    Have only had this for a month, but it is such an upgrade from our old Whirlpool Duet that I was constantly repairing. This LG handles big loads without complant, runs quiet and looks good. I had to do the install because my dryer needed a sidevent kit and BestBuy will install, but won't make changes like installing new vent kit. They were upfront about it, so no knock on them. That said, get install if you can. This thing is a beast! It is heavy enough that you can miss a foot being a half inch off the ground because it feels solid with only 3 feet in contact with floor. Luckly the wife caught it before we finished. Once leveled, this runs quiet and spins without much vibration. Old one use to shake the house, triggering earthquake warnings up to 3 miles away. This one you may not know a load is running until you walk into the laundry. The interior light is also a nice feature. I purchased this with the matching 9cf gas dryer. They look great and we are cranking out some serious laundry...

    LG 5.2 FRONT LOAD WASHER

    I bought an LG product because I was one of the lucky ones to have an exploding Samsung washer and I did not want to replace for obvious reasons. I know LG makes great products. I have and LG refrigerator that I love and I don't have any problems. I needed a large washer because I have king size comforters. I read reviews about this one and everyone said, even stores, said it would accommodate king size. I had it delivered and it was the first thing I put in the washer. It was so tight I was hesitant to even wash it because there was no room for it to tumble. I queezed it in and washed it anyway when it was done it was wet. The dog hair had come off. Do I recommend this washer for king size? No, I don't. Other than the comforter issue, I noticed items come out too wet sometimes and I have to run it thru a spin cycle and I'm not thrilled with that. I don't know if it the settings or what but I will be more attentive, maybe this is not working properly. I will call them to see what the problem is. Even if LG has an issue or two it's a lot better than having a Samsung washer blow up in your laundry room. I gave 3 stars because it doesn't accommodate king size bedding like it says and needing the extra spin cycle.

    Great so far and I'm still learning

    This washer has many, many options and it takes a while to figure them all out. I love the antibacterial option, one of the steam choices, for my athletic clothes and pet bedding. For normal loads, the Turbo wash option is great - it cuts the wash time in half! The washer has a large capacity, making it possible to wash all of my king size bedding at once - sheets, mattress pad, quilt. After completing the wash cycle, the door props open slightly with a built in magnet, allowing the drum to dry out, thus preventing that nasty smell HE from developing. Even though I'm still learning about all of the cycles, I am very pleased with the cleaning so far.

    Gorgeous washer and when 1st used seemed really nice. I purchased a NEW out of box washer. the 1st few weeks seemed to run good. Then I would hear a loud knock and now when it spins it vibrate, squeaks and bangs hard up against my dryer. The back end of the washer has gradually moved way from the dryer but the front end corner continues to bang away against the dryer. I now notice there is a small crack near the control panel that I do not recall was even there. I checked it thoroughly when I bought it. So it either happened when they reinstalled went they came out to reinstall the appliances to be side by side or with all the banging up against the dryer. Now just waiting to see how Best Buy handles this. It is clearly defective.

    This is the best washing machine I've ever owned!! I can actually say it has improved my laundry experience and made the job easier! My review is based on several months using the machine. It takes huge loads of laundry, cutting way back the number of loads I do per week. I've had front loading machines before and this machine has some obvious improvements. It is super quick and it uses very little water, yet everything comes out clean. Water sprays onto the clothes from different locations in the drum throughout the washing and rinsing cycles, while the clothes spin in different directions. So smart! It works the way a human being would manually wash and rinse their clothes. I love the drum light ... only wish it would come on every time you open the door. I love this machine!!!! Would buy it again in a heartbeat!

    Great Product, not very good service from Best Buy

    I rated the actual product a 5 star product, but the service was little to be desired. Upfront service anyways. Purchased the washer dryer set with pedestals, one of which is the washing machine pedestal. A screw on the dryer stripped when changing the door swing. They called in a new one and the store dropped the ball on following up to get my new one. I went to another store and they explained the other store didn't follow up and ordered me a new dryer replacement and washer pedestal as the display was not working properly on that either. The dryer and pedestal showed up 4 days later, the dryer was perfect, the pedestal washer was damaged. 2 days later, still no call to follow up reordering my replacement??? Why do I have to track down my purchase replacements???? Why? They said on the last delivery, Best Buy would be calling me!

    Have used this washer almost every day for over a month. Great job on turbo wash--short cycle. Very quiet operation. Low water and energy usage (check your electric and water utilities for rebates). UX: User experience, or what could be improved: 1) control panel should be back lite, reflective surface makes it hard to read without direct illumination; 2) drum light should come on when door is open, magnetic catch or door close could turn light off; 3) having to hand-dry rubber door gasket after every use to prevent mildew shouldn't be a requirement--better design needed or add active self-drying.

    It's a great machine, we need to get the sidekick washer-pedestal. We would have gotten it when we purchased the machine but Best Buy would not give us the "little" extra we needed in our credit line, but we made over 700.00 in payments before we bought the machine and then 2 weeks later they decided to reise our limit. The machine is great, wanted a top loader but hubby pushed the fact that I'm not getting any younger and I have back problems so yes, it was a good idea. Since we still have our old dryer we need to make sure we use very high on the spin cycle as otherwise it does not dry well. Also does not spin-out large loads very well Am I happy with it, Yes, and would highly recommend it for anyone that needs a machine. Don't read the reviews they are scary.
