Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 223 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washing machine 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. January 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is great for saving water and detergent. 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. January 13, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I do not like this washer 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 Worst machine Ive ever purchased 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 December 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this wash machine This wash machine is on the 2nd floor above the kitchen. I cannot hear it running which was a big concern when we bought this house. It even spins quietly and the clothes are spun so well they dry in record time too. I am completely happy/satisfied with this machine and have talked it up to my adult children and written a great review on Appliance Connection website (where I purchased it). December 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product performs wonderfully. My new washer is so quiet you can hardly hear it running. My clothes are clean, and it uses much less water than my previous washer. I love it. December 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not a good choice Machine has no soak cycle, soap and bleach dispensers leak before they are supposed to release resulting in bleach damaging clothes. December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent washing machine with supberb feature This is an excellent washer. We have had it over two months and zero problems. It is so much better that our previous washer, which was about five years old and it bit the dust, big time. We had a previous washer, same brand that lasted about twenty years, but their new machine were sadly a very far cry from the machines of thirty years ago. I spent a lot of time researching LG washers, both reading the reviews on the Wt1001CW, consumer reports, and also talking with family and friends that have LG washers, of same model, and some of other models of Lg. Some of the written reviews on this machine were very good, some middle of the road, and some really downplayed the LG washers. From reading and studing the bad reviews, it appears that those folks did not read or follow the users manual. My wife studied the manual in depth, follows it religously, and as a result this machine has performed wonderfully. It uses less, water, less detergent ( and some of the reviews bad results evidently resulted in not using LE detergent) and no problems yet. The wife washes several small loads a day, as we only use bath towels, wash cloths, dish towels, clothes (that can be washed) only one time and then into the washer. A lot of our friends find this an " over kill" on using a item once and then into the washer, but each to his or her own opinion. This washer is extremly quite, can not hear it operating unless you are very close to it and it cleans, rinses all of detergent out of the clothes, and spins them nearly dry, which takes a big load off of the dryer. The only down side of this washer is: If one is of a petite size (my wife is 5 feet 3 inches) it is difficult for her to reach the bottom of the the tub. We were well aware of this problem as when we looked at this washer in the store, she noticed this as being a problem for her. We are both in our late seventies, but still fairly active and able to do most of what we desire to do. To solve this problem, I unload the washer, put the clothes in the dryer, end of problem. I have no problem with the depth of the tub, as I am six feet plus a little. If one would have a serious problem with this, they should get a LG with the controls on the back of the washer, as the front controls is the cause of the washer being hard to unload by a petite person. I would heartly recommend this washer to anyone, the one down side is inconsequential to the overall appearance, features and excellent cleaning results of this washer. December 20, 2014
