LG knows how to build a great front-loading washing machine, and the WM3770HWA is proof. TurboWash can get clothes clean in just 30 minutes, Sanitize and Allergiene cycles are great for families, and downloadable specialty cycles can tackle any kind of stain. It's also gentle on fragile fabrics. Available in two colors—white or graphite—the WM3770HWA offers fast cycles and great stain removal at a competitive price.
The LG WM3670HWA lets you do your laundry your way. With five different soil, temperature, and spin levels, you can customize a million different ways for every situation. Other options like Water Plus, help you clean more unique stains like heavy soils. However, the WM3670's coup de grace is its internal water heater. Our sensors picked up maximum temperatures north of 140°F, enough to clean even cloth diapers.

With a steam cycle, a sanitizing wash, and a 5.2 cu. ft. capacity, this giant LG has a unique, sleek look that will class up a laundry room. We were impressed by how much it could fit—and how well it cleaned. Since it's compatible with LG's TwinWash system, you could even do two loads at once. And a 34-minute TurboWash cycle saves time, too. If you've got a lot of laundry to do, this LG will make short work of it.

The LG WM3270CW does a great job of addressing two of the complaints hurled from the pro-top load camp. First, the stink. While it true that older front loaders accumulated odors, this LG has a magnetic stopper that props the door open just enough to let in fresh air.
Secondly, front loaders use less water—generally a benefit but maligned by many who believe that more water equates with more cleaning. LG skirts the argument by adding a button that fills the tub with extra water.
Overall, the LG WM3270CW is a great value with excellent cleaning performance and a features that may winner some converts.
