Best Features: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
"We just purchased this model and so far it's great. What I love is that LG removed the traditional large plastic tube in the middle of the washer so there is so much more room - never mind the fact that overall the tub is larger than previous washing machines we've had in the past. Also, this machine appears to be much quieter, so I like that too! This model will hopefully give us some cost savings as well."

Nice washer
Date:January 25, 2012
Best Features: Cleans well for small to normal size loads
Cons: Don't overload the clothes. It doesn't do as large a load as it appears capable.
"I have been very happy with this washer and the matching dryer. It's great looking , quiet and cleans the clothes with much less water and energy. It's interesting to watch it sensing the load of clothes when it first starts. Catchy little tunes on the start and done alerts."

Washer is great
Date:January 23, 2012
Best Features: Attractive and like the top loading.
"My LG cleans my clothes much better than my last washer which costs $1500.00 and broke down three times in four years. I decided to buy a much less complicated machine for the price that it would cost to repair my Sears Oasis Elite Washer. The LG cleans clothes very effectively, is easy to use and the washing capacity is sufficient for my household. It is noisier than my last washer but I just close the washroom door and I am pleased knowing it is doing a great job. Sorry it is an import but it is a better machine than my other choices."

disappointed again
Date:January 21, 2012
Best Features: The end of cycle tone.
Cons: Doesn't get clothes clean.
"We purchased a Whirlpool Cabrio first. Did not like it, returned it for this LG model. Now I wish I would have kept the Whirlpool or gone back to a front loader. Clothes are not getting clean. For example, I had a cotton black t-shirt with white deodorant marks under the sleeves. It came out still with the deodorant marks. I threw it back in the next load and it STILL came out with the white marks along with a big splotch of undisolved detergent (yes I use HE products). It's back in now for the 3rd washing. Every load has a splotch of detergent, (I am going to try a liquid brand next). I am not a fan of the high energy/low water models. I can't see how items are to get clean. Sure, the clothes "smell" clean, but I'm guessing that is because they are still saturated with detergent. Sorry LG, not impressed."
