Pros:Outstanding peformance. Quiet and efficient washer and dryer.

Cons:None.

The Bottom Line: These are the best washers made. Period.


We really like this LG washer and dryer set. It is quiet, and super easy to use. They look great too in the blue color. Clothes come out much cleaner than before. We like how there are so many different washer and dryer settings to use in special circumstances. The washer spins out the clothes much dryer than conventional washers, so your dryer does not need to take as long to dry the clothes, saving energy and money. The washer uses very little water so you save here also. The washer is more gentle on your clothes too – so they last longer and look better.

This is by far the best washer and dryer we have every owned. Worth every penny we spent on them.

It seems like all front loading washers can have vibration problems if they are not placed on a REAL solid floor and perfectly level. I’ve read many complaints regarding this problem with all of the major brands (Whirlpool, GE, LG, Sears Kenmore and more).

Here’s what we did to solve the noise and vibration problem. I can’t take credit for this solution as we read this solution in another review and tried it and it worked for us. I am VERY grateful I found the solution on the Internet.

We have a weak floor that vibrated & the washer on spin cycle would travel around the floor due to the vibration. Leveling the washer was NOT enough to stop this problem. We had a local lumberyard cut us three 1”x12” solid oak boards to place on the floor as a solid base for our washer and dryer. We also put a stall mat on top of these boards. A stall mat comes in 4’x6’ dimensions and is inches thick. It’s made of an extremely dense rubber material (one of these mats will weigh 100 pounds or more). The stall mats are available anywhere farm materials are sold. Sometimes they are called cow mats, or horse mats or even barn mats. They are made to cushion the floor for a horse or cow (and can withstand the wear and tear of 1400+ pounds of animal and their hooves and waste each day so they’re VERY durable). I bought ours for less than $40 so it’s NOT an expensive solution. You can cut the mat to size with a common utility knife. Just lift the edge of the mat and cut the proper width. It’s not difficult.

Once the washer and dryer are placed on this solid base, you won’t have ANY problems with vibration or noise. Even an apartment installation would be adequate to dampen vibration to those below the apartment. It works great. The base looks professional too if you make it to the exact size of the washer/dryer combo.
