LG : WM2301HR 27 Front-Load Washer with 4.2 cu. ft. Capacity Wild Cherry Red

Rating: 5 out of 5

I really love this machine. I have the dryer as well, and am extremely pleased with both.

This is my first front-loading machine and at first I was a little unsure about switching from a top-laoding washer. I really liked the appearance of the front-loader, but had concerns about the ease of adding items to the load after the cycle had started. It is true that you have to stop the machine to add to it, but it's really been a very minor issue. The ease of taking clothes out of the washer more than makes up for it. I'm only five feet tall, so I've always been irritated by standing on my tiptoes to reach into the bottom of the washer for small items. This irritation has been eliminated with this machine.

One of the other major benfits I've gotten from this machine is time savings. I have three children who create a lot of dirty laundry. With my old machine, I did two loads of laundry on an average day. If there were sports practices or extra messy activities, I had to do as many as three loads a day. Since buying the LG, I am down to one load a day for clothing. The LG can handle a much bigger load of laundry and gets it just as clean as a smaller one in my old washer. Before buying, I read many reviews of the LG and saw that some people claimed there were balance issues with this washer, but I've never had any.

Another thing I really like about this washer is that I no longer have to take comforters and blankets to the laundromat to wash them. This machine is able to handle even my queen comforter, which is quite heavy. I appreciate not having to waste time and money in a laundromat for this.

This washer was more expensive than any previous washer. I spent around $850 for it and only $375 for my last one. However, the savings in time and money will make that cost very worthwhile in my opinion.
