What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Poor Customer Service We purchased this washer 4 years ago, and had been very happy with it until a week ago, Friday, November 1, 2019. I was washing a 1 single mattress pad, which filled the tub to 1/3 of the basket. I was in the room next to the laundry room, and heard the Spin Cycle start. I then hear an Extremely loud Crash, Boom, Bang. I went to laundry room, the washer had "walked" all the way out to in front of where it normally is, hit the counter top of the laundry sink, (left side of washer very bent), hit the dryer (right side of washer very bent) dryer left side bent from washer hitting it, hole in dry wall from washer hitting dryer, and pushing dryer into wall. The control panel on washer is laying on top of washer lid. There is water all over the walls. The Bleach Dispenser has been thrown into hallway. The inside tub of washer has broken completely apart from the washing machine, and there are tiny pieces of plastic everywhere from the plastic washing tub. I call Customer Information Center that day, Friday, Nov. 1, explain what happened. They refer me to several local Repair companies in my area. I called the referred LG repair company, explained what had happened, and they told me that the machine was not fixable, and a repair call would be a waste of money. The repair company told me to call LG Customer Information Center (CIC) back again. I call CIC back and they told me that someone would call me back in 24 to 48 hours. Monday morning, I had not heard anything from LG, and called again. They told me the weekend days do not count in the 24 to 48 hour time frame. I explained that I needed to get this resolved, and the person put me in touch with her supervisor, Mark. He sent me an e-mail, with a case number, and told me to take pictures and attach them to the e-mail and case number, along with pictures of proof of purchase. Mark said that he would call me back Monday afternoon, which he did not! Wednesday morning, I call CIC again, explain the situation, was put on hold for 20 minutes while Allyson reviewed the case. She then refers me to a Product Liability person, Blake, who would address the hole in the wall. I told her that the hole, was not the big issue, it is the demolished washer and dryer that need to be replaced. She said that this person could do all of that. I called the Product Liability person, and he said no, he would only handle the hole in the wall, and if it was less than $500, he would not advise doing this through his department. He told me that Executive Services would handle this, and that they would call me in 24 to 48 hours. I still have not heard anything. I don't know where to go from here. I feel that I have been going in circles for the last week, getting nowhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean clothes! I have been disappointed in this washer since we purchased it. It has all the features we wanted and came recommended by a family member, however it does not get our clothes clean. It also leaves residue on items after washing even with regular use of the tub clean feature. I have tried several different settings and it doesn't seem to make a difference with the cleanliness of the clothing. I love not having an agitator but I did not think I would have to give up my clothes being clean as a result.

How do I get the washer to fill up more water with heavy loads?

Asked by: heidler
Use the Water Plus option to add extra water to wash cycles for improved stain treatment when washing large or bulky items. Press and hold the Extra Rinse button for 3 seconds to activate the Water Plus option.

Having the same problem numerous other people have with rust around the dispenser. Not only does it look bad, it is ruining linens & clothing with rust stains that do not wash out. Is there a solution to this problem or do I have to replace the washer.

Does the flexible connecter that drains the water prevent fuzzies and such because im worried its draining all the dirty water including the excess fuzzies into my main water pump possibly damaging it?

Asked by: RaoulD
Just like any other washing machine, anything that comes off of the clothing will be flushed out through the drain hose. ^AC

If you change the soil level to high,does the back and forth motion of the impeller/agitator become more forcefully or faster when washing?

Asked by: Jvvv
As described on page 22 of your owner's manual for the Energy Star Qualified LG 4.9 cu.ft. MEGA Capacity High Efficiency Top Load Washer, Model # WT5270CW, "Each cycle has default settings that are selected automatically. You may also customize these settings using the cycle modifier buttons. Press the button for the desired modifier until the indocator light for the desired setting is lit. The washer automatically adjusts the water level for the type and size of your wash load for the best results and maximum efficiency." Then under SOIL LEVEL on the same page, it explains that "Adjusting the soil level setting will modify the cycle times and/or wash." NOTE adds that "This feature needs more time for heavily soiled loads or less time for lightly soiled loads" The reason for needing more time is because the "HEAVY" Soil Level takes time to add more water. It also modifies the wash action aggressive wash action.. ^AC
