wash times are very long. Over 1 hour for standard wash. cannot hear the chime when finished washing. Wash cycle is very quiet.
Thanks to LG and Sears wee are now owners of this awesome washer. We went with the bigger capacity washer to ensure we can wash big loads. No regrets! Works like. Charm. Thanks LG. Thanks Sears.
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 received this with matching dryer two days ago, and I'm pleased. With ours resting on a concrete floor, it's quiet. In fact, it hums and whirs pleasantly. The chimes are as catchy as Nintendo melodies. I was concerned about was long wash times. However, because the washer weighs each load, and because of various shorter cycles and a Turbo-wash feature, wash times can be much shorter. It all depends. My clothes do come out cleaner than ever. Button and dial feel are the best I've tried, although I think there's room for improvement here. Door action is smooth and solid. I was surprised to see the energy star slip on my machine estimate the average yearly electricity cost to be $10. You read that right: Ten. Dollars. Efficient! The matching dryer's SteamFresh setting took some crusty, stale, unfolded laundry and freshened it right up for folding, leaving the clothes soft, and static- and wrinkle-free. Lastly, on both units I love the time-remaining display.
We have a family of five, with two kids who are potty training. We bought this washing machine because we couldn't wash one complete set of bedding at a time in our old top loader. With this new machine we can was both sets of bedding (including comforters) and still have room to wash more. We can also wash everything on our Cal-King bed with one load, and we still have additional space in the drum. We love the space, but we honestly have never packed it full yet. Maybe it's bigger than we needed?
This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned and getting repair is even worse. I would rather go to the dentist. I bought & received Jan 10, January 21 would not work. Called sears for repair they came the next day. I washed one load and washer quite again. Now it will take 17 days to get a repairman to come. Mean time I cannot wash clothes. I am taking back to store and get money back. I will go back to the $300.00 top load machine.
I am quite happy with the machine so far, but I have yet to try a BIG, BULKY comforter. The machine did go off balance with 1 heavy blanket that wasnt very large, but was in the big barrel by itself....I must say I am worried. I will update when I try the comforter out.
