I started off with my first front loader about 3 weeks ago. I did not like the way it washed, felt it was not enough water, etc., etc. On the phone multiple times with LG trying to figure out what was wrong. Technician was sent and still nothing but problems. I figured I must have just received a Lemon but I know overall LG is a good brand and their customer service was EXCELLENT. A live person answered quickly and they were very knowledgeable. Because I was so happy with the LG customer service, I decided to go with a little more expensive model, which is this 4270 model with the TurboWash. I am so happy that I stayed with LG. This washer really seems to be doing a great job washing the clothes, and uses plenty of water to get the job done. I put most loads on the heavy/bulky setting, soiled level of high to get the most water, and TurboWash option. In 1 hour the clothes are cleaned and the water level goes all the way up to the bottom of the circle opening. I love this washer. It does make some noise when the water is filling into the drum, and the installer says that noise is mainly with LG. Like a whistling or sounds like a jet taking off. After that it is very quiet. I have read hundreds of reviews on so many different models, and so many people not happy with the front loaders due to low water level. This washer does such a great job at washing, and at a fast speed with the TurboWash, that a little noise hearing the water coming into the drum when filling is no big deal at all to get a washer that I am extremely happy with. I have told everyone I know about this great washer and dryer set.

We bought this washer about three months ago and have used it many times. It appears to be well made and is attractive. However, two aspects of it cause us to believe we made a mistake and should've bought a top loader. First, the water level never gets above an inch into the drum and large loads aren't close to being immersed. We rinse three times, as you can smell residual detergent if you don't, and we've cut our powdered detergent volume down by half, to a minimal amount. Second, you cannot wash highly absorbent cotton items, such as a small bath rug, with or without additional items such as a couple of bath towels, because the machine will not spin due to the weight of the load. We've not had this issue with these items with top loaders covering a period of 40 years.

Love this drawer!
Comments about LG 14" Chardonnay Laundry Pedestal Plus Storage Drawer:
I purchased this drawer - one each for my new washer and dryer. I knew, from using my daughter's front loaders that bending over to load and unload would kill my back, which was already giving me problems. I did not intend, nor even think about, storing laundry products in them as there is ample cabinet space in my laundry room to accommodate those things, and I don't have to bend to reach them. The laundry room is right next to the family room so I store warm throws in one of them. I can't leave them on the sofas and chairs because of one yellow and white Maine Coon who leaves his fur everywhere. The one under the dryer stores miscellaneous things like old beat up towels for cleaning up emergency spills, extra curtains for the family room (can't leave things the same for long). In my opinion, these drawers are one of the best purchases I made when moving into my new home.

Another Piece of Garbage
from Bloomington, Indiana
I was excited to buy the washer and dryer set, but I am totally disappointed. The washer does not spin the washer out and is noisy. The doors on both washer and dryer are flimsy. I have spent a day trying to do my laundry with error code after error code. Not worth the time and effort. I am returning the units. There has to better quality out there.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Detroit, MI, United States
We had a previous LG front loader and loved it. This washer seems to have trouble with smaller loads. We get trouble codes and had the washer less than 30 days. Very frustrating since the first washer appliance store delivered was damaged. I question if this washer is too big for the average household.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Unhappy too
from Lake Worth, FL
I waited a month and a half for this washer because I thought I had found an exceptional machine. I have been very disappointed. The washer does seem to get the clothes clean but so did my ten year old bottom of the line. Some of the cycles are very long, as in two hours or more for a sanitizing cycle. When I washed the towels used to clean my home on this cycle, they didn't seem cleaner than from the old machine with hot water. It does use less water and detergent but the front loader requires a lot of extra maintenance. You have to wipe the gasket and laundry product dispenser after each use and every month, it needs to be run through a cycle with machine cleaner. On a faster spin cycle, the clothes stick to the top of the tub and it's hard to get inside to get them. In my laundry room, a pedestal can't work because of the cabinet height and the water supply behind, which must be accessible. I don't feel this was a good value for the money nor is it very user friendly.
Don't buy, it doesn't spin
from hayward, CA
I bought this about 3 months ago, and since then I been through some emails and a technician coming over twice to check out why this washer doesn't spin. It comes down to having to wash ONLY similar items of the same mass and volume. The technician that came over did a great job. But the washer on the other hand, is a waste of money. This thing can't spin for beans. This thing freaks out when you are washing different types of clothing. It just keeps readjusting itself, attempts spin again, then errors out. Really inconvenient for someone trying to wash tshirts and towels, or anything with towels for that matter, in one load.
Great washer with outstanding features
from NH, United States
We wanted a front-loading washer with good features and ratings. We also wanted a washer with optimal energy and water usage. Our electric rates are the highest in the country - savings are important to us. We believe that we have the optimal trade-off in price, prospective life, features and economy.
LOVE my washer...
By Suzi from Sacto
from Sacramento, CA, United States
I've had my new washer for 2 1/2 months and I love it more each time I use it. So many options I still haven't used all of them and may not even know some of them are available!!? I'm very careful with my laundry and this machine allows me to individualize every load I wash.
