Rated 5 out of 5 by GadgetGirl Looks good, cleans great
I've had this washer for over a month now and absolutely LOVE it! I was hesitant to purchase after reading some of the negative reviews, but I'm glad I went ahead with it. I love the clean lines and the front control panel...no more stretching and reaching for a dial or button to set the cycle. It cleans so much better than my old agitator model. I have hard wood floors in this new house and was amazed by how dirty my socks get. I put them in this baby and they came out white. No bleach. Just detergent. And WHITE. Truly amazing. My more delicate items come out unscathed and no more getting the straps of my tank tops wrapped around a stupid agitator. The drum is HUGE. I sometimes feel guilty for having such a small load...but then I realize it's not that small...it just looks that way in the enormous tub. I like that it senses the size of the load and adjusts the water accordingly. It's super quiet when it runs, which is great, because I don't currently have a door on my laundry room. I think the people who complain about it not cleaning well or leaving residue aren't following the instructions. You only use 2 tablespoons of detergent. Yes, TABLESPOONS. If you're like me, you might be used to dumping in half a capfull or more. Not with this machine. Read and follow the directions and I really think you'll be amazed at the performance of this machine.
The only slightly negative point I have is the drum is very deep. So if you're short, like I am (5'4"), you may need a step stool to get to the bottom of the drum. I don't need it every time, but if I do a load of smaller items, like socks and underwear, I definitely need some assistance reaching the bottom. But its still completely worth it to me. I love the washer and wouldn't trade it for anything. And it's not LG's fault I'm short, so I didn't take away any stars for that. I chose to get the large capacity size for my blankets and comforters.

Rated 1 out of 5 Does not clean clothes
The washer seems to work fine, but when we pull clothes out, they still smell horrible. Especially the towels for some reason. We are going to try to get LG to give us our money back since it's still under warranty and we are very unsatisfied, but I doubt they'll honor it since technically it isn't malfunctioning. And "no" I am not the only one with this problem for this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kbible2003 Awesome washer
This washer is huge inside! Love the easy to reach front controls. Could have a few more features but has plenty so can't really complain. For the price this washer is as good (better) than a front loader!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lotte19 Great Washer
I have had this washer for over a month now and I absolutely love it. I love the digital buttons and readout. There are plenty of options you can use depending on the type of load. I really like that it signals the end of the wash by playing a little tune. My clothes come out really clean. It's very easy to use, just follow the instructions which are easy to read and understand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BobbyC 2 new motherboards in 2 years
We are waiting for a part to come in. It took Best Buy Geek Squad almost a week to come out. Now we are waiting another week for the motherboard to get shipped. So we will be without a wash machine for 2 weeks. Not a good unit. Thank God we bought the extended warranty! First one was replace under manufacture's warranty. 2 times. Unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lfmoff Great top loader
This top loader is large enough for all my needs. The large drum fits bedding easily. No more sore back from bending over to unload a front loader. Love all the cycle choices! The little tune it plays at cycle end is so much better than that annoying buzz!
The only problem I have is that I don't get to use it much because my husband likes our new washer more than I do!
