I use this machine daily and wash everything from oversized towels used in the dog's bed to lacy camisoles. It is easy to use, and the load-size sensor makes sure you don't use too much detergent or softener. The clothes are spun so dry that loads that use to take 40-45 minutes now take about 20 minutes. I've read reviews that complain about having to dry the window and rubber gasket off when you've finished using it, but this process only takes about a minute and a half. It seems like a reasonable price to pay to avoid having mold forming on the gasket. I NEVER enjoyed doing laundry before, but this machine makes it kind of fun!

Frequent mildew smell

I have had clothes coming out with a strong mildew smell from early on. Like an earlier reviewer, running a bleach cycle only takes care of the smell for 2 loads at most. I would definitely not recommend this washer and am hesitant to buy a front-load washer again in the future.

after 5 years the Control panel will break
from Atlanta, GA, USA
Comments about LG WM2301HW 4.2 Cu. Ft. White Front Load Washer:
I've owned this set for 5 years, and everything was fine and dandy with it until my wife tells me that the panel won't light up, and nothing happens when you press the power button. So after i fiddled with the power cable and made sure that I hadn't blown a fuse, I waited to see if the washer was going to just "Magically" start up again, because I had done so once. Well.. I'm sad to say that it didn't and now we're waiting for a local repairman to fix the electrical panel. With our fingers crossed, we're hoping that it happens soon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Warranty = Life Expectancy
This washer performed as it should the first year. We had a problem within that 2nd year and now during our fourth year where the cost of both service calls exceed the actual cost of the washer. Support will do nothing for us include investigate what might be the problem and gave us the "sorry, it's out of warranty" song and dance. Between the performance of this product and now overall customer service of LG, there is not a chance will purchase anything from LG in the future.

I've had this washing machine for about 4 years. I've taken extreme care to make sure that my washing machine is kept in optimal condition. The only advice I can give you should you buy this product is to be sure to buy the extended warranty, because you're going to need it. First, the part in the back of the tub that has interlocking teeth to spin the tub was completely ground down to the point where the tub wouldn't spin. After that part was replaced, we had to replace the water pump, and now my front electronic panel will have to be replaced. There was another 2 service calls in there somewhere, but I can't remember what parts they were for. In total, in the last 4 years, I've had to call the repairmen out to my house 5 times, and they can't come out when you actually need them to, they come out "as soon as they can", which is anywhere from 4-14 days later, and God help you if they don't have the part on hand that is needed, because then you're looking at possibly another week or so until your unit is actually repaired. These repairmen, however, are kind enough to leave you with a receipt showing you how much you would've spent if you hadn't bought the extended warranty. With just the ones I can remember, it's been over 900.00. I'm never buying an appliance from LG again. Ever.
I love this washer. Have it with stackable dryer. Have had several years. Quiet. Cleans well. Had a problem requiring a reset. Did it with help over the phone, easy -peasy. A happy fan
Excellent for DIRTY clothes!
from Bowling Green, OH
I wondered how well a front loader would clean jeans with caked on, dried dirt. I garden and my son landscapes and we get DIRTY. This washer CLEANS 6 pairs of really dirty jeans perfectly. It is amazing! In general, the spin cycle is so good it has cut my drying time in at least half -- instead of 70 minutes for that load of jeans, it takes only 35. Yes, the wash cycle takes longer but I make up for it with dramatically decreased dry time.
Love this machine. The selections of cycles is unbelievable. Clothes come out clean and it doesn't take much detergent.
from Pueblo, CO
Had this for over a year, no problems. Spin cycle can sometims vibrate, but not a big deal.
Love it, great product. Wish I would have gotten with the door facing the other direction.
from Ault, CO
I was worried when I read reviews about smells and not getting clothes clean. I have two kids and it's hard enough keeping up with the laundry without having to redo any of it. It holds so much laundry and everything I've washed comes out clean. I thought the cost of HE detergent might be a problem as well, but you use so little the big jugs last for months! No smell at all so far for me (I've had it about a year), but I do at least one load of laundry a day. When not in use I do leave the door open as per the user guide. I've washed mud, grease, food it all comes out clean. Love it does not use so much water and spins so dry. Washing cycles seem longer, but clothes dry faster so did not add to my laundry time. Also love it does not use so much water, I don't feel bad if I only do half a load since the water level is so minimal. Love the delayed wash as well, can set it before bed and it is done and ready to go in the dryer in the morning with out sitting wet and getting musty.
I've read all the rewiews and can't add a thing, it's one great machine.
