Summary: We had this machine for 5 years. It worked fine but developed mold issues right off the bat. We left the door open, cleaned it monthly, drained the tubes, and all the other recommended tricks to prevent mold to no avail.
Summary: Purchased product in May/June 2008. Generally ran well/ as anticipated until October 2013 (about 5 yrs 5 months), then the washer experienced a catastrophic failure of the drum/ drive connection. Technician indicated that the unit would cost more to repair than to buy new.
Summary: This product has mold issues and should have never been sold. An owner has to disassemble the washer to clean it about once a year. It is a very poor design and LG did not test it well enough before it was sold.
Summary: I believe the washer is 5-7 years old...it came with the house. It washes clothes very well. The mold issues described in the other review are problems with all front load washers so i dont really have a gripe about that.
Summary: Bought this machine less than three years ago after searching the web for best value and ratings. What a mistake. The clothes don't get clean and the smell that permeates my clothes are terrible! Tried buying a product to stop smell but it only works sometimes.
Summary: I was nervous about buying a front loading washer, particularly when I heard the average wash cycle takes an hour. However, I am very pleased with this washer. It does take longer than top loaders, but it cleans beautifully with just half as much detergent and a small amount of water.
Summary: I bought this washer as a set with LG dryer #DLE2516W and love them both! I've had them almost two years and no problem with either of them. The dryer even plays a little song when clothes are dry! For those that are having trouble with balance they must be overloading the machine.
Summary: I purchased this washer just over 2 years ago as my first front loader set.. I must say that to this day I love it! I have two small children so I do a load a day.. The timer feature is great for planing along with the daily start...
