On noise: it's not a jet engine, but the direct drive motor does have a noticeable hum whenever it's cycling, and the full-speed spin cycle isn't exactly museum-quiet. But if your laundry room has a door on it, it really shouldn't be a bother.

Overall performance has been excellent and the machine has proven very easy to use and configure for a wide range of loads and sizes. It also fit into a tight slot occupied by a previous top-loader, so it seems to be a good retrofit candidate in case you're upgrading old, less efficient equipment like we were.

This washer was highly rated before we went out and bought it and unfortunately it did not measure up to it's rating. It does not clean the clothes as well as the previously owned top loader. We suspect that this washer does not use enough water to do the job properly. So, we tried to use the setting with extra water without success. We now pre-wash everything which requires two kinds of detergent, a HE dry powder and HE liquid with semi-success. We now add bleach to all of our white's which does work somewhat. We've tried to reduce the amount of detergent and increase the amount of detergent. Heavily soiled, clothes just do not get clean. Another problem with this washer is the length of time it takes to complete a wash. It can take 4 times longer than the top loader we used to have. The problems do not end here. This washer was sold to us promising that it would be able to wash a queen size comforter. It does, but it often does not go into the spin cycle, especially if you add a few extra pieces of laundry to it. This machine is way too sensitive to unbalanced loads. It simply refuses to go into the spin cycle. It takes removing any additional clothes added and sometimes repeated unloading and re-arranging of the comforter to get it going. Think about this; you've got to take out and re-arrange a sloppy wet comforter just to get it to start the spin cycle. You might think this would be the end of the problem. NO!!!! To get it back into the spin cycle you have to reset the washing machine to a rinse cycle. Therefore it is wasting water just to get it back to spin dry the comforter. ----- We wish we had never bought this machine and kept the old "water wasting" top loader. We have not had any of the smelling problems though because we keep the door always wide open to air dry the washer after it has been used. Don't buy this washer and don't let anyone tell you it's your water. Our water is extremely soft and should work with any washer. I hope I was able to warn some people with this true and unbiased assessment.

Horrible Mold problems

By PQ Family

from San Diego, CA, USA

Comments about LG 3.6 Cu Ft White Front Load Washer:

We had this machine for 5 years. It worked fine but developed mold issues right off the bat. We left the door open, cleaned it monthly, drained the tubes, and all the other recommended tricks to prevent mold to no avail. We tried everything to get rid of the smell - bleach, afresh, vinegar, borax - all with limited effectiveness. The smell would clear for a day or two and then be right back. If anything was left in the washers for more than an hour it would develop a mildew smell. I had to boil and/or soak overnight in vinegar clothes to get rid of the mildew smell that pervaded some clothes. We recently replaced the front loader with a top loader. Very frustrating since the machine is not that old and otherwise runs fine. I really can not recommend a front-loading washing machine.

      Comments about LG 3.6 Cu Ft White Front Load Washer:

      Purchased product in May/June 2008. Generally ran well/ as anticipated until October 2013 (about 5 yrs 5 months), then the washer experienced a catastrophic failure of the drum/ drive connection. Technician indicated that the unit would cost more to repair than to buy new. Wash machines are supposed to last 15-25 years. This LG was my 2nd washer. My first wash machine lasted 15 years (it was a fairly cheap brand). I know family members that had wash machines for 20-30 years. Inadequate materials, design and/or build quality of products like this make an otherwise good product a terrible value and a great disappointment. I also do not like the bad smell the front loaded units create despite always using the HE detergent and following the maintenance instructions (this seems to be a problem with many front load units), and the front load without the pedestal is not an ergonomic design (bad on back). The little it saves in energy (<$30/yr) and water (<$0.10/load), is not worth the significantly higher cost. It may be a nice thing to do for the environment, but it is a horrible investment for a product lasting less than it's intended life. If it lasted 15-20 years, it may be a worthwhile investment/extra cost. I will not buy an LG washer or dryer and will be dissuaded from buying other LG products due to this experience.

          Comments about LG 3.6 Cu Ft White Front Load Washer:

          I believe the washer is 5-7 years old...it came with the house. It washes clothes very well. The mold issues described in the other review are problems with all front load washers so i dont really have a gripe about that. I am getting ready to replace this one due to a wobbling problem that is causing the drum to rub against the rubber gasket. My biggest gripe is that at least here in idaho, repairmen dont want to work on this brand and the repairman that i did find willing to look at it said that parts are very slow to arrive from this brand. The bleach compartment is also not working. Since it will be ~600 for repair, i will be replacing it but will go with a different brand due to the repair challenges this brand has. Loved how it cleaned though.

                      I was nervous about buying a front loading washer, particularly when I heard the average wash cycle takes an hour. However, I am very pleased with this washer. It does take longer than top loaders, but it cleans beautifully with just half as much detergent and a small amount of water. We have had our washer for over two years, and I am very pleased with it! My only negative comment is that the door hinge is very stiff and I cannot leave it open just a crack in order to dry out. The door always swings wide open if it's not completely shut, which causes inconvenience in our small laundry room because it gets in the way of the door, etc.

                              We've had this washer for a little over 2 years now and it still runs like a champ. It's easy to use and handles everything we throw in it. One feature I would've liked to have is a spin-only cycle for those big items that take a little more work to get all the water out. Excellent overall.

                                  We have had this washer about 2 years and it does a fantastic job. Our clothes are clean and this machine is much easier on the fabrics, they stay "newer" looking longer. We also noticed a change in our water bill, it saved us quite a bit in usage. Life is Good with this product!!!

                                  I was very excited to receive this washer as a "gift" from my husband. Though it washes well and is rather easy to use I am not sure I would buy another. As the mother of young children I often find myself busy when the washer has finished it's cycle. Clothing seems to "sour" very quickly. (within an hour or so) Also, though clearly cautioned in the Owner's Manual, leaving the washer door open to allow for drying is an "open" invitation to a curious child.
