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.

Wrong efficiency ideas

By 

from Naperville, IL, United States

Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

The efficiency seems come with using less water. But in reality, it does not wash the clothes clean enough. Whenever, we put extra water to make sure clothes are soak rather than the factory settings, it is ok. By doing that, it does not save our budget. We are very disappointed by our purchase. We are not sure if all the so-called efficient top loaders are like this. But we suggest users to avoid "efficient" top-loaders by ANY manufacturer

Worst ever. Non-agitators a dying fad.

      Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

      Cannot use fill water to rinse fingers, stains, add soap, won’t fill without locking lid. Every load starts with same unnecessary, lengthy spin procedure. Same nonsense throughout wash cycles wastes enormous time. Cycles dominated by spinning adjustments to mix water, unravel clothes, little washing. Cannot wash the large items you got the extra capacity (and no agitator) for. Can’t turn them over, can’t agitate the top. Doesn’t wet all clothes by end of wash. Water too low, every setting except Bulky. Pre-programmed selections = no flexibility. Drains after one hour, cannot soak overnight. Wastes loads of time doing nothing, turning slowly, not washing, not draining (not working properly?) Constantly stops for unbalance code, even with 2 socks. Never worked well past first month. Repair man says that’s the way they work, fixed nothing. Bulky setting fills to top, most useful for washing, but wastes water. NOT HE in any way. Cannot handle pillows. Goes out of balance easier than agitators. Speed wash says 35 min, but only agitates for 2, actually lasts 1 hour. Timers don’t count the extra hour adjusting, filling. Delicate fill too low, destructive. Twists every load. Zero improvement over agitators, for ANY reason, WAY less efficient, less able. Too deep to reach bottom on toes. Never sprays or sprinkles at top, as advertised.

      Bad sensor just like the dryer

      By 

      from savannah, tn

      Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

      I bought this washer about a year ago. I wanted a larger capacity washer. The sensor technology on this item does not work. The water never fills up enough to sufficiently wash the clothes. I frequently the "bulk bedding option" to get enough water in the washer. I have tried starting and stopping the washer to see if I could fool it to provide more water. Can't seem to make it work! This is particularly frustrating when attempting to wash a small load. Also the washer spinning shakes the entire laundry room.

              I have had this washer for about 45 days now (Rent-a-Center). Everything seems to work great along the lines of very quiet, clothes come out clean, and huge inside however the most frustrating thing is I have done over 50 loads of laundry and I think maybe 3 have completed from start to finish. All the other ones I have to constantly redistribuite the clothing (multiple times) over the course of a wash. The UE pops up all the time. I tried small loads, large loads, shirts only, pants only, doesn't matter. Thankfully it's from rent-a-center and I can get a different one but I feel sorry for those of you who purchased it outright. Sooooo frustrating.

                  We have had this washer for several months now and find it to be the best washer we have ever owned (nothing even close). Does a great job cleaning the clothes while not being hard on them. Even a tissue left in the clothes will come out clean an undamaged. This machine is a great buy.

                  I have had this machine for a year. No matter how I arrange the clothing, it stops multiple times during cycle due to 'imbalance'. I am considering purchasing a new washer due to pure frustration. Extremely disappointed!

                  Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

                  The absolute worst purchase in my life. Does not get clothes clean, takes hours to do a load of wash because it is always UNEVEN and has to re-fill to adjust clothes. The amount of water in washer doesn't even cover the clothes. No soaking cycle, no water level choice for small or large loads. So disappointed, what a waste of money.

                          I love the performance and Large Capacity that give the convenience of not having to do laundry as often. It cleans so well and the dryer with the wrinkle free w/ steam setting lets you take control of the time you want to remove a load of wrinkle free clothes. The wrinkle care setting will let you go away for up 3 hours after the clothes have finished and will tumble them and keep them wrinkle free you when you get back from what ever you are doing. I love it.
