Love how clean my clothes get
I have had this washer for almost a year. My kids ride dirt bikes and get super muddy. So I am quite happy that their clothes come out clean and mud free. (I do use the second rinse feature for the rough days) We are the kind of household that does not have a lot of delicate clothes - mostly just dirty. For the most part, the washer is able to balance itself and uses minimum water. However, there are some things you should be aware of before you purchase this. When it is out of balance and when you select the "bulky" cycle, it does fill to the top to keep itself balanced. It still does, however, occasionally need the clothes shifted. I found if I wash towels separate from clothes, it help to eliminate the need to do that. The other thing is, the washer spins so fast that the clothes crimp up and need to be shaken out before you dry them to keep them from being wrinkled. Drying time is diminished, but they will be wrinkled if you don't pre-shake. Last but not least, it really does clean your clothes as it has a "washboard" type surface to the sides of the agitator. and I would say so much so that you will notice an increase in lint in the dryer. (i.e. a t-shirt that might have lasted 10+ years will now only last 5 years.) Good luck with your washer! I can't say that I would get anything else - I am truly happy with this purchase.

Don't buy if you have dirty clothes.
I knew we should have kept the old washer.Our clothes came out clean. I couldn't really do the large fluffy king sized comforter, but otherwise, it was fine. We "upgraded" when we had to replace the dryer. Mistake! It does not get our clothes clean. We have pets. They shed. After washing (and tricking the washer by opening the lid sometime in the beginning of the cycle when it's weighing the load -- wet clothes weigh more) & drying our clothes still come out with pet hair. We live by the beach. Our clothes sometimes have sand (we rinse or shake out first). Not only does that load come out sandy, but the next loads too. Sometimes we sweat. It smells. Our new washer leaves some clothes smelling of BO under the armpits. We use Tide, not some cheap stuff. This is all completely unacceptable. Words cannot express my loathing of this tool that is supposed to make our lives cleaner and easer. We've had it almost 1 yr. We should have returned it when we could; I tried to like it.

Love love love it!

I have had front loaders and top loaders. This machine is by far the best machine I have ever owned! My clothes come out very clean. My husband is a trucker driver that has oil & diesel fuel on his clothes all the time. Not only does it get the stain out but also the smell. It also has no problem with mud and dirty little boys clothes. Best of all no smell like all front loaders! I have read the very very fewer bad reviews and I totally disagree with them. The things that the other reviews have said I have not experienced at all. I don't have to shake anything off the clothes. I have put muddy clothes in it and the come out clean. I have washed an 11ft heavy carpet runner with no problem and it has come out perfect. My ONLY issues is I'm short and because it is so big sometimes I cannot reach clothes on the bottom. Like socks. I keep a pair of tongs to get those few items I can't reach.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disappointed

Bought this mainly for large size--we have lots of visitors which means lots of towels and sheets. It can handle a large load. But the accompanying dryer can't, so that means the large load in the washer is sort of useless. Things come out with more wrinkles than with other machines I've used, unless you set it on the lower spin cycles--so you are losing the energy efficiency of higher spin cycles or settling for more wrinkled clothes. No delicate cycle?? Whose idea was that?? Differences between the numerous choices seem meaningless. All the choices just make it more complicated to operate. It does get the clothes clean with minimal water use--something that was high on my list. Haven't had any problems with it getting out of balance like some reviewers mention as I am careful when clothes are loaded. Doesn't quite fit under a standard cabinet with doors with top of washer open so I am constantly lowering top to get at detergent and softener in the cabinet. Suppose I could move it a bit more away from the wall, but it is already farther away from the wall than any other machine I've had.

This washer is fun....

This is my 4th washer in my lifetime that I have purchased. Washing clothes is about as exciting as watching paint dry....until I got the LG top load washer. I have never seen how the inside works before and well frankly it was kind of fun watching how the washer senses the cloths and then cleans them thru each cycle. The best part is there is more room in the LG than the "other guy" without having that big center agitator. I have always had a 4.7 cy ft and still could never wash my bed quilt. I always had to go to the commercial laundry to have it done. Well not anymore. I washed my quilt and it came out amazing. Not only did I save money but I saved time and time is so precious. Thank you LG for making a daily chore so pleasurable.

Probably has more than you need but it's great!

I really love my new washer although I haven't figured out everything it can do. After having read the user's manual several times, it's still seems much more than I actually will ever use. But it's nice to know I have all the bells and whistles in case I need them. Keep in mind if you buy this product, you are buying a computer, so remember to plug into a surge protector. You don't want to take any chances. I do like the balance sensing feature. No knocking around like with the older less sophisticated models.

very happy

Very happy with the cleaning abilities of this machine. Disappointed with the outer finish. Have had the washer 3 months and already have several scratches on the top. The only thing I set there is the detergent bottle and plastic hangers.

A model that works

WT5070 is much better than the WT4870 that we returned?.twice. Both 4870s used way too much water. Uses very little water but, cleans well. It does make a few weird noises that could probably be engineered out but they are acceptable. I like being able to look at the load through the glass lid. If you have it installed, make sure they properly level the machine.

This washer gets the job done!

The washer does such a better job than my last one ever did. Its very quiet and uses much less water than my previous machine. The spin cycle gets the clothes so dry you almost don't need the drier. I love it and would recommend this product.

A $900 Mistake

The machine has a no spin cycle which I do like because I do wash a lot of cashmere sweaters and jeans. The no spin cycle works really well for this purpose. However, the machine has no center agitator and the clothes do not come out clean. It weighs the clothes so there is always too little water. The clothes come out so wrinkled and twisted around each other that I have to spend time untwisting them before putting them in the dryer. This creates a lot of wear and tear on any items. Also, there are SO many settings that it is impossible to re-set if you want to change something. You essentially have to start the whole process over. I am so sorry I bought this machine.

Amazing Machine!

Me and my Fiance bought this product when moving into our new house together. We did a lot of shopping ahead of time, and were glad we did. The reviews on this machine were good so we decided it was the best machine in our price range. we love it! It is very spacious and we can get all of our laundry done in 2-3 loads. The jingle at the end of each load is great too, so we don't have to keep walking out into the garage to check on it, and it's much more pleasant than the old buzzer that goes off.

We love this washer! we have owned it for several months now and our clothes come out great! The best feature is the high spin rate. This removes alot of the water, so our dryer has to work less hard. We are very happy with this washer.
