    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!

    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.

                Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

                We gave our daughter our old washer/dryer so we researched purchasing new for ourselves. This was the best rated machine we found. We really like the size, the look, the way it cleans the clothes. The only concern we have is how loud the machine is. In reading all the reviews here, everyone remarks how quiet the machine is, but that is not our experience. We called the service technician to come look at the machine after having it about one month. Apparently LG has something which shuts the water off abruptly causing the pipes to shake a little and making quite a racket. LG also has some unique feature which rocks the drum back and forth and then throws the clothes (particularly when on delay). This also makes quite a loud noise. It is not really a problem unless you want to do laundry at a quiet time of day.

                    I bought this product so that I could save money on the amount of detergent we were going through, to save on water, electricity and to be able to wash my king sized bedding. I am so pleased with this washer and its performance.

                        I can do half as many loads of laundry per week due to the extra large capacity of this laundry set. And it takes less time per load! I also love the multitude of options for type of load, adding extra rinses and using the team options. This washer also has a 10 year warranty on the direct drive, which is better than any set I have had before. Best purchase I have made in appliances!

                              Purchased this because of it's high reviews and how it was awarded an Energy Star Most Efficient for 2014. I've only owned it less than 3 months but in this short time I am extremely happy with my purchase. My clothes have come out reliably clean. I mainly use the Sensor setting to determine water and how long the wash should run and that's a great feature to have. Overall, amazing craftsmanship! Highly recommended

                                  One of the first things that I noticed was how quiet it ran. The size of the tub allows me to wash my comforter so that I don't have to carry it to have it wash somewhere else. The only thing I can say that is a little bothersome is that it tends to tap during the spin cycle due to unbalancing in the tub. It seems to happen more than I thought it would.

                                          Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

                                          We decided to purchase a new washer and dryer set after our 14-year-old set finally started to break down. After copious research and reading up on all the consumer-review sites, we decided to go with the mega-capacity of the WM8000HVA washer and its companion dryer, the DLEX8000V. We've had them for over a month now and they have performed flawlessly. The mega capacity is great because it allows us to wash an entire king-sized set of bedding at once, which was essential - no going to the laundromat in order to wash a king-sized comforter! In addition to simply being able to wash more clothes with less water, you also get a bevy of modern features, such as Steam Clean, which is nice for animal bedding. Yes, wash times take longer, but so what? These things are so efficient, and so much easier on your garments, that its well worth a little extra wait. No problems with musty odors, since they have a little magnet built into the door that allows it to stay ajar without swinging open. And anyway, just following the directions by wiping down the door and seals after each wash and a monthly clean with a bleach solution and nothing in the washer keeps everything tip-top. Highly recommended!
