    We have this one




    Quite seriously, I can wash anything in it. I like having the steam sanitary for my scrubs, the allergen cycle for anything the dog is on… we usually use the standard cycles… but I like to options. I can say honestly they were worth the investment, they are easy to use and the extra options are worth having. The accompanying dryer has been amazing. It doesn’t scorch my clothes. I can rack dry my delicates, my runners, you name it. It’s so quiet we stood there wondering if it was on when we first got it. It also has a drum clean feature, and reminds you to do it. 

    It uses far less energy and detergent than our old samsung set, which had endless problems. Seriously, we haven’t bought detergent in months. 

    FTR aways use powder detergent in your front loader, the liquid gucks it up. 

    edit, also the drum capacty is huge if you need it, but if you need to do a small load it adjusts so you never waste water or energy or detergent.

    We have LG front loaders and love them. But we’d love any that works well. 

    I know Samsung is really good as well.

    I think you’ll have a hard time finding a Bee who has had more than one brand recently, since they last a long time. Hard to ask us to compare, you know?

    Review sites will be your best bet!

    We have LG stackables to fit into our smaller space right now. They are great with a variety of settings, but a tad small. My grandmother has a nice set of whirlpool front loaders and we find ourselves taking the duvet and comforters over there to wash them because the front loaders fit the big loads much easier. Hope that helps!

    I have had LG washers/dryers twice now–once in a house that we rented, and in the house that we own we purchased a new LG set a couple years ago to replace the original washer/dryer.  I think they are the best, especially if you can get a good deal on them.

    One tip that I saw another person posted: do NOT ever use liquid detergent or liquid fabric softener in your front-loading LG washer.  The washer will end up smelling like mildew very quickly.  I buy powder detergent by the tubful from Amazon that works great.

    I have a pair of whirlpool frontloading stackables. They’re great for the most part. Once in a while they get unbalanced though and I have trouble figuring out what they want from me (they don’t have a display). I think this might be my fault though cause I might be overloading them :P! I don’t know!

    ETA: I always use plain white cycles for old clothes, whites, towels & underwears. They get cleaner & kill all the germs!

    I love my samsung set! They work great, are energy efficient, and both the washr and dryer sing to me when they are done!

    @zaakaawaa:  Ah, we don’t have kids either. But when we do, we’ll have enough room. Ane really, every now and again there becomes a need to do a big load of towes or something. We fill it regularily.
