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.
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.
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.

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.
