    I spent a great deal of time researching washing machines before I made this purchase. I read reviews online, visited multiple stores to compare products, and spoke to sales people and friends. Product reviews were strong for the LG machines, and this was supported by personal feedback from friends who already owned a machine. There is negative feedback online on every make and model by every manufacturer, and it becomes difficult to sort through. I selected the LG because of overall good feedback, the dimensions of the machine were better suited to my space (many models by other manufacturers are deeper front-to-back) and also because of its large capacity. With about six weeks experience, I can say I am very happy with this machine. I love not having to take large bedding and tablecloths to the laundromat. I find even regular bedding is much less tangled than with my old top-loader. The steam feature did seem to improve stain removal on some items, and the sanitary cycle did a good job of removing stubborn odors. It is easy to understand the panel settings and make changes as desired. The machine is quiet and I like the countdown display showing the minutes remaining per load. As with all front-loaders, we need to be careful about not leaving wet clothes in the machine very long after the cycle finishes, and this can be inconvenient, as is wiping down the seals when finished for the day, and then leaving the door open. Overall, however, I am extremely happy with the performance of my LG washer. Laundry seems much less a chore and, because I don't now have a separate pile of things that need to go to the laundromat, my laundry room is neater also. I purchased the extended warranty with my machine because it seems as home appliances have more electronic components, repairs are more likely and more costly. I hope I never have to use it.

    This thing won't do small loads; it won't do large loads. Forget thorwing 1 bath towel in with childrens clothes... It takes 3+ hours to do a normal wash. I hate it! I hate it! I hate it! It takes FOREVER to find balance when it tries to spin, therefore it can't wash 1 towel, or bed sheet, or small blanket or a pair of mens jeans. I wish I could get my money back for it. I'm seriously ready to put it on Craigs List. The next load that finishes with "UE" (can't find balance so didn't spin) I may throw it in the garbage!!!!!!!

        Comments about LG WM2801H White 4.5 Cu. Ft. Front Load SteamWasher:

        We have a family with 3 teenage boys and there always seems to be a mountain of clothes and towels to wash. We purchased our LG Washer after learning of it's high capacity, but quickly learned that there's so many other benefits. The controls and features are easy to use, we use less water and electricity, and our clothes have never been cleaner. We thought we'd never really use the steam wash feature, but found out it's great for removing stains. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.

            This washer is great, it is very quite, handles just about anything you throw at it and is easy to operate. The only negative I can find is the wash times on some of the cycles are extrodinary (up to 2 hrs for a load) and some times it has issues with self balancing (which extends the time even longer than what the timer says). Other than this, it is a great washer.

                I've owned this machine for almost a year. I love the fact that you can choose to do quick loads for a few article of clothing with minimal detergent. Another feature of this machine is the idea that you can just press 'start' twice to use the regular cycle for day to day laundry ( eg. towels, t-shirts etc.). It's a great machine.

                    My clothes haven't been this clean since purchased from the store! The machine makes a few noises that I haven't heard from older models, but it doesn't walk across the floor and it can handle large loads.

                      This front load washer hold a large load well. It takes very little detergent ...1 tablespoon (15 ml) and very little water. Love the delay to turn on feature. I put a load in before bedtime and in the AM its ready to hang. Remembering to dry the door seal/glass as well as drying the detergent dispensers after use is bothersome but worth it or there is a musty smell. It is a case of the thing you own really owning you I think. The door is large and makes loading and unloading effortless. The manual has a lot of information and is easy to read. Recommend taking the time to read it first.

                        I enjoy using this washer so much I look forward to doing Laundry. I find cloths are actually softer using steam wash and when it is time to remove clothing it takes a much lesser time to dry them a big plus I have noticed a saving in utilities.

                            I have owned this washer for about a year now. It is relatively quiet. It uses less water then any other washer I have owned. It is also great for large loads. It takes a little longer to wash then my last washer. But it sure gets the clothes clean. The soap bleach and fabic dispenser are in a great location. I also love the large doors. Along with the pedestal it makes loading and unloading a much easier job.

                              I've had this machine for several months now. It is still working fine. My clothes come out clean. There is very little water usage. It is quiet and the bells and the done alarm are pleasant to hear. There is only one thing I would change. The tub clean cycle only uses cold water. Hot or even warm water would be much better to cut soap scum with. Other than that, this machine has been doing a fine job.
