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.

      Very good washer. Reliable. Check feature set however. This one does not have a soak mode (we didn't realize that when we bought it). We would have taken the model up to get that mode included.

          Comments about LG White Extra Capacity Top Loading Washer:

          I scrimped and saved to buy this washing machine. I have owned it now for about 1.5 years. I am soooo disappointed. I am an older single woman. I wash small loads and am careful to sort my loads. The machine does not get my clothes clean! I am noticing that my bath towels and wash cloths are getting dingy. Although I always use the water plus feature, there is not enough water in the machine and/or enough agitation to clean the clothes. When I check the load while it is cycling through the wash cycles, I often see items on top that are not getting wet nor being agitated. Has LG come up with a retrofit fix for this machine? I love my dryer and other LG products I have owned but just avoided LG when purchasing a new above the range microwave.

              It has only gotten worse of the the 90 days I've been using it. I have never seen a washer that has clothes supposedly be clean come out with all sorts of lint/pet hair streaks. I feel like it was a total waste of money. I'm now shopping for a replacement and definitely will NOT be choosing LG!

              Comments about LG White Extra Capacity Top Loading Washer:

              I bought this washer a little over a year ago and chose not to purchase the extended warranty! What a MISTAKE!!! Every single time I do a load of white laundry, something comes out more stained than when it went in. Oftentimes it happens to be one of my favorite pair of white pants. I have had to take them to my parents house and bleach them in order to get the stains out that were not there when I put them in my washer! It looks like I tossed them in with a load of mud! This happens to my dark clothes too and I have had to redo several loads! My fiancées work clothes get washed in this machine but they are by no means that bad, and again, my parents washer (not the same brand) handle them just fine! I have done tub clean cycles after each load and nothing has solved my problem! It is not my detergent either, as I have tried a few different brands!! I am so incredibly disappointed in this washer! And to think, I waited three years to get our own!! I would rather be toting myself back and forth to the laundromat again than ruin all my good clothes!!!

                  I purchased this machine for several reasons. The first was because the last machine also a LG was the washer from heaven, unfortunately that front loading machine was too large for the space in my new home. So back to the stores to find a HE LG washer that would fit the smaller space. Purchased this top loading LG in Feb 2014 and have been very pleased with it until the drum fell to the bottom of the washer earlier today. We are a two person household so over use is not an issue. Called LG and spoke to a very nice young man today. Found out if they approve the copy of my sale invoice, they because it has been over a year will most probably pay for the parts ie. the drum, but not the labor to fix it. Maybe I'm missing something here it's just 19 months from payment and even less time since, I had to order and wait for delivery. Since when is the life span of a washer, a high quality and highly rated one barely 18 months. I'm hoping that LG comes through and takes care of this so I can continue to invest in their products and believe that customer satisfaction is important to them. My 2 star rating is not because of the performance which until the drum dropped was very good but because of the reliability issue and the anticipation of a very large bill from the repairman.

                      Comments about LG White Extra Capacity Top Loading Washer:

                      When our Kenmore front loader finally started giving out after around 13 years, we started shopping for a replacement. Our laundry room is old and space is very limited, which ruled out many washers simply based on the available space. We finally came across this one and reluctantly decided to go back to a top loader (with the consolation that at least was a High Efficiency model). We were happy to read the great reviews, though, and we were impressed by the manufacturer's warranty. I'm sad to say that we have been EXTREMELY disappointed! We have owned this washer for eight months. We live in California where we are dealing with severe drought. Water efficiency is a major concern for us. Based on the information we had read about this machine, it sounded like ti would be very efficient. Unfortunately, that "efficiency" has come at a cost. As some reviews have pointed out, sometimes the clothes on the top hardly get wet, much less moved around very much. From the beginning we consistently found residue on articles of clothing when we removed the laundry to hang out on the line: The residue varies, sometimes pale, almost waxy looking streaks and clumps, sometimes darker. I switched from the high-quality He powdered laundry detergent I had used for years with our Kenmore without any issues and found a He liquid to use. No change, we're still getting residue. We've played with the settings and various temperatures with no luck. I've taken to having to hand-rinse numerous articles of clothing after each wash and wring them out before I hang them out on the line. You should see the water in the bucket after I'm done (I've uploaded photos): cloudy and murky beyond belief. My husband is experiencing skin irritation and itching where elastic in his underwear touches his skinâ€"he thinks it's because of the laundry residue left behind. Needless to say, the actual cleaning of the clothing is sub-par. If you can even refer to it as "cleaning." When there's that much residue left behind, you know that there's dirt left behind as well. This is a huge disappointment since we like the features on the washer and the fact that it fits in the space we have available. But frankly, I wish we'd simply spent the money to have our Kenmore repaired. Our 13-year-old front loader did a much better job on laundry than this modern LG washerâ€"and when you take into the account the extra rinse cycles we sometimes use, it used a lot less water too.

                      Comments about LG White Extra Capacity Top Loading Washer:

                      This machine is absolutely horrible. When it fills with water, even when using the Water Plus feature, the water doesn't actually immerse all the clothes in the water. It doesn't even get some of the clothes wet! After washing a load, some clothes are completely dry. We attached a garden hose to the washtub in the laundry room and have to fill the machine manually with water before running the load. I'm not making this up. This is not what we had in mind when we bought the "new" washing machine technology. LG should not sell such a horrible piece of equipment. This is our first LG product. This might be our last LG product.

                      This washer transfers dirt from one article to another, often leaves parts of the clothing dry throughout the entire wash cycle, and barely agitates the laundry. Sometimes the simplest soil is not removed and I am forced to hand wash laundry AFTER it has gone through the machine. Very disappointing. I wish someone from LG would contact me and help me resolve my issues with this machine!

                          I am a technician working in various situations but always sure to be covered in grease, dust, dirt and grime while repairing compressors. from the first load of wash and everyone since it has been more than effective in getting my work uniforms clean. And the cycles allow for my wife's delicate items and whites to come out bright and clean. The drum size is great for bedding and large items as well.
