Our LG **WM1814CW, **not WM1812CW asa above,** **has served us very well in the two years we have had it. It id my first front loader, cleans large loads to my standards, operates quietly, and has all the wash options I desire. I would recommend it to anyone looking for front loading machine. The filter for the pump that catches and allows me to retrieve small items like rings or coins forgotten in pockets, which obviously protects the motor as well, is only available from LG, as far as I know. I have only needed service on this machine once for minor adjustment that was covered under warranty. I would recommend this machine anytime, and you can find them at your local Home Depot.
