What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells terrible! Started off great, but the. We started getting this awful smell. We clean out the bottom hose and drain it weekly but the smell won’t go away. We’ve thrown in the towel and are moving away from this machine!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shaker! The self- balancing feature no longer seems to be working. The machine will spin out of balance, will not stay on pedestal and shakes the entire house. I would like to speak to a specialist about the issue, but NOT through social media. Not everybody is on Tweeter or that Facething.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Balance weight falls I bought this washer in 2017. Worked fine a little over a year. Heard a bang the washer started to shake violently. The weight fell off of the drum. The weight is only held up by four plastic pegs and bolts. Two of the plastic pegs broke and the other two vibrated out. I do not recommend this washer for anyone.

what dryer would match this

Asked by: andyk49916
The matching dryer for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra-Large Capacity with NFC Tag On Technology, Model # WM3170CW was the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Electric Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W and the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Gas Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLG3171W. Both those dryers are discontinued dryers, but any of our current 27" 7.4 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled Electric Dryer with Sensor Dry Technology or 7.4 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled Gas Dryer with Sensor Dry Technology or 7.3 cu. ft. Electric/Gas Dryers with Sensor Dry Technology will match the washer...^IFV

What is de2 code

Asked by: Elijahsamuel22
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The dE2 code denotes a door error. It is recommended to check the door seal and door frame for obstructions. Be certain that the door is completely closed, locked and free from clothing or other items. Once this has been checked, if the error still occurs, then the washer may require service. 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/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

i used the Smart diagnosis feature on my smart phone and said I need to run bucket sterilization cycle. I only see a tub clean cycle, is that the same thing?

Asked by: mike2552
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Yes, these 2 labels should be the same feature.
