Trashes clothes, forms mold, high upkeep
by: Anonymous

I have owned my WM3001R for 2 years. After the first year using powder detergent mold started to form between the drums which is impossible to clean. Our clothes and towels smelled like mold. Our toddler has eczema and I have mold allergies. So this is not acceptable. Tub cleanse cycle doesn't help. Bleach, Whirlout, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, vinegar added to washes doesn't help. I called LG and was told to fax in huge amounts of information within 24 hours including my original sales receipt. They claim to have never received it though we have proof they did. Regardless I had to email a photo of my receipt to LG after which I was told I would be contacted by extended warranty department for a one time service call. I never was contacted again by LG. This is a serious design flaw in the rubber door gasket that collects water between the drums. The mold is still there and I try diligently to wipe down every part of the washer I can reach but to no avail. Such an expensive machine with very high upkeep. The washer still trashes our clothes on the gentlest setting

bad product
by: Anonymous

I purchased the LG steam washer 2.5 years ago. I have had to have it serviced 7 times. I purchased the extended warranty and they will send a small check as it is now considered lemon. The repair company told me it is not an uncommon problem to have sensor issues which cause the machine to act as if there is a motor overload.

The company itself suffers with and inability to have social skills with assisting the consumer.What ever happened to serving the customer with ethics?

poor customer servcie
by: Henry

I purhcased an LG Steam Washer and Driyer less than 3 weeks ago. So far they are working fine. While learning how to use some of the controls, I found that 1 accessory was missing - the liquid detergent tray. I went back to Home Depot and found that they were going to charge me for the part. I called LG and they say the same thing......

My perspective is that I spent almost $3K and they can't send me a tray that probably costs 75 cents to make. I was given a number to Home Depot Parts and also call LG. LG was no help; they gave me info to their distributor (they're not 24x7 shop). The distributor have a website but I don't have a part number to perform a search and their site is not user friendly.

The product seem to be very good but the Corporate policies and customer service need a lot to be desired. No one told me that the part is missing and I have no idea that the part exists as part of the washer.

Typical of why the economy is they way it is. They shouldn't even call it customer service. There is none.
