4.5 Stars see below
The reason for the 4.5 stars is we had this machine for a little over a week and the electronics went bezerk. Lowes replaced the machine a week or so later which was a pain.
Now, we have had this working washer for about a month now. I am absolutely amazed how clean this washer gets all of our clothes, towels, etc. I, like many were very skeptical about a washer that uses so little water as I was afraid things would not get clean, or would be filled with soap residue. I was wrong in being skeptical.
The machine has many setting options available and I have tried them all. Every setting works great.
The type of laundry soap you use makes all the difference in the world as well. TIP: Use the Consumer Reports best liquid soap if you can find it, it's called Wisk Deep Clean Free and Pure (its in a white bottle). The combination of this top rated machine with the top rated soap equals fantastic results.
The matching dryer will be delivered tomorrow as it was on back order.
I highly reccomend this washing machine. Best I have ever owned.

Quiet, better than my frontload
Before purchasing this washer, we had a frontload. Now we are so glad we are using a top load again. This washer is great at spinning the clothes to a damp feel. My concern was that a top load would not spin the clothes as well as my front load. This one does an even better job and we no longer have a mildewy smell when we open the washer door. Easy controls, economical, larger tub, quiet, quiet, quiet. Thank you LG for getting it right!!!!

Great washer but....
I love this washer. It's extremely quiet, has lots of specialty cycles, load sizes, water temps and spin speeds. It's amazing at how little water it uses per load, and without an agitator, seems strange to watch the drum move the clothes enough to clean them. The chime at the end of the cycle is really cute.
The only minor complaint I have, and why it didn't get all 5's, is that on some cycles, the clothes don't rinse completely during the rinse cycle and there are pockets of wash debris in the folds of some of the clothes. I don't do large loads as it's only me with laundry, and I use only HE detergent at the recommended level, so I would have to say this is from the small amount of water it uses per load. I usually set the machine for an extra rinse to get rid of these pockets of debris, which kind of defeats the low water use.
However, I do love the washer for 90% of the loads I do, and I love the myriad of cycles, temperatures, and speeds. I would recommend it, I would just say to keep your loads small.

This washer can't wash small loads
I'm so disappointed in this LG washer. I like to wash my black dress pants by themselves and I can't without having to clear the UV error quite a few times. If you want to wash a few items this washer is not for you. I wish I could bring it back. You have to always clear the error and move your clothes around and hope it starts again. I tell everyone not to purchase this washer, nothing but trouble.
