Rated 5 out of 5 by Dotsky72 EVERY INCH-AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!!!
LG you really hit the jackpot designing this washer. You have thought of everything-right down to the little melody at the end. It is user friendly & gives cleaning options every which way. Laundry is super-clean-using a lot less water and detergent. Never thought at 72 I would love to do laundry--but I confess I do. You have made me a very happy camper. No doubts-buy it & enjoy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeeCandy Too Many Options
I think this washer is beautiful to look at and has a sleek shiny stainless interior. I am glad to have a front loading machine because I am convinced it is better for the clothes to not be "agitated" and it does save water. Unfortunately, it is impossible to figure out how much detergent to use. I use less and less all the time and still have too many suds, so I lose the value of saving water by adding extra rinses. There are many options but none seems to combine the settings I most want. The biggest problem is that the clothes simply do not spin dry enough for me. The second problem is that everything takes too long. I cannot adjust the time that the setting will take, so a small lightly soiled delicate load might be in the washer for nearly an hour. There is the added peculiar requirement to empty and drain the lint trap (I've never needed to do that before with any washing machine brand) which never has anything in it to be emptied. I did do the washer cleaning required and the washer smelled like the cleaning product for over a week, which was a problem for me because I use only "free and clear" detergent. So, some features are good; others, not so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janette Good product, but it rocks the house
Overall I'm satisfied with this washer. Cleans clothes well, although our whites get pretty dingy. Could it be the plant based detergent I use? However, we installed this washer on the riser drawer, and the washer rocks so much that it rocks the entire house. I can't leave anything sitting on top of the washer, it will get jiggled off and crash onto the floor. I'm taking the washer off the risers and installing a counter above the washer and dryer so I can store items on the counter, since I can't leave anything on top of the rocking washer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lisa Hard to keep the Washer Clean
Although this washing machine cleans my clothes very well, the washer itself is difficult to maintain. The rubber rim on the door is constantly collecting lint which gets caught in the tiny crevices at the bottom of the seal. I have to get q-tips or toothpicks to pick out the lint. You also have to empty the bottom wet, lint area regularly or it gets moldy. I would NOT purchase this machine again, only because I hate having to clean it so much - and if you forget, you are reminded with a moldy odor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary10173 Easy to use
Like all the options re water temp, clothes cleanliness, etc. Cleans well, uses less water, but seems to take a long time. I leave the door open after use to keep out any smell of mustiness that that I have read can occur with front load washers. Overall, pretty happy with my washer.

Oh my goodness, I just can't say enough wonderful things about this washer-It is definitely one of the best appliances have ever owned!! I am constantly recommending it to others and constantly saying I am so happy I purchased it. I spent weeks researching, and just am sorry I didn't act sooner. LG is at the top of their game.

Rated 3 out of 5 Incredibly noisy
Unfortunately due to space in my home, I had to stack my LG washer/dryer pair. From day one, any time the washer is spinning (even slightly), it sounds like the house is falling apart! The machines were professionally installed with the correct stacking kit. When the washer is running, it is impossible to talk on the phone, watch tv, or even talk to other people in the house. The washer seems to wash clothes well. I just don't recommend stacking.
