What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I bought this 10 days ago. I had to call during the first wash. The drum when it spins makes a very loud banging noise. The operator on the phone heard it also. Not happy at all. Now I have to have repair guy come for a 2 week old product. . I was in the phone with Ivy for 45 mins. She was great. I bought this because my original washer the front door popped open flooded. Repair guy said. “ I don’t know what to tell you”. Not happy about that either

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacing 12 Year Old LG Front Load Washer Last month my 12 yr old LG front load washer began sounding like a jet plane. I then started getting a Overload fault. A Tech inspected and confirmed my suspicions that the mag drive bearing was bad. The cost to repair (replace motor & drum) with labor was going to be more expensive than buying a new unit. The old washer had 3 yr warranty on mag motor, the new washer motor now has 10 yr warranty. Maybe I can hope to get 20 years out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features are the same as my first one Had one for 9 years and it was loud the whole time I had it when it went into spin Cycle I did buy another one in hopes that it last longer then the first one. When I took it down to the recycle place to get rid of it the guys said that there were 4 more that came in right before mine did. All red so lets hope that the white one does better. And the front boot doesn’t tear like the red one.

We just purchased this model and was wondering why the wet detergent fill compartment must be emptied before doing another load. Its annoying to take the tray to the sink each time to empty the water.

Asked by: blingner
I am responding to your concern based on my former washer which was a different brand.  If I overfilled the detergent or any of the compartments by even just a tiny amount, then there would be water in that compartment at the end of the cycle.  Sounds crazy, but that is what I finally concluded.  Typically I used a lot less then the maximum, but if rushing and not being as careful it did happen.
