    The hot cycle on this machine is actually warm. Both hot and cold water are added to the machine on the hot cycle. I was told if I wanted to wash in hot to use bright white or sanitary. On bright whites the internal heater is supposed to heat the water up to 122 degrees. The water coming from my hot water heater is all ready at 140 so the machine cools of perfectly hot water and then is supposed to heat it back up. However my bright whites cycle is only 90 degrees. Also, I can not wash ONE set of sheets or a blanket without it getting out of balance. My whites do not come clean and are now dingy.

    Worst washer i have ever owned.

        Comments about LG WT5101HW White Top Load Washer:

        I had problems with this machine before the recall but now they are worse. No matter the size of the load, the washer will not spin out clothing. I left a simple load of dark clothing in and went to the store for two hours. When I came home the load was still rinsing and spinning. This went on for three HOURS! My water bill has increased and the dryer takes hours because the clothing is not properly spun out. I have started ringing out blankets before I dry them. We have a family of 7 this is a nightmare. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

        Drum broke off!!

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LG WT5101HW White Top Load Washer:

        I never thought I'd see this! My son had an accident at night and I put his bed linens in the washing machine. Let me preface that he has a twin bed so the load was small for this large capacity washing machine. Our machine is upstairs. We heard what we thought was the roof caving in. My husband ran upstairs and realized it was the washing machine. The lid ripped through the lock and opened from the force of the drum. It was tilted in the base and had totally broken off! This machine was just over 3 years old and installed by the builder of the home. Because we are the second owners we cannot enforce the warranty. Stay away from this machine!!

        This product has issues

        By Ticked Off

        from Katy, TX

        Comments about LG WT5101HW White Top Load Washer:

        Like many other reviews on this site, I really liked the washer at first. Over time it started going unbalanced more & more often. We heard about the recall and had the firmware upgrade done. This is when the real problems started. Like others we constantly get the 'uE' display and then the time goes back up and it repeats the last action. The worst part is the spin cycle, since once it gets in the 10 minutes left range, it faults, jumps back to the start of the rinse-spin cycle and adds water again. It does this even when you put into the 'Spin Only' mode and adds water to the tank. we can not get the clothes down to the point where we can put them in the dryer. Right now, even as I type, we have a small load of 6 shirts & 1 pair of jeans that has been going for over 5 hours! This is a big waste of money on a relatively expensive household item. It's curious how it works fine until the washer gets past the warranty period then goes beyond Fail right to Epic Fail. I have other LG appliences that I'm quite happy with, but I will never risk my money on a LG washer again. I think I'll have to replace this machine as it can't get the laundry done as fast as it is stacking up.

            Comments about LG WT5101HW White Top Load Washer:

            We have had this washer (and matching dryer) for over 2 years. Never, ever had any issues however we received a letter saying there was a recall on the washer. We called LG and our serial number was included in the recall so we arranged a service. The recall updated the firmware to the newest version however once this was done, problems started. Now if we try to wash a blanket or a medium to large load the machine stops, flashes EU to time, takes 3-4 times longer, uses more water AND then STOPS with clothes SOAKING WET. I WANT MY OLD PROGRAM BACK. So now, they have to replace the WHOLE electronic board to get the old firmware back. Whatever you do, DO NOT update your firmware because it is a nightmare and will make your washing machine unusable. Keep the original program.

            Unbalanced Error Code - won't finish spin cycle

            By boyZmom

            from Boise, ID

            Pros

            • spin problems

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Comments about LG WT5101HW White Top Load Washer:

                We bought the LG WT5101HW in Nov. of 2010. I did a lot of research before purchasing a washer. My main criteria: large capacity, quiet operation (low vibration) since the laundry room is on the second floor along with the bedrooms, and a thorough spin cycle so the clothes aren't overly wet before putting them into the dryer. I can verify that our machine is extremely quiet and produces very little vibration. All the bells & whistles are fun and impressive. However, shortly after purchasing it, I felt that the final spin did not live up to expectations and the clothes were not really as clean as my previous machine. The rest of my family (teenagers & college students) thought it worked very well so I thought it was just my imagination. Shortly after the 2 year anniversary the LG washer began to alert "unbalanced" loads with increasing frequency so that by June 2013 every load had to be reset. We called for certified service (thankfully we did purchase an extended warranty). The local serviceman was very courteous and polite. He checked it and said the display module needed to be ordered and replaced. (We discovered that this model has a recall for that particular problem as well as a problem with excessive movement when spinning). So we waited a week for the new display module to be installed. Again, the local serviceman was helpful and polite. However, the machine now won't complete the rinse cycle at all! Once the spin cycle counts down to 10, it stops, resets itself and begins the rinse cycle again, continuing in an endless loop or until the sensors throw an "unbalanced" error code and stops the machine. We can't even override this problem by using the setting for "spin only". It will still spin, count down to 10, then begin the rinse cycle again. We have had to throw dripping wet clothes (jeans!) into the dryer after spending all day babysitting the washer trying to trick it into finishing the spin cycle. On one load, I was able to wring out 1-2/3 cups of gray water from socks before putting them into the dryer. Thank goodness our dryer works well! I have seen many other posts from disappointed owners who are now beginning to see these problems develop after a year or two. It's no wonder that this model has been discontinued.

                    Clothes simple do not get cleaned. Water levels are very low leaving a great deal of the clothes dry in the wash cycle. Clothes come out with white marks all over them, and they smell dirty. This is an very expensive machine that does not do its basic function - that is get clothes clean. The "Owner's Manual" that comes with the washer doesn't tell you much, because the machine is nothing but bells and whistles to distract you - I wish LG had spent more time on engineering a good product than an expensive waste of money.

                        This washer is exactly as it has been described. I enjoy doing laundry and I have tried almost all the possible cycles this washer has to offer and it worked great every time. I bought the top loading washer because I live in Florida and I can use it to store water in case of hurricane. This washer's tub is so large that I do only 3 loads of clothes every 7-10 days - light colored, dark colored and towels/sheets. I wash my pillows and big comforters and even my saris (6 yard long fabric) without getting them wrinkled. All this...in the comforts of my home...at my convenience...saving soap, water and money...what else do I need? hmm...warranty? I could purchase extended warranty for 4 more years. I think buying this LG washer-dryer pair is one of the best investments I have made :)

                                After 19 years my washer and dryer needed to be replaced. Looking at washers and dryers today is a whole new ballgame. Everything is energy efficient, and you have to learn to wash clothes all over again. I did an extensive amount of research prior to buying my machines, and I must say it really paid off. I also spent a great deal of time reading the blogs regarding customer complaints. I took notes and went to several dealers that carried the LG model I researched; I asked the pertinent questions about the issues on the blogs and received answers that addressed the issues satisfactorily. Armed with the answers to my various questions, in June I purchased an LG washer and dryer, which was the top rated machine for the features I was looking for. I am very pleased with my washer, and I will admit it takes some getting used to. You have to learn how to load the machine and adjusting to washing durations, and how specific you want to be with your settings. Once you've mastered that - it is truly a pleasure to do laundry. And, it is fascinating to watch the machine balance and cycle. I can readily understand some of the complaints on the blogs, because the operation of these new machines does take some getting used to. However, I have no complaints at all. My clothes come out clean; they spin at a faster rate, which results in reduced drying time and I have more options available. This truly is a GREAT washer!
