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.

Clothes are wet sometimes after the cycle

Neil Patel 007 1/15/2023

Clothes are wet most of the times after the cycle is completed and have to redo. Waste of time and energy.

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

Great washer with a lot of great features. The size is perfect and fits a lot of clothes in one cycle. Can be connected to wi-fi and controlled through LG ThinQ app which is very convenient. Overall we love this washer.
