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.

This machine has a MAJOR downside to it. I've owned both the washer and dryer set for a year now and I've noticed that more often than not, the washer becomes unbalanced and must refill the drum with another full load of water to correct itself. Because of its auto "balance recovery" design, the machine will not alert you of an unbalance but will automatically refill its drum with fresh water, agitate the clothing, then spin empty again to try to correct it. The machine will continually do this over and over until it feels that the clothes have become re-balanced, which results in a serious, SERIOUS waste of water!! I will balance the clothes equally upon initial loading, but because there is no center agitator to keep them somewhat in place during the wash cycle, they jumble together and then fall randomly as the drum spins empty--RESULTING IN THE UNBALANCE! It's so frustrating!!! More often than not, I'll expect the load to finish in the "Quick Wash" 35 minute time frame, but when I go downstairs to check, I often discover that the machine has shut down mid-wash because it was unable to correct its own unbalance. Then I have to restart my wash, which causes WAY more water use and WAY more time! What is supposed to be a quick, 35 minute efficient wash ends up taking over an hour (sometimes two!!) depending on how many times the stupid machine messes up. I hate this washer! These new ones look so fancy and efficient but it's not until you've stopped using your old one that you realize how poorly the new designs are. I miss my center agitator, and I wish I had never bought this washer! The dryer, though, is wonderful.

          Bought over slightly less expensive Whirlpool brands. due to high rating in Consumer Reports a BIG +. Very reliable and easy to use. Washes full-loads with little detergent. Features/ settings standard with comparable brands, but quiet agitation and very easy to use control setting for older users.

                  Comments about LG Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

                  I love the controls on the front, it is so easy. I don't know why other washers have controls in the back! I bought this size washer so that I could wash comforters and bulky items with ease. It has been great for that & all other laundry. I had a very old washer before and needed to read the manual for this one (the salesman recommended it-good advice) as it loads differently. It works great for me. The funny thing is, with the large tub, I can barely reach the bottom. I'm average height (5'5") and it is a stretch. The only thing I wish were different is the top. I hate that it slopes. Wth a small laundry room this is premium space for freshly folded clothes. As they may slide off if the washer is on it's no longer usable space-which is needed.

                              I really like this washer. After having a front loader this is a nice change. I love the large capacity but also able to handle small loads when you need something washed quick. There is only one draw back and that is the depth of the tub. Since I am only 5' 2" it is almost impossible to reach the bottom of the tub to remove wet clothes. I use a stool but still struggle with it. I really wish the sales person would have pointed this out to me before I made the purchase. I still would have bought an LG product but maybe a different model.

                                  The washer has so many cycles that allow for the ultimate in customization. My water bill has dropped $20.00 since I began using this machine.
