The Dreaded "LE" Error

MrsTDS, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: I want to love this washer. I researched it endlessly. Overall we love the way it washes, rinses, etc. Not too loud. BUT. This thing is just about a year old and we are suffering from the dreaded LE error. The machine locks up, refuses to spin, and we have to unplug it, plug it back in, shift the clothes around, remove clothes, etc OVER AND OVER again to get a load done. And I am having a heck of a time finding someone to repair it.

Still undecided

Beth, RC Willey

  • Conclusion: I have been using the Tide pods and there is always leftover detergent and residue in the compartment. If I use the powdered pods, they are almost completely intact after running a cycle. My clothes do not come out smelling as fresh as with my old washer. I do not know how clean my clothes are really getting and do not understand why the detergent is not dissolving.

Does not work properly with tankless water heater

xbuilder, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I was forced to return this washer for a refund because it would not work properly with my high-efficiency tankless water heater. The washer does not so much wash clothes as it does 'play' with them. Instead of simply filling the tub and getting on with washing, it first bounces them around intermittently, while periodically squirting hot water on them a second or two at a time. This happens many, many times in a row at the beginning of the wash cycle.
  • Pros: stainless steel

long wash cycles

vickielee57, RC Willey
23 January 2013
  • Conclusion: I've found the cyles on this washer are long compared to my last washer. My clothes are not coming out as clean, especially the whites. Also, it's very noisy and vibrates alot when I have heavy loads like jeans. The one thing I do like is that it spins the clothes nearly dry and it has a good amount of settings.
  • Pros: easy to use, Features/Settings

Vibration is a real issue

  • Conclusion: Vibration problems with most loads. Washer is level but still vibrates to the point you must hold the washer or pause to adjust the load.

Pretty but has Manufacturing Defects

J Holley, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: The machine is beautiful and I love all the function. BUT...Be AWARE there are manufacturing issues with the water input. I have to put on ear buds when I run it. The machine is not manufactured to handle different water pressure. My water pressure is not high really but when the water comes in the machine it sounds like someone came in the house with a jack hammer. Service man came out and said yeah it's a known issue but most people just live with it.

Some really good things, some really bad

Walt Slater "Walt Slater", Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: I have an older model LG washer that is about 3 years old now. When it works it washes great, clean clothes from some real dirty messes, super spinning - seem almost dry sometimes. My frustration is that this only happens about 1 in 5 or six loads. Most of the time the washer spins and vibrates itself up against the laundry closet doors, about an 8 inch "walk" across the floor.
