Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good look. Easy access We did not want the front load any longer due to mold and scum in the gasket area of front loads. Went back to a top load. Bought the LG WT1701CV one month ago. It is cleaning the cloths with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WT1701CW is a great Washer! I bought this washer 2 months ago, and I do approximately 3 loads a week, and so far I'm very happy with it. I heard they have now replaced it with a 1900 model that isn't half as good. Don't know why they didn't continue this one! I've had no problems with it balancing itself and I am not real careful at loading heavy items on bottom and light on top. I've also run some waterproof items and had no problems with those washing correctly- I ran them on the bulky setting as suggested. It seems to use enough water to get our clothes clean, and the clothes move through the washer. It does have a very deep tub, allowing for about an extra 1/2 load more than my last washer, but it is a stretch for me to reach the bottom of it to remove laundry and I'm 5'7 and long-armed. I also have the matching dryer and it does a nice job as well. I deducted 1 star because even though it has lots of settings some of those settings are locked out depending on the load type you select, so you can't add extra water for example on certain type loads. I wouldn't exactly say it is quiet, as it is right off our kitchen, but it isn't as loud as some I've heard. It's only noisy in the spin mode which is understandable. I may be old fashioned, but I prefer the buttons to be on top or on the back. My cat jumped on the washer today while it was running, and turned it off in mid-cycle, and since I didn't catch it right away, I had to rerun the whole cycle. Overall, I am pleased with this washer though, but this review won't do anyone much good since this washer is discontinued. If you find a used one, BUY it, because I think it is much better than the replacement model,and much better than most other washers out there right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this machine. This top loading machine is very easy to operate and there are lots of washing options. It senses the load weight (I don't have to choose size of load). The clothes are almost always spun so there is little extra water, Easy to operate. Huge tub. I can wash my Queen comforter. No agitator in the middle of the tub for straps (camisoles etc.)to get stuck or wrapped. The clothes seem to be cleaned and rinsed adequately. I spend less time buying detergent (uses smaller amounts of concentrated detergent) Makes pleasant sounds. Washing sounds (beach) tinkly music the completion of the wash [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappoited I purchased my washer and dryer 8 months ago. The washer doesn't wash my whites to the standards I' m accustomed to. Both whites and colors come out looking like the water didn't reach all parts of them. And, no, I don't overload the machine. I wash clothes weekly and it's only husband and I. I have no problem with the dryer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
