What people are saying
Rated 2 out of 5 by from leaks water occasionally The top load system leaks water on floor in front periodically. No appliance repair person has yet been able to remedy the problem. Very disturbing to say the least. When a repair person comes the wash machine doesn't leak. Like a funny sound in your car that goes away when you go to the dealership!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a Great Dryer for the Price This LG Dryer has turned out to have been a great purchase and worth all the purchase price/monies we invested in it and the dryer. The Dryer is very energy efficient that it helped lower both our gasr and electric bills each month, so in the long run it is paying for itself over our old washing machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good but doesn't work properly. We purchased this washer 22 months ago. It worked fine for the first 14 months. Then we started receiving an IE code. We had a service technician come and replace the sensor which we had to pay for. Since then we have had the IE code repeatedly. We have cleaned the filter repeatedly. The only way we can wash successfully is to use speed wash. This is not acceptable. We won't be buying LG again.

Which cycle gets the bleach to dispense? I’ve tried them all and the bleach is still in the dispenser. 

Asked by: Ccjones
Hello, when you pour the liquid bleach into the designated compartment (separate from the detergent and fabric softener), you should not be able to see the bleach as it travels down to the bottom of the drum and holds into a compartment where it is diluted and dispensed. If you do not think it is dispensing, please give us a call at 1-800-243-0000 so we can troubleshoot. ^AC

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

WHY am I getting the LE code 13 months after owning this machine. There is no foreign object stuck as I have seen you suggest. How convenient I am just one month past my warranty. 

Asked by: AllisonRd
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The LE Error Code, for a washing machine, indicates that the Wash Tub is not rotating properly. This could potentially be caused by the machine being overloaded. Troubleshooting steps can be located in the owner’s manual.

Why won't my washer start after pushing the play button? I have to play between the play/pause button and the power button in order for it to start. After loading and adding detergent and softner I push play, it locks and does nothing.

How do you set the soak cycle

Asked by: PuzLed
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Information about this feature can be found in your owner’s manual on page 24. After selecting a cycle, press the SPECIAL USE button to select additional features for your load. The SOAK option provides a 30 minute presoak prior to the start of the selected cycle. Use the SOAK option to presoak garments to help remove difficult spots or stains on fabrics. At the end of the presoak time, the selected cycle will begin with the same water used for the soak.

Is there any routine upkeep or need to drain water every so often like on my old front loader 

Asked by: Tim86
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. This top-load washing machine does not have an external drain port like the front of the front-load washer. Standard maintenance includes running the TUB CLEAN CYCLE, which should be performed at least once per month. Additional information on this matter can be found on pages 27-29 of the owner’s manual.
