All I can say is that this LG washer is great! It's a no frills washer if you do your research. This model has all the added features you could want for your money. It took us months of searching for the right washer, we looked at several of the top brands and compared them all. This LG model always was on top and the reviews were great, and now we know why. It's super quiet, economical, easy to use, and you can have custom settings too. Build quality is top notch, stainless steel tub, not a mix of plastic and stainless like other competitors charging more $$$. Also, the warranty on this model is awesome, just cannot beat it. Most definitely a best buy, you cannot go wrong with this purchase. Since getting ours, we just love this machine!

Before purchasing this washer we bought an LG dryer, which we love. Based on our experience with other LG products and many positive reviews of this washer, we went with this one. What a disappointment it has been. The first couple of times the UE signal came on, I figured it was my fault. I simply redistributed the clothes and pushed start again. Well, after dozens of times doing this, too many hours wasted waiting on a single load of laundry, countless gallons of water wasted as the machine tries to re-balance itself and numerous articles of clothing destroyed during the never ending cycles...I can say that I DESPISE this machine and am completely turned off from LG products. I have four children and do not have the time or resources for the nonsense that this machine consumes. A load that should take an hour can take up to a whole day as the machine continues to add more minutes and water repeatedly and then shuts itself down. Annoying does not begin to describe this machine. Clothes that have gone in on the delicate cycle have come out misshapen and stretched out and still soaking wet. What is the point of the cycle? The tub clean cycle is a joke. It takes all day because the machine continues to say it is unbalanced. What could possibly be unbalanced- there aren't even clothes in it during the tub clean cycle!!! Yet it continues to refill with water and then shut down as the UE code comes on over and over. By no means is it energy saving with the amount of time and water it spends on a single load. And the bleach cup? I have NEVER ruined clothes with bleach until I had this washer. I don't know if the cup doesn't empty completely or if it doesn't run the bleach through all of the way elsewhere in the machine but it is pretty much guaranteed that the next load will also have bleach in it whether intended or not. After numerous articles of clothing coming out with bleach spots during a cycle that I didn't add bleach to, I have had to stop using bleach. That is ridiculous in a household full of active kids. As a parent, I have taught my children to not use the word "hate" as it is often too strong to express how one truly feels beyond the moment of anger, but I will say that after months of frustration, irritation, and yes, anger- I HATE THIS MACHINE. I wouldn't recommend it at all. It was not inexpensive and for the price and LG name I certainly expected a better quality product. Or at least one that functioned properly without costing me time and money. We are done with LG.

          Purchased this washer and matching dryer about 6 weeks ago and the performance is much better than the old type. The units are high-efficiency with large load capacity and the washer is much quieter than any I have ever used. In our area the Elect Power Co. installed smart meters which allows me login and monitor our daily elect use. In the past I could always see laundry day but now it is no greater than any other day.

                          this washing machine is not that bad. I rated it a 4/5 because I do agree it does not get most stains out. I had to hand wash a few items to make clean. Majority of the washing time are very long. overall the machine is quiet when washing.

                              I HATE it! I would NOT buy it again. I fail to see how it is 'energy efficient" when it can take up to 1hour and 11 minutes to wash a load? You CAN NOT just put your clothes in the tub, you have to pack them around the sides in order for it to wash? It DOES not wash them clean! I WANT MY OLD ONE BACK! If I could I would give it back to you! I tell everyone NOT to buy one of these kind.

                              from Saint Louis, MO, USA

                              I've had this washer for a little over a year. It's an okay/decent product. There haven't been any mechanical issues so that's a plus, but the actual washing of my clothes isn't the best. Let me explain. I use to have the old school washing machine with the agitator. I then got a king bed and wanted a washing machine that would wash a king comforter. That's how I got this new washing machine. I'll give the large capacity an A+ but sadly there is a negative to this (no agitator) If you're washing normal, none stained clothes, then the machine works fine, I suppose. But if you have clothes with stains or any little mud spots, don't expect much. My husband is a landscaper and comes home with jeans that have mud and other stains. The washing machine will not get any of the stains out. I have to manually scrub the jeans in my kitchen sink with hot water. Maybe I expect too much. But going from the old school machine to this new one, I expect the new one to at least perform slightly better. It's worse! The old machine removed the stains. I'm a true believe the agitator is needed. I also get error messages about the weight being uneven. The wash will stop and I have to move the clothes around and "hope" the machine will work. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. One day I used the express cycle. I put a load in (normal load that I do all the time) and came back about 20 minutes later, there was an error and it was just sitting there. Error after error about the weight. I'm thinking if there was a real agitator this wouldn't have happened! My speedy cycle that was supposed to take 35 minutes took over an hour and I eventually just had to start the whole cycle over! I've also done lots of normal loads that came out just fine, but that is what is supposed to happen. I shouldn't be excited that my washing machine works, that's the machines job! I wouldn't not buy this machine again. It's not a bad product but I'm just not impressed. If my husband had it his way, he would throw it out now and go find our old washer we gave away for free! Oh and another thing, when I had my old machine, I could fill it with water, add clothes, let them soak, all while the lid was open. I don't think you can do this with the new machine. The lid needs to be closed for the cycle to start. Another annoying feature (or maybe I'm missing something)... This new machine is one those buys I just tell myself to deal with it because it is already paid for.... I will say the panel with the options for the cycles is nice looking and easy to use. It also lights up pretty. But again, I need clean clothes, not just a pretty looking machine...

                                  Washer has a large load capacity that is great for comforters and such. I have had it for a couple of months and it is a dream to use. Can't wait for my dryer to go so I can get its sister. I hope it continues to preform like this but time will tell.
