LG Electronics WM3470H(X)A High-Efficiency Front Load Washer comes with LG's revolutionary TurboWash technology that allows you to save 20 minutes on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance. It comes in two colors - White and Graphite Steel. The ultra large capacity (4.0 cu.ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads thus saving time and energy. There's no clean like a steam clean. LG's Steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles. Maximum spin speed of 1200 RPM almost dries the clothes. It saves on drying time and keeps clothes lint free too. This energy efficient washer is quiet and stylish looking. It saves on water and power bill. It also boasts an extra water heater on board for extra hot water to get rid of stubborn grease stains. This washer is easy to use with 12 wash programs and 11 different wash cycles.

Some users complain about the 'water hammers' causing water pipes at home to rattle and vibrate. This is very common problem with such washers because of quick-action valve in them. Since this washer calculates the wash time based on load size, it becomes hard to know actual wash time until after cycle is started.

Overall, LG Electronics WM3470H(X)A is one of the best front load washers available. Users love and highly recommend this washer for its performance, features and energy efficiency.
