Customer Questions & Answers


I have seen reviews that complain about the terrible odor. Is this because the tub needs to be cleaned first, as one suggested, or does the door need to be kept open after a wash so mildew doesn't form?
Asked by: Anonymous
There is a bit more work required with a High efficiency washer. When the load of wash is done, you need to thoroughly dry the inside door, and wipe away all the water in the gasket until it is almost dry. Always leave the door open at least a crack. Every month you are to wash the gasket with a bleach solution and let dry. The washer will tell you when you need a tub clean. When that happens, add a cup or two of chlorine bleach to the drum and run the tub clean cycle. When it finishes, do a rinse and spin cycle to clean up any leftover bleach. Always use HE detergent. I have owned my washer for a month now and I have no trace of any odor. I never pre-cleaned my washer. I just ran the rinse and spin cycle as the instructions said to do. I hope this helps.

Does anyone have a problem with mold with these front loaders?

Asked by: Anonymous
In the 5 months I have owned this washer, I never had a problem at all. If you buy this washer, you will love it. It washes well, saves money, is quiet and never misses a beat. You have to dry the gasket after each wash, but that is the price you pay for efficiency. It washes huge loads of clothes and they come out clean, even using the cold water wash cycle. Remember to use a good HE detergent and you will be fine. This washer has cut my wash load in half. It really does wash lots of clothes at one time. Buy it, and you will love it. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Washer! How excited can laundry actually get you? With my LG3470, very! The options cover everyday needs with a touch of a button, and the TurboWash means fast return on those "must have now" items. As a test to its ability, (I installed this machine nearly a year ago and have been using it 2-3x a week since), all loads are completed using only the Cold Water setting and Tide with Oxy Pods and even the dirtiest fabrics come out stain free! That TurboWash somehow does just as thorough a cleaning in a fraction of the time, but I urge you to make sure you level the unit on a solid surface cuz in that High Spin Mode, it nearly takes off! The outcome? Clothes spun so water-free, drying is completed in a fraction of the time it used to take. How many of us have had completed wash done, but were stuck waiting on the Dryer? You won't with this set. I LOVE IT, and THEM both. Best laundry set I've ever owned. 5*****s! In a new house, my laundry room/walk-in closet is the first room I show off and everyone comments on how "sexy" the Metallic Bronze Washer and Dryer are. Way to go (Again) LG! Life's Good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy This Washer!! This is the first front loader washer I have purchased. After way more due diligence than any one person should ever do for an appliance, I decided to replace my energy hog top loader with this LG front loader. I was hesitant to do so, but in the end just did it. I’ve read horror stories with all of the brands out there, but seemed to read way more positive reviews on LG than any other brand. I bought this model before there were any reviews out there on it taking a risk, but I am glad I did! I have the mind of an engineer, and have probably spent too much time studying how it works. The amount of water it uses for the amount of laundry is minimal. I did a full load of towels and it used about 28 gallons of water in total. To do the same amount of towels in my top loader (double rinse), I would have had to do 2 loads and would have used about 130 gallons. I read reviews about the spin cycle shaking too much. My machine is on a concrete floor, so it might be different on a wood floor, but it doesn’t shake at all. The one thing that I did not read in any of the reviews for any of the front loaders is that if you have particularly high water pressure, these washers will cause your pipes to hammer (or bang throughout the house). I can’t imagine that would be very good for the plumbing. You’ll need to get something called a Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrester. They are very inexpensive and solve the hammering problem. I have extremely few and extremely minor dislikes about this machine. I’ll list my likes and dislikes below and you can judge for yourself. Likes: • I can fit double the laundry in this machine than I could my top loader. I can fill it up completely and it still cleans everything in it. Pillows, blankets, queen size comforter, over a dozen pair of jeans; no problem! • If I dropped a sock on the way down the stairs, I can still go back and put it in after the machine has started. If you hit the pause button, the door will unlock for you. The only times it will not unlock is if it senses that the water is too hot (on the sanitary and allergiene cycles) or if the water level is too high, which it is not on most cycles. • This machine has a cycle for every load possible! And, options like steam that you can add to the cycle. I especially like the Sanitary and Allergiene cycles for my sheets because I have allergies. Yes, they take a while, but it’s worth it. And I can fit 4 sets of queen sheets in there at a time so in the end, I don’t think it’s unreasonable. • Most cycles are pretty fast – no longer or not much longer than the top loader. It adjusts the amount of time depending on the load size too. A full load of towels might take an hour, but you’re washing double the amount you could in the top loader and the dry time is cut down because it extracts most of the water in the final spin. Most loads seem to take around 45 minutes. • Very fast spin speeds for things going into the dryer which cuts down dry time and energy used significantly. I tend to hang my dress shirts and pants to dry, so I use a slower spin speed which also does a good job without wrinkling my clothes. • Extremely energy efficient and quiet! It adjusts the amount of water and time depending on the load size. Because it has a direct drive motor, the only sound it makes is the sound of the laundry crashing through the water, which is very minimal. Spinning has a slight hum, but if you close the door to your laundry room, you’ll never know its running. Dislikes (however insignificant): • The washer door is not reversible, so it has to go on the left. Seems like most all front loaders are like this, but it’s annoying because my laundry area is set up for the washer to be on the right. At least they made the drain hose and power cord long enough to accommodate this. • I don’t like the tinted door. If you want to see what’s going on inside, you’ll need a flashlight. • You’ll need to buy the Water Hammer Arrestor mentioned above if you have high water pressure. • I really wish it had a drain & spin with the option of adding a rinse rather than a rinse & spin, but not a big deal. • If you want the hot and warm water settings to actually use hot and warm water, you’ll need to draw the hot water from the water heater to the washer. Because it uses so little water, by the time the hot water reaches the washer, it’s already half full so what you really get is cooler water than expected. If you have a laundry tub, as I do, you just have to run the hot water in the sink until hot water comes out so that the cold water in the pipes aren’t fed into the washer. If you don’t have a sink, you could always use the pre-wash feature to solve the problem. I suppose this is an issue with all front loaders. • I think the price for the machine is not far out of line, but the price for the drawer underneath is outrageous. I opted to not get it because of that. Would be nice to have it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work properly with tankless water heater 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. The result is that the water heater is triggered to come on, but then has to shut down immediately because the washer quit drawing hot water. As a result, the washer never gets hot water and the water heater gets excess wear and tear. LG set up an in-warranty service call, but the repair people informed me that this was 'normal' operation. Do not buy a high-efficiency washer like this if you have a tankless water heater without a recirculation system (which would defeat the savings of a tankless heater anyway).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE - especially for bulky items! I would marry this machine if I could! It does everything and perfect for my many rugs, comforters and blankets. I love using the sanitary features for killing bed mites in the bedding. It's quiet, doesn't use much detergent, has a turbo wash and does anything you can imagine. I researched for months - best reliability, features, price, etc. Finally decided it was between Whirlpool or LG. Went to retailer to see units in person and liked LG the best. The opening is large. Recommend you get matching pedastal too! I hate doing laundry but it seems like so much more fun now. Got matching dryer and washer a couple months ago & no problems except one - It won't FOLD the clothes or hang them up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice washer Very nice washer with a lot of useful features. If there were many more features you would probably never use them, but this one has features you may actually use. Clothes come out very clean and smelling fresh. Quiet operation as opposed to a top-load agitating machine. I can actually leave the utility room door open while it's running. A couple of caveats. Make sure the floor you place it on is structurally sound. The speed of the spin cycle will vibrate the floor no matter how well balanced the machine is. Try to put in clothes that are similar in weight and fabric. For example, don't mix jeans with lighter fabrics. It's hard for the washer to balance the different kinds of material at the rate it spins, and it will vibrate more as a result. Be sure to tie up any excess water supply hose. The water valve shutting and opening on the washer is frequent and very quick. If the hoses are loose, they will bang against the wall or back of the washer and you'll think it's banging your water pipes when it actually isn't. Leveling the washer and a solid floor is critical. The ultra-high speed of the spin cycles will cause excessive vibration if these issues aren't addressed. Overall, great washer. You'll be happy with it if you make sure your installation is correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer I bought this washer approximately 3 years ago and have really enjoyed the ease of use. I will say that just this past week it suddenly stopped working, it would not power on. Luckilly I had the 4 year protection, so the part and labor was free (I believe it was just a fuse, no major repair) But the overall functionality of it is great. The repair even gave me some basic tips on how to maintenance it (I'm sure most people know these simple tricks, but I didn't) I would reccommend this washer for purchase to a friend.
