I meant the washer doesn't have the standard center-post agitator like traditional top load washers. :)

The front of the lid tucks under so the washer gets air when not in use. This prevents any must smells.

I have a king size comforter and while I do not think its still 2" think (mine is older and lost some of its puff) I do think the washer would handle it. There's a cycle for " heavy bedding" or something like that. I do notice that the comforter tends to ball up in the dryer and doesn't quite get the inside of the ball fully dry. I just pull it out and adjust it and dry again. I don't think any dryer is gonna fully dry that comforter in one shot but it still beats taking to the laundromat to use the industrial size machine!

This model does have a "Bulky/Bedding" cycle for items such as pillows, comforters and other articles which have difficultly absorbing water. ONLY WASH SMALL LOADS to make sure there is plenty of room for the load to move during washing. Keep like items together; do not mix large bulky items with smaller clothing items.

Simple wash? Just put your clothes and detergent in and hit play. Literally the start button is the triangle "play" symbol found on any CD,DVD VCR etc. the machine will sense the weight and size of your load and figure out what cycle it needs to wash the best. It is so easy and I've NEVER folded clothes and thought "oh this is still dirty I better wash again"

It is not absolutely necessary, however the fabric softener "cycle" will distribute the fabric softener more evenly during the final rinse cycle

The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. Selecting the "Fabric Softener" button to changes the final rinse type from "jet spray rinse" to "fill tub rinse". Neither is "better" so to speak for the softener itself, it's simply a different option. The jet actually helps water get in into the fabrics better. You may not need to use the button unless you find that "fill tub rinse" is better for you. - I hope this clarifies it ;) Thank you for your question! Have an amazing week.

As it turns out, black is not available, the closest may be LG's Graphite Steel color:

Yes, regular cleaning of the tub on a monthly basis using TUB CLEAN will keep the tub clean and fresh.
- When you use liquid chlorine bleach, load it into the liquid chlorine bleach compartment.
- When you use a powdered cleaner, pull out the liquid detergent cup and add it into the main wash detergent compartment.
- When you use cleaning tablets, place them directly into the washer tub. (Do not add tablet cleaner to the drawer.)
