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

      Have had this washing machine about a month. So far, I love it! It has some great options (bulky bedding, whites, heavy duty) that I use regularly. I like how it senses the load so it knows how much water to put in. So far, works great. Hope it lasts a very long time!

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

          I did not want to get a front load washer, so I looked at other brands to see which washer had the bigger size and features I needed in a washer. I saw this one online and then went to a store to look at it further. I am so glad we chose this washer. It is big enough to washer my quilt with room to spare. Plus I love how I can use the delay start feature. It has settings for any type of fabric. I haven't used the steam feature yet, but I think it will be one that will be very useful. I have had many types of washers over the years, but this one is the best by far.

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

                  I have had this washer for 2 months now. It took some getting used to because my old washer was the old style and worked completely differently. However, now that I am more familiar with this new washer, I really like it. It has a delicate cycle that works well. One of my favorite features is the "water plus" (which works on most settings) when you think a load may need a little extra water. The bulky/bedding setting is superb. I washed several coats and jackets for my in-laws and they washed beautifully. Most cycles do take longer than my old washer, but I like the results. Also, it is very quiet. When I first started using it, I would have to go into the laundry room to make sure it was still on!! Didn't have to do that with my old washer.

                          I wasn't so sure about a washer without an agitator. and I did not want a front loader. This does everything extremely well. Bedding, bulky, towels, delicates, sportswear and more. I am careful to dry out the bleach dispenser, and the softener and detergent dispensers. I leave the lid open for a while- since it is in a closet- I can leave it open most of the time. I wish it had more options for settings - it does have one you can set and save, but I would like to be able to fine tune some of the other settings more. The dispensers work well. I am very happy with this washer.

                                  Machine capacity is tremendous. We probably cut the number of loads we did a week by more than half. Features are great, love the fact that you can use the Allergiene Feature. Also great feature that the machine can communicate with your cellphone if there are ever any problems so you can call customer servie with the exact issue. Would recommend!!

                                      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!!
