Would not buy this machine again ever.

Totally disgusted 8/17/2019

This machine is very sensitive to any type of unevenly distributed load. During the wash cycle the clothes shift and whenI walk into the laundry room invariably the UE is present on the display. UGH This definitely was not the case with my previous washer and I am sick of it. Also the water level is inadequate in the early phase of the wash cycle. I love the dryer but would not purchase this washer if I knew then what I know now. Run dont walk to another washer when you are shopping for a washer.

uE and Bleach Dispenser

Cynthia123 8/13/2019

Bought this 6 years ago having the same problems as others: uE despite balancing loads. If I dont babysit the machine it simply stops and when I return the uE is flashing. The rinse and spin cycles seem to be messed up. Excess water use. The area around the bleach dispenser is rusting out. I thought it was me. So I used some Rustoleum spray paint but the rusting continues. Generally love LG: have a dryer refrigerator and several TVs. Puzzled by the dysfunction of this previously excellent product.

Worst appliance ever.

Repsand 8/7/2019

I have had this washer for several years now. It is finally old enough that I can justify replacing it. Since day one this thing has been giving me the dreaded uE error. I frequently have to stand at the machine and baby sit it to get it to finish loads. I have to arrange the contents set the machine to spin only and then hope it will finish the spin cycle without starting to fill the tub again. Its funny how a supposed High Efficiency washer uses 20 - 30 gallons of water in an attempt to rearrange the items in it. The second problem is also a common one the rust around the bleach dispenser. On mine there is now metal missing around the plastic dispenser because it is rusting so bad. This appliance is absolutely the worst appliance of any kind I have ever purchased in my life. The engineers who designed this thing should be ashamed of themselves. I will never buy another LG appliance again. In fact my last three appliances were from more common American brand and I have been satisfied with them. I specifically excluded LG when shopping for appliances.

Very disappointed

Baseball mom 5/27/2019

Bought the washer/dryer set in 2013 and have had several issues with the washer. It seems to always be off balance even during the tub clean cycle. Uses way too much water to get balanced causing issues with our septic tank leach field. It is rusted out around the bleach dispenser and leaves a residue on my clothes. And yes I am using the recommend amount of detergent. Made several calls to customer service with no results. I dont have any issues with the dryer however I WILL NOT be buying another LG product

Completely Rusted out after 4.5 years of use

mahusak 11/4/2018

I loved this machine but...

Crak10 10/28/2018

I loved this machine but right before its 5th year the control panel died. The machine was essentially no good and to replace the control panel was going to cost me Almost as much as a new machine. I did replace it with another LG because Otherwise it was an excellent washer. I hope I have better luck.

Poor quality

Jeff1207 9/26/2018

We have had this washer for a while now and am very displeased with the quality. It seems that every load at some point goes to UE or uneven. No matter how we load it it always goes uneven I have read on blogs that there is a problem with the electronics board and its hard to get anyone to take this issue seriously.

Should last longer than 5 years

BigMac1022 8/11/2018

I purchased this washing machine at home depot in June of 2013. I also purchased the 5 year extended service contract. It performed great for the last 5 years and now that its 2 months outside of the extended service contract it is clunking and grinding. It also displays the LE code. We have tried different size loads and washes but it still makes a terrible noise. Very disappointed with LG. A washer should last longer than 5 years. I will never purchase another LG appliance or electronics item again.

Would not recommend.

HeyJackie 7/10/2018

The particular washer I purchased definately does not live up to my expectations. From day one washer clean cycle does not complete when in use. Small loads never complete cycle without error code. Clothing does not appear clean. Stains are still visable such as sweat deodorant etc. Wash times are much longer than older machines with tub agitators.

Washer does not drain constantly out of balance

Wayne J 7/2/2018

We have never been more disappointed in an appliance. 50 of our loads have out of balance issues. As an example it took us 4.5 hours to wash the sheets from our king size bed due to out of balance issues. We understand LGs small load and same size items instructions but this is ridiculous. Additionally upon completion of its wash cycle the washer leaves the detergent receptacle and fabric softener receptacle half full of water 75 of the time.

Junk

Cat1012 4/14/2018

I have struggled with this washer since it was a year old. Could not get a cycle of any laundry load small or large and with similar weights to complete. Every single load gets the UE error. A load of laundry could keep going a whole day - wasting tons of water. I have had it fixed several times and still the same problem. After 3 years of dealing with this junk model - I will have to dump it. Will not buy LG again.

Malfunctioned before 5 years old

mary l 3/23/2018

Bought this washer almost 5 years ago. It ran fine until about 6 months ago. Just cant stop the UE errors even with very small loads on low spin cycles.

Horrible - Do not buy

Michelle M 3/14/2018

I got this washer since the first one I received broke in the first six months. This washer is terrible. It never completes a load. It always says UE unbalanced and it takes hours for a load. Do not buy this washer

Pile of You Know What

ELJP 3/1/2018

This is the worst washing machine ever. I cannot even get an empty load to complete. No matter if you have 1 or 20 items it constantly stops and say UE Uneven Load. You spend hours trying to get the load to complete. You pull items out or add items. It can take a whole day for wash cycle. And what is incredible it is out of warranty. But yet it has been doing this for years. Cant seem to get service on this item. If I could I wouldnt even give this one star.

Garbage-Would give it NO STARS

Mommakin 2/2/2018

I do not consider a major purchase like a washing machine to be a disposable item after only 3 1/2 years. Even more disappointing was finding out that LG would not approve a repair for a known issue with the software in this washer. As per their own release to service repair technicians. Contacted a local repairman who informed us that fixing it would cost more than replacing it. I have owned two LG items and both of them were shoddy and unreliable. I am done with this company FOREVER. I cant believe they have any recommendations by Consumer Reports-perhaps they should evaluate the life span of these products before they call them a good product.

The pump

Fairy56 1/28/2018

There is a terrible smell after using this washer repeatedly. My Husband and I took the back off to try and where the smell was coming from and the pump blades are not big enough to sling all water out of it so the water lays in and around the pump and it stagnant.
