Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Great Washer: I suggest......buy it

Moaaz 5/26/2024

Over the years Ive used various brands of washers and dryers. It was time to upgrade my set and several factors influenced my decision. The initial appearance and appeal seemed like a perfect fit for my laundry room. Regarding features when compared with similar brands this one stood out because it included all the modern features one could need such as delicate/wool steam heavy load and customizable load options. You can tailor the cycles to your preference and they yield tangible results. The machine runs pretty quietly and the interactive app is quite user-friendly with numerous options. Ive used Wi-Fi and app-connected machines before which were merely functional but this one works exceptionally well. The notifications are instant and the online features integrate seamlessly with its functionality. As I write this review I just received a notification that the wash cycle is complete. In summary it looks very stylish in the laundry room with a pleasing color combination. It can handle heavy loads without straining the drum runs quietly even on heavy settings is easy to use and most importantly cleans much better than any other brand Ive previously used. However there is room for improvement. The touch buttons while adequate could be a bit more sensitive to touch. And yes comparatively the energy consumption is lower.

Snagging clothes

Joanmr 4/21/2024

It washed good for about three months. Then all of a sudden it started snagging my clothes and sheets. It even does it on the gentle cycle. Has had two repairman out there and they give me ridiculous excuses of why its happening and they cant figure out why no one is listening to me I am more than on happy right now. I paid a lot of money for this washing machine.

Dont buy it. Youll regret it

Lacey1 1/17/2024

It washes clothes fine. However it smells awful right out of the box. It has an awful oil smell to it inside the drum. I thought it was because it was new and boxed up just needed to air out for a bit that was not the case at all. I tried every remedy out there vinegar leaving door open after washingalthough I knew it was not a mold issue and told them that I ran the cleaning cycle etc. I finally had the repair man out to tell me it was normal and I was using too much soap. Funny cause the machine came with the smell. I will never buy another LG product mostly because of their service next they dont seem to stand behind their product. My clothes smell like oil. Its ridiculous. Dont buy this machine. Its garbage

Cleaner Clothes with my new LG front load washer

Imagirl 12/8/2023

I love my new LG front load washer. It can wash much larger loads of laundry than my prior LG top load washer that I also thought was great until after 10 years it finally died. My laundry looks cleaner with this new washer. The dial to choose which laundry cycle you want to use could be improved. It does not have any mark or indentation on the knob that matches up to the cycle you want to select. It only has a light that comes on for making a selection. Thus if the light doesnt work there is no way to choose a wash cycle. Slightly confusing. My washer was delivered on 11/20/2023 and even though Ive only had it a short period of time I feel confident that I made a perfect choice.

I had the washer and dryer delivered and installed on Black Friday and have used both numerous times for clothes bed sheets and comforters. Theyve performed amazingly for all of the washing and drying. The machines are quiet and it seems like theyre also faster than our old ones. So far I am loving both

Third time is hopefully the charm

KSB2 11/11/2023

We are on our third washing machine since July 8. The first machine arrived with a dent in it so the installers wouldnt deliver it. The second machine exploded dented itself along with the washing drum dislodged and plastic side handles blown out. The third machine so far is working as one would hope.

Great unit just check door seal

Dan999 10/6/2023

So far this unit has been great but it took two tries. The first one arrived with a bad or poorly installed front door seal. Due to this it made a horrendous noise and then flooded my entire laundry room. The replacement unit has been flawless.

Best Washing Machine Ever Built

TomCat65 7/11/2023

Evelyn95 3/4/2023

I purchased washer and dryer in October 2022 and am so delighted with their features. It washes the cleanest of any washer I have ever had. I love the fact that they both send a message via my phone when the washer and dryer are completed. Saves me time and effort. They are also larger than my previous appliances.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

Gstewy 1/13/2023

My wife and I were very excited to receive our new LG Washer and Dryer. After reading the reviews of customers and checking out the reviews from Consumer Reports which rates our models as being Top Rated and Recommended we waited anxiously for them to arrive. First thing we washed was our Cal-King Comforter which would never fit in our 9 yr old 4.2 cu ft Washing Machine. Its always been a huge pain sending our Comforter out to be cleaned. What used to take about 2-3 days to be cleaned from our local Cleaners has now turned into 7-10 days due to Covid according to them. Now we are here to tell you our new LG 5.2 cu ft washer tackles our large Cal-King Comforter with ease And talk about Clean...all our loads of Laundry for some reason seems so much cleaner and brighter The use of the TURBO WASH feature I believe is credited for this but either way we have never been more impressed and completely satisfied with a Washer and Dryer purchase. Hats off and thank you to LG...definitely a home run

4 Stars for LG Front Loader Washer

maryandwyo 1/11/2023

I love the LG front loader. The only reason it didnt get a 5 is that the small drainage tube use to drain excess water is extremely slow. Took me 15 min. to get it drained. And when opening the cylinder next to it after a wash water pours out if it hasnt been drained.

Its definitely MEGA

mlosee 1/10/2023

I bought this set with the anticipation of doing fewer loads. With the Mega capacity in mind Ive easily gone from 6 loads a week to just 3. It even fits a King size comforter with room to spare for sheets. It pairs nicely with my phone in the LG app which gives notifications when loads are running and finish. Keeps me on top of laundry so I dont forget to swap loads and get behind. Has definitely lived up to my expectations and beyond
