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.

Good and Bad

Matt R_55 1/3/2024

Initially thought this was a solid unit that was going to last us a long time. Within the last few months the door gasket has developed a very bad case of mold. Ive tried keeping the door open after cycles tried wiping the unit down to dry it tred vinegar to make it go away and nothing works. Ive read elsewhere that front loaders can have this problem but I am confused why the unit would run for a while weve had it several years and then have this problem. To get a repair guy to come out is in the $200-400 range. Ive looked at the parts manuals and the part is around $100. Kinda dont want to spend that much for a part I could probably replace myself. Its not a bad washer overall but I am not sure I would buy a frontloader again

Diagnosing

Arod868 11/18/2023

I called in for technical help. My washer was displaying an OE ERROR. Customer support ran through diagnostics and told me it was working properly. After 2 call backs and on the phone at least an hour each time I finally received a number for a technician. Come to find out the pump was not working anymore. It was replaced and now is working properly.

Not happy.

Revb 9/11/2023

Ive had this machine for going on 3 years. When its working it is great. The problem is that it appears to be fragile. We have had several pumps replaced and repairs take forever months to get completed. If it is advertised as heavy duty it should not breakdown on a regular basis.

Worst washer I have ever owned

Helen Stevens 5/27/2023

3 different repair companies have come out to repair the leaking washer. The door has been changed the seal around the door has been changed and other parts. The washer is still leaking. My floor has been ruined. Purchased from Lowes. I have reached out to Lowes LG numerous times they have done nothing.

Good but developed a leak 11 months in.

B in sc 5/14/2023

We like our washer. But it developed a leak. I had to call lg repair twice and each time go through an hour of checking things which I had done before I called. The first time they put the work order under our dishwasher and I had to start the process over. The issue was internally the exit hose started rubbing on a moving bc part. The tech said it may have shifted during transport. I wonder how many will have the same issue. The movement wore a hole in the hose.

Finally got it figured out

PERECT SMALL LAUNDRY ROOM 11/5/2022

Now that a big issue has been resolved I love this washer. The first few times I washed my clothes came out steaming even when I used cold wash. After 10 days and many trials we figured out the washer hoses had been installed wrong switched hot and cold lines. I love all the features and how clean less wrinkled and fresher smelling my clothes come out compared to my old washer.

William Brown 10/6/2022

My wife and I bought an older version of this model in 2018 and loved it. We loved it so much that when we bought a new house we purchased the 2021 version and its still just as amazing. These really are the best washer dryer pair you can get.

Czoo 9/14/2022

I bought this washing machine back in July. My other LG was a top loader about 10 years old. I have to say that this machine is a beast. I love watching it and all the options for wash settings. My clothes have never seemed this clean or smelled so fresh Thanks LG
