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.

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.

      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.

              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.
