A month in a loving it!
I've owned this fridge for a month now after buying it to fit into my new place. The fridge itself is smaller than my old one dimension wise, but just as big interior which was really appreciated it.
I haven't noticed any issues with noise, everything gets cold quickly and ice freezes in no time. I really like the water dispenser, it can run out quickly, but it's easy enough to keep on top of. The nozzle sometimes gets hit when you place it back in, causing water to come out, but if you take your time it's not a problem.
One of the main re...asons I bought this was for the reversible door, my old place had the kitchen on the left side and the new one has it on the right. So I'm able to have this swapped over so I'm not needing to back against a wall to get to open the fridge.

Extremely noisy after a week and it doesn't stop
Practical and functioning product, but VERY noisy, it's sounds more noisy then my 20 year old fridge!
I won't recommend anyone to go with LG fridges. On website it states it's "quite with less moving parts", but that's not TRUE. It's constantly making humming/buzzing noises. It only started making noise after a WEEK OF USE and now we can hear it over our TV!
During the night it can be heard from the other room.
Called the LG to report the issue and they've sent a deaf technician who's stating it's operating normally and that's how the invert...er compressor should sound like, what a nice explanation when on the website it's advertised it operates quietly. There are also noise coming from the motherboard which we pointed to the technician who also confirmed it's quite normal?! Additionally he advised us that the new fridges with invertor compressor use different Freon gas which causes a noise. Since when gas circulating around can cause more noise?! So if you wanna a jukebox with techno noise which also cools your food/drinks, buy this fridge, if not stay away from LG fridges! Can't even replace the fridge as JB-HI-FI states they can't do anything if LG doesn't say it's operating normally, and according to this deaf technician we're stuck with this noisy box.

LG bottom mount fridge freezer - shockingly noisy
I would advise very strongly against any LG fridge based on my experience. We bought a LG Linear Compressor fridge/freezer a couple of years ago and it has been a nightmare. Was getting louder and louder (constant buzzing/humming LOUDLY) and requested service (the aftersales service was also a nightmare but that's another story). Eventually, compressor diagnosed as problem and was replaced. No change to noise issue. Service called again, tech came out again, fourth or fifth time. Noise dampening added, whatever else they did. Seemed better for a while. Noise came back. So offensively loud. Dog can't even sleep near it. Never again LG fridge. And the service experience and quality of this product has put me off LG products completely.

LG GB-455 Door Reversal User Guide
Previously had a LG bottom mount fridge for 18 years which was still going strong (motor wise) but a few bits had broken over many years and was also getting too small for us. Replaced with the LG-GB-W455MBL and the extra space is now perfect. Interestingly the motor noise on this new model is louder than the older one we had but its not an issue. The motor sound on this one is like a faint low pitch buzzing sound not a high pitched noise like another review. The door layout is perfect for us... 2x 3L milks fit fine inc. water dispenser and she...lf layout is good with folding shelf option. The loose 8 egg holder is a bit silly compare with our previous fully secure moulded one (a bit more effort in design and slight cost could see 3 rows by 5 eggs meaning 15 egg holders in one support tray). The water dispenser on this model is also a poor design. It is impossible to fill a suitable glass using it how it should be done without dripping water onto the floor. The recess is not deep enough. To fill a glass without dripping 'water' you need to hold the glass in a specific position and manually press the water release lever with your other hand (and then only a drip or two end up in the catch plate at the bottom). Ok for us, but not ok for kids to remember the careful steps. Freezer working well so far inc. ice maker. Looks nice in Matt Black. We also were disappointed there are no instructions to reverse the doors over despite LG advertising this model as reversible and the salesperson also confirming this to us. Anyway, as we had done our previous model and experience in this it was relatively easy to do. I have attached a user guide on the general steps required (use at own risk as it is not a definitive or official manual just an overall guide).
