Phenomenal little powerhouse
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our condo doesn't have a lot of space for our laundry machines so we went with this unit and are not the least bit sorry that we did. This little powerhouse handles everything we toss into it with ease and finesse. Its wide array of wash and fabric options in addition to temperature settings make it a breeze to get our laundry done. It's very quiet and even has a pleasant-sounding chime when the cycle is complete. The detergent loading drawer is easy and simple to use. It's quite simple to keep it clean. We have the matching dryer as well and it's a champ, too! We love LG appliances and this washer is at the top of our list.

      Features and Functionality
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased for a small area in a Condo. Purchased the Washer/Dryer combination that was stackable. It is stable and does a beautiful job washing clothes. Highly Recommended.

        Excellent washer
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this back in august and have had time to know how it works. I absolutely love it. The clothes get clean. I love how it cycles through to sense the soiled level, the material, how quiet it runs, and hold more capacity than one would think. I have no cons at all about this washer. I’m 69, had 3 children, raised big gardens, worked in tobacco and have washed lots of clothes in my time. I know my washing machines amd what i want them to do. I want them to clean the clothes and not be half wet when you take them out to either put in a dryer or hang on a line. This washer is perfect for both of those. The size would be perfect in a small apartment/condo/or a big ol house if you just wanted something to take up less space and do a good job. This is the one to get. Excellent excellent

          Perfect solution!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in a 55+ complex in a very restricted HOA. This washer/dryer was the perfect solution for me as I am 67 years old with disabilities. I never owned a compact washer and ventless dryer however, they are the best appliances. The washer is capable of washing my queen size bedding and my daughter and my three teenage grandchildren were here for a month and my daughter agreed with me how easy they are to use. Also, I saved approximately 3,000 dollars due to no vent and not having to jack hammer to tie into 3” drain. My photos will validate my claims. We bought our Grandchildren a 65 inch smart TV for Christmas and my husband and I purchased a LG TV as we are so impressed with your products. Thank you

            I am very pleased with this washer. I stacked it with the LE ventless dryer, and am actually enjoying doing laundry! It is very quiet but although I didnt notice much shaking during the spin cycle, the unit next to me sure did. The washer is on a wood floor in an upstairs unit, so I will try placing the unit on hard foam in the hopes of reducing the floor vibrations. Still happy with it, though!

            We have only had the LG front load washer for about 2 months but so far I am completely satisfied. Our application use for the washer was a bit different because we installed it in our Trawler and it's a 2.3 load capacity and the washer itself was assembled the only thing we had to do was level it. I do like the direct drive better then the belt driven, quieter & smoother spin out but time will tell how long it holds up on a boat. The touch screen settings are very sensitive several times I have brushed up against the washer and heard the sound it makes when you adjust the settings but it has not caused the settings to change. It's perfect size for just my husband and I and it fits perfect were we have it located. So far the movement of our boat has not effected the washer while operating. I love all the wash setting options you have and so far I am pleased with the outcome of the cleanliness & smell of my wash. I also like that it gives you a choice on spin out speed. Now would like to get matching dryer the one I have is not LG.

            Compared to the full size I had before I moved I am very impressed. My clothes came out very clean. The ventless dryer takes a little longer but over all very pleased with the set.

            Great machine for an apartment
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have owned this machine over a year and absolutely love it. We got the condensing dryer as well. It does an amazing job and is quiet. We live in a small apartment and I built a closet area to stack the 2 machines.
