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!

Before purchasing this washer we bought an LG dryer, which we love. Based on our experience with other LG products and many positive reviews of this washer, we went with this one. What a disappointment it has been. The first couple of times the UE signal came on, I figured it was my fault. I simply redistributed the clothes and pushed start again. Well, after dozens of times doing this, too many hours wasted waiting on a single load of laundry, countless gallons of water wasted as the machine tries to re-balance itself and numerous articles of clothing destroyed during the never ending cycles...I can say that I DESPISE this machine and am completely turned off from LG products. I have four children and do not have the time or resources for the nonsense that this machine consumes. A load that should take an hour can take up to a whole day as the machine continues to add more minutes and water repeatedly and then shuts itself down. Annoying does not begin to describe this machine. Clothes that have gone in on the delicate cycle have come out misshapen and stretched out and still soaking wet. What is the point of the cycle? The tub clean cycle is a joke. It takes all day because the machine continues to say it is unbalanced. What could possibly be unbalanced- there aren't even clothes in it during the tub clean cycle!!! Yet it continues to refill with water and then shut down as the UE code comes on over and over. By no means is it energy saving with the amount of time and water it spends on a single load. And the bleach cup? I have NEVER ruined clothes with bleach until I had this washer. I don't know if the cup doesn't empty completely or if it doesn't run the bleach through all of the way elsewhere in the machine but it is pretty much guaranteed that the next load will also have bleach in it whether intended or not. After numerous articles of clothing coming out with bleach spots during a cycle that I didn't add bleach to, I have had to stop using bleach. That is ridiculous in a household full of active kids. As a parent, I have taught my children to not use the word "hate" as it is often too strong to express how one truly feels beyond the moment of anger, but I will say that after months of frustration, irritation, and yes, anger- I HATE THIS MACHINE. I wouldn't recommend it at all. It was not inexpensive and for the price and LG name I certainly expected a better quality product. Or at least one that functioned properly without costing me time and money. We are done with LG.

Ue all the time

By 

from Jackson, MO, USA

My washer is barely 2 years old and I can not wash clothes any more. I have to pay to get it fix because I was not offered an extended warranty. I can not finish a load bc of the ue. My washer is level, I manually move clothes around like 15 times and finally give up and ring my clothes out by hand just to put them in the dryer. Not happy with it at all. The balance sensor went out. Now I guess I need to see how much it's going to cost me for someone 2 hours away can come and check and hopefully fix my washer without costing me an arm and a leg

materials are VERY poor quality

    Best Uses

      I have had this washer for 1.5 years. The bleach dispenser has already rusted out, so I had it sanded and resealed and 2 months later, it is starting to show signs of rust again. NOW, the center "cap" on the base of the basin has peeled off its faux steel cap. It literally peeled off like plastic foil. The machine, it self, washes fine, but the materials used is terrible. This machine should not be in such poor quality. I wish I could post the pictures. I'm very disappointed in this product!

            Best Uses

              I purchased this machine just over a year ago and for about nine months it was FABULOUS!!! Then something went wrong. I cannot complete a load without continuing to stop and redistribute the clothes over and over and over because the UE warning signal continues to illuminate. Sometimes I've spent 30 minutes a load just trying to complete a cycle. There have even been times I've just drained the tub and waited until later to deal with the washing issues. I've even tried it with just water and nothing inside the tub and still get the warning. I've had no problems with the companion dryer but wish I had not purchased this expensive washing machine.

                    Best Uses

                      This washer had a different type of drum set up. It uses very little water and the washing action is different. Wish it had a clear lid so we could see the water level and washing action. The lid locks, so you cannot just lift it to see the levels and washing action. Because it uses less water, it may take around 1.5 hours to wash a load when the old style washers would do it in 35 mins. The clothes are clean and well spun out for the dryer. Sometimes you almost don't need a dryer. It tells you not to wash items that are water proof or repellant. So shower curtains and the like are not supposed to be washed. We're still trying to figure out the setting and when to try to activate them. Seems changes cannot be made once started unless you stop and drain everything and start over. Overall, considering the time it takes to wash, it seems to be the new thing in energy efficiency.

                      Worst washer i have ever bought

                      By 

                      from Bronte, TX 76933, USA

                      I bought this washer a year ago and it has messed up twice. I feel like buying this washer was a waste if money. I have a family of 6 and really need a good working washer. One of the 4 technicians that came to fix my washer said you can only wash large loads aad there is a certain way to put clothes in the washer. This washer also goes off balance very easy. One technician also told me since i ro not have a concrete foundation my washer would keep messing up. I dont have $800 just laying around to just throw out the window. Im truely in tears. Washer has a 10 year direct drive motor warranty so problem is covered by warranty but yiu have to pay for extended warranty to cover the cost for technician to come out to diagnose then wait a month after diagnosed the replace part. So waiting about 2 months for washer to work and paying more money for warranty is not what i have time or money for. I do not recommend anyone to waste money on this product.

                                  I just replaced my washer after 15 years. I wasn't sure what was out there and was not familiar with the current technology used for washers. I read reviews and checked with other friends who had this type of washer and they said they loved it. After, I have had it for about a month so far its lived up to its reputation. It has gotten my clothes cleaner than my old washer and is gentle on my clothes. I have enjoyed having this washer and hope it will last for a long time.
