The repair rate of LG appliances varies substantially between different types of appliance, according to appliance repair information site ApplianceAssistant. While LG laundry appliances are some of the most reliable machines of their kind, LG kitchen appliances have had significantly worse reliability than machines made by most competing brands.
Both LG washers and dryers have the lowest repair rates of all brands, with only about 5 percent of these appliances requiring repair. In contrast, a full 20 percent of LG dishwashers eventually require service, as do 23 percent of LG side-by-side refrigerators. The reliability of LG refrigerators without ice makers is average for the class at 9 percent.
