What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 175 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by manual difficult...clothes not as clean many problems is load balancing...clothes not as clean as agitator models...owners manual is difficult to understand....would not reccommend August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good machine undercut by extended warantee pitches Excellent performance for the few months we've owned it. Fingers crossed after many offers of extended service (by store and manufacturer). Make it sound like they aren't confident it's going to last very long. If it doesn't last 2 years like they're implying, I doubt I'd go back to LG. August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product This washer is quiet, so efficient, love the water savings, only uses the amount of water necessary. Spins so fast that the clothes are almost dry enough to wear....which saves on dryer usage. August 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washer This is the first LG product (along with the dryer) that we have purchased. It was a little strange at first not having an agitator and it uses so little water! I love it. Our clothes come out clean and it spins such that the clothes are barely damp when they come out! Easy to use, quiet, and efficient. Make sure you pay attention to the directions for centering the drum. My husband used a level to double check the centering. The machine works great and we are very pleased with it. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible! I LOVE this washer and cannot say enough great things about it. The capacity is truly outstanding, I can fit so many clothes into the washer and they still come out clean! (You can fit MULTIPLE pairs of jeans in here and still have room for other items!) The front panel control really is user friendly and you can customize everything from spin speed to water temperature. Another little thing I liked was the signal that tells you the washer is done doing it's job... it's a little jingle and it's a lot better than the normal beeping you get from other washing machines. You can make it to where it's loud or not so loud too. I would recommend this product to EVERYONE and I have already recommended it to a few friends. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Machine Easy to use and great value. The top loader with clear glasss is a great feature. It allows you to leave it open to dry out, and is super easy to use. The controls are in a great location and gives lots of options. Excellent replacement for the money. I bought the ext. warranty for 5 years just in case! July 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Can't possibly wash clothes in 2 inches of water.. Design, controls, features, size/footprint are all awesome with this unit... However, when it comes to washing clothes, it is far from awesome. There are many occasions where I put 15+ garments in for a wash only to come back to see the thing trying to wash them in 2-3 inches of water? This happens even when I use the water plus option... Furthermore, when this happens, it also only uses 2-3 inches of water for the rinse cycle... On top of that, the 2-3 inches of water in the bottom is not even warm when it's on the warm wash setting!!! So, I find myself having to pause the cycle so I can add 1.5-2 buckets of warm water to the wash cycle as well as 1.5-2 buckets of cold water to the rinse cycle in order to actually get this thing to clean my clothes. Granted, this only happens 1/2 of the time. The other half of the time it works great and uses enough water for wash/rinse. I'm either going to take it back and exchange it for an "old school" agitator top loader or call LG directly to have someone come and take a look at it... Not sure yet... July 29, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Was off to a bad start.... After two weeks of having my new washer, I had to call and get maintenance on it because i was getting an error code. Well they came out and ordered a new motor, but when they came back they found out it wasn't the motor at all and blamed the "computer panel". So now I have my second one and hopefully after time I will come to love it. July 24, 2014

Answer: 
I had to purchase hoses separately from the Washer. I got new hoses for two reasons: 1) the age of the old hoses and 2) new hoses were required by Best Buy to install my new Washer in my home

As per what the manual is saying it does not seem to include the hot and cold water hoses, but both the power cord and drain hose are already attached.

Answer: 
Yes. We have mostly king size bedding and it washes them all easily. There is no upright agitator, so it has a lot more capacity that traditional washers with the same specs.

Answer: 
It depends on the volume of the blanket. The capacity of a 3.6 cu.ft. drum may be enough for some king size items, however the larger the drum the better it is for those extra large items.

Answer: 
The machine has a "load sensor" that determines the size of the load, along with the wash options u choose, which affects & determines the amount of water used, but I can say it's very water efficient, way less than my old washer that had an agitator in it.

Answer: 
This model has a 3.7 WF (water factor = number of gallons needed for each cubic foot of laundry)
There is no min/max number of gallons available. It mostly depends on the volume of clothes being washed per load.
