    I previously wrote a review giving this washer a 3 out of 5 stars and have completely changed my mind. I would give it 0 stars if I could, because this washer has added nothing except dollars to my electric and water bills and increased my stress. As I write this review, I am currently going on 48 minutes for a 13 minute "spin only" cycle. Unless you have a pack of kids or run a laundry business DO NOT purchase this washer. It is NOT energy efficient, it wastes water and it's useless for small loads. The problem is the "true balance" technology. Whenever there is a slight issue with load balance, the "technology" adds water to help balance the load. I have two bath sheets in the wash set on the "spin only" cycle because they are soaking wet. The spin only cycle is an estimated 13 minutes. This load is taking almost an hour because it's too small. The machine keeps adding water to balance the load. This is where the non-environmental, water wasting issues come in. The point of "spin only" is to remove the water. The addition of water to balance is not only a waste, but defeats the purpose of SPIN ONLY. This washing machine is so inconvenient that I can not risk leaving the house to run errands or walk the dog until the machine has completed a load. The machine works fine when you fill it with as much laundry as possible, but when you need to wash a small amount (e.g. towels from drying off a dog) it's enough to drive you crazy. I would not recommend this product to anyone unless you have a lot of young kids, run a daycare or hospice of sorts. I am seriously debating LG as a choice for anything because of this product.

    Wish I still had a top loader with agitator

    By Anonymous

    Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

    Clothes do not get clean, takes forever and I have to fool it with adding a bucket of water to actually get the clothes clean. I have had it for about six months and wish I would have never purchased it, if I could trade for the old technology, I would do it in a heartbeat.

        We love this machine, the features are unbelievable! From the delay wash setting to the speed wash. It even has a cycle to clean itself to get rid of built up residue! And the cold wash cycle which washing in cold but thinks and runs as warm to save $$$$ & water!! I will never purchase any other brand, and the dryer is just as amazing!

            We are loving this new washer. It cleans very well and fast. I like the front controls. The only issue is that at 5 feet 2 inches I cannot reach the bottom and have to use a step stool to get all the wash out.

                    This washer is replacing a front load machine that literally lost its bearings. I hated bending over to dig the clothes out of the front loader. This LG product is much more comfortable to operate, does a fine job, and is very quiet. I'm very satisfied with it.

                    Takes too long to wash and unbalances too often

                    By unhappyinok

                    from Oklahoma, USA

                    Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

                    1. I find it takes anywhere between 1 hour 15 minutes to 2 hours to do a load of wash. I feel this is way to long. 2. The washer become unbalanced so often that when the machine is in the rinse and spin cycle I have to babysit the machine. I do not have time to stand over the machine to assist it. 3. I often feel that some of my clothes are still dry so I'm not sure how clean it gets them. 4. I wish I could take it back to the store and get something different. My stress level would go way down. 5. Also, our water bill went up in cost because of the water being added to the unbalanced load. Therefore it is not efficient. 6. I do NOT recommend buying this washer.

                        I love this washer. There is a learning curve but it's worth the initial frustration. I would give it 5 stars across the board if it performs for 10 - 15 years without breaking down.

                            This machine does everything well except the spin cycle. The already long cycles will take two hours, three rinse cycles, and you'll ultimately end up with the "UE" message and an incomplete cycle. Then you'll fight to find the right balance for about an hour just to spin the clothes dry. It's the most frustrating thing I've ever experienced. And to think Consumer Reports rated this unit a best buy at its price point. Just goes to show you. FYI, I've had it for over a year.
