I recently purchased an LG top load, Turbo Wash machine. The one with the front control panel.

I have watched it through nearly every cycle and have yet to see or understand what constitutes a turbo wash action like their front-loaders have. Other than that, the machine works great.

Had one a few years ago. Loved it. Quiet,efficient, fun to watch and big capacity. I use Gain and it always kept the washer fresh smelling. A farmer friend needed a new washer for sanitizing their goat cheese cloths so I sold it to them for $550. The next time I saw him,he was bragging about how much he liked it.

The only difference on the TLs is that all rinsing is done via spray rinsing. The changes to the main wash are minimal.

Most time on these machines is wasted on filling for deep fills due to the enormus tubs.
A lot is wasted on balancing and spinning.

TurboWash thus saves a lot of time as there is only one deep fill (wash) and one balancing and spin period that incorporates all the rinsing via that blue nozzle at the back and a dispenser flush.

Select the Fabric Softener option and watch the cycle time almost double.

At least that is what I was abled to gather.


This describes it pretty well.
