Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Bad Drain Pump

iKnowLGwashers 7/5/2024

It works well but the drain pump is bad. Most people I know who own this actually 100 of them have had to replace the pump.

Tremendous washing machine

One of many adopted 5/4/2024

My washer is now over 10 years old. Has been washing clothes almost non stop. My family grew immensely because we became adoptive parents of less fortunate kids 28 in total during the time this machine was owned. I inherited the washer once the parents moved to a smaller home after retirement

problem solving assistance

Bmnk 2/2/2024

So far so good The washer has been working fine with various load sizes since ew bought it we havent really run into any issues other than perhaps how easy it is to clean in the area where the door closes and opens where the rubber material is. We had a sharpie fall in there and we didnt even notice for a long time but that might not be the washers fault. My only issue is that when a problem did come up the instructions on what exactly was wrong were incorrect. I checked the different instructions I called and then I reached out to the numbers i was given but they all mentioned different things. My father was able to fix it and it was something else entirely from what customer support and the Q/A for fixing things said. Also its a little too convenient that problems came up near the end of warranty but again that might not be purely the washers fault.

Easy to operate

Easter Lake 1/15/2024

We purchased this LG washer to replace our other one. We were happy with our last one and given this one was on sale it seemed like a no brainer. Home Depot delivery was free prompt and professional. Have done several loads of clothes and it seems to spin dryer than last one which means we dont have to leave in the dryer nearly as long.

LG Washing Machine

Eburley 1/8/2024

The washer has broken down twice since I purchased it. It is not a good product. Ive owned several washers and never had problems with them. The LG washer is supposedly more advanced than my previous washers yet has cost me hundreds of dollars in repairs and countless hours of inconvenience. Im a parent with two small children so a non-functioning washing machine is a big problem. I decided to replace the washer instead of spending more money on repairs again.

Works well little loud

Steve77777 11/14/2023

I bought this a couple months ago and everything works well just like our old one that we were replacing. The only weird thing is this newer model is louder than the older model which wasnt to be expected but other than that it washes clothes.

Dont buy

Katmh 11/4/2023

So disappointing. Ive had the machine repaired $300 because it wont empty and I end up having to spin a second time. It still happens often. Also emptying the drum through the short tube at the bottom is messy and difficult. The service rep was helpful but it took over 30 minutes to empty. Ive never had a washing machine that Ive had to do this.

Pump breaks and smells build up

RZ82 8/22/2023

In 8 years I have had to replace the pump 3 times the first time naturally outside my warranty window. And despite always always always leaving the door open after a cycle the mold buildup around the door and smell with the drum is disgusting. I will never buy a front load washer or an LG anything again.

GREAT HELP IN FIXING MY WASHER PROBLEM

sandra39 7/26/2023

I had a load of clothes in my washer and it would not spin enough to put the clothes in the dryer. The water would not drain. The agent that helped me that was so kind and patient. She sent me a set of instructions telling me how to drain the water from the washer then clean the filter. I did it and it worked right away. It saved me money from having a repair person to come and do this. THANKS TO THIS AGENT

Solid quality appliance

EhrenZoner 5/14/2023

Ive had this for about 7 years now and I have been mostly happy with it. Its a little tricky to keep the rubber door liner clean: you need to be diligent about running the tub clean regularly and wipe around that door opening I did need to have the drain pump replaced recently but this was an inexpensive repair.

Vibrates excessively leaks wont drain properly

mark6851 11/29/2022

We purchased this washer approx 3-4 years ago. The washer has continually gotten worse as time as gone on. The repairman has been out numerous times to look at it and finally a repairman came yesterday and told us we could only wash the equivalent of 3 towels at a time. It will only wash 1 pair of jeans at a time. it will wash about 5-6 shirts at a time. It would take days to do the laundry for 3 people each week. The washer is a 4.3 cu ft capacity which should be about 16 pounds of laundry or so. The 3 towels weight is 4 pounds. This is utterly ridiculous to say that it is because of the weight The basket is so out of balance it has scored the front door. I am waiting on it to implode from the shaking. We have to continually reposition the load within the washer and as soon as it spins it is out of balance again. The washer also will not drain properly we have to continually mop up in front of the machine and it keeps happening no matter of the load size.
