Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Service from LG is horrible! Less than a year old and can not get LG to take care of the problem. Can't wash load without machine stopping at rinse cycle. Have to unplug every time and start over. The service company they are contracted with are horrible. Never show up when scheduled, never came back with the parts. Now 3 months have passed and LG says we are out of warranty and we need to go thru extended warranty with Home Depot. Why should Home Depot take the hit for the repairs? LG service is horrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Like it a lots. Flexibility in functions. OI had a few problems at first, but it was simply my error. After I got accustomed to the washer, I love it. I bought asd replacement for an older washer I had given a relative who was just starting out. She wanted to trade, but that isn't going to happen. August 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this washer This washer is great! Large enough to wash my king sized comforters with ease. The cold water wash setting works great! Clothes get soo clean & fresh with very little detergent, and are practically dry after the very quiet spin cycle completes. Totally worth the money. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My LG Top Loader Washer This is the Best washing machine I have ever owned. I wanted a high efficiency model but since I have some back problems, I didn't want to bend at the waist to get the damp clothes (which can be heavy) from the washer. Then the salesman showed me an LG high efficiency top loading model. It has plenty of bells and whistles, is very very quiet, and my clothes have never looked better. I also have a LG dryer and love it. I would highly recommend LG products, and if you don't like bending down to pick up the clothes from the washer, consider getting a top loading machine like this one. November 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine! I love this machine! I hadn't gotten a new washer in over 17 years so wow the changes in them and the technology. I love it! I love that there is no agitator taking up room and that even though the cycles are longer than old machine I can do one load that would have taken my old machine two so still saves time! I only have one curiosity about the machine and it doesn't' bother me I just cant' figure out why there is always water standing in the bleach tray after each cycle whether I use it or not, but as long as it never smells that's fine! Just love it and the tune it plays at the end of the cycle way nicer than annoying buzzer! November 1, 2014
