          Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - Graphite Steel:

          Our old front-load washer finally gave up the ghost, and the search was on...had a lot of feedback that the new LG washers were excellent machines and a good value. It was a bit more $ than we originally planned on, but well worth it. A great machine. Quiet. Works great. It doesn't "travel" like our old machine and when it says 10 minutes left, it really means 10 minutes left.

                  This washer has great features and is quiet. It is easy to use and has many cycles to fit all washing needs. It looks nice and runs great. I love the FreshCare in case I'm not going to be there when the cycle is done. Clothes come out clean and smelling fresh. I would definitely recommend this washer.

                      My wife and I are very pleased with our purchase. The unit is easy to use and maintain. We really like how quiet the washer is even when in a high speed spin. The different washing options are a great bonus, especially for someone who has year-round allergies. The washer is a great size for a small family and can even handle a queen-sized down comforter and duvet cover at one. Great buy!

                              I received my machine in February. Unlike several other reviewers I find my machine loud. When the water is filling the machine it is very forceful and makes several abrupt sounds as it is filling. During the wash cycles it is fairly quiet until the spin cycle during which time it again becomes very loud and shakes and squeaks. My machine is level, it's been checked several times. I'm disappointed with the machine. This washer replaces my previous front loader (10 yrs old) and it was never this loud.

                                      For the most part, I must say I really love my new washer. It has replaced my previous top loading washer which I had for approximately 25 years. There are, however, a few things I don't like. One is the fact that there isn't a separate spin cycle. There is only a rinse and spin. Another feature which pertains to the pedestals, is that I cannot fit any of my detergent containers in them. I'm referring to normal size containers not the supersized ones. With the size of the washer and dryer, a consumer is almost forced to purchase the pedestals because the door is low and would require bending. That was one of the reasons I purchased the pedestals; however the other was going to be so I could store my laundry chemicals in them. I don't know what they are intended for, but I cannot find any practical use for them at this time, except to keep me from having to bend down to get to the laundry. I've only had my washer for a month, therefore, I cannot comment on long term performance or reliability. Also, I am unable to specify warranty issues.

                                          Product setup was easy, instructions clear and concise. Had a internal leak problem that was resolved by LG support within a couple days under warranty. Wash cycles are less than the previous non-LG installed product and spin cycles take more moisture out of the clothes so that the drying time is less.
