Wave 4.7 Cu. Ft. White Top Load Washer - Energy Star is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 341.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok washer, but would not recommend I bought this washer because of the reviews that I read online and the sales person's input. I wash a lot of clothes and was very disappointed to find that this washer does not have a hand wash feature. (despite so many dial selections and the sales person saying that the delicate was handwash). Additionally, I find that I have to select the soak feature to get a comparable result to my previous washer. It's great that it conserves water and has many dial selections. However, I do not find that it washes as well as I expected. I also do not like that having paid a premium and have had to return to washing items by hand when the label calls for it. Very dissappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again I have had this machine for about 3-4 years now, and I will NEVER again buy one like this. My loads are CONSTANTLY unbalanced, causing the machine to drain, and refill, try it again, and then beep at me to fix the load, only to do it again 5 minutes later. It doesn't seem to matter how large my load sizes are, and it happens on each setting that I have tried so far. Also, I'm finding that my clothes are not coming nearly clean enough. I like LG products, and as far as reliability goes, the washer and dryer have not given me any technical issues, but I am extremely disappointed with this machine, and considering the cost factor...not cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of a kind We have had this washing machine for a little over two months now. We've had several washing machines in our lives and not one of them compare with this one. This washing machine is so quiet that I have to walk down the stairs and physically look at it to see if the load is done. Our clothes come out so fresh and clean and we can hardly believe how little detergent and water we use. I believe this washing machine will pay for itself in no time at all with the money we save on detergent and water. This is the first LG appliance that we have had and from now on I will replace all of our appliances with LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife loves these! After two and half years of using a brand new lower quality washer and dryer that came with our new townhouse, my wife wanted a new set with more options and ones that actually cleaned the clothes. She absolutely loves this set and calls them her "Cadillac" washer and dryer. They are very easy to use and they do everything she wants them to do. The clothes come out so much better than they used to with the old machines. She can't stop talking about them and shows them off to everyone who comes over. They handle even the king size quilts we have with ease. They are so quiet you hardly know they are even running. All around excellent machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my new washer and look for it to be my last I did a lot of research about washers and was very pleased with my purchase. The key is to know what the washer does and does not do. I read about "clothes being twisted" and "it doesn't use enough water", but if you follow the recommendations you should not have any problems. I use LESS detergent because I am very careful with the measuring, not like before when I just poured it in. I am very pleased with the cleaning. The only con is when it is out of balance there is no audio to indicate this, only a signal on the panel. But, that happens only with extremely heavy loads like several pairs of jeans. I am a fan of LG products and recommend this washer!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware..... Have had the Waveforce for 1 1/2 years. The model we purchased was recalled for motor/electronic problems. Was corrected.... apparently. However, now cannot wash water resistant clothing now, i.e., some sport coats. And... the tub gets out of balance/uneven VERY EASILY which often delays the wash. One wash for towels took more than two hours to complete. Because of the imbalance problem, feel as if I can never walk away from the machine while it is on. Would not purchase this machine again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice product pros-the size fits my home. Like the color. I can fit most anything in the tub & the normal cycles work nicely. It runs quietly & the tub does not bump against the sides nor does it become unbalanced. cons-Cleaned 1 white load but found 2 items having makeup still on them. My old washer was better, it had an agitator. I do love agitators for this reason. Height & depth of the machine, its hard for me to reach small items in bottom, i am 5'1". so they need to make them a slight bit shorter keeping short people in mind. Some cycles take to long and soak cycle does not work real well - & front load washers have too many issues

Rated 3 out of 5 by from problems Better make sure you read the manual thoroughly before use. This machine does not use enough water during a cycle! They design washers they claim are good for the environment because they use less water. However, in the manual they suggest selecting up to two extra rinse cycles if your clothes has too much soap build up! AND they suggest selecting extra water as well. I have definitely ran into the problem of my clothes starting to smell a little musty, due to soap build up. Even when using very little liquid detergent. Make sure you clean the tub monthly by selecting the clean Tub button. AND use extra rinse AND extra water. With all the extra water, AND the extra long time a cycle takes....not so efficient i'd say. Oh how I miss the old washing machines. I would NOT recommend this washing machine.
