I have had this LG washing machine for over three years now. I did A LOT of research before purchasing it to ensure I got the quality I needed. I absolutely love my LG. I knew I wanted a top load washer without the agitator so I could maximize load capacity. This machine surprises me ever time I use it. I have filled it to what probably should have been over capacity and it gets my laundry clean every cycle. It is a bit loud, but it doesn't bother me due to the location of my washer. It has a clear and loud signal and has not failed me yet. It is a high quality machine that gets laundry very clean! I don't think one could ask for more!
