          Nice and quiet and it NEVER gets off balance! It does get clothes clean!!! Some may say it don't have enought water. But this machine knows what it is doing. I love my LG wash machine so much I went back and bought the matching gas dryer with stream! A great investment. This tub is so big I can never fill it up. With the old washers even the biggest tub was to small. Big bedspreads for a king size bed, fits just fine with room to spare. It's worth every penny!!!

          problems

          By molly

          from Calgary, AB, Canada

          Comments about LG 4.7 CuFt Top Load Washer:

          Better make sure you read the manual thoroughly before use. This machine does not use enough water during a cycle! They design washers they claim are good for the environment because they use less water. However, in the manual they suggest selecting up to two extra rinse cycles if your clothes has too much soap build up! AND they suggest selecting extra water as well. I have definitely ran into the problem of my clothes starting to smell a little musty, due to soap build up. Even when using very little liquid detergent. Make sure you clean the tub monthly by selecting the clean Tub button. AND use extra rinse AND extra water. With all the extra water, AND the extra long time a cycle takes....not so efficient i'd say. Oh how I miss the old washing machines. I would NOT recommend this washing machine.

              After researching different washers in January, we decided this machine was the one for us! We are extremely pleased with the cleaning as well as the capacity. I believe I have washed a dozen pairs of jeans and khaki pants in one washing! ( I can't wait to get the matching dryer!) our clothing is softer and dare I say fluffier!! Even the lint in the dryer lint screen is fluffy!! Several reviewers complained about the washer--out of balance or wrinkles. You MUST read the manual thoroughly before using!! Pretend there is an agitator in the center when loading. As you load the clothes, think of balancing the weight. Place heavier items of the load in the bottom. Fold pants and jeans and such to help prevent tangling. In three months, I have had only two loads go out of balance. It just takes a little time ... don't dump and run. Regarding the wrinkling issue some reviews complained about.... You do have the ability to alter the preset wash settings! For clothing I use a medium spin and when I move the items from washer to dryer, I give the item a shake before it goes in the dryer. Those two steps eliminate wrinkling! Yes, I highly recommend this washer! It can handle your laundry needs and treat your clothing with care. Read your manual and follow the instructions and you will be happy with your washer, too!

                  Comments about LG 4.7 CuFt Top Load Washer:

                  I'm writing this because I agonized over buying this washing machine. I read every review and while most were positive, I had trouble with the few negative reviews that were extremely negative. I got the impression, you either love it or hate it. Areas of concern were: - Out of balance spin cycles - Water levels not correct - Clothes not cleaned. - Takes too long - No waterproof items I had it for two weeks now and nothing is out of balance so far. The water levels seem to work perfectly. My clothes are clean, but it does take a while. It's about an hour to an hour and a quarter per load. Since I knew it took extra time, there was no shock for me. I actually prefer the washer to take longer than the dryer. It means the clothes are already folded before I put in the next load. My guess is there are a few lemons out there, or people are just angry because that is who they are. I have not tried anything that is waterproof. If I do, I will turn off the spin cycle and let the dryer work a little more. I also noticed that many of the negative reviews were for different washers. Maybe angry users are just bashing all of the machines. I don't really know. I do know that this seems like a great washing machine so far. The washer holds a ton of laundry and is quiet. The only time I hear it is when the spin is starting up and slowing down. It makes a few minor noises as it sloshes the clothes around, but I only hear that if I'm in the same room.

                      I bought the washer/dryer combo last Novemberand I absolutely love it. This is the best present I ever game myself. This machine has cut down my ironing by 90%. It is easy to use, quiet, saves water. I highly recommend it.

                              Have had the Waveforce for 1 1/2 years. The model we purchased was recalled for motor/electronic problems. Was corrected.... apparently. However, now cannot wash water resistant clothing now, i.e., some sport coats. And... the tub gets out of balance/uneven VERY EASILY which often delays the wash. One wash for towels took more than two hours to complete. Because of the imbalance problem, feel as if I can never walk away from the machine while it is on. Would not purchase this machine again.

                                  This has many great features and is easy to use. Only thing about it I do not like is the soap and fabric softener have to be place in a bin in the back under the lid. It would be a much easer if there were placed in the front. Not under the lid. Otherwise, we love it.
