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 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:

          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.

                      This washer is amazing, you have the controls in the front of the washer and they are easy to reach. You have the option of soaking versus not soaking in the front load. I can wash my king size comforters without any problems.

We can load so many clothes in it that it cuts our laundry time in half! We give this washer 5 stars!!!!

                              Have been wanting a Large capacity washer for some time.... was tired of doing multiple loads of wash, especially when it came to our King size bedding. This washer is amazing....EVERYTHING fits! and there are so many wash options and combinations available ... there's a cycle for anything you can think of. LOVE the front controls. It's very quiet, washes great, and while larger in cu. ft., is actually smaller than the washer it replaced. I spent weeks researching washers... glad I found this one... AND it's matching dryer.

                                  We had a front loader that was 4 years old and when it was unbalanced it would walk. This machine does not do that and it removes the water as good as a front loader.

                                      Holds huge loads and gets clothes really clean. Previous washer was large capacity but could not hold more than 4 towels without bouncing around and going through cycles to balance out. UG washer spins and self correct loads with little noise and interruption of cycles. Also easy to use and washes large bulky stuff like blankets, mattress covers, etc.
