The LG front loading washer died after four years of regular service. It was filled with black mould and couldn't be fixed. Paid 1,600 bucks for it. Piece of junk that couldn't be repaired. Same for my LG plasma TV. Bought at the same time the picture is shot. Yellow streaks through the picture. Paid 4,500 bucks. LG doesn't give a rats * about customer service. Basically they tell you to shove it. I will never have ANY LG or Korean products in my house after my experience. I didn't realize that they used to be called Goldstar which I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. I feel like I chump for being sucked in by their re-branding. Avoid their junk like the plague.
