Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 873 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Economical, Quiet and Efficient! This washer replaced my 12 y.o. top loader. By comparison it uses a tiny amount of detergent/water yet gets the clothes very clean. It handles all 6 of my cotton throw rugs or my Queen size quilted bed spread with room to spare. The spin cycle gets so much water out that the time spent in the dryer is much less. Lots of choices to customize each load. It even looks great with its clear glass lid and sparkling silver interior! April 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this washer!!! We have had this washer for almost 3 weeks now & I LOVE it! My family has been making fun of me for how excited I am about how well it works! I love the glass top, because I like to watch the clothes going through their cycles. I spent many hours researching washers, reading the reviews here & on Consumer Reports, trying to decide whether to go for an energy efficient top loader or front loader. I needed a large capacity washer, because we have 3 teenage girls & they can really go through the clothes, towels, sheets, sports & band uniforms! For 7 years we had one of the first energy efficient top loaders that we nicknamed the "button ripper". Every load washed, something would be ripped off of our clothes. Eventually every zipper pull was chewed up & broken, buttons from shirts ripped off, leaving a hole in the shirt, jean buttons, you name it, it was ripped off by the twisty plate things. I zipped or buttoned every article of clothing I put into it, didn't matter. I put clothes into washer bags--it ate the zipper pulls on the bags, then the buttons & zippers from the clothes the bags were suppose to protect. It was a nightmare! I had bought the best recommend washer (at that time) that I could afford & I had paid for the warranty service, so I felt stuck. So I was pretty skeptical about top loaders, but I was sick of my front loader, too. Bending over, stinky gasket, who needs it? One of my wonderful friends offered to trade me her old front loader for the button ripper (she needed something in her rental house) 3 yrs ago & we had been using it since. Unfortunately, the front gasket was torn (she didn't know before the trade, as it was in a rental) & the repair dude said wasn't worth replacing. So every once in a while my husband would silicone it, but it still leaked out water. I kept a rag under the washer to absorb the water, which since I did 20+ loads a week, there was a lot of water! The last few months, I could hear the motor bearings starting to whine, which meant that it wasn't long before it would just seize up & I would need a new washer ASAP. I had narrowed down my choices based on reviews & then went in to look at the washers in Home Depot. I wanted a top loader, but I needed to look into the drum to see if it had those twisty plates or not. The video is nice, but I just wanted to see inside the drum. The sales lady was really helpful, answered my questions & as I'm really nosy, I asked her what she had at home & which one she'd recommend to her family members. Turns out she has an LG (not this model) that she is really happy with & that when her niece (5 kids) needed a new washer last year, she recommended this model & her niece loves it. One of the best things about this washer is that I am now doing at least 6 loads less per week! We use a 3-bin laundry sorter & I would do a load once a bin filled up, pretty much 2 or more loads a day. This washer holds at least a half load MORE, which means we all spend a lot less time washing, drying & putting away laundry. I haven't had it long enough to compare water bills, but I know we are using less water, even though I use the extra rinse cycle frequently. Although our clothes always seemed clean before, I feel like they are cleaner now. And I love the soak cycle, for my husband's work clothes that are super dirty & need to be bleached. Couldn't do that in the front loader, I would soak them in a bucket of bleach water & then transfer them to the washer. Old school laundry! And his white shirts never ever got clean enough in my opinion. They are looking whiter now. Regarding laundry detergents & soaps, I've been using the liquid HE free & clear for years, along with a home-made laundry boaster of washing soda, baking soda & borax. Because you can do either a liquid or a powder in the dispenser, I put 1/3 c of my powder into a little zipper bra bag into each load. I don't use traditional fabric softener, instead I use 1/4 cup of White Vinegar instead. I have really sensitive skin & all the perfumes & dyes give me nasty rashes. A repair dude told me years ago that liquid fabric softener is the repair dude's best friend, because eventually it gums up the inside of the washers. Regarding the long cycles, the other washers had them also, so I am used to that. And when I have to wash a load that's smaller than normal, the "load sensing" feature works grand, I can see that there is enough water, etc by looking through the glass top & the clothes come out nice & clean. I've never had undissolved powder on the clothes. I know this is a super long winded review, but since reading about other buyer's real life experience with this product helped me make my choice, I wanted to return the favor. And I have more time to type, since my Mt. Washmore is a little bit smaller! July 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It does all you expect it to and more!! Very pleased with this washer and the matching dryer. I got a great deal on Black Friday and have used it for almost 2 months. It washes great, uses little water and can wash great big comforters with ease. The lights and sounds are an added bonus. Looks like Star Wars in the laundry room. The only time the machine became unbalanced was when I went against my better judgement and loaded it improperly, so that's on me. Follow the loading guidelines and it works great. The tech/deliveryman who installed it says this was his favorite washer and the best out there. Good enough for me!!! I researched this purchase for a long time and am glad I went with this LG.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! We've had this washer for about a week and a half now and it's been great. It's quiet, has a TON of features, and does a great job cleaning. The only issue I have with it is it takes quite a while to clean a load of clothes in comparison to my old school agitator style washer we got rid of. The fact that it washes 3 times as much outweighs that issue as long as you fill it. It takes no less time for a smaller load as for a full load. We love the signal it emits when the wash is done. It's a electronic jingle that's pleasant on the ears. October 16, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fine quiet machine. Nice upgrade from my old machine. i really like the 10 year motor and tub warranty. Lots of cycles to choose from but sometimes too many. You will need to read the instructions carefully. Cleans well but I need time to evaluate quality. July 8, 2013
