LG 5.0 Cu Ft Mega Capacity White High Efficiency Top Load Washer - WT1701WH

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 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.

          Comments about LG 4.9 Cu Ft Mega Capacity Graphite Steel High Efficiency Top Load Washer:

          One review said if you are short you will have a problem getting your clothes out. My old machine was also deep so I didn't think I'd have an issue. Wrong - I now have a step stool to remove my clothes. No one can tell me this machine (or any other) that says it's "efficient" , is efficient. It may take less water but it sure uses a whole lot more electricity! It does hold a lot more items than my old machine (it was only 3 yrs old when it gave out) but keep in mind your "old" dryer may not hold that many items.

              Love, love, love this machine! I think my favorite feature is the load sensing. It works to make sure the load is balanced and knows just the amount of water to use

                  I bought this a month ago and am very happy with how it cleans and the range of options. I also am amazed at how quiet it is. One thing that could be a problem for some is if you are not a tall person. I'm over 5"6 and I can just reach the clothes in the bottom of the washing machine after they're washed. I think that if you are much shorter though, it may be a challenge to reach clothes in the bottom of the tub unless you have a step stool near by.

                      Diamonds are extremely hard so This is an appropriate name for the material. We just got our new LG top load washer and dryer a couple of weeks ago. They are so easy to use, it's almost fun doing laundry now. This morning I was storing away a case of dog food in a cabinet above the washer I dropped a 13 oz can of dog food a distance of about 15-18 inches directly above the lid of the washer . I smashed into the lid and didn't even leave so much a mark or scratch on the lid. I was quite released and amazed at the results. That's tough stuff.

                              Love this washer. So many options for cycles. Love the delayed timer. I use this all the time when I want to set up the laundry - but wait for it to start until everyone has finished showers, etc. for the morning routine. Love how energy efficient it is - and how little water it uses!! (I haven't had a new washer in 15 years - so this HE feature is something i'm loving!) The only problem I have with this washer is that it is taller than the "old style" and I am pretty short (5'1"). Therefore, i have trouble reaching all the way down into the tub to get the clothes out. It's not too bad for bulky things like towels - but items like socks are a real problem!! I actually considered returning the washer - and went back to the store to scope out front loaders (as all the top load washers seem taller now). But - i really loved the washer - so i wasn't convinced i wanted to return it. After looking at all my options - i decided to keep it. and I'm glad. I use a reacher to get the small items at the bottom of the tub. and i'm getting used to it. Not ideal - but it works. (Maybe LG could design a feature to "raise" the bottom of the tub after the load is completed to make the laundry easier to reach!! haha) But for efficiency and ease of use - and cool technology (i love buttons and digital functions) - this is a GREAT washer. Great price, too!!

                                  I bought this one year ago and it works great. I have had other brands in the past, but this has been the best so far. My washer before this one was having problems from day one and I was calling to have it serviced. LG will be my go to brand from now on for everything in my home. Don't ever change LG
