Love It!!

"Well I have had this washing machine since August 2011 andI love it. I have had no problems with the machine. Very quiet, I highly recommend!! Love the music it plays when the wash is complete. I purchased the 3 year extended warranty because I had problems with my previous washing machine, not an LG and I did not want to take a chance. Now a days everything is electronic and you never know when a part may go out!!"

Best desison I made this year
Date:October 22, 2011
Best Features: Performance
"I had a front load washer in our 2nd floor laundry, and would constantly get a vibration throught our home. I finally made the switch to this wonderful top load washer and have never been happier. I thought with the same high speed spin I would still have to reinforce the floor or deal with the vibration issue. But decided to try without, and I was over joyed to find out there was no vibration at all. I would recommend this unit to everyone, especially with a 2nd floor laundry. I especially love that I don't have to bend over anymore to move the clothes from washer to the dryer."

Great bang for the buck.

"My wife and I really like this. We have 3 kids and this machine holds a massive amount of clothing, bedspreads, pillows, whatever. Just be aware if you are not purchasing a new dryer as well, most dryers won't be able to dry the amount of clothing that the washer can hold. If you pack it full, you will probably have to do 2 dryer loads unless you hang some stuff. We had a front loader for about 6 years and it died so hopefully this type of HE will last longer."
Written by a customer while visiting BestBuy.com

Just because a washer is tough on dirt and stains doesn't mean it needs to be tougher on your clothes. In this case, it's even more gentle. Our new Wave™ Series washer is loaded with some hard-hitting innovations like deep cleaning WaveForce™ technology. It's also gentler on both your fabrics and your utility bills with smart options like ColdWash™.
