    This is the first front loader washer I have purchased. After way more due diligence than any one person should ever do for an appliance, I decided to replace my energy hog top loader with this LG front loader. I was hesitant to do so, but in the end just did it. I’ve read horror stories with all of the brands out there, but seemed to read way more positive reviews on LG than any other brand. I bought this model before there were any reviews out there on it taking a risk, but I am glad I did! I have the mind of an engineer, and have probably spent too much time studying how it works. The amount of water it uses for the amount of laundry is minimal. I did a full load of towels and it used about 28 gallons of water in total. To do the same amount of towels in my top loader (double rinse), I would have had to do 2 loads and would have used about 130 gallons. I read reviews about the spin cycle shaking too much. My machine is on a concrete floor, so it might be different on a wood floor, but it doesn’t shake at all. The one thing that I did not read in any of the reviews for any of the front loaders is that if you have particularly high water pressure, these washers will cause your pipes to hammer (or bang throughout the house). I can’t imagine that would be very good for the plumbing. You’ll need to get something called a Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrester. They are very inexpensive and solve the hammering problem. I have extremely few and extremely minor dislikes about this machine. I’ll list my likes and dislikes below and you can judge for yourself. Likes: • I can fit double the laundry in this machine than I could my top loader. I can fill it up completely and it still cleans everything in it. Pillows, blankets, queen size comforter, over a dozen pair of jeans; no problem! • If I dropped a sock on the way down the stairs, I can still go back and put it in after the machine has started. If you hit the pause button, the door will unlock for you. The only times it will not unlock is if it senses that the water is too hot (on the sanitary and allergiene cycles) or if the water level is too high, which it is not on most cycles. • This machine has a cycle for every load possible! And, options like steam that you can add to the cycle. I especially like the Sanitary and Allergiene cycles for my sheets because I have allergies. Yes, they take a while, but it’s worth it. And I can fit 4 sets of queen sheets in there at a time so in the end, I don’t think it’s unreasonable. • Most cycles are pretty fast â€" no longer or not much longer than the top loader. It adjusts the amount of time depending on the load size too. A full load of towels might take an hour, but you’re washing double the amount you could in the top loader and the dry time is cut down because it extracts most of the water in the final spin. Most loads seem to take around 45 minutes. • Very fast spin speeds for things going into the dryer which cuts down dry time and energy used significantly. I tend to hang my dress shirts and pants to dry, so I use a slower spin speed which also does a good job without wrinkling my clothes. • Extremely energy efficient and quiet! It adjusts the amount of water and time depending on the load size. Because it has a direct drive motor, the only sound it makes is the sound of the laundry crashing through the water, which is very minimal. Spinning has a slight hum, but if you close the door to your laundry room, you’ll never know its running. Dislikes (however insignificant): • The washer door is not reversible, so it has to go on the left. Seems like most all front loaders are like this, but it’s annoying because my laundry area is set up for the washer to be on the right. At least they made the drain hose and power cord long enough to accommodate this. • I don’t like the tinted door. If you want to see what’s going on inside, you’ll need a flashlight. • You’ll need to buy the Water Hammer Arrestor mentioned above if you have high water pressure. • I really wish it had a drain & spin with the option of adding a rinse rather than a rinse & spin, but not a big deal. • If you want the hot and warm water settings to actually use hot and warm water, you’ll need to draw the hot water from the water heater to the washer. Because it uses so little water, by the time the hot water reaches the washer, it’s already half full so what you really get is cooler water than expected. If you have a laundry tub, as I do, you just have to run the hot water in the sink until hot water comes out so that the cold water in the pipes aren’t fed into the washer. If you don’t have a sink, you could always use the pre-wash feature to solve the problem. I suppose this is an issue with all front loaders. • I think the price for the machine is not far out of line, but the price for the drawer underneath is outrageous. I opted to not get it because of that. Would be nice to have it.

    This is a terrible washing machine. I was so excited to buy it. It seemed like it had so many features and wash settings. To my great dismay, it has proved to be just the opposite. It has destroyed all my clothes... Even the most indestructible towels I own have been shredded and beaten to a pulp. Even at delicate or hand wash settings, my t shirts and delicate clothes have been destroyed. I had a technician come to inspect it, and have followed all wash instructions re: proper detergent amounts etc... to no avail. I am so sorry that I purchased this washer. It is a terrible product and I would not recommend it to anyone.

            This gets the clothes clean. Many choices, including a "kill all the dust mites" cycle and a sanitize cycle. Seems to take less detergent than our old washer. The detergent cup is removable so I don't have to lift the heavy jug off of the shelf - I can just fill it from the spout where it is. The cup has a slanted bottom, so you have to hold it at an angle to get an accurate reading on the built-in level guage. But I never fill it full, anyway, so it doesn't matter much. Fabric softener and bleach aren't removable, so those have to be poured. The machine doesn't have a reservoir like many others; you have to feed it every time. The cycles are a lot longer than our old machine, but it is very quiet and holds a LOT. It sits up higher than many front loaders, so we didn't need a pedestal. One of those would almost put it at eye-level for a short person!

                I love the large tub in this washer. I can wash queen size comforters with ease. Love the many settings which accomodate any type of wash load, even delicates/hand washables. So easy to use. Only issue is the End tone isn't loud enough. It is a cute tune, but if you're not in the laundry room area, you don't hear it. Same with the dryer. But that's a small issue compared to the wonderful features.

                        Have had it for a few weeks and works well. Lots of different settings and have tried a few of them and they all seem to do a good job. Probably more selections than needed but always nice to have multiple choices. Make sure to put those shake coasters on the bottom to lessen the amount of shaking on the spin cycle.

                                  Comments about LG Turbo Wash White Front Loading Washer:

                                  Attention to details. For example, a lint trap so you don't need those metal strainers that attach to the drain hose and have to be replaced. So if you drain your washer to a sink in stead of the drain line, no worries. It even lets you know when it's time to clean the filter.
                                  Another example, a clean cycle for the washer drum itself.
                                  Also a pre wash dispenser compartment.
                                  And it gets better as you discover how to use it.

                                      Two weeks since installation and it has some great features including that of being quieter than most, most of the time. There are a couple of exceptions such as when it's first started there is some strange mechanical clicking (almost clanking) that is apparently it getting it's mechanical act aligned by its computer. The other, is if it gets its load out of balance before initiating a spin-cycle it can shake the entire room. This can be addressed but the manual is more than vague on how to deal with it. On the very positive side these seem to be short and transient issues and for the most part this is a very quite and (seemingly) solidly built machine. It does get clothes, sheets and toweling very clean, which is what it's supposed to do. And once you get used to the computerized input (versus previous mechanically operated machines) it seems ultimately to do a good job. Ask again in a couple of years...

                                          This is my second LG Washer. They are extremely quiet and effective washers. This washer has great variety, can wash quickly when lightly soiled, or has many options for deep cleaning ("Bright Whites", steam clean, etc). Some have complained that it leaks, and it will IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE. (Many folks don't do the proper maintenance, and then complain when it doesn't work perfectly). If it leaks - whether you've had it for 10 years or a day, follow the trouble shooting instructions - wipe clean the gasket and the door, clean out the trap filter, and add chlorine and put an empty load on "TUB CLEAN". IT WORKS LIKE MAGIC! (I did it soon after I had it delivered). If you do the regularly recommended maintenance, it will work like a charm and last for many years. It's among the top rated by Consumer Reports. Years ago, LG had trouble stocking parts for washers, but now you can order nearly any part on-line and have it delivered in 1-2 days (which I did for my first LG washer / dryer set).
