    A revolutionary spin on laundry
    LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

          Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

          I was very hesitant to purchase a top load HE washer because of the balance issues, and researched different makes and models before choosing an LG . I am glad I did. I have been using my LG washer for 3 months now and have experienced no balance issues or any other problems. Just make sure you level the machine, and load your clothes balanced all around the drum. You cant wash rubber backed rugs, but over all I am very pleased with this purchased.

          Very Displeased With This Washer

          By Malala

          from North Carolina

          Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

          I have been experiencing some issues with this top load washer, specifically during the spin cycle. The washer has detected an out of balance load on ALL of my laundry washes. This seems to only happen during the spin cycle, prompting it to redistribute water to try and balance the load. My problem is it dosn't just do this once, it will continuously do this during a wash load until its right, wasting way too much water. This past month my water bill went sky high. I've sat in front of my washer during a session, just to see what it does, the spin cycle lasted about an hour(maybe more) because of the uE error; total time was about two hours! During this I also saw my washer display 29 minutes remaining then suddenly jump down to 22 and show the uE symbol and add water and jump up and down between numbers over and over. I've watched videos on how to load the washer and tried to wash like items together, to no avail. I've had this washer for almost a year now and I agree the first couple months were great, but its just gotten worse.

                  I just washed a load of clothes on my new LG top loader. I love this machine not only does it look good, it also does a great laundry. My friends and family say it is the best looking machine they have seen. It is so easy to operate and the controls make it seem like a game. Keep on keeping on you are doing a great job.

                      Right after I bought this washer (and the matching dryer) Consumer Reports said that customers complained that the load unbalances This has happened to me twice since I got the washer about 6 weeks ago. I tried to wash a sleeping bag plus towels plus a lot of clothes in one load and the load unbalanced.The other time I tried to wash a comforter, a mattress cover, and 3 sheets in one load. The load unbalanced. I would advise not putting too many bulky items in the same load. Otherwise, I really like this machine: it washes really well and quietly. It takes me about 1 hour and 40 minutes to do a big load, including towels, from start to finished drying. It is not complicated to use-- I just choose my cycle by pushing one button and that's it. Even my teenage son enjoys doing laundry now.

                              I've been using this new washer for about 6 weeks now. So far so good. It seems to use less water. The features are interesting- sensing the weight and size of your load and filling with water based on that. I've been cautiously watching the spin cycle to see if it gets out of balance. I've not had any issue with it but then my loads tend to be small to medium size. It takes some getting used to after using my old 1990 model! Appearance wise it looks quite stylish if you care about style/design.

                                      This machine has a MAJOR downside to it. I've owned both the washer and dryer set for a year now and I've noticed that more often than not, the washer becomes unbalanced and must refill the drum with another full load of water to correct itself. Because of its auto "balance recovery" design, the machine will not alert you of an unbalance but will automatically refill its drum with fresh water, agitate the clothing, then spin empty again to try to correct it. The machine will continually do this over and over until it feels that the clothes have become re-balanced, which results in a serious, SERIOUS waste of water!! I will balance the clothes equally upon initial loading, but because there is no center agitator to keep them somewhat in place during the wash cycle, they jumble together and then fall randomly as the drum spins empty--RESULTING IN THE UNBALANCE! It's so frustrating!!! More often than not, I'll expect the load to finish in the "Quick Wash" 35 minute time frame, but when I go downstairs to check, I often discover that the machine has shut down mid-wash because it was unable to correct its own unbalance. Then I have to restart my wash, which causes WAY more water use and WAY more time! What is supposed to be a quick, 35 minute efficient wash ends up taking over an hour (sometimes two!!) depending on how many times the stupid machine messes up. I hate this washer! These new ones look so fancy and efficient but it's not until you've stopped using your old one that you realize how poorly the new designs are. I miss my center agitator, and I wish I had never bought this washer! The dryer, though, is wonderful.

                                      I loved this machine when I first got it. Now it is constantly having balance issues. I do live alone and sometimes do not have a "large" load of laundry, but it should perform just as well with a smaller load. It has even occasionally had bad balance with a full load of towels. I don't understand it!!!! I talked my parents into getting one and they have the same problem. They hate it! I have even stopped the machine and ring clothes out myself just because it will continue to show bad balance. What can I do to correct this? I can't imagine other people do not have this issue.
