Summary: I love this washer but it's the first nice one I've ever owned so I don't have much to compare it to. I like the pre-set options and that the temperature and rotation speed are changeable with any wash. I also like the pre-wash and extra rinse options. It does a great job being quiet AFTER it's bumped around for about 10 seconds. It makes quite a bit of noise while it's figuring out how to stabilize itself.
Summary: We debated about spending that much money on a washer and dryer. We have had the 3360 set for about 4 months and have absolutely no regrets. The steam feature alone is worth every penny. The key is not to use too much detergent which will prevent soap buildup which causes that "mildew' smell associated with front loaders which has never been an issue for me. Use less than recommended as HE is all now 2X concentrate and manufacture recommendations are based on 1X.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: So far this washing machine has been absolutely FANTASTIC!!! We have had it for a little over a month now, and do about 2-3 loads of laundry per week. I haven't had the chance to try all of the different wash cycles, but have used the normal, delicates, and steam sanitary settings, and all of them have been great. All of our clothes and our 1 year old daughter's clothes have come out clean, even after spaghetti night.
Summary: This washer gets our clothes cleaner and saves energy. We can fill the washer and the auto sense checks the weight. It does vibrate some on start-up but once the balancing takes place it settles down. I use a wet dry vac to clean the silicon seal and get rid of the dog hair that accumulates there. This also prevents any mildew.The washer is heavy and require two to lift it. It has handles on each side making it easy to grip. Many features and no problems to date.
Summary: Love this washer and totally worth the price. Only one issue, and that is a slight leak around the door seal (have had repair here 4 times already and seal replaced twice). Machine is quiet, can take the constant use my large family dishes out, and looks terrific doing it! I have a tiny laundry room and had purchased the pedestals, but returned them and got the stacking kit instead.

Summary: The LG washer is great! First, it has a clean look that doesn't look like a typical washer. Second, it runs like a finely tuned sports car. It's quiet and smooth running. I like that I can increase the spin speed to get the clothes dryer. This speeds up the time it takes to dry, which is nice if you want to wear what's in there right away. Another cool option is the steam features. You can use steam to wash bedding or unmentionables, and it doesn't shrink the clothes.
