What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started out a great washer After reading the reviews I see that I'm not the only one having problems. I've had q service man here 2Xs and it worked for a few months and is back to the same problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk...Throw Uneven load codes This washer has thrown UE codes almost since the day I bought it. LG will not fix the machine at their expense. It literally takes hours to do one load of laundry. Shame on LG for not standing by their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RUST and ongoing UE BALANCING issues This machine was purchased in 2013 and we have had issues with UE balance issues from the beginning. The machine takes multiple re-balancing attempts in order to finish a load and by the time it finishes the clothes no longer smell clean since they have been rinsed so many times. In addition, rust began developing around the bleach dispenser after just a few years and has progressively gotten worse, even though I am careful not to overfill or splash bleach whenever I use it (which isn't often). In addition, the hinge on the washer became loose after the first year and will not stay open so I have to load my machine and fill dispensers while holding the lid open with my forehead or it will fall down. These are obviously manufacturer defects with this appliance, as the multiple complaints posted online indicate, (a quick google search will prove that) and yet LG is refusing to deal with these issues and instead blames the customer & passes on the repair costs on to us. I will never purchase an LG appliance again! We also had LG televisions which have had to be replaced after 2 years for black screens, sound issues, etc but were not covered under warranty. This is also a common occurrence with LG televisions and yet the company does nothing. Very disappointed in the poor quality and lack of professionalism with LG.

Rust around the bleach cup on a WT4870CW Washing Machine

Does anyone know if this is an issue with this model? I purchased one yesterday and then discovered that there were more than a few complaints about this problem happening with other similar LG models. Apparently after about a year and a half people start to see rust around the bleach and detergent intakes. Is this an issue with this particular model and if so is it covered under any recall or extended warranty?
Asked by: Lizzie
I have the same problem. My washer is rusted really bad around the bleach cup ... I have chuncks of rusted metal falling into my laundry during wash cycle. I have never seen anything like this. Never will buy another LG anything. After 3 years I have to purchase another washing machine. This is UNFAIR!

Can you use tide pods in the WT4870C?

Asked by: Bmpb2018
Make sure to use HE (High Efficiency) detergent for top loading washing machines. HE detergents dissolve more efficiently and produce fewer suds to ensure efficient washing and rinsing. Use the correct amount of detergent as indicated on the label of the detergent packaging. HE pods can be used with this washing machine. ^CP

My water will not turn off and floods if I try and run a load. My brother said it is probably the cold water inlet valve. Can you please advise how I order this part?
