LG Appliances Reviewed: A Breakdown

From the kitchen to the laundry room, here are some of the most highly touted features from this premium appliance brand.

LG Refrigerators Reviewed

Key Refrigerator Features:

  • InstaView™ Door-In-Door® – On select models, a sleek glass panel that allows you to see inside the easy-access door without letting the cold air out.
  • Door Cooling+ – Blasts of cool air that reach all areas of the refrigerator to keep produce fresh up to 2x longer.
  • Inverter Linear Compressor – Backed by a 10-year limited warranty, the linear compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently.
  • Fresh Air Filter – On select models, a three-layer Fresh Air Filter with forced air circulation and dedicated fan helps to deodorize the air, pulling cleaner fresher air into the fridge.

Keep things cool with an LG refrigerator. Whether you favor the time-tested configuration of a top-freezer refrigerator to the flush-inset appearance of a counter-depth refrigerator, LG refrigerators are equipped to do more than just keep your groceries fresh.

The Door-In-Door® French door refrigerators offer the most storage of any French door model on the market, along with quick and easy access to family favorites with adjustable bins. And if these LG refrigerators have an InstaView™ glass panel, you can see what is inside your refrigerator without opening the door, as the tinted glass panel is illuminated after two swift knocks—now, that’s one way to raid the fridge without losing your cool.

If that’s not enough, LG Door-In-Door® refrigerator models are also stocked with a dual ice maker that automatically creates slow-melting, round ice, so you can be a baller at your next dinner party. Without the work of time-consuming molds, you can give your beverages the perfect ice for next-level entertaining, whether concocting a craft cocktail, whiskey on the rocks, refreshing lemonade, or even iced coffee.

In terms of LG refrigerator reviews, the brand’s full lineup of French door, side-by-side, top-freezer, and bottom-freezer refrigerators is commended for offering plenty of ENERGY STAR-certified models, large-capacity options, and convenient smart capabilities. Speaking of which, LG refrigerators with ThinQ® app connectivity let you remotely control key features like IcePlus™ (for even more Craft Ice™ on demand), Vacation Mode (for optimal energy conservation), and more, from your smart device.

LG Dishwashers Reviewed

Key Dishwasher Features:

  • QuadWash™ – Four multi-motion spray arms power-clean dishes from multiple angles to get dishes clean the first time.
  • True Steam® Technology – Uses the power of steam to penetrate food residue and minimize water spots during the drying cycle by up to 60 percent.
  • Adjustable 3rd Rack – Gives you the flexibility to fit more, including uniquely-shaped or oversized serving utensils and tall stemware.

If you think doing the dishes is a chore, think again. The brains behind LG know that a beautiful table starts with sparkling dishes, and you can set the table with virtually spotless dishes and glassware with LG dishwashers.

Certified to disinfect your dishes, LG dishwashers with the Sanitize option can eradicate 99.999 percent of bacteria and reach a final rinse temperature greater than 150 degrees with True Steam® technology to minimize water spots by 60 percent. Plus, LG’s exclusive QuadWash™ system uses four multi-motion spray arms that power-clean dishes from several angles, getting them clean the first time.

And if you’re partial to smart tech, LG dishwasher reviews sing the praises of LG smart dishwashers, which use ThinQ® connectivity to send your smart device an alert when your dishwasher is done with a cycle. So, go ahead: Kick back and enjoy after-dinner TV with your family.

LG Washers and Dryers Reviewed

Key Washer and Dryer Features:

  • 6Motion™ Technology – Six different wash motions provide a smart cleaning experience that maximizes performance while preserving your most delicate items.
  • TurboWash™ Technology – Fast-forward your wash by giving big loads the same great clean and cutting wash time by up to 30 minutes.
  • Sensor Dry ‒ A built-in sensor detects moisture and automatically adjusts the drying time, saving energy with less wear and tear.
  • TrueSteam™ Technology ‒ On select models, real steam reduces wrinkles and odors while practically eliminating the need for ironing.

With an LG washer and dryer set, you can expand the limits of your laundry room, thanks to WiFi connectivity, mega capacities, certified allergen-reduction cycles—and more.

One of our favorite laundry innovations from the brand is the LG TWINWash™ bundle. Cutting your laundry setup’s footprint in half, this stackable unit is the laundry dream team you’ve been waiting for, with integrated control panels and high-powered settings that are designed to tackle large loads in less time.

When it comes to more traditional setups, standalone LG washers still have the power to gently, but powerfully, clean fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors, and wrinkles. On select models, the Allergiene™ Cycle harnesses the power of steam to remove over 95 percent of pet dander and dust mites. And as far as energy efficiency goes, select LG washers offer ColdWash™ Technology that couples enhanced washing motions with cold water to penetrate deeply into fabrics—resulting in the energy-saving benefits of cold water with the elevated performance of warm water.

Not to be outdone, select LG dryers feature Sensor Dry technology, Wrinkle Care options, and a FlowSense™ Duct Clogging Indicator light on the control panel will notify you when it’s time to take out the fluff.

How Do LG Appliances Compete?

If you are wondering how LG appliances reviews compare to other brands’, we’ve got you covered there, too. Given that LG is considered a premium manufacturer, we are also taking a look at Samsung and Whirlpool appliances.

LG vs Samsung

Not just competitors in the electronics sector, LG and Samsung are also duking it out in the laundry room and kitchen. Check out the following comparison tables to discover which features LG and Samsung refrigerators and washers carry.

Counter-Depth Installation X X
Large Capacity (≥25 cu. ft.) X X
Dual Evaporator X X
Smart Features X X

LG vs Samsung Refrigerators: The Verdict

Both LG and Samsung refrigerators are similar in quality and either would make an excellent addition to your kitchen.

That said, if you’re looking for top-of-the-line designs and a more built-in look, a Samsung refrigerator might seem like the more appealing option. But if you are looking for a refrigerator with ultra-convenient features and tech-forward innovations, an LG refrigerator may seem like a no-brainer.

LG vs Samsung Washers: The Verdict

Due to outstanding performances on both sides, selecting between LG and Samsung washers is challenging. As such, your decision will come down to personal tastes, needs, and preferences.

While both brands have unique perks—like Samsung’s highly effective Speed Cycle and LG’s ultra-capacity options—there are still many parallels. Samsung's FlexWash™ and LG's TWINWash™ let you wash loads separately or at the same time, as both entail two individually controlled washers in the same unit so you can run two kinds of washes with different settings and wash options.

In the end, you can't go wrong either way.

LG vs Whirlpool

Broadly considered a great-value brand, Whirlpool has stepped up its game to compete with premium-level appliance manufacturers like LG. Check out how LG and Whirlpool refrigerators and washers compare.

LG vs Whirlpool Refrigerators: The Verdict

LG and Whirlpool refrigerators offer the same level of modern design, but that said, LG may have a slight edge over Whirlpool because of its tech-forward amenities like the InstaView™ glass panel and digital touch controls.

In terms of organization and storage options, Whirlpool refrigerators do not offer in-door ice makers unlike LG refrigerators, which fare better in optimizing the available storage space; however, Whirlpool’s crisper and deli drawers manage to give users flexible storage options. LG’s Door-In-Door® models also free up storage space on shelves, both all in all, both brands provide a range of storage options to users.

In addition, LG’s warranty is a bit more flexible than what Whirlpool offers—simply because it covers the compressor. But ultimately, LG refrigerators offer slightly more than the Whirlpool models in terms of features, but accordingly, these benefits also come at a higher cost, so your decision depends on what snazzy features you would want and how much you are willing to spend for them.

LG vs Whirlpool Washers: The Verdict

LG and Whirlpool washers both deliver on performance and affordability, but when it comes to smart technology, LG's SmartThinQ® app can make streamlining laundry day a breeze.

While both the LG and Whirlpool washers are equipped with a steam wash option and self-cleaning cycles, LG stands out for its additional sanitary and allergen-reduction cyles. And if you are looking for a quiet unit, LG delivers a quieter performance with the LoDecibel quiet operation that allows you to do laundry in peace and serenity. A quiet operation may be a convenient option for households that don't have a dedicated laundry room away from the main living space.

Outstanding performance and quality make washers from either brand a great choice for your home. Again, your final decision will come down to your needs, preferences, and budget.
