What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderfully efficient washer, the first two years Our old top load agitator washing machine could no longer be repaired, so we moved up to a front load. At least it still washes well, is very efficient with water and electricity, and has many good features which we use. No WiFi, which is fine. We don't need WiFi on a washer, or a screen on a refrigerator. Just give us an appliance which works well for a couple decades, like our old washer. We were very happy with our LG for the first two years, but since, loads have become unbalanced often and the washer walks around the laundry room. We are on a concrete slab so the floor doesn't shift, have not changed the leveling feet, and not overloaded our washer, yet we worry that the internal drum supports may be loosening or the bearings may be going. Any support from LG? Not really. We are out of warranty, so tough luck. Call a repair person. We will continue sliding this heavy washer back into place every time it walks (and keep the door to the laundry room open, so the walking washer doesn't block the door).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bst washer, but large loads cause imbalanced spin For the first few years, we have been very happy with our LG washing machine. It is much more efficient than our old top loaders, spun water out much better to shorten drying times, and treated delicates with care. Unfortunately, large loads now get out of balance often, requiring us to stop the cycle to redistribute the clothes. This never occurred the first few years. Now, we have even had it “walk” almost 2 feet when unbalanced. We are on a concrete slab, so our floor has not changed and we checked the feet to be certain that no corners were causing the imbalance. Unfortunately LG customer support had no suggestions, other than redistributing clothes and checking the feet. We are now out of warranty, so any repair call will be expensive. Why would LG not tell us how to safely open the top to check the tub mountings to determine if they had loosened? We just hope it doesn’t blow the door open on a high speed spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doing the job So far so good. Attractive and easy to use. Electric cable too short and so I had to purchase and attach a longer wire.

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
