WT5480CW 27" Top Load Washer with 5.0 Cu. Ft. Mega Capacity Energy Star Certified, TurboWash Technology, 6Motion Technology in White is rated 4.637096774193548 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Washer- best of show ! This is the best washing machine I have ever owned. I am single and love that fact that I don't have to worry about doing small loads as the water is automatically determined each wash by the size of the load- no wasted water It is quiet and alerts me to finishing the cycle with a pleasant musical trill- no annoying alarms. ! It is also fabulous on large items like blankets- no trips to the cleaners for those oversize items ! On another note- perhaps only appreciated by a woman- it is so attractive ! I love the graphite grey color on my laundry room. Every time I walk through the laundry room to my garage- I admire them - my washer and dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't perform - Doesn't Clean Clothes This washer machine has some real flaws. The design and software of this machine can not perform what it advertises. It does not conserve on water or electricity. It does not clean clothes properly. The machine dispenses laundry detergent and liquid softener any time during the laundry cycle. Does not spin correctly. I have to physically add more water to my loads because it does not put enough in. A lot of the clothes float to the top. I have to put my clothes on an extra spin cycle. I have washed some articles of clothing twice because the washer did not clean it correctly. My towels come out hard as a rock when dried. Very Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I Wait So Long Just purchased the LG Top Loader with Dryer. Both machines are amazing. I gave four stars for value because I was able to purchase during a huge sale. I love the features on the washer. My biggest concern was to buy a washer with a "spin" cycle, not a "rinse and spin". You know, for the times when you just need to ring out the laundry. I was skeptical about the top loader and agitation, but I have to tell you that my clothes have never been cleaner. The machine knows what it is doing. I purchased the largest capacity washer and dryer that LG made and I am so glad. I can do two loads at one time. It has cut my washing time in half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this washer After having my last washing machine for only 5 years, I couldn't wait to get rid of it. I am so happy that I did. I am already very happy with my LG washer. From the cute chimes when it starts to the lid that locks while in use, it is an amazing product. The only thing that could be better is the spin cycle. I think the items are sometimes a little too wet when the cycle is done. Sometimes, I do have to run a second spin cycle (which I can). Some loads only give you the option to spin at a certain speed. But, this is a minor issue and not one that would deter me from puchasing another LG product in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big disappointment I thought that I was getting a top of the line washer but have been very disappointed with this washer. It does not clean well, is rough on the clothes as they rub against each other without much water - some items not even getting wet until late in the cycle. I always use the extra water feature and even then it is not enough to clean well. Our towels are getting dingy and are not soft like they should be. My laundry now completes in a mass of wrinkles! I always try to use low spin when the cycle allows it but low spin is not available on cotton/normal, which is the cycle I would most frequently use. I was hoping after a few months use I would be happier with it but I am not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with our purchase We do a lot of laundry with 2 college kids and 2 high school kids all home for the summer. We love the size. We had an LG front load washer that we really liked, but it went on the fritz after 8 years of use. We still hope to get it working, but we saw the topload without the agitator and trusted the LG brand. The options are great. Just remember to slide the detergent/softener drawer shut before you start. We actually prefer the topload. As we get older, it's easier to reach in from the top than to squat down and pull clothes out from the front. Does a great job getting clothes clean. Great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Washer I love this washer. It's fancy, has all those pretty little dingy sounds, is very efficient and washes well. The only thing I'm running into that's an issue is that at times it will state the wash is unbalanced and run over and over and over... no matter what we do. We only run into this issue if we try to wash pillows. We make sure to balance it and everything. Something that would be very useful is a button or selection to empty out the washer of water if and when we run into this issue. Despite that, I still love this washer so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Performance I am pleased with this washer overall. The controls are easy to use, and it does a good job with much less water than my old machine. My one problem with it is the depth of the tub. I chose a top loader because I had heard horror stories about front loaders. However, the tub is so deep that I have to either use a reaching tool or stand on a step stool to reach items at the bottom (I am not a tall person). Having said that, I prefer that problem to the mold and stink that seems to afflict my friends' front loading machines. I have owned this machine for two months and hope it lasts a long time, but it's too soon to predict long-term reliability. Today it's performing well, and I like it so far.
