Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:
Pros : Gets the clothes clean using only half the amount of detergent shown on the bottle.Runs very quiet and smoothly. Also the first front loader I've owned that doesn't get stuck on the spin cycle due to out of balance load. Cons : Water temp is a bit on the cool side. Have to use the hot wash setting to warm wash water. Warm setting uses tepid water temp.Doesn't add enough water to get the clothes wet on the rinse cycles. Clothes are barely more than damp and fabric softener doesn't work. Must use water plus modifier to get enough water for rinses. This means that I can't use the extra rinse modifier because you cannot use water plus and extra rinse at the same time. Getting all the soap out of the clothes is very important to me due to allergies. Overall I'm satisfied with the machine and would have given it 5 stars if not for the rinse water level issue.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The smell gets worse over time
from Tampa, FL, United States
I love how the washer uses so little water but the smell is really bad. Even if you clean it regularly it just stinks.

Front Loader LG Model
Purchased LG because of the name. Very disappointed.
Easy to use
from Denver, CO, United States
Bought this on a recommendation, not entirely happy with its performance. Love the signal that the cycle is complete. Does the final rinse in very HOT water (per LG, to rinse out all the detergent), but I do NOT want my cold wash clothes rinsed in hot water-wears out and fades them. No option to eliminate that rinse Loud noise when it pulls water from the pipes.
Glad I decided on this one

I replaced an old top loading washer. Was on the fence whether I wanted a front loader. I heard they could get musty smelling. I've had this washer for 3 months. No issues. It had a latch that keeps the door closed but not airtight. This lets the washer breath. I'm very happy with the way my clothes are coming out. Runs quiet.

Thought there would be a huge learning curve, but the machine is easy to operate. We are pleased with the purchase.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this washing washer. I previously had a top load agitator washer for the past 20 years. I had a learning curve to understand the features and how to use this washer for the first week. Ease of Use: The dashboard looks complicated with all the features and options. Because the buttons donâ€™t line up exactly with the dashboard, I thought I had to adjust the many options for each load. Then I realized itâ€™s actually very easy. Simply chose the fabric youâ€™re washing (i.e. towels, cotton, delicates) and the washer adjusts the water temperature, spin speed, and soil level. You are able to override these presets. The washer automatically adjusts the water level, so you donâ€™t have to worry about that. You use very little soap; the average full load is less than 4 tablespoons of soap. There is a guide built in the dispenser to help with this. Apparently it is very bad to use too much soap, so less is always better. Sound: Some reviews I read stated that this washer is quiet. I donâ€™t find that itâ€™s any quieter than my old top load agitator washer; however, my top load washer sounded more like white noise with more of a consistent sound though it was loud. This LG is just as noisy but it makes different unique sounds throughout during the cycle. When it washes it sounds like whooshing which you canâ€™t hear unless you are nearby; when it gears up to spin â€" it sounds like an airplane engine starting up in the distance; when itâ€™s spinning full speed, you can definitely hear it, expecially when spinning on high. I donâ€™t think I could sleep with the washer running even though my bedroom is not located near the washer. That others think this LG model is quiet is a mystery to me. Perhaps mine is defective, but it is working fine and does its job. Quality: Clothes come out clean and fresh despite using very little water. Itâ€™s nice to have different options of fabric to choose from. This model has a steam function along with allergen and sanitary. I donâ€™t have issues with allergies, but itâ€™s nice to be able to get the sheets super clean if you want to. Sanitary would be a must if you have a baby. The door is solid and well built. Time: It doesnâ€™t seem to me that it takes too much longer to do a load than what I was used to with the top loader. The nice chime after the load completes is helpful. Pedestals: I couldnâ€™t afford the expensive pedestals when I bought the washer, but I am glad I didnâ€™t not purchase then. If you have bad knees, then itâ€™s needed as you will need to bend down to get the clothes out of the washer into the dryer, but if they are right next to each other, you only bend once. Also, without the pedestals, the washers are low enough that you can use them as shelves to fold laundry, store soap, etc. I keep the soap right next to the soap dispenser and the other area for folding laundry. Maintenance: This washer will have maintenance compared to a top loader. If you donâ€™t want to have to deal with mildew, it is recommended that after you conclude washing for the day that you wipe the seal and door. I keep microfiber rag on the washer which makes it handy. One of the selling points of this LG is that it has a magnet that keeps the door cracked open so that it can dry inside. The soap dispenser always leaves some water in it so I just keep it open until the next load. It is also recommended to clean the tub monthly. You can buy specific tub cleaners. Over all I am pleased with the purchase I made. Since this is an older model, I received a great deal. I am not sure why, but laundry is more fun.
Love LG front load washers

This is my third LG front load washer, and each one gets better as far as standard features. I LOVE the Allergiene setting -- my husband and I both have serious allergies and washing our bedding weekly on this setting really cuts down on the problems. Energy efficient, reliable, and cleans beautifully.
