LG White 3.6 Cu. Ft. Extra Large Capacity Top Loading Washer, Model WT1001WH

Modern front control style meets lasting performance.
When you want stylish design that works as hard as you do, look no further than LG’s revolutionary front control top load washer. Moving the control panel front and center means the easy-to-read, easy-to-use Dual LED display is always at your fingertips—even when the lid is open. Add the 10-year limited warranty of LG’s Direct Drive Motor, and you’ve got sleek, stylish innovation you can count on.

Features:

  • More Free Time
    Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The extra large capacity (3.6 cu. ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.
  • 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.
  • 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 warranty.
  • 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
  • Wash In Peace
    You shouldn’t know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance™ anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.
  • Save Money. Save Energy.
    When your washer uses about 30% less energy and half the amount of water used by regular washers, you’re going to make an impact—on your utility bills, your energy and water consumption, and most importantly, the environment.

    This is a modern high efficiency (HE) washer that uses very little water. It takes some getting used to if you are replacing a non HE machine with this model. Your loads will run longer (about one hour per load) but clothes come out almost dry due to the high spin rate. The machine has a timer that tells you how many minutes are left in the cycle. The extra energy used due to longer wash cycles is offset by shorter cycles in the dryer. Read the manual. You clean the tub once month to prevent mold build up but you don't have buy expensive tub cleaning products. Just pour a cup of bleach into the dispenser and press tub clean. The wash cycle is quiet. Finally, since top loaders spin horizontally instead of vertically you will experience vibration (but not noise) during spin cycles . As long as your floor is not slick and the machine is leveled you should be fine. We chose this machine over a front loader because the seals on some front loaders are prone to leak over time. Top loaders use more water than front loaders but, in our opinion, extra water use is worth not having to think about leakage.

    One major and two minor problems with this washer. The major one is that it will not wash with hot water. It has a "hot" setting, but this mixes about half hot and half cold water. What makes it even worse is that after the first few minutes of washing, additional water is added to the tub, and this is 100% cold water. I thought that something was wrong with my machine, so I had an LG repairman come to look at it. He measured the temperature of the water after the initial fill and found it to be 97 F. He said that this is the correct temperature, and even called LG to comfirm his claim. Some things, such as bedding and diapers should be washed in water that is 130 F or higher, which is what is considered "hot". A temperature of 97 F is "warm" by most standards. A partial solution is two keep the cold water turned off until the initial fill is complete, but it has to be on for the secondary fill, which still means no hot wash. The first minor problem is that there is no liquid detergent cup, so the detergent immediately starts to drip on the articles in the washer. This could be a problem if using the "delay wash" feature, as concentrated detergent would sit in spots on the fabric until the wash cycle starts. It is interesting that the manual mentions the liquid detergent cup in a couple of places, and in one place even says to be sure that it is in place. But when I contacted LG, they said no cup is used in this model. The second minor problem is that LG was too agressive in water saving. If the default water level is used, then the articles in the load do not move enough to be cleaned. I saw this in the first load that I did. It had 4 pair of men's slacks and a number of socks. A section of the waist band of one of the slacks never got into the water. The second load had 10 sport shirts. Two of the shirts started on the top of the load and stayed on top during the entire wash cycle. Needless to say, they were not clean. By using the "water plus" feature, a larger amount of water is used, and things move around more during the wash cycle. So far, the cleaning results have been satisfactory when using "water plus". You don't save as much water, but it is still a lot less than a conventional machine. Some reviews complain of the load getting out of balance. I have run into this only once. The load consisted of 3 flannel shirts and a pair of heavy socks. The 3 shirts got their sleeves all tangled together and became like a single heavy item. The high efficency washing machine is a great idea, but this version has not done it right.

            The problem with these HE washers is they don't put in enough water to do a wash. But you can trick them to use more water. Simply put in your clothes, then add in about 2 quarts of water on the clothes. This makes the clothes heavy and the machine tests and thinks it has a heavier load and then uses more water. It works every time. This particular machine doesn't have many options like the later models, but does do a good job when it uses enough water.

            Comments about LG White Extra Capacity Top Loading Washer:

            This machine overpraised and under delivers. I had high hopes for its' efficiency. My white towels have never been so dingy even after trying oxyclean and extra water levels. Simple spots remain on pants and tops. The high spin cycle may reduce drying but increase wrinkles and stretching. This is not a clothes washing machine. It is a water extraction unit. Do not purchase...move on.

                This washing machine does take time to understand but certainly cleans the clothes with less water and detergent. The cycles are longer than our old Kenmore washer. The mashine is quiet.

                        I originally bought this machine because I live in an old rehabbed row home with narrow stairs to the basement and this model fit. However, I was surprised on how great it washes clothes. My previous machine was a front loading machine which I was not impressed with. This machine washes my clothes great even when I don't use the extra water option. It's a shame they are discontinuing it. There's a lot of people in my neighborhood struggling to find washing machines that can fit down their stairs.

                        Two of us use the washer for 2 to 3 loads every week. We are doing typical laundry for clothing, towels, and bedding. We had a tight space to install washer in a laundry closet on bedroom level. This was the largest washer that could fit the space. The Abt sales rep was very helpful in helping us find the best washer for this tight space. The capacity for this washer is better than our old washer, and has done a great job in getting clothes clean. Only knock is that it's a little noisy during all cycles. Not a big deal for us since the washer is on the third floor away from kitchen and living room, but would be a problem if your laundry room is close to a living space where you watch TV. The delivery of new washer and removal of old unit was top notch. Abt delivery and installation service has always been superior for the items I've purchased from Abt.

                            I have had this washer for about a month. I love the water savings and detergent savings. I question the electrical savings since it runs about 15 minutes longer than my previous machines. My clothes appear to be clean and certainly fairly dry. This saves energy on drier use. I have long arms and can just reach the bottom. I wish it had a flat top, though.

                            I was really excited about this washer, but I hate it after a couple months! It can fit a lot, but the top of the load doesn't even get wet if you do that. Also, the bleach flows right into the dry clothes and leaves bleach around the top, which will get on future loads unless you clean it off well each time. Dry soap does not work well at all (it doesn't wash out of the clothes and leaves streaks), and liquid soap just runs out of the container into the clothes so I don't understand why there even is a container for it. I've watched the clothes wash in the machine and it looks like they're just sitting there the whole time instead of agitating. I've contacted LG about the bleach and soap and they say that's just how those things work. I even had an appliance guy come look at it and they said I'm doing things correctly and that it's just poorly made. This washer is just not at all how great I thought it would be. Ugh!

                            It is nice looking and has very cool features but it DOES NOT get the job done. My clothes are not getting cleaned properly and I am unable to wash larger loads of clothes which defeats the purpose of why I purchased it. I have had it serviced 3 times and replaced! Just been lost on what to do next
