Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer on the market! Love this high efficiency to load washer. It has a lot of cool features such as smart diagnosis which allows me to troubleshoot problems easily with my phone. My close come out nice and clean. It cleans even the toughest stains which hand washing is barely able to handle. I highly recommend this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine! I love this machine! I hadn't gotten a new washer in over 17 years so wow the changes in them and the technology. I love it! I love that there is no agitator taking up room and that even though the cycles are longer than old machine I can do one load that would have taken my old machine two so still saves time! I only have one curiosity about the machine and it doesn't' bother me I just cant' figure out why there is always water standing in the bleach tray after each cycle whether I use it or not, but as long as it never smells that's fine! Just love it and the tune it plays at the end of the cycle way nicer than annoying buzzer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from always gets off balanced and takes super long I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I hate my LG washer. I have had it 9 months and I do not enjoy washing anymore. I hate the idea when I stop the machine during a wash and see how very little water is being used to wash the clothes. I put it on bulky cycle to get the full load of water and then it is constantly getting off balanced. If it says it will take 54 minutes at the start of a cycle….forget it…..it will take longer. Some of my husbands t-shirts are frayed around the neck which has never happened before. I want my 30 year old machine back that was still working! It got the job done clean and fast! The only problem was it didn't do big loads or quilts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It whistles while you work!! This washer has been super efficient so far but I've only had it a month. At first, I was not pleased that my clothes were so wrinkled when they came out but now I just adjust the spin speed to low and that wrings them well without as many wrinkles. I also like that I can set the water temp to tap cold and tell the machine how dirty my load is! The machine runs quietly except for all the musical tones it makes when changing cycles. This is not a problem for me because it's in my basement but I wouldn't want it on the same floor. And I wish it didn't take so long to finish the load - minimum of 52 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product We have had front loaders, but were unhappy with the mold/mildew that grew on the seal. At our age (mid sixty's) stooping to load or unload was literally becoming a pain in the back. So, top loading for the washer was a must. We have Cal King sheets and like to maximize our loads for economy. This washer featured a very large capacity to do sheets and other items. The low height agitator means our wash is not beaten to death. The stainless steel drum and agitator means easy maintenance and low residue. Direct drive means fewer visits by technician to replace belts. Overall, we are pleased thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb washer I compared almost all of the major brands and I kept going back to LG. My sister purchased an LG Washer & Dryer about 6 yrs ago and has had nothing but positive comments on the brand. I went with the model WT4970CW, because of the large capacity; they are not kidding (I think you could fit a person in this thing!) The washer is quiet, efficient, and does a great job. I love the fact that I can get all of my bedding in their without a problem. I also got the matching gas dryer and it is fantastic too. The washer is not bulky and the style/design is appealing. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Who needs an agitator..?! I was surprised, and a bit skeptical, not seeing an agitator in this machine, albeit the capacity was beyond expectations (ate up a dozen bath towels with ease). The pre-sets are very handy, while still allowing the user to customize temp/spin as needed. Though only having it a month or so at this writing, I'm very pleased with the way it cleans and wrings out a good deal of moisture-saving drying time. Be aware, it does require HE (high efficiency) detergent. Plays a nice little tune, too, when the load is done. PS-I bought the extended warranty from Lowes, due to the fact I've never owned an LG washer. LG warranty states "10 years"; I think a closer examination reveals "2 years" for non-core parts...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My LG Top Loader Washer This is the Best washing machine I have ever owned. I wanted a high efficiency model but since I have some back problems, I didn't want to bend at the waist to get the damp clothes (which can be heavy) from the washer. Then the salesman showed me an LG high efficiency top loading model. It has plenty of bells and whistles, is very very quiet, and my clothes have never looked better. I also have a LG dryer and love it. I would highly recommend LG products, and if you don't like bending down to pick up the clothes from the washer, consider getting a top loading machine like this one.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
