Clean Clothes Well
Spins Clothes Dry
I've owned this washer for just over 1 year. I wash clothes literally everyday. I did not experience the issues of other reviewers with the hammering pipes. I have a new construction home, and have not had any issues whatsoever with this washer. This is the first front loader I've owned, and I was hesitant to purchase a front loader because I tend to add clothes once the wash cycle has started and was nervous a front loader would not allow this. However, since this LG model uses so little water, it allows you to add laundry even after the wash cycle has begun. MAJOR PLUS!! I have washed everything in this washer from clothes, towels, comforters, rugs, and dog bedding. The clothes always come out clean- I've never needed to re-wash them. We use very thick heavy bamboo fiber towels, and the washer has an effective spin cycle that leaves the clothes barely wet when finished- so they certainly spend less time in the dryer. With bulky items such as heavy rugs, you can certainly hear they are off-balance during the spin cycle. Also, we had this washing machine set up on the second level of our home by the bedrooms. You cannot hear the washer when you are on the same floor. However, during the spin cycle you can hear the washer from the first floor-- it vibrates the house and sounds like a helicopter flying overhead. That said, I did not purchase the optional vibration reduction mat.. so I'm not sure if that would make a difference or not. There are a few added features this machine offers which I love: first, you can save your favorite custom setting. It is easy to program and then you need only touch one button to start your favorite cycle. Second, I love the Speed Wash setting. It takes 21 minutes to wash a load of laundry on this setting. And finally, I love the delay start. I put the laundry in the washer in the evening, and delay the start until an hour before I wake up the next morning. This way, I can wash an additional load of laundry overnight and can simply throw it in the dryer in the morning. Overall, this washer has served us well. It was our first LG appliance purchase and we were a little hesitant. However, we have had no issues.
