Summary: This steam washer is excellent but LG should pay attention to 2 points. 1) The extra stainless steel hose connection that the retailers push to additionally buy is definitely NOT necessary , because it makes a Hammering banging noise when the water enters the drum. The rubber hose connection that comes with the machine is all that is needed. 2) The font on the dash is way TOO LIGHTLY PRINTED AND THIN.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: We are a very active family of 5. Between football, wrestling, cheerleading and day to day activities we were doing 10+ loads of laundry per week. With this washer, we are able to do half that! Laundry is the last thing I want to do each evening or on the weekends! I would recommend this washer to anyone looking. Make sure you read the owners manual, and learn all of the amazing functions.
Summary: I have had a lot of washers and dryers in my day, but this is like something from outer space. I am so amazed at how little water, detergent and softener it uses. Not to mention how great everything smells. I have not had to use bleach once, not even for my husbands dirty socks (which he walks around the house in). I still haven't figured out all the features and that's half the fun.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, savings on laundry products
Summary: Consumer Reports gave an excellent review on a washer similar to this one. I chose this one because the one reviewed on CR wasn't on the market yet. I purchased the washer and matching dryer about 3 months ago and am very pleased with the function and performance of the pair. It's just my boyfriend and I in our home so our laundry loads are small. I like how this washer can sense the size of your load and adjust the output of water accordingly so that it isn't wasted.
