Questions & Answers

Wrinkly Clothes

I just receive my LG HE Top Loader. Why are all my clothes coming out of the washing machine super wrinkly? The dryer wont even get the wrinkles out. Who want's to iron underwear and t-shirts. I am using a liquid HE detergent I got at Costco.
Asked by: Jojoskima
I agree with PK on this product. It is horrible! We have tried everything that is listed in the owner's manual to prevent wrinkles and none of it works. The problem is that the spin cycle runs too fast. It's even too fast on the low speed. This washer has not only consistently wrinkled our clothes, it has ripped a few of our items apart at the seams and discolored many of them even in cold water washes. It is the worst and most disappointing washer that we have ever owned since purchasing our first one in the early 80's. We will most likely end up dumping it and purchasing a new one in order to save our clothes from being completely ruined. I really wish we had kept our Maytag washer.

About how long is the normal cycle?? Does this washer take a longer time to wash clothes?

Asked by: Turk
Normal time for a normal sized 'cotton' load with the fabric softener option turned on STARTS with 1:20 minutes (59 without FS option). When properly loaded the timer usually drops to 59 minutes after it weighs itself and starts adding water. I find it is usually pretty accurate, and as long as you follow directions for loading you shouldn't run into UE issues. Just remember not to overload it, balance your load properly as you load it and it should be accurate enough. Just wait around for about 2 minutes for it do weigh itself and you'll see.

Can this wash a large king size comforter?

Asked by: Dodunkle
I would not recommend a King comforter in this. Many are too 'fluffy' to fit properly. I do however have no problem washing a king quilt/coverlet with my sheets on the bulky/bedding setting.

Customer Reviews

4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 869.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This machine stinks to put it mildly! It does not fill with enough water to get the clothes clean. It will not dispense hot water when called for. My husband has tried numerous times switching the hoses. It is not our hook up because previous machines had no problem using hot water. I purchased this machine and paid more than any other machine in the past. I am totally disappointed and my laundry does not get clean. No hot water makes for dingy whites. We have tried several different options even going on the internet to try and figure out why the hot water does not work. I purchased this machine in February of 2016, hot water worked for a little while and after a year I no longer had hot water. Ooops, warranty over! Would not recommend. Well no matter, I see the model is no longer available. I just needed to vent because I am SO disgusted with this machine! Can't till the machine croaks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust and mold Soon after purchasing in 2012, rust appeared where the bleach is added. I repeatedly sanded, primed, and painted but to no avail. LG stated it was cosmetic and not covered under the warranty. After intense negotiation, a repair rep removed the entire top piece and found rust covering near all surfaces. Very poor construction for a steel machine repeatedly exposed to moisture. One LG phone rep stated they have no complaints regarding rust while another stated they have many. It was in such bad shape LG replaced it. The rotating piece covering the bottom of the tub broke loose and the underneath was covered with mold (picture taken after I cleaned the mold spots with bleach) along with the cushion underneath. We clean the machine with Allfresh or bleach every 2 weeks but as you can see in the picture, the cushion is covered with multicolored mold appearing stains. LG replaced the tub piece but stated the stained cushion was a cosmetic problem not covered under the extended warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats a front loader by a mile. My GE front loader died after 6.5 yrs of use, and I was glad. It would develop a funk if we didn't leave the door open & run a bleach cycle once a week. So I have developed a deep hatred of front load washers. My husband wanted to go back to an old school top loader, but I didn't want to go back to the smaller load size. This is our final choice & it is fantastic. It seems to use more water than our front loader, it is easier to load, & it is much easier to add clothes during a cycle. The cycles take a long time, but same as a front loader. The capacity is huge, more than my previous front loader. It spins very fast and very quiet, and clothes dry quick after such a good spin. It is a bit noisier than my old front loader because it actually uses more water and you can hear it sloshing around. As with any large appliance purchase, longevity isn't a priority with manufacturers anymore so we got an extended warranty. Overall I think this is a great alternative to a front loader.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy Washing Machine This washing machine only works on "Brite Whites" or Heavy Duty -- a miminum of 112 minutes. I just completed a load on Cotton Normal and one shirt didn't even get wet. Had to re-do the entire load. WASTE OF MONEY Hate this washing machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed! I have been overly impressed with this machine. I was a little nervous about my purchase after reading some negative reviews, but I have not had any problems regardless of the size or type of load I am trying to wash. The settings are easy to understand and change. The big selling point for my husband and I was the energy efficiency of this washing machine! Each load of laundry takes a little longer, but it is well worth it to save on my electric bill and help the environment at the same time. My recommendation to new buyers is to READ THE MANUAL. It explains how the machine works and gives specific instructions on how to level the machine. The levelin process took around 20 minutes, but it was well worth the time! The washer has worked flawlessly and quietly despite washing large, bulky loads (like 8 bath towels). And yes, the machine has no agitator and senses how much water to add (but I believe front load washers have been doing this for years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just stepped into the 21st Century! My older model Whirlpool decided to quit on me. My husband and I went to The Home Depot to check out their stock of washers. I was stunned to open the lid and see that there was no agitator! A salesperson overheard me say that this would never get our clothes clean, and he called me over to the desk and explained how the machine worked. We were still skeptical and said we would think about it and come back later when we've made a decision. We went home and read all the reviews and everything I could find on the LG brand of washers. We returned that weekend to purchase it and set up delivery. The first 2 loads I washed, I sat right there in the laundry room and watched it wash. I kept stepping out to see how far away I could go and not hear it. It got our clothes cleaner, it was quiet, and it even plays a tune when the load is finished. (It even makes my older dryer more efficient (darn--'cause I want to get the matching one!) I have never had dry clothes in my dryer when using the "Energy Preferred" setting, and now they are done perfectly when the cycle ends!) Anyway, I love it and we are so glad we chose the LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please read before purchasing a LG Washer I have never written a review on a product but because I have had such a poor experience with this washer and LG, I felt compelled to write it so that no one would waste their money on a washing machine that does not deliver. There are two main issues. The first is that you cannot control the water level. The washer "weighs" the load and adds water accordingly. Unfortunately, it never adds enough water to even cover your load. Your clothes are literally sloshing around in a small amount of dirty water. Anyone who has given the washer a positive review should pause their washer after it has supposedly filled the tub and take a look inside. I'm sure you would reconsider your rating for this machine. The second problem is that it is thrown out of balance continuously, whether attempting to wash a small load, sheets, etc. Simply put, this washing machine is a poor design and doesn't clean clothes properly. I completely regret this costly purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Good in Cleaning It does not seem to do a very good job of cleaning clothes. They just don't smell clean after washing. I am retired and don't do much that would get my clothing any dirtier or smellier than any other retired suburbanite. It's not like I'm performing manual labor eight hours each day and really dirtying up my clothing. I read and re-read the operating manual thoroughly. I rarely fill the tub more than half-way with clothes and never more than 2/3, so I'm not overloading. Also, I use plenty of HE liquid detergent so that's not the problem. I think that the machine just does not use enough water to do a good job of cleaning. A "normal" wash takes 37 minutes. I tried "heavy" and it took about one hour, but I don't think the results were any better. I am disappointed in the washer and would not recommend it. I complained t LG and got a generic message with suggestions, but they were not really helpful. Previously I used a 14 year-old Maytag. It was not as efficient, but I think it did a better job of cleaning my clothes.
