE detergent, when the manufacturer says large load, are they referring to a large load in accordance with the tub size of this washer, or an average large size load?

Asked by: Joanie4849
Large load would be referring to the load size in accordance to the tub on the washer.

My washing machine stinks so bad like it has that musty smell and it's driving me nuts! It makes my whole downstairs stink and I can't Handel it. I do a tub clean on it at least weekly or more. I can't stand the smell and need to know why does it smell?

Asked by: Horselover65
We regret the trouble you are experiencing with the washer. If the tub clean is performed frequently and hasn't corrected the issue, then a technician may need to check deeper into the machine. 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
