I ABSOLUTELY HATE HATE HATE THIS WASHER!!!!!!

By Marquerre

from Brooklyn, NY, USA

Comments about LG 4.1 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

I thought I had purchased a great washer machine but boy was I wrong. Not only does this machine take almost 1.5 hours to wash a load but once the machine goes off balance...the wash can take as much as 2 to 2.5 hours. What I hate the most about this machine is that when the machine is unbalanced, instead of some type of signal or a pause in the wash, the machine will begin to fill up with water and restart to whichever cycle it was on when the machine became unbalanced!!!! IT IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING EVER. This machine waste so much money because since it will just refill each time it becomes unbalance, your water bill will increase and energy is wasted as the machine is a longer wash cycle. The machine is extremely sensitive so it will go unbalance for the smallest thing!!! I HATE THIS MACHINE!! I wish I could get my money back!!!! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MACHINE unless you want to waste water and waste energy...Your bills will increase!!!

      Disappointed

      By ifonly01

      from IL

      Comments about LG 4.1 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

      I should have done more research prior to purchasing this washer. The list of what you cannot wash in this washer is almost as long as the list of what you can. You cannot wash rugs, raincoats, etc. It takes over an hour for each load (much of this time is with no action being taken in the wash process since the clothes are just sitting in the bottom of the drum), so what money you may save in water is used in electricity. You are also supposed to only put items of similar weight in each load. So I used to do about 6 loads in about 2 hrs. I now have to do about 8 loads in over 8 hours and visit the laundromat with items I am not supposed to put in this washer. The user manual does not address all features or explain the different water temp settings (like what is the difference between cold and tap cold?). You have to babysit the washer because it goes out of balance. There is a melody that plays when the load is finished, but you cannot hear it if you are in another room or on another floor. There is no reason to purchase this washer that I have found.

          Love this washer! Clothes get really clean, and they are washed very gently. I find there is even less lint in the dryer! The tub is very deep, however -- which is not a bad thing -- holds a lot. But sometimes it is difficult to reach in and get one wayward sock -- so I keep a long, plastic kitchen utensil handy to reach in and help! That works great. The washer is very quiet too.

              Comments about LG 4.1 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

              I've not had any "balance" problems with the washer and my clothes come out clean and fresh. I agree that if you are not tall, you might have issues with getting the socks from the bottom of the washer. I'm 5'7" and have to stand on my tip-toes to reach small items. The only feature I miss is a regular "soak" cycle. I'm used to soaking clothes for several hours or over night, but when I use the soak cycle, the water does not stay in the machine, even if you power it off. I'm sure I'll get used to that. Overall, I'm very pleased with my new washer.

                      I love this washer! I researched for months before making a purchase, and I'm so glad I chose this washer. I needed a washer with some kind of vibration control, since I don't have a basement. This washer is so quiet you hardly know it's going, even when it's spinning at a billion revolutions per minute (slight exaggeration). It took me a while to figure out just how to load things so that it wasn't always getting unbalanced - especially when washing sheets. But even when it got unbalanced, it didn't shake my house like my old washer - it just kept adding water and spinning, adding more time to the wash.

                              It seems to be doing a good job,I admit it is probably just to technical for my liking-all the smart stuff and sensors and I am used to having control of the size of load and change of temp at times to finish filling a load. My biggest problem is I use Borax to start and have to remember to let it fill partially then add liquid detergent .Also if you are short it is hard to reach into bottom(I am 5'3" and have to stretch). It is a nice machine and I will adjust to it and learn more how to use it and relax and let it do it's job.

                                  This washer is a pain in the butt. I'd estimate over 50% of the loads require attention due to an unbalanced condition. I'd read some reviews about this prior to purchasing and just thought they were doing something wrong, machine not leveled, whatever, but I found that these reports were accurate. Sometimes it takes several clothing redistributions to get something the washer likes. Sometimes loads that appear to be spinning fine will decide the load is unbalanced after several minutes of spinning. Other times loads that make the washer visibly shake finish without a problem. If you like playing with your washer for hours while trying to finish a load then this is the washer for you. Otherwise move on. BTW, the washer does clean wonderfully, if/when you can actually get it to finish.
