Oow my friend, your clothes can't be that dirty.
Without the agitator you can easily wash bigger items....such as a comforter.
Agree with VB. We don't need the agitator. Without it we can wash our comforters. We got the LG with the Turbo drive and it is very quiet and efficient. Our old dryer is LG. The old machine was a front load and like VB mentioned I had to clean it so often to get rid of the mold and smell.
