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.

      Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

      This washer is FANTASTIC! At first I was intimidated by the change from my old washer. So many settings.... so little time! LOL. I was used to just looking at it, moving a few dials and walking away. With this model I actually had to read the book but it was well worth the short time it took to review the information and get started. I must say I was impressed. Once you get acquainted. its easy to pick the settings you want, including types of articles being washed; soaks, extra rinse, and other options were easy to set up. The sensor settles and levels your wash on its own. I like the extra wash time and it gets my clothes cleaner than clean with no stains left over. Rinse cycle is thorough and spin cycle leaves your loads "dry/wet" so the dryer doesn't have to take so long. And that "done" chime is "music to my ears!" Try it.... you'll like it too! One thing I would mention: The washer basin is large and deep. I am tall #5'8"# so to me it didn't matter. But for someone who is of short stature, it might be difficult to reach to the bottom of the basin to retrieve your load. Try to reach the bottom of the basin when you are viewing this washer in the store to be sure its right for you.

          The wash tub is so large I can barely fill it(which is great). It washes my clothes a lot better than my old washer. It looks great! and the technology is great. I am one pleased customer and would recommend this washer to anyone who needs a great washer. Thank You LG!

              Do not buy this machine if you or your spouse are under 5'7" tall, you'll struggle to reach clothes at base of the bowl. Machine performs as expected, majority of all loads we do are cold water colors, 35-38 minute cycle and cleans great. We have had to pull the power plug twice in first 6 months to reset the washer. Bought this as a matching pair, dryer came with a squeak literally first week, repair guy fixed it but left us with a vibrating machine (just scheduled 2nd appt to fix that - tainted our overall perspective of the value of the purchase.

              Like everybody does, I reviewed this product before purchasing. I can say it definitely is worth the money. Clothes come out almost dry after the spin cycle. My clothes are coming out very soft as well. Clothes are not fading as fast either. It's a smart purchase.

                  This top loader is large enough for all my needs. The large drum fits bedding easily. No more sore back from bending over to unload a front loader. Love all the cycle choices! The little tune it plays at cycle end is so much better than that annoying buzz! The only problem I have is that I don't get to use it much because my husband likes our new washer more than I do!

                      This washer is very quiet. Its spin cycle is fast and leaves the cloths almost dry so that the drying time is reduced. The spin cycle has less bounce and spins evenly. Gets cloths very clean and fresh smelling.

                          This is only my second washer/dryer set (in 14 years). I absolutely love these two machines. My first fancy, high tech. purchase. Very modern looking. The capacity of the washer is incredible. It is extremely quiet. It makes the sweetest chime sound when finished. It has a wide variety of settings. I just bought a brand new house, just built. I can honestly say of all the new items I have now, the washer and dryer are by far my favorite. You will not be disappointed! I love doing laundry now!!

                              We like the various cycle options and the fact that it requires much less water than our prior washer. We have had some problems with the computer controls and will need a technician to look at it again.
