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

          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.

                  I bought this washer in January of this year and am so surprised that I actually enjoy doing laundry. It has a very big tub, doesn't use a lot of water, and is very quiet. I also can't believe how fast it works. So far extremely pleased.

                      This is probably the best and most efficient washing machine I have ever owned. It uses less water - has a huge array of customizable settings and options. For example you could do a 20 mins quick wash for smaller loads. It also is large enough to do blankets and comforters. It does a great job removing blemishes and doesn't make much sound during a wash cycle. I researched several brands (Samsung, Whirpool & GE# and went with LG due to all the features, reviews and recommendations. I purchased the dryer to go with this unit - both look great and work amazingly well. They are simple to use - simple as playing a DVD #literally) there is a play and stop button.

                          We cannot be more pleased with our LG washer. The mundane task of laundry has turned into such a joy. Now I am confident that stains are removed and the quality of our clothing stays intact! With our old unit there was no such thing as throwing the kids' school backpacks in the wash. Now I can easily clean their school backpacks and lunch boxes without hassle. Which saves us money from constantly buying new ones! To my surprise I used the "hand wash" feature for two sweaters I normally would take to the dry cleaners. All I can say now is that our usual dry cleaner will not see me as often! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who has kids or basically anyone who enjoys clean clothes!

                              Worst washer I have ever owned. Overall poor performance. Spin cycle leaves clothes so wrinkled the dryer does not remove them. Blankets and sweaters are now covered with fuzz balls. When filling with water, the pressure cuts on and off so hard it vibrates the plumbing throughout my entire house. Whirlpool did not last long, but performance was far superior. Interesting there are only good reviews on this website.

                                  I bought this washer after looking at a few other LG front load machines. I wanted a washer with Turbo Wash, and this machine has it. It minimizes the wash time, while cleaning the clothes very well. I also like the steam cycle and hope that this cycle will minimize odors in towels.
