Clothes come out really clean
I needed a new washing machine and this one had good reviews. And it works well. What I was not expecting is to get any use from the 'steam' setting. This is an add-on to some of the cycles, where it uses small amounts of steam to enhance the cleaning. My nice towels had some dirt stains on them, which I had tried many ways of removing (by hand, rubbing in various types of detergents, laundry boosters, ...). Figuring it wouldn't hurt to try, I put these in and selected the steam setting.
Excellent steam feature
The LG WM2650HWA manages to deliver an excellent steam feature while keeping costs low - around the $900 mark. It's not just price consideration that earns it top honors however, but the combination of many features into one machine. This front-loader is incredibly energy-efficient, using an average of 5 gallons of water per load.
Decent in general
I've had the AWN542 for almost 3 years now. I initially bought it to get something sturdy, simple, without a lot of electronics that could go bad. I have had no mechanical problems with it so far, everything works okay. Generally it gets clothes clean. The one problem I do have is that it rips holes in clothes. Not every time, and not every load. Just on occasion. Jeans seem to be the worst, as I've had 3 pairs rip in the last 3 years.
Money well spent
When we decided to upgrade our washer I scoured the internet looking at review after review for all different brands and types. Immediately I realized that front loaders were out. Why should you have to perform extra cleaning to your washer so it doesn't smell like mildew? So after cutting the field in half, I wanted large capacity, energy and water efficiency and last but most important cleaning effectiveness. So why did I pick this particular model?
A consistently top-rated model for me, the LG WT5070CW is this year's version of a washer I have continually followed and given top honors to. It is a top-loading model, but is just as energy efficient (3-5 gallons per load) as any front-loader. It closes the efficiency gap while still offering the class and convenience of a top-loader. 4.7 cu. ft. of space makes it one of the largest on the market, and 12 customizable wash cycles give you every available option.
Well-received and excellent operating machine
Samsung runs a competing model to the LG WM2250CW. They both contain simple operation and affordable price points. They have both also expanded that line, adding a couple more features and charging a touch more for those features. This Samsung is part of the next step up, containing a few more wash cycles, and a stainless steel rim that adds a touch of class to a somewhat basic model. With a 3.7 cu. ft. capacity, 9 cycles, and VRT technology, this is only a slight step up from the #1 model.
Good cleaning performance
The Samsung WF330ANW/XAA front-loading washer gets good ratings from both professionals and users for its cleaning performance, quietness and low vibration. This 3.7-cubic-foot washer is Energy Star-rated and features nine wash cycles (including a high-temperature sanitize cycle), and four spin speeds.
Probably be Whirlpool's biggest seller of higher end washers
This machine isn't as efficient as some other washers in its price range. It sits on the high side with its $38.98 yearly operating cost. This number is derived from the Whirlpool Duet WFW94HEA's high water and electricity usage Anyone buying this washer will have to consider the long term costs. This is especially true if your water costs are above the national average.
Just what I was looking for!
Will this machine be reliable? Will it last sixteen years like my old Maytag? Only time will tell. However, I can tell you that it appears to be well built. It may not be flashy to look at, but it doesn't contain electronic touch-pad controls, a computer, or an LCD display to go bad just outside of the warranty period. In the event that something does go wrong, I don't think it's going to cost a fortune to have it fixed.
Great Product! Cleans Great! Great options
This washer and dryer set is by far the best I have ever seen or owned. I do less laundry now because the wash machine can handle such a huge load! Of course this huge load of laundry easily stuffs into the over capacity dryer and drys fast! Saves energy and detergent because you do less laundry. Although, you still have to fold the same amount of clothes!! ;) I would highly recommend this washer and dryer set to anyone.
Good washing performance
The Electrolux EIFLS55IIW is a well priced($740) front loading washing machine which offers strong cleaning performance. Washing does involve more wear and tear on clothes than other washers, though, and the door is very awkward to open and close.
Customer care service is very poor
I purchased the washer along about 3 months ago and more than for few weeks now I am having a trouble with it. The washer stops working sometimes on the middle of the cycle and sometimes on the beginning during putting water in. I called Electrolux and they gave me two service providers' numbers which were so hard to get hold of. Finally technician from one company came to see it and the machine was working fine at that time; therefore, he said there is nothing wrong with it.
My wife and I did a lot of investigation before we bought a washer because we have many friends who have gotten the newer computer aided washers which control water level and most other features. In short this washer, according to my wife, is fantastic. It is quiet, cleans well, and she is able to control everything. As far as I am concerned it is great because it is very well made and most of all MADE IN THE USA.
