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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can I wash men's sneakers in the washer?

Asked by: JJJB
No, it only allows you to wash women's sneakers

Does this vibrate/shake too much?

I am planning to place it in 2nd floor, my current one vibrates during hi-spin cycle and causes the house to shake and I can feel it from 2 rooms away from the laundry room. Any body has this appliance installed on 2nd floor and how does it behave in hi-spin cycle?
Asked by: Srs1
Srs1, The amount of vibration on the LG Electronics 4.0 DOE cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer, Model # WM3050CW like any other washing machine, is minimal! You probably wouldn't even know that the machine was washing once you exited the same room it's installed within! 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

Can door opening be reversed?

Asked by: Doreen
Due to the locking mechanism on the door this may or may not be possible. It would be best to check with The Home Depot.

4.0 DOE cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 258.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features, water & energy saver Purchased 6 months ago, and absolutely superb, saves time water and energy, and clothes still get extremely clean. Had one issue when I thought chimer sound stopped working....excellent customer service helped locate the control for that function. Love LG products will continue to purchase them. Phones, TVs, appliances now currently owned with no operating problems from anything. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very good After using the washer for less than 2 1/2 years the tub started to make a loud thumping sound. Called for service and it was going to cost over $400 to repair the shocks and the unit only cost just under $700 when we purchased it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer purchase for us. Great washer. Heavy, doesn't shake the floor & house. Doesn't walk across the floor like our old washer did. Lots of useable features, easy to learn to use. Clothes are cleaner than with our older front load washer and I don't mind doing the chore so much when I hear the cute little tune played at the end of each cycle. The only draw back I see is the detergent drawer cups hold some water after cycle. Not an issue because after laundry is done I remove the whole drawer and dry out and leave out so air can get down into the washer. We dry out the rubber gasket and inside glass of door and leave door open. I do that with front load anyway. I certainly would recommend this washer to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Night and Day! I have used the old style, topload, large agitator washing machines all of my life up until a few months ago. This washer is amazing. The many features are extremely helpful, the size and quietness are outstanding. Loading it and adding cleaning products into it is easy. The use of water is limited so that really helps toward the quarterly water bill. I think the best feature is the final spin mode. It spins so long and so fast that the clothes are practically dry when done. That really cuts down on dryer time. This machine IS efficient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First and best This is our 4th washer and our first front loader. We love it. It does a great job getting the clothes clean and the spin gets most of the water out of the clothes reducing drying time and energy use. We're very happy with this washer
