LG WT4801CW White Top Load Washer - WT4801WH

With 3.7 cu ft of large capacity, this high-efficiency top-load washer is loaded with innovative features to provide a great washing experience. The TrueBalance Anti Vibration System is designed to reduce washer noise and vibrations, while the Electronic Control Panel with LED display and soft-touch buttons help you select the right settings and cycle everytime. Bundle these with the 10 year warranty on its Direct Drive motor, and you can see that this washer is a great choice for both performance and reliability.

Key Features:

  • 3.7 cu. ft. large capacity
  • Direct Drive Motor 10 Year Warranty
  • TrueBalance™ Anti Vibration System
  • SmartRinse™ Jet Spray System
  • SmartDiagnosis™
  • EasyDispense
  • TubClean Cycle
  • NeveRust™ Stainless Steel Tub & Impeller
  • Electronic Control Panel with LED Display

Features:

  • More free time Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The large capacity (3.7 cu.ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.
  • Wash in peace You shouldn’t know your washer is on from the next room. The LG TrueBalance™ anti-vibration system is designed to reduce washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even if it's on another floor.
  • Get wise It's unlikely you'll experience any problems with your LG washer, but if you ever do, the SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.
  • So Fresh and So Clean The TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets to clean the wash tub, and high spin speeds to remove excess moisture, helping to keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.
  • Count on it When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.
  • Smarter in many ways Saving water doesn't mean compromising cleaning power. At least not when you have the SmartRinse™ Jet Spray System. The tub quickly spins as a powerful water jet sprays into it, forcing the water to penetrate through the clothes for effective rinsing.
  • Easy as 1,2,3 No need to watch the clock while you wash. EasyDispense™ takes the guesswork out of doing laundry by allowing you to pour in your detergent, bleach and fabric softener all at once, while releasing them at just the right time.
  • No Snags Instead of a bulky, inefficient agitator, this washer has a low-profile, highly-efficient impeller. And both the NeveRust™ impeller and wash tub are made of durable stainless steel, avoiding nicks that can snag fabrics.

We hadn't been in need of a washer for years, so when we started researching I knew we wanted to save money and energy. We knew about HE but I was skeptical, not knowing if they would work as well as they say. Not a fan of the front loaders, but open to checking out others. We were about to purchase a different HE with an aggitator when we saw the HE LG! Top Loader. Not much more in price than the one we were about to purchase, and I liked the technology and features I saw. Capacity bigger and no middle aggitator. It's always a risk when you purchase a big appliance. We were very impressed with the information we were given at the time of purchase and thought it would be a good washer. Well, it's a GREAT washer! We've had it over a month and have not had one issue with it. It was hard at first to get use to the fact that it measures the water per the weight of clothes, I was thinking, they'll never get cleaned. Not, so, it knows and it does a great job. Clothes are clean and it spins the water out beautifully. No more LONG drying sessions. I have done light to heavy duty clothes and they all come out VERY CLEAN! The thing I had to get use to is very LITTLE detergent. Love that, such savings. I would recommend this washer to anyone who asks! Thanks LG! Oh, and it plays you a little song to let you know when it's done!

On many types of washes there is simply not enough water for clothes to rotate, leaving the clothing on top out of the water for almost the entire cycle. I add 2 to 4 quarts of water to the load, as needed to fool the washer into thinking there is more wash than there actually is. This gets me enough water to do a proper wash. Since washing clothes is the sole purpose of the machine, I must downgrade the rating as it fails at its only function. I would never recommend this washer to anyone.

Product is unreliable

By Summerbmd

from Sylmar, CA

Comments about LG White High Efficiency Top Load Washer:

I have had my washer just over a year and half and have had major malfunctions twice already. Once was within the first year warranty where the entire Main Power Board went out and now I am outside of the warranty and the drain pump is broken. I am extremely unhappy that I purchased this product for LG's known quality and received a washer with a constant need of repairs instead.

      This is a good washer as long as everything goes well. As soon as the codes start going off it gets annoying. Especially the Le code.

          We tried a front load and after 3 years decided to go back to a top load. There were not many to choose from but The LG was priced right, looked sleek, and had a great warranty. It has been 1 year since we purchased and have loved it since day one. Great product LG!!

              This washer cleans very well. It is sometimes hard on the clothes. Synthetic work out clothes can get snags and large sheets can get tangled up. I do mostly medium sized loads and have filled it quite full on occasion. It does seem like there is not enough water sometimes but clothes have always come out well. I do wish there was a spin only cycle. Most all washers have that option and I don't know why they didn't put it on this one. It is approx 1.5 yrs old and have not had any problems so far.

                  I have owned this washing machine for about 1 yr and I am very pleased. Clothes come out clean and I have had no problems with it. I like all the available settings and I especially like the time display. I know how long the cycle will take. I like the glass lid even though at first I'd spend a lot of time staring at the clothes being washed. It is really efficient. I didn't think it could clean clothes with very little water, but it does. I like the fact that it is HE top loader because unlike front loaders there is no strange/mildew smell. The soap dispenser and the bleach dispenser retain water so I do have to dry them after I wash.

                      It's a sad thing when a product quits working before a years is up. My wife is now doing laundry at two neighbors houses until the parts are available to fix the control panel which should be next week. I made this purchase based on "high quality" reports of LG products and I hope I've not made a mistake...

                      I would never have bought this washing machine if I had realized it has no "Spin only" feature. It never occurred to me that a modern machine would be made without this capability. I find it extremely inconvenient and "Rinse & spin" is no substitute.

                          This washer and dryer has the disadvantage of having downward slooping tops. The next problem is the drainage system leaves water standing in the laundry detergent tray and standing water at the bleach dispenser. This is such a pain. I am going to buy a much better washer. Enough of this poorly designed machine.
