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 WaveForce Ultra Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

        Bought this washer for it's size and features. Things I like: size, features, looks, quality. Things...not so much: Can't open the lid without pausing. I get why that is...but could do it with old one and found it helpful. It makes some very odd noises. Again..I know why but still a bit disconcerting. I'm sure I will get used to it and it'll be no big deal. It says it's "True Balance -- anti-vibration system". It seems to me something labeled thusly would vibrate less than it does. It's not horrible or obnoxious but just seems to vibrate more than I expected. I have had to rearrange a load or two because it went out of balance. Granted, it was a small load and perhaps that's that price to pay for a washer than can do very large loads (and it does them very well).

          Comments about LG WaveForce Ultra Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

          Love this washer! The capacity is enormous! I can wash a king sized quilt or several large dog beds in it with ease. It got the dog paw mud stains off of a light blue quilt without any stain pretreatment.
          One lesson that I learned is that the washer holds twice what my dryer does. I can only put half of a full load in the dryer at a time, because the clothes will come out wrinkled if I cram the entire washing load into the dryer at one time.
          It may seem silly, but the little song it plays upon cycle completion brings a smile to my face every time!

          Service and delivery comments:

          The delivery guys were great. Very professional and helpful, gave a full tutorial on how to use the washer and tips for success.

                  Replaced an old machine. The old washer never cleaned as good as this one does. Was Leary of the new technology but works great. Not as hard to use as I thought it would be. Very quite operating washer. Love the large capacity.

                      After using the model WT4970, for six months we have soap spots on our sheets when we wash in bulky mode. We have hit extra water button a least twice. but seem to have not enough water to cover the sheets and sometime the clothing. water issues seem to be the most prevailing problem we have incounter.
