    GREAT Machine! Research Paid Off!!!

    This is the first washing machine I have bought since a very unpleasant experience with a Bosch set about 8 years ago. They required service right from the beginning, and were slow and awful. So much that when we redid the laundry/mud room we had to replace the machines even thought they were working fine. WHAT AN UPGRADE!! This is a fabulous machine, easy to use, and intuitive. The Speed Wash is just that -- you press Start, and go do something else, and it seems like just a few minutes later, it chimes. The machine does a great job on everything we throw at it, and we throw a lot at it. Our housekeeper had no problem adapting to it instantly, and the quality of the laundry has improved 100%. I would not have believed it possible. We have Miele machines at our apartment, and the LG's put them to shame. I have to see if LG makes the smaller size units, because if they do, I'm gonna splurge. You absolutely, positively, cannot go wrong with this machine. We have been using ours for five months now, and my wife and I almost fight over who gets to run the machine. She has gotten deeper into it, but I am intrigued by the idea you can download cycles from the internet. When I get around to it, I'm going to see what the WiFi capabilities really are. I suspect I'll be blown away. My sole concern is the door hinge: It is the only part of this machine that does not look and feel like a Rolls Royce. I hope it's just meant to be flexible to avoid breaking, but it feels a tad flimsy. No issues with it, but it worries me a bit. If this thing is durable, it's the first time in my life I have gotten a techie buzz from a household appliance. YESYESYES. I researched machines for a month before buying these. I also had to buy some commercial units for an apartment house for my kids, and so far so good. The Best Buy installers did a great job on those machines. For once, my research paid off. Don't hesitate. This is a GREAT MACHINE and GREAT VALUE.

    Much Better Than I Expected

    Our 13 year old Maytag washer died and we needed to purchase a new washer. A lot has changed in the 13 years we had the Maytag. I did a fairly comprehensive search on the web to learn about different washers and the reviews given to them. Plus, we really didn’t want to spend over $1000 for a washer. Initially, I thought we would purchase a Maytag, but after seeing it and reading the reviews, we shelved that idea. I started looking at Samsung, LG, Kenmore and Electrolux. We ended up settling for the LG. I am so happy with the LG. It was installed without any problems, especially the balance problems I’d read about in other reviews. The LG is so quiet and our clothes, towels, sheets, etc. are so much cleaner. I’ve not had any issues with the cycle times-they’re a lot shorter than the Maytag. Our washer is in a separate laundry room so we keep the door open to minimize any mold and smell issues, of which we’ve had none. I did read all of the Owner’s Manual and follow those instructions. I’m thrilled with the LG and would definitely purchase again.

    Love this front loading dryer

    Purchased the dryer at the same time as the washer and we love the set. Such an efficient dryer. It senses how much time is needed to dry each load. It starts out with an estimate of the time needed and then adjusts the time as the clothes are being dried, so our clothes aren't being baked to death. So much easier on the fabrics. The things that usually come out damp are coming out dry in the waist bands and where there are double layers of fabric. The various settings are easy to understand and to set. I'm so glad that we purchased the combo. I read lots of reviews before selecting the brand and the set to purchase and the biggest complaint that I read about this dryer seemed to be the tune that it played when the cycle completed. I just wish I could turn up the volume so I could hear it upstairs since the laundry is in the basement of our house. Haven't figured out how to do that yet. I would definitely recommend purchasing this set to anyone asking. Best Buy did a wonderful job with delivery and installation. Showed up as scheduled and there were no glitches or issues.

    Extended Warranty - Replacement

    I rarely if ever purchase extended warranties This one worked out great. Purchased at LG front loader set more than 6 years ago. Used the warranty once a while back on the washer. Then re-up the extended warranty. This time when the service tech. came to work on a dryer that seemed to be overheating then failing to start another load. Dryer parts needed no longer avail. LG via the extended warranty replaced with this upgraded version of what we closest had. 7 years old and bam a new dryer. This is the steam dryer now and truly have noticed a bit of a difference with less ironing needed if you catch it right after the cycle end. Working great and outside of two service issues in over 7 years no other issues. At least a load a day min. and the weekends they get a work out. Two thumbs up here from the wife and I.

    Our 1st Stackable Purchase

    We are 1st time buyers of LG. I was worried but Consumers Reports showed LG's history to have lowest in breakdowns, the price was right and Both washer and dryer set had a good rating. So far so good. Time needed to dry cloths takes a little longer than we would like but it does the job. We have "not" tried out the steam option yet. I didn't see a lot of positive reviews for it so I haven't been in a hurry to try it. Hopefully these units will last the 13 years our old ones did. We did purchase the extended contracts which is worth the money when it currently costs 100.00 plus just to someone come out to troubleshoot. The 100.00 protection/Ea additional unit that gives you 5 years of coverage on top of the one year from MFG'r is more than worth it. 6yrs. coverage/100.00. (if) you plan to stack these don't buy the drawers You'll need a ladder to get to the dryer and if you don't have the ceiling height they may not fit.

    Nice Machine and on sale!

    My wife and I ran into an emergency and needed a new machine quickly. We always like to look around on pricing and had to check out Best Buy. Having a product in stock to take home was a HUGE plus! No waiting - my truck - home and installed. The machine works awesome and takes less time and energy than my last machine. We chose this model for the steam option or we might have spent less. We were going to buy this machine no matter what, but found an open box one and bought that one instead. This saved us an additional 100 over the sale price! The issue was with the top panel of the machine not locking down and bouncing back a bit. I simply bent a couple of metal tabs under the machine and the problem was solved. Thank you to those who don't have know how! Great service, great price, in stock to take home - I love this place ad bought all my appliances there as well when I redid my kitchen and they price matched the competition on items they weren't lower on. You can't beat them!

    I recently purchased this as a replacement for another LG dryer. I love the graphite steel color! As for it's drying performance, it's okay. My only complaint is that just like my previous LG dryer, sometimes the clothes do not get completely dry on some settings. I think this is inherent with these dryers because it is mentioned in the instructions that you may have to use the "more dry" setting or run the load a little longer. I suspect it is because it's hard for the sensor to accurately detect the moisture content of mixed weights of clothing in typical loads. I am not sure how often I will use the steam feature, so I preferred getting this model where you have to fill the drawer with water for steam versus getting the next model up where the water automatically comes from the outlet in the wall (through a Y-connector with your washer hose).

    This dryer is so much faster at drying than my old dryer that I am sure to be saving $$ on electric use. It's quiet, has easy controls, with an easy to clean lint filter. I have the washer/dryer combo stacked which makes the controls pretty high up. I am 5'6" and I wouldn't want to be much shorter or I wouldn't be able to reach the controls on top. The units fit into a small closet so stacking was my only option, but you don't have to stack them. There is a tray you can put into the dryer to dry items flat or shoes so they are not bouncing around. Haven't tried it yet, but it is a nice feature to have. When the dryer (and washer) are finished, a cute little song chimes. Some people may not like this song, however, compared to the buzzer that I used to have that scared guests and hurt your ears if you were too close when it went off, it's a welcome change.
