We have had this washer for over 6mo. I HATE it. If you live in the city and work in a office you'll probally like it, but if you live in the country or do manual labor and get dirty this washer is not for you !!! It will not get your clothes clean or remove Oder. I fight with it constantly with UE uneven load, 11min left and it stops, fix load and boom now it's 22 min left but when you get back to 11 min boom UE you fix it back to 22 min after six times I shut it off. This morn I just want spin but no it's got to put the water to it so I shut it off turned the water off tried agian and finally it finished !!! This washer sucks big time. Wish I had the old type !!!

Cleans good but leaves towels stinky

By  from Detroit, MI, United States
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

I don't usually write bad reviews but this product does a couple things that I really don't like. I've had it for about 2 years. In order to get towels that don't smell I have to double wash them. And soak them. That is the only thing that works. They don't go in smelling awful they come out that way. Also things get twisted in knots, buttons have been broken in half, and that spin cycle does strange things. I'd recommend you keep looking. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good washer

By  from South Carolina, United States
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

Does a good job and I am pleasantly surprised at how clean the cloths are. Fairly quiet compared to traditional washers. Only negative is the amount of dirt that collects in the bleach dispenser which, I don't use but have to clean. I really appreciate the bright whites feature and notice a difference in how the whites look brighter. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great washer

By  from Arkansas
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

I have had this washer for 20 months now and absolutely love it! I have tried several of the wash settings and get wonderful results with each one. It has a huge tub capacity and I can wash all my king sized bedding in it - no more expensive dry cleaning prices to wash my comforter. In fact the tub is so large that I have to stand on tip toe to reach some small items of clothing on the bottom. I have found nothing that I don't like about this washer and would definitely buy LG again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Really like this washer

By  from Burlington, WI, United States
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

I had purchased a front load LG washer & dryer in 2009...loved them, but due to life's circumstances had to sell when I moved. I decided to buy the top loading LG washer this time and I must say I am amazed at the depth of the tub. I love being able to wash huge loads that come out very clean. Like the front loader I once had, I also make sure to leave the detergent drawer and machine door open so it will thoroughly dry...just common sense with anything you use that involves water to avoid mold and mildew. A little over a year of use and still happy with my purchase...have always favored LG...Thanks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

We hate this washer

By  from PA, United States
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

This washer has three MAJOR problems. 1. It often goes unbalanced in spite of multiple re-levelings and careful selection of clothes and placement of clothes in the washer. 2. It ties the clothes in knots. We've tried every cycle type and spin speed but it always ties up the clothes and twists them around each other. 3. The clothes come out of the washer so wrinkled (see #2) that almost everything, including wrinkle-free no-iron fabrics, need to be ironed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Very poor at washing clothes

By  from gillette,wy
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

We have now had this for a year and five months. Not impressed with this washer. Have had no mechanical issues with it. But this thing gets out of balance extremely bad and all the time. Yes it is level. The washing part of it is not very good and especially with washing whites. Whites do not get clean. It is a washer to wash clothes and it does a very poor job washing them. Not impressed at all with it. I would not buy another one and would not rec amend it to anyone. Very poor in the washing department. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

We bought this unit almost one year ago. Initially there was a problem with the main motherboard on the unit, and we had to call out the LG service person twice before the motherboard was replaced and the unit has operated great ever since. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

LG Washer

We purchased this LG Washer with matching dryer about a year ago. We weren't living here full time. We are now. We love this set. It cleans the clothes well. The design of the stainless steel interior is sleek. It's a large capacity and washes large loads, heavy quilts/bed spreads/ or comforters easily. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
