    Default Brand New LG Washer - BROKEN!

    I am absolutely furious. Our washer and dryer finally bit the dust two months ago, and so Dh and I did our research, comparison shopping, and bought a new LG washer and dryer set.

    I came home from work today and went to do a load of laundry, only to find the washer not working. The power button is pushed in too far and no longer works. My guess...a certain 1.5 year old was in the laundry room. The one thing we didn't think of when we purchased (we purchased online) was the fact that the buttons are all on the front, which are easy access for the toddler.

    I am so furious. We have a lock on the laundry room door because the laundry room is right off the kitchen where the kids and I spend most of our time. One of us must have forgotten to lock it one day, he must have wandered in and pushed the button. Unless it was one of the older kids, but no one is acting guilty, and believe me...they do act guilty when it's their fault.

    So, I'm heart broken and angry and without clean clothes.

    Why would a warranty cover destructive children?

    Sorry Amyboz! I hope they cover it.

    Spiritdeer, I think they might. We had our lawn mower covered when someone decided to tie it behind a 4 wheeler and see it they could cut the lawn that way.

    The only warranties I've seen cover manufacturer's defects, not owner errors.

    Ahahahahaha! I'm sure it wasn't funny to you at the time, but THAT is a story for the ages!

    On a better note, I fooled around with it and was able to get it to work. It's not fixed, but I got one load through.

    I'm glad you got it to work!

    UMMM you have all read a few messages from the genius that got sick of push mowing and tried that. I wish I could blame on someone else.

    I should have worded that better. I mean the Villagers have read posts written by the dolt that did that (me).
