    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 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.

            I love everything about this washer. Have had it for over a year and no complaints. It is beautiful to look at, love the front control features-makes so easy to access. 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!

                    This washing machine is the best I have ever owned in the past 35 years. It is so easy to use and the clothes are very clean and do not have any rips in them like my previous machines would ruin my clothes.

                        This washer does not use enough water to get your load even wet! I am so tired of looking in to the washer at the rinse cycle and seeing totally dry clothes. I am not talking about after the spin, I am talking about the after the wash cycle and before the spin.. Don't buy it! What good is saving on water if the clothes don't even get wet. Very dissatisfied with this product!!! I have to baby it and trick it to make it think there are more clothes in the washer by adding wet clothes! Thumbs down!

                                Amazing how this machine uses just enough water to get clothes clean and wring them out almost dry. The only thing to me is the amount of plastic of the lid, etc. Chrome plated plastic does not impress me. Either the price should be cheaper for plastic or it should be chrome metal. I wish had got white instead. This color shows all dust.

I have only one issue. It's possible to change almost every option in a wash cycle, except one: the water level. I would like to be able to adjust this.

Clothes come out tangled and STILL WET!! The LG are the worst product I ever purchased VERY VERY expensive ...i SOOOOOO REGRET IT!!!!!!
