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:

      Really pleased with this washer after the first month or so of use. Much quieter and slightly faster than our old front-loader, and handles larger loads. After proper leveling of the machine, the self-balancing function is pretty amazing. As with most top loaders, getting clothes out of the bottom can be a bit challenging, but I doubt we'll ever go back to a front loader!

              We replaced a Whirlpool washer which was only three years old but had continual issues. The warranty firm finally decided to buy back the washer. We reviewed several washers and decided on this LG model since it matched up fairly close with the Whirlpool dryer. After using it for about three months we are very satisfied with its performance and based on that experience would recommend this washer.

                        I am very happy with the features and performance of this large capacity top-load HE washer. It actually washes better than I expected and handles much larger loads than my old standard washers. I love the load size sensor for water use, the fact that I can use less detergent, and that it's more gentle on clothing and other things. I've had no problems with the washer after almost four months of use. I did a lot of comparison shopping and it paid off.

                            From it's ability to handle all sizes of laundry loads to the large array of selecions for each load that needs to be washed, my new LG washer is making my time doing laundry much shorter. Beside the ease of use of the machine, it is much quieter than my old machine and plays a cute, cheerful tune when the cycle has finished.

                                We have used this washer quite a lot for a month after purchase. Ease of use and excellent result every time summarize this product's performance. The many available features are self-explanatory. This LG top-load washer, WT4970CW, is quiet and seems to be power-efficient - everything you would want in this modern-day living. We are happy about this recent purchase after our old unit conked out after a long service.
