          Comments about LG 4.7 CuFt Top Load Washer:

          Purchased the Washer and Dryer together and have loved the decision since. It takes me nearly half the amount of time to do laundry and my clothes come out very clean. I was hesitant about having no agitator in the washer and realized shortly after my first wash that these were very efficient at getting the job done. I think he bad reviews on this page are silly most complaints that I have read looks like they did not read the directions on the correct settings for their loads. This washer spins fast enough to virtually dry the clothes so much that dryer times are half as long. Great product!

          Very Poor Machine

              Comments about LG 4.7 CuFt Top Load Washer:

              I am sorry to say that this machine is very poor. We have had it now for 2 months, and have tried multiple wash loads of various sizes and fabrics and various settings. Unfortunately, it seems EVERY time, we do not have a full 3/4 + tank of very common clothes, it alarms UE on EVERY spin cycle. The spin cycle seems to be over sensitive no matter what you are trying to wash- i.e. towels, kids load, delicate, blanket, etc. I bought it because of the large capacity, with the option to be able to wash blankets, however, any other wash load, it does not like. As well, I do not find that it gets the clothes as clean as a front load or other style machines. I am sure, LG will need to fix this issue in the software and change the sensitivity of the spin cycle- when they do, it will be a nice washer I am sure, but right now, I would be cautious of purchasing.

                  Purchased 2 previous top load machines with similar features and didn't like either of them.... so retuned both. When the last be returned the delivery man suggested that I look into LG units. So I found an open box discounted unit and so I purchased this one. Love the way it works...have not had any mechanical problems with unit nor the way it cleans. If you read the instructions on washing ..the unit does a great job...now off to get the dryer.

                          We love our new washer! It has taken a little time to get used to the settings, but we shopped around a long time and are very pleased with our purchase. The capacity is unbelievable and our clothes are clean and stay new looking- even sweaters! Strongly suggest you try this washer.

                              I have owned this washer since early November 2013. Love the machine. Just took a long time to get to me. Luckily I was not in a hurry as we ordered in plenty of time for it to arrive at my new house when completed. Did not happen. Just beware and order in plenty of time to make sure you have it when you need it. Otherwise I am extremely pleased with the machine. Love the way it looks and works.

                                  I've been very impressed with this washer so far. The different washing options makes it easy to use efficiently. I was worried about not having an agitator, however my clothes are just as clean without one (the size is also a big plus as well). Then to top it off, it looks great. Keep up the good work LG!

                                      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.

                                          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.

                                              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.
