LG appliances suck.

So we bought these top of the line LG appliances. Steam washer & dryer. French door fridge, bottom freezer, ice in the door. They all suck. Washer misses the easiest stains. Dryer produces the least unironable permenant press hunk of mess. Refer freezes anything in the bottom drawer. Ice machine is close to useless. I spent what I thought was max for top of the line thinking you get what you pay for. Not w/LG.  Don’t waste your money.

  1. My fridge is rusting thru from what I feel was improper preping of the steel before paintingh. I found out there is no one in my service area to look at this. 2 1/2 years ago when I purchased the refrigerator we also purchased a microwave and dishwasher. One week ago we bought lg washer and dryer steam top of the line. The only majoe appliance not lg is our range. Since speaking to Lewis and his manager Carla who basicly said they will do nothing about this since it is out of warranty. I feel that no appliance should rust at 2 1/2 years with no damage causing this. You’ll be hearing from me more as I advertise your product. My friends, family and anyone that wants to listen on the net will be a more informed shopper.

  2. Thanks for the info Sid, for the price I paid, I’d probably be happier with a Sub Zero or a Thermador. I’ve seen 20yr old refers with no rust, at 2 1/2 yrs, it’s a manufacturing flaw.

  3. About 8 years ago, we bought an LG washer and dryer. Recently, the motor went out. It is under warranty for 10 years. We looked up on LG’s website two authorized service companies. We called them and both had appointments that were 2 to 3 weeks out. We couldn’t wait that long. We called a company who could do the work within a day or two and they diagnosed the problem as the direct drive motor. They ordered the part from sears, a reputable distributor. They replaced the part and I paid them for the part, labor, and service call. Then I called LG to initiate a reimbursement for the part.
    I wasn’t expecting to be reimbursed for the service or labor. They told me that I should have contacted LG when we found out that the service wait time was unreasonable and without doing that they would not reimburse me for the part. They said they couldn’t guarantee that the part was from an authorized parts warehouse and the work done wasn’t done by an authorized repair company. They expected for use to have read the warranty info from paperwork I am not even sure we have anymore, note, it was purchased 8 years ago.
    I went the round with the supervisor and she was adamant they would not cover the part. I then told her that this was not a requirement when my fridge compressor went out and I had to call for service. I just called a repair guy and he gave me the proper paper work and receipt for the work and I turned it over to LG and got reimbursed. I told her that I didn’t understand the hypocrisy. To cover one situation and not the other is ridiculous. Again, she said LG would not cover the part because we did not call them directly when there was a problem with getting an authorized service guy to do the work.
    I asked if I could get this supervisors car, I wanted to keep it for 3 weeks and by the way, it was up to her to figure out how to get to work and back without it. I said, if she had to she would most likely call and get a rental if it was that important to get to work and back. Well, I said waiting for a washer to be repaired and wait for 3 weeks was unacceptable. She said that I should have read the warranty information before contacting anyone.
    I believe at this point that they are finding any loophole in their warranty so they don’t have to cover repair costs even in the most unusual situation. I would think no one would wait 3 weeks to get a major appliance fixed. With the outright attitude of the supervisor and her not willing to even discuss a compromise, they are not worthy of anyone’s business or loyalty.
    My suggestion is..don’t buy LG appliances. They will find any way to get out of paying for things they should rightfully cover. So we have made a decision to buy non-LG appliances from now on. GE, Samsung, Kenmore, here we come and we look forward to a better experience.
    I will continue to post bad reviews anywhere and everywhere I can to tell people not to buy from LG.
