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.

LG Washing Machine

By Laundry Queen

from Undisclosed

Comments about LG 4.0 Cu Ft White Rear Control Washer:

I liked the machine when we first got it. I like the fact you can hit pause and put one more item in quickly. I also like the controls on top rather than on the front. The things I don't like are the fact you can't select the temperature you wish to use without pushing more buttons and that its noisy (mostly during the spin cycle - but its noiser than my last machine) and that if you have soiled items you either need to spray them or put them on the long cycle (1 1/2 hours!) or they won't come clean. My husband (landscaper - just dirt no grimy stuff) thinks his clothes are never clean so I use alot of spray or have to be patient and wait 1.5 hours for the long cycle. I think there could be less buttons and easier to use. I'm not sure for the money (researched this product) I really feel like I got my money's worth.

          This is an excellent washing machine. It is very quiet. It vibrates on the spin cycle, but all front loaders do too. I put some pads under the feet that are designed to reduce the vibration on the floor. They worked. You cannot feel the vibration now.

              My Wife is a clean freak, she can't stand to have dirty clothes in the hamper. She will wash about 3 loads per day for our family of four. Bought this unit about 2 years ago, not one minute of trouble have we had with it. It cleans the clothes and saves a ton on the water and the light bill. She loves the features also. I always have to buy heavy duty appliances for her, she killed a cheap vacuum cleaner in 3 months. So thank you LG for making one tough washer!

                  I have owned my front loader from LG for about 6 months and I absolutely love it! It is easy to use, quiet, cleans well, and even chirps a little song at the end of the cycle. And I like the controls on a control panel at the top/back of the washer and not on the front like most front loaders. No bending down to read dials; they are easily seen especially for someone like me who wears trifoculs. If I can't look at what I need to see straight on, I'm looking through the wrong lens thus getting a blurry view. Not with this washer. This is a great washer for me.

                        I like the washer very much. My clothes are much cleaner than with my older top load. I haven't felt the need to do a second rinse, which I frequently did with my top load- (maybe because the dirty water doesn't empty through the clothes). The clothes not only come out cleaner but aren't as wet, so it takes less time to dry. I am also using much less water, and in California that's a must The cycles are longer than I'm used to, especially the clean tub cycle which seems to go on forever. The machine shakes a bit more than I like when it spins. I have not had the odor problems I have read about, but I have followed the recommendations about cleaning and air drying. I also don't leave wet clothes in the washer. Over all, I am very happy with this washer.

                            I love this washer. My clothes come out cleaner than before even when I put in a full load of towels. My hand washables come out very well. I trust it to wash anything washable. Love that it is so quiet and the cute 'song' when a load is finished.

                                This machine has saved me so much time and so much money. I love the speed wash, there is no need for the washer to run for almost an hour. It saves so much electric. I love the fast wash. You don't have to wonder how much water to use as it does it for you. I would not have another washer. I also have the dryer with it. I love it also. Clothes are always nice and fresh. With all the settings, it makes it easy to dry them and not over use the dryer.

                                  This machine works great, I'm very pleased with it, we have had it over a year now. Uses little water, works great for cloth diapers. I was unaware however, although it uses less energy and water, each cycle is almost double in length as a standard washer cycle. Most cycles are 55-58 minutes long which took some getting used to.
