Excerpt: Bought the 5170 three years ago. After a year the bleach dispenser stopped working properly. Our manual says you may remove the bleach cover to clean. Ours cannot be removed. We have called the help line several times. Get different answers from each operator.
Excerpt: Have had this machine for a few years. Bleach input is rusted all around. When it's supposed to be washing, it makes a noise but nothing is happening other than a slight movement of the drum -- slight means less than an inch. It doesn't move.
Worst purchase mistake of my life - run away from this machine!

Summary: I purchased this washer 2 years ago. I was looking for the largest capacity that I could reasonably afford. I also wanted to save water. I was replacing an old agitator-type GE model that was still going strong after 17 years.
Summary: I have had this washer for over a year and have not experienced the problems expressed in some of the other reviews...never goes out of balance, does not twist my clothes, etc. This LG washer is the fifth washer I have owned.
Excerpt: Great reliability, sometimes stalls due to uneven loads with large blankets, but otherwise runs smoothly and quietly. Have not had to repair yet in 2 years. Only drawback is that it seems to use a lot of water compared to other styles.

Summary: I didn't think it was possible to hate an appliance as much as I hate this appliance. This machine HATES me. I cannot do a single load without having to rebalance the clothes a minimum of 5 times. It's ridiculous, I consider myself a smart person, but this machine is not having any of it!
Excerpt: Those of you with young children understand how critical it is to have a functional washing machine. Well, I have 2 kids and this washing machine has made laundry the bane of my existence. I have owned it for over 2 years and it is terrible.

Excerpt: I got both the washer and dryer and I couldn't be happier. They're quiet and give me tons of options. I love that once registered, lg will e-mail tips and random things about your product. I smile every time I hear the end of cycle chime.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality

Summary: I too have had much difficulty with this washer. We inherited it with a home purchase and I have found it very frustrating to do a load of laundry. With three girls - two being teens I am constantly washing clothes.
