      Cleaner clothes a guarantee

      This is my first LG washer. Having had below average luck with my GE washers in the past, I had high hopes for this washer based on many reviews I read. For the most part, this washer has not let me down. The good: I do approximately three loads of laundry a day and my clothes have never been cleaner. Truly, all stains have come out of my kids’ clothes like never before. Also, this washer has a HUGE tub with a small footprint. It is several inches smaller than the footprint of my previous GE washer that incorporated a smaller tub. Keep in mind you need about a tablespoon of HE detergent for this washer, especially if you use soft water. It’s hard to put such a small amount of detergent in a huge load of dirty clothes and believe they will come clean, but somehow they do. DON’T overload the detergent. The washer was specifically designed to use less. As to the claim the wash gets done faster, not so much from my perspective. Some loads seem to take forever and I am not clear why. It appears somewhat random. Towels one day may take an hour and another day they may take two. LE does state in the instruction manual that the timing of the load will continually readjust during the cycle to accommodate the load. Smart, if it really is working that way, but it’s still kind of annoying. You can keep going back to your machine for half an hour and the display will appear stuck on ten or fifteen or twenty minutes remaining - that’s what it is designed to do if the washer senses the clothes need more time. Except why would towels used in a normal fashion take such wildly different times to run through the cycle depending on the day? Not a dealbreaker for me, but something to consider if you are counting on doing a fast load before work or bed and need the cycle time to be more accurate from the start. The only truly negative for me involves the detergent/fabric softener tray. The tray is filled up almost every wash with water and needs to be emptied out. Either the fabric softener side is filled up or the detergent side is filled up. I phoned LG and they indicated a few droplets of water was normal. I have about a cup of water EACH load and they weren’t much help with trying to resolve that issue. I see removing this tray to dump it each time a bit of unnecessary wear and tear on the machine and somewhat of a hassle. All that being said, I would buy the machine again just because it does an incredible job of what it is supposed to do - clean the clothes I put in it. It also has a true steam function should you desire it and a cool “waterproof fabric” setting which I love for our waterproof rain and winter gear.

      Washing Machine

      My washing Machine was delivered today. I’ve gotten to run 2 loads. The second one is in the washer. The first one was my “test load” I washed the dirtiest thing in the house, my husbands work uniforms. They are the reason I bought this machine. We had a regular old washer with the center agitator. My husband works in a factory and his clothes always has oil and grease all over them, they never feel clean or even smell clean even with fabric softener and stain remover. So, I had been looking to upgrade our set, something that would clean clothes better; I liked the idea of steam cleaning and something big enough to hold bedding and came across this set. I put his clothes in and the no longer feel just as dirty as before they were washed, they also hold the smell of fabric softener now. There is one flaw to this purchase and it has nothing to do with the machine. I had it delivered and installed. I read the book online before it arrived because several of the reviews said you would have problems if you didn’t read it, like it was an alien spaceship you were trying to operate instead of a washing machine. I read that for your first test cycle it was a couple of buttons you would have to push and the cycle would last 5-10 minutes and several reviewers said the delivery guys would level your machine so it didn’t shake and make a lot of noise. If you live in the Clarksville TN area you will get these delivery men, they did not level my machine, I thought maybe some my floor wasn’t slanted it was fine but it shakes and makes a ton of noise. And they did not do the correct test cycle, they did tub clean which is a 3 hr cycle and left. Also it was around 10* and one of them thought it would be a good idea to peel frozen stickers off. He’s lucky the sticker wouldn’t come off and it didn’t chip any of the paint because I would have had it sent back for a replacement. The machine is wonderful from everything I have used so far. It has a ton of room, everything gets clean (some people are also complaining that not all of their clothes get wet and they have to use water plus but you don’t) If anything changes I’ll update this review. If you are thinking about buying this machine, do it.

      Finally a washing machine that actually cleans clothing with plenty of water. I have been suffering with a prior front loader for 6 years that had soo many problems from day 1. I researched every machine before deciding on this one. I will NEVER buy a front loader again. Hallelujah! This machine fills up right at the top of the clothing level. It’s actually a GENIUS washing machine, some how it knows how much clothing you have in it and adjust water according to the load, no more, no less no matter how large or small the load is. The agitator works fine too. At first it’s in slowww motion and seems like it’s not enough to stir the clothing up, after a few minutes the agitator adjust according to the load and gets stronger/faster, the clothing start to stir and move from top to bottom. It does a decent job in getting our clothes, towels, bedding, pillows clean. The tank is large with plenty of room for bigger items and larger loads. The balancing and spin also adjust according to how small or large the load is and THANK GOD this one does not walk across my floor as if it’s possessed. it’s very stable and smooth during the whole cycle. I also love that I can pause it at anytime and throw something else in it even though it is full of water. You can’t do that with front loaders. so far I am very happy with this machine and happy I decided on it. hopefully it will not break down early like most new things these days.

      Cleans large loads great

      I'm only giving this washer 4 stars because we had to actually replace the first washer that we received. The first washer made a horribly annoying squeaking noise. We only had the machine for a few days before calling to have it diagnosed. The service tech at first said that it was something that we would just have to get used to, but I was not in the habit of getting used to something that shouldn't have been there in the first place after spending so much on a brand new washer. Then the tech said it could be the suspension rods and ordered new parts. The tech came out again to install the rods and he wiped the inside mat down which seemed to be the issue. The rods weren't needed and he left. More loads were washed and the squeaking noise came back. Mind you, it was squeaking on every cycle and I have a small one level house. The noise could be heard throughout the entire house. The service tech called to see how things were going and I informed him that the noise came back. He put in an order to replace my washer with another. We had to take off from work again to have the new washer installed. The new washer is so quiet, as it should be! We are down to washing two loads of clothes each week and that's saying a lot for my family of five. I'm 5'4 and the tub is deep, but not too deep that I feel like I'll fall in to reach that last sock at the bottom. If I had the second washer first, then I would have given a five star review because this washer really is a step up from my amana front load.

      Washer Features I wish I still Had

      I chose the LG based on Consumer Ratings from Consumer Reports, reviews I read on-line from the LG site as well as reviews from consumers who had purchased from Best Buy as well as other Big Box Stores. The washer is performing well and I have had no problems with the machine itself. Even based on my review below I would purchase again. I have had the machine almost 4 months. Features I miss; no light in washer tub, it's a long way down to the bottom picking out dark clothes. The reviews were right on the money stating if you were short it's hard to get to the bottom, even harder when the clothes are small, dark and no light. Washing options are somewhat limited, can't pick and choose cycle settings, temperatures, and duration. Some of the settings are in prepackaged groups. Example: Turbo-Wash won't let you use hot water. The wash cycles are very long. Example: Delicate Cycle is 56 minutes. Not all wash settings will let you spin on low. There is not a bleach indicator setting on the washer. For example, if you accidently pour bleach in the dispenser and wash on darks, the water runs through the bleach dispenser no matter what setting you use. There is no light or option to turn off.

      Good Washer if only the Tag On Feature Worked!

      We purchased this washer and the matching dryer because of the great reviews it received and partially because we wanted to be able to use the LG Smart Laundry App since the units would be in the basement. We have been very satisfied with the performance on every aspect EXCEPT the Tag On feature does not work. We spent hours in the store with the associates trying to get the floor model to work but even they could not figure it out. I have contacted LG customer support about this and was transferred to four different people. None of them could get this to work and none of them could offer any explanation why it is failing to connect. Now this may seem trivial but I would like to remind you the smart diagnosis feature they use as a selling point depends solely on the phones ability to connect to the washer/dryer. Since we cannot get this to work this feature is completely useless along with the option of using a downloaded cycle. If I'd have known this did not work, I would have saved myself some money and went with a cheaper brand/model. If you are looking for a washer and dryer that does just that, this is a great purchase but if you are looking for the smart technology they are claiming to offer, look elsewhere!

      Great purchase

      I bought this set after a ton of research and on every site this model has the best reviews for good reason. Here's the pros and cons Pros. Tons of features, cleanes our clothes spotless. I did my entire family of 4s laundry in 4 hours, including clothes, bedding, towels, delicates. The draining cycle is a tad loud but other than that very quiet. It looks awesome. I just washed soiled work pants and start to finish was 35 minutes. The tub is massive. This is the top of the line of market right now. Cons. Like I said drain feature is a little loud. There is a learning curve. Sensor dry takes a few loads to get used to and all the settings to get it right. But once I did I had full loads clean and dry in under an hour. If you order online best buy does not prompt you to order steam dryer installation kit. I had to do myself. Best buy also did not level my dryer. They were also late for the second time. In short GET THIS SET, READ THE MANUAL. I actually look forward to doing laundry. At the price point I assumed it had wifi, which it doesnt but this is the real deal.

      Slow but does the job

      We previously owned the LG Direct Drive front loading washer/dryer. We were very pleased with that set and after a recent move we shopped around and decided to purchase this version because the front-loader just wouldn't fit in the laundry room space. I am still acquainting myself with all the features, but it seems to work well. My primary complaint is that it takes MUCH longer to do even a speed wash cycle on this washer. While the initial estimate is 28 minutes, I have yet to complete a load in less than 45 minutes. The sanitize and allergine cycles take 3 to 3.75 hours to complete (the old version took 1.5 to 2 hours for those cycles.) The dryer seems similarly inefficient. It eventually dries but a large load takes forever and a smaller load takes far longer than my old front-loading version of the LG. I would give a tepid recommend for these but only if you couldn't use the front-loading LG direct drive washer/dryer which is MUCH more efficient.
