This washer is EXCELLENT! It is quiet, leaves no residue on the clothing, holds a HUGE load and has many settings, including sterilizing cycles that use extra hot water. Our previous front-loading washer was a different brand and had multiple problems, including mold that grew around the door gasket and residue left on the clothing, which needed to be rinsed out prior to drying the clothes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meredith Great Large Sized Washer
I've had this washer only a few weeks, but so far it has been great. The true test will be how many years of usage we get out of it before it requires repair. I love the large size. We are a family of four. Instead of doing laundry once a day, I am now doing a load every other day due to this washer's large size. I love the light inside so you can see what you have put in the wash during the wash cycle. The music indicating the cycle has finished is nice as well. It can accommodate large items such as a king sized duvet. I cannot say enough positive things about this washer at this time. However, as stated before, the true test is durability over time. A great washer for a growing family.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Finished Do not buy this product
I bought this machine about 18 months ago and it is still trying to balance a load of towels. It runs and runs and runs until it either over heats or throws a code. Only buy this machine if you never wash jeans or towels.

Love the volume of clothes I can wash at one time with this machine. Clothes have been very clean and the machine runs very quietly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ATX Love this Washer
I've had this washer for two years now, and I love it. It washes a LOT of clothes, so many more than the Miele stacking units I used to have. It can do a king size quilt and sheet set all at once. It's also fast, about 45 minutes for a Normal load. It also has the Sanitize load option, which is great to have although that setting takes a lot longer since the machine stays locked until contents cool down to a safe temperature. I have it stacked with the matching dryer, and it does shake quite a bit when it goes into the spin cycle. That was helped when I had Home Depot come out and re-level it (for free since I bought the protection plan through HD), but it didn't last long. Now I just try to keep my loads a little less full and the spin speed on medium or slower to minimize the shaking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katy Does everything it should, and does it quietly
This washer was a replacement for a 10 year old Whirlpool which was also an He front loading machine. This washer uses much less water and is almost as quiet. It washes large or small loads, using no more water than necessary, and dries the load very thoroughly resulting in quicker drying times. It's slightly taller (4"), wider (2") and shallower (4") than the old washer, so I was a bit concerned the laundry room door might need to be removed. But the washer was successfully installed through the 29.5" opening of the 32" doorway without removing the door. I've had the machine a month, and so far it's great. The cute little songs at the end give it a casino feel that's not necessary but much more pleasant than a blaring buzzer as I've experienced with some washers. One real plus compared to the older front loader, is that the LG has a door that leaves an air gap when it is closed, so there is less moisture to create odor or mildew problems which are more typical with front loading machines.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by June Dumps bleach on laundry
I've had this machine for nearly a year. It gets our clothes clean. But the issues I have outweigh any benefits. The smallest issue is that the backlit buttons are nearly impossible to read. Sometimes I have to get within three inches of the button to read the thing (I'm not very old). The big issue I have is the washer just dumps bleach. Every single blanket, sheet, towel that I own has big bleach spots. Not just a couple of tiny spots. Big, huge spots like I opened the washer and dumped a cup of bleach on the load. I rarely use more than a 1/4 cup on a load and it appears to all be dumped, undiluted, at once. So I say the value is very poor. I spent a fortune on a "good" washing machine that ruins all my linens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee Great machine
I bought this machine (WM8000HWA) based on the excellent reviews and so far I have been very happy with it. I am very fussy about my appliances. It handles a good sized load (queen sized comforter with no problem) and the clothes come out clean and unwrinkled. I was hesitant at first to buy another LG as my top load LG is horrible, this machine is much better and I am thrilled with it.
The only things I do not like about the machine is the black face on the door as well as the control panel. Probably the worst feature on this machine is the black faced control panel. It may be a cool contemporary look, but its its hard to see. Although the options light up, the settings don't, and I actually need a flashlight to see what I am selecting.
Additionally, I was surprised the door was black on this model, as it was special order and I didn't see it first; in the pictures it didn't seem to be black. Personally, I like to see my clothes when they are washing (although some people don't want to see them). I am NOT a fan of black. I was surprised to find this machine does have a light, but its not the same just seeing through the door.
I cant yet comment of the energy and water efficiency, I have not had it long enough and am replacing a huge monster of a machine.
Overall there is much more good than bad regarding this machine. I really love it, I am glad I bought it, and I would recommend it to a friend. It would have been 5 stars if the door and control panels were not black. I wish clear was an option.
