Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shawns2k Best Washer I have ever had
We ordered both the washer and dryer online after my dryer went out on us. I have to say that I am very impressed. The washer has been a dream to use. It is very user friendly, super quiet, cleans very well, and after the spin cycle the clothes are pretty much dry and only need minimum time in the dryer.
I will add one of the reasons I bought these is due to quality of build. I am an aeronautical engineer and I look at quality of things with extra scrutiny. The hinges are beefy. The motor is strong and comes with a great warranty. I also love the flat tops on these washer and dryer. The only problem I have found with these is while folding clothes, since it is flat sometimes clothes fall behind the units. The fix was easy since I started folding my clothes on the folding table...lol.
Put this product in the mix if you are considering new units.

I absolutely love this machine! I've had it for a month. I was hesitant about the size, only because there are bigger ones, but the drum is enormous! It easily fits my king size sheets, pillow cases and bath sheets, and there is space for more. I'm down about 2 loads a week, and look for stuff to wash now. The machine is SO quiet, I honestly forget its even on. My machines are right outside my kids bedrooms, so I used to plan washing around naps, and never wash at night once the kids were in bed, but not anymore! I had previously read reviews about the machines spinning off balance, it happened with my first load of towels, and the machine immediately stopped spinning, filled up with water, and was able to rebalance the load. I was extremely impressed! I also purchased the dryer, so far, very happy. I have no problem fitting all the wet clothes into the dryer. I was after machines that have simple features, and to me, these were the most basic, yet sophisticated machines I could find. Overall, I am a very happy customer!

I read the many reviews prior to purchasing this washing machine. I was humored by the reviews from vertically challenged folks who had to use a ladder to get the clothes from the bottom. So very true! I'm 5'3" and I use a grabber to get the clothes out!!! Haven't had any issues. The delivery folks were awesome and leveled the machine and gave me some helpful hints. Excellent experience all around and no issues in the 3 weeks I've had the machine.

I bought this washer after the basic Whirlpool washer I had went out for the second time. Honestly it could have been repaired but I wanted to give a high efficiency washer a try in hopes of reducing utility bills. I picked this model because of all the favorable reviews and so far I love it. A regular washer is fine but I have to admit that the front controls, electronic buttons and beeps, soft close lid, etc. make this seem so much more modern and advanced.
Some of the highlights about this washer are:
- Tons of washing options
- It's extremely quiet
- Very large capacity (I have yet to have a load that's too big)
- Can put fabric softener in at the beginning
- Stainless steel drum
When the washer and dryer were delivered, one of the delivery guys explained the importance of correctly loading the washer. He said that you should load the washer as if there is an agitator in the center. He said that when he has to pick up washers that people want to return, 99% of the time it's because of balance issues. I have yet to have a single balance issue following his instructions.
Switching to a high efficiency washers takes a little adjustment. It's seems at times that the washer is not using enough water but that's the point. The cycles are longer but you can wash more with each load. One of the best things about this washer is the spin cycle. The spin cycles are longer and much faster so the dryer gets the job done much faster. I've received one water bill since buying this washer. It was a few dollars less and that was with a 5.1% rate increase so I feel this was an excellent purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KSamurai A Really Great Washing Machine... So Far
My wife and I bought this washer when our Whirlpool Front Loader, which was only 4 years old, broke another front seal. We had spent $400 dollars already and I was not going to spend another $200 on that machine. That would have been $600 in 6 months for a 4 year old washer!
This LG washer has been fantastic so far. My wife actually can't wait to do laundry. We love everything about it so far. Let me break it down. It holds a lot of laundry, I mean a lot. When you first put the clothes in, put them in in a circular pattern. Add your soap, softener, and bleach if doing whites. When started, the machine starts to turn and shimmy to evenly distribute the clothes, so the tub will be well balanced, and it weighs the clothes, to know how much water to use. This is a great feature. When that is done, the washer will start to spin slowly, while turning the water loose. The water falls through a grate feature that gets all the clothes wet, which it does quite nicely. I don't know what others are doing on here that their clothes don't get wet enough, but I am going to say "operator error". Learn how to do laundry.
The washer then calculates how much time the load will take. Washing occurs, the clothes spin out very well and are slightly damp when done, after being thoroughly soaked. This is another great feature. The clothes take less time to dry, which means the dryer is already open for when the next load is ready. The machine is extremely quiet. I forget that is on, it is so quiet. Our old machine, from day one, sounded like a jet preparing for take-off when it would go through a spin cycle.
Last but not least, the machine plays music when starting and finishing. Not an annoying buzzer, but a musical tune. The only problem here is it isn't very loud. That has been my only beef so far with this machine. We purchased this unit during the 4th of July Sale for a great price and saved over $150. Buy it on sale and this is a great purchase, as long as it lasts. We will see.

The cycle selections are very user friendly! I absolutely do not miss the agitator that I had with my old machine that made me think someone was tearing down walls if the load was too heavy! The machine is so quiet that you just don't hear it running at all, unless you're in the same room with it. The wash cycles are longer but I don't mind that because the spin cycle is so effective that my drying time is definitely cut in half! I love that I have very little to think about when washing clothes because most of the guess work has been eliminated! Even though the unit is larger than my previous machine, the sleek design makes it look like I have more room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaundryGuy LG 4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer is great!
After considerable research into direct drive, top loading, high efficiency washers, I selected the LG 4.3 cu. ft. unit. It is great and easily fit into our house through a couple sets of tight doorways and down the stairs (the delivery folks were great!). The drum on this unit is huge and very deep. It easily handles a load that would have been two super size loads in our old agitator top loading washer. The best part about the unit is how it extracts the water from the laundry, which makes them feel nearly dry at the end of the cycle. The result is that our drying cycles are a fraction of the time and saves us even more energy! The top door has a window in it so you can see the unit loading and washing, which is something we didn't have before. Other reviewers cautioned about how loads can easily get off balance if they are not loaded evenly, but we have not had that problem (even with teenagers doing their own laundry). I would strongly recommend this unit.
