This machine was exactly what I was looking for: large capacity in a standard machine size. Unfortunately it fails to complete its cycle almost 80% of the time. I have a brand new home with new floors, and perfect balance. Yet nearly every load fails to complete due to the "load imbalance" fault. I add towels to try and rectify and it is still a problem. There is also no half load feature. A major miss in features. You can also not just do a spin dry mode. If for any reason it fails, you have to start the wash all over again. LG has really let me down. On a bad day I run the same load almost 4 times (5 hours) and it still will not finish its spin due to load imbalance. Do not buy this.

This washing machine is very good, expensive but on the whole worth it. It has a large wash capacity and where my old washing machine needed two loads this one does it all in one. I would have given this machine full 5 stars had it not been for one VERY annoying flaw - the child lock. On almost all other washing machines the child lock does just that -locks off the use of all the buttons. However, on this machine, it locks the buttons off apart from the most important one - the main power switch! I have lost count of the number of times mid-cycle that my 2 year old has switched it off so it has to be re-started from the start - HOW ANNOYING! I have also accidently leant over the machine and knocked it mid-cycle and the whole thing shuts down. I simply cannot understand why the manufacturers would disable all other buttons but not this one - which incidently may as well have a sign saying press me on it as it lights up like a Christmas tree, much to my son's delight! I really have to say that had I known about this, I would have thought twice about buying it. Oviously my son will grow out of the temptation to push it and I try to keep well away when it is on now, but I felt I should write this review to enable others to make up their mind before parting with quite a sum of hard earned cash! My husband did ring customer services to complain and was told that they had received similar complaints, but I hadn't read any other reviews mentioning this at the time when we purchased.

Good Points: Excellent load size in a compact washer. Very good choice of programmes and fairly easy to use with lots of ad-ons . Bad Points: None really
