Hands down, this is the best washing machine I have ever had, used or owned. I specifically worded it this way because for 15 years I was in the Army. I (and my family) moved a lot. And we rented a lot of places as well. It wasn't until I got into government housing that we finally bought a washer.

This washer, balances the load itself to avoid it from rocking during the spin cycle. It runs quietly and uses less water, yet clean as well if not better than my previous washers. Additionally, it spins the load so that the clothes are dryer, so my dryer works less at drying the clothes.

The detergent slot is set up so that the water runs through it when first fills. Same with the fabric softener with the rinse cycle.

If you don't believe me, as certain reporting service rated it a "best buy" and it is the highest rated of all top-loading washers.

I had to order mine, but it arrived in about 4 weeks and am really glad we got it.

This machine is the worst piece of JUNK- I've owned it for 1.5 yrs and can not wait to dump it- impossible to just throw a load in and leave- you are guaranteed to go back and see the load is unbalanced- cloths are never completely cleaned when it's finished ( which can take days) if you actually have to leave the house and not babysit this piece of junk!

Buyer beware do not waste your money- LG's website and another site show this as a great machine- do not believe it.

I'll never buy another LG product!

Comments about LG 4.3 cu. ft. Top Load Washing Machine:

I love this washer most days when it is working well. Some days though I want to throw it on the curb. When it actually runs correctly and finishes it's cycle it works well and cleans the clothes pretty good. But some days it will just keep unbalancing, most times it will alert you and stop running so you can adjust the clothes and continue. Other times it will just keep filling with water and try to balance itself and when you look it will say unbalanced but it is still running, these cycles can take like 3 hours if your not paying attention to it. It will just keep adding water and then drain and see if it is balanced over and over again until either you manually stop it and readjust clothes or it eventually continues cycle on its own. It does seem to clean clothes fairly well and can run large loads.

    I will never ever EVER purchase anything LG makes. The quality of their product was horrible & there service was even worse. Don't buy this unless you like throwing money away & listening to the manufacturers excuses.

      Comments about LG 4.3 cu. ft. Top Load Washing Machine:

      I'm extremely unsatisfied with this washer. The cycles are way too long. The time left on the screen is not accurate. It will say 11 and you'll come back 20 minutes later and it still has 6 minutes to go. What't he point then? Doing a small load is impossible. It will unbalance every time! And by small I mean having the washer any less full than 3/4's. I have about 8 beach towels that get washed constantly because I have to add them to loads so that it won't unbalance.

        I bought this machine when it first came out with the matching dryer. I will put my clothes in there but cannot leave the machine for very long. It will sometimes not rinse out or drain so you have to open the lid and resort the clothes and start all over again....it sometimes takes 3-4 hours just to wash 1 load of clothes.

          Owned less then 2 1/2 years and has broken down 3 times. The mother board at 3 months. The clutch assembly snapped and wasn't covered at 17 months and now we think the mother board again although LG keeps telling us to try other parts first at 50-100 a part each not including labor.lg is no help

            Comments about LG 4.3 cu. ft. Top Load Washing Machine:

            Our old washer finally broke down and we had to invest in a new washer. After carefully reviewing pros and cons as well as pricing options, we arrived at the LG and we are so happy we did! It is big enough to wash even bedding without a problem and it has so many options for cycles and temperature that you remain in complete control of your laundry.

            I am pretty tall so reaching inside to pull clothes out is easy, but my sister is very petite and she has a hard time reaching all the way into the tub. Adding fabric softener into your wash is very easy and it is very efficient in the use of energy. Definitely recommend it.
