What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nachine doesn't rinse soap out well enough!! I bought a washer ( and dryer ) six weeks ago. Loved the look of the machine and the large capacity tub. But.... The washer doesn't rinse the clothes good enough and there is usually a soap residue on one or more pieces of laundry afterwards. I have read the manual and I use only HE detergent and very small amounts of it. I do not use fabric softener anymore but would like to be able to. I watered down my detergent and now it works better and the soap residue only happens about every other time now. Am not happy about this situation. I wish I had not purchased this, but I live on a fixed income and can not afford to replace it.............

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple features great wash Getting back to basics. This washer has the basic setting to wash clothes. Like the old days, select normal wash, change water temp to hot will get it. I have not tried the app yet. Great buy for then price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love it. First time with no agitator. Cleans great. Spin feature excellent which makes for less dry time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for all load types Definitely like the large capacity and use of less water for the loads. Easy to use and like the quick wash feature. The stabilizing feature is also great to ensure the load is evenly distributed. This was actual our second choice. Our first choice was not available and needed to replace broken washer immediately. Happy our first choice was not available

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very loud and off balance easily!! I've had this washer now for about 4 months. It washes 1-2 loads a day. Can't use this washer to its capacity because the load gets off balance easily. Pretty much have to babysit the washer while in use. I would understand this issue if it were being overloaded but it does this when only washing 4 normal sized towels. Have to rearrange the clothes about halfway through the cycle on each load. If you are considering buying this washer look elsewhere!! Don't be like me regretting this purchase

Is there special liquid detergent that is required for this machine or can I use the same product as in my previous 15 year old washer?

Asked by: Paully
We would recommend the use of a liquid or powdered High Efficiency (HE) detergent in the appropriate detergent cup. It is recommended to only use additives labeled specifically for HE washing machines.

Does this machine have an agitator?

Asked by: Jahnavi
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7050CV does not have an agitator, it has an impeller which differs from the agitator which is a spindle that sticks up in the center of an automatic washing machine's wash drum. The agitator is usually equipped with fins or vanes, and it twists and turns during the machine's wash cycle, moving clothes through the water and, ideally, removing dirt from them. The motion of the agitator varies depending on the selected wash mode, so a delicate wash cycle is gentler than a standard wash cycle. In general, agitators are hard on clothes. An impeller is a low-profile rotating hub that replaces the agitator in some washing machine models. The vanes of the impeller create turbulent currents in the wash water as the impeller rotates. In theory, these currents move the clothes through the water and clean them without the impeller making physical contact with the clothes. The impeller also takes up less space in the center of the drum, making impeller machines easier to load than agitator machines. Impellers are often found in high-efficiency washing machine models that use less water than traditional models and rotate at higher speeds during spin cycles. The higher spin speeds extract more water from the clothes, so drying times are reduced. The combination of water and energy savings makes these washer models significantly more efficient than traditional models...^IFV

Our machine has error code of E6. According to trouble shooting there is something stuck in the pulsilator. Where is this located?

Asked by: Camie
The pulsator is the circular item located at the bottom center of the tub. It is suggested to remove all items from the tub and look inside the bottom of the washer for any foreign objects. Check the seam between the drum and the pulsator for anything stuck there such as a coin, zipper, or paperclip. If you find the item, remove it with a pair of pliers. If no items are found, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot the matter.

What does code mean. IE

Asked by: Scott Lebo
We regret the trouble you have experienced with the washing machine. According to page 36 of your owner’s manual, the IE error code suggests that the washer is filling with water very slowly or not at all. This error can be caused by the water lines being shut off, or the water hoses could be pinched or kinked, or the water pressure could be too low coming into the product. If this does not resolve the matter, then the washer may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

Can you have the lid open while water is running into the tub?

Asked by: karana3511
Once a cycle has started in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7050CV, the Lid Lock Indicator will illuminate to let you know that the lid is locked as the washer fills with water. It will stay on until you pause the washer, but the water will also stop filling when the machine is paused...^IFV
