    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.

    WE have had the washer for five months, and we are very dissapointed. We like all the features that are present and bought our LG off of the reviews. We are very dissapointed with the lint and wrinkled clothes left behind on the clothes, we have tried everything to alleviate the problem.

        Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

        After about 2 years, my wife and I notice some rust appear around where the bleach dispencer is. Looking closer, I notice that the paint is starting to bubble up in different areas of the washing machine. I was told that rust is not covered under warranty. Other than the rust, it runs good.

        Caveat emptor

        By Caveat emptor

        from Pensacola, FL, USA

        Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

        Purchased this washer over two years ago. Worked like it should but noticed it had a terrible odor frequently so ran the clean cycle frequently. It always got an "unbalanced" error when cleaning it and took constant monitoring and several tries to complete. Frequently got the “unbalanced� error when running loads of all sizes. Got a recall notice for a software update to fix the problem and after doing so, made it even worse. Just finished a load that took over two hours to complete. Researching this problem, have read hundreds of similar complaints, looks like a long, unnecessary fight to try to get it fixed or replaced. Caveat emptor.

        Recall derates the machine

            Comments about LG White Top Load Washer:

            Interesting that you do not see the LG reviews on their site that are on many other related to the recall and the effects on their washing machine. I wonder if mine will get posted. Our machine appeared to work fine before the recall but we did not run the real high speed rinse and we were quite careful with it. Since they "upgraded" the software, we now experience UE errors and the machine is constantly going out of balance and into infinite loops on the cycles. Cycle times also increase but about 30%. You need to babysit the machine to make sure it will finish a load. You definitely cannot leave the house with it running.

                    I've had my LG washer for several months and so far I love it! I purposely selected a top load HE washer because I've heard that front load washers can collect water in the door and start to get funky. Plus I never have to bend down to load it. Even though it's a top loader, it is still beautiful, and the capacity is awesome!

                        I am very disappointed that my 1 1/2year old machine is rusting around the bleach dispenser. It runs fine but the body is going to fall apart around it. I have been very careful to leave the lid open and dry it after use. I like that I can wash large items, comforters etc.but I feel the machine will not last. I would not recommend this product.

                            I love this washer! It has a huge capacity and for a family of 5 it is wonderful. It get's everything really clean and is whisper quiet! It's also more gentle on clothes than the washer with the agitator. I love all the different features and settings. It actually makes laundry fun!

                                This is the worst washer I've ever owned. There is not enough water when washing and you can't control the water amount. It doesn't even cover the cothes. It is CONSTANTLY out of balance and if you aren't in the room the entire time it will fill up with water to try and balance itself out which runs your bill up even higher. You cannot get hot water in half the selections. Very unhappy with this washer!!! The dryer is great but stay away fromt he washer.

                                  Love this machine - using the tide pods in it - took me a while to figure out that you just throw the pods in the machine & not try to put them in the liquid detergent tray.....duh.....No problems so far but love the capacity! And are old machine used to "walk around" but not this - very steady.
