This product is a complete lemon.
I only do 3 loads a week. I clean the filters regularly, i wipe down the tub and under the rubber insulation after each use and clean the soap dispenser after each use. I do not live in an area with HARD water so why does the filter periodically get 'clogged'? The extended service contractor told me he has had numerous repairs to do on this LG model. The store I purchased it at (which i wont name) did offer me to upgrade to the newest model for the difference in the sale price of both machines. I will give LG another chance with the WM3470HVA. I wont hold my breath, but will hope for the best. I too did my research and found LG had the best reviews. maybe i just purchased the lemon of the lot

I love this washer but it's the first nice one I've ever owned so I don't have much to compare it to. I like the pre-set options and that the temperature and rotation speed are changeable with any wash. I also like the pre-wash and extra rinse options.
It does a great job being quiet AFTER it's bumped around for about 10 seconds. It makes quite a bit of noise while it's figuring out how to stabilize itself.
Also, I wish that there was an option for more water during the wash because I feel like some spots and stains would come out with more water.

A great washing experience
We owned this washer for about a year and we are completely satisfied with the quality and reliability of this washer. We also purchased the matching dryer and could not have been more thrilled with their performance. I would definitely recommend LG for all of your appliance needs because of their great reputation and their dedication to providing the best customer service. We will be using LG for all of our future appliance and electronic needs!

Love this washer!
This is my first front load washer and bought this model after reading various reviews. No regrets switching to front loader - wish I had done it sooner. It is so quiet that I find myself checking to see if it is still running and since close to family room, we no longer have to close door or turn up tv. I love the prewash and extra rinse feature for extra dirty or bulky loads. No problem handling kingsize bedspread. Clothes are cleaner and produce much less lint which I know because I also purchased the matching dryer - which I also love. Have only used the steam features a few times, but nice to have. The normal cycle does take longer, but also has short cycle when needed.
