5.0 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Control Top Load Washer with TurboWash®

  • WT1901CW

  • White

Key Features

  • 5.0 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity

More Room to Clean

More Room to Clean.

When it comes to laundry capacity, big is good, bigger is better, but biggest is best. With the largest capacity top load washer in its class*, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load! At 5.0 cu. ft. of mega capacity, you'll definitely have more room to clean.

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.

Laundry At the Speed of Life

LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We brought this washer and dryer set back in march so we' ve given it more the enough time to work out the kinks or whatever so here goes dryer Awesome..... washer on the other hand still leaves clothes dirty. Food remnants still on our babies clothes even after the hour and forty minutes of washing, there needs to be a water level option because sometimes you just need more water. And bleaching come on now not even gonna get started in the end the dryer works awesome washer huge disappointment which sucks cause i usually love LG products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washer I bought this washer a month ago and I am very satisfied. The washer cycle is quiet. It does not use a great deal of water and the clothes come out very clean. The drum has more than the adequate space to even wash a comforter. I do recommend this products

Is there a lint filter that needs cleaning? I am seeing lint on clothes after washing. Thanks.

Asked by: Lguser57
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. This model has not been designed with a Lint Filter. If any lint is generated, it should wash down the drain.

We just bought one but it is not turbowash or steam. Bought it at Lowes. It must have been last years model? Sometimes I see a residue on black pants? I tried the wash pods which was recommended but they don't completely dissolve and it leaves a mess.

Asked by: Brenda Koz
Brenda, I am looking at going out and buying this from Lowes tomorrow. I am puzzled as to if this is the model number you bought and you don't have those features. Have you been able to verify that? If not then LG what is up with that?? Brenda have you asked lowes about it?
