What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy!! I love the size and the turbo feature. Does a good job washing and wringing out a lot of water so clothes dry quickly in the dryer
Date published: 2019-12-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lifespend Just like any other LG life spent is ~5 years. It’s falling apart like “Chinese motorcycle“ after 5. Drain pumps and rear bearings are most common.this is second out of 3 sets that we had and first one broke in 5 years now second one is almost one.maybe I need to switch to different brand Otherwise it’s OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! Great washer I bought this washer and matching dryer in Aug of '15. I absolutely love them both. There are many options and features. Love the steam clean for pillows and down comforters. I have had zero problems with either appliance.

Does the washer not fill up with water fully? 

Asked by: Thais
Hello, it does not. Front load washers work by filling the bottom of the inner and outer tub with a small amount of water and using the rotation of the tub and gravity to move the clothes through the water. The rotation action is similar to the tumbling action found in a clothes dryer. The side paddles on the inside drum lift the clothes and move them in and out of the water. This provides the mechanical action (scrubbing) needed to remove soil from fabric. This type of mechanical wash action does not require that the clothes be surrounded by water at all times, which is why front load washers use so much less water than a standard top loader. And, of course, with less water you should use less detergent and one without lots of bubbles to prevent over-sudsing and residue left in clothes. ^AC

Washer is reading CL what does tht meN

Asked by: Mikeymelissa
The "CL" code that is showing on the display for your ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM8000HVA is indicating that the Child Lock has been activated. Pressing and holding the Rinse + Spin/Child Lock button for three seconds while a wash cycle is running activates this feature and a CL message and the remaining wash time are displayed, in turn, on the display panel of the washing machine. This feature locks the washing machine to prevent children or others from changing the cycle settings and the only button that will work is the power button. Even after the wash cycle ends and the machine turns off, this feature is still active and has to be turned off for you to need to use any other functions other than power On/Off. Pressing and holding the Rinse + Spin/Child Lock button for three seconds after turning the machine on deactivates it. You can find these instructions on page 28 of your owner's manual...^IFV
