This is the best washer I have ever owned (and I am old enough to have owned MANY). I wanted a top loader again because I was very unhappy with the performance of front loaders. It is fascinating to watch how it "senses" the load and programs itself accordingly after you have applied your chosen settings. It has so many choices and useful features, yet it is very easy to use and custom set for your particular load of laundry. It is very efficient and does an excellent job of actually cleaning well. I even like the cheerful little "song" it plays when starting and stopping...it makes me smile. I especially love the large capacity and the settings for bedding because I have 4 dogs and am constantly washing lots of blankets/sheets/dog beds. It is, as I said, the best washer I have ever owned...and I would recommend it to anyone...in a heartbeat!

ALTHOUGH THIS WASHER APPEARS TO BE WELL BUILT IT DOES NOT WASH CLOTHES VERY WELL. THERE IS NO AGITATION OR TUMBLING/TURNOVER THAT IS ESSENTIAL TO THE WASHING PROCESS. THERE IS NO AGITATOR TO MOVE THE CLOTHES AND IT DOES NOT HAVE THE LOBES OF A FRONT LOAD WASHER EITHER. THE WASH BASKET TURNS AND THE CLOTHES TURN IN UNISON WITH IT CREATING A SWIRLING ACTION AND IT JUST DOESN'T GET THE JOB DONE. FURTHERMORE, THE WASH BASKET ONLY FILLS LESS THAN 1/4 OF THE WAY LEAVING A FULL LOAD OF CLOTHES FOR THE MOST PART ABOVE THE WATER LINE SO THEY DON'T GET WASHED. I END UP ADDING WATER USING A GARDEN HOSE EACH TIME I DO A LOAD OF LAUNDRY TO COMPENSATE FOR THE LACK OF WATER AND AS A RESULT MORE DETERGENT IS NEEDED.

Comments about LG Ultra Large Capacity Graphite Steel Top Loading Washer:
Purchased another brand and after a year had to replace it. Decided on this washer because of steam option. I noticed right away that clothes were cleaner and when I used the sanitizer cycle items were clean and fluffy not stiff as other brand. Cycles take a little bit longer, maybe 10 minutes or so but I would rather compromise that than clean. Also after spin cycle load has less water in them which translates to shorter dryer time. I have 3 active kids and do daycare so a good washer is important.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wont spin. Out of balance on every load
Look up the reviews on other sites. All the LG top load washer stuggle with load balance issues spinning out water. It will take you 4 hours to complete a load. You have to babysit these hunks of junk. Better off buying a rock and beating the water out ot would take less time
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
LOVE This Washer
from North Carolina, United States
I bought this washer right before Christmas so I've had it a month now. I've never owned a HE washer and was very skeptical about purchasing 1 due to all the horrible reviews I've seen such as long wash time, clothes don't get clean due to water levels. But, after researching and reading reviews on everything, I decided this was the one I'd try even though it had a lot less reviews than most, they were good reviews. I absolutely love it! It's super quiet compared to my old (non HE) washer as well as holds much more. The wash times are not long which is what I heard about many others. There are settings that will wash a long time, but just normal laundry is 56 minutes! It tells you how long the load is on the front panel and I love you can change water temp, spin speed, normal soiled to heavy soiled, softener or no softener. Whatever your preference, you have a choice! The panel is digital, but super easy to use! You cannot go wrong with this washer!
Everything about it is wonderful

Best machine I have ever owned! You can not go wrong when you purchase this washer/dryer!
The worst washer!
from California, United States
Don't buy this to wash your clothes! Go for this only if you want your laundry room to look nice. It doesn't even remove tooth paste stains. Waste of money. Totally disappointed! I'll try to get refund for this. LG should discontinue this model.

I bought this model about a month ago, this is overfilling the tub. I have requested LG service they are scheduled to visit next week.

While you can wash in one load what normally requires two loads, the washing action itself is abysmal. The "washer" should be called a "spinner"; that's about all it does.
Great feature and wash options!

I bought this washer a month ago to replace my front load washing machine. I am so happy with this machine! Love it!
