What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine This is the first washer that I am very happy with especially having a family of 6 ..The machine cleans extremely well and holds a large capacity ..This is the first machine that I need to go to the laundry room to see if it is still working as it is so quiet you can have it working even if kids are in bed best machine EVER!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Washer.... Love my new washer! Pretty to look at! The drum holds a huge amount of laundry! Cleans clothes much better than my previous front-loader did. I found it very easy to use, with hardly no learning curve! My only complaint is that the touted "Smart Diagnosis" feature, does not work at all for all of us Canadians!!!!!!! Very disappointed in this fact! Not that it's a deal breaker, but the salesman used it as a selling feature. Hopefully LG will look into this oversight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washing machine! I purchased this machine to replace an old school top loader and am glad we I did. Everything felt much cleaner after the first wash. The number of wash cycles this machine offers is ample and meets the needs of our family of 3. However, I am 5"5' and find it challenging to reach the clothes at the bottom of the drum. All in all though, very happy with the machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Machine Read other reviews and sometimes I wonder if other users have read and understand the instructions. The function of load senses makes this machine use less water to get laundry clean. This is a good feature for the environment. Don't try jamming all your laundry in one big load and this machine should go a long way. Good machine from LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL WASHER! Doesn't spin or wash the clothes very good. No matter if it is a small load or a large load. It does have a nice big drum for your clothes but doesn't spin them enough for a good wash

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Top Loading Washer I bought this machine a couple of months ago. It is quiet, efficient and gets the clothes very clean. It is easily the best washing machine I have ever owned. If I have to buy any appliance in the future, I am going to look at LG before I consider any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good This review is actually for the model wt1201cw which does not appears on the site. This washing machine is excellent. Much more advanced than the 30 years old one it replaced.
