Comments about LG 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:
Used agitator washers forever, last one lasted 15 yrs, decided to replace with this washer. Regret this purchase. Washer constantly off balance, followed all directions to no avail. Clothes wrapped around each other at end of cycle. Shirt sleeves are becoming stretched out. Clothes so tightly wrapped have a difficult time even attempting to unravel before pulling out. Way too long to finish a load. Do not recommend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the worst purchase I have ever made. The washer starts counting down the time remaining, does numerous rinse cycles, and the time goes up, then goes back down, then goes back up. I've already had the mother board replaced once and now it's doing it again. Even when I set it on spin cycle only it spins for 5 minutes then starts filling with water! This is "energy efficient" machine is costing me more money than its worth!!!

I had this washing machine for about 18 months and it would always get off balance.(UE) It is the worst washing machine that I have ever purchased.
Update ; After 3 years
from Woodbridge, VA, United States
Now, the washer - WT4870CW sounds like an old steam train. It is loud and noisy. It takes about 5 hours to complete a cycle of washing. It wasting water and re-starting many times. It is full of trouble now. I will advise anyone who buys this washer to get an extended warranty from the store. It is a matter of time that you will regret buying this washer. Where are all the good and long lasting washers our parents used to have? Now , there is no washer that is better and reliable.
Leaves pet hair and white residue on dark clothes
Don't buy. I've run tub clean and had service to no avail. Other reviews like this one. It may be high efficiency but notify out have to run extrA rinse llmthe time and still pick hair off your black jeans. Even if inside out ! Use HE DETERGENT. DONT BUY THISONE.
WORST WASHING MACHINE EVER
from CRANBERRY TWP PA
THIS IS THE ABSOLUTELY WORST WASHING MACHINE- IT TAKES HOURS TO DO ONE LOAD- CONSTANTLY UNBALANCED- LG DOES NOT HELP AT ALL- DEBRIS IS COMING BACK INTO THE MACHINE-I USE HE DETERGENT OF COURSE - TUB CLEANS TWICE A MONTH AND STILL DEBRIS IN MY MACHINE-IT TAKES HOURS TO DO ONE LOAD AND DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES! NEVER AGAIN- I HAVE HAD PANELS REPLACED A NEW DRUM REPLACED AND IT STILL DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY-
the worst washer I have had in 50 years
By anonymous 2
I bought my washer in Aug. 2013 Had problems with uneven loads constantly. After research I discovered there was a recall on the main board and had it replaced in March 2015. Low and behold the problems are back with more new ones. This washer does not clean clothes, takes hours to complete a cycle and uses a lot of water. I would not recommend buying this machine
Love this large capacity washer!
from Millstone Twp NJ
I have had this washing machine for over 2 years and every time I use it I am so glad I bought it. It has a large capacity and it is great for washing blankets and huge loads of clothes but it works just as well with small loads. I don't have a problem with "uneven loads" since after I load the clothes in the washer I reach in and "fluff" them before I start the washer. I just reach underneath and pick them up a little to even them out. The clothes always come out nice and clean. The only down side is that it is not good for waterproof mattress covers as they may rip. After this happened to me once I had some success washing them in a laundry bag on low spin. The deep drum which makes it possible to do the large loads may make it difficult for someone shorter than me at 5'3" to reach the bottom. For me it is not an issue. It is easy to use, looks great, and runs reliably with no problems.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Piece of JUNK
from VA, United States
I hate this wash machine. It is a waste to time and money.
I don't see the problems
from Jacksonville, FL, United States
I purchased this washer on 11/5/2013 and it has been two years now. I used to get the code UE, but then I realized I was an idiot and packed everything to the top and had an offset load. You can't throw everything and the kitchen sink in there and except it to be balance. Yes it is technology and it does have a load sensor, but from my experience of loading hovercraft and ships in the Navy. You have to equal the balance and make sure just like an old type of washer. You make sure the load is correct. 641 reviews of 5 stars vs 40 reviews at 1 star. After reading all these reviews, this piece of equipment is too engineered for most of you that do not know how to use technology and load a washer. That is all.
