Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you? Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar? That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.

A revolutionary spin on laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.

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 4.3 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by looks good, works well, saves water... Very happy with the washer, looks stylish, uses just enough water, and washes quietly, the capacity is very large as well.. overall, very happy with the purchase. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine I have had this new washer for a few months and I love it, it takes getting use to because it does not use the same amount of water as they use to and it must be level however it is very quiet and cleans the clothes well. Only issue is if you are a short person you may have trouble getting all the clothes out at the bottom of the machine. August 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Washing Machine This replaced my front loaders and I am extremely happy with the way these function. I would definitely recommend to others. July 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by clothes really not clean. Love the washer but have to lean into it to get clothes at the bottom. Can do great sized loads but water level never gets enough to move the clothes around to clean them not matter what size load. Without an adjutator soiled clothes don't get clean as not enough water to benefit the powerful drive force .Fix those 2 things and this would be an awesome machine!!! Otherwise we love it! Please fix those items! LG is fantastic brand! June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Product I have had my new washer around a month now. Its a beautiful washer and dryer set, with many different features. I think if there was anything that can be said about it, it would be that its hard to navigate all of the features. Otherwise, so far so good. June 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer with easy to following settings I've caught myself watching the washer begin the cycles of detecting the balance and water levels needed before each washing cycle. Cheap entertainment. I've had this washer for 2 months and have had very clean clothes with no problems. This machine is easy to use-just follow the directions in the manual and you will have no problems by loading the heavier clothes on the bottom and lighter on top. I had 1 unbalance issue due to washing a very bulky comforter but was able to rebalance and no issue after that. I would highly recommend this washer. June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One problem I love this machine however the tub is so deep I cannot reach the bottom to get stuff out April 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Took some time to get used to this one This washer has a learning curve and it took me a few uses to figure things out. Once I did, I'm very happy with everything so far. Clothes come out clean and fresh. April 3, 2015

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. This model, with the graphite steel finish, is designed to match the DLEY1701V Electric Dryer, or the DLGY1702V Gas Dryer.

A) Which cycles on this washer use the internal water heater?

B) Does the internal water heater on Model # WT1801HVA use water sourced directly from the tap or from inside the machine? Moreover, is the internal water heater easily accessible for cleaning hard water scale buildup?

Although we have hard water in our area, our home does not use a water softening system. When I launder items, I manually add water softener to laundry detergent to obtain well cleaned clothing.

I am trying to determine if this machine or the earlier similar Model # WT1701CW would be a better choice for us as it does not have an internal water heater.

Scale buildud would produce a less efficient water heater.

We want an LG washer with an agitator but the Lowes store says they don't have them with an agitator. My model # above says it comes with an agitator. Yes or no?
