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.

      Can finally wash my comforters without going to a commercial laundry. Quiet, simple to use, lots of cycle options. Only drawback is the depth of the tub as only being 5'4" I need to get on my tippy toes to reach the bottom for small items.

      Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

      After less than a year had to have a new motherboard installed (think goodness still under warranty). Now less than 2 years with the new motherboard and am having the same issues. Load runs for hours, rebalances non stop and shows UE code all of the time. Would never buy an LG washer again!

          Comments about LG White Top Loading Washer:

          I recently purchased the LG Top load washer and dry bundle. I am very impressed with both items. Very quiet, love the load sensor on the washer and ease of use. Great for a two person household. The only reason that I only gave it 4 stars is that I have only had the appliances for a few days.

                      I purchased another washer before the LG, what a mistake. I was afraid to use it. It was very noisy and there always seemed to be a problem with the balancing of the clothes in the spin cycle. The store exchanged the machine for the LG and I am very happy that they did. My new machine is a pleasure to use.

                              This is my first HE washer. I had a conventional washer for 17 years that finally gave up. I cannot believe the capacity of this one and how clean it gets everything. All the while doing it with less water and detergent. Highly recommend this washer
