(More customer reviews)We didn't buy this through Amazon.com, but got it at the Home Depot. It was on sale. We did all our research and found that Samsung won the JD Power award. However, we read reviews about Samsung not cleaning the clothes well. It was between Samsung and LG. We decided to go with LG. They came in 4th on JD Power, but had good reviews. Some reviews commented the vibration. They were right. When the machine is on rise cycle, it really vibrates. Hey, throw out the anti-vibration system because there isn't one when it is on this cycle. It might have been also attributed to being on the pedestal. It vibrates so so much that it shakes the dryer next to it, and they are not even touching each other. This is why I gave it a 4 rating. Also, another thing I didn't like was the door. It swings open, so it would bang against the table next to my washer. I heard that some other washers have a stiff opening that would stay as you open the door. This might be a minor thing. I also had a problem with the cycle itself. You can't stop and start the cycle. For instance, if you wanted to just run the spin mode, it won't let you do this. You have to run the whole cycle over again. Overall, I like the washer. It has simple control. The clothes come out clean. It has all the bells and whistles. I have not try the steam cycle yet, but I heard it's awesome. I'll let you know. Lastly, this washer looks really nice in our laundry room. I can't stop looking at it. This is like a work of art that you can't stop staring at it. Even with the good looks, I'm wondering how long this machine will last. We had a Whirlpool that lasted 9 years. I hope this LG will last 10 years and more.
