As I look at this forum daily and scan the various topics, it is plainly evident that there is an upsurge of LG issues popping up lately. So I ask those of you who have owned LG for awhile to come forth and relate your LG problems as well. After all, this is supposed to be a learning environment, so any personal experiences might benefit the rest of the consumer world. I am aware of some of the internal service issues thay are having with their fridges right now, for example. Leaks between the fridge and the bottom freezer for example. Board problems...etc.
How are you liking LG as a whole?
Do you think LG is headed for a major recall on some of their products?
How about class-action suits?
Why post a thread on *just* LG breakdowns?
Malfunctions & component failures are not unique to this brand.
Every manufacturer has faced the prospect of a class-action at some point.
I've seen plenty of "plainly evident" issues with other brands.

Whirlpool Calypso washers

LG has had its share of typical problems:
Dishwashers: Sump Assembly/Duct Venting redesigns/Wires sticking
to insulation material.
Washers: Some main board upgrades.
Dryers: Some main board upgrades
Ranges: Very few issues.
Refrigerators: Several icemaker revisions.
Several internal duct updates/air leaks-condensation.
Light bulbs melting lenses.
Earlier models with Thermistors enshrouded by foam
LG/DOE energy agreement to improve EnergyStar
All of the above concerns were addressed. This list is also virtually identical to many other manufacturer Technical Service Bulletins.
