Summary: I think this washer is beautiful to look at and has a sleek shiny stainless interior. I am glad to have a front loading machine because I am convinced it is better for the clothes to not be "agitated" and it does save water. Unfortunately, it is impossible to figure out how much detergent to use.
Summary: Overall I'm satisfied with this washer. Cleans clothes well, although our whites get pretty dingy. Could it be the plant based detergent I use? However, we installed this washer on the riser drawer, and the washer rocks so much that it rocks the entire house.
Summary: The washing machine works well and has all the cycle options I need. The manual recommends cleaning the pump filter once a month. It is located at the bottom of the machine. I have found that the smelly water does not flow into a bowl because the tubing it too low--water does not flow uphill.
Summary: Like all the options re water temp, clothes cleanliness, etc. Cleans well, uses less water, but seems to take a long time. I leave the door open after use to keep out any smell of mustiness that that I have read can occur with front load washers. Overall, pretty happy with my washer.
Summary: My new LG does not shake the house. It is easy to use and I like the little melody instead of a buzzer that signals the end of the wash cycle. The front clean out is very convenient. I would like a spin only cycle but unlike my GE I haven't had the need for it.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Conclusion: I purchased pedestals for my washer and dryer. I purchased them for two reasons: One was to raise the height and reduce the need to bend since the doors on the machines are pretty low otherwise. Two was to be able to store my laundry chemicals in them.
Summary: I love all the settings on this washer and the fact that it fits in a small space but still washes a ton of clothes. We have 3 kids and do a lot if laundry. It is very easy to use. We stacked it in a small apartment and my kids can even use it.
