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.
I bought this machine together with its matching electrical dryer. I have had it for two weeks. They both look so great, and they have a lot of functions. The washer operates very quitely even at full spin. It takes such a big load, I washed 37 T-shirts and 30 briefs plus a few other items in one load, and there was room for more. One of the nice features is that you can choose how many times you want to rinse.
Wash performance doesn't suffer with speedier cycles
Overall, the LG WM3470HVA's wash performance was only slightly above average, with some underperforming cycles dragging down the LG's cumulative scores. However, the 39 minute Cottons/Normal cycle managed to get clothes very clean, very fast. That alone is reason enough to put this washer on your shopping list.
Convenient and cost effective
This washer costs $34.91 to run over the course of a year, which is fairly average. We are neither impressed nor particularly upset over this number, but users can lower it by using the Whites cycle sparingly, which adds an extra rinse to wash out bleach, thereby increasing the annual cost.
Plenty of customizable goodies
Get those Olympic logo socks over here, Usain Bolt, because the Samsung WF457ARGSGR/AA has one of the fastest Normal cycles weâ?? ve seen, and the overall performance in terms of stain removal is satisfactory across the board. This MSRP $1,799 washer ($1,530 on sale), while certainly not the top contender, does a solid job nonetheless. We only wish that it was less expensive to run, more competitive in terms of clothes handling, and a bit better with water retention.
Overall decent machine
Make sure you remove the 4 bolts with the rubber bushing on the back put there for shipping before washing clothes otherwise you will watch the machine dance down the hallway when it starts the spin cycle. Also where the water lines connect on the back they are plastic and are very hard to get the hoses to seat and seal properly. It still shakes a little on spin cycle but just make sure you have the legs adjusted right.
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.
I purchased this washer/dryer pair about three months ago, replacing a 12year old kenmore top loader. I was concerned about vibration, odor, how the machine would hold up etc. But so far it has been an excellent performer. I will take note from the other reviewer and jot down the serial number, just in case.
My biggest thumbs up is savings in water and reduced drying time.
Expensive piece of Trash
I purchased an LG Washer WM2655HVA 4 months from Home Depot. A couple of months after purchasing the Washer we started facing issues with this Washer when it started giving an LE indicator ( indicating heavy load ). Though the load of clothes was average, we kept getting this message results every other day till we called LG Customer Representative who told us to reduce the load. Yesterday I put only 1 bedsheet for washing & we again faced the issue for 2 hrs 50 mins.
Easy detergent dispenser
This excellent graphite steel washer from LG combines the best of high efficiency with steam technology to form a truly worthy appliance. 3.6 cu. Ft. of capacity, 9 wash cycles, 5 temperature settings, anti-vibration, anti-noise, and an easy detergent dispenser are just some of the features this model boasts. Its easy operation is one of the keys to its highly-rated success. The steam function, although not top in its field, is excellent and translates well to your laundry.
Very eco-friendly--uses very little water or energy
The General Electric GFWS3500LWW is a mid-cost front load washer. The capacity of this washer is 4.9 cubic feet, and it is equipped with several options to make laundry easier. The HydroHeater of this washer, an internal water heater, boosts incoming water temperature to brighten whites while helping eliminate common bacteria.
The Steam Refresh option helps reduce wrinkles and odors and rejuvenates fabrics.
So far we have been delighted
we love this washer so far. We have had no problem and clothes are coming out cleaner than ever.
I recommend you actually read the manual so you understand how to operate it properly. I see a lot of negative reviews different places on the internet because it appears these people aren't using it properly. Just 10 minutes with the manual and make sure you use the right cycles as explained in the manual.
