Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not what I thought it will be I have this washer for about over a year already. It uses very limited water but I am not convinced it cleanse out the laundry well. I have to get extra rinse to make sure it get soap out of the clothes well. I have to empty the drain spout every time I wash for the fear that the water that was not totally drained by the machine will leak out on the floor. This happened several times. Even though I clean the machine each month for soap scum, I don't take chances for the water to spill out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appears to be a very good machine I am not an expert on washers and have only my OLD one to compare but ithe new one uses much less water and electricity, gets the cloths clean and is much quieter. Also faster per load and larger loads - how can you beat that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this! This machine is not good. It washes the clothing but it leaves a bad smell in the machine. Even after cleaning and drying out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Plain Fantastic I have finally been able to install our new LG washer. I love the extra large load capacity and the large opening in which to place oversize blankets and comforters through. The ability to fine tune my exact wash size and loads is extremely useful. I am impressed with how well this front loader wrings out the close which, in turn, reduces drying time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life is Good We purchased this washer two years ago and it's still lasting great. We love how it automatically readjust when washer spin cycle is off. We really love this washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this 8 months ago to replace a whirlpool system. The noise and vibration are ridiculous, no matter how large or small the load. Larger loads frequently will be unbalanced to the degree requiring emptying the washer and, if possible separating the load into 2 bundles and running a drain and spin cycle. Don't think you will be doing large loads or bulky items like comforters without hassle.

Compared with LG conventional drying modes, LG’s powerful Air-drying setting can save users nearly 7,000 liters of water per year. LG’s Eco-Hybrid dryer features an Eco mode and a Speed mode, letting the owner choose between optimal energy and time savings. Using sophisticated heat pump technology, Eco mode achieves A++ energy efficiency. Speed mode also provides great energy efficiency, with an A grade while taking 30 percent less time [4] to complete a cycle. An ideal solution for delicate items, LG’s Eco-Hybrid dryers can dry clothes even at low temperatures, reducing fabric damage and shrinkage. These advanced dryers are also equipped with LG’s unique Auto Cleaning System, which cleans the dryer’s condenser up to seven times per cycle. Built to stand up to repeated usage, this durable system optimizes energy efficiency as well as drying performance. Moreover, any build-up of lint in the condenser over time is also minimized...^IFV
