Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 209 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Clothes come out dirtier than they go in The LG washer we bought in Nov 2014 leaves stains, debris, and discoloration on our clothes after washing. We bought an LG top-loading washer in Nov 2015 from Pacific Home and Kitchen and since the first load we have noticed issues. The washer leaves stains, debris and discolorations on our clothes - the come out dirtier than they go in! We have had technicians to our home 3 times and have tried a variety of fixes per their suggestions - try more detergent, try less detergent, try tub cleans, try water softeners, try less clothes, try more clothes. Nothing has helped. The last technician came and admitted the washer is not working normally, but he could not diagnose an actual problem. After waiting days for customer service to call us about a follow-up (which they assured us would happen), we called them and were given a similar run-around. Today we spoke to a supervisor in customer management and he said they get complaints like this a lot and "can't replace everyone's machines". His solution was to send another technician out to look at the washer. We told him at this point we needed them to do something more he said he could not help us. He could not give us any details on what the technician would be looking for this time, or what a possible solution could be - basically he told us there is no solution, even though we are dissatisfied and under warranty. LG is not standing behind their product or providing satisfactory customer service. 7/11/15
Rated 5 out of 5 This product has great features I'm very happy with this washer. I especially love the song it plays when it is done. I always stop what I am doing and listen. It puts a smile on my face everytime. Thanks for the lift. 1/21/14
Rated 5 out of 5 Love it! Have been using new washer approximately one month and have been pleased with my clothes,they smell clean and look clean. I think it's the best washer I've ever had! 2/4/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost perfect Although I've only owned the LG washer about 30 days or so, so far so good. Hardly enough time to really know if there are going to be any real problems. But it is a nice machine. Was a little set back at all the gizmo's but it is very user friendly. Like the machine. Have to warn you about the extended warranty, if you have no claims for five years you get back half the fee. Be careful to read the fine print. You have several hoops to jump through to comply. The one that is most important is the 30 day window after five years. Got everything in an envelope, taped on the wall, with the date on it. Reminds me very time I go in the Landry room! 11/17/15
