Answer: 
I do not have a sound meter available at home, but I can tell you the start and end electronic chime are louder than the normal machine operation. Out laundry room is off the kitchen (with a door). Close the door, run the washer and sitting in the family room 25 feet away reading a book and hardly noticeable. Watch TV and you can't hear it.

Very pleased with this machine and matching gas dryer.

Answer: 
That just means that there isn't a belt and pully system turning the drum. It's a direct drive system.

Answer: 
In a direct-drive unit, such as the LG Washer, motor speed is variably controlled by an inverter, so the weight of the load is sensed and power output is adjusted accordingly. These are different from the belt driven washers which uses the same amount of energy for working the agitator and spin the tub regardless of the load.

I hope this answers your Question

Answer: 
Can you give more details? Is the whole washer shacking or is it just the tub? If it's the tub does it shake enough to make the tub hit against the washer itself? Does it do this during the whole wash cycle or just during the spin cycle? Is it a shake or just a vibration? This unit does spin at a very high speed so you will feel vibrations while it is in the spin cycle. I’ve had my washer for about one year and have had a unbalanced load now and then which makes the tub hit the inside of the washer.

Answer: 
The is the possibility that there are still shipping bolts in the back of the unit. Shipping bolts are used when the machine is in transit to hold everything in place and not get damaged. Please check the manual to properly remove.

I read a review that said she could not soak clothes longer then the predetermined soak cycle. If she tried it would automaticly drain the tub. For several reasons, I like to soak certain things sometimes even overnight. I purchased this today, but may cancel it if this is true. The only way she could solve it was to unplug it.

Answer: 
I have not tried this but you should be able to hit the pause button on any load and leave it sit without it draining.

The soak cycle would determine the amount of time that clothes soak in the tub.

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™.
