Do not Buy!
by: Anonymous

Washer rattles every window in the house if you use the speed wash. Worked great for the first 6 months then I noticed a moldy smell to clean clothes. I cleand the machine and done all the proper maintenance and the odor lingers. I never closed the door. I tried Affresh and the new Tide tub cleaner. The machine has a tub clean cycle that uses bleach, afte running it 20+ times I gave up. I go the the coin laundry now. I purchased mine at Best Buy (Worst Buy). I also have the extended 5 year warrenty. Best Buy states mold is not a problem. The warrenty will only cover a mechanical problem. I paid $1200 for washer. Please DO NOT BUY LG! I have since found hundreds of complaints on the Web about LG wahsers and mold. I wish I would have read them before my purchase. Don't make my mistake. Stay away for LG and Best Buy.

VERY LONG WASH CYCLE
by: RALPH

THIS WASHER HAS VERY LONG WASH CYCLES. IT IS VERY RARE THE CYCLE WILL COMPLETE ON TIME. MY OVER RUNS GO ARE FAR AS 30 MINUTES PASS THE CYCLE TIME. I NOTICED IT DOESN'T WANT TO SPIN THE WATER OUT. I THINK THE MOTOR THEY USE IS TOO SMALL TO GET THE JOB DONE.
