Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by girlmommy Lived up to my expectations
We were coming from a typical top-loader with agitator. It was amazing how big and deep the basin is! It doesn't require a lot of soap or a lot of water, yet the clothes come out very clean. We basically use the regular wash cycles and the bulky bedding. It has different temperature cycles. The standard cycle is 57 minutes long using warm water. I have found smellier clothes need extra attention, like sprinkling soap directly on clothes instead of in the soap drawer. But I'm extremely happy with this washer. The clothes are damp at best when cycle is finished, making it even better requiring a short drying cycle. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MamaLu I love doing laundry
After a complete dud of a washer I spent a lot of time looking for the right appliance (consumer magazine reviews, friend and coworker reviews, online reviews, appliance repair person interviews). Probably too much research but it is a lot of cash and an essential item. So far it works beautifully . I would have preferred non-digital controls but now that I have it, I love the countdown timer and the music that sings when the laundry is done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JMB1 We love this washer
I purchased this washer because our old washer was way old and we had sunk a lot of money in to it. I have already seen saving in both water and power bills with this new washer. This washer has many bells and whistles than we use but the larger load size really pays off for us. It quite and makes the washing duty much easier. I did a lot of research before I purchased this waster and its turn out great. I have had this washer since august 2013 with no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kcshep Great upgrade
We just upgraded from our old space saver that we got after we got married. But 11 years and 4 kids later we needed more room. We have cut our laundry time in half with this washer. My only complaint is that there are some features that the owners manual does not explain and online info is limited also.

My older model Whirlpool decided to quit on me. My husband and I went to The Home Depot to check out their stock of washers. I was stunned to open the lid and see that there was no agitator! A salesperson overheard me say that this would never get our clothes clean, and he called me over to the desk and explained how the machine worked. We were still skeptical and said we would think about it and come back later when we've made a decision. We went home and read all the reviews and everything I could find on the LG brand of washers. We returned that weekend to purchase it and set up delivery. The first 2 loads I washed, I sat right there in the laundry room and watched it wash. I kept stepping out to see how far away I could go and not hear it. It got our clothes cleaner, it was quiet, and it even plays a tune when the load is finished. (It even makes my older dryer more efficient (darn--'cause I want to get the matching one!) I have never had dry clothes in my dryer when using the "Energy Preferred" setting, and now they are done perfectly when the cycle ends!) Anyway, I love it and we are so glad we chose the LG.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoolguyFace Real value for the cost.
I researched top load, energy efficient washing machines for about two weeks. I compared so many models, and was initially expecting to spend a little more money than I did on this machine.
Even when pitting this model up against higher priced, competitor models, the customer reviews, along with independent consumer agency reviews, pointed me toward this model every time.
The controls are extremely easy to use and self explanatory. I have yet to have the need to break loads into multiple loads, as the size of the drum is more than sufficient. I've noticed that I went from 2-3 loads of wash every 5 days, to one load of wash per week.
While operating, I could hardly tell that the machine was running, and my clothes are coming out cleaner, and dryer than I have ever seen them, in any other machine. I was so pleased with this machine, and recommended it to my parents, who also purchased the same model.
I see no reason to jump up in price, on any other competitor model, or not to spend a few extra dollars for this machine, if comparing it to a cheaper model. LG makes a solid machine, and the proof is in the pudding with this one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weeble Love this machine!
Have had this LG top-load washer for a little over three weeks and can't say anything negative about it. The clothes are clean, the machine is quiet, and the selection of washing options is wonderful. I've already washed comforters and blankets that I never would have been able to do in our previous washer and they came out beautifully! Appreciate the ability to do larger loads and don't have a problem with the cycle time. A little longer cycle is a great trade-off for the ability to do larger loads less often. Great washer...we love it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lovable Get clothes cleaner, Sometimes Much Longer Cycles, Fewer Loads. Heavy Dirt Delicates Take Forever.
With HE detergents, loads come out very nice. My wife rarely has to spot treat, where with our old machine it was a big chore. She likes it but, finds that cycles tend to run noticeably longer than with an older style machine. The delicate cycle does not use enough water, but there is a way to make it add more. It will do up to three additional rinses, which are sometimes needed for heavy dirt delicates. It has lots of good stuff. If you don't have the heavy dirt delicates, you should be OK. At 5' 5" my wife can barely reach the bottom of the tub. She must stretch. Tub holds a huge amount and warns if overload. Fewer loads needed
