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.

LG washer front load

Trekkie4ever 8/29/2023

I have used the LG 5.0 white washer for 6 weeks then one day it would not turn on-- trouble shooted what I could. Went to LGs website did an online chat with a rep -- this was on a Sunday by the way... after determining not an outlet issue repair was scheduled for 3 days later on a Wednesday. The potential repair parts were UPS shipped to my house and arrived on Monday The repair rep called me when en route as requested was professional and repaired my washer with the parts that had been shipped. While I do NOT want an appliance to quit working after 6 weeks of use the repair process was swift and smooth. LG backs its products from my experience. The washer cleans the clothes and removes water from them with less time in the dryer. I also purchased a pedestal and love the capacity of the drum and can get the clothes out without breaking my back. Got this unit on sale at major holiday-great price. *** NOTE to future buyers of front loaders-- KEEP the shipping bolts that are removed from the drum by the delivery people. You will need them in the future if you ever move your washer

Best washer ever

Bee friend 8/23/2023

My LG 5.0 cu ft washer is the best ever I have had several washers thru the years and this one is my favorite without any doubt. It is simple to use and very quiet. The large tub has been awesome. A big quilt fits in great. Having the 5.0 cu ft tub cuts down on the number of loads of laundry per week because I can get so much more in it. That ends up saving money on electric and laundry products. I would definitely recommend this machine and even if you dont buy this model you should go for the larger tub.. I am very happy with my LG washer.

What a fantastic machine

George0807 8/14/2023

I bought this 3 weeks ago to replace my 17-year-old LG Tromm. I loved my LG Tromm so much it was such a workhorse and it lasted forever - I never had a service call on it in the 17 years that I owned it Knowing that I knew I had to get another LG machine. I decided to go slightly bigger in capacity so I can do bigger loads. I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase. The speedwash function takes only 15 minutes from start to finish - great for those items that dont need such a lengthy wash and the machine is so incredibly quiet - I didnt even know it was on I have not been paid for this review and I have not received the washing machine free for a review.

A washer that works

MM5893 8/10/2023

We previously had an LG washer that was the worlds worst washer. We had to plan hours to wash a load of clothes because it constantly went uneven no matter what was in there. LG came out to replace something they knew was wrong with the machine sometime in the 1st couple of years after we bought the washer and said to call if it still didnt work. The problems continued. I called several times to report the continuation of the uneven issues and was told by a nasty customer service rep too bad the warranty was up. When it finally went started leaking we were so glad to have buy another washer. We really should have done this sooner because it wasted a ton of electricity and water as well as our time. I never thought Id buy another LG anything but when I went shopping I looked for the cheapest front load washer I could get which happened to be LG and added a warranty plan. We finally have a washer that works. It is basic and nothing special but we can finally wash clothes in a normal amount of time and the savings in electricity is noticeable.

LG Front Loader Washer

J R M 8/6/2023

This appears to be a good easy to use washing machine. Please note that this new washer opens to the left rather than the right like our old LG. Depending on the configuration of your laundry room this may be very problematic.

Terrible experience

Gman56 7/23/2023

Bought this washer about a week ago and it has not operated correctly ever. Numerous error codes. Getting LG to send tech has been VERY FRUSTRATING. Terrible customer service. Have now talked to other appliance dealers who recommend not buying LG appliances. LG trying to find repair shop that will accept the repair. Supposedly they found one after another refused. Cannot find part numbers for this washer model number.

Adri105 7/8/2023

I love LG washers This one is great and does a great job. My only regret is that I didnt pay attention that it has not the Sanitary option like my old one. It was my fault to not pay attention to this important detail but still a great product.

Good machine except for a couple of things

Phil 66 7/7/2023

The dryer doesnt have a light when you open the door. Also the pedestals arent high enough to hold large bottles of laundry soap. Softener or bleach. Also there is no top that goes across both machine so you can fold clothes on.

Washer works great to clean cloths

Liz1000 6/27/2023

Bought a house and needed to purchase a washer/dryer specifically a stacked set to fit in the space built for it. After some research landed on this set because of reviews size to fit into space and sale price. Works well so far when cleaning clothes. Quiet and doesnt shake Has a nice little trill that will notify you the cycle is done. We use detergent sheets and have had no issue with those working well in this washer. Ive washed several loads of clothes towels sheets comforters and all have washed well.

Stan_S 6/15/2023

My old LG washer and dryer served us well for 14 years. So when it was time to replace them we went with this washer and a companion dryer. It is an excellent performer very well balanced and quiet. User interface is simple and logical. Energy efficiency was a big selling point for us.

The owners manual that came with the washer is junk. Trying to get a good downloadable one online was complicated and impossible. Then trying to register was complex as I wasnt allowed to get my model right. I still dont know if it is listed right.
