Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
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 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
