Anyone who owns a king sized bed who has ever had to go to a Laundromat to wash their comforter has to have this washing machine. The capacity rivals that of any commercial washer with one exception: It has more features! We had a rather large capacity washer and dryer previously and then upgraded our bed from a queen to a king size. Our large capacity washer and dryer just could not handle the larger sheets, blankets and comforters we now own, not without having to wash them two or three times just to make sure they even got wet. This machine is, in a word; awesome! Not only does it easily handle our largest comforter but does so with ease, and the sheets, not even an issue. We could probably do two or three sets of king sized sheets at one time if we wanted to. And for normal sized loads, I have no doubt that the capacity and features on our LG machine are getting our clothes cleaner than they were when they were brand new! Our old machine had the ability to add an extra rinse cycle which is great for someone with sensitive skin. This machine can add THREE extra rinse cycles if you need it! I honestly enjoy doing the laundry now. I never thought I'd be able to say that!

I have had this washer for almost 2 years. A couple of months after we bought it, we would find water on the floor coming from the bottom of the machine. This happens every 2-5 months. It will leak, then we will do another load right after, and it won't leak again for a few months. We had a few technicians come out when it was under warranty to check it out, but because it happens very intermittently, they were not able to fix it or figure out what is going on. So, I call every time it leaks just to have a record of it. We use HE powder detergent, and I only put a small or medium amount in, even if I am doing a very large load. I also clean the tub faithfully every month, and it still happens. Other than the leak, I do love the machine, as I can now wash all my comforters at home - the capacity is great.

      Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

      Had another washer in which was bought new (a competitor's brand), and the main drum bearing started going out just after 3 years, (than goodness for extended service plans) refunded full price. Ordered the LG WM8000HWA after a long look around. Delivered and I installed it no problem. Read manual and then did a load of clothes. Have had no issues with this unit, does a fine job, nice and quite too. Clothes have come out clean and fresh and almost dry. Less time in dryer.

            Before I purchased I did loads of research as I do my best to be an informed consumer. It's rated #1 and even though It's only been a few weeks I'm glad I made this purchase

            Service and delivery comments:

            My sales rep Jeff Lowe is AWESOME to work with..my brother Kevin referred Jeff to me lauding how great Jeff is and I trust my brother! Jeff delivered as I was told he would...helpful,courteous,prompt response and gave me a great price..Ive already referred 3 people to Jeff..
            The delivery guys were incredible.....courteous and competant..this is a large washing machine. I am still astonished how they did not even bump anything while bringing it inside and downstairs. They took their time connecting it and making sure it was level..they gave me some tips for using...
            My experience with ABT was fantastic..Thank You

                Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

                I upgraded to these machines and they have been a disappointment other than that they are quiet. First - the lights go out too quickly so you can't see inside to remove clothes. Second - The clothes especially workout clothes soaked with sweat time and again do not come out clean smelling. Even clothes that are lightly soiled often don't smell fresh. I keep looking for the perfect cycle to wash items that will give the results I want. Towels have been a big challenge to wash and stay clean smelling even after a couple of uses. If there was an odor to begin with it seems to come back right away. Third, the panel lights are really hard to read. The design really needs work as the lighting has to be just right or you have to keep moving around to see settings. I also think you should be entitled to use or change settings if you want to for desired temperature. Overall, while my old machines were VERY OLD the cleaned the clothes much better!

                          This washer rocks it out! Huge capacity plus turbo wash and steam cleaning. Clothes come out fresh and clean every time. Super large capacity has reduced our wash loads by about a third (four people household including two teens that never wear anything twice). No problems after about six months. Highly recommend this washer.

                              So glad I bought this product. Only drawback is keeping it clean. Need to drain every two weeks and use bleach on the inner lining every month. Love how much I can wash and how clean clothes come out! Can wash my king size comforter and comes out smelling great and clean!

                                  I was pleasantly surprised to see that this came with hot and cold water hoses--I'd already bought and hooked up my own so that didn't help me, but perhaps it'll help you.

                                  This is a very large machine, for better or worse. Measure your space carefully! It's also very heavy, so I'd recommend hiring professional help (if you have stairs to traverse). There's no way one can move it on one's own, especially if a pedestal is involved.
