Excellent value--very happy with our purchase
We've only had the washer for a little over a month but have been very satisfied with it. When our old washer died, the challenge was finding a new washer that would fit in the same space (didn't want to renovate just to accommodate a new washer). This was one of the few available with the right dimensions, but we don't feel we've compromised by getting a small washer. Because the new LG doesn't have an agitator, we actually can now wash much larger loads. We were also delighted to find that because of the significantly faster spin cycle, we don't have to run the dryer for as long--a nice cost savings. And it was very simple to operate--we're almost always simply doing regular wash so operating the washer consists of merely pushing the power button and then the start button. Oh, and it is really, really quiet.

LOVE this washer!
This washer is so quiet and makes washing clothes fun! I love the many different load options and the song it plays when the cycle is complete. Everything about this washer is quality and it's nice looking.
The ONLY thing I don't like as much is the self balancing feature. If your load is off balance the washer will drain and re-fill to try to balance it out. Usually it only takes once to re-balance it. Sometimes it takes more than once and it will drain, and re-fill multiple times (sometimes to no avail). I feel like this is a colossal waste of water.

Quiet and Efficient
Does what it's supposed to - quietly and efficiently.
My biggest challenge so far has been reaching clothes at the bottom. Be aware if you're vertically limited.
I'm amazed how fresh the clothes smell, even using unscented detergent and tap water cold.

Would be great if I could choose my own water temp
I rated this washer only Good because I am disappointed with the settings feature, though I must add it is a great machine for the money. I can't figure out why the manufacturer would not let the consumer decide which water temperature he or she would prefer to use rather than presets on all cycles.
I also wonder why anyone would want to wash a load of clothes for an hour!
The other feature I personally find annoying is that the drum is so deep. I am short and I have to literally get onto tippy toes and lean all the way into the tub to gather up items at the bottom of the tub.
