wanted to return it the day after i purchased it! found out the balance was wrong when it was installed. don't use a level' just adjust the legs on it so the wash tub is centered in the cabinet. thats all. i went from wanting to return it to being really happy with it. by far the best washer we've ever owned, by far! it cleans your clothes much much better. gives you a lot of options, simple to operate. so quiet you will at firdt go in and check to see if it's still running, at a 1,100 rpm rinse speed the cloths come out almost dry. the bad reviews i've read all come from not centering the wash basket in the center of the cabinet. if it isn't the machine just keeps on trying to re balance over and over so the cloths don't get washed properly and it takes forever to do a load. i went back where i bought it to return it as i thought it was a piece of junk at first. after centering the basket i found out what a great washer it is. it's a beautiful machine with lots of easy to use options, and it's so sturdy. by far the best machine we've ever owned, hands down!!!

At the end of the cycle, all the clothes are tied up together in knots. Have to use a lot more soap to get the clothes clean. Softener does not dispense properly. Sometimes jeans must go through 2 cycles to get the dirt out. Likes how quiet it is and it doesn't jump around.

Comments about LG Ultra Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

This is a smart washing machine, it senses the size of the load, fills the tub with the right amount of water, then goes to work. It seems to take a little longer than our old washing machine, but not a problem if it uses less water & energy.The clothes come out clean, enough said.

Service and delivery comments:

The installers put this through a very narrow opening, but no problems, one installer even owns the same washer/dryer combination.

      Comments about LG Ultra Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

      My washer died on me and my daughter had just bought an LG and loved it. Since my old washer really wasn't very old (4 1/2yrs.) I was sure I wasn't going to buy the same brand so I had it in mind when I went looking. Found a great deal and bought it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

        Abt delivery/setup people are always efficient, knowlwdgeable and friemdly. They care for our house like it was their own. It is one of the main reasons we are repeat customers purchasing electronics, kitchen and household equipment for many years. No one does this part of the business better than Abt.

                after doing a lot of research, I decided on LG, and I'm glad I did. The washer has lots of feature, but not too many. It's so easy to load, and understand how to use, I barely consulted the manual. An excellent value.

                    A very well designed huge capacity washer, excellent for everyday uses, energy and water efficient, spin drying outperforms many other more expensive washers. Would be even better if a different light indicator lit up signals the function "Water Plus".

                            I have had this product for about 6 weeks and am liking it very much. The only thing that takes getting used to is the amount of time the wash cycle takes. My last washer was done in about 30 minutes, this one takes almost twice as long when I use the preset features. I do like the fact that the machine determines the water level based on how much is in the machine, so that saves on water.

                                The washer is a large capacity and that is the only plus. I bought a washer and dryer pair. I left the machine over the weekend with the lid open and water out of the soap dispenser. I came back to a sewage stench to the washer. It says to periodically to clean the washing machine to clean for black mold buildup and germs. If I had know this I wouldn't have purchased it. I never had this problem on my front load washer and dryer. You need to run monthly using TUB CLEAN to keep tub clean for hygienic use. Also this machine seems to get unbalanced very easily. My husband balanced it and it continues to have the same problem. Not happy with this washing machine or dryer. BTW- Dryer does not seem to dry towels in the time selected. It takes several cycles before they come out dry.

                                    I loved my previous washer and this one is even better! It's quiet and has little vibration. My favorite feature is the little tune it plays when it is done. It doesn't have as many cycles as my previous machine but so far I haven't found anything I can't wash. And the large capacity is great. Overall it's a well thought out washing machine.
