I was excited to get a nice new high quality washer and dryer from LG and because I spent about 2x more than a regular washer dryer I expected to not have any problems. First the paint corroded around the area where you put bleach into the washer.... ok bleach is corrosive, feel like for the price that this should not have happened. Not covered under warranty. Second I notice holes in my sheets, on the pant legs of my sweats, etc. I don't trust this machine to wash my clothes without ripping them. This does not happen all the time but does happen on occasion. If I had to do it all over again I would get a basic washing machine with no bells or whistles. Keep it simple..... The matching dryer has had problems with the buttons not working, replaced the buttons once under warranty. Again, get something simple with turning knob, not a computerized touch button... not worth the headaches.

Top Load Convenience / Front Load Wash
We were skeptical moving from the high end front load washers to the new top load washers but we are very impressed with the wash quality. The features of these units are impressive and the steam feature has been great for us.

A Great washing machine
I have owned this machine for 7-8 mos. I have read hundreds of reviews on many machines and finally decided on this one. I am so happy I did!! Very easy to get the hang of all the buttons and settings. It holds alot of dirty clothes, it fills the tub with plenty of water, (read some reviews about not enough water in tub) my machine fills with water, I don't over stuff the tub which you never should if you want clean clothes.
Everything comes out very clean without the agitator, some clothes which had old stains came out clean again.
Occasionally clothes will become wrapped around each other. Yes, you need to take your time and shake clothes out before placing in dryer. They do spin at a high rate of speed and get wrinkly when taking them out, but if you shake them out before placing in dryer you should be ok. I also use the medium setting for spin and that helps alot with not many wrinkles after drying.
You can't place blankets and shirts/jeans together as it can become unbalanced as I did once. But then again, I didn't use the bulky setting which could have been the problem. Yes, I washed my king comforter alone in this, no problem.You will love this machine.
I researched for months and was so hesitant once I decided on this one, almost worried sick as this appliance gets a real workout. I am so happy with my purchase.
I also leave my lid open to dry out any water left anywhere I can't see, I also lift the detergent compartment out and drain water out of it or it can become slimy. I have NOT used any cleaning solution tabs they say to use as there is no odor. Again I can leave my lid open.
If I have to give a Con about something it would be: Your not suppose to wash anything waterproof, mattress covers, bath mats, winter gear etc. yes disappointed but definately no deal breaker, and the top of machine gets fingerprints.
I hope this helps someone.
