After being without a washer for a week, we were happy to put this into action. My son thought it was fun to watch through the lid. I was thrilled with how fast I caught up due to the LARGE capacity. This is likely as "fun" as laundry will get.

Love this Washing Machine
I bought this washing machine last week and ready to recommend it to anyone who asks. I actually saw it a couple of years ago in Best Buy and knew I wanted it then. Two friends of mine bought it and loved it so I finally decided to take the plunge and get my own. It is easy to use and you can fit so much into the tub! My clothes come out smelling great and looking good! It is so easy to use I've already showed all my kids.

Purchased this washer over two years ago. Worked like it should but noticed it had a terrible odor frequently so ran the clean cycle frequently. It always got an "unbalanced" error when cleaning it and took constant monitoring and several tries to complete. Frequently got the “unbalanced” error when running loads of all sizes. Got a recall notice for a software update to fix the problem and after doing so, made it even worse. Just finished a load that took over two hours to complete. Researching this problem, have read hundreds of similar complaints, looks like a long, unnecessary fight to try to get it fixed or replaced. Caveat emptor.

Recall derates the machine
Interesting that you do not see the LG reviews on their site that are on many other related to the recall and the effects on their washing machine. I wonder if mine will get posted.
Our machine appeared to work fine before the recall but we did not run the real high speed rinse and we were quite careful with it. Since they "upgraded" the software, we now experience UE errors and the machine is constantly going out of balance and into infinite loops on the cycles. Cycle times also increase but about 30%. You need to babysit the machine to make sure it will finish a load. You definitely cannot leave the house with it running.
