All I can say is that this LG washer is great! It's a no frills washer if you do your research. This model has all the added features you could want for your money. It took us months of searching for the right washer, we looked at several of the top brands and compared them all. This LG model always was on top and the reviews were great, and now we know why. It's super quiet, economical, easy to use, and you can have custom settings too. Build quality is top notch, stainless steel tub, not a mix of plastic and stainless like other competitors charging more $$$. Also, the warranty on this model is awesome, just cannot beat it. Most definitely a best buy, you cannot go wrong with this purchase. Since getting ours, we just love this machine!

1. Bought this machine as it was touted as being very reliable and saved on water 2. The first time I had issues was within a month after the original purchase. It did not load balance correctly and it did not put sufficient water in the machine to wash the clothes properly. Clothing was coming out of the machine with the soap scum still in the clothes. Yes I did use the recommended detergent. At times the clothes were coming out dry in spots that water had never reached. I was advised by the Tech not to put small loads into the machine, however that is not always possible. When did the consumer have to start accommodating the washing machine, which is suppose to be accommodating me. There are times when light weight loads are necessary, such as with a large load of lingerie which does not weigh very much. 3. We were then away for 8 months as this is our winter home. The machine was run through a cycle every 2 weeks by our house sitters to keep everything running, and to prevent drying out of the hoses etc. 4. When we got back to Arizona, I did 4 loads and then the machine “locked could not be opened and stopped with a load of wet clothes in the machine. It has now been over 2 weeks and it is still not working. We have had 2 repair people out, and the parts the original person brought did not fix the problem. I was told by the second repair person that it could be another 10 days - 2 weeks before this next part is delivered and installed. 6. Before my year warranty is expired, I want my money back. 7. It is my opinion that the electronics that are being put into these machines are too complicated and easily broken. It takes too long to deliver replacement parts. We the consumers are paying a price and while it may have started out as a reasonably priced washer the ROI for LG is going down continually.......... as is my satisfaction with LG.

Great Washing Machine

By mattman1

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Features/Settings
  • Performance
  • Quality
  • style/design

Cons

    Best Uses

      I have owned this washing machine for three months and it has performed above my expectations. The reviews I had seen prior to my purchase were good, but I have seen first hand the excellent quality that LG has to offer. This washer is quiet, easy to operate, washes a large load of laundry and gets the clothes clean. My prior washing machines with the center agitator do not even compare to this machine. If you purchase this washing machine, I would advise you to follow the instruction manual for truly outstanding results. The next appliance I purchase will definitely be an LG!

      Poor Results / Wrinkled and full of Lint

      By Max3456

      from Spring, TX, USA

      Machine leaves clothes wrinkled and full of lint. We have had this unit for about two weeks and not one garment came out as we wanted. We have tried all cycles.10 year old washer did a much better job. We want to return this expensive machine.

        Best Uses

          Only had this machine for a few weeks and it is performing very well. Much quieter than our previous washer. Has a large tub and will handle big loads, although short people have a hard time reaching the bottom of the tub. Cleanliness appears to be good for all loads. Large and heavy loads have a tendency to get out of balance easily, must stop and rearrange the load.

          Getting used to it

            Best Uses

              I have to say I like the washer, it cleans, and spins the clothes so nice, but need to take them out when they are done, or they are wrinkled. It takes a lot longer to wash the clothes than my old washer. Over all the washer does a great job, and has many settings and plays a cute tune when done. I am getting used to it, and like it more each day.

                I use it daily and it is so easy to get used to. It is a large capacity but still handles the delicate items I wash.

                  Best Uses

                    My new washer has been such a blessing. With a family of 4, I only have to do 2-3 loads a week as compared to the 4-6 I was doing with the old washer. It spins all the water out so if I want to hang the clothes instead of using the dryer, they dry very quickly.

                            I am very happy with the quality of this washing machine. I had a front load washer prior to this one and it was very loud, this washing machine is very quiet and so easy to use.

                                This is much better than my last top loader. It cleans beautifully with very little noise or water, (which is critical when you're being rationed)! The only con is when it's out of balance it tries to fix it itself, adding quite a bit of time to the cycle.

                                I love my new washing machine - It's quiet, cleans excellent. My husband works outside and we wash a lot of insulated coveralls, and bulky clothing - perfect.
