The 15-minute fast wash was true to its word, but some of the other cycles clocked in at longer than their promised time. In order to get out some stubborn stains, we set the cycle to whitest whites and added the chocolate stain soak and perfect steam options. Already a long wait at 140 minutes, the actual time it took was two hours and 43 minutes. The cycles were also just long in general, no doubt because of the extra time to premix the water and detergent. While a 47-minute normal cycle isn’t a deal breaker, it is longer than LG’s TurboWash , which takes closer to half an hour. Still, the results of these extended cycles are exceptionally clean clothes, so it’s not a bad trade-off.
