About - LG WM2650H[W]A

The LG WM2650H[W]A is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, front-loading washing machine models like the WM2650H[W]A are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing performance:
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)

Energy efficiency:
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.

Water efficiency:
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.
About This Brand

South Korean company LG was the first to market with steam washers; the company claims its machines provide real steam (created by a steam generator). The latest wrinkle from LG is what it calls the Allergiene cycle. That cycle, says LG, reduces and removes 95 percent of dust mites and pet dander from a load. LG washers range in price from $900 to $1,600.

Comment:
This was the worst purchase I have made. The washer broke down constantly. It reeked from mildew. Oh, and they neglect to tell you this: Almost NO local repair shops will service an LG appliance. And I live outside DC, not a small town. Do not buy.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've owned a front loader since 2005, so they're not new to me. Since it's just my husband and me, we don't generate a lot of laundry. The first machine leaked after 7 days. Lowe's replaced it. The second one leaked after 4 days. They both leak in the same spot under the machine towards the back left corner. It's too heavy to move so I can't mop up the water. Now I have drywall damage too. Do yourself a favor - don't buy this washer.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am a senior, but not a frail women. I thought I had done my research and when I saw this in the store we purchased it. What I never tried out was to open and close the door. The result is that the door is so difficult to open at the end of a cycle that I have to pull with all my strength to open it. Sometimes I thought I would have to get my husband to do it for me. If I had known it would be like this, I would have purchased a different washer.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
