like many people also have a lot of laundry but i look forward to washing with this pair of LG machines. i am retired and find myself running around the house looking for anything i can to put into the washer & dryer, which brought me to my bed pillows. i was amazed by the way my pillows look i don't have to throw them away anymore. i just put the cycle on sanitize and it takes out all the yellowing & stains and my pillows come out looking brand new and smelling fresh.When my mother in law got sick i washed her pillows of which she had for ten years or more and they came out looking brand new. i can wash up to three regular sized or two king sized pillows just put cycle on high spin to cut on drying time you'll be amazed too.
I was skeptical about how much bigger this washer was than all the others, and all I can say is I am able to fit twice the amount I was able to wash in my previous top load HE washer. I can literally fit 2 laundry baskets full of clothes and they come out smelling clean and fresh!!! It takes me 1/2 the time to do twice the amount of laundry...so I am still adjusting to all the "free time" I have not doing laundry!
Love the large capacity. Wish I bought the WHITE because the Graphite Steel is very, very dreary in my basement. Also, wish LG would put LIGHTS on the inside drum, especially the washer. When I open the doors, I can't see what's inside. There is a light that goes on sometimes in the dryer, but not necessarily when you're just opening the door. Wish the DELAY feature offered a shorter timeframe than 1 hour as often I just want to delay the wash 10 minutes or so. I can stop the wash cycle if I forget to add an item. Just have to reset it from scratch. You can open the door when there's still water in the drum, but you have to turn the cycle off. There's hardly any space to add fabric softener or liquid bleach. Also, the fabric softener & liquid bleach bins are very difficult to remove. Wish it was fingerprint proof. Wish the 5.2 cubic foot came in CHERRY RED, which is the color I preferred.
I've had the same washer for over 15 years and many technicsion visits. It was time for a change. I couldn't be happier with my new washer! It's big enough to wash all my bed sheets and clothes at once. It's very user friendly and and easy to operate. I feel like my clothes even come out cleaner.
I have only had this machine for a couple of months, but as a mom of three toddlers it has been a life saver. I used to do laundry everyday, usually multiple loads. Now I can go a few days without doing laundry and in just a few loads be completely done. The loads do take longer than my old machine, but considering the amount of laundry is three times as much it isn't a huge trade off to me. I did talk to customer service and now only use two tablespoons of detergent instead of the detergent companies recommendation (note: Detergents I use are ALL or Tide).
It's amazing how much faster and quieter it is compared to my old washer. It gets the clothes clean and it tells you when they are done. Even my children enjoy washing there clothes. The end cycle signal is great.
Our second front loader after a Sears Elite washer we had for 10 years. This LG is faster, quieter and has many more features. A really terrific machine.
love the capacity, steam clean, and technology of the machine
We do a lot of laundry, and lots of bulky or large items. This washer does a great job. A bit of a learning curve, but easy once you get the hang of it.
We got this machine to replace a top loader. It has cut our laundry time in more than half. We went from doing 6 loads a week to only 2 or 3. Its performance has no rival. It is super quiet and very efficient. It uses a lot less water and saves us in energy because clothes come out so dry, that they require very little time in the dryer. It has so many cycles and options that you can pretty much wash anything on it. It is simply awesome.
