This is our second LG front loader. The first lasted about 11 years before the bearings finally wore out. We had been happy with the wash quality, but had got used to the incredibly loud noise when spinning.
This one was a merciful relief. Very quiet when washing, and not much louder when spinning. Everything washes really clean, and with the fast spin, they come out nearly dry. So overall I am pretty happy.
I haven't go the hang of getting towels to dry soft. They are a bit crisp rather than cuddly, even with fabric softener.
The only drawbacks are the long cycle, and the fact that I can't set a "favourite" cycle, that uses only cold water.
