I miss my old Maytag!

SKing, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: First and foremost - I miss my old Maytag with the agitator. I had it for almost 30 years before needing to replace it. I get the whole new and improved product - but I don't get how they consider this a "High Efficiency" machine when it takes 1 1/2 hours to complete a wash cycle, no savings on electricity here. It still requires the same amount of detergent as the old machines and it may use less water but that's not a good thing when you have to wash the clothes twice.

great features but poor performance

Carturn, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I love the lack of an agitator which means I can wash large bulky items. I like the cycle options and water-saving features. I can even deal with leaving the floor to reach to the bottom. What I cannot deal with is that only 5% of the time does a load run without becoming unbalanced. The washer stops and has to be manually rearranged. This happens no matter the size of the load.

So disappointed

Donna_R, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this machine with high hopes after reading all the consumer reviews. Unfortunately, my experience with it has been very disappointing. First, the pros: Great styling and large capacity. But... Since purchasing the machine 2 weeks ago, it's leaked all over my laundry room floor twice. It's very loud compared to my previous front loader. The "waveforce" agitation does nothing more than slosh the water around, the clothes do not come out clean at all.
  • Pros: Style/Design

NIGHTMARE PURCHASE

Polyowannakrckr, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: LAST YEAR THERE WERE OLDER MODELS RECALLED FOR SPIN SPEED NOT PERFORMING ACCURATELY AND DANGEROUS THUMPING PRODUCED BY THE WASHERS... A FIRMWARE UPDATE WAS MADE!! THIS MODELS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL AND THEY ARE STILL HAVING THE SAME ISSUES!! IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN AFTER 4 WEEKS OF OWNING THIS WASHER IT BEGINS TO SPIN ON AN EXTRA HIGH SPEED ON A LOW SPEED SETTING. I TRIED RESETTING IT.

Unhappy

Melanie, FutureShop
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Not at all happy with this product! It may look very nice however it has left liquid fabric softener stains on lots of my clothes despite their recommendations to add water with the fabric softener. There is only a couple of cycles, which people wouldn't normal use that actually fills the drum when rinsing, otherwise on the other cycles it just sprays a stream of water when rinsing which does not remove all soap and leaves soap residue on the clothes as well.
