Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 99 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best washer I ever owned!! I purchased my washer about three months ago. I purposely waited to write my review until I had some experience with the washer. I love all the features on the machine. I use several of them, depending on what I am washing. This washer has a HUGE TUB. It will wash in one load what it takes a regular washer three loads to accomplish. I wash queen sheets and my blankets all in one load. It could even take more. What is a positive of large tub is also a negative for a short person as myself. I can't reach the bottom of the tub to get socks and other small items. I have to use a step stool to unload the washer. I also was disappointed that I could only use one of the "extra functions" at a time. I like to use fabric softener and an extra rinse simultaneously. The washer won't let me do that. I still love this washer and would highly recommend it. January 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a machine I had just purchased a GE top loader only about three years ago, and it died. Not only that, but it was small. I could force a king size comforter in it, but it could hardly handle it and it barely cleaned the soap out. This 5.0 LG is huge. Not only will it take a king size comforter, but there is room left over. It analyzes the load before it adds water to determine how heavy it is, or to balance it. (It spins a bit before water). Many different options. Glass door allows you to see what's happening. Plus this is by far the quietest washer I've ever had. It's off our TV room and we no longer need to crank the volume when it's both TV night and laundry night. And I'm sold on LG. Bought a fridge, stove, dishwasher, and now clothes washer. Great products. March 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SO FAR SO GOOD!!! I bought this top loader about a month ago to replace my HE Front Load GE Washer and I can tell you the difference is like night and day. The clothes are actually getting washed in this and they come out looking like new (ok that was a stretch but you get the point). There are several neat features about this machine. The one I like the most is that it calculates how much water the machine needs based on the load sensing feature. You can also manually select to add extra water by clicking the 'WATER PLUS' cycle. Also there is a soak cycle (this one sold me), which lets your clothes soak in soapy water for 30 mins (which helps loosen the stains) before starting with the wash cycle. I can wash king size bedding with ease with extra room to spare. The capacity of the machine is amazing; it balances the load extremely well during spin cycle, the clothes come out almost dry and is much quieter. My older machine would vibrate all around the room and I feared it would damage my floor and walls. I have no such issues with this. I did some research before buying this machine and I couldn't find many reviews, even consumer report has not yet tested this machine. I guess I took a calculated risk knowing the fact that CR ranks other smaller size top loading washer in top 4 spots. Also the brand reliability index is #1. The user reviews were mixed as always, some people do get unlucky with lemons. I for once have to knock on wood and call this a good buy considering it has only been a month. I did however buy 3 year extended warranty from Home Depot for a piece of mind. I found Home Depot prices to be very competitive (it was also memorial day sales event) and the extended warranty prices are the cheapest in the market. Also since I didn't care much about color of the washer, I saved another $100 bill by buying it in white. Its not like my washer is going to be a centerpiece in the living room!!!!! June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy! When this new washing machine arrived, it was fun just watching how it works. Very impressive machine. Like other reviews said before I bought it, it has plenty of space for large king size comforters, and washes everything super easy. Excellent investment. August 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST EVER............... The best washer and drier ever made. Very quiet, the only thing you hear is the splashing of the water. I highly recommend the set. plus i had a 10 percent discount coupon. December 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HUGE WASHER-LAUNDRY ALL CAUGHT UP!! LOVE IT!! I have yet to do a "full load" of laundry because this holds sooooo much! Its super quiet and does an excellent job, wish I wouldn't have waited so long to replace my old washer, what a time saver to do so much laundry at one time! The one and only thing I miss is not being able to have the water running to spot treat something before throwing in the washer, water wont run while the lid is open. But small price to pay for such a great machine. I have been caught up with the laundry for my family for the first time-EVER!! Best appliance I have ever purchased for sure! January 20, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too Many Restrictions & Doesn't Clean Well Only have had washer about 3 weeks. Don't like that you can't override water lvl (I know it's supposed to be water efficient but I think I should be able to override the machine). Don't like no low spin on a normal cycle & when low spin on delicate cycle, detergent/softener trays fill w/water after the wash has finished. Not easy to remove tray & get it back-not practical. No way of adding color-safe bleach makes me a less of a fan. White residue keeps getting on my clothes after washed (I use liquid detergent). My guess is it maybe deodorant from the clothes, which also is not coming off clothes after it's been washed. Don't think it's worth $ if it can't clean my clothes & I can't wash them the way I want. Does fit large load. If you're short you will have a hard time reaching bottom of tub. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE this machine!!! I waited a few months before writing a review for this washing machine to make sure I really could give a solid critique. I mean, who doesn't love a brand new machine in the beginning? Anyway, I LOVE it & highly recommend it. I had a top loading regular machine before with an agitator. I know several people with front loading HE machines and some with top load HE machines and none of them were too happy. The front loaders need the door kept open or they develop a smell - despite regular machine cleanings. The top loaders take forever. Well, this machine is awesome. There is no smell and I have to keep the door closed. The turbo feature speeds up my wash cycle. The tub is massive and can easily fit a huge comforter or huge load of clothes or towels. I was worried that it wouldn't clean well without the agitator and with large loads. It cleans amazingly well. It is actually fun to watch. The clothes move up and down and all around and despite the fact that you put a huge load in there, when it is finished spinning, it looks like there's room for 5x more stuff. A normal wash using turbo cycle takes 1 hour give or take a minute or two. The machine spins so much water out of things that drying time is much quicker. It doesn't use that much water but makes the clothes extremely clean. It is crazy how quiet this machine is - except for the cute little song it sings when starting/finishing a load. If I had to list any drawbacks, it would be 1) that I end up doing far less laundry because the machine can handle such big loads, which of course mean my dryer needs to dry bigger loads - I have an LG dryer that can handle pretty big loads...the catch on that is - you need to pull out the dry laundry quicker so it doesn't wrinkle - but the benefit there is we don't leave stuff in the dryer anymore & we do less loads of laundry - I'd say at least 1/2 the amount of loads I did before this wonderful machine; AND 2) it is a deep machine so it may be tough, if you are shorter, to reach the stuff in the bottom. I'm 5'8" with pretty long arms. My machine is up on a 4" platform, which of course makes it a deeper reach. I can reach everything except it's a little hard to reach my 4 year old's little socks if they are on the bottom. My solution was putting my old step exercise platform in front of the machine. If you are struggling with the decision of which machine to wash - like I did for about 6 months - reviewing every machine....well, I think you will LOVE this machine too! July 23, 2014
