Answer: 
Probably.
Please bear in mind that front-load washers generally can tolerate a somewhat compressed load. As long as the item[s] can move freely once wet, they can be washed. Washing is accomplished by 'rolling' the load into and out of the water at the bottom of the drum.

I have no doubt it would also handle a standard sleeping bag. Zipper might be noisy, though.

I have a Cal King down comforter that I have washed in it just fine. No drama there and it seemed nice and gentle to the down so I didn't lose many feathers. I have a smaller dryer so that is more tricky but a few tennis balls, and taking it out part way through to rotate it so it doesn't twist up so much seems to help.

February 12, 2013
Answer: 
That's an interesting idea. But I'm not sure how they would do that since the drum rotates around its horizontal axle. It's full of tiny holes, which wouldn't let much of a backlight go through. And it's a little bit humid in there to put electricity (like a pool light?). They could put one in the door, but you'd block it every time you reach in to get clothes. Thus, no, not in this model.

Nope. Hinge is on the left and not reversible. Its a big bummer for us! Dryer is reversible but most companies don't have reversible Washer doors anymore. I was told electrolux does but don't know for sure. My Repair guy said stick with LG so we just did that despite the door.

The hinge is on the left, and it is not reversible by the homeowner. That would probably be a factory installation issue if it's possible at all.

Answer: 
the washer opens from the right to left, and the dryer opens from left to right. So when they are placed next to each other with washer on your left and dryer on your right you can have both doors open and transfer clothes from the washer to the dryer easily. I dont think the doors can be reversed.

All HE front load washers MUST use HE detergent. Don't even try to use conventional detergent, it will foam and ruin the water pump. Most HE detergents on the market are the same cost as non-HE detergents. Since buying my LG washer, I have switched to Tide HE, exclusively. That is all I use for darks and whites. I find, while costing more than cheap detergents, Tide cleans the best, period. My laundry is always clean and fresh smelling. Tide HE leaves no residue in the drum and no suds in the sink. If you dare, use a non-HE or a cheap HE-like detergent, and look at the amount of suds left in the sink after a load. You will switch to a good brand of HE detergent soon after seeing the mess.
Hope this helps. Read Less

Because front loaders use gravity and drop clothes into a puddle of water they only use 12-14 galons of water per load, as apposed to 30-50 gallons like an agitating top load. HE soap works wonderfully and is the same price and avalability as regular soap, HE is just formulated to wash out w/smaller amounts of water unlike regular soap.

Because front loaders use gravity and drop clothes into a puddle of water they only use 12-14 galons of water per load, as apposed to 30-50 gallons like an agitating top load. HE soap works wonderfully and is the same price and avalability as regular soap, HE is just formulated to wash out w/smaller amounts of water unlike regular soap. Regular soap will ruin and create odor in an HE machine. Even some top load agitator units are HE now and everthing seems to be headed in the HE direction. The only way to get a machine that does not require HE soap is to buy a very basic entry level agitating non HE top loader which are getting increasingly hard to find. I recomend LG front load units as I have been more than satisfied w/mine! Read Less

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 280 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best washer I have ever had!! My mother has always had a front loader and advised me to get one but I was nervous about one since I had only ever used a top loader and was satisfied with the results I received. I also read some reviews about others that experienced musty smells and clothes that were not clean. I have to say, I was nervous for nothing! This is a great washer. The cycles are quick and my clothes are always clean! The steam and sanitary functions are great. I wasn't sure I would use them but I have and they are awesome for extra cleaning power. The washer also handles large loads! We are a family of seven and have a lot of laundry! I am very happy with my purchase! May 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Technology makes a difference This machine uses much less water and spins water from clothes much better than our old 80s era top loader ever did. This means the dryer runs also runs less. The water inlet valves open and close very fast a dozen or more times per cycle. This caused a problem with water hammer in our plumbing, as others have reported. Fortunately suppressors are available for not much money at hardware stores. We installed these at the washer inlet which greatly reduced the problem, but I may add two more at the hose inlets to make sure any pipe movement is minimized. I think LG should add this function internally to the washer for next generation models. November 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EFFICIENT! Seems much larger than a 4.0 cu ft. This new machine (purchased Dec 2013) still amazes me each time I use it. I can select a cycle, water temp, spin rate, soil level, etc for every single load thus getting cleaner, less beat up laundry out of the machine at the end. No matter how large the load, the washer cleans the clothes well and spins them so well they barely feel wet. Other users noted a clunking in their home water line when the machine would call for water on and off. I have no such problem - at all. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this machine. It has become my new best friend and it even sings to me after every load. How sweet is that?! Get one and amaze yourself! March 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The hubs loves it! This washer has taken our drab, tired, slightly dingy clothes and given them new life! Our clothes are now tossed, turned, spun, and agitated to a whole new level using the water and spin capabilities of this washer. The direct drive motor on the basket exudes confidence while running a load of laundry and the 10-year warranty for the motor is very reassuring. LG also scored big points for installing a rechargeable battery in the machine so after the first spin, the battery provides the electricity for the rest of the cycle. Very thoughtful. In fact, all of the features on this washer are well thought out. So glad we made this purchase! April 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I recommend this LG washer Turbowash is fast, cleans well. All cycle times are shorter and clean better than those of 2006 front load LG. New LG front loader is much quieter. Magnet keeps door in place without sealing when machine is not in use, allowing air circulation in washer and door out of walkway--a plus. Decided not to place washer on pedestal this time--to use top for folding--a good move. Problem: Dark control buttons are difficult to read (lack of contrast) unless light shines directly on them. 2006 LG control panel's dark letters on white background were easy to read. Prefer Tide granular over liquid as granular rinses out better, I feel. December 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart Design. We have had this washer for about 3 months now and are quite happy with it's performance. Clothes seem to be cleaner with this washer than with my old one. It handles large items like comforters and blankets with ease. The washer is fairly quiet and the balance when spinning has been good. We purchased the pedestal base with the washer and had it delivered and installed. The installation was quick and we were up and running. The door latch design is a great feature with a magnetic stop which holds the door slightly ajar to prevent mold and musty smells from the drum. All-in-all, we are quite happy with this washer and would highly recommend it to others. February 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Washer I did a lot of research, including reading many, many reviews by owners, and talking to owners of other HE front loaders. I love this machine. It has a good number of pre-set cycles and they can be easily modified for specific needs. Machine washes well with both small and large loads. I have the pedestals and like machine height with them but they are too short for standard detergent bottles. I have had front loaders for years and this is by far the best. Clothes are not snarled into a knot even with high spin. Machine is quiet even at high speed spins. Take the time to be certain pedestals then peds + washer are thoroughly leveled. Well worth the effort. February 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exclellent washer I'm new to having one of the recent generation of washers, with all of the electronic bells and whistles. I love it - especially the load sensing, and water thriftiness. The only downsides that I can mention are the mediocre user manual - a number of functions are less than clearly explained and the lack of ability to leave garments to soak the way that one can in a top loader. That said, it does a splendid job of cleaning clothes. BTW, it doesn't recommend using Oxyclean, in case that's a beloved product. The website has informative sections on using the machine...
