    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 4.9 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Graphite Steel:

      Have utilized a number of the settings and been extremely satisfied with the results. Takes some time and use to get accustomed to settings. No longer use detergent pods as they are too much detergent which causes machine to use more water than neccesary.

                      I have never owned a brand new washer in my life. I saw this one in home depot around Christmas time (picking up my wife a new LG Microwave) and I told my wife that it didn't matter what it took we would have one. Well the funds came and I bought one. We couldn't be happier. This washer is huge. Cut our loads on laundry day in half. This washer is efficient. I am a garage door service professional and at least once a day I get some grease smeared across some clothes somewhere and after a wash in this machine they are CLEAN! This washer is quiet. With the glass top it is easy to watch it wash for a while and with it being so quiet you can actually have a phone conversation hovering over the thing and the person on the other end doesn't even know your next to a clothes washer. The more LG products I own the more I love LG. If you decide to purchase this washer you will not regret it. We bought the matching dryer too and WOW what a combo.

                          So far this washer has been working perfectly. The washer holds a lot of clothes and spins them at a high speed, so it doesn't take very long to dry them. I like the glass top so I can see what's going on inside the machine without opening the lid.

                              This washer has the largest wash tub that I have ever had. So much so that it is a stretch for me to reach the clothes at the bottom (I'm short). But, I gladly deal with it. I can wash comforters and other bulky items that I couldn't wash in my old washer. So far I am really enjoying having it.

                                  I've had the washer for about a month, and I am so pleased with it. The washer is so quiet, I barely hear it. The large capacity tub is so nice. I can wash the dog beds with ease, as well as comforters. There are so many cycle options, that I haven't even tried, but the front panel controls make it so easy to work.
