We read all the review from all over the internet before buying this machine. We even paid for a subscription to Consumer Reports, which gave LG the highest marks across the board for Quality, Performance and Gentleness to clothes. Still, I think we totally lucked out on buying this LG Washer and we couldn't be happier. . If you read complaints about any of the HE Washers (Top Loaders or Front Loaders) about laundry coming out soapy, those people are using detergent that is not HE rated. If there are complaints about unbalanced loads, they are not washing like items in their washer. If their machine is smelling like mildew, they are not leaving the door open so the machine can dry out. If you read your instructions that come with this washer, your washer will be the best washer you have ever owned. You can select water temperature and how fast you want the washer to spin out your clothes. You can press PAUSE and open your machine up to add that piece of clothing or towel you forgot. You can Select a Speed Wash or select from 14 other wash setting with a turn of a dial. Don't be scared off from reading that it takes 90 minutes to do a load of laundry because It all depends on what and how much Laundry is in your washer. The time adjusts to fit the amount and type of laundry in the wash. Clothes dry much faster because they come out of this washer drier so laundry is done faster. This washer is so quite too, all you really hear is the water running into the machine and the music it plays when your load of wash is done. This machine is very easy to use too! I already know I'll buy the matching LG Dryer when my 20 year old dryer breaks down. You get what you pay for and we are glad we bought this LG Washer.

I have had this unit for 4 days now. It hasn't worked properly since day one. First - on the spin cycle, the unit has a vibration/shaking that is, IMHO, not normal. The unit is balanced, at least according to the installers and my level (although I don't own the best being a single woman#. I have tried to move the unit as instructed in the video #push down on it at all corners) - it doesn't budge so it feels like it's solidly connected to the floor. It doesn't jump off the floor when spinning - the entire unit just rocks and shakes and vibrates like crazy. Second - this unit is not as quiet as I would've expected. The "whump, whump, whump" sound as it's pumping out the water is very loud. The sound of the water entering the unit is also very loud. I think these are compounded due to the glass tap which isn't as good of a sound barrier as a solid metal top. Third - the unit front is not solid/firm. When you push on it to move the unit back into place, as I have to do by using my entire body, it bows inward and forms a dent. I've been lucky that the dent has disappeared, except for one time. Now I have a dented machine. There are some good points. It has a HUGE tub that washes a king size comforter with ease. Clothes come out smelling very fresh and the spin cycle takes out almost every single drop of water so that your dry time is considerably less. Bottom line - at the price paid for this unit, I am left extremely disappointed in the overall quality. I have never owned an LG product before and did a lot of online research before making this purchase. What I received is not what I anticipated or expected.

        Best Uses

          I bought the WT5680HWA to replace my aging Sears front load washer and I really agonized about not staying with the front load system. Problem is, I had the mold issue with my front load and I didn't want to go another decade leaving the door open all the time. Wow, am I glad I bought the top load! Neat and tidy - I can now reach shelves above it - and big enough to wash a king size comforter. Plus, it is so quiet and the house doesn't shake when it goes into a spin cycle!!! Our clothes come out fresh and clean - I see plenty of wash water, unlike some reviews have stated, our machine does it's job with quiet efficiency.

          By 

          from S Elgin

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Large capacity
          • Quiet

          Cons

          • Squeak due to improperly installed tub buffer.

            Comments about LG Waveforce 5.0 Cu Ft White Top Loading Washer:

            Selected based on reviews, but my parents have an earlier model which we've used when visiting. Same great build. One issue arose with a squeaking noise and an ABT tech was dispatched. Some foam buffers were not installed properly and were rubbing during normal use. The machine runs quiet which is a plus as it's on the bedroom level of the house.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery drivers were friendly and professional. Made good estimates on delivery time. Service tech took the time to explain proper loading and washing techniques.

                I LOVE this washer! It doesn't bounce all over my laundry room; it has some super features for getting rid of allergens; it has a very large tub, so that you can wash pillows, comforters, blankets, bathroom mats, etc, without filling the tub. The steam feature is very nice for cottons like sheets and underwear. It is very efficient. I can watch it wash. My husband is fascinated by that fact! (He's and engineer. They like weird stuff.)

                                    We bought this Top Loader Washer after 12 years with a LG front Loader, we were done with the smell from a front loader. This washer washes very well, the clothes come out smelling clean. There is no quick cycle, the shortest cycle takes about 39 mins.
