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

      We purchased our new LG 5.0 washer a couple of months ago. It is our second one. We won't ever buy another brand or type of washer. It is so easy to use! We also love the color of the graphite steel. It matches our appliances in the kitchen. The machine works like a beast on every wash cycle! We are extremely confident that all our clothes are getting thoroughly washed! If you're looking for a new washing machine, here it is! Enjoy!!

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

          I've had this for about 6 weeks now and am really happy with it. I regularly wash what would have been 2 loads in my old washer, and the clothes come out cleaner and fresher. Love that I can wash a king size comforter AND the sheets in one load!!! My only complaint is that after a load, the detergent tray has water in it (normal), but it is hard to pull out and replace tray to empty the water. There was nothing in the manual about this, so I was afraid to pull it out the first few weeks because I thought the plastic would break. Overall, a great purchase!

                          I've had this machine for a couple months now and it's great. The barrel is huge so I'm doing fewer loads than I used to, and it cleans well with relatively little detergent so that saves money too. I haven't tried all the features yet (there are a LOT) but I still love this washer.

                              Honestly, my wife was insistent on having a gray colored set of washer/dryers. As I'm sure the manufacturers have figured out, they can get away with charging a lot more just to get this color (only a few market choices#. Anyway, that's the only negative #price). We've had it installed for about a month now and using it regularly. It takes a little getting used to the HE models in terms of how long they run but this model is very quiet and seems to do a great job cleaning. Looks great as well.

                                  I love this product. It has a variety of cycles that works for my lifestyle. It has the largest wash size I have seen, I can wash my king size blanket in it no problem. A special feature it has that I like is for washing workout wear. Both the washer and dryer have settings that will allow to protect the elastic in your active clothing. I would recommend this product to anyone. It's a little on the pricey end, but you get what you pay for with this product. The install was quick and easy as well.

                                  While others say how they love how almost all of the water is eliminated from the wash cycle, to me, that translates into VERY WRINKLED clothing. Pants legs are wrapped around themselves like a spindle. With my old washer, I used to wash and hang, and could avoid ironing most of my casual clothing. With the LG, I now have to put my clothing into the dryer to get out the horrid wrinkles, which I do not like to do. If I simply hang the clothes out of the washer, they would require ironing, which takes more time that I would like to spend on my laundry. For this reason, I would not recommend this washer.

                                      After having a standard washer for 10 years this is definitely the cats meow. My clothes have never been quite so clean and so less stressed than they have been now. Haven't tried out all of the awesome features yet but so far VERY happy.
