What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 495 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 3 out of 5 by good for a large family it is a good washer lots of room in the washer and dryer. it is very tall hard to reach in dryer if you are short . August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy way for clean clothing Just replaced both my 9 year old stackable washer and dryer. We really find the new machines wash and dry better and faster. The inside of each machine is larger so it does more wash in 1/2 the time. We were not happy with the place we bought this set and feel a large store is a better way to go July 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by no power, no help After working for 2 1/2 years, just ok. Today it gets no power though the power is there, so the smart diagnosis is no help. the 'help' for this problem is to call a repair person. The longstanding problem is adding non-chlorine bleach damages clothes. July 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too Many Options I think this washer is beautiful to look at and has a sleek shiny stainless interior. I am glad to have a front loading machine because I am convinced it is better for the clothes to not be "agitated" and it does save water. Unfortunately, it is impossible to figure out how much detergent to use. I use less and less all the time and still have too many suds, so I lose the value of saving water by adding extra rinses. There are many options but none seems to combine the settings I most want. The biggest problem is that the clothes simply do not spin dry enough for me. The second problem is that everything takes too long. I cannot adjust the time that the setting will take, so a small lightly soiled delicate load might be in the washer for nearly an hour. There is the added peculiar requirement to empty and drain the lint trap (I've never needed to do that before with any washing machine brand) which never has anything in it to be emptied. I did do the washer cleaning required and the washer smelled like the cleaning product for over a week, which was a problem for me because I use only "free and clear" detergent. So, some features are good; others, not so much. April 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my LG products!!!! once I got used to this washer s quality I decided to buy a LG dryer to make a matched set......no problems on laundry day any more! February 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Washer! Love this washer. It's good looking, quiet and gets the job done. Handles cleaning bedding products and towels really well. Love the quick wash feature. My favorite part is that you can call in and put your smart phone up to the machine and LG can run a diagnostics. Hope I don't ever have to that feature! ;) highly recommend. January 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product, but it rocks the house Overall I'm satisfied with this washer. Cleans clothes well, although our whites get pretty dingy. Could it be the plant based detergent I use? However, we installed this washer on the riser drawer, and the washer rocks so much that it rocks the entire house. I can't leave anything sitting on top of the washer, it will get jiggled off and crash onto the floor. I'm taking the washer off the risers and installing a counter above the washer and dryer so I can store items on the counter, since I can't leave anything on top of the rocking washer.

Answer: 
Yes, you can wash rugs in your LG front loader, I do all the time. This last time I had an error code for the first time. I thought it was out of balance but the water was not draining out. When LG tells you to clean the filter and drain the water hose at the bottom, there's a reason for that.

I usually wash like fabric's and the same type of backing and they do very well. I will wash 3 to 5 smaller ones at a time with no problem but this last time I threw 2 older rugs in that the backing was coming off.

The water did not drain for 2 cycles so I took them out, threw them over the fence and finished them up. Later that evening I opened the filter instead of unstopping the hose because it's quicker cleaning and the washer is out on back porch. The white rubber backing flakes came gushing out and more water than ever before, needless to say my next few loads had rubber specks throughout the clothes.

I put the washer through a tub clean and all was well!

Moral of the story- always clean that filter and hose even more often that is recommended. The moldy smell seems to dissipate and you'll be able to keep track of any dirty water buildup.

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.

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: 
We use this washer for cloth as well. We run two loads. First, a speed wash with just diapers, on hot, heavy soil, and fastest spin. Second, the Cotton/Normal setting, on cold, heavy soil, and fastest spin. No stains and very little smell. No need to add extra water.

Depending on the amount of diapers being washed, you may need to add other items to the second load to achieve the right agitation. The drum needs to be approximately 2/3 full.

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....

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.
