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.

Ok product, but will not buy again

By Ann

from CT

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.

                  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.
