About - LG WM2250C[W]

The LG WM2250C[W] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, front-loading washing machine models like the WM2250C[W] 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.

Moldy Door Gasket

Comment:
The mold growth on the door gasket is out of control and difficult to clean deeply. In reading other comments here I do not see anyone else complain about mold. After washing cloths or bedding in a moldy washer, are they really clean?
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've had this machine for about 18 months and love using it. My old front loading machine couldn't clean as well as this one, plus this machine has a wonderful hand wash/wool setting I use frequently.<br /><br />Our house is 60 years old and we do not have any pipe vibrations so this is not an issue for us. <br /><br />Regarding cleaning the drain pump filter, I've only done this twice since owning the machine and it was not an issue either perhaps because we have soft water here. I do use the tub clean with a special powder about once every two months so this keeps the machine clean and fresh.
