Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 242 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my washer! The washer arrived within 1 week of ordering. It was in perfect condition and the delivery men brought it right into the house. I was somewhat skeptical about not having an agitator, but it works great. Clothes come out really clean & don't get all twisted up as they did with an agitator. And, of course, the huge roomy tub is great for king size bedding. The push button features are easy to use (even if you don't read the manual). This is the 3rd time I have ordered appliances from AJ Madison and have been truly pleased with the service and delivery. I will continue to use them in the future. 6/20/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product Took some adjustment. Went from older appliances to this new model. Cleans great. Also have the dryer and it does an equally great job. 11/12/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer I have been using this washer and matching dryer for about 1 month and so far I love it. Clothes come out clean and smell great. Capacity is huge, which is a must because I have a three-year-old and 9-month-old triplets! We did a lot of research before buying, and so far we are very happy with this purchase. Reviews on other top-loading washers complained about the water level never being high enough to cover the clothes, but with this washer, the water level is always good, always enough for the clothes to move freely and get completely covered by the water. I have not had any problems so far with this washer, and I have been washing everything in the house that I can think of (rugs, curtains, bedspreads, etc etc) just because I like it that much! Very impressed with LG so far! 7/6/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them! My husband and I mostly him did a lot of research and we bought the matching washer and dryer and we love them. Easy to use SUPER QUIET. Got the graphic steel color and they are beautiful. Love the light show they provide in our laundry room. I don't know about the complaints others have had but for us they wash and dry perfectly. I even washed our down winter blanket and it came out fine. I love the custom setting feature that you can save if you use a certain setting all the time. 7/7/12
