On this top loader I noticed that the handle on the lid has 2 sliders that can be used to lock the handle in place, or unlocked to allow the handle to rotate...why?

Answer: 
The locking hinged handle on the washer lid is actually there to aid in closing the lid. For someone shorter in stature, the handle can be unlocked to aid in closing.

Answer: 
That is so you can leave the vent open for better ventilation to the tub if the machine is not going to be used for a while. There are already vent slots in that lid, but they are smaller.

Which cycle for sheets/towels?

Just purchased. After looking through manual, trying to determine which cycle is best to wash sheets and/or towels. Manual states bulky/bedding is for items such as pillows, comforters and articles that have difficulty absorbing water. Do sheets and towels just use cotton/normal? Thanks in advance!

Momofthree I had the same questions when I first purchased my new LG Washer. I use bulky/bedding for large towels, large sheets, comforters, etc. I called customer service and found them very helpful on issues as this. The number is 800-243-0000. Very good customer service!

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine and its proper usage. Yes; with the cycles and descriptions provided, it would seem that the COTTON/NORMAL cycle may be best for the items you have mentioned.

Answer: 
No. I don't think any unit on the market does? But it is worth the nominal cost to replace your hoses and vent coil. This is also important to do for warranty.

With regard to the LG Model WT1201CW washer...for the average person, the drum is pretty deep and would require the person to lay on the front of the washer to retrieve clothing at the bottom of the drum. Is there a potential to accidentally activate the controls when leaning over the edge of the washer?

Answer: 
No. When the load is done, the machine automatically turns off. Should you happen to accidentally turn the power button on, the machine will not and can not operate without the lid closed.

Answer: 
Yes, you can add clothes. When machine is on, simply push the power button (this puts the machine in pause mode) wait for lid to unlock, toss in your added items, close the lid and push the power button again to restart. Easy breezy!

Yes, the lid does lock. The only way you can add clothes mid-cycle is to pause the cycle. You CANNOT open the lid once the cycle starts.
