Well, the new LG washing machine arrived at the beginning of December, but it didn’t come with LG water inlet hoses. The delivery people connected it to the water inlet hoses we had and started it up (empty) as a test before they left. Pepper was freaking out! We hadn’t had a working washing machine for almost a month and the last noises from the laundry room were when the last washing machine was dying (loud, horrible noises). Pepper was trying to climb up on my lap while I was typing on the laptop!. (Note: A 60+ pound Golden Retriever doesn’t fit especially when I am trying to balance a laptop computer on it also.)
So, we did a few loads of laundry, but the LG turns the water on and off so fast that we have had water hammering (it makes all of the house water pipes shake in the house) even after I turned down the amount of water coming in.
I did some searching and found out the LG water inlet hoses have to be used (per the manual). So, I called LG and the water hoses are on order (and probably won’t be here until January). I also went searching on the Home Depot site and found out there are water hammering arresters that are for going on the back of the washing machine so I bought two of those.
So, for now I am back to doing laundry at the laundry mat and waiting for the LG water inlet hoses to arrive.
I am hoping the problems go away once the new hoses and arresters are installed. I will update when it is back working.
I never realized how much I miss having a working washing machine.

Shame on the salesman for not KNOWING you should have the specialty hoses!
Actually, I ordered the washer from the Home Depot website and I didn’t have the option to buy hoses. When I went into the store and asked about the hoses the salesman helped me and we found out that the paperwork said that the washing machine CAME with the required hoses. So, the water hoses ‘were lost’ between the LG factory and my house. I don’t know whether the factory forgot to put them in the box or what. At least LG isn’t charging me for the hoses that they are sending me.
