Bought the LG because we need to conserve water....and it does save water...we can do morre loads than ever before. Bought this particular model because it didn't require a separate stand (that costs extra). The controls are easy to use and the clothes come out pretty clean. The only negative is the odor that emanates from the washer after use. Too late I found out it is a COMMON problem with front loaders.. have tried to follow LG suggestions by using Whirlout, but only minor improvement. YOU MUST dry the gasket after every use, and leave the door open...this looks sloppy, but we have no choice.

Have had this washer for a month, and already had a tech out. The washer vibrates EXCESSIVELY on the rinse and spin cycles. Have to stop it and adjust the load EVERY time. This is not a quiet machine with less vibration as advertised, and noted ON the washer. Very disappointed with this purchase. Wish I could get our money back. Old machine (non HE) was better than this one.

      Comments about LG 4.0 Cu Ft White Rear Control Washer:

      My washer is four years old now and has never needed repairs of any kind. It cleans our clothes very well and has a pretty large capacity. I did have an issue with it draining properly until I cleaned the manual filter. It was a rather messy situation because it is near the floor and when I went to remove the filter, backed up water came pouring out and had to be mopped up. Now I clean it regularly and the water is less of an issue. It still gets the floor wet but a towel is all I need to clean it up. Now it works perfect. Great washer.

          Comments about LG 4.0 Cu Ft White Rear Control Washer:

          Had lots of issues with the control panel in the first year, took about 3 panels to get it to work consistently. Musty smell I could not get rid off despite proper care. By the time it quit when you just need to finish the laundry, the cost of repair and speed of service were more than a new washer. The parts are expensive and take a while to come... So, on to a new washer, and it is not LG

                  Have had this machine for a few years, and it gets a strong musty smell. To clean it, you are supposed to bleach it in a Tub Clean cycle. Problem now is that the smell is getting even stronger and more frequent. The bleach tub clean isn't working. Not sure what to do.

                      The LG washing machine rusted out in 3 1/2 years. The syder shaft attached to the drum and motor rusted out. I contacted LG to place a warranty claim and they refused to honor it even though they claim to have a 7 warranty on the various components of the drum. Why would they make the drum out of stainless steel and the bracket that attaches it to the motor out of an inferior material? Very disappointed with LG and will probably be the last LG product I buy.

                          This was an expensive machine and I don't think it's done a particularly good job of cleaning. It's just my wife and I, no filthy uniforms or anything. At 34 months age, the machine won't spin, and parts manuals are not available online. If this is motor-related, the parts may be under warranty, but the LG website doesn't recognize the model number to schedule service.

                                      I am pleased with this dryer. it gets clothes dry and has a lot of features and settings. It is very easy to use and good looking. I like the led display and beeping sound to let you know when the cycle is done. What more can i say, it is a good product, I just wish the set came with free pedestals for the price i paid. and buying them separate is quite expensive. I may just make my own out of wood with drawers and paint them white. Overall a quality product though. L.G. feel free to send me some pedestals for taking the time to write this positive review! I buy a lot of your products. Washer/Dryer, Blue Ray Player, and an Optimus Q Cell Phone to name a few. I would really love to buy a large screen HDTV, but I am disabled and short on money. Thanks L.G.! Sincerely, DG
