What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good - not Great Besides the molded rubber ring inside tub (adjoining glass), the unit has been good, not great. About every 3rd wash it will leak from underneath, about one (1) cup of water. We have had tech out - "mushroom valve clogged" too much detergent. Interestingly, we use LESS detergent than the manual (and on-line LG specs) recommend. Pathetic...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tub linkage completely failed The tub, which contains the laundry, completely separated from the mechanical linkage. Very costly to repair

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed machine- terrible company! I am not happy with my purchase - will spread the word around to discourage the purchase of LG.

Can this LG Front load washer model WM3270CW be laying down during moving from place to place (only for 20 mins). I need to move it and I do not have a truck.

Asked by: Annie228
It's recommended you always keep a washing machine in an upright position. Laying a washer on its side can cause the inner and outer tubs to bump against each other, which can loosen support pads or damage the suspension. Unfortunately, there's no way to determine what excessive bumps and vibrations the ENERGY STAR® LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3270CW will be subjected to even if only for 20 minutes, so we cannot advise you about laying it down at all and can only advise you to keep it upright to avoid damaging it...^IFV

Hw much hot water does this washer use for a max load?

Asked by: mikethejoyce
This unit automatically adjusts the water used to the size of load and has an option for Water Plus which adds additional water. Due to these features we do not have a spec for the amount used during a load. ^CP

How lpng is a wash cycle cor permanent press witnout extra added to the cycle ?

Asked by: Nicknamefor washer
Cycle time varies based on the load sensor, cycle selected and addition option available. It also varies based on the soil level and type of clothing placed in the unit, therefore there is no set amount of time per cycle. ^AC
