My wife and I love this washer. It cleans very well and it is so quiet. We were looking to replace a 10 yr old top loader with something that would save us some time and would be a lot quieter. After reading reviews we decided on this model. As far as saving us time, the washer is no faster than our old one. most of the cycles run about 50 min or so, the company states you'll save time based on capacity of the loads, thus requiring fewer loads to wash. We were still hopeful that the overall time to do a load would be quicker (wash and dry) because of the higher spin speeds. And I am pleased to report, that the drying times are much shorter (please read review for the dryer). Now, as far as the noise level we are VERY happy with this set. This seemed to be the biggest wild card in purchasing a front loader. Most reviews state that the unit is very quiet, but some report that it is very noisy. I will say that the BB delivery guys did a pretty good job of leveling this washer (they even do a spin test to check the balance). However, I did some additional leveling after a few days and having washed a few loads. What I did was watch the machine when it was in high spin mode to get an idea of which way it was moving. Then I used the included leveling wrench (can be applied very easily if the bend in the wrench handle is toward the floor, the handle will rest against the floor while the wrench part is at the correct height for the nut on the leveling legs). I ended up with about 3/4 of a turn. Now, the unit vibrates a bit, but does not shake. It is so quiet, we actually leave the laundry door open so we can hear if it is still running. Sorry to go into such detail, but I can only think of 3 things as to why people complain of a noisy machine: The machine is not properly balanced, the shipping bolts were not removed, or you just got a lemon. Anyway, to sum this up here are my closing remarks in a pros/cons list. Pros: It is very quiet; It cleans very well; it has helped in saving us time; the timer shows the time remaining; the height is great with the pedestals; the door wants to close against the machine (this is good because you can put a towel in the door near the hinge that will keep the door open a few inches and allow the machine to "breathe"). Cons: The volume for the end of cycle tones is not loud enough; I wish you wouldn't have to wipe the door seal dry at the end of your laundry.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Love this machine. It is the best I ever had. With 12 cycles it does anything you could want from a machine and more. I have found it so quite no matter what cycle it is in. If I want the music I can push the button for it or turn it off.. I have it on the 1st floor over a basement and you can't feel a thing when it is spinning. I have non of the problems some people have written about. It lets me set MY CYCLE. the cycle I use most so I don't have to take the few extra seconds to put it in. I have washed large bulky loads and they come out very dry making my dryer finish it off qickly. It does not give me wrinkled, twisted clothing as my old washer did. I have so many options to use. If you don't use the steam option then it takes no longer than my old machine to do a normal load. My water bill has gone down as has the lint in my dryer as it is not harsh on the clothes. I love the pre wash and extra rinse option. i have used the spin dry at the highest level and found I didn't need it.I spin dry at 1 level down and it is dryer than my other machine and did not give me a wrinkled mess. I Iike the filter at bottom of the machine as I can remove any lint that may occur. My clothes come out much cleaner than they were before with my old machine. I find I am doing much fewer loads each week as it washes large loads beautifuly. THis is the best machine I ever had and I am happy I waited to buy a machine as with the anti vibration system it has the option of using steam and all of it's other features have made me a very happy peron. I have by the way 2 long haired cats and 2 dogs and do a lot of laundry with all kinds of stains and this machine works. I am happy I didn't listen to the negatives some people had as I havn't had any problem with my dream machine.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

We've only had this washing machine for about 6 weeks, but I love it. It's quiet, easy to use and I love all the options we have on it....something we didn't have on our old top-loader. After researching, we were down to a Samsung vs. an LG. We went with the Samsung due to the "silver care" aka "Active Fresh" since we can sanitize with cold water and it's supposed to keep the machine from getting moldy/stinky. Our machine is in the basement and we had the old one up on cinder blocks (we've had water in the basement in the past). Although they gently pushed us to purchase a pedestal for this, we didn't want to spend the extra $$. When the delivery guys came and set it up, they said it was sturdier than using the pedestal....said they should recommend it to others! We haven't had an issue with it vibrating enough for it to be a concern. Other things I like about it: -Clothes are much dryer coming out -Clothes are much cleaner coming out (esp. notice this on our cloth diapers) -Much quieter than my in-law's front-loader -Sanitize option....I LOVE this for towels, cloth diapers, etc. -THE DELAY START feature...LOVE IT! Can put everything in and set the washer so it finishes about the time we get up so I can get a head start on laundry and the clothes aren't setting there all night. -Able to have sanitized water even with cold water My kids (ages 2, 5, and 6.5) LOVE helping with laundry...to load and unload the drum, to push the buttons....and because it's a front-loader they're able to reach in and do this now....a great help! Overall, we're very pleased with this purchase....only time will tell if it's worth the extra $$ compared to other front-loaders. Hoping it'll last a long time!Sorry, there was a problem.

I had a Kenmore front loader that was 10 years old and died a loud, sudden death. I thought 10 years was too soon, but everybody seemed to think that was a great run for a front loader. We went to Best Buy to look at new washers. We had heard about a steam washer from a friend who SWORE by it. We decided with 1 child, 2 large dogs, and 4 cats that it may be a good idea to invest in a heavy duty washer that would do wonders for clothes and pet beds. We were put off by the retail price, but Best Buy had a great sale on the machine the weekend we bought it. I gave value for the money only a 3 because at regular price it is way to expensive in my opinion. The machine was delivered exactly on the day we wanted and the delivery guys were even early! They installed our new washer and made sure it worked okay and then carted away our old washer. We read the book before starting because the controls are somewhat daunting. Once you run through them once, they make complete sense. We were surprised at how long the steam wash cycles take (heavy duty steam wash is almost 2 hours), but who were we to argue on what was too long. There are regular wash cycles without steam and in it is a short wash option, so you don't always have to use steam and take forever. We washed our two dog beds that were rather dirty after all the rain and they came out looking like new. I was absolutely amazed. We have tried other things that had set in stains and have had the majority of them come out. The washer itself is very quiet and has charming chimes to signal the user when it is finished. We have wood floors in the laundry area and have not had any trouble with excessive vibration or noise. The only minor complaint I have is that our old washer was smaller. We still have the old dryer as it has not deemed itself fit to die yet and a matching dryer to this washer is the same cost as the washer (yikes!). The washer is very heavy and takes up more room, but it is something we will live with. We can wash in large loads in the new washer, but the old dryer is too small to accommodate the larger loads. I would recommend this machine to anyone who is interested in a steam washer.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Awesome machine!Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This washing machine is everything it's cracked up to be! It is unbelievable how quiet this washer is. The wash options are extensive to say the least. It took me a little while to read through the owner's manual, but worth the time! And the control panel makes it so easy to set the washer for what you want it to do...very user friendly. My favorite feature is the ActivFresh cold-water sanitizing. I had seen some people write that their clothes smelled metallic when they used this feature...not the case at all! I've used it for bath towels and some older workout clothes that I thought I would never get the smell out of, and they all came out smelling like new! I am SO impressed! I don't think I am making the most of the capacity yet...I'm nervous about overfilling. I think that's just an old habit I'm going to have to break from my old washer. The only thing I would "disagree" with is the fact that things do not come out of the washer as "dry" as some other reviewers (on other websites)had indicated. Several people used the term "almost dry" right out of the washer. Maybe that just got my expectations too high. Everything is definitely well spun, but I wouldn't say almost dry...IMHO. Overall, this seems to be an amazing washing machine...I am actually having fun doing laundry and experimenting with all of the features! And Best Buy had this washer for a great price on sale!Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

We've had this washer and matching dryer now for about a month. The washer does a beautiful job on the clothes. I've washed queen-size bulky comforters and my dogs' oversized bed and it handles them with ease. I used to have to take these items to the laundromat for washing because my old Asko couldn't hold them. I haven't used the steam cycle yet, but it will be great to have for my husband's greasy shop clothes and for refreshing blankets here and there. Both the washer and dryer also have a sanitize cycle - something I might not use, but that would be great for someone who has a baby or small child. The washer does have a machine oil odor that builds up when the door is closed and the machine is idle. It doesn't affect the clothes, though. I leave the door open most of the time because of this. I'm careful to dry under the door gasket when I am done with laundry, because water does accumulate there and that could lead to mold over time. I also bought the matching pedestals and must say I wish I hadn't. These machines stand tall on their own, and with the pedestals they're too tall for a countertop installation above them for folding clothes, and I'm 5' 7". And, the pedestal drawers aren't tall enough to store a bottle of liquid laundry detergent in an upright position - go figure. Performance-wise, I give this machine 5+ stars, but if you can, wait until they go on sale and don't bother with the pedestals. We got the washer and dryer for $699 each.Sorry, there was a problem.

Great washing machine.
Great washing machine.Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This is a great all around washing machine. It has endless settings you can use for different types of laundry. The anti-vibration technology is excellent. I can barely hear the washer. Only gripe I have is that the water doesn't dry out all the way around the rubber gasket near door. I have to keep the door open so the water dries or else it starts to smell.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Cleans great, not as quiet as everyone says

We had the installation people come back to balance, geek squad, and finally an independent repairman all come out to try to get it to stop shaking so bad when starting a spin. the final conclusion was that's just how these are. True enough, once it balances itself for the spin, it is very quiet and very steady. For the 1st 10 seconds of each spin cycle, it sounds like a train is rattling through the laundry room. not exactly what you would expect for the money, and i have concerns about the long term effects of that much shaking & rattling. Definitely want to purchase the in home geek squad plan if you buy. that said, it is much much quieter than other front loaders most of the time and does clean very well.Sorry, there was a problem.
