This small and versatile front load washer is only 24 inches wide, so it can fit easily into available spaces in a condo, apartment or small house. It has a 2.3-cubic-foot capacity, but given this compact machine’s design, you can do plenty of laundry with it. You get nine programs, including cycles for delicate fabrics, hand washing, sanitary washing and baby wear, and big and bulky items. This machine also comes with a prewash capability, extra rinse option and stain care function. If you have a young child, this is a good choice, since it comes with a door safety lock and quiet operation so you can do laundry during nap time. In case you want a matching electric dryer, the LG DLEC888W is designed to go with this washer.

It gives you a condensation-type drying mode that does not require a vent that extends to the outdoors, which is a great capability if you live in a place that does not let you extend such features outdoors. It also has a 4.2-cubic-foot interior, 14 drying programs, a dampness sensor, quiet operation and intuitive controls. This dryer also is stackable with the washer.

With dimensions of only 24 inches wide, 33.5 inches high and 25.25 inches deep, this versatile and handy front load washer is a great choice for individuals, couples and families whose homes are short on space. It is also stackable with a matching dryer in case your laundry space is best suited for that approach.

This capable machine has nine washing cycles, including ones for baby clothes, bulky items like bedding, and permanent press, delicate and cotton clothing. You also get a speed wash for when you need your clothes clean fast and a hand-wash cycle that can effectively but gently wash fabrics such as wool.

There are five rinse temperatures, four spin speeds, three soil-level settings and 10 additional features, including a prewash interval, extra rinse, stain care and a custom program. With the delayed washing cycle, you can program the washer to start cleaning at your convenience, possibly when no one in the household needs quiet time for studying or sleeping, or when energy costs in your community are lower. Another convenience is that this washer fills with the correct amount of water automatically, depending on the size of the load you are cleaning.

If you have young children in the house, you do not need to worry about them being around this front loading washer, since it has a child lock. You also get status indicators on the control panel so you know what stage your laundry is in at any given time. This machine is balanced so that it does not vibrate and rattle, and it has four legs that you can adjust as needed. It operates quietly, so you will not be listening to a noisy machine chugging along. However, you will still hear a signal when a washing cycle is done.

This front loading washing machine pairs well with the LG DLEC855W clothes dryer, which has identical dimensions and looks the same. This electric dryer is ventless, which is a boon for anyone living in an apartment or condo that does not permit venting air to the outdoors. It deposits the excess moisture from wet laundry in a removable reservoir, and it has an abundance of drying programs and levels.
