              I bought this wash in 2014, its been good, not great. Right now, problem is that when I wash a load of clothes, the washer leaks and leaves a pool of water on the floor under it. Other irritations are the out of balance problems, which cause it to start the cycle over and over, until you stop it and manually move things around. Also irritating that on some cycles you can't set water to hot. Not sure why they would limit customizations to any given wash cycle.

                      Comments about LG 5.0 CuFt Top Load Washer:

                      I bought this washer a year and a half ago (8-14-14 and was happy with it. Then, about 3 month ago I noticed there had been a small leak at the rear of the machine and seemed to be off balance. Called the store where I bought it because, fortunately I have a 5 year extended warrantee, and set up an appointment through their service provider. He came out January 14, 2016 and said tub cover and suspension rods were faulty and they had to be ordered. Well, it's taken until March 7th to get all the parts. Some came about a week earlier than that. I had called the repair service provider several times regarding the hold up and kept getting told that the parts "are on backorder". One time I was even told that LG was not manufacturing these individual parts because it was a new machine. Since 2014, I doubt it. I was fortunate I could still use the machine because the leak was intermittent and just a little water. While I'm waiting another two weeks now for the repair service people to come, my machine totally breaks down. I started a load and left the laundry room. Came back and lights on the control panel were flashing and bells were ringing. I couldn't get the machine to turn off so I unplugged it. Plugged it back in, but the same thing - flashing lights and ringing bells. No error code. Got my wet laundry out and called the repair service to add this to the service call. Then I realized I should have gone through the Service Dept. of the store I bought it from. So I called them, they walked me through unplugging the machine, waiting about 5 minutes, plugging back in and the same thing happened. So now it will be about 10 days before repair service can even come out, then they will have to order a part because even though I asked if they could bring a control panel with them I doubt they will. I just hope it doesn't take another 2 months to get this machine fixed. And fix it I will, this time. Can't afford a new one. But I really do think that this machine should have lasted longer than a year and a half. I've had several brands of machines in the past and none ever needed a repair this soon. You can bet I won't be buying an LG again. Just hope the repair of the washer will last awhile and that the LG dryer doesn't break down next. I thought I had a good, dependable product. Guess not.

                      This is the second washer of the same model. It was exchanged for a another new one due to leaking water and service could not find leak. Well this second new one is doing the same leaking as the first. I will never buy another LG product.

                              I bought the older model of this washer 5 years ago with the dryer. I'm glad I bought the extended warranty. I had to have the clutch replaced after I only had the product for a couple of years. Then about a year later it broke again. They couldn't repair it because the part was no longer available so the insurance I had sent me a check to replace it with the newer model. I wouldn't have bought the same product but the washer and dryer are in my kitchen and I wanted them to match. I've only had the new washer for about 3 months. So far so good. The only issues I have are how long it takes to wash a load (most loads are 1 hour or more), and when you clean it once a month it runs for (2 1/2 hours).
