I'm interested in model WT5170, or other models depending on the decibel ratings. I must have a quieter washing machine!
Thank you.

Answer: 
My old washing machine was an agitator model, and during the spin cycle, I could feel the floor vibrate and it sounded terrible. That washer was about 7 years old. I have a hearing aid so I am sensitive to annoying sounds. While I do not know the decibel rating of my newly purchased LG 5170, (it is properly installed in the laundry room--above basement level) there is no vibration and it is very quiet. The wall to the laundry room is next to our family room. The washer sound no longer interferes with our family gatherings or watching TV.

Answer: 
Yes, it does. The heater is active only on the "white" and "sanitary" cycles. The "coldwash" cycle was NOT added to eliminate using the heater. "Coldwash" was added to improve cleaning using cold water by increasing the water level, lengthening the wash time and providing a more vigorous wash motion.

Answer: 
This washer does have a built in water heater. That is why LG added the "coldwash" option to 'eliminate using the built-in water heater booster." Hope this was helpful.

Is there an option for hand wash/delicates?

I think I read in the manual to wash delicates on the wool setting. Is that correct and would that be true for hand wash?

Answer: 
Use the "Delicate" setting -- it washes and rinses with cold water. The agitation is very, very gentle so it may not be strong enough for blouses and such things. "Wool" is the same except that the water is warm. Which cycle you choose depends on what you would do if you were hand-washing. Warning: Watch the water level during the wash part of the cycle. You may need to add more water as I often find that there's not enough water to get the clothes properly wet or submerged.

Answer: 
The WOOL cycle is for washing shrinkable woolen or hand-washable items requiring delicate care. Only wash woolen items that are labeled machine washable or hand-washable. The DELICATE cycle is for washing lingerie or sheer and lacy clothes which can easily be damaged.

Can it be added with powdered detergent in the dispenser or in the bottom of the machine when you load the clothes? Or not at all?

I use Oxiclean and the newer laundry "bubbles" for enhanced laundry scent, both with great results! I just add it into the laundry itself in the main drum.

Does this style washer have the capacity to wash a king-size comforter? If not, which other models would you suggest. I would prefer a top-loader. Jody
