What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps going and going I bought this washing machine 5 years ago next month. We have 7 people in our family and the washing machine is going almost every day of the week. We just recently had to have the drain pump replaced- but I’d say our usage has probably been closer to about 10 years for a “normal” size family. Other brands have not done as well! Still pleased with this washing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are happy We have used our washing machine now for 2 1/2 years and have been happy with our choice. This is my first front loader so I was a bit curious how it would go. I am glad I purchased the extended warranty to rest better.

How long does it take to wash a normal load of clothes

Asked by: Cindy61
The cycle time for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3180CW depends on the type and amount of your load and detergent, water pressure and your chosen additional options. Each cycle has preset settings that are selected automatically. You may also customize the settings using the cycle modifier buttons. These variables may extend the cycle duration time as it may require more water, take more time to absorb the water or take longer to drain and spin. If the water pressure is too low, the machine will take longer to fill which will extend the wash cycle. Added options like the Water Plus will extend the cycle time as they require more time to fill the additional water. This machine also has an Auto Suds Removal which is a feature that is activated if the machine detects excessive suds in the unit. If it is automatically added without selecting an option, the unit will drain then add water to dilute the concentration of detergent. Each activation adds about 12 minutes to the cycle and it is possible for this feature to be activated multiple times within the same cycle...^IFV

How much should the drum move from front to back?? My drum can move from front to back more than I think it should. As it starts spinning the load can actually bump the door and does the same as the spin is slowing.  I can push my drum back a few inches.
