Great Washer....for less
Date:January 16, 2012
"I did a lot of research before I replaced my older Amana frontloader. The Amana lasted a whopping 4 years before the control panel went bad. I narrowed the selections down to this LG 4801 and a LG 5001. I was going to buy the 5001 with the 6 Motion Technology because I thought the 4801 didn't have it since it is not advertised on the washer....but through some research, I discovered that the 4801 uses the same exact washing technology as the more expensive 5001. According to LG, it has the 6 Motion technology even though it is not marketed for that model.
This washer produces great results. It does use a little more water than our old front loader, but no more mildew, smells, leaking seals, etc. I did purchase a 5 year extended warranty with this washer,which I normally don't do, so I have peace of mind for at least 5 years. Great washer.....and one other thing.....I purchased it on sale for $499, which is terrific. The dryer matches this unit and it is great, too."

Broke within 2 weeks
Date:January 16, 2012
Best Features: quiet, efficient, easy to use
Cons: When it breaks, door is locked. Breaks within 2 weeks of buying.
"Worked great initially. However, within 2 weeks of being setup my washer lost power during a wash cycle, locking the door with the clothes all inside. LG technician informed me over the phone on the day that they were supposed to come out to fix it that a new circuit board will be needed and it sounded like this has happened before. Over the next 5 days of waiting for the part with no update from the technician I then called to find out that it would take 2-3 weeks to get the replacement part. I then called Geek Squad who were much more responsive. Someone out the next day, part ordered for 6 days later. Meanwhile, my clothes are soaking in dirty, soapy water and presumably the washer is getting a nice mildew scent."

Great Machine
Date:January 15, 2012
"I was apprehensive and shopped around. I liked the look of the machine and the fact that it was a top loader. It replaced my 22 year old Sears washer and I am really happy with the LG."

Great washer
Date:January 15, 2012
Best Features: Washes large loads and sets the water levels on it's own.
Cons: so far nothing!!
"This washer is a pleasure to use. No need to set water level, it does it on it's own. It has many settings that can be customized to what you need.
So far this product is great......
