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.

          After one month of steady use, we've been very pleased with this washer's performance. Lots of features, yet easy to use. It does it's job very well, with hardly any sound, let alone noise.

                          I bought my washer a month ago and like it very much. The only problem one may have is that the tub is so deep. At 5'6" I have to stand on my tiptoes to reach small articles, like socks, that are on the bottom. I also had trouble locating the serial number. The website said it was on the back of the washer, but without pulling the washer out, I could not read it. I promptly shot off an email and received a quick response. LG has must have received other complaints, because it has also been added to the right side of the washer. Website needs to be updated. To date I am very happy with my new washer, and I like having the controls on the front top of the washer. I would definitely recommend this washer.

                                  This is one of the best washers we have ever owned. Only one small issue - remember to take the coins out of your pockets. Coins can easily get wedged, and grind, in the bottom of the wash basin in the crack between to parts of the wash drum, causing all kinds of problems.

                                      I've had this for about a month, and find it very good. There are a couple of things that might make it even better: 1) although the washer determines the load size itself, it isn't all that easy to determine the amount of detergent to add, since my assessment of load size might not agree with the machine's assessment; 2) It's fairly noisy at times, and if it's in a living space one gets the feeling that an airplane might be approaching.
