    More room to clean
    When it comes to laundry capacity, big is good, bigger is better, but biggest is best. With the largest capacity washer available, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load! At 5.2 cu ft of mega capacity, you'll definitely have more room to clean.

CLOTHES are VERY WRINKLED

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

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.

          This is a sleek piece of machinery - sometimes the time to wash seems like it's a lot longer than you would expect - BUT you can add A LOT of cloths to one load!!! this saves me TIME!!!! and the energy efficiency is an aspect that I love!! Love the sound of the reminder that the wash is finished - it's like a magic wand being waved! ;-)

              This washer is well worth the money if you have a lot of clothes to wash on a regular basis. PLEASE read the manual and know how it works first. Do not attempt to figure it out on your own. You need to know how to work it so you can achieve maximum results with the cleanliness of the items you are trying to clean. It takes time to get used to this washer, especially if all you have ever used is conventional models/ types. I love how it spins the clothes almost dry. I love the capacity of this washer. It has cut my loads in half. I don't feel like I am spending hours in the laundry room as I used to before. The chrome areas scratch easy, so be cautious of that.

                  This machine is the absolute best washer that we have ever owned (have the matching dryer as well). The large capacity drum is incredible! Not only does it run SO QUIET, that the only way you know it is finished is when the neat little tune comes on, but it actually gets our clothes cleaner than ever. Should have made this investment a long time ago!!

                      This unit has so many features I don't know where to begin. We really like the capacity as we are able to put large comforters in and they come out very clean and fresh. I have dropped in extremely dirty work clothes and they come out looking new again. My wash room is very small and the foot print on these units is great for this small room. The unit is much taller than previous units but that is all the better so I do not have to bend too much to use. Many prebuilt programs to use or you can manual use the machine or you can save your manual program s for later use. I really like the flexibility of this unit and it conforms to my needs and use as opposed to conforming to products limitations. This product was well designed and I’m very pleased with the purchase.

                          I already had the matching dryer- was very pleased with the machine so when my washer was ready to be replaced it was a no brainer to check out this washer. It does everything it says it will do- capacity is great- one suggestion- get a pair of tongs to reach things in the bottom of the washer- it is very deep.

                              This washer has been the best we have had in 50 years. It washes colors and whites unbelievably clean. You don't know how bad the previous washer was until you wash with this one! The best at getting the water out so your drying time is minimal, plus the steam cycle brings that new look to your old favorite clothing article! I adore the "singing" end to alert you the wash cycle is through! My husband has started whistling this around the house to our dogs to signal play and eat time! Great Job LG!

                                  I love that it's sooo quiet--replaces one that was very noisy. It's huge- my clothes look lost inside the washer:) Could easily handle a comforter etc. The only drawback to the large size is that I have to stand on tip toes to reach all the clothes etc (I'm 5'2") The soap dispenser is a little awkward to use. But overall it's a great machine so far!

                                      I have two teenage boys who used to overload the washer. This LG washer can handle their clothes.
