I read so many horrible reviews on the manufacturers that I expected to use, e.g. Maytag, Kenmore. LG customers appeared satisfied and happy, which is more than I could say for other washer reviewers. It has a cycle at the beginning called Load Sensing. It moves the clothing around. I'm assuming the purpose is to "even it out". It does the opposite. If you put the load in evenly, it changes it so it's out of balance and you have to redistribute it prior to the wash cycle. Just weird. It has the Add a Garment feature, which shouldn't even be a feature on a washer but I'm happy it has it. The capacity is HUGE. I have never filled it. Seems like quality equipment, which it should be for the price. I've had it for a month and so far, so good. The number of wash settings is excessive. Nobody needs that many. I always choose the same cycles...partially due to what other customers complain about from other manufacturers: the agitation is so rough, it can damage or twist your clothes. I always use the "lightly soiled" setting and it's not a problem. My clothes still come out fine. The cycles are longer than the old machines...45 min. - 1 hour. However, there is an Express load. I would have given it 5 stars but didn't due to the Load Sensing issue.

The mechanical design of the unit is basically OK. It does not appear the software engineers consulted the mechanical designers for the original or updated firmware. Possibly the laboratory testing of the unit before product release was not extensive enough as well. The start of the wash cycle where the unit attempts to balance the load actually causes much of the trouble by tying the articles in knots; it should be eliminated and done after filling with water. The recovery cycle used for (uE) error is done that way. However, after the load is balanced, no further cycle algorithms that would attempt to maintain balance should be implemented as it actually results in an unbalanced condition and creates a page fault cycle. The spin cycle speed should not be adjusted slower with the inverter drive as the increased torque load will overheat the motor, which it does. We have been able to use our machine by always selecting the (Speed Wash) cycle and manually selecting wash temperature, soil level and ALWAYS selecting EXTRA HIGH spin speed. In most cases this allows the unit to complete a wash load. However the initial balance algorithm is problematic as mentioned before. We are very unhappy with this product.

Rusting Out

By 

from Indiana, United States

Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

The unit is 4.5 years old and rusting out on the lid and around the tub. I don't think this should happen. The motor has a 10 year warranty but the unit won't last that long due to the rust.

          from Marietta GA

          Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

          Nasty lines of gritty lint and dirt show on dark clothes. They have to be rubbed off the supposedly clean item with a wet rag after they are taken out of the washer. This washer uses so little water that the clothes don't come clean. There is no way to set the water level. I learned to "trick" the level by turning off the machine with clothes and water in it, then starting it again, turning it off, and doing this 3 times. Then there is enough water in the tub to wash the clothes. You can not spin the clothes much or the dirty lines appear. It doesn't matter how often you clean the machine with the speacial tub cleaner, the fact is it doesn't use enough water. Hate this machine.

              from Long Beach, CA, USA

              Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

              We are still having significant problems with our LG washer. The latest issue involves the troubled spin cycle particularly when washing items in the Towel Setting. While trying to wash just 3 bath towels along with several smaller items, our washer will become unbalanced during the spin cycle subsequently causing our machine to stop operating! After having to stop, adjust, and rearrange items, the machine will resume the spin cycle only to have the washer once again cease normal operation requiring me to repeat the process of pulling out these wet items. As I indicated previously, I believe this chronic balance problem is due to a defective LG software issue rendering our washer unsuitable for the ordinary purpose for which it was sold to us. This LG washer is defective. We cannot operate the washer for which it was intended. â€"James McChesney Ranson
