Count on it

Sleek and Easy!

Goodbye clunky dials and knobs. With the new Easy Front Panel, the controls are readily accessible in the front of the washer. As if that's not enough, the sleek modern design allows you to find the right settings in no time.

The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t have to mean compromising. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.

Get wise

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.

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its an okay washer. Love the BIG tub size! Wish that it had a soak button.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrated I have had this washer for 2 1/2 years. For the past 3 months I have to constantly monitor the washer to make sure it doesn't go out of balance. As the washer tries to rebalance itself it keeps refilling with water making it very inefficient. A large load takes hours to finish. The clothes also come out wrinkled. We are now looking for a replacement washer and it will not be a top loading LG. A washer should last more then 2 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last After two years of working very well, this machine now makes doing laundry the biggest headache. A few months ago, it began to stop in the middle of almost every load and flash the "uneven" sign. And it continues to do this at least 1-2 more times after we shift the load. We had a short-term fix of putting every load on the "heavy duty" cycle, but this is no longer making loads go through a whole cycle now either. Very frustrating and now having to consider buying another type of washer as we have a new baby on the way and will be doing a lot more laundry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible washer I bought this washer and probably 6 months or so after purchasing it I would get constant unbalanced load errors while doing laundry. i would have to manually take the clothes out of the washer and place them in it again. This would go on for hours and hours on the same load. Save yourself frustration and money and buy another washer because this thing is garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Washer I've had this washer for a little over a year now. This washer is always going out of balance, I've spent more money in water since having this washer then my old 10 year old washer. It's constantly adding water during the spin process most of the times filling up the entire bin then repeat 2 or 3 times before it finally gives up. I would not recommend this to anyone. Another problem we have is it just does not wash clothes, many times we take out a load of wash and find some items that are completely dry or have dry areas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money hate this washer! I have to wash everything on the bulky/bedding setting so that it fills up with enough water to get my clothes wet. You can't wash a small load without it getting uneven. I do not recommend this washer to anyone.

What metal or material is the wire on the stator (the wire used to form the coils) made of???

Asked by: DavidAdams0322
Regrettably, neither the specifications nor the owner's manual for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.1 cu. ft. Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Sleek Easy Front Control Panel, Model # WT1101CW go into that much detail with regards to the internal components for the washer. That information might only be available from the engineering notes for the unit. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center (800) 243-0000 to see if our Call Representatives might have access to those notes so they can provide you with an appropriate answer to your inquiry...^IFV

How do I set the water level on LG WT1501CW

Asked by: Patti G
Trick I learned by accident-Bulky Bedding cycle uses more water  than the others. Having said that, I don't know that I would continuously use that cycle for extra water on a regular basis.

My fabric softener dispenser is clogged. How do I clean it?

Asked by: Isabelle1
Page 19 of your owner's manual for the LG 4.1 cu. ft. Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Sleek Easy Front Control Panel, Model # WT1101CW, shows an annotated diagram of the dispenser and shows the layout for the Main Wash Powdered Detergent Compartment, the Liquid Fabric Softener Compartment, the Main Wash Liquid Detergent Compartment and the Insert. If you look at that, you'll get a better idea of how to pull the compartments out so that you can clean them using warm, water and a soft bristled brush if necessary. In the maintenance section on page 28, another diagram illustrates how to take the detergent box apart to clean it and that will also help you in visualizing how to clean the compartments...^IFV

My true balance lg washer will only add cold water. When you push the button for hot water, it still adds cold water. The hot water valve is on.

Asked by: ssojamie
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is recommended to test the washer by running an empty load using the TAP COLD water temperature setting. If the water starts getting HOT, then the water lines are backward and need to be switched. If this does not resolve the situation, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
