Rated 2 out of 5 by Shirlo E6 code
After researching in Consumer Reports, this LG WT4870CW washing machine was highly rated. We bought this machine and its matching dryer. We purchased it at Home Depot in Oxford,MA We bought their five year extended warranty on both products and thank goodness we did. I enjoyed this washing machine but after only two years of ownership, we are getting an E6 code which the manual says is a "clutch error" We called Home Depot and it will be 5 days before a repair person can come and fix our machine. My former washer, which I used for 17 years (with an agitator), never had repair problems. I washed rubber backed rugs in it and in this washer you cannot. Would I buy an Electronic HE washer again? ABSOLUTELY NOT, Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Don1949 Excellent product for the money
The LG washer is an excellent product for the money. It runs very quietly. Love the end of the cycle reminder. Instead of being some harsh electronic buzzer it plays a little tune. The washer does a good job of getting our clothes clean.

Outstanding washer. Only complaint is that it is about 30% slower than the old machine. Worth the wait.

Love, love love this washer! I had a front load washer for 15 years and got used to the hovering helicopter sound every time it spun. I can barely hear this washer. It spins the clothes better too, they are nearly dry when i put them in the dryer. The only negative I found was with an extra large load, it didn't clean as well as my old washer. But when I put on the extra rinse/water plus it cleans just as good. I like it also has a soak cycle, which can't be done in a front loader. I bought a top loader because I thought I didn't need the large capacity anymore since all the kids are at college most of the year, but I think this washer is bigger than my old one! Overall, I think this is a great washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrBill Great washer and a good price
Bought this washer about a month ago after replacing a 15 year old front loader. My wife wanted a top loader and we found this one after looking at a number of brands. We have not been disappointed, It has a large capacity and a variety of cycles. Most importantly it gets your clothes clean without wearing them out. The cycle length is normal for a high efficiency washer. Yes I recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dar64 Hate, hate, hate my WT4870C washer
The only good thing about this machine is being able to wash my king size comforter. It will not wash small loads.....unbalanced every time and refills with water. I have to squeeze the water out.
This is the most frustrating machine I have ever had. Wish I could afford a new machine with an agitator. Don't buy this machine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mykie This product doesn't clean very well.
This product cleans like a cheap washing machine. I like to use the Arm & Hammer pods. This washer does not dissolve the pod leaving soap on the clothes. I have to rewash the clothes with an extra rinse cycle. When I use the liquid dispenser the clothes don't get clean. Again I have to rewash the clothes. I am now using the Arm & Hammer pods, but dissolving them in warm water in a shaker bottle and then pouring that mixture onto the clothes before starting the wash cycle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KatyMommie Stain care, ha!
This machine does not remove stains, not even simple stains that have been pretreated. So frustrating. I'm not expecting it to remove red wine from a white shirt, but you would think something as simple as dirt (just plain garden dirt from my 2yr old wiping her hands on her shirt or sitting on the concrete outside), chocolate milk or banana (with a little dirt mixed in) would come clean from pretreating and washing. I have had better luck socking clothes in a sink with some oxy. But in reality, who has time to soak every stain from 2 kids BEFORE putting it in the washing machine. I thought it was maybe the detergent, however I have tried 3 different kinds, and still nothing. Not what you expect when buying a new washer described as "stains used to be a pain."
