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.

Best Purchase for a quality product

By Tumblebee

from Bloomington, IL, USA

Purchased washer July 4th. Delivery was completed in two weeks. We have been using our new washer since then and love it. Very quiet and does a pretty good job leaving the clothes almost dry. Warning to all new purchasers. Make sure you read the manual and follow the instructions. Also, it is important to not think of the old way of washing your clothes if your old machine had an agitator. This does not so you need to place the clothes in the machine as shown by the manual. Test it out first with a few pieces of clothes. Remember, this is a HE machine so it is important to follow the instructions. We love it and are very happy with its performance so far.

            Best Uses

              I have been very happy with my washer. I have only had it a few months, but I have not had any trouble with it. The clothes come out clean, and it is extremely quiet. It does take 57 minutes to wash a load of cotton clothes, which is longer than I am used to.

                  We have used the washer about a month and find it quite good. We've done several heavy loads without trouble. It took a little get used to the different sounds compared to the old agitator machine but we like the washer very much.

                          Frustrating machine

                          By Irish

                          from Cape Cod

                          We purchased this machine less than a year ago. We have always enjoyed LG products, and have been satisfied with their quality. However, this washer is most frustrating. It is supposed to balance loads automatically, and, as careful as I am putting in clothes - with heavier clothes on bottom, as recommended, the machine ALWAYS stops with error, and clothes need rebalancing. Every once in a while the machine works flawlessly, as it is supposed to do. But that's a rarity.If I could I would return and/or sell, and go back to my old agitating washer.

                                We like features, ease of use, settings, etc. BUT, my wife is very displeased with the problem of the clothes being wrinkled when we wash items that are wash and wear that didn't wrinkle with our old machine. Athough this type of machine appears to be consistent in terms of design of other similar machines on the market,the older type of machine we had did not present us with the same wrinkle problem. The wash cylce for most loads is also inordinately long compared to our previous machine.
