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!

1. Bought this machine as it was touted as being very reliable and saved on water 2. The first time I had issues was within a month after the original purchase. It did not load balance correctly and it did not put sufficient water in the machine to wash the clothes properly. Clothing was coming out of the machine with the soap scum still in the clothes. Yes I did use the recommended detergent. At times the clothes were coming out dry in spots that water had never reached. I was advised by the Tech not to put small loads into the machine, however that is not always possible. When did the consumer have to start accommodating the washing machine, which is suppose to be accommodating me. There are times when light weight loads are necessary, such as with a large load of lingerie which does not weigh very much. 3. We were then away for 8 months as this is our winter home. The machine was run through a cycle every 2 weeks by our house sitters to keep everything running, and to prevent drying out of the hoses etc. 4. When we got back to Arizona, I did 4 loads and then the machine “locked could not be opened and stopped with a load of wet clothes in the machine. It has now been over 2 weeks and it is still not working. We have had 2 repair people out, and the parts the original person brought did not fix the problem. I was told by the second repair person that it could be another 10 days - 2 weeks before this next part is delivered and installed. 6. Before my year warranty is expired, I want my money back. 7. It is my opinion that the electronics that are being put into these machines are too complicated and easily broken. It takes too long to deliver replacement parts. We the consumers are paying a price and while it may have started out as a reasonably priced washer the ROI for LG is going down continually.......... as is my satisfaction with LG.

    Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

    With my laundry room just off my family room, I was looking for a washer that was more quiet than my old one. Obviously, I couldn't get a real-life demonstration anywhere so i had to rely on reviews and manufacturer specifications. I picked the right machine. The only time I hear this washer is when it rears up to a high-speed spin. It sounds like a very quiet jet taking off. And it really does spin! No wonder my dryer is so efficient now - the clothes are mostly dry right out of the washer.
    I also wanted to be able to add an article, if necessary, after the cycle begins, and this machine allows you to "Pause" the cycle and do that. Happy with the very large capacity and yet I don't feel I'm wasting energy or water on a small load.
    I purchased the top-loading washer, but I feel it does everything the front loaders do at considerably less cost. It looks the same inside (no knuckle- scraping center agitator;direct drive motor) and it's much easier for me to stand up and reach down for the items than to bend over and reach in for them. I'm 70 years old.
    I love my choice of this washer and matching dryer.

            I have loved this washer ever since we bought it 2 months ago. You must read the manual to understand how to use it because it is different from the old agitator washers. It holds an unbelievable amount of items, and I've felt everything gets very clean. There are only 2 people in our house since our children are grown, and I have had no problems with small loads. I have been able to combine loads to cut down on the number of weekly loads. I am average height(5'4") and have no problem reaching the bottom like some reviews I have read. I can wash king sheets and several towels at one time. I have had no problem with items getting tangled. You need to understand the cycles and choose the right one for your items plus you can change the water temperature and spin speeds if you want for the cycle you have chosen. I highly recommend this washer.

                The settings I use the most are normal and delicate. We do lots medium sized loads with the occasional bulky load. Great to be able to fit a queen size comforter in the washer. I only 4 starred the value because this is one of the more expensive models. You are paying for the extra capacity.

                    This machine does not leave my clothes smelling or feeling clean, just very wrinkled, I have had to add water to a load because its "smart sensor" couldn't even get all the clothes wet. The cycles are so long the clothes should be cleaner. I bought this washer because of the positive reviews I had read, but I am very unhappy with it.

                    Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

                    I have owned this washer (and the matching dryer which works great) for over 3 months. For washing large loads of lightly soiled clothes it works great. However, I wash cloth diapers and there is no option for a prolonged soak (cannot soak for >30 minutes) and the stain care cycle (which was recommended by the repairman for its agitation) doesn't allow for a hot wash. Many of the cycles are preset and cannot be changed or will only allow some changes. For a moderately priced washer I expected more options to customize my wash. In the end, most of my heavily soiled items get clean, but it takes a really long time (>3 hours for diapers) to get clean.

                            I have been using this particular washer for one year now. I agree with most people that it's difficult for short people like me to reach the bottom. However, it fits very large loads. The clothes come out pretty clean. I must say that HE washers cannot be compared to old fashion washers (fill to the top with water). But, there are few options the machine has that helps to get clothes very clean. It took me sometime to figure that out. After trying a variety of different settings, I was able to figure out how to get my clothes cleaner. The only issue I have with this washer is the rust developing around the bleach tray. I would have to think it's a design flaw especially since I rarely use bleach.

                                I like the size and ease of use. That it for this washer. Every load has to be restarted at least 3 times. Even then it might not complete a cycle. Even with nothing in it. Now the washer smells like mold is growing in it. Because it can't get all the water out.
