Answer: 
Ours is in our basement, however, it seems to be well balanced and does not seem as loud as our prior font loader. I frequently switch from high to medium spin which may help.

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!

Answer: 
I would say yes, however, if not repositioned I would be concerned that folded and inner areas would not get sufficient movement and would need to be repositioned and re-done.

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.

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: 
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.

Which cycle for sheets/towels?

Just purchased. After looking through manual, trying to determine which cycle is best to wash sheets and/or towels. Manual states bulky/bedding is for items such as pillows, comforters and articles that have difficulty absorbing water. Do sheets and towels just use cotton/normal? Thanks in advance!

Momofthree I had the same questions when I first purchased my new LG Washer. I use bulky/bedding for large towels, large sheets, comforters, etc. I called customer service and found them very helpful on issues as this. The number is 800-243-0000. Very good customer service!

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine and its proper usage. Yes; with the cycles and descriptions provided, it would seem that the COTTON/NORMAL cycle may be best for the items you have mentioned.

Answer: 
My washer is far enough away from the wall and my cabinets that the lid opens easily. If you have cabinets that extend more than 13" from the wall, you would have to place the machine about 6"- 8" from the wall to accommodate the lid's opening. You already have to allow a few inches for the water lines and the effluent line anyway, so you can take that into consideration. I have experienced no problem.

Answer: 
I remember doing this a month ago as I had a similar problem but I believe you need at least 54 inches. But im not 100% sure. The hinge does fold up and tuck away nicely giving you a little room to play with if needed on the height.
