I searched for a good washer and dryer for long time and now I know I made the right decision. This an automatic washer with traditional look. I purchased the matching dryer and they are the awesome. In one day you can wash and dry 10 loads... Don't search anymore buy this one.

The hot cycle on this machine is actually warm. Both hot and cold water are added to the machine on the hot cycle. I was told if I wanted to wash in hot to use bright white or sanitary. On bright whites the internal heater is supposed to heat the water up to 122 degrees. The water coming from my hot water heater is all ready at 140 so the machine cools of perfectly hot water and then is supposed to heat it back up. However my bright whites cycle is only 90 degrees. Also, I can not wash ONE set of sheets or a blanket without it getting out of balance. My whites do not come clean and are now dingy.

love washer, glad i replaced
from Maryville, TN, USA
the washer is so superior to previous one, which was a top end appliance, in that it has so many options that are actually usable. i would buy again with no hesitation. and i was leary when there was no middle agitator but it works great.
from central coast of california
Bought this mainly for large size--we have lots of visitors which means lots of towels and sheets. It can handle a large load. But the accompanying dryer can't, so that means the large load in the washer is sort of useless. Things come out with more wrinkles than with other machines I've used, unless you set it on the lower spin cycles--so you are losing the energy efficiency of higher spin cycles or settling for more wrinkled clothes. No delicate cycle?? Whose idea was that?? Differences between the numerous choices seem meaningless. All the choices just make it more complicated to operate. It does get the clothes clean with minimal water use--something that was high on my list. Haven't had any problems with it getting out of balance like some reviewers mention as I am careful when clothes are loaded. Doesn't quite fit under a standard cabinet with doors with top of washer open so I am constantly lowering top to get at detergent and softener in the cabinet. Suppose I could move it a bit more away from the wall, but it is already farther away from the wall than any other machine I've had.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This machine has a severe rust problem around the bleach dispenser. Problem reported with pictures to L G but got no response. No more L G products for me .
ease of use
from Fort Hood, TX, USA
Being in the military my uniform gets incredibly dirty and my laundry piles up. A good washer and dryer become an essential part of your daily routine. It has a large capacity and can handle king sized comforter along with other articles of clothes with ease. I greatly appreciate the already programmed settings which allows me to just throw it on the setting I need and forget about it. As simplistic as it sounds, the sounds it makes do kind of add to the experience and lets you know when it is done in a more soothing way than the typical buzzing noise. Overall I was off put at the cost and couldn't initially justify spending the money but am happy I did. Incredibly satisfied at this time.
from Elizabethtown, KY, USA
At first I thought the washer was not putting in enough water to wash and rinse adequately, but It seems to be doing an excellent job. I would have liked a cycle for knits, but am finding other options. I am used to using a second rinse on some loads and continue to use that option. And for most loads I prefer not to use high speed spin. I do like the chime at the end of the wash, though visitors thought it was my cell phone going off at first.
This washer is fun....
from Clifton Park, NY
This is my 4th washer in my lifetime that I have purchased. Washing clothes is about as exciting as watching paint dry....until I got the LG top load washer. I have never seen how the inside works before and well frankly it was kind of fun watching how the washer senses the cloths and then cleans them thru each cycle. The best part is there is more room in the LG than the "other guy" without having that big center agitator. I have always had a 4.7 cy ft and still could never wash my bed quilt. I always had to go to the commercial laundry to have it done. Well not anymore. I washed my quilt and it came out amazing. Not only did I save money but I saved time and time is so precious. Thank you LG for making a daily chore so pleasurable.
Good but not great
from Washington County, MN, USA
This is our 2nd top load high efficiency washer. The drawer to put in the detergent is inconvenient and we tend to forget to close it. There is no delicate cycle so I have had to create my own. The clothes bunch up much more in this one than the one we replaced. I just hope this one lasts longer than our old one. I guess for the money it was okay but I think they could have designed it to be more user friendly.
Great value and Features
from Gainesville, Ga
So far I've used all the settings and it works great. I like that you can see what's going on in the washer. I like the ability to change options and try out different settings for different loads.
Worst washer i have ever owned.
from Virginia, USA
I had problems with this machine before the recall but now they are worse. No matter the size of the load, the washer will not spin out clothing. I left a simple load of dark clothing in and went to the store for two hours. When I came home the load was still rinsing and spinning. This went on for three HOURS! My water bill has increased and the dryer takes hours because the clothing is not properly spun out. I have started ringing out blankets before I dry them. We have a family of 7 this is a nightmare.
