      Comments about LG 5.2 Cu Ft Mega Capacity TurboWash Front Loading Washer:

      This washer is so versatile. The number of wash settings, and the ability to override certain settings is very handy. It works perfectly, and we save on detergent and softener compared to the last washer we had.

              Had to buy a new washer, first purchase of a top loader was disastrous. It ruined a new quilt I made. This washer is so large my laundry is done in no time and no more ruined quilts! I love it. Still getting used to how much water is DOESN'T use. The only thing I can't easily do is see the feature controls on the panel as they don't light up and I have a dark laundry room. I have them memorized now though ;)

                              So far, washer seems to be very efficient. Has great capacity and cleaning power. Steam feature on white cycle improves cleaning. I do have a few concerns. The bleach/ detergent/ fabric softener compartments can be awkward to fill, especially bleach. Liquids tend to splatter. I wish drum light would stay on longer for loading and unloading and I wish the ENTIRE control panel would light up to make it easier to read. My biggest issue is NO SOAK CYCLE. Even though you may lengthen the wash cycle by soil level, it is nice to have a soak cycle.

                              Due yo its large capacity I can wash bulk bedding.

                                  I purchased the LG washer and dryer combo this past January. I am extremely happy with both. This washer leaves my whites very clean without the bleach. The dryer is very efficient and leaves my clothes wrinkle free. I would recommend this combo washer and dryer to all my friends.

It is relatively quiet and has many features that other washers do not have, such as NFC, filter, self cleaning, etc... I have had it for a little over a month, and so far, I love it.
