Large capacity and very quiet
from Colorado, United States
Comments about LG 5.2 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:
Large capacity and very quiet, used to prefer basement laundry rooms because of the noise. New house has 1st floor laundry room so I researched the quietest largest capacity I could find and reviews said this was much quieter than than other brand. Since this purchase the other brand now has problems with exploding machines. Very happy I went with quality instead of slightly larger and cheaper. The one thing I would change is that some of the settings buttons are dark words on a dark background so they are hard to read. I will make my own labels with a label maker to put over them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this washer

I bought this one last month. It's huge washer. There are a few options to washing clothes. Clothes came out nice and clean. I used to wash clothes 2-3 times a week, but with this washer, I need to wash clothes just once a week. Perfect!
Biggest Washer I have seen
from Wausau, WI, United States
LG continues to shine with its dryer and in this case, the Washer! This thing is BIG... almost too big, and works well. Only reason for 4 of 5 stars, is this (and the dryer) are needlessly too complicated, as there are about 20 settings for drying and washing. That is probably a bit overkill in my opinion.

I bought washer and dryer in december 2014...so by now they have gotten a full work out. I am totally happy with my investment.these are pricey, more expensive than any other machines at the time, but I went with it because of the super large capacity and the good customer reviews. I did my research well, and checked many stores and professional product reviews. we are only a household of two, but we entertain a lot and often host houseguests and i like to wash comforters,, blankets, rugs pillows etc in addition to regular clothes and finer items like washable cashmere, silks, and delicate items. this washer can handle it all and more than i can throw at it. i am happy with the speed,as that was one of my concerns switching over from a top loader to a front loader.--i was used to do a load in twenty minutes...but this washer needs most often an hour (depending on the size of the load) but it also does have a turbo feature that reduces the timing considerable for a quick few items... ; it has been no problem. i feel the support is excellent as well for these LG machines as i often get notices via email about the features of the washer and dryer that I sometimes forget about as i get set to mostly use just 1-3 programs...and forget about the sanitizing features, the steam washing, the dry cleaning in the dryer...I am very happy with these products. I think the other important thing to note is that this kind of washer performs best with an HD wash detergent...

I bought my washer almost a month ago, and absolutely love it. It is quite, huge and gets my clothes so clean. I had a pair of slacks with a previous stain, and one time through my new washer, the stain came out!! It did not with the old washer and stain remover. It also can clean jumbo loads. I love all the bells and whistles.
Great machine, quite and does a nice job
from Moscow, Ohio, United States
Had another washer in which was bought new (a competitor's brand), and the main drum bearing started going out just after 3 years, (than goodness for extended service plans) refunded full price. Ordered the LG WM8000HWA after a long look around. Delivered and I installed it no problem. Read manual and then did a load of clothes. Have had no issues with this unit, does a fine job, nice and quite too. Clothes have come out clean and fresh and almost dry. Less time in dryer.
Super smart washer
Super smart washer and most of all easy to use for what ever the need is for washing.
Large and works great for a family of 5
from Denver, CO, United States
We wanted a new washer so that we could get away with doing less loads of laundry and it does just that. Cleans the close and helps us make those baseball uni's look new again.

I upgraded to these machines and they have been a disappointment other than that they are quiet. First - the lights go out too quickly so you can't see inside to remove clothes. Second - The clothes especially workout clothes soaked with sweat time and again do not come out clean smelling. Even clothes that are lightly soiled often don't smell fresh. I keep looking for the perfect cycle to wash items that will give the results I want. Towels have been a big challenge to wash and stay clean smelling even after a couple of uses. If there was an odor to begin with it seems to come back right away. Third, the panel lights are really hard to read. The design really needs work as the lighting has to be just right or you have to keep moving around to see settings. I also think you should be entitled to use or change settings if you want to for desired temperature. Overall, while my old machines were VERY OLD the cleaned the clothes much better!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
