Purchased these LG and started washing old clothes from storage. I used the steam and allergen cycles. Clothes came out clean free of mold and mildew stains. I also washed a full size comforter that was full of mold and mildew in my old washer and it did not come clean. I rewashed in my new LG with steam and sanitary cycle and it was clean free of all stains. I also used the sanitary cycle in dryer for super clean results saving me from having to throw away an expensive comforter. I love these two features knowing that I'm not just washing but also killing germs and bacteria for a super clean wash.
i love my new LG5.2 washed my blanket I"m amazed how clean it came out and smelling very fresh.It"s super quiet so far so good i was going to give it the 5 stars but i just got it two days ago am very happy with my purchase. Don"t pay attention to bad reviews.
Similar to my dryer review, this washer is first class in every way possible. Loads of options, ridiculously quiet, and has our clothes cleaner and softer than ever before...in 10-20% less time than what we replaced. But, this was somewhat overshadowed by an awful experience on the install. Read my lips...do it yourself! You will be glad you did!! The front corner is badly scratched from top to bottom, because they didn't take 15 seconds to remove the door and just muscled it through. Then, similar to the dryer, they reused all my old hardware/lines and failed to turn on the water. When I ran the test, I noticed that there was no water filling and quickly realized that the water was still turned off. This cemented the fact that no wobble or validation testing was done by the install crew. It was level, was happy with that. Did not install the drain line and did not even plug the machine it! The second crew saved the day, four days later, but the frustration/damage was already done. Save the $19.99 and do this yourself, you will end up doing so anyway. But, to end on a positive, this washer is the real deal. We have run approx. 10 loads in three days and its continues to amaze with its performance, speed and quiet. A+ washer, D+ install.
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.
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, too, purchased this washing machine on Nov. 29, 2013. Now, it won't power on. I did the trouble shooting with no success. The product should not have any problems with it so soon and for being so expensive. I am disappointed. The soonest a service person could come out, happens to be the last day of the 30 return policy. SAD!
Good thing we don't get our clothes too soiled. Because I can't image how they would get clean. We have a small long haired black cat (which we've had for 10 years). Instead of her fur being washed and rinsed down the drain it forms into small black balls and is then transferred to all the other clothes in that wash load. It's not like the clothes are covered in cat hair! At the end of the dry cycle you need to pick all the little balls off the clothes before putting them away. Never had this trouble with any of my other washing machines .
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.
Washes clothes well. My clothes smell so fresh.. Even cleans baseball pants with red mud on them! Washes huge loads of laundary. Happy!
