Summary: My LG WT5170HW washer just got an LE error code during the middle of a load. When I called customer service they gave me the name of a service company in my area and then said they would not cover the labor for fixing the motor (which apparently is the issue).
Worst purchase mistake of my life - run away from this machine!

Summary: I purchased this washer 2 years ago. I was looking for the largest capacity that I could reasonably afford. I also wanted to save water. I was replacing an old agitator-type GE model that was still going strong after 17 years.
Summary: I have had this washer for over a year and have not experienced the problems expressed in some of the other reviews...never goes out of balance, does not twist my clothes, etc. This LG washer is the fifth washer I have owned.
dont buy this washing machine unless you have a babysitter

Summary: I didn't think it was possible to hate an appliance as much as I hate this appliance. This machine HATES me. I cannot do a single load without having to rebalance the clothes a minimum of 5 times. It's ridiculous, I consider myself a smart person, but this machine is not having any of it!

Summary: I too have had much difficulty with this washer. We inherited it with a home purchase and I have found it very frustrating to do a load of laundry. With three girls - two being teens I am constantly washing clothes.
Summary: DO NOT BUY!!! Had it for 20 months when running a cycle one night it completely overflowed and water starting fill the laundry room and part of my house... all sensor fried and LG gave no support since it was out of warranty...
Excerpt: If you want a true unbiased review, look on Amazon. The reviews for this washer are way different than the LG website. When I bought over a year ago, there weren't many reviews of this machine out there. It gets off balance a minimum of 5 times per load.
I didn't think it was possible to make me hate laundry more than I already did but LG succeeded

Summary: I now DESPISE laundry. Not that I liked it a whole lot beforehand, but it takes me at least twice as long with this washer. We have had our washer since Oct 30, 2013 (12 1/2 months) and during 9 out of 10 loads it gets "off balance" and completely stops.
