We read all the review from all over the internet before buying this machine. We even paid for a subscription to Consumer Reports, which gave LG the highest marks across the board for Quality, Performance and Gentleness to clothes. Still, I think we totally lucked out on buying this LG Washer and we couldn't be happier. . If you read complaints about any of the HE Washers (Top Loaders or Front Loaders) about laundry coming out soapy, those people are using detergent that is not HE rated. If there are complaints about unbalanced loads, they are not washing like items in their washer. If their machine is smelling like mildew, they are not leaving the door open so the machine can dry out. If you read your instructions that come with this washer, your washer will be the best washer you have ever owned. You can select water temperature and how fast you want the washer to spin out your clothes. You can press PAUSE and open your machine up to add that piece of clothing or towel you forgot. You can Select a Speed Wash or select from 14 other wash setting with a turn of a dial. Don't be scared off from reading that it takes 90 minutes to do a load of laundry because It all depends on what and how much Laundry is in your washer. The time adjusts to fit the amount and type of laundry in the wash. Clothes dry much faster because they come out of this washer drier so laundry is done faster. This washer is so quite too, all you really hear is the water running into the machine and the music it plays when your load of wash is done. This machine is very easy to use too! I already know I'll buy the matching LG Dryer when my 20 year old dryer breaks down. You get what you pay for and we are glad we bought this LG Washer.

I have had this unit for 4 days now. It hasn't worked properly since day one. First - on the spin cycle, the unit has a vibration/shaking that is, IMHO, not normal. The unit is balanced, at least according to the installers and my level (although I don't own the best being a single woman#. I have tried to move the unit as instructed in the video #push down on it at all corners) - it doesn't budge so it feels like it's solidly connected to the floor. It doesn't jump off the floor when spinning - the entire unit just rocks and shakes and vibrates like crazy. Second - this unit is not as quiet as I would've expected. The "whump, whump, whump" sound as it's pumping out the water is very loud. The sound of the water entering the unit is also very loud. I think these are compounded due to the glass tap which isn't as good of a sound barrier as a solid metal top. Third - the unit front is not solid/firm. When you push on it to move the unit back into place, as I have to do by using my entire body, it bows inward and forms a dent. I've been lucky that the dent has disappeared, except for one time. Now I have a dented machine. There are some good points. It has a HUGE tub that washes a king size comforter with ease. Clothes come out smelling very fresh and the spin cycle takes out almost every single drop of water so that your dry time is considerably less. Bottom line - at the price paid for this unit, I am left extremely disappointed in the overall quality. I have never owned an LG product before and did a lot of online research before making this purchase. What I received is not what I anticipated or expected.

                  Oh, how I wish that I had had this when my children were at home! I can do a week's worth of laundry in no time at all. The capacity is phenomenal, and our clothes come out really clean. Even my husband noticed that our white clothes are brighter, and he's never mentioned laundry before. It's absolutely wonderful.

                          I've had this washer for 3 months now and have nothing but excellent results. I decided to change from another brand that I used for years and years and wish I had done so earlier. My clothes are cleaner and the tub is so large that I'll never be able to fill it :)

                                  I have had my new washing machine only a couple of weeks, and so far I love it, love it, love it! This is my first REALLY NICE washer in 30+ years of owning washing machines, and I find myself stopping in front of my laundry room doorway and just staring at it and thinking how beautiful it is . . . I suspect much the same way men stare at their new car purchases! Love the little tune at the end of the cycles too; my 10+ year old former washer didn't make any sound when it was done, unless you count the clang bang clang it made when everything stopped!

                                      We love this new washer. We were originally trying to get a front loading washer until we realized that our space was too small for one. We bought this washer and we love it. It has a huge capacity and what used to take us 3-4 loads to wash can be done in 2. We also love how it has the capacity sensor as it determines how much water is needed. We love that we don't have to waste as much water as we did before trying to figure out how big our load was.

                                      I love that there is just so much room in this machine! A queen comforter fits with extra room to spare. I do wish that water temp could be changed on all cycles though and that you could do fabric softener on the quick wash cycle.
