Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Great features! Have had my machine since12/29/12 and absolutely love it! My clothes come out clean and smelling fresh! I use the steam feature much more than I thought I would!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger Loads & Cleaner Clothes We have a family with 3 teenage boys and there always seems to be a mountain of clothes and towels to wash. We purchased our LG Washer after learning of it's high capacity, but quickly learned that there's so many other benefits. The controls and features are easy to use, we use less water and electricity, and our clothes have never been cleaner. We thought we'd never really use the steam wash feature, but found out it's great for removing stains. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Machines I've owned this machine for almost a year. I love the fact that you can choose to do quick loads for a few article of clothing with minimal detergent. Another feature of this machine is the idea that you can just press 'start' twice to use the regular cycle for day to day laundry ( eg. towels, t-shirts etc.). It's a great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer This washer is great, it is very quite, handles just about anything you throw at it and is easy to operate. The only negative I can find is the wash times on some of the cycles are extrodinary (up to 2 hrs for a load) and some times it has issues with self balancing (which extends the time even longer than what the timer says). Other than this, it is a great washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Well Spent My clothes haven't been this clean since purchased from the store! The machine makes a few noises that I haven't heard from older models, but it doesn't walk across the floor and it can handle large loads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny This front load washer hold a large load well. It takes very little detergent ...1 tablespoon (15 ml) and very little water. Love the delay to turn on feature. I put a load in before bedtime and in the AM its ready to hang. Remembering to dry the door seal/glass as well as drying the detergent dispensers after use is bothersome but worth it or there is a musty smell. It is a case of the thing you own really owning you I think. The door is large and makes loading and unloading effortless. The manual has a lot of information and is easy to read. Recommend taking the time to read it first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer I have had the pleasure of using. I enjoy using this washer so much I look forward to doing Laundry. I find cloths are actually softer using steam wash and when it is time to remove clothing it takes a much lesser time to dry them a big plus I have noticed a saving in utilities.
