Rated 3 out of 5 by from We have had this washer for 2 years. For the past year we have noticed it smells musty- we have cleaned out the filter several times. Today I pulled the rubber door seal forward and found lots of gunk and mold. I have wiped it in the past and we keep the door on the washer open to prevent this. Super hard to clean, I’m not sure what I am going to do now!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Washer Hose with Bellow tears and leaks The washer Hose with Bellow tears and leaks is a common problem with this machine and other LG front loaders. This machine had started to leak soon after receiving this machine. Have had to replace this hose and from what I have read, this has been a long standing problem with LG front loader washing machines. You would think by now they would have found a better system. I wouldn't waste your time with LG and look else where for a washing machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wash and Wear I'm giving this product a three because I do like the options and the ease of use. However, it's sad that after only 2 years, the letters literally smeared away on touch from around the selection dial. Read this might be from 1) harsh chemicals to clean ... nope, 2) spilled laundry detergent..seriously, this is a washing machine!!!! I expected more from the LG Brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent performance I owned a more basic version of an LG front loader, they both seem to clean the clothes the same way. It work great but the extra feature are unnecessary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very, Very loud spin cycle The spin cycle is extremely loud. The tub has a lot of forward and aft movement, causing it to strike the washer and create a sound that resembles someone hitting a sledgehammer in my laundry room. It is balanced. There has to be something wrong internally. It is terrible. I can't run it with guests over or after the kids go to bed. Terrible.

As advised on page 41 of your owner's manual for the LG 4.5 cu. ft.

CAUTION Cleaning the door seal with an undiluted solution may cause malfunction of the door seal and washing machine parts." If you still would rather have the door seals replaced, you will need to contact an LG Authorized Repair Service Center to inquire if they can give you an estimate for what it would cost to replace the door seal.

How do you recommend washing gym shoes?

Asked by: Regan
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. It is recommended not to wash shoes, as waterproof items should not be added to a cycle. Waterproof items, such as the soles of the shoes, can cause abnormal vibrations which can cause damage to the tub. If shoes must be washed, it is recommended to wash them along with other items in order to balance the load.
