Help. Which LG front loader washer?

Posted by maggiewp (My Page) on

I'm in the market for a new washer/dryer and Home Depot has some great specials right now. What I am having trouble deciding is which front loader I need. Do I need the one that specifies that is has a ColdWash feature. Will I wish I had the turbo (speeds up wash time)feature. And is the steam feature in the washer a good thing. My inclination is to go with the entry level FL (3.6 DOE cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer Model # WM2250CW) but if anyone thinks the extra features are worth it, I'd appreciate hearing about it. We are a family of 5, but I don't necessarily think I need a bigger washer (4.0 or larger) because we do laundry fairly often (sports uniforms that need to be washed in short order!)

And yes, I know some folks don't like LG, but I'm OK with the brand, we have good service folks locally and I am aware that I will need to wipe out the washer and keep the door ajar. I did see that there is a magnetic latch on new models that keeps the door from closing completely for airing it out, but I don't see how it will help much (since it really doesn't keep it open much at all).

And maybe I should get the extended warranty just in case?

I just purchased the LG 4.0 model that home depot has on sale. It has very good reviews & just an FYI that that sale is ending tomorrow on the LGs. LG actually put on a special so most of the stores has that washer for $899 but it is listed on the LG site as also ending tomorrow. The smaller one also ends tomorrow. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up. What made you opt for this one (over the more basic one)? Also did you get an extended warranty? I was thinking that I didn't need the steam, but maybe 10% difference in size will be noticeable (my old washer is the larger size)?

I opted for the larger machine because I wanted to be able to wash our queen/king bedding with out squishing it, I liked the smoked glass look better, & out of about 100 reviews on multiple sites I only found one bad review and it sounds like they are talking about a different model. I just liked the larger model better.
