What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This appliance is great self diagnosing We have had this washer for about 8 yrs and have not had trouble with it until now. Called to get it fixed and it was relatively easy to schedule and get it repaired. The technician was very informative about the repairs, very knowledgeable and was done in no time

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS WASHING MACHINE So disappointed in LG products. Since owning this washer, we've had to have the motor rebuilt because it wasn't washing properly and our clothes smelled terrible. Now, the cheap metal all around the bleach cup has completed rusted and the rust keeps growing even though I stopped using the bleach cup years ago. Eventually, it will start to ruin our whites (per others experiences). I called LG and got the runaround. Because my washer is out of warranty, they refuse to do anything. Even though they had a class action lawsuit regarding this and have tons of customers w/ the same issue. I was told a manager would contact me regarding my issue and, of course, never heard from anyone. I also had issues with an LG refrigerator I purchased. These will be THE LAST LG products I will ever own. Crappy quality and terrible customer service.

Recently, our washing machine has been stopping with 12 minutes remaining, most often on the Bright Whites setting when doing towels. We have to unplug to "reset" then run a rinse and spin cycle to finish.

Shows OE  signal will not drain 

Asked by: Lillie
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The OE error code is configured to advise that the washer is draining slowly, or not at all. Possible causes for this symptom can be that the drain hose is bent, pinched or clogged. If checking this drain does not resolve the matter, then the machine may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

WHAT IS A CODE UE

Asked by: armen
Code "UE" on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.7 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Top Load Washer with WaveForce™, Model # WT5170HV is an indicator that informs you that the washer has an unbalanced load. Code 'uE" indicates that it is attempting to balance your load. During this time, the washer will fill with water in order to agitate and separate the items, then drain and try to spin again. The "uE" code will alternate with the time display. After three attempts to balance your load, the "uE" code will change to "UE", meaning that the washer was unable to rebalance the load and requires your assistance. Check to make sure that the washer is properly leveled as that can also cause the "UE" code. If you still have a copy of your owner's manual, you will find a list on page 30 with explanations of the codes that may appear on your display that you can refer to should they show...^IFV

Our washer appears to have no power. Power at the plug. Start button makes a noise but no lights or response from the board  washer is full and door is locked. Can you help?

Asked by: Jim66
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is recommended to unplug the washer for about 5 minutes before reconnecting the power to it, and testing the controls. If the unit remains locked, and does not drain, then the machine may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
