    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.

          Love the look and extra capacity of this machine. Have only had it for a couple months so far, but so far so good. Love the delay wash; looking forward to checking out the steam feature.

              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!

                  Comments about LG Graphite Steel Front Load Steam Washer:

                  Cons: a plastic shroud came off was found in driveway after the delivery boys left, and they used the standard delivery tools, the 2-man lift strap thingy. Tub springs can be heard bouncing during spin cycle which worries me about its quality. My old one sounded like a jackhammer during spin cycles and not once was i worried that it was gonna break. The tub bounces a lot more than my old one also, could be weaker springs probably. seems to have harder time finding center balance. Pros: no water hammering as others have reviewed could just be my personal setup but my old one had major water hammering so i expected it but it didn't have an issue. Clothes come out nice and clean with no residue. Almost super quiet, my old one sounded like a jackhammer in the basement, this one was soo quiet you hardly notice it. I had to use the flashlight to verify that it was using water after the initial water filling cycle because after that u don't hear a thing and i was sitting 5 inches from the washer when i tested it for the first time. The direct drive does make a whirling sound but you don't notice it unless you are listening for it, like i said i was next to this washer and didn't notice it until every thing else was quiet, and even then you only hear it if you are next to it. My old washer lasted 15 years and was still working but needed parts for worn out ones which ended costing in total more than what i paid for when i bought it, so i decided not to repair and just bought this new lg model. I use to do 2 wash loads and i don't have a lot of clothing with my new lg i only do one load now perfect size for my needs saved me an hour of time. NOTE, the hoses and leveling tool for is included in the tub so look for it. The delivery guys was a third party so they knew zero about my washer and told me my washer didn't come with new hoses. Also make sure your washer is perfectly stable as it will not start the spin cycle if the washer wobbles even at the slightest shaking. My washer sits at a slant in the floor so it was hard to level, but with the included tool it was soo easy i did it in seconds. Did i mention this thing is super quiet? Lastly the washer lets you know its done with not a buzzer but an awesome little tune, the was the icing on the cake for me, lol. so far i had no problems with it and loving it, I hope it lasts as long as my old washer that thing had 15 more years in it but it just wasn't cost worthy to keep it that way anymore.

                      A month ago I purchased the Graphite Steel top-of-line washer. It's a front loader and I love it. My sister and also my son and his family had told me they love, love, love their LG machines. I am waiting for the delivery of the pedestals and the dryer which should be here in a few days. Then the laundry room should be complete. The LG machine really cleans the clothes, yet is gentle on the fabrics. The tones are delightful. I am very happy with my investment.

                          At first we thought the washer was going to be too big and that we did not need the extra tub size but in fact what we found was that the extra size was a small inconvenience considering the substantial time savings that we experienced. We use to have piles of cloths in the laundry room and frequently did 2-3 loads a day but now seem to go days between loads. The cloths come out remarkably cleaner than with our 10 year old front loader. The ability to access the drain to clean it out is a great feature, my old machine had to be taken apart to access the drain and a plugged drain was the ultimate cause of it failing. The only minor cons that I have personally with this machine is that even though the music and lights on the settings are pretty, I would prefer to turn it on and push a button for my setting instead of having to turn a dial (sometimes a couple or three turns) to my desired setting and that the setting titles for the spin speed, water temp, etc are not lit up and are hard to see in low light - will probably memorize the locations of these settings soon, however.

                                    This washer was for a family of 5 including a baby and two nurses so we needed a great washer. I spent days reading reviews from major consumer magazines, online reviews at stores and finally decided this was the one for us. We have had it for 3 months now and it is clearly a great investment for our family. I didn't necessarily think it was wise to spend over $1000 on a washer at first but we shopped around got a good price and have since realized it is worth every penny. Love the large capacity and sterilize settings for scrubs and baby accidents. Would reccomend to any family!

                                        This washer is quiet, thorough, very easy to use. It could be improved by lighting the option category. Water temp, spin speed, etc.. Probably easy to read on a pedastal.
