    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:

        MY HUSBAND VOLUNTEERS TO HELP BUILD AND MAINTAIN "THE APPALACHAIN AND MOUNTAIN TO SEE TRAILS" IN NC. HE CUTS TREES, PULLS STUMPS, REMOVES GRANITE ROCKS, FALLS INTO WET MUD, UNKNOWNINGLY BRUSHES AGAINST POISONS IVY AND OAK, SOMETIMES SUMAC, SITS IN ANIMAL FECES AND OTHER BACTERIA LADEN ENVIRONMENT. OFTEN HE SUSTAINS CUTS AND SCRAPES AND GOES BACK THE VERY NEXT DAY FOR MORE "RETIREMENT FUN". HE IS A CANCER SURVIVOR AND NEEDS TO PROTECT HIMSELF FROM BACTERIAL INFECTIONS. SO WHEN HE ARRIVES FROM THE TRAIL, HIS CLOTHES GO IMMEDIATELY INTO A PLASTIC GARBAGE BAG; THEN INTO OUR LG STEAM WASHER ON THE SANITARY CYCLE. THIS CYCLE IS SO GOOD, HIS CLOTHES IMMERGE PERFECTLY CLEAN, SANITIZED AND READY TO COVER HIS BODY AND YESTERDAY'S SKIN SCRAPES FOR ANOTHER DAY OF FUN IN THE WOODED MOUNTAINS. LG'S SANITARY CYCLE IS THE MAIN REASON HE HAS NEVER HAD AN INFECTION AND RARELY HAS ANY POISON IVY RASH. DURING THE PAST 5 YEARS, OUR LG HAS SANITIZED OUR SHEETS, TOWELS, DISH TOWELS AND HAND TOWELS. IT IS ENORMOUSLY EFFECTIVE DURING THE COLD AND FLU SEASON. THE SANITARY CYCLE IS AS IMPORTANT AS OUR YEARLY FLEW SHOT. SIMULTANEOUSLY, IT WASHES DELICATE CLOTHES WITH GENTLE FINESS. EACH CYCLE WORKS PERFECTLY, DRYING TIME IS REDUCED AND IT NEVER FAILS TO WORK AS DESIGNED. INCIDENTALLY, SERVICE HAS NEVER BEEN NEEDED. INITALLY, I THOUGHT IT TO BE A LITTLE PRICEY. YOU SOON LEARN QUALITY IS REMEMBERED LONG AFTER PRICE HAS BEEN FORGOTTEN. LG CONTINUES TO BE A QUALITY MANUFACTURER OF HOME APPLIANCES FOR HOMEOWNERS WHO DON'T WANT TO WASTE THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY ON APPLIANCES NOT INTENDE TO LAST.

            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.

                          I've had my LG Steamwasher for 2 years now & I still love it! The many different combination of cycles make it really great. My water bill actually went down since I've been using my washer. I love the way it calculates how much water to use. Sometimes I turn on the tub light just to see what's going on in there. The cycles are long, but worth it. I can wash just about anything & the chore of doing laundry has been so much easier now. We have the matching dryer as well and it's just as great. I brag about my washer & dryer all the time.

                              I absolutely love this washer! It has a very large capacity...we only end up with 2-4 loads a week. The sanitary cycle is great at getting my whites cleaner and brings the dog's beds back to brand new. I love the steam cycle as a wrinkle releaser for the special occasion clothing that aren't worn often. It has minimized our soap and water usage...I buy a 64 load powder, once every 10-11 months. And our clothes last much, much longer. Great buy and an excellent long term investment. Will save you money for years!
