    I have owned this machine for 7-8 mos. I have read hundreds of reviews on many machines and finally decided on this one. I am so happy I did!! Very easy to get the hang of all the buttons and settings. It holds alot of dirty clothes, it fills the tub with plenty of water, (read some reviews about not enough water in tub) my machine fills with water, I don't over stuff the tub which you never should if you want clean clothes. Everything comes out very clean without the agitator, some clothes which had old stains came out clean again. Occasionally clothes will become wrapped around each other. Yes, you need to take your time and shake clothes out before placing in dryer. They do spin at a high rate of speed and get wrinkly when taking them out, but if you shake them out before placing in dryer you should be ok. I also use the medium setting for spin and that helps alot with not many wrinkles after drying. You can't place blankets and shirts/jeans together as it can become unbalanced as I did once. But then again, I didn't use the bulky setting which could have been the problem. Yes, I washed my king comforter alone in this, no problem.You will love this machine. I researched for months and was so hesitant once I decided on this one, almost worried sick as this appliance gets a real workout. I am so happy with my purchase. I also leave my lid open to dry out any water left anywhere I can't see, I also lift the detergent compartment out and drain water out of it or it can become slimy. I have NOT used any cleaning solution tabs they say to use as there is no odor. Again I can leave my lid open. If I have to give a Con about something it would be: Your not suppose to wash anything waterproof, mattress covers, bath mats, winter gear etc. yes disappointed but definately no deal breaker, and the top of machine gets fingerprints. I hope this helps someone.

    I was taken in by all the hype, positive reviews, and salesman's pitch. The "Wave Force" action sounds fantastic, and the machine is a marvel to look at with its excellently crafted finish and flashy lights on the console, but when it comes to old fashioned performance it is a complete loser. The machine is designed to use little or no hot water. According to the technical information that I unfortunately found only after I had purchased the machine, the manufacturer says that "warm" is 90 degrees or so. I was brought up to believe that warm meant somewhat greater that body temperature, like 105 to 115 degree water one uses to activate yeast, not 10 degrees below body temperature. You can try to get around this by starting out on the sanitary cycle, but then the water saving feature defeats your efforts. It normally will not put enough water in to get the cloths completely wet. If you use the water plus feature to add water after the initial fill, it will use only cold water, so if you fill the tub to a decent level it will be cold. If you are a quilter and like to soak fabric in the washer to dissolve water soluble stabilizer or dissolvable thread, you cannot do it in this washer unless you unplug it after filling the tub because after 8 minutes of inactivity the machine insists on draining the tub. I have no idea what this "feature" is for but it is infuriating. I have yet to see any Wave Force cascading water action, even though I watched a complete wash cycle. The machine will occasionally stop the agitator action and start slowly spinning the tub, but no water ever cascades over the top to be forced through the clothes by centrifugal force as the advertisement would have you believe. I have not been able to wash a load of towels without having to be there to redistribute the clothes when it goes off balance, which us usually several times in the cycle. Finally ther is the "smell" that develops in the washer after a few weeks of use, like it is growing its own culture of bacteria or mold. I would gladly pay to have this machine hauled away if I could have my old machine back. My recommendation is to buy a non-HE washer while there are still some left and keep it in good condition.

        I love how easy it is to use. The features and settings are perfect for any use. It is a little louder than expected. It is on the more expensive side but it is worth every penny.

            Comments about LG Ultra Large Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

            Purchased the Washer and Dryer together and have loved the decision since. It takes me nearly half the amount of time to do laundry and my clothes come out very clean. I was hesitant about having no agitator in the washer and realized shortly after my first wash that these were very efficient at getting the job done. I think he bad reviews on this page are silly most complaints that I have read looks like they did not read the directions on the correct settings for their loads. This washer spins fast enough to virtually dry the clothes so much that dryer times are half as long. Great product!

                Comments about LG Ultra Large Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

                I am sorry to say that this machine is very poor. We have had it now for 2 months, and have tried multiple wash loads of various sizes and fabrics and various settings. Unfortunately, it seems EVERY time, we do not have a full 3/4 + tank of very common clothes, it alarms UE on EVERY spin cycle. The spin cycle seems to be over sensitive no matter what you are trying to wash- i.e. towels, kids load, delicate, blanket, etc. I bought it because of the large capacity, with the option to be able to wash blankets, however, any other wash load, it does not like. As well, I do not find that it gets the clothes as clean as a front load or other style machines. I am sure, LG will need to fix this issue in the software and change the sensitivity of the spin cycle- when they do, it will be a nice washer I am sure, but right now, I would be cautious of purchasing.

                    Purchased 2 previous top load machines with similar features and didn't like either of them.... so retuned both. When the last be returned the delivery man suggested that I look into LG units. So I found an open box discounted unit and so I purchased this one. Love the way it works...have not had any mechanical problems with unit nor the way it cleans. If you read the instructions on washing ..the unit does a great job...now off to get the dryer.

The capacity is unbelievable and our clothes are clean and stay new looking- even sweaters! Strongly suggest you try this washer.

                                I have owned this washer since early November 2013. Love the machine. Just took a long time to get to me. Luckily I was not in a hurry as we ordered in plenty of time for it to arrive at my new house when completed. Did not happen. Just beware and order in plenty of time to make sure you have it when you need it. Otherwise I am extremely pleased with the machine. Love the way it looks and works.

                                    I've been very impressed with this washer so far. The different washing options makes it easy to use efficiently. I was worried about not having an agitator, however my clothes are just as clean without one (the size is also a big plus as well). Then to top it off, it looks great. Keep up the good work LG!

                                    My housekeeper and I feel that the water level does not get high enough and the water temperature is not adequate for getting the clothes super clean. We do not believe the clothes come out as clean as the Maytag did.

                                        I was excited to get a nice new high quality washer and dryer from LG and because I spent about 2x more than a regular washer dryer I expected to not have any problems. First the paint corroded around the area where you put bleach into the washer.... ok bleach is corrosive, feel like for the price that this should not have happened. Not covered under warranty. Second I notice holes in my sheets, on the pant legs of my sweats, etc. I don't trust this machine to wash my clothes without ripping them. This does not happen all the time but does happen on occasion. If I had to do it all over again I would get a basic washing machine with no bells or whistles. Keep it simple..... The matching dryer has had problems with the buttons not working, replaced the buttons once under warranty. Again, get something simple with turning knob, not a computerized touch button... not worth the headaches.
