  • LG Front-Loader LOOKS Good, But Beware of Dubious Durability

    Aug 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid feel, attractive design, low energy and water consumption
    Cons: Not dependable

    Summary: One of the great things about moving into a new house is getting to pick out all kinds of neat new things to fill it with. New curtains, new accessories, new fridge, new washer and dryer. The new toys are great fun...until they stop being so fun. ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice, quiet, uses little water
    Cons: Durability and ease of repair is poor - only a select few service this machine

    Summary: I have had this machine for about 2.5 years.  We use it frequently but only for small loads.  Lately, the spin cycle has been stopping with 4 minutes to go and won't go any further to completion.  We had a service call the other day and ... read more

    Pros: None that I can think of. We've tried everything to make it work without success
    Cons: - does not clean clothes well
    - problems with spincycle

    Summary: Don't buy this washer by: Lothar GleinThis washer was highly rated before we went out and bought it and unfortunately it did not measure up to it's rating. It does not clean the clothes as well as the previously owned ... read more

  • It sounded too good to be true and it is

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Water use
    Power use
    Cons: it broke after 2 months and flooded the basement

    Summary: When the bearings went on my 8yo Frigidaire front load it worked out being cheaper to buy a new machine than to have it fixed.  In fact this LG machine was on sale and cost me the same as the bearing job would have.  First Wash - ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Large capacity
    Efficient
    Relatively quiet
    Cons: Regular draining and other maintenance is kind of a pain

    Summary: I bought this machine in July 2008 and have had no problems so far.  I think it cleans great and is very efficient and great for big loads of clothes. I have experienced a slight musty smell on occasion but I generally chalk that up to my ... read more

  • I LIKE it, despite its learning-curve.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, tweakably-programmable, large capacity yet uses less water.
    Cons: A cup of bleach or quart of Bluette is tricky, must drain, non-reversible door.

    Summary: The LG WM2016C Front-Load Washer cleans my 10-12 weekly loads in the same time as my former top-loader (a four-year-old Maytag whose transmission went - even after my *trusted* repairman had resurrected it, a year earlier), using less water while ... read more

  • Beauty is only skin deep with the LG WM2016C

    Sep 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: looks great, good load capacity, clothes are clean, good price point if on sale,
    Cons: unacceptable vibrations, monthly drain issue, must keep door dry, door not reversible.

    Summary: the LG WM2016C is a masterful work of metal, pretty lights and sounds and what looks to be a promising clothes washing machine is over shadowed by an unacceptable level of vibration in all of the spin cycle settings. A typical front load washer ... read more

    Aug 18, 2009 by

    Pros: It saves water and gas; runs quiet; cleans clothes better.
    Cons: Gets stinky if you don't wipe it clean and leave door open! requires special detergent.

    Summary: When we decided to replace our old, inefficient washer, I looked over many reviews for washers, particularly high efficiency ones, and none looked really great. I decided the LG 3.5 cf washer was the best for the price. We purchased it several months ... read more

    Pros: Direct Drive Motor, Styling, Large Door
    Cons: Electronic Controls-- A weakness for a long term appliance.

    Summary: Thanks for all your posts! I'm using a surge protector thanks to the comments on computer failure mentioned here. I believe that most negative experiences reflected in these posts were due to getting a factory defective LEMON. This could happen ... read more

    Pros: Runs fine, gets clothes clean. Is quiet, does not vibrate that much. Saves dry time!
    Cons: Lacks retainer on a small drain hose - that 10 cents of duct tape fixed.

    Summary: This seems to be a very nice washing machine...but......I am writing this to give two tips.1. We bought the pedestal - $210.00  - because we thought it was needed to hold the machine and keep it stable. The delivery men told us it ... read more

    Pros: Very efficient, cleans well, large capacity, quiet, gentle on clothes.
    Cons: Should have a way to let the door stand open.

    Summary: Bought this washer about 8 months ago when our old Whirlpools were damaging our clothes.  I did not want to spend the extra money on the front loaders, but my wife talked me into it.  I would do it again in a heartbeat.  We save on average ... read more

    Pros: Sleek appearance. The shiny buttons are very cool. lol
    Cons: Water inlet errors, and parts replacement are a giant pita.

    Cons: Unreliable. Seven months later, it is un-fixable. LG customer service is sluggish and inefficient.

    Summary: I really loved this machine when I bought it about seven months ago. It washed great, had an easy to use panel and was quiet. I wasn't too thrilled about the potential of mold growth on the inner seal, but I would just leave the door open between ... read more
