I have been in the market for a new washer/dryer set for a long time. This washer is a dream purchase. I got a great deal, it a beauty, and our clothes and especially towels have never smelled so fresh and clean. The performance is so much better than my old washer it is not fair to compare the two. The capacity is awesome and there is no agitator to get clothes wrapped around. I really love this washer and only wish it came with a step stool for us vertically challenged people because it is difficult to reach down into the abyss to get the last small items out...but I would not sacrifice the capacity for that one shortcoming...pun intended!

I previously wrote a review giving this washer a 3 out of 5 stars and have completely changed my mind. I would give it 0 stars if I could, because this washer has added nothing except dollars to my electric and water bills and increased my stress. As I write this review, I am currently going on 48 minutes for a 13 minute "spin only" cycle. Unless you have a pack of kids or run a laundry business DO NOT purchase this washer. It is NOT energy efficient, it wastes water and it's useless for small loads. The problem is the "true balance" technology. Whenever there is a slight issue with load balance, the "technology" adds water to help balance the load. I have two bath sheets in the wash set on the "spin only" cycle because they are soaking wet. The spin only cycle is an estimated 13 minutes. This load is taking almost an hour because it's too small. The machine keeps adding water to balance the load. This is where the non-environmental, water wasting issues come in. The point of "spin only" is to remove the water. The addition of water to balance is not only a waste, but defeats the purpose of SPIN ONLY. This washing machine is so inconvenient that I can not risk leaving the house to run errands or walk the dog until the machine has completed a load. The machine works fine when you fill it with as much laundry as possible, but when you need to wash a small amount (e.g. towels from drying off a dog) it's enough to drive you crazy. I would not recommend this product to anyone unless you have a lot of young kids, run a daycare or hospice of sorts. I am seriously debating LG as a choice for anything because of this product.

      Piece of Electronic Junk

      By 

      from Las Vegas, NV, United States

      Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

      After only a year and a half (warranty ran out 6 months ago) we are replacing the main control panel. If the repair was going to give us back an excellent washing machine that got our clothes clean, it would be worth it (almost). But, THIS MACHINE WILL NOT CLEAN YOUR CLOTHES. Water level is never high enough to cover the clothes and the agitation is a JOKE. No matter the size of the load, it sounds as if it were coming through the wall during the spin cycle. The cycles are so long, getting several loads done in a day is next to impossible. In summary, it has not been reliable and it does not clean our clothes. That makes it the worst washer purchase we have ever made, and we have made a few.

      But after having to replace the Motor and clutch assembly, spending hours trying to balance loads so it does not get repetitive un-blanced faults I have had it. Does not matter it is a big load or a small load. I had 9-10 loads fault in the past 5 days.

          Comments about LG 4.5CuFt Graphite Steel Top Load Washer:

          I hate this wash machine. It spends more time on UE than it does washing. It can take hours to wash one load. It will keep adding water, over and over, to try to fix the balance of the clothes, when it needs to spin. You are not able to wash a small load. If you fill it full, so it will spin properly, the clothes are not as clean. Terrible product. Do not waste your money. I would like to throw mine out the door.

              My husband and I have used this washer for 1.5 yrs and love it. The complaints about the wrinkles are understandable. You typically have larger loads than before and use less water. However if you pull the clothes out as the washer finishes, and do the same for the dryer, you will not have that problem. The machine works to perfection and we are very pleased with it.

                      I have owned a few models of wash machines but non compare to this LG WT1201CW with the Direct Drive. It has easy load with all the control push electronic buttons at your front top panel. Easy soap and rinse cup dispenser pull out. The lid has glass which is nice for allowing you to view your cycles. When my clothes come out of the cycles they come out of the spin cycle they are amazing. I cannot say enough about this unit because I have been extremely happy with it. In fact I have been so impressed with the quality of this washer that I have gone out to purchase other products LG has for the home.
