Loud and forceful
I received my machine in February. Unlike several other reviewers I find my machine loud. When the water is filling the machine it is very forceful and makes several abrupt sounds as it is filling. During the wash cycles it is fairly quiet until the spin cycle during which time it again becomes very loud and shakes and squeaks. My machine is level, it's been checked several times. I'm disappointed with the machine. This washer replaces my previous front loader (10 yrs old) and it was never this loud.

really like this washer
Before this new LG machine we had a Whirlpool front loader for 18 years. That old washer never worked like this one, even when it was new. The clothes come out so dry, the dryer shuts off way quicker. Frankly in doing one of the first loads, I though something had happened to our old dryer. It seemed like I had just started it and it shut down. When I found the things inside were actually dry, it was like whoa....

Pros and Cons
For the most part, I must say I really love my new washer. It has replaced my previous top loading washer which I had for approximately 25 years. There are, however, a few things I don't like. One is the fact that there isn't a separate spin cycle. There is only a rinse and spin. Another feature which pertains to the pedestals, is that I cannot fit any of my detergent containers in them. I'm referring to normal size containers not the supersized ones. With the size of the washer and dryer, a consumer is almost forced to purchase the pedestals because the door is low and would require bending. That was one of the reasons I purchased the pedestals; however the other was going to be so I could store my laundry chemicals in them. I don't know what they are intended for, but I cannot find any practical use for them at this time, except to keep me from having to bend down to get to the laundry. I've only had my washer for a month, therefore, I cannot comment on long term performance or reliability. Also, I am unable to specify warranty issues.
