On this top loader I noticed that the handle on the lid has 2 sliders that can be used to lock the handle in place, or unlocked to allow the handle to rotate...why?

Answer: 
The locking hinged handle on the washer lid is actually there to aid in closing the lid. For someone shorter in stature, the handle can be unlocked to aid in closing.

Answer: 
This is for those with height restrictions due to a wall cabinet that sits above the washer, etc.

Answer: 
That is so you can leave the vent open for better ventilation to the tub if the machine is not going to be used for a while. There are already vent slots in that lid, but they are smaller.

How is the vibration on this machine. Concerned as it will be on the second level of our house...

Answer: 
No problem....the machine sort of settles the contents before it starts washing them. Uncanny. Especially since I used to have terrible problems with towels. No problems now.

Answer: 
I find the vibration to be surprisingly low thanks to the load sensing adjustments it does and the rubber footing system. With the unit on the first floor I don't hear much in the finished basement below.

Answer: 
We too have it on the second floor. I can't hear it at all. Sometimes I'll hear a faint noise from the water running and, forgetting it was even on, question what I was hearing. Have to get used to it I guess!

Due to its LoDecibel operation it is so quiet you may not even notice the washer running.

Answer: 
YES! I am washing our KING SIZE COMFORTER in it now, there is more then enough room for the comforter to fit, it will not look like it when you first put it in the washer but once the washer begins the wash cylces it will be fine. I hated having to go to the laundry mat to was our comforter, YUCK, I am very happy with the results from this washer with our comforter, it is getting cleaned better then it ever has at a laundry mat.

Answer: 
No. I don't think any unit on the market does? But it is worth the nominal cost to replace your hoses and vent coil. This is also important to do for warranty.

With regard to the LG Model WT1201CW washer...for the average person, the drum is pretty deep and would require the person to lay on the front of the washer to retrieve clothing at the bottom of the drum. Is there a potential to accidentally activate the controls when leaning over the edge of the washer?

Answer: 
No. When the load is done, the machine automatically turns off. Should you happen to accidentally turn the power button on, the machine will not and can not operate without the lid closed.
