We got rid of a Kenmore HE3 washer and dryer after 10 years. Never had a problem with them, but we like to replace appliances at least every 10 years. This pair of LG's seems to replicate the HE3, although it seems to not release the clothes from the washer.<br /><br />Sometimes, say when washing towels, they are all stuck to the interior wall after the wash is completed. The HE3 never did this. It would somehow fluff them up and get them ready for the dryer.<br /><br />Speaking of which, sometimes the clothes come out very wrinkled, but seem to iron out after the dry cycle.<br /><br />The normal wash time is very acceptable (40 min), as is the dry time...about the same.<br /><br />I don't recall the time for washing white towels, with an extra rinse, but it was pretty long...maybe two hours.<br /><br />Also, the buttons that override the default settings are not lined up beneath the options they effect. That makes it pretty confusing.<br /><br />Another point...I noticed CR reviewers rate this at 2.8, but yet LG, Sears, BestBuy, and Lowes, all rate the units at over 4.5, I don't understand this.
