Customer Questions & Answers

Does the unit shake or vibrate during spin cycle?

Does the unit shake or vibrate during spin cycle? If so, how severely? Will it 'walk' on my concrete floor in the basement?
Asked by: Dana
I just replaced a Whirlpool Duet washer with this new LG. The LG is much quieter than the Duet and produces less vibration on spin. Our washer is sitting on a wood floor which is much more prone to vibration than a concrete floor. The whole house vibrated when the Duet was spinning. In contrast, we don't even notice that this one is spinning. We have had absolutely no issues using this LG on a wood floor.

LG Ft. Load Washer with steam, how good is this function can do for me?

Asked by: Roses
We are very impressed with the improved cleaning ability provided by the steam. We recently purchased tis LG to replace a Whirlpool Duet. The Duet did not have steam. We wash many items that are soiled with automotive grease and oil. We also wash many items that are heavily soiled with dirt. The results are amazing. The only down side is that the steam cycles require more time.

My drain is not in the floor but above the washer...will it drain properly?

My washer is in the basement and the drain runs along the top of the basement ceiling...approx 7 feet high. I plan to use the pedestal which will raise the machine another foot.
Asked by: Mike
Yes, my drain is just above the washer and it drains fine.

Customer Reviews

4.0 DOE cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in Graphite Steel, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 480.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from So many bad things about this washer! I have had this THING for almost 3 years and I DO NOT like it! Not always but often, I have to babysit it until a load is complete because it often becomes off balance and will quit due to the load being too heavy, even if it isn't. The water doesn't always drain out and I will have to ring the clothes out before throwing them in the dryer. About 3-5 times a month, water will just seep out of the bottom somewhere and my husband and I can't find out where it is actually coming from. The detergent tray gets very gross, gunked up and mildews so bad that it is difficult to pull the tray out...I clean it once a month. I honestly prefer top loads after having this pain in the rear for the past three years . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer ever! My husband and I purchased this washer after our previous washer died. Both are front loaders, so its really easy to compare the two. Our old washer was loud, this is not. Our old washer didn't have all the settings that the new one has (alergene, steam, sanitary). We both have really bad allergies, so the alergene setting is wonderful for sheets and towels. My husband works at the hospital, so the sanitary setting is a very nice feature. I feel like the clothes are coming out cleaner (or at least they smell fresher), they don't take as long to dry. We researched product reviews online (on multiple sites) before purchasing this washer. Yes, it cost a little more than I wanted to pay, but it was totally worth it. I'm so happy with this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going back to a front loader. Very recently we purchased the new top loader he Lg machine. What a joke. I am unable to return it so I took our loss and purchased this unit. We had previously owned a front loader Lg unit for five years and sold it to replace with a new unit. This unit I just purchased is close to our older trom model. It cleans our clothes well, it is energy efficient, and has a lot of features. Now that being said-here are a few new owner tips from a veteran Lg front loader unit owner I wish I had known when I first purchased my first front loader. This should apply to any brand! 1. The shaking is from the unit not being leveled properly. The manual says to level all sides completely. Wrong! Level the unit completely first, then raise the front legs up until the clothes move off the door slightly. Lock the legs. This will end your headaches. A seasoned Lg tech shared this solution that works. He advised me that he had seen it all and heard every trick to solve these issues by sales associates and inexperienced techs in the industry. For five years I never had my unit walk off or unbalance. Worked flawlessly! 2. The floor must be solid-either concrete or put a thick board screwed down under the unit on a subfloor . Do not try remedies such as pads and rubber mats refer back to #1. Pedestals do not work well with these type machines-save your money. 3. The door has a feature to vent the drum. This is a fix to the old mildew problems. Use it. Wipe the seal occasionally to keep it clean as it collects dirt like any other unit does. Common sense here! 4. Like any unit, if the unit is unbalanced stop it immediately and remedy it. this applies to any type of unit. Leaving any unit washing unattended is asking for trouble. 5. If you are new to an HE unit you need to understand these are different types of units compared to traditional technology. They are designed to run longer, use less water and spin at higher speeds- this is the design. If you do not like change then you will not adapt to this technology. 6. With any washer-if you are into construction or auto mechanic type work- go to a laundry mat with those clothes if you expect perfection. My wife wouldn't want me to wash those in her machine anyways. Or stick to the old agitator types. These do not agitate your clothes to oblivion to clean them like mom's old unit did. They tumble them and are more gentle on clothes. 7. Most people return these units due to lack of understanding the operation of these units and how to install them properly. Make the effort if you buy one to get it functioning properly and understand your washer. If your on the fence stay away. 8. If you are the too picky type-you will only frustrate yourself using an he washer. If you are old school stay with the older technology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine and Great Delivery Service We researched washers and dryers thoroughly before buying, deciding that LG has the best combination of quality, features and cost. We decided against HE top-loaders because they are basically front loaders turned 90 degrees. HE washers use very little water, so front loaders are the best of the lot as the clothes get cleaner because they are agitated by dropping vs. direction reversals in top loaders that accomplish little effective agitation. Both HE top loaders and front loader use basket-in- tub construction with bearings pressed into the outer tub to support the rotating inner basket. LG models differ from most others in that they have a direct-drive motor with no pulleys or belts. The failure mode for most of these HE machines is bearing seal failure that allows water to get to the bearings. LG has fewer such failures than others. Whirlpool Duet machines have significant problems with early bearing failures. This machine is very quiet, cleans well and has fairly short cycle times compared to some others. It vibrates less than our previously owned Kenmore/Frigidaire front loader, yet spins at up to 1200 rpm. I has a pleasant end of cycle chime. The basket is huge, making up somewhat for relatively long cycle times compared to our old Kenmore/Frigidaire front loader. Incidentally, this is our third HE front loader unit, our Kenmores failing at 4.5 years and 8.5 years, both by main tub bearing failures. We hope to get five years of life out of this machine as no HE machine can last like our old top-loading Maytag that lasted 25 years with only a drvie belt and belt tensioning spring replacements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry Zen Our dryer motor burnt out after 12 years so we decided to purchase two new units. After extensive research, I was slightly hesitant to go with the front load mechanism. Agitator washers clean clothes better than any other. After all, that is the primary goal. But, other factors such as energy efficiency, cycle time, lifespan, and style convinced me to take the risk. Boy have I been surprised! Everything from muddy towels to sleeping bags to dainty dedicates comes out fresh and clean. I have only one con. The high speed spin vibrations resonate through the unit and can make noise. I am looking into vibration damping foot pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Outstanding Front Loading Washer - Whisper Quiet! The LG 3.6 cu. ft. front loading steam washing machine is fast, quiet, efficient, and looks like an airplane cockpit with the different LEDs, lights, sounds and other controls. It is sharp looking with the chrome/mirrored front door. This machine out performs our previous front loading washer in many ways. Weighing in at 200lbs., the machine is worth its weight as some other machines weigh can weigh 200+ to 300 lbs. or over. The machine has features that our previous front did not have which contributes to the LG's "ease of use". Overall, this machine ranks above any in its Class and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to replace or purchase a 'first-time' economical and energy efficient front loading washing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO QUIET! Highly Recommend! At 1st we were intimidated by all the features. So many options and bells/whistles. Keep the book close by and you'll be fine. My wife loves both the washer and dryer. It calculates the load for you (by weight/volume) and no guess as to how long to set! The clothes are amazingly cleaner than they were with my GE set I retired. Whites are white, towels smell fresh. Did I mention how quiet they are? OMG!
