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.

Comments about LG Waveforce 5.0 Cu Ft White Top Loading Washer:
I really like this LG washer. The tub is huge. It uses less water and less electricity. the only draw back is it takes a bit longer than my old washer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Owned this product 2 months and it has been fantastic. It is intuitive to use, relatively quiet and beautifully designed. LG's instructions and online product registration/ information are equally well designed and easy to use.

I bought my washer over a month ago. I was skeptical at first because there is no agitator. My biggest concern was that the clothes wouldn't come clean. I have been more than pleased! The clothes are clean and the washer is very quiet.
Ease of use
from Las Vegas, NV, United States
We purchased this washer a six weeks ago and its been great. Easy to use and delay wash is excellent. I have a lot of football jerseys and the delicate cycle comes in handy. Great washer so far!
from Tunkhannock, PA, United States
I've had this about a month and so far the only problem is the bleach container doesn't empty completely. It runs great tho and i like the features it has. It doesn't make much noise and I've noticed the clothes come out whiter wither this washer
Love the top load!
from Paris, TX, United States
I bought this washer after a lot of online research and so far it has lived up to its high quality ratings. I love the top load. (I had a previous front load) Clothes are clean and there are so many options available for all types of fabric.
from Southwrn Ohio
We bought the washer and dryer set after our older stackable decided to give up. These are just amazing. They do everything but load themselves. Well worth the money. Product will not disappoint.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I love it!

Oh, how I wish that I had had this when my children were at home! I can do a week's worth of laundry in no time at all. The capacity is phenomenal, and our clothes come out really clean. Even my husband noticed that our white clothes are brighter, and he's never mentioned laundry before. It's absolutely wonderful.

This is our second LG top-load HE washer and we lust love it. It cleans well. It has a variety of cycles available to customize your wash perfectly. The controls are easy to use. It's actually quiet too!

Best Washer I've Ever Owned
from Fresno, CA, United States
I've had this washer for 3 months now and have nothing but excellent results. I decided to change from another brand that I used for years and years and wish I had done so earlier. My clothes are cleaner and the tub is so large that I'll never be able to fill it :)
