LG Informative - LG Washers Suck
My advice: Do not buy any LG. We got ours at Home Depot about a year ago. What they don't tell you about their front load machines is that you have to drain the water out of the bottom and run an empty cycle with bleach, otherwise the water will become stagnant, and your washer smells like rotten eggs. Only problem is that you have to do this about once a week. We maybe use it once a day, or once every two days, and it's just for two people.
Another person in our office has the same issue, and after asking Home Depot has had some (don't know how many) complaints. I emailed LG, but seems their pretty worthless.
I, my kids, and anyone that asks, will never buy another LG product again.
