WT5680HWA 27" Top Load Washer With 5 Cu. Ft. Mega Capacity, Steam Technology, TurboWash Technology, SmartDiagnosis, 14 Programs and NeveRust Stainless Steel Drum in White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 263.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size, some good some bad features Of course love the capacity of this machine, however that comes with regular incidents of having to pull some clothes out because the spin cycle can't handle the 75% full load. The cleaning phase is way too gentle for my six kids' filth, it barely swishes the clothes back and forth. I want to see them getting sloshed all over the place! The sanitary load is quite impressive! It removed the long standing musty smell from my towels left by my previous front loader and that lingered after the regular towel cycle with this machine. Definitely hate that it does not allow for a soak cycle. The thing drains after 5 mins if you pause or turn it off once it is full. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CLOTHES are VERY WRINKLED While others say how they love how almost all of the water is eliminated from the wash cycle, to me, that translates into VERY WRINKLED clothing. Pants legs are wrapped around themselves like a spindle. With my old washer, I used to wash and hang, and could avoid ironing most of my casual clothing. With the LG, I now have to put my clothing into the dryer to get out the horrid wrinkles, which I do not like to do. If I simply hang the clothes out of the washer, they would require ironing, which takes more time that I would like to spend on my laundry. For this reason, I would not recommend this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washer cleans clothes well This washer is well worth the money if you have a lot of clothes to wash on a regular basis. PLEASE read the manual and know how it works first. Do not attempt to figure it out on your own. You need to know how to work it so you can achieve maximum results with the cleanliness of the items you are trying to clean. It takes time to get used to this washer, especially if all you have ever used is conventional models/ types. I love how it spins the clothes almost dry. I love the capacity of this washer. It has cut my loads in half. I don't feel like I am spending hours in the laundry room as I used to before. The chrome areas scratch easy, so be cautious of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine We purchased this washing machine to replace an older agitator model that was leaking.. This washing machine performs flawlessly. The clothes come out cleaner than with the agitator model. We were worried that the newer machines using less water would be a problem. How wrong we were!!! Do not hesitate to buy this if you need a new washing machine that handles all size loads including very large loads. The only small issue we have found is that if you don't open the top completely when loading and unloading it can fall down on you. After a this happening a few times one should not forget to completely open the top, a very easy thing to do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One major drawback We bought this machine in July of 2014, and for the first month or two were very happy with it. It does have a huge capacity...seriously, HUGE. It does also clean very well, and does so efficiently. Unfortunately, there is one major flaw. When 'turbo wash' is engaged, the water has a propensity to slosh over the top of the tub, causing the machine to leak from the bottom. Very disappointed with this design flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it Our old washer broke and was unrepairable. I used my neighbor's lg a few times and loved it. We are very happy with the machine: large capacity, quiet when functioning, cleans well. I was a little skeptical at first, due to the "high efficiency" mode, that our clothes would be "clean". Our clothes are clean! The only down side is that the capacity is so large, you can feel like you need to find more clothes to fill it! It cleans well at max load or "normal" size loads. I like that you have the option to add a second rinse, or over ride the presets. We have found no negatives. Very happy; heartily recommend this model over the other similar competition.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Get Clothes Clean We have owned this washer for just under nine months now. I did my research before purchasing it and thought I was buying a good product. It has lots of nice whistles and bells, but it doesn't get clothes clean.....and yes, we do use the proper detergent and we do follow the manufacturers instructions for operating the washer. We purchased all new appliances (including this washer) for our new home. We bought the matching dryer and are 100% satisfied with it. We bought an LG 29 cubic ft, French door refrigerator and are 100% satisfied with it. This washer; however, does not come close to meeting our expectations. It looks great and has lots of nice features, but bottom line, it just will not get your cloths clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Washer I had read the reviews about the new high efficiency washers. I, too, was doubtful as to how clean my laundry would get with so little water being used. And that 'may' be the case with other washers....but not this one. This truly is the washer of my dreams. It has so, so many combinations of settings, small loads, huge loads, extra water, delicate, heavily soiled. Yet, with so many available settings, it's easy to use. LG truly has designed the washer of my dreams. Thank You!!
