          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.

                          I used to do my laundry in one day. Now with this washer, it takes me two days. But I love that I can pause the cycle to add clothes due to being a top loader.

                                  I was pretty excited to finally be able to buy this washer. I had been wanting it for a little while. Once it was delivered, yes, it was a little intimidating. Just from looking at it, I was wondering if I made the right decision after all. Once I read the manual and got the hang of it, it's very simple and convenient. The tub is large enough to wash comforters which is awesome. I'm really happy with our purchase.

                                      Doing laundry is fun with this washing machine. We love to look through the window on the top and watch the wash in progress. The tub has a huge capacity. It was a treat to put my queen size blanket in it and have plenty of room. It is attractive. It was initially intimidating with all the bells and whistles, but once I looked at the manual I realized it is very easy to use. We like the soft close feature of the lid. It uses less soap and water and the load sensor is a nice feature.

                                          This product meets all expectations and then some. It is user friendly, quiet and efficient. I can now compare its performance to European machines which, for me, were superior in quality and performance to American products. My laundry day is no longer a chore.
