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.

              I was very hesitant to purchase a top load HE washer because of the balance issues, and researched different makes and models before choosing an LG . I am glad I did. I have been using my LG washer for 3 months now and have experienced no balance issues or any other problems. Just make sure you level the machine, and load your clothes balanced all around the drum. You cant wash rubber backed rugs, but over all I am very pleased with this purchased.

              Very Displeased With This Washer

              By 

              from North Carolina

              Comments about LG Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

              I have been experiencing some issues with this top load washer, specifically during the spin cycle. The washer has detected an out of balance load on ALL of my laundry washes. This seems to only happen during the spin cycle, prompting it to redistribute water to try and balance the load. My problem is it dosn't just do this once, it will continuously do this during a wash load until its right, wasting way too much water. This past month my water bill went sky high. I've sat in front of my washer during a session, just to see what it does, the spin cycle lasted about an hour(maybe more) because of the uE error; total time was about two hours! During this I also saw my washer display 29 minutes remaining then suddenly jump down to 22 and show the uE symbol and add water and jump up and down between numbers over and over. I've watched videos on how to load the washer and tried to wash like items together, to no avail. I've had this washer for almost a year now and I agree the first couple months were great, but its just gotten worse.

My friends and family say it is the best looking machine they have seen. It is so easy to operate and the controls make it seem like a game. Keep on keeping on you are doing a great job.

                          Right after I bought this washer (and the matching dryer) Consumer Reports said that customers complained that the load unbalances This has happened to me twice since I got the washer about 6 weeks ago. I tried to wash a sleeping bag plus towels plus a lot of clothes in one load and the load unbalanced.The other time I tried to wash a comforter, a mattress cover, and 3 sheets in one load. The load unbalanced. I would advise not putting too many bulky items in the same load. Otherwise, I really like this machine: it washes really well and quietly. It takes me about 1 hour and 40 minutes to do a big load, including towels, from start to finished drying. It is not complicated to use-- I just choose my cycle by pushing one button and that's it. Even my teenage son enjoys doing laundry now.

                                  I've been using this new washer for about 6 weeks now. So far so good. It seems to use less water. The features are interesting- sensing the weight and size of your load and filling with water based on that. I've been cautiously watching the spin cycle to see if it gets out of balance. I've not had any issue with it but then my loads tend to be small to medium size. It takes some getting used to after using my old 1990 model! Appearance wise it looks quite stylish if you care about style/design.
