LG 4.9 Cu Ft Mega Capacity Graphite Steel High Efficiency Top Load Washer - WT1701CV

Wash large loads quicker than ever with the LG 4.9 Cu Ft Mega Capacity Graphite Steel High Efficiency Top Load Washer - WT1701CV.

LG also added their TurboWash® technology, which lets you finish loads up to 30 minutes faster with this washing machine. If you encounter any issues with your washing machine you can use the SmartDiagnosis™ feature that has been included to assist you with figuring out the problem, by simply using an easy app. This LG washer also features a mega capacity of 4.9 cu. ft. that lets you do fewer loads. Let laundry become less time consuming with the LG Mega Capacity High Efficiency Top Loading Washer.

Features:

  • Size Matters

Looking for a washer that fits more laundry in fewer loads and still fits your space? LG’s got you covered. With 4.9 cu. ft. capacity, LG’s mega capacity top load washer is right at home in the space of a regular washer. So you can fit more, wash less and get back to more important things.

  • A Revolutionary Spin On Laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

  • Fast Forward Your Laundry

Tired of spending hours on end finishing your family's laundry? Now, those days are gone. LG's revolutionary TurboWash™ technology allows you to save 20 minutes on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance!* It's like pressing the fast forward button on your laundry.

**Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton/Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8-lb loads, front load washers only. Excludes other LG manufactured products. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.

  • Get Wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer, you don't have to worry. 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.

  • 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 limited warranty.

I have never owned a brand new washer in my life. I saw this one in home depot around Christmas time (picking up my wife a new LG Microwave) and I told my wife that it didn't matter what it took we would have one. Well the funds came and I bought one. We couldn't be happier. This washer is huge. Cut our loads on laundry day in half. This washer is efficient. I am a garage door service professional and at least once a day I get some grease smeared across some clothes somewhere and after a wash in this machine they are CLEAN! This washer is quiet. With the glass top it is easy to watch it wash for a while and with it being so quiet you can actually have a phone conversation hovering over the thing and the person on the other end doesn't even know your next to a clothes washer. The more LG products I own the more I love LG. If you decide to purchase this washer you will not regret it. We bought the matching dryer too and WOW what a combo.

We made the mistake of purchasing this inferior product. It looks nice and the front mounted controls are nice, too bad they are completely useless. It has a feature called "load sensing". This non by-passable feature determines the amount of water required by twitching the dry load then spinning the dry load doing a tarot card reading, clicking the whole time. Then it either spits out enough water to dampen the load and proceeds to grind the damp load coated with the partly dissolved detergent in the tub or it will overfill the tub, floating the load well above the agitator. The laundry remains floating until it pumps out all of the gallons of wasted water out. Your clothes remain dirty but now they are dirty and wet. We have tried all of the settings and maybe one in ten loads actually gets washed somewhat clean. If there was anyway we could return this and get something with less voodoo in the features we would in a heartbeat. We need to buy another machine but it is against my nature to throw out something months old that costs hundreds of dollars. It would probably work if it would let you determine how much water was required but it doesn't allow that.

      I have had my washer now for 3 months. If I could get rid of it I would. No one informed me that I would have to purchase something to get my clothes out of the drum! I have tried standing on a stool to get them out but my arms just are not long enough! I think this is wrong!!!

          We bought this LG washer to replace an old Kenmore that quit working. We were worried that having the controls at the front would be a problem, but it has not been. The washer works great, and it is fun to be able to look inside to see each stage of the washing process.

              Been about 9 months since purchase. Couldnt be happier. Both washer and dryer are working beautifully. Front panel on washer will be scratched on first day. Not sure why this happens as we tried to be very careful no to scratch it.

              Comments about LG 5.0 Cu Ft Mega Capacity White High Efficiency Top Load Washer:

              This washer works well. The clothes come out very clean and there are a lot of options. Within the first two weeks, an LED bulb did burn out, but ABT is sending out a repair person for an easy fix. I love the glass top so that I can monitor the wash cycle.

                          I have had this washer for a few weeks and at first I was very happy with it and was ready to give it a 5-star rating but I have been noticing it is leaving soap scum stains on my clothes so I have to run my clothes through another cycle to get them clean. Otherwise it seems to be a good washing machine - it is deep as others have said and I am 6 feet tall. The drum is huge! I would recommend this washer with reservations - if it starts cleaning better I will change my review but as of right now having to run my clothes through 2-cycles to get them clean is a waste of time and water.

                                      We bought this washer based on Consumer Reports reviews and love it! It does things that I did not know a washer could. We used it to wash an antique handmade quilt a few weeks back and the quilt came out spotless with zero damage to the old hand stitches in the quilt. Impressive! You have to check it out.
