    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:

        I've had my washer for about a month and couldn't be more pleased. Clothes are clean and after drying are nearly wrinkle free. The energy efficient features mean we're using less water and electricity which is a bonus. This my 5th LG appliance purchase in the past three years and I can truly say I'm pleased with the quality and performance of everyone of them.

            The product is very good except it leaves the clothes all wrinkled. Don't know how to stop this. I did not have this problem with my other washer. I have tried lowering the spin cycle but that didn't help.

            Failed after 1 year

            By 

            from Inland Empire, CA

            Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

            I purchased by LG top load washer on 3/12/14 and on 3/25/15 the washer will not drain. I had the service tech (the store where I purchased, offered a maintenance agreement) out and it was determined it was the main circuit board. I am very disappointed with the dependability of this washer. My previous washer (different manufacturer) worked for 10 years without a problem. I truly hope this is not an indication of the reliability of this product. But I do like the features of this washer.

                I am a person who researches every thing I purchase. There were many post about being out of balance and hard to operate. It's been 2 months and I never had any problems with anything. It uses less laundry detergent and if you follow the directions on how to load the machine, you should be ok. I love the glass top. The first few times I found myself watching the cycles run. So, don't be scared of this machine. It saves money and cleans the clothes better than my 7 year old machine I had before. Very pleased with my purchase.

                I do not like the washer. The clothes do not come clean even when you use the heavy soiled option. I think an agitator would do this washer a lot of good.

                    This washer saves money by using less water and detergent. It is user friendly because the digital display is easy to use. It is so quiet that we can sleep in the next room while it is running. I even love the color - gray - not the plain, ordinary white.

                        I bought this to replace our old washer which died (and purchased the matching dryer). I am saving $50-100 per month in water and electric so it will pay for itself in a year or so. I love everything about this washer. It has a great capacity and I love the controls on the front. It works great even with small loads. I use Tide Coldwash with the ColdWater feature and my clothes come out great. The Tub Clean option is wonderful as well. It is so quiet, we can't hear it in the next room.

No agitator means much more room. It runs quietly, and does wonderful job on cleaning clothes. My kids love the song it sings when load is finished.

                                I've only had this washer for a few months but so far, all is well! I love the design of it, with the controls in the front - the lack of a raised-back control panel gives me room for an extra storage shelf in my laundry room, and who doesn't need more storage? My clothes come out clean and very dry, and the washer is very quiet. There are lots of features to choose from and it's pretty easy to customize each laundry load. And the fold-down partition on the lid is very helpful - I didn't know that HE washers needed to vent a bit between washloads, so I'm certainly glad that I have this feature on the washer! I"m still working on how to add laundry additives - e.g., powdered bleach and fabric softener. The manual's instructions in this respect are a bit vague - but I'm sure that I'll be able to figure this out eventually. All in all, this is a very good washing machine - it's a wave of the future, and I have no regrets in purchasing it. And I'm looking forward to many happy laundering days with it!
