Rated 5 out of 5 by washerreviewer Good washing machine
So far everything is working really well. I love the little tune it plays at the end. The clothes come out really clean and it's nice to use he detergent. The only thing to be aware of is when washing heavy items the spin cycle may need to be changed to a lower level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marsha42 Great way to wash clothes
Super pleased with my new washer. Have had it for 3 months and highly satisfied. Here in CA water is at a premium, and since this washer conserves on water and detergent, great savings for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jase48 this washer is awesome
The direct drive was the selling point for me after having bad experiences with other machines that would spin belts off. Another plus is the machine's ability to communicate thru the phone in the event of mechanical problems. Not to mention the machine is extremely quite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SorrySue Deep tub
I really like the deep tub, but I am average height, anyone shorter would need a stepstool. I am using the "medium" setting for the spin cycle due to the issues with balance. I am happy with the washer so far. My last TWO washers had to be replace due to the Motherboards, I fear the fact of leaning over the settings to retrieve the clothes into the deep tub, would have some effect down the road with the Motherboard. I wish I would have considered that before I made the purchase, I just liked it because it was different. Also, some of the settings are very hard to read without glasses. My favorite feature is the lid, it has a special feature to be ajared to air out the tub when not in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose This product is phenomenal
I just love my new LG washer and dryer. They are so efficient, so easy to use, so very quiet, and our clothes come out looking new, smelling fresh, and ever so soft. These machines are without a doubt the best investment we ever made in laundry appliances. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chaselaw Quiet, Efficient and User Friendly
Since we have only had the unit (we also bought the dryer) for only 2 months, it's too soon to provide an excellent rating in all categories. After a year of use, that is likely to be possible. We check with Consumer Reports for such major investments. These units were well rated and coupled with the features we sought allowed us to purchase with confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frank46 Some issues but overall a good machine
I've owned the washer for about 8 months and, overall, am satisfied but there are some features that need improvement.
I like the fact that the controls are at the front of the machine and there are many options. One option that I think should be added is water level. I agree with other reviewers that the water level at times isn't sufficient and the clothes on top are not in water. Once, when the cycle was done, a sheet had a large dry spot indicating that part of the sheet never touched water.
My greater concern is the ease with which the load can become unbalanced. Bath towels are a particular problem. Since I've owned the machine I've had to deal with an unbalanced load at least a half dozen times. That's annoying but not a major headache if you're around to check the load but if you're not, it would be very troublesome. I've not had the problem with wrinkles that others have complained about.
Despite these issues, I think the machine is very well built and, overall, has done a good job of getting my clothes clean. Also, it is easy to use and quiet. I would recommend that it be on a buyer's short list of machines to consider.
