    Because of the size, I'm able to wash two queen size pillows. Not a stain was left when the cycle finished. Impressive, just like new! I've washed my queen size mattress pads with ease. Finally, to my great surprise and satisfaction, I was able to wash the King size comforter (102"x86") I have. I had my doubts as I stuffed the comforter into the machine, but it actually washed it using the JUMBO WASH setting plus the TurboWash option. For our underwear, I used the Sanitary cycle, which is stated to kill 99.9% of bacteria. The machine has an internal water heater to get the water to EXTRA HOT. All of our underwear came out like new. For the towels there's even a TOWEL cycle setting for excellent cleaning results and the high spin cycle removes most of the water to reduce drying time. I can feel that my towels are dryer coming out of the washing machine than they were when I had my old top loader. I'm SO VERY HAPPY with this purchase. I don't mind the money that I spent on it. I don't have to trudge to the laundromat to wash my large items anymore. It's actually great to knock out a week's worth of laundry in just a few short hours.

    Started having issues as soon as the warranty ended. This is too expensive of a product to have issues after a year and a half. The button to turn it on is off center, and will not push in easily. It takes about 5 minutes to push a button now, and support did not have a fix for this. I can still get it to work, by pushing it around for a while on the side that isn't fitting in easily. It is frustrating to put a bunch of clothes in the laundry, and not know whether I can get it to start or not.

        GREAT Washer! Uses less water and less energy. I can wash my King Size comforter with no problems. No more tips to the laundrymat - Yay!!! LOTS of option/cyces to choose from, even steam cycles. My two-year old and I enjoy watchng the tub go round-and-round. Definitely worth the money!

            I was amazed how much cleaner my clothes are. I previously owned an older top load washer and I an additional plus was how much my water bill decreased.

            My washer has been replaced.

            Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

            This model was replaced because I had several problems with the washer. Thank goodness for the warranty! The sales person should warn customers about possible water hammering (banging) noise when washer is filling with water that is not covered under your limited warranty.

                Our washing machine died and left us with a trip either to a Laundromat, or to replace the machine. We choose the latter. Our size requirement and the need to replace the machine immediately narrowed the field greatly. We decided on the LGWM8000HVA 5.2 cu. ft. partly because we had purchased LG appliances before, but mostly because it met all our requirements and then some. We are very happy with all our LG appliances and would recommend them to anyone in need of new appliances.

                    Bought the big capacity washer and matching dryer. Couldn't wait to try them out. What an amazing pair. It's just a thrill to watch the washer weigh the clothes, then decide how much water to use, which is really a small amount... The dryer is also amazing. Best washer and dryer we ever had. Got the matching bases for each also. Nice looking, heavy duty machines. Not only saving on water but also on the laundry detergent. Also don't have to do laundry as much due to the big drums. I would suggest these to anyone.

                        This is a great product with n number of features, specially the Turbo wash, Stream technology, load balancer, front water sprinkler and so on .. The rinse cycle is absolutely clean and dry, the cloths are almost dry once wash is done. Energy efficient, with capacity to handle bulk loads in one go, I don't see a energy bills going up. I am very happy with my Washer. Thanks to LG for making such innovations.

                                Purchased this washer about 6 months ago. We have a large family and so far it is working great. Owned several top loading washers in the passed and they haven't lasted more than a few years. This washer does clean the clothes better and it has great energy and water saving features.

                                    Love this BIG MOMMA washer & matching dryer!!! I work shift work so our laundry piles up for 3 days (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 grade school) at a time and I can load this BIG MOMMA washer and dryer and have our laundry done in 2 to 3 loads tops. I wanted the biggest and the best that was available and I got it. So far so good. It is a little expensive but well worth it as I am not spending my first day off work doing laundry for 12 hours straight. I just got this set in April 2014 so we haven't had it very long but my favorite feature is the set it and forget it; I can set a load to wash 5 or 6 hours after I go to sleep and when I wake up pop them in the dryer and the clothes don't spend all day in the wash just sitting there getting stinky, absolutely love it!!

                                    Comments about LG White Mega Capacity TurboWash Front Load Steam Washer:

                                    I USE IT OFTEN AND I LOVE IT. WASHES WELL, LOVE THE OPTIONS IT GIVES YOU. WASHES WELL EVEN IN DELICATE CYCLE. BUT I DO ADD NON CHLORINE STAIN REMOVER TO MOST CYCLES, THING THAT I USED TO DO WITH OTHER WASHING MACHINES AND DID NOT DO SUCH A NICE JOB. I CAN FIT SO MUCH IN IT THAT MY OLDER DRIER HAS PROBLEMS TO DRY :)). I LOVE LOVE LOVE. AND I HOPE IT WILL LAST
