    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.

          This is our 3rd Washer in 10 years, for 3 different places. Second one from LG. One of the great brand which delivers a great product every-time. Quite, large and cleans the clothes efficiently. As other's have noted that they have balancing issue. None here, Used, Hot, cold, Delicate cycles do a great job. Best of all it is fun to watch per my son when the magic is happening.

              Comments about LG 5.0 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Graphite Steel:

              I have owned several washers over the years and they all do about the same thing wash clothes. The question is do they keep running and are the clothes coming clean. 2 years ago we moved into a new house which came with new appliances, one of which was a whirlpool washer. The clothes never seemed to come out clean and fortunately we purchased the extended warranty. Within 2 years we had to replace the washer as the warranty company decided that it was too expensive to repair and bought us out of our contract. We purchased the LG washer which also uses less water but the clothes are clean, holds more clothes and gives me more options on the cycles. I am sold on this product cannot imagine not having this machine.

                          I bought this washer (and the matching dryer) because this was one of the few washers getting good reviews. Most high-efficiency washers seem to have a real problem getting clothes clean. This one does that most basic task very well. It also washes a ton on clothes in a single cycle; it is quiet; and it wasn't that much more expensive than other models. I highly recommend it.

                                  I was in the market for a new washer and dryer. My last one was destroying my clothes. I like that it's an open bin. It's huge and I can easily fit a king size bed cover and other things in it. The front control panel is great because I am short (5'1"). There are plenty of selections for washing clothes. I especially like the oxi-sanitize setting. I have a senior dog and was her piddle pads on that setting. It's super quiet. If you are short like me, you may not be able to reach the bottom of the bin. It's not an issue for me because there are plenty of things I can't reach.

                                      There is nothing about this washer that I do not like. It is so quiet and runs so smoothly. I love the large tub and all the ways to customize the wash. I love the glass lid and the fact that it folds down so that the washer can air out. I have never really had an opinion about a washer -- a washer would just do its job. But there was a lot of thought put into the technology of this washer to make it user friendly. I would definitely recommend this washer to anyone.

                                          Our one month old LG washer is wonderful! It runs quietly and you can tell that it is high quality. Our old washer sounded like it was straining to do a large load, but the LG handles large loads without any problems.

                                              This LG washer/dryer is a genie out of a carton; forget the lamp version. It performs every laundry task beyond the fairytale three. With multiple choices, less liquid and quiet performance ending in a tune, it delivers super clean and softened clothing. Sporting a designer look with a heavy weight performance, LG proves laundry wishes can come true.
