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.

      Used agitator washers forever, last one lasted 15 yrs, decided to replace with this washer. Regret this purchase. Washer constantly off balance, followed all directions to no avail. Clothes wrapped around each other at end of cycle. Shirt sleeves are becoming stretched out. Clothes so tightly wrapped have a difficult time even attempting to unravel before pulling out. Way too long to finish a load. Do not recommend.

      Horrible Machine!

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      This is the worst purchase I have ever made. The washer starts counting down the time remaining, does numerous rinse cycles, and the time goes up, then goes back down, then goes back up. I've already had the mother board replaced once and now it's doing it again. Even when I set it on spin cycle only it spins for 5 minutes then starts filling with water! This is "energy efficient" machine is costing me more money than its worth!!!

          Update ; After 3 years

          By 

          from Woodbridge, VA, United States

          Now, the washer - WT4870CW sounds like an old steam train. It is loud and noisy. It takes about 5 hours to complete a cycle of washing. It wasting water and re-starting many times. It is full of trouble now. I will advise anyone who buys this washer to get an extended warranty from the store. It is a matter of time that you will regret buying this washer. Where are all the good and long lasting washers our parents used to have? Now , there is no washer that is better and reliable.

          the worst washer I have had in 50 years

          By 

          from Undisclosed

          I bought my washer in Aug. 2013 Had problems with uneven loads constantly. After research I discovered there was a recall on the main board and had it replaced in March 2015. Low and behold the problems are back with more new ones. This washer does not clean clothes, takes hours to complete a cycle and uses a lot of water. I would not recommend buying this machine

            Best Uses

              I have had this washing machine for over 2 years and every time I use it I am so glad I bought it. It has a large capacity and it is great for washing blankets and huge loads of clothes but it works just as well with small loads. I don't have a problem with "uneven loads" since after I load the clothes in the washer I reach in and "fluff" them before I start the washer. I just reach underneath and pick them up a little to even them out. The clothes always come out nice and clean. The only down side is that it is not good for waterproof mattress covers as they may rip. After this happened to me once I had some success washing them in a laundry bag on low spin. The deep drum which makes it possible to do the large loads may make it difficult for someone shorter than me at 5'3" to reach the bottom. For me it is not an issue. It is easy to use, looks great, and runs reliably with no problems.

                      I purchased this washer on 11/5/2013 and it has been two years now. I used to get the code UE, but then I realized I was an idiot and packed everything to the top and had an offset load. You can't throw everything and the kitchen sink in there and except it to be balance. Yes it is technology and it does have a load sensor, but from my experience of loading hovercraft and ships in the Navy. You have to equal the balance and make sure just like an old type of washer. You make sure the load is correct. 641 reviews of 5 stars vs 40 reviews at 1 star. After reading all these reviews, this piece of equipment is too engineered for most of you that do not know how to use technology and load a washer. That is all.
