Love My New Washer

Submitted by Devlin66 - 7/5/2018

Ive had this washer a few weeks now and Im very happy with it. Its smaller than I expected but that works fine for me because I live in a condo and have limited space. My clothes come out fresh and clean every time. And I like that it has an extra hot water setting as well as a small load cycle. I leave the washer door open when not in use to avoid the mildew smell that others complain about. If I had to say anything negative about it it would be that it vibrates during the faster spin cycles even with it being level and that causes the floor and walls to rattle a bit. But I live on the 2nd floor so it wouldnt be a problem if it was on a cement floor like in a garage. But still I think its hardly worth complaining about given how happy I am with the washer overall.

Good washer for RV

Submitted by ja1800 - 5/14/2018

I bought this to replace the washer in my RV. Like all front-loaders it shakes during spin but is much better than the one it replaced. Seems to do a good job cleaning the clothes using very little water. It has a good selection of cycles and options. There arent many choices at this size but I would still buy this one. It is slightly deeper than the original washer which required me to modify the cabinet it is in but it was worth the work.

Excellent compact washer

Submitted by Phil C - 5/12/2018

Bought this washer in April of 2018 so far its been excellent. The washer takes up the same space as a dishwasher. Its efficient and relatively quiet. It can make a little bit of noise and vibrate during the spin cycle so it is essential to make sure the machine is level and that the load is balanced. The spin cycle gets a lot of the water out so it doesnt take too long to dry your clothes. Its also important to dry any water on the door and gasket which you dont have to do with a top loader but that can be done at the end of the day and its worth doing it to prevent any moldy smell.

Wonderful Machine

Submitted by John5861 - 4/19/2018

What an amazing little machine this is. I was nervous going from a full-size washer and large vented dryer to this unit but the capacity is remarkable. I can wash 4-6 pairs of jeans 4-6 towels or a normal load of color or white laundry. A couple of my shirts do come out a bit more wrinkled than before but thats what an iron is for. The vast majority of clothes come out soft and wrinkle free. The ability to set this machine to run and then come home to clean dry laundry is amazing. Thanks for another great product LG

So convenient

Submitted by DeeBee59 - 4/19/2018

I bought this washer when I wasnt able to fit my old full-sized combo into the little house Id bought. Was concerned that its small size would make me have to wash every day. But it doesnt and I LOVE IT Also am happy that its Energy Star rated. Its very efficient does a great job of cleaning takes loads of 6 pr. jeans or a set of queen sized sheets in its stride. And this is a quiet washer with little or no vibration no thanks to the uneven floors in this old house. It was an expensive set but I think its well worth it. THANK YOU LG

Submitted by ABCDE1234FG - 4/10/2018

Purchased this washer for my elderly parent. Older house narrow stairways. Washer is easy to use and does a very good job washing smaller loads. Very little vibration do in part to being on a concrete floor. Parent is very satisfied which in part makes me even more satisfied. Much improvement over older front loader. This washer does exactly what it was designed to do.

Submitted by MNY18 - 3/3/2018

Overall I am happy with my new LG compact front load washer. Pros: - meets my height limit while providing good capacity for an average load. - very effective final spin for water removal - fairly quiet - easy controls - pleasant sounding alarm - overall nice visual appeal Cons: - too efficient with water. - very loud during water filling step. Borderline scary but not for long - lack of bleach load compartment - has moved forward a bit after a few use

This machine replaced an older front load that had worn out. We had to schedule wash loads around other activities because of the noise.

Very satisfied.

Submitted by drKK - 10/29/2017

Bought this washing machine due to space limitations. Smaller load capacity than previous one but still will fit most laundry except probably a couple of items. Overall quiet. Good features to choose from to run the load. But several things that are supposed to be cleaned intermittently that will add time to maintain it.

Cleans

Submitted by Mushroom - 9/22/2017

Ive had my washer for quite sometime now and enjoy most of the different cycles to choose from. I would like the high spin cycle to spin dry more and to have a spin cycle only. The rubber gasket needs much attention because of the high humidity here so once my wash cycle is complete I dry out the tub and gasket and occasionally use a chlorine solution to clean out the gaskets of black gunk.

Horrible Smell left on clothes

Submitted by LoriJean - 9/22/2017

We have had this machine for 11 years. Unfortunately I think we bought when front-loaders were somewhat new to the industry because it leaves our clothes with a bad-smell...Like a moldy damp odor. We have to leave the door open when not in use so the interior can dry out. I have tried many solutions to remove the build-up on the outside of the interior tunnel but nothing seems to work. I will say that switching to a powder detergent has cut back on the bad odor.

Excellent Compact Washer

Submitted by CodyShive - 5/28/2017

I couldnt be happier with this compact washer. Its perfect for one person and an apartment. Operation is quiet and the spin cycle even at the highest is well-balanced and quiet. Clothes come out nearly dry. Features I love include a Drain+Spin which you will use if you have overloaded the washer and it cant get the load balanced well enough to spin the contents dry take out some of the contents and use Drain+Spin to get them rung out. Ive used several cycles so far and each works well for the type of load. Ive been using the Tide pods one per load as this is a small washer. I tested with some really dirty clothes and they came out perfectly clean. The only thing I looked for on this washer was a tub light like the big LG has. One design consideration for LG is to think about using higher-contrast lettering on the control panel or to back-light the entire panel. Beneath each selection is the name of the selection Gray background with black lettering. This might be hard for some folks to read without direct light.

Good overall but wont do a hot wash

Submitted by cnd123 - 5/3/2017

Ive had this machine about 2.5 months so far I like it. I needed a very compact machine and in the USA there arent a lot of good choices and this one seemed to be the best of whats available. It wrings the clothes so dry that they can hang for just a few hours to finish up drying. It uses VERY LITTLE water and is super energy efficient. But heres what I dont like - 1 Im told that newer Energystar machines like this one tend to mix in cold water to lower the cost of a load of laundry because hot water costs more than cold. That is certainly the case with this machine. Unless you select the VERY LONG sanitary cycle the machine will only due a lukewarm wash at best. It will always mix in cold water and will not do a true hot water only wash cycle. The sanitary cycle uses the internal heater and that allows a hot wash. It would seem to me that if I select HOT as the cycle temp that is what I should get but alas that is not the case with this machine. 2 The machine spins very fast up to 1400 rpm in order to really wring the clothes dry but that can cause the machine to shake and rattle a lot. You can select a lower spin speed but that leaves more water in the clothes. 3 Lastly the drain pump on the machine makes a loud rattling noise when it activates this is annoying as my machine is in a closet in my living room. 4 Because of the limited choices in this size range the machines are very expensive like this one is. In the full size range a similar machine could be found for at least $200 less. Supply and demand I guess. So in short I find it does a decent job cleaning and uses very little water but the cycles are long its quite noisy and you cant get a hot wash w/o choosing the very long sanitary cycle.
