"I purchased this washer and matchng dryer at the same time. I love the dryer. The washer is quiet, and I like some of the features, but I wish I had more control to change some of the settings. Although I read the manual cover to cover before using, I am finding this washer is much harder on our clothes than my 20 year old washer was - especially sweaters. I have bought bags for the sweaters but they are still "piling." Although I would stay with LG, I would not purchase this particular washer again simply because it seems to be too hard on some clothes."

"Purchased this washing machine based on consumer ratings. So far I've run about ten loads and the clothes come out very clean. I don't need to run my dryer as long as I did with my old washer, because this new washer spins the clothes dryer than my old washer. On one load I did get a UE (uneven load) signal, but I had mixed a heavy towel with sheets. The washer gave out a signal and stopped. I rearranged the clothes in the washer, and the load finished without any other interruptions.
So far, I'm very pleased with this washer."

Disappointed

"I am disappointed and honestly not looking forward to doing laundry for the next 10 years (or so). Every load comes out with splotches of detergent (yes, I use HE). When I wash on permenant press my clothes do not come out clean. When I wash on normal/cotton, the clothes come out very wrinkles and twisted. I had a black t-shirt with white deodorant marks under the arms. I had to wash it 3 times before it came clean. I had a dot of peanutbutter on a pair of pants and it had to be washed twice. This is my second attempt at a low h2o washer (returned a whirlpool cabrio for this LG model). I am not a fan of the low water. I just can't see the clothes agitating through enough water to get clean and frankly, my clothes are not getting clean. We decided on this type of washer after owning a front loader that lasted 12 years. I'm wishing I would have stayed with the front loader model."

Best Features: Real solid so far, promising.
"My hopes were not too high based on the mixed reviews I had read. However, I have nothing negative to report after seventh week: Press pause and the lid unlocks to throw in that forgotten sock (which will turn up missing anyways.) Doesn't fully submerse clothes in water - I don't care, they come out clean! Several standard cycles to choose from, or customize. Nice non-annoying tones and beeps. I must say that the see-through lid did not bring much excitement for the fam... even the cat's not impressed. We caught it on sale during a weekly promo so we're pretty happy."
