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:

      This LG 4.3 cu ft Top load washing machine is an overall great washing machine and we have had it for many years. They are known to be very well made and hold up for years of using them. I love that they are quiet and they have a great performance time when washing the clothes. The design is great and I love the way it looks very classy and efficient with washing the clothes and the water use. The overall durability is great because I have had it for many years and not had problems with it. Though over time the inside can rust and you may need to just keep an eye on that if it gets worse to get a new one. However, overall it's a great washing machine to have and I would not reccommend a better one because of how well It has performed for me. They are easy to use and the energy efficiency is great because it does not use a lot and it also keeps things flowing and in a decent time frame.

      Huge machine makes laundry efficient!

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

      I just purchased this LG top loading washing machine three months ago. Previously, I had owned an LG front loader, and I was very dissatisfied with the moldy smell that was always in the machine. This is a huge machine! I have a family of seven, so we generate a lot of laundry. I can fit very large loads in this, and it cuts down on my laundry try. It is user friendly and easy to use. It has many different options regarding settings, and I really appreciate that it has a speed wash for loads that aren't so dirty. I LOVE that the lid can be left open, because it helps my machine stay fresh and not develop a nasty smell. I have noticed that if I put too big of a load in, the clothes do not get as clean since there is no agitator. It runs quietly, and it does not take up too much space. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this LG machine. I would definitely recommend it and buy it again if given the chance.

      LG Top Load Washer

      from Undisclosed

      See all my reviews

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

      I bought the LG top loader initially because it was compact enough to fit comfortably in a one bedroom apartment without it taking up more room than I had. I hate the washing machines that usually come with apartments so buying this LG washer was an absolute necessity. I am happy to say that it got me through apartment living brilliantly as it did not make my energy bill sky rocket and it fit snugly into the designated washer dryer area.

      Cleaning Time
      Since it is a smaller built unit it does each load of laundry exceptionally fast which makes it convenient when I want to wash something and be able to wear it the same day.

      Performance
      Well done on the performance of this machine. I like that it isn't extremely noisy, it's actually quite silent which is a huge benefit when you're living so close to other people. I can do a load of laundry any time of day without worrying about disturbing anyone in the vicinity.

      The Best Value in Washing Machines

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

      I recently purchased this washer after my old one just did not clean well any more, as well as was smelling awful. I love LG products, and this did not disappoint. Firstly, it is a beautiful machine, very well designed. It is very easy to operate--the controls are intuitive and I love having very specific options to choose from as far as soil level, temperature, fabric type, etc. This washer has it all. It is very quiet to operate and the results so far have been fantastic. I honestly noticed that my whites were whiter after I used the cycle that was specifically for whites. My husband noticed this as well, without my even having to ask him (which is saying something). The tub is quite deep and holds a lot of laundry....it may be challenging for a shorter person to reach all the way down inside, as I am 5'6" and I have to extend my reach to get every item. I'm also looking forward to lower water and electricity costs! I would highly recommend this washer.

      Great buy on a good budget.

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

      Overall this thing does the job. My clothe always come out clean first try and installation was a breeze. The compact size is amazing for apartments and it doesn't make too much noise so I can run it whenever I want without waking people up.

      Energy Efficiency
      Even now looking back at my water and energy bill from before I bought my new washing machine I can definitely see the difference. I live in an apartment so the fact that it doesn't blow a fuse when I turn it on is amazing.

      Ease of Use
      There's not too many buttons so it's easy to use which is great because I rarely have to change the settings when I wash different loads.

      Design
      I'm all for minimalism when it comes to heavy duty appliances. I like the sleek design it's not awkwardly shaped and bulky. It's a crisp white so that it blends in with the white walls and almost disappears.

      Durability
      I can't really stuff it like I want however for it's size it does hold a lot more than you'd expect.

      Pretty Decent....Good Buy

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

      I was looking out for a washing machine within a limited budget, tried to get a front loading at this budget but unfortunately couldn't find a one with a good brand & all features I wanted. So I at last opted for top loading.

      This is indeed one of the very good product from LG in this price range. Though I would hope that it would have had more features but as I said at this price I heart this washer. As soon as we start the washer, it makes a very nice noice to indicate that it started. Once it is done it plays a cute little song which indicates that the washing is done. The cap of the washer is pretty tidy & doesn't slip. It also has the break control which prevents the lid to shut down quickly with a bump.

      The clothes gets washed very clean & since it is a top loaded it saves a lot of water & detergent. We can wash lot many clothes at once which are hard washed & clean the stains.

      All in all I recommend this washer...

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

      I love the glass top and all the features of this machine. It cleans and freshen my laundry so much better than the front loader it replaced. The capacity is amazing and the sleek design fits perfectly in our laundry room. I especially like the pull out style of the dispenser for the detergent and fabric softener which makes it very easy to fill.

      The Best

      By 

      from USA

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

      This is one of the best investments I've ever made. After my old Washer wore out I came to Viewpoints to get reviews. Thank you fellow viewpointers. I decided after I looked at the reviews and my budget to get the LG. It is worth every penny. I can wash more cloths and save energy. Again it's a little pricey but I'll save in the end. I've only had it 4 months and am completely satisfied. It is a great machine for small spaces which I have. I also like the design, modern and looks cool. I plan to buy other LG products in the future. The cleaning time is amazing. It only takes one wash where with my old machine it took two washes to get the whites done. I find myself using less detergent which saves me money. I also have the dryer as well and they work together like a charm. So if anyone ever doubted this product please consider it. LG made a believer out of me. I though big name useless product, but to my surprise it actually works. Thank you for taking the time to read this

      Great washer for the money

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

      When our last washer finally broke for the last time, we were really bummed. It was a top loading energy efficient washer and the clothes came out amazing. We used cloth diaper with both of our children, so we needed something that cleans really well. We also, did not have a huge budget. I wanted another top loading energy efficient washer, and this one served that purpose. It was affordable and it is certainly efficient. There are a few complaints, however. Even when not overloaded, heavily soiled clothes still come out quite dirty, sometimes even chunks of food stuck to them. I am very thankful that my children are no longer in diapers and I do not believe this washer would be able to wash them well enough. Another issue that I have a problem with is that it does not allow you to wash any waterproof type items. This would include diapers, bath mats, etc. This is extremely inconvenient. Again, thankfully my children are no longer in diapers. However, I am not sure how I am supposed to wash my bath mats, indoor welcome mats, shower curtains, etc...going to the laundromat is less than desirable. It also becomes unbalanced very easily. Any time I wash a blanket or comforter, I have to babysit the laundry because the blanket needs to be shifted by hand several times throughout the cycle.
