Our test results showed that TurboWash can deliver. It's a special spray program that helps quicken a cycle without losing any performance.

This recommended LG high-efficiency top-loader, the type without an agitator, boasts one of the larger capacities–claimed to be 5.2 cubic feet. Our tests found that a king-size comforter readily fits in any washer with a capacity over 4.5 cu. ft. Available in white, the LG does a very good job cleaning, is relatively quiet, and scores Excellent in water-efficiency. Energy efficiency is impressive, in part because this washer's tub spins faster than an agitator's, extracting more water and shortening dryer time.
- Consumer Reports
It has large capacity, user-friendly and has good performance.

It’s a high-efficiency (HE) model that only uses a few more gallons of water per load than our main pick. The cleaning performance is pretty strong, at least with small-to-medium loads.

What experts didn't like
However, the 30-minute Normal cycle only works with about one basket of laundry, any more and you're looking at an hour.

But like many top-loaders we tested, this one isn't so gentle on fabrics.
- Consumer Reports
A bit rough on the laundry and high water consumption.

Top loaders don't clean as thoroughly or gently or efficiently as front-loaders
