All my clothing began to look like "floor rags". I paid OVER $3, 500 for an LG navy blue washer/dryer combo & pedestals - about 5 or 6 years ago. I have NEVER EVER been so disappointed in a washer/dryer set in my whole life. I was so excited to use this machine as it had the steam cycle on it and it was "top-of-the-line" at that time. My clothing came out disgustingly DINGY, DINGY, and more DINGY. I tried everything. The super expensive detergents - nope, did not work. I tried putting in a little less detergent then a little more - NOPE, "nothing worked". I tried adding whiteners, bleaches, baking soda, vinegar and even went so far as to add a "water softener" into my home. NOPE, still no improvement! What a total waste of money these appliances were and not to mention what a mess they made of my laundry! I ended up giving them to my daughter and she hates them even more than I did. She had a baby and she (like myself) likes to see our "whites to be white" and baby cloths colors should be pretty and vibrant! What a friggin mess they made of all her baby cloths. I went back to using a "top-load" machine and immediately saw my laundry return to normal. My daughter is now in the process of purchasing another set of "top-load machines" and we are going to try and "unload" these SUPER LEMONS. Oh, and the dryer...well that was another story. The motor burnt out within the warranty of the machine. The service man blamed it on the builder for having too many bends in the elbows to vent the air from the dryer. These two LG Products have made our two families VERY UNHAPPY with their products and neither family will ever buy another LG product. Oh yes, and the "stinkiness of the washer" - yup we got that too...nasty!
