LG 8.5kg Top Loading Washing Machine is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! Owned for a couple of weeks now. Works great. Clothes seeming cleaner - however previous washing machine was 13 yrs old (another LG - lasted this long. One major repair and one minor. Big reason why I went with another LG). Looks alot smaller than my old LG 8.5kg - but does the same job. Looks great and black and white theme suits my dryer. No turbo spin on eco wash though, which makes a big difference in how wet clothes are when finished. Cycles range between 40-60 minutes. No agitator, which I’ve always liked so great for blankets and duvets. Great range of wash cycles. Easily installed. Works well with our family of 3 adults, 2 kids (3 females).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good upright machine, [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Looks great, tons of room. The only problem I was having with it was washing in cold water and finding white soap stains and fluff on black garments even though it was a good cold water product, so I dissolve the soap powder in hot water before I add it and that seems to have fixed the problem. You definitely do need long arms as the tub is deep but if you want to be able to wash a good, big load then that is easily overcome. Nice and quiet, easy to remove the lint. Spins well. Give this machine a chance for you to get used to it because I reckon the benefits outweigh any doubts you may have at first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy! Asked staff of this was a quiet machine due to a medical condition & told it was, it is not. Makes just as much as my last top loader. It beeps when you turn it on, makes as much noise when washing, beeps constantly for 30 seconds to tell you when it is starting the spin cycle, makes an annoying glugging noise when draining, and plays a tune when it finishes! NOT quiet at all. Also has NO agitator in the middle which I was told would not matter add it now has the inverter control, wrong again, everything gets tangle in it. Buy something else!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not entirely happy with it I brought this washing machine a few days ago, over all I like it but some of the features good to with improving, like the weight system, I have to set it myself because it picks one that is to small, I had it full and it picked a 3. And the wool wash, most wool/ delicate items say to wash in a warm gentle wash, but you cant use warm water with the wool option Get rid of the weight option, and allow the lid to be open at the start, I use to love being able to use the running water to put sard soap into stains, and wash my hands afterwards with my last LG, now I can't

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LEAVES LINT LL OVER CLOTHES We bought this as we were moving into a new home. We have had the worst experience with this - all our towels and clothes are ruined because it leaves lint everywhere! We have called LG as it is still under warranty and it has taken them over 4 months to get an outcome. We had someone come out to "fix" it and it was all still the same. They have finally agreed to refund us only after 4 months of calling them every week. I will never buy another LG washing machine again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great variety of cycles I bought this a month ago and I’m so happy with it, it does a great job of cleaning the extra dirty clothes from a busy and messy toddler and is gentle on all of my good blouses and dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations We've had this washer for a couple of months now and couldn't be happier. Everything about the purchase and the delivery we're excellent, the guys even installed it for us. The machine itself works terrific and runs incredibly quiet considering the size of the loads.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but is it reliable? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A great washing machine with a good load capacity. The reason I'm only giving it a 3 star rating is a reliability issuse. We have had this washimg machine for 7 month and have already had to have the pump replaced . Tech told us it was a tiny piece of sea shell 2 paper clips and a small piece of wire that recked the pump. Being a busy family of 4, i was hoping i wouldn't have to go though all the pockets for such small machine killers. I feel there should be a better filter on the pump to prevent this
