LG WM2233HW Front Load Washer
This front loading washing machine has a generous 4 cu ft capacity, and it is Energy Star compliant.

It’s available in white or emerald green and there is a matching dryer unit.
Front loaders, such as this one, are ideal where space is a premium, as the dryer can be stacked on top. If the low height is a problem it is possible to purchase a matching 13” high drawer pedestal; ideal for storing detergent.

Handles Large loads
The washing machine is very popular with customers. It looks good, particularly in the emerald green; it’s unusual for a washer to be complimented on its appearance. It also does an excellent job of washing clothes. Of course, that is what it is meant to do, but so many washers disappoint their users, particular some of the newer Energy Star compliant models that use a lot less water. It handles large loads well, making it very popular in households with several children.
Many owners of this machine have found that it helps to cut their power and utility bills, which means they are saving money and making a contribution to the environment at the same time. Some people say it
has saved them hundreds of dollars. Unusually for a larger capacity machine with a high spin, the LG is considered as being very quiet by its users, which is another great benefit.
Tons of Features
The wealth of controls can be a little daunting at first, but users soon find they are easy to use and there is a child lock mechanism which prevents children from pressing buttons and changing the programming while it is running. The useful LED display shows settings, time remaining and any status messages.
Unfortunately not everyone has had a good experience with this machine. Some owners complain that it starts to smell of mildew after a while, and that this odor is being transferred to the clothes. This might be because they are not following the manufacturer’s instructions, which are to leave the door open after each wash so that it can dry out completely inside. Others report leaks and occasional electrical faults. The rubber seal around the door needs to be checked regularly to ensure nothing has got stuck in it, and to prevent mold from growing. The wash cycles generally take longer than with a top-loader.
If you are looking for a washer that’s easy on the eye and delivers what you want in the laundry department, then you really should take a good look at the LG WM2233H. It might be a little more expensive than other machines, but it’s got plenty of fans out there. When lots of Moms say that they love it, and that it’s the best machine they’ve ever owned, you’ve got to take notice.More LG Washer ReviewsLG Washing Machines Main Page
