    LG TROMM Front Loading Washing Machines

    Anybody have one?

    We got ours back in September 2007, and we're finally having the dreaded problems... So much money spent, for such a headache...

    CONSUMER PROTECTION
    LG Front Load Washing Machine Mold/Mildew Litigation

    Chimicles & Tikellis LLP filed a class action complaint in the District Court for the District of New Jersey against LG Electronics USA, Inc. (“LG”) on behalf of consumers who purchased allegedly defective front load washing machines manufactured or sold by LG (the “defective washing machines”). According to the complaint, the defective washing machines suffer from a design and/or manufacturing defect that leads to the formation of mold, mildew, must, and other odiferous and unsightly compounds on the inside of the washing machines. In addition to being unsightly and smelly, the mold and mildew that forms on the interior of the defective washing machines can damage clothes and other items; trigger allergies; and substantially decrease the value of these high-end washing machines, according to the compliant. The complaint alleges that the named plaintiffs have run bleach and other cleaning products through their LG washing machine in an attempt to cleanse it of mold and mildew, but that these efforts to rid their defective washing machine of mold and mildew have been unsuccessful.

    The class action complaint filed by Chimicles & Tikellis asserts claims for violations of the New Jersey and Florida consumer protection statutes, breach of express warranty, breach of the implied warranty of merchantability, and unjust enrichment. The complaint seeks monetary damages and other relief, including a court order that compels LG to cease and desist from selling the defective washing machines, and to establish an appropriate program to inspect, repair, and replace the defective washing machines.

    The class action complaint can be viewed by clicking here.

    Damn...

    I work in appliances and don't recommend the LG's to anyone. They are very difficult to get parts for and there's not enough certified technicians to perform warranty and nonwarranty related service.

    If you do get a refund, get fed up, or whatever, do yourself a favor and buy any of the Whirlpool Duet models WFW9200, WFW9400, WFW9600 or the rebaged Maytag Epic models MFW9600, MFW9700, MFW9800.

    If you need more appliance questions answered, feel free to shoot me a pm or something...

    Thats sucks. Damn those were alot of money.

    I agree with fast98, go with Whirlpools. Parts are super easy to find, and usually cheap with good availability. I don't buy any appliances that I can't service myself, service people will rip you a new one, of course they gotta make a living. I had to replace the thermostats on my dryer last month. Got them for 30 bucks at an appliance supply shop near where I work. I wouldn't even know where to start with some of that LG stuff.

    Just reading some MySimon reviews, someone on there said LG won't even sell parts, unless your a tech, what a load of crap.

    From what I read, it might help to wipe it down inside, maybe leave the door open with a fan in it.
