Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lesser Very happy with purchase
I have had my new LG WM4070H for almost two weeks now. This was a replacement for another LG front-loader washing machine I owned for around 9 years. I love the bigger tub on this model. I can wash a set of queen sized sheets and a set of full sized sheets at the same time, without sacrificing any of the cleaning power of the washer. I am thrilled with the Turbo Wash feature that allows loads to wash in less time, but still getting my clothes clean. I am so happy to have a washer with a built-in heater, so when I set the temperature to hot, I know the water will actually get hot. I am very pleased that LG has not gone down in quality at all since my original front-loader purchase. Other than the fact that it was a little pricey, I don't have anything negative to say about this washer.

Generally I am happy with my purchase. The numerous cycles and options are a little daunting compared to what I was used to with my old Neptune front load washer. I love how quiet this washer is, although it does make some loud noise at the beginning of the cycle when it starts and stops the water as it senses how much water each load requires. One little frustration, the door is too low to allow opening it with my laundry basket in front of the washer.
A couple of things I wish I knew before my purchase would have influenced my color selection. I chose the graphite steel because it matches my decor and looks great, BUT I wish I had stayed with the traditional white. First, the lettering for the cycle and option selections are hard to read because the letters are fine black print on a dark gray background. This is something I didn't notice in the well lit store, but in my own laundry room the lettering is difficult to read. I suppose it would help some if I had purchased the pedestal so the washer is more at eye-level, but then I would have a hard time reaching items in the cabinets above. The other thing I noticed with the graphite color is that it shows every scratch. I typically place the laundry detergent and fabric softener bottles on the washer as I do laundry. Although these bottles are plastic, the bottom of the bottles often have some sharp edges from manufacture and have scratched the top of the washer. I didn't notice this issue when I had a white washer. So if you choose the graphite steel, just consider these observations!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cowdoctor Great machine for price
I am a large animal veterinarian. This machine removes manure and blood easily. It uses very little water as well. Has multiple settings preset plus you can change them to customize your wash. The color is great as well. Matches all of the satin nickel fixtures in house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Warren316 Bigger is better!!
Uses 1/10th the water and 1/5th the electricity of my old top loader while washing big loads.
Reasonably quiet operation, except for soap injection and spin whine from smaller loads. The whine is from the holes in the drum moving so fast!
Love the efficiency of the direct drive system!
Spins so fast, the clothes are almost dry BEFORE you put them in the matching dryer.
Like everybody else; only hang up is the non-reversible door.
For this quality and efficiency, I'll put up with it!

The direct drive motor makes all the difference. It is quiet and well balanced even with a heavy load. Glad I made the switch from a Duet.

This washer replaces my 10 + yr. old Kenmore. Far nicer then my old washer, runs great, clothes come out clean, love the tones and the sweet tune that lets you know the load is done. Also love the 15 minute wash feature, how great when you are in a hurry!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WalterNJ Could be great but horrible noise and shaking ruins it
I really, really want this washer that I purchased a few months ago to work out for me. However, I've had no such luck. I love the features but the noise when the system goes into spin cycle is unbearable. It sounds a jackhammer. It's not necessarily a vibration but more of a sharp grinding noise.
