About a month ago we installed a new LG 5.0 cubic foot Mega Capacity Front Control TURBOWASH™ washer and coordinating gas dryer into our new home. I received these appliances gratis from the incredible team at LG so I could experience them first hand and share my impressions, and let me say I’ve never been more excited to share a product with you! Here are my first thoughts after using the washer and dryer for about a month.
1) Capacity. When they say MEGA, they are not joking. This top loading machine is unbelievably huge! At a whopping 5 feet tall, I literally need a step stool to reach all of the clothes out of the bottom of the washer at the end of the cycle. I am not complaining – I can fit at least double the clothes in one load than I could in my previous front loader. Huge points for busy moms, especially during the summer where my kiddos are going through a couple of outfits and swim clothes a day.
2) Speed. Now this huge capacity that I’m talking about? Imagine doing twice the load size in less than the typical load time and the clothes come out squeaky clean. I can do all my weekend laundry in just a couple of loads as opposed to all weekend long. Now folding it and putting it away is another story. I’m still learning all of the different settings on the washer and dryer and looking forward to testing all of the many features.
3) Looks. I’m not going to lie: this is one good looking washer and dryer pair. It’s funny the things I find attractive these days. Anything that helps me maximize my time with my family is on the list! In fact, the laundry room is one of the favorite rooms in our new house, and installing the new LG washer and dryer has inspired me to decorate the room with a little more flair than the average laundry room. Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing a reveal as we complete each room of our house.
