Quiet and efficient
Love the features and how quiet it runs. This is my 2nd LG washer and better than my 1st.
I still need to figure out how to just put the washer in to spin only without rinse.

I recommend this LG washer
Turbowash is fast, cleans well. All cycle times are shorter and clean better than those of 2006 front load LG. New LG front loader is much quieter. Magnet keeps door in place without sealing when machine is not in use, allowing air circulation in washer and door out of walkway--a plus. Decided not to place washer on pedestal this time--to use top for folding--a good move. Problem: Dark control buttons are difficult to read (lack of contrast) unless light shines directly on them. 2006 LG control panel's dark letters on white background were easy to read. Prefer Tide granular over liquid as granular rinses out better, I feel.

Washer Truly is "High Efficiency"
I bought this washer to replace an 8 month old "high efficiency" washer that was fancy but did not clean or deodorize my clothes, much less the heavily soiled laundry from my horse barn (horse blankets, grooming towels, etc.). This LG washer handles my filthiest horse blankets, as well as my family's everyday laundry perfectly, giving clean, sweet-smelling results. And I haven't even tried the steam cycles yet, because the regular cycles are doing the job. The drain filter is easy to clean, an important feature when very dirty materials are washed frequently. There is also a little spring mechanism that holds the door slightly ajar so the tub can air out between washes -- none of the musty, mildew odors associated with many of the high efficiency washers.

Transitioned from an old school top loader to this model. This model came highly regarded in some consumer magazine reviews. Looks very nice and appears well built. Used it to wash darks, lights, whites, and delicates and the results are very solid. Would not hesitate to recommend this to others
