    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 replaced a 5 yr old Profile and there is no comparison. Clothes are much cleaner and once we read the directions a few times it was easy to operate. We pretty much use the "cotton/normal" cycle and it fits a lot of different types of loads. Don't understand why you can't use Bleach for color safe in the bleach container. P.S. Also recently purchased LG Refrigerator and love it.

        Enjoying my LG

            Comments about LG Ultra Large Capacity White Top Load Washer:

            I researched a lot of washers and this one had the features that I wanted. Not all machines have a 30 minute "soak" cycle but this one does. It is also very easy to program and use and you can make your own program and save 1 as well. I have been using it for just about a month and so far have really enjoyed it. The spin cycle even on "low" is impressive. I was worried that my wash would be very wrinkled but so far it is fine. I still have to wash nylon and lace curtains which will be the ultimate test on that one but have decided that I would probably use "no spin" and hang them on the line and see how that works first. The big tub is great, I wash the tablecloths from church functions and can do 7 or 8 at a time, no problem. Wash looks and smells clean using less detergent.

                    It truly is a large-capacity washing machine. The absence of a center spindle helps quite a lot, and its relative quietness is a bonus. We are much happier with this machine than with our previous machine, a front-loader, which we eventually sold because of the massive vibration (we nicknamed it the Sikorsky). This is the washing machine you want.

                                        This is a terrific washing machine. We were a little skeptical about the lack of an agitator. But were quickly convinced that the machine is engineered so well that it does a great job. Impressed enough to make us seriously consider other LG products.
