What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine We love the washing machine. The wash cycles and extra options, such as time delay are great. I love having the control of how much water is used and the wash time I prefer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine Bought it another a month ago really like features and is pleased with how clean our clothes get

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built with great features! Replaced our 14 year old unit and we are very pleased. The higher power is welcome and the glass control; panel is a big improvement. The exhaust fan venting outside is very powerful and relatively quiet, while the microwave operation is very quiet. The only disappointment is that LG did not switch to LED lighting, especially for the under counter lights.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible Normal cycle takes forever and still fails to get clothes clean. Plus water fill process needlessly causes the pipes in the house to rattle

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like the refrigerator except the door is too close to the floor. Whenever we open the door, we need to be careful to keep our feet away so the door doesn't pinch our foot between the door and the floor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gets Mold and begins to smell i was very excited to purchase the front loading washer. After multiple attempts to clean the mold and ensuring we operate the washer as directed, we are unable to remove the mold or improve on the foul smell. I would not recommend this washer to anyone. To be fair, I have not reached out to LG for help mostly because online review already say that is a waist of time. But I will try and see what happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very bad vibrations and front door leaks bought new from Home Depot. and warranty from Home depot. this washer vibrate a lot the whole house shake Lg do not stand up to their products I did complain to BBB...but Home Depot was very helpful, where I bought this washer from. you cannot use this washer in hi speed. you have to use heavy duty vibration dampers, LG do not have them. Lg technician and Home Depot 3 time came to my house and could do nothing about this variation, they balance and level the washer many times, Home depot replace the washer twice. LG refuse... until I bought this product's anti vibration dampers but still could not use the washer on Hi speed. just do not buy it.

My washer smells musty. I have tried the tub clean feature but it doesn't help. Any suggestios?

Asked by: SMS2
Sorry to hear you are having issues with your machine. Below you will find directions on performing consecutive tub clean to rid your machine of buildup that may be causing the odor issue. If this does not resolve the issue, you may need to contact a service center to have the machine professionally cleaned. Detailed instructions on the required routine maintenance for your machine are located in your owner’s manual to prevent the issue from reoccurring in the future. ^AC Washing Machine Cleaners: Tide Washing Machine Cleaner or Affresh 1. Follow Directions on Washing Machine Cleaner (Due to the amount of buildup you may double the tablets on the 1st Cycle) and do 3 Tub Clean Cycles in a Row 2. Use 2 Tablespoons of detergent maximum for a heavy load and 1 Tablespoon for normal loads 3. If you must use fabric softener, use very small amounts and dilute with water before putting in dispenser

can I wash a queen sized polyester fill comforter in my LG front load washer model WM3050CW

Asked by: laundry engineer
Washing Machine buying guides advise that a capacity of 3.4 cubic feet or larger will accommodate most queen size comforters depending on their fluffiness. As indicated in the title description, this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.0 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3050CW has a capacity of 4.0 cubic feet which should accommodate most queen sized comforters and even some king-sized comforters. When loading the comforter into the machine, you shouldn't have to stuff it in and it will need room to tumble freely for an efficient wash performance so the comforter should only fill 3/4 of the wash tub...^IFV

I have a washer (Model WM3050CW) that is about 3 or 4 years old. We want to buy an LG dryer that would stack on top of the washer -- I understand that I will need a Stacking Kit (KSTK1) but, since it's an older washer, can I find a dryer to match? Thanks

Asked by: RobertHall
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine and its compatible products. Would a GAS or ELECTRIC dryer be needed for this installation? It is recommended to check our website, http://www.lg.com/us/dryers, for matching 27” dryers.
