Only used for one load which was fine. A couple of things that may help people out reading negative reviews elsewhere: First off it is very deep, my wife is 5'7" and she could barley reach the bottom. Using a step stool which is fine. Make sure you LEVEL the washer perfectly prior to operating. This is a critical step in having balanced loads and spin cycles. Most of the negative reviews I read could be solved with leveling the wash correctly. Follow the instructions on how to level the machine. Make sure your load is evenly distributed in the drum before starting. This is very important and the load sensor will not fill with enough water or too much, if your load is on one side of the drum only. I know it sounds like common sense but I've read a lot of reviews which point to this. Other than those minor things the machine is very quiet and seems well engineered.

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.

      Just avoid

      Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

      Frankly the worst clothes washer that I have ever owned, if I could give it a '0' I would. People say don't overload it, other say don't under load it to avoid the dreaded ue. However, my experience is the ue over 50% of the time and where there is not a UE the load takes about 30 minutes long that it said at the beginning because it spends so much time trying to balance the load. Not a good washer.

              Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

              My machine is now 3+ years old, and still working beautifully. I've never had a problem because I sort my laundry, and like to take care of my clothes, washing them according to color and type. Hence, I've never overloaded the machine and, thankfully, because it's energy efficient and sensored, it knows not to use more water than it needs. After reading so many of these negative reviews, I am inclined to think that most of the unhappy customers are probably overloading their machines. My father in law was a washing machine repair man for years, and he's said that most issues with washing machines (then and now) are due to people overloading their washers. The unbalanced loads, the clothes that don't get clean -- all due to overloading.

                  When my previous washer, a front loader died I went shopping for a replacement. After researching many different washers, an appliance salesperson at a leading store said the only washer he could recommend was the LG and went on to explain why. Well, I followed his recommendation and I'm so happy I did. So far it has been everything a person could want in a washer, efficient, easy to use, quiet and really beautiful. So attractive that I almost wish my drier would die so I could justify buying the LG drier to match.
