LG 2150 newbie user review
just received my fl w/d and have been putting it thru the paces. i must say, i am, for the most part, THRILLED w/my new w/d. our socks are white again, and the grunge in our jeans is gone! i am still experimenting w/all the settings, but, our clothes have NEVER been cleaner! yes, the cycles are longer, and due to the levelness of our floor,(it isn't), there is some vibration, but it is minimal and the machine doesn't walk anywhere. have washed bedding, sneakers, jackets, towels, dog things, pretty much the whole gamut of laundry, barring pillows, and the results are all excellent.
due to storms, the power flickered off several times, and i found it annoying that when this happened, i had to start the machine over from the beginning each time, even tho it was almost finished...any ideas there?
2 small issues are the 1) door, which i am not able to leave open just ajar; it swings halfway or all the way open; only problem is the pair is located in a busy hallway, so you have to walk around the door; would like to be able to leave it open only a few inches, but can live it.....the other is that 2) i like to use vinegar in the final rinse, so i put it in the fabric softener dispenser (never use fs), but it immediately runs into the prewash tray and is emptied into the machine (i'm assuming) almost immediately, defeating the purpose...i also like to use borax and oxyclean pwdr, but am at a loss how to use them unless i get some he powder det. (i have a large bottle of he liquid era i have to use up first). any ideas? would they work in the prewash, or could i simply put the borax or oxyclean directly in the tub? also,
i have not seen anything in the manual about monthly maintenence on the filter or anything, hope i'm not missing that.
i realize it's only been 3 days, and w/do another post several months from now, but i must say, that i am VERY HAPPY w/my new machine. it surpasses, by far, my old maytag tl, for cleaning ability. it has quite a large capacity, and is several inches deeper than my old washer, so keep this in mind if you are limited for space.
thanks for all the support and interesting reading. here's hoping these new machines w/last.
