Love this washer!
Date:November 13, 2011
Best Features: Large capacity, quiet, many cycle options
Cons: Some spin cycles may be too fast for certain clothes
"When our 12 year old washer went out we made the decision to replace both the washer and dryer. The most important thing to me when looking for a washer was the capacity. The bigger the better! After a lot of research and looking at many stores, we decided on this and the matching gas dryer. I can get three of my old large loads in one load with this washer! It is great to wash blankets and I can easily fit my queen sized comforter in there. One thing you have to be careful of is that the spin cycles are really fast, so start off on the lower speeds and adjust to your preferences. Be careful though, on high speeds it spins so fast that it can cause some clothes to unravel! It plays a cute little song when finished but if you have a large house or appliances in a basement it may not be loud enough to hear. I'm so glad we made this purchase and would definitely recommend it to others!"

"Love my washer. Love that it load senses and all the various cycles/settings. It's a bit loud considering it's only behind closet doors, but worth it!"

"I purchased my LG Washer a month ago and I am totally overwhelmed with how it performs. My clothes come out clean and fresh smelling. My daughter, who by the way is 8 years old, can use it with ease. I have had the old fashioned washers, I even had a front loader, another brand, and I was disappointed with both. I cannot see me ever regretting the purchase of this washer. I am going to purchase the matching dryer next. I can't wait."

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™.
