The LG WM2801HRA is a front loading 4.5 cubic ft ultra-capacity SteamWasher that uses LG's patented TrueSteam technology to create real steam to remove wrinkles and odors. A larger square door has been added to this machine making it easier to load, and the front control panel features an LED display and Dial-A-Cycle with 9 wash programs and 5 wash/rinse temperature settings. Many advanced LG technologies have been included such as TrueBalance anti-vibration system and LoDecibel quiet operation, making it usable in any room of the house even on the second floor. Energy saving systems like SenseClean automatically determine water level and cycle time by the weight and size of each load, as well there is a Wash/Rinse Optimizer that further shortens cycle time after calculating water softness and detergent level. SteamFresh is a 20 minute cycle that can freshen up to 5 garments quickly, while the Allergiene cycle removes over 95% of household allergens like pet dander and dust mites from even delicate material. DirectDrive motor comes with a 10 year warranty.

Door latch assembly fails often and requires service call. Mine failed at 14 months - just out of warranty.
