I needed a new washer because my old agitator machine quit working. In doing lots of research, I was VERY nervous about the unbalanced issue. My laundry is in the garage and I do not have time to babysit or take 2 hours to complete a load that keeps trying to balance. However, I have owned this machine for several weeks now and done many different types of loads. I have not had any unbalanced problems at all. ZERO! I worried and stressed for no reason! I did read the instructions and I follow directions. Before, I would throw everything in the old machine without a thought. Now, I do take an extra minute or two to sort appropriately, with heavy items on the bottom and lightweight items on top. So incredibly happy with this machine. Do not let the small percentage of unbalanced issue horror stories deter you. This is a GREAT machine with nice features and performance. And the matching dryer is good, as well.

I would expect an HE machine to be an improvement over the old agitator type machine, but it is not. The cycles take forever. The clothes are dingy and appear to not be clean, and they do not feel rinsed even when using the extra rinse cycle. When using bleach on color safe towels, the towels end up with orange bleach spots and damaged fabric. I believe this is a result of not enough water in the wash cycle. Consequently, the bleach is going directly on the towel instead of in the water. I never had this problem with my old machine. Also, I was able to wash non-skid backed rugs in my old machine, which is not recommended in this machine. It is almost impossilbe to find a rug that is not backed. In some cases progress is not really progress. This is one of them. I wish I had never purchased this HE machine.

      Comments about LG Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

      My favorite feature is the tune my washer plays when finished, always puts a smile on my face. Love the look, the controls on the front, the large stainless tub, very strong spin cycle. My only negative is lint that is left on bras and panties. Washed my new king sized bedspread without a hitch!

                  We bought this machine mid November 2014. My wife loves this machine. It has reduced our water bill by $20 per month. Clothes are clean. Drying time is cut nearly in half which saves on the electric bill.

                      You don't have to do much searching online for this top loader before find a whole bunch of people with the same problem and no answers from LG. The machine constantly gets to the end of the cycle and reports an unbalanced load, refills with water, and the goes back to spin cycle. Given that this is rated as He it ends up using more water in the end with the constant refills. I've stood there for hours watching the spin cycle with no rocking drum and it still gets down to 1 minute and restarts it again.

                          After a considerable amount of research, we decided to purchase the LG WT1201 CW top loading washer. It is easy to use and our laundry is definitely clean. It is amazing that such a small amount of water & detergent can do such a nice job. The only "issue" we have found is that washing rubber backed throw rugs is not recommended. We knew that this machine is not recommended for "waterproof" items but didn't realize that would include rugs that do need to be cleaned occasionally. That is the only reason our overall rating is not a 5!!

                              We find that even with one child (2 yrs old) that we do tons of laundry! I love the child lock feature on this washer. It also makes our clothes look and smell great! Fits our queen size comforter with ease. The drum is wide and deep, so it makes getting lots of laundry done in decent amount of time. I also really like the fact that I have several different options to wash exactly what i need! Definitely worth the money we spent on it. We have had it for about a month now.

                                      WOW! I had no idea how poorly my old washer was working until I started using this one. It was obvious from the very first load of towels -- cleaner, brighter, fresher, softer. I used the exact same soap, amount of soap and the same softener, and amount of softener. Bliss. I am tempted to rewash my entire closet!
