Product Overview

The LG 4.0 cu. ft. ultra large capacity front load washer was awarded the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation in 2013 and features 7 wash cycles. Among the 7 cycles the washer includes Hand Wash/Wool and Speed Wash. Together, LGs ColdWash and 6 Motion technologies give you what seemed impossible: cold-water savings with warm-water performance. LG True Balance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor. The upfront electronic control panel with dual LED display and Dial-A-Cycle provide reliable operation. And, it's powered by LG's Direct Drive Motor, which comes with a 10-year limited warranty. As you can see, compromise is not in our dictionary. Why would it be in yours?

What makes a machine vibrate excessively or to the extent that it becomes noticeably is that your floor is not level or that the machine was not leveled properly on installation. Other factors that cause a machine to vibrate or shake will be washing waterproofed or water-resistant clothing, or unbalanced loads which will cause the machine to shake or vibrate excessively, especially on the high spin modes!...IFV

There should be instructions included with a washer and a dryer stating if the door can be reversed. If it can be the information should also be included in the installation instructions procedures should state how to reverse the oping of the door. If you do not have a copy of this information they can be obtained of the Home Depot website under the washer purchased/manuals & instructions.

We purchase this washer and stacking kit and it is compatible with the LG dryer with steam. I recommend two sets of hands to stack as I did it alone and it's just too bulky when doing by yourself. Overall the dryer is not heavy, so the extra set of hands would make it simple.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Need to replace drain hose after only 2 years Drain hose is corrugated, hard plastic and developed a pinhole leak after only 2 years. Hose has to be special ordered through company, 7-10 days so I will be going to the laundromat. As far as cleaning, I am not impressed, stains do not come out and clothes do not smell as fresh. This is my first front loader and probably my last. May 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best washer I have ever owned The water usage at my house has dropped dramatically due to this washer. Also my electric bill because clothes dry quicker in the dyer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Washer!! This is an awesome washer! I really think that my clothes have never been this clean before! From the first wash until today I have no complaints about it. It's powerful, quiet, water saving, everything. I really like the Speed Wash option, you can pick the level of dirty and the wash is done anywhere from 15-22 min. It's great for those days when you have 5-6 loads of laundry. I'm thoroughly impressed and highly pleased with this product!! March 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total lemon that ruins our clothes We purchased this washer through Home Depot in November '15 but did not receive it until February due to backorder. Since then it has been nothing but a disappointment, and LG has not been very helpful. (1) To begin with, this washer takes forever. Our old upright, unitized unit would typically wash even large loads in 35-40 minutes. This washer takes 50-60 minutes for small loads and up to two hours for large, heavily soiled loads. Fortunately, its advanced spin cycle dries out the clothes pretty well, so drying time is reduced. (2) However, before it can rinse and spin, it must balance the load. We have had a lot of problems with loads not balancing. The washer will wash the clothes, then try to balance without success. This happens on all sort of loads, big and small. If it cannot reach balance, it simply doesn't rinse or spin the clothes, but rather sits in limbo. We've had to stop the washer on many loads to readjust the clothing, try again and again, before it will finally spin. Even then it shakes a lot. (3) We began noticing mysterious brown oil spots on a lot of our clothing. Some websites said this was a common problem with front-loaders not distributing or rinsing detergent or fabric softener correctly. We began reducing our amount of detergent down to even 1/4-teaspoon and still had problems. The LG customer service reps told us to do tub clean, which we did numerous times, and to make sure we were using hot water and to shut off our cold water. Frankly, that is stupid because washers are supposed to work on cold or cool water. Despite having an LG repair man come to our house twice, who checked it out and told us everything is normal and nothing is wrong and that there's no reason he can see why we should be getting spots on our clothes, they continue to show up. These spots do not come out and are ruining our clothing. (4) Many of our clothes come out with a powdery, white haze on them, or they otherwise look muddied and dingy. My white undershirts are now light blue, despite being washed in an all-white load. My once charcoal-gray pants are now light gray in just a few washes. All in all, this washer is vastly sub-par to our simple, 15-year-old unitized W/D combo that died on us. We spend so much time and money re-washing clothes and running tub clean cycles that it's hardly "high efficiency" anymore. We're stuck with ruined clothes and a horrible washer. Our only recourse is to try to return or exchange it. I really do not recommend this washer. May 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The Washer's OK, Matching Dryer Not So Much! This washer is easy to operate, uses very little water, is pretty quiet, and it cleans the clothes fairly well (though not as well as a top loader) BUT... the matching dryer spews dirt and sand all over the floor when you open the door (and yes, I clean the lint filter each time). Consider this flaw when buying the matching pair. The washer also gets a musty odor pretty easily. I always leave the door open to let it dry out and I wipe the door and inner seal with a dry cloth each time as recommended, but it still develops a bad odor. I only do one load of wash a week so it's not like it's overused. You have to run the cleaning cycle every month or so and you have to empty the drain pipe down below regularly. That's way too much maintenance for me! Wish I had stuck with a traditional top loader instead, but I do appreciate that this machine conserves water. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy peesy! I'm not the one who normally does the wash. So when I went to use it for the first time, I was surprised how easy it was to setup for washing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 18, 2016
