The WM2101HW is a front loading washer with a large capacity (4.0 cubic feet). With a simple white finish, its features allow you to get clean laundry with the least amount of hassle.

Key features

- Nine wash options: prewash, water plus, stain cycle, rinse & spin, extra spin, and others allow for you to meet any laundry need. The additional tub clean option also saves you time and effort by automatically cleaning your machine’s drum, getting rid of any residue that can damage your machine and stain your laundry.
- Adjustable soil levels: stubborn stains and heavily-soiled fabrics are no longer a problem with this feature. Choose the level needed to ensure maximum cleaning.

With these and the other previously mentioned features, you can just load your laundry,
tap in your settings, and let the washing machine do the rest.

total vibration of the pipes
by: Totaly PISSED

we bought an LG front load from Sears, we thought we did well with our research and chose a good machine.right from the very first day it was making some noise when it was filling up and it would pulsate, it got worse by the day. Then i was told to install a water hammer arrestor to stop the vibrating pipes.That helped a bit but didn't stop it but it and it got progressively worse by the month.Then i took the hammer arrestor out and took it down to a plumbing place and was told that it was toasted!!! then one day i get a call from my wife to say that it was leaking!! this machine was only a couple years old for shit sakes, and then i read about some filter that has to be cleaned.We have had a top load Kenmore for over 20 years and didn't have any problems with it.The sales people should be better informed and pas on this information to their customers. the companies that put their name on them need to be more accountable for their junk!!!

won't stay balanced
by: Sheri

This machine will not stay balanced. It will rock your whole house. Service has been BAD on this machine. LG refuses to come out and check to see if something is broken on the unit. They only will say that it is the floor. Service says that you cannot have a HE machine on a wood floor. Funny thing is that I have had a whirlpool and a maytag on wood floors in other homes and did not have this problem. I recommend you not buy a LG.

complete lemon
by: colleen comden

this thing is terrible total lemon and Best Buy's extended warranty is not worth it make sure you read the fine print - they only cover the appliance if it's broken not if it's a hunk of junk - we have had LG and Best Buy people give us conflicting stories and each one pointing the finger at the other in the mean time we have had a flooded basement, ruined clothes, smelly clothes, and clothes that just don't come clean - after your purchase it they give you all these conditions and special care you have to give it - don't buy LG or from Best BUY

First day leak
by: A. M. in Belleville

Unbelievable. There is a leak from the bottom of the machine back left side. It is a steady drip. Drain hose dry where it goes into back of machine, but the drip is diretly below this area. I used the machine twice. Once for the recommended rinse-spin test for balancing purposes, then one load. The drip was significant with the entire cycle. Called The Brick in Belleville where I purchased it from and they are coming to take it away one week from now. Their initial suggestion was to send a repairman. I didn't pay this much to have a repaired machine damaging my floor.

smell problem
by: Anonymous

I experienced a smell sour problem in my front
load washer. I used the washer cleaner and had
only temporary solution.
I took off the bottom front of machine and there
is a filer in front of pump and it was a mold mess
and smell terrible. I cleaned it out and then used the cleaning cycle on machine and that as
solved the problem.
These companies sell these machines and never tell you there is a filter before the pump. I believe they want you to call a service man to
clean this.
I hope this saves someone else , and they to
can eliminate the smelly washer problem.
