Pros:None. No pros. No a one.

Cons:Stinky! Stinky! Stinky! Stinky! Stinky!
MUST drain!
Does NOT save water!
Does NOT save energy!

The Bottom Line: Machine never fully drains, old water sours inside.  Sour water mixes with next load and clothes ALWAYS smell like rotten eggs.
Poor product. Terrible design. Complete waste of $.


Worst purchase ever!!!

Be warned. The machine is designed so that the water NEVER completely drains, then it sits and SOURS, and then rinses your clothes with smelly water. Clothes ALWAYS small like rotten eggs. It's absolutely disgusting.

When LG was contacted, they told us to drain the machine, rinse with bleach, then with vinegar and then with hot water. What? Seriously? And quite ironic advice as I thought the whole purpose of the machine was to SAVE water...  LG acted as though draining the machine and rinsing was acceptable! Funny, they never mention any of this when they sell the machines. 

Now, I am forced to drain and clean the machine several times a week. A total pain. I have 3 kids and wash constantly/daily. Even with all of the rinsing and the constant use, clothes STILL come out stinky! Nothing like drying you face with a wash cloth that smells like rotten eggs. Yuck!

I absolutely HATE this machine! Feel completely ripped off. Will never, ever purchase an LG front loader again. I have to wonder if other front loaders ever experience this problem.  All I know is my LG is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!

Oh, and as for the "energy saving" dryer...it ALWAYS shuts of when the clothes are still completely damp. So, I  bypass the "energy saving" drying cycle and set it for more time, every time. So much for saving energy!

Thanks for nothing, LG.

Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it.
