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.
Low Cost to Run
The LG WM2250CW is a mid tier washing machine. After all the test results came in, we didn't feel impressed or disappointed. The washing performance was less than average given the price point. When it first came out, had an MSRP of $799, but we were able see units available for as low as $717. However, the WM2250CW makes up for this shortfall by being slightly ahead of the pack in efficiency.
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.
Made a clean sweep of grime, from carbon to sweat
The Ariston ARWL129NA is an excellent washing machine that just happens to be compact. It doesn't offer a ton of special features, but the Italian import is an excellent choice for anyone without the benefit of a huge laundry room.
Though it does the cleaning of a washer twice its size, washers aren't sold by the cubic foot, which is why it has a relatively high $899 MSRP.
If you can't fit a full-sized machine in your house, check out the Ariston ARWL129NA.
Slow, poor rinse performance
I've had this machine about nine months. It replaced an old Frigidaire front-loader that worked fine, but was 10 years old and starting to leak from the tub.
The washer has extremely long cycle times. It takes about 90 minutes to do a load of whites and 72 minutes for a regular load. If I had known, I'd not have bought the machine.
Also, it has frustratingly poor rinse performance.
Very good cleaning performance
With an annual cost to operate of around $38, the Whirlpool Duet WFW9151YW is inefficient compared to other front loading machines we've tested. If you're replacing an older washer or a top loader, though, you'll still notice a dip in your electric bill.
All good except for goofy detergent loading drawer
We use this washer at an outpatient physical therapy clinic, so it gets alot of use. I can't say we've had any issues with it washing our laundry and it's held up for some time now with frequent daily use. However, I decided to write a review to let potential buyers know of an odd design flaw in this machine.
I am so happy with my purchase!
This washer is amazing! I purchased the washer and matching dryer after my very old washer died. I've owned this washer for 8 months and I've found many advantages... The clothes are just as clean as if they were washed in a top loading washer. I'm notice a significant decrease in my energy costs. I can add addition items during a wash unlike some front loaders. I hate doing laundry, but I absolutly love my washer!
Great entry-level front loader
It's $849 MSRP is very high, but nobody will ever pay that - sale prices are often as low as $629. Unfortunately for Samsung, there's tough competition in this segment. We'd recommend shopping around before making a final decision, as there are many other washers that perform as well for a similar or lower price.
However, this is one of the more efficient washers we've ever tested. On average, a year with the Samsung WF210ANW should cost no more than $31.
