Better than Front Load
Date:January 7, 2012
Best Features: Easy to use and works great.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it.
"In the interest of full disclosure I am not the person in our household that uses this new washing machine the most although I have used it. My wife's opinions may be different, but her basic reaction has been that she loves it.
I did a lot of research before purchasing this. The first big issue we needed to figure out was whether or not to go front load or top load. To be honest, I had no idea of the differences and no idea of the technological advancements in these machines.
We went with top load for a few reasons:
1. Our research tells us there are a lot of problems with front loads in some cases. They get stinky if the door isn't left open. Depending on brand and quality they can have mechanical problems.
2. Front loads are low to the ground unless you buy the pedestals(expensive) and even then they are still harder to load.
3. It seemed we got more features for the price and higher quality with top load.
4. Our laundry room is small and we did not want the doors opening to the front.
We went with this particular LG model for a few reasons:
1. Good price (see below)
2. LG's reputation for quality
3. LGs warranty on the machine (10 years on the drive)
4. Features
5. Rebate from power company and water company
My opinion is that this is a VERY HIGH QUALITY piece of equipment. It has a glass top so you can see everything that happens inside while it is washing. You might ask how exciting is that? Well in an old machine not that interesting since all it does is add water, wash and then spin. This thing shakes and sprays and whirls and twists and lots of other stuff. I can only wonder why, but I assume it is all related to the high efficiency. It is pretty cool and there is no doubt in my mind that our stuff comes out cleaner than our old machine.
By the way, it is super quiet. It hums and swishes and swooshes, but compared to our old dinosaur this thing is basically silent.
My last comment is that we bought this at Best Buy. The next week they had it on sale. Best Buy guarantees they will refund the difference if they sell for less within 60 days. Well they did exactly that and I got a credit back for a couple of hundred bucks even after it was installed in my home. I had been happy at the original price and was even happier when it ended up being less.
The installation by Best Buy was also top notch. Our laundry room is on the second floor and they took out the old and brought in the new and set it all up for FREE!"

Great Machine
Date:January 7, 2012
Best Features: You can wash smaller loads of clothes efficiently
"I like this machine. Not only did I get a great deal at Best Buy, but the machine had features I liked. On my old machine, I tended to not use all the features, but this one makes using the features easy. I found out that if you don't use the suggested settings (bedding in may case) laundry may not get as clean as you would like. I often have small loads of laundry and it adjusts that water level for smaller loads."

Quiet Washer that gets it done
Date:January 7, 2012
Best Features: Quiet
Cons: nothing
"I really like my new washer because it is quiet and gets my clothes nice and fresh. Also it allows me to wash comforters which my old washer would not handle. So I really love it! Worth the amount I paid for it."

A Black Friday Winner
Date:January 6, 2012
Best Features: Quality
"I am very pleased with the overall use, quality and value of this machine. I read reviews and the mention of tangling of some items. It is a minor issue and with a little trial and error, I have no problems. At first I too thought the water level was too low. No it is not. It is all that is needed the clothing comes out clean and is not wasting water. it is a new concept. Less is more. Less water, and less detergent. I recommend with confidence this machine."

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™.
