LG WM1812CW 3.4 Cu. Ft. Washer

Posted

Pros: large capacity, wash cycle options, efficient operating cost.

Cons: will vibrate entire house if not perfectly level. Proned to foul smell,

This is a fantastic washing machine. We've had it for over 3 years without any problems. 

We noticed the difference in our electricy bill when we replaced our old top load with this model. It also requires much less water. And perhaps most importantly, moisture is spun out of the clothes well enough that they are only barely damp when you remove them from the machine. As a result, drying time is shortened by about half.

I have noticed some people complaining online about theirs having a foul smell, and ours has also had this problem at intervals; however, this is usually due to operator error (using too much detergent).  Aside from that, we recently had a problem with the water not draining out of the machine... we expected the pump was shot, however, a quick look at the user manual pointed us to the water filter... easily accessible from the front of the machine, we cleaned the filter and we were back to washing laundry within a couple of minutes and without any expense.

Overall, a great buy... this machine has paid for itself several times over.

Pros: quiet, low water use, gets clothes clean

 I love this washer.  It weighs the clothes load to determine the amount of water to use.  I also use less detergent.  The cycles are quick and clothes come out clean.
