Our washing machine died and left us with a trip either to a Laundromat, or to replace the machine. We choose the latter. Our size requirement and the need to replace the machine immediately narrowed the field greatly. We decided on the LGWM8000HVA 5.2 cu. ft. partly because we had purchased LG appliances before, but mostly because it met all our requirements and then some. We are very happy with all our LG appliances and would recommend them to anyone in need of new appliances.
Bought the big capacity washer and matching dryer. Couldn't wait to try them out. What an amazing pair. It's just a thrill to watch the washer weigh the clothes, then decide how much water to use, which is really a small amount... The dryer is also amazing. Best washer and dryer we ever had. Got the matching bases for each also. Nice looking, heavy duty machines. Not only saving on water but also on the laundry detergent. Also don't have to do laundry as much due to the big drums. I would suggest these to anyone.
This is a great product with n number of features, specially the Turbo wash, Stream technology, load balancer, front water sprinkler and so on .. The rinse cycle is absolutely clean and dry, the cloths are almost dry once wash is done. Energy efficient, with capacity to handle bulk loads in one go, I don't see a energy bills going up. I am very happy with my Washer. Thanks to LG for making such innovations.
Purchased this washer about 6 months ago. We have a large family and so far it is working great. Owned several top loading washers in the passed and they haven't lasted more than a few years. This washer does clean the clothes better and it has great energy and water saving features.
Started having issues as soon as the warranty ended. This is too expensive of a product to have issues after a year and a half. The button to turn it on is off center, and will not push in easily. It takes about 5 minutes to push a button now, and support did not have a fix for this. I can still get it to work, by pushing it around for a while on the side that isn't fitting in easily. It is frustrating to put a bunch of clothes in the laundry, and not know whether I can get it to start or not.
I own a vacation rental that I run myself (i.e...I wash all the linens 3 bathrooms (14 towels), 4 bedrooms with 7 beds (7 sheets SETS). This means that I have more than twice as much laundry to to do as a "normal" person/family. During the summer it is not unusual for me to do at least 6 ginormous loads of laundry per week. This machine has cut down my laundry time by at least half. What use to take me an entire day just washing the clothes (not even drying the clothes)...I'm now down to 3 large loads (washed and dried before noon). This machine IS the tool of my trade and is worth every expensive penny!! The little song at the end of the load is cute too...makes you look forward to the cycle ending. I cannot say one thing bad about this machine. Well done LG...well done.
Love this BIG MOMMA washer & matching dryer!!! I work shift work so our laundry piles up for 3 days (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 grade school) at a time and I can load this BIG MOMMA washer and dryer and have our laundry done in 2 to 3 loads tops. I wanted the biggest and the best that was available and I got it. So far so good. It is a little expensive but well worth it as I am not spending my first day off work doing laundry for 12 hours straight. I just got this set in April 2014 so we haven't had it very long but my favorite feature is the set it and forget it; I can set a load to wash 5 or 6 hours after I go to sleep and when I wake up pop them in the dryer and the clothes don't spend all day in the wash just sitting there getting stinky, absolutely love it!!
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 live in the City of Atlanta. Watershed Management is going through an audit of high water bills and I thought my account had been audited when I received my bill. Then I realized the audit hadn't started. This washer will pay for itself in less than two years just in water savings. The spin cycle is amazing - the clothes are just damp and I am saving money on the dryer electricity. LOVE this machine!
I just traded another higher end washer and dryer on this new LG pair. The washer capacity is excellent. Wash times in the steam mode are about 45 minutes longer than the ones I traded in. My old washer would wash in the HD cycle and steam mode in about one hour and fifteen minutes. The LG is a little over two hours. Everything washed in my old washer came out extremely clean. My verdict is still out on the LG. Is seems to do a good job but I have a little concern on the whites but as I said I will monitor it for a while yet. I have no concerns on the dryer. It is excellent. I trade about every two years. We have the 8000 model which is top of the line for LG. Overall it depends on how few problems I have over the two to three years I will keep it. So far it works well.
