Very Good washer
Date:October 25, 2011
Best Features: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings
"Does a great job washing, and leaves the laundry nearly dry, so the dryer doesn't have to run as long. The only issue so far (after 5 months of heavy use (3-4 loads per day) is that there are occasional out of balance. Part or all of that is the design of top loaders (front loaders don't have out of balance). The washer attempts to fix the OOB by rerunning the Rinse & Spin cycles (thereby using more water), succeeding maybe 50% of the time.
The machine could use a better system of balancing the machine during installation - the lid is NOT level, requiring a service call just to rebalance the machine (in order to reduce OOB washes). Just having an area where a level could be placed - the top is slightly slanted - would help."

Wow what a spin
Date:October 25, 2011
Best Features: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
"When the old front loader died we wanted another but couldn't find one with the depth dimensions we needed so we looked and looked and looked and finally someone demonstrated the LG top loader and we like what we saw. I like the extra large capacity for jeans and bedding etc. The spin could be stepped down a cycle as the jeans get so dry that they wrinkle pretty badly. As I don't machine dry this was a problem but problem solved by putting them in the LG dryer on low rack dry for about 10 min."

Love at first Load
Date:October 24, 2011
Best Features: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
"We weren't in the market for a new washer OR dryer, but when a bad customer service experience turned into an opportunity to purchase a new washer and dryer we jumped on it. We did lots of research - days of it - non stop before we decided on this little beauty. I am SO glad that we made our purchase. This machine is AMAZING! We love all of the various cycles on it - and it's so much quieter than our old machine! We cracked up at some of the reviews before we bought it - people said the only thing they had to complain about was the fact that they could not download other songs to play when the load was complete - we love hearing that sweeet little tune that it plays when our wash is done. We loved it so much that we told our friends about it and they bought the exact same pair - and they love theirs too!!! Thanks LG for making my life easier and my clothes cleaner!"

Washing Wizard!

"I was forced to purchase a new washer after my five year old front loader bit the dust way earlier than expected. I was looking for a quality constructed washer, high efficiency with a large capacity. After comparison shopping, watching in store demo videos and asking lots of questions, I decided on the LG with Wave Force technology. I was so fascinated by the machine, I stood and watched the first minutes of the cycle. It cleans the clothes so well and offers many setting options. I have only owned it about two weeks and so far have not been disappointed!"

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™.
