LG 5.0 Cu Ft Mega Capacity Graphite Steel High Efficiency Top Load Washer - WT1701V

The LG 5.0 Cu Ft Mega Capacity Steel High Efficiency top load washer's exceptional loading capacity and delay-wash timer make this the perfect washing machine for multi-tasking and saving time.

Key Features:

  • 5.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity
  • Front Control Design - A revolutionary Spin on Laundry
  • TurboWash™ - TurboWash™ Technology
  • SmartDiagnosis™ - Troubleshoot Quickly and Efficiently
  • Direct Drive Motor 10 Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty

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 5.0 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 only had the machine for a little over a month. I have not used all the settings as yet, I am still getting used to the product. I have been able to wash a huge comforter with no problem, it is wonderful. The only problem I have is being able to reach all the way to the bottom for small items, I did not realize just how big the tub is. My friend has joked that I might fall in and not get out. My daughter came by to use my machine and she must have put a weeks worth of clothes in. My LG was able to handle it. The only problem is that she tried to fill my dryer full and it is not as big. I like being able to see the machine work through the glass top, it is amazing. The design of the machine is very impressive. The machine makes very little noise. I have been happy so far with my LG, I am glad I chose this machine. I am planning on purchasing the matching dryer, when my current dryer quits.

Scratches appeared on the control panel within minutes. Before the delivery truck left the driveway we had scratches, and every time we load or unload the washer more scratches appear. The scratches either come from buttons and zippers on the clothes you're loading or unloading, as they drag over the front of the machine, where the controls are located. Or the scratches come from the buttons and zippers on the clothes you're wearing while you're bending over to load or unload. Either way, we are displeased. Our less than two month old washer looks like we bought it from a scratch and dent sale.

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

      Moving into a new home, my only extra want was a new washer and dryer. After only stopping in one store, no time to shop all over everywhere, I laid my eyes on this LG and I just loved it. The controls are right on the fron and that just makes so much sense! So many options and a ginormous tub! I seriously wash clothes all the time. I love the chime instead of a buzzer too. I don't worry about if my loads are going to get clean because this has several preset options I can choose from depending on my load. I highly recommend this.

          would be awesome except for some flaws

          By 

          from Hercules, CA, USA

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

          I generally like this washer except for the following items: 1) the programming for the movement of the tub could be better. it adds water many times when it had just positioned clothes around the edge from spinning. it should shake a bit to get them to settle down so when it adds water it goes to the clothes and not to the bottom of the tub directly. 2) the draining of the tub sometime is horribly noisy like a pump running with nothing to pump. 3) the controls should not be changeable after the cycle has started. if you open the top and reach in and rub against a button by mistake you are messed up as it changes perhaps something very significant.

              Love, love this washer! Looks great, does a fabulous job of cleaning clothes! Still learning, but easy enough to understand how to take advantage of all the settings this washer has. The large tub is spectacular....can use for King size bed things, which in the past was taken to a cleaners so saving a ton of money already! Love the water that we save also! Cant praise it enough, best decision in purchasing this LG!!

              This machine does not clean well. I had a front load for years until the door cracked, my husband went on line and brought this one . The tub is deep and doesn't move the clothes around as good as a front load does. It has so many wasted features and cycles.

                  My machine still has some features I have not even gotten to yet, but the performance so far is great. The one feature I am not totally fond of is the tub size. I purchased online without viewing in a store and have a bit of difficulty removing all clothing due to its depth. I actually keep a pair of tongs handy to help with the small items on the bottom. Otherwise, this is a great machine and I strongly recommend.
