I have had this washer for about 3 weeks now, and I absolutely love it! I never thought I would actually look forward to washing clothes. It gets my clothes super clean. I actually think the colors look brighter, the towels and blankets are fluffier, not to mention the fact that I am saving tons of water with this washer. As far as the comments about it being noisy and vibrating. If you do not have it perfectly level in all directions it will vibrate. My husband thought it would be o.k. to just "eyeball it" and it practically vibrated across the room the first time it spun. After I got the level out and totally leveled it, I can't even hear it spinning now. The only sounds I ever hear are the water going into the soap dispenser cups at the beginning of the wash, and my laundry room is on the top floor with no doors. I have read the complaints about the mildew smell, so I am obsessive about drying out the rubber gasket when I get finished and leaving the door open until it dries out. We'll see if I have a problem with that in the future. I have only two complaints. The little chime it plays when it is done isn't loud enough, sometimes I can't hear it, and you can't just open the door and throw in a stray sock you missed. You have to stop it and wait forever for it to unlock the door. These are minor complaints. Overall this is an amazing machine and looks absolutely amazing in the blue. I just want to sit in the laundry room and stare at it

This washer was purchased bacause of the steam clean feature. It is by far the worst washer we have ever owned. It was replaced by LG within the first 2 months we owned it because no one would service it. It vibrates so bad during the spin cycle we can't keep it in place. As soon as we can afford it, we will replace it. We will never own LG appliances again.

      Comments about LG TROMM 4.2 Cu. Ft. White Front Load Allergiene SteamWasher:

      This is the second one we have owned; this one is 3 years old. The only suggestion would be to improve the vibration; in spin mode, even with unit perfectly level, it still tends to walk out of place due to the excessive vibration.

      We like all the options we have for washing. We love the steam feature also. This machine has been in service since October 2007 and is still doing great?

              This has been a pretty good washer, but after six years it is going to have to have a new motor. I've paid much less for washers that lasted much longer!

                  We have had this washer for 3 1/2 years. We have noticed a reduction in water uasge. Doing laundry is no picnic, but the washer makes the job easier! I'm able to do fewer loads which sure makes laundry less of a chore!

                        I do not like this product. The timer is over 30 minutes wrong. Cold Hand & Cold Delicate cycles are too long. A stain sycle should include the option of a COLD Wash/Rinse Temp. The washer is not gentle on delicates or Hand Wash.
