I recently purchased this model but my water does not seem to reach a temperature other than cold for any cycle. What are the temperatures associated with each cycle. I think this might not be working correctly. I only get cold water regardless of the water temp I choose. Extremely disappointed if I can't get warm or hot water.

Answer: 
The machine will warm your water for you if necessary. However, it may be helpful to run hot water at a nearby faucet in order to help it get to the right water temp. Also, make sure that your hot water fill line to the washer is turned on fully.

Answer: 
Yes, but they recommend HE products. Also, remember that the machine needs to be "told" that you are using fabric softener for some of the cycles.

Yes, for a while. Obviously, not when the cycle has gone too far to get the new clothes clean. Like most newer machines, you will have to wait for it to unlock to add new items.

Laundry may ONLY be added to the load at the proper time in the wash cycle. When the ADD GARMENTS light is illuminated, it is safe to pause the cycle and add more items to the load. If garments are added when the ADD GARMENTS light is off, the washer will not adjust for these items which could result in poor performance and/or fabric damage.
1. Press the START/PAUSE button to pause the
washer.
2. Open the lid after it unlocks.
3. Add your additional items.
4. Close the lid.
5. Press the START/PAUSE button. The cycle will
resume after the lid locks.
Be advised that the ADD GARMENT light is an indicator only and is not selected by pressing the SPECIAL USE button.
If the washer remains idle for nine minutes after pausing the cycle, the water in the tub will drain...IFV

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 319 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst piece of junk i ever owned DOES NOT CLEAN MY CLOTHES. LG tech support is useless and rude! Will never buy another lg product. STAY AWAY FROM LG! The picture below is what clean sheets look like after washing August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A really great value and an excellent washing machine. HUGE capacity!! Puts my old front-loader to shame! Top rated value on Consumer Reports and I completely concur. Replaces a 10 your old front loader which cost easily twice as much. HUGE capacity, but still high efficiency and adjustable load size. Clothes seem cleaner, loads take less time and the washer is quieter (except during the fill cycle). Not you Grandma's old top loader and it has no agitator. Just make sure the clothes are evenly distributed for balance. Smoked glass top lets you peek inside. I would recommend it! August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Loved it, at first. Very disappointed now. We have owned this washer and dryer set for 3 1/2 years. The washer is beautiful, has a nice big tub for clothes, and has always performed well. We purchased it because Consumer Reports listed it in the top 3 back when we bought it. BUT... My wife informed me that she was seeing rust around the bleach dispenser. Upon further inspection, we realized that there was quite a bit of rust on the inside of the top metal casing. Upon even further inspection, we realized that the washer was dripping into the tub, and looked like the water shut off valve was not fully functional. Fortunately, we had purchased the 5 year warranty through Home Depot. However, that was also a very big hassle. It took them over one month to get our washer back into working order. For the last several days I was calling daily and demanding that we get a new replacement unit. That didn't happen, but they somehow got the correct working parts to our repair man. But beware of the warranty - they are allowed to use "refurbished" parts. The new replacement part has a more scratched up stainless steel lip on the top glass door than our original. Also, the soap dispenser is much more worn than our original. It works, but I feel like my "new" machine is not anymore. Had to use a laundromat twice during that time (for a family of 5) and used $75 (of which warranty only claims to cover $50 - I have yet to file for this reimbursement, so I hope they will do the right thing, but not counting on it at this point). Felt like I only got attention from Home Depot warranty service when I started calling daily and pushing for replacement of our machine. Even so, I could never get anyone with the warranty service to "own" my situation. Never could get a last name or a direct phone number /extension for follow up. Requested a service manager call several times, but they would not read the notes and would call my home phone and leave a voice mail instead of calling my cell phone as I had requested, and then leave the generic Home Depot warranty number only. Bottom line, my previous washer lasted over 15 years and never had a bit of rust. Anyone I talk to in the family has never experienced this with any washer. But if you start reading the reviews here, you'll see that many are dealing with this. Don't let the beauty of this machine lure you in. I regret our purchase. Thankful the warranty finally has us back up and running, but still regret this purchase. April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Washer The washer works exceptionally well, with easy to understand controls and is quite. Price was very competitive when compared to the competition. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Of machine Takes somewhat getting used to. Will review in 6 months August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So efficient! I love all the alternatives you have for washing normal clothes to baby's and to delicate and then you have the sanitary for towels beautiful as I always buy white towels my towels are WHITE like always this is my second washer. The same style July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best washer I've ever owned! This washer was recommended to me by a customer while I was shopping at Home Depot. She was absolutely correct. Best washer ever! June 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stop! Do not buy this washer! The EPA has made the manufacturer regular the amount of water. It may be a top loader but don't think you are going to get much water in the huge tub unless you are washing on the bedding cycle. Clothes do not get cleaned and the cycles last forever! I thought I was getting a quality product but I wasn't. I have had it repaired twice already. The detergent tray had to be replaced because it would not empty out. Water left in the tray that had to be dumped before using again. Also the switch to turn on the unit fails all the time. I have to let it set for at least 15 minutes between loads to get it to turn on again. Repair came out and said nothing was wrong but it continues. Now it is out of warranty. Great!!! April 2, 2016
