We bought the matched washer and dryer about 10 months ago on special price at Lowes to replace our aging Whirlpool. We love the smaller size for the two of us and they can be hard to find in stores. Both the washer and dryer have out preformed what we expected. They handle any items we have washed it them with excellent results.

Perfect size and works beautifully..

My house is very old and the previous owners built a back porch over the basement opening. Since then (47 years) I have had to get small washing machines and dryers. It has become increasingly difficult to get these smaller appliances that can hold at least more than 2-3 shirts. The LG compact washer is great! It has ample room for doing a regular wash load and it fits through our basement door! I do not ordinarily like tons of options on washing machines (I believe I'm a reincarnated Puritan), but this washer is pretty decent.

Loving it so far!

I haven't had my washer very long but so far I am extremely pleased with it! I haven't used all the cycles but for my everyday clothes and towels the washer has done an excellent job. The high spin cycles do tend to vibrate but the medium speed has worked well, even on the towels, so I use the low/medium spin speeds. So far, so good. And for anyone who has used the compact washers in the past, believe me when I say they have gotten so much better! For condo and apartment dwellers with limited space, this washer works great and I am very happy with it and with the LG brand and quality!

I love this washer. Although I had to get a small washer that would fit under the counter, it has a good load capacity. I love all the different options and how quietly it operates. As an added bonus, its pretty to look at. I also love the pretty little tune it plays to signal the load is done. Great washer.
