Summary: Bought this machine less than three years ago after searching the web for best value and ratings. What a mistake. The clothes don't get clean and the smell that permeates my clothes are terrible! Tried buying a product to stop smell but it only works sometimes.
Summary: I bought this washer as a set with LG dryer #DLE2516W and love them both! I've had them almost two years and no problem with either of them. The dryer even plays a little song when clothes are dry! For those that are having trouble with balance they must be overloading the machine.
Summary: I purchased this washer just over 2 years ago as my first front loader set.. I must say that to this day I love it! I have two small children so I do a load a day.. The timer feature is great for planing along with the daily start...
Summary: washer doesn't get stuff clean, washed small blanket from twin size bed and when pulled out of washer parts still 100% dry. Understand it is saving water but the amount it uses it too little to get things clean.
Summary: I really thought I had done my research. Reviews were great, it is a good washer, saves water and is quiet, but my machine cause such water hammer sounds like the pipes are going to break which is a concern of mine.
Good front-loader, usual advantages and disadvantages

Summary: It's sad that nobody in the US seems to make a reasonably-priced front-loading washer, and that even a machine like this one (Korean company, presumably made in Korea) is relatively expensive. Maybe they're expensive in Europe and Korea too.
Pros: It's a front-loader, usual in Europe and still unusual in the US for home machines. Like any other front-loader, it uses less water than most top-loaders and seems to get clothes cleaner, and the high spin speed means that clothes are relatively dry once they're washed, and dry quickly in a dryer...
Cons: This model holds a somewhat small load, and full cycles take rather longer than in my old top-loader -- I'd say about twice as long. I live alone and tend to do a cluster of loads of laundry when the clean clothes and bedsheets are about to run out, and I'd prefer a bigger capacity; a family defi...
Summary: Bought this after an exhausting research process (talking to friends, reading reviews, consumer reports, etc) and am very happy with the purchase. Wash takes longer on a front loader, but clothes are very dry when they come out of the spin cycle.
