I would totally recommend having this LG front-load washer because of the kind of clean that it gives me. I know that even if there is so much dirt in my clothes, I can have them cleaned without hassle. I am a part of the football team, so I know what it means to have left-over stain on your clothes. I was quite sceptic at first and I thought, for the price that I pay for this, this better have a really good quality and clean. I would not want to have any stains left on my clothes and make them look as if they were not washed at all. There are washing machines that I have used which spins the clothes for a number of hours and still remain as if the dirt was just there and not washed away. With this LG front-load washer, I can make sure that my clothes are really clean and smelling fresh.
The dryer gives would definitely need less time under the sun since it does well in that area. There are even pieces of clothing that are totally dry and there is no need for it to be basked under the sun and it still smells fresh. It is still important though, that you clean the gasket at least once a week to remove mold and mildew and also to prevent discoloration. It is also a good practice to keep the glass clean and dry every after use. Keep the door open for a few minutes after using it to avoid the smell of the soap inside.
Maintenance of this kind of washer is quite difficult, but is surely worth it. Aside from the gasket, it is important that you have it checked once a month for maintenance just to make sure that nothing is stuck anywhere like coins.
Another thing that I really liked about this is the fact that it is so quiet that you would not know somebody is actually doing the laundry. It does not compete with the television or the stereo and that is something that I really appreciate.
