Pros Uses Less Detergent and Energy.
Cons A little more water in the drum is needed in the Regular cycles.
Recommended it? No

I purchased the LG Washer and Dryer 6 years ago. After about 3 months, I noticed that my clothes were retaining a musty smell. These were clothes that were extremely dirty with grime and sweat. After using all the cycles and options, the sweat smell remained. At this point, I just analyzed the... Read full review »


LG WM0532HW Foul Smell

bymsuddaby Jan 2, 2008
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Washes delicates and hardy clothes both gently and thoroughly
Cons Foul sewer gas/mold type smell both during and not-during use
Recommended it? No

I love the way this washer cleans my clothes so thoroughly but the foul smell during use and during non-use is unbearable. It actually smells like sewer. If I don't get my clothes out as soon as the cycle is completed they stink and I have to rewash. I have found washing a load of rags on sanitary... Read full review »

Pros High capacity, excellent cleaning.
Cons Drain tube design.
Recommended it? Yes

Two years ago we moved and needed to buy a new washer and dryer set (the old ones had to stay where they were). I was very interested in getting a front loader since I have 3 boys and we do a lot of laundry. I did some research, weighed my options and my budget and finally settled on the LG...

Pros Clothes physically clean.
Cons Smell factor is awful.
Recommended it? No

I've had my WM0532 for 2 years. Although it does an excellent job cleaning, the mildew smell is overwhelming. My towels are especially affected. What I have discovered, is that after every load of laundry I do, I have to pull the drain plug and empty the accumulated water. If I don't do this, the... Read full review »

Pros Reduced water/ detergent use, sanitary, washer's spin force wrings out clothes well
Cons Frequent electrical issues, sensor problems, limited and unfriendly customer service

I bought the washer/ dryer pair at Best Buy about 3 years ago to replace an old mismatched GE washer and Kenmore dryer. We chose the LG for the reviews and features; energy saver, sanitary cycle (my son and I both need this for our smelly shirts), front load (our laundry was in the kitchen so I... Read full review »

Pros Works as well as any other washer I've had, When it's not being repaired
Cons Won't stop breaking down.
Recommended it? No

Works great when it's not broken. It has had a problem on 5 different occassion now. I've owned it for 3 years. Bestbuy came out yesterday and marked it as a lemon. Said they'd prefer not to waste any more time repairing it. I luckily bought a 5 year warranty. Bestbuy is replacing it with the... Read full review »

Pros Works great! Read review
Cons Expensive and hard on the back to load. Normal for all front loaders.
Recommended it? Yes

I have had this model for 2 years now and it is still performing admirably. As with most other front loaders, cloths get clean, low water consumption, high spin speed extracts water well. Gas bill is lower for both hot water and for less dryer time.
Rated excellent for ease of use. Add soap,... Read full review »

Pros Gets out stains my top loader could not touch. Clothes come out damp dry.
Cons Instructions are poor

Looks good, feels good and cleans great! Clothes come out damp dry and it will cut my drying bill by more than half. This is a close-out at Home Depot and I got it for $639.00 this weekend. They had 2000 of them in the system on Saturday. The store was selling it for $699 and there was a ? ten... Read full review »

Pros QUIET, Large capacity, large door, water miser, high speed spin.
Cons None
Recommended it? Yes

Read the review by Nexus7 for all the details, an excellently detailed review.
The washer & dryer(DLG0332W) was delivered yesterday(2-10-05). The washer swallowed down 14 heavy towels and never missed a beat. If it used 12 gallons of water I'd be surprised. The wash cycle took 54 minutes.

Pros Child lock! Thorough gentle cleaning, powerful spin cycle, uses less water & detergent
Cons Pricey HE detergent; loud rattle on high spin cycle

Purchased this washer from Costco for $650. It was $150 less than the same model at BestBuy. (I did buy the gas dryer from BestBuy as Costco only had electric units). They also matched the price of Costco and said they would have done the same for the washer! Just ask.

Anyway, it is... Read full review »

Pros Clothes get cleaner, wear out less. A more sensible technique to washing clothes.
Cons Price, but only as much as the top-line conventionals; may go down as sales increase.
Recommended it? Yes

So it's been 6 months since I've this machine, and I thought it's time to write a review. Also, LG has new models out at Best Buy (with the control panel on the front) and the 0532, 2032, 2432, etc. might be going on sale more frequently, so people might need opinions! I should mention also that... Read full review »
