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.

worst appliance I've ever purchased

By 

from Dundee, MI, United States

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

learn to love your error codes because you'll see them a LOT! UE, OE?, FE????? Large capacity washer that you can only was a few garments at a time so ours is running pretty much all day long. You can put two dishrags in there and you'll get an unbalanced load. Horrible

Avoid at all costs

By 

from Delaware Ohio

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

This is definitely NOT an efficient washing machine and I'm frustrated every time laundry needs washed. It errors out every single load. I load the washer according to the manual and have followed the troubleshooting information provided to address the errors. Out of desperation I contacted the home improvement store (still under warranty). The repairman ran diagnostics on the machine and said it's "working according to the manufacturer's specifications" and was informed there was noting that could be done. It is very annoying that it takes an entire afternoon (several hours) to just get a load to finish...only to then carry the very heavy load in 2 separate laundry baskets to hang the clothes on the clothesline. The load I hung up today was dripping wet because the washer doesn't effectively spin out the excess water. If I could assign a negative score to this washer I would.

2015 LG top load washer review

By 

from USA

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

had 3 machines in 49 years - with agitators - ALL GE's - never an issue (besides getting loud after 20 yrs or so). Purchased the LG top loader in 2015, we have yet to have a clean load of laundry. Same household, less people (empty nest). Was fooled by the "noise reduction", although it plays a song before and after the hour and a half session. I did a test with a lint filled towel folded in a square, came out in same shape, llnt included. Now after going to laundromat for blankets, etc., i remember how real machines and clean laundry used to be. BTW, not just complaining - will find out about possible repairs, maybe i have a dud. Buyer beware.

JUNK

By 

from South Dakota

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

If I could give this washer a negative I would. It is impossible to finish a load of wash. Always out of balance, even on an empty cycle. Keeps adding water and time, then it stops with an error. We have to let it stop, turn off water, do a spin only cycle until it errors out. Then put very wet clothes in the dryer. Avoid at all costs.

By 

from Nashville, TN, United States

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

This washer is horrible. STAY FAR AWAY. We spend hours upon hours just trying to get ONE load of laundry done. It continuously runs water, pops up the UE error message, and runs for hours on end without draining. I am extremely disappointed in this product and would strongly recommend NOT buying it. As a mom with an infant I do not have time to spend all day on one load of laundry.

Very disappointed - I'm in "UE" pergatory!

By 

from Denver, CO, United States

Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

I actually purchased this washer in 2013. I read the user manual and understood that you had to be careful to avoid uneven loads, and for the first two years it wasn't much of an issue. It would only go through its ridiculous redistribution process when it was truly uneven. But starting about a year ago, it is a constant battle. Anything less that half a load, regardless of settings, sends into its "uneven" marathon. It will take hours, waste a ton of water and then eventually shut off and flash UE. Efficient it is NOT. It is the most frustrating appliance I have ever owned. When I open the lid, it's not even uneven! I redistribute it by hand, try starting it back up on just "rinse and spin" or just "spin", and then say a prayer to the appliance gods that maybe, just maybe this time it will work. It is a waste of my time, water, electricity and money!

      Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

      Continually shows Uneven no matter what type of load. I have to stand guard over the machine to manually re-balance so that it does not continually fill back up with water and restart. Wastes so much water! We have tried leveling and vibration pads with no success. I will never buy another LG product again.

              i use my washer two to three times a week and with the large capacity the number of loads is reduced I like the fact that if i need a small load it is load sensing and will adjust the waer level on its own.

                  Very hard getting used to. No agitator, long wash times, etc. Still seems like clothes don't clean quite like an "agitator" machine. However, the functions and ease of use are very good. Now OK after adjusting to it.
