Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washes like a champ! Bought this over Labor Day holiday because my front loader LG was done. The smell was terrible and we had tried to clean it several times but it was 10 years old. I am so glad I went back to top loading. This machine is huge. I love it so far.

Can i wash my rugs in it

Asked by: Michellewafer
You will need to refer to the garment label attached to your rugs or contact your the manufacturer for your rugs to inquire if they are machine washable.

Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CV has a Waterproof cycle which is the only cycle that can be used to wash a load of less than 14 lbs. of water resistant items...^IFV

I see that Consumer Reports rates this machine as "excellent" for water efficiency. How many gallons of water does a regular load require?

Asked by: hgins
How many gallons of water the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CV uses will depend on various factors. The washer takes variables such as cycle selected, the load size, load weight, fabric types, fabric thickness, the amount of suds, water pressure and more into account. These variables may require more water. When the Start/Pause button is pressed to initiate the wash cycle, the washer will measure the size of the load and determine how much water to use for the chosen cycle and added options. IT also has a feature called Auto Suds Removal. This feature activates if the washer detects excessive suds in the unit. If it is automatically added without selecting any option, the washer will drain and add water to dilute the concentration of detergent. This feature can be activated multiple times within the same wash cycle. Based on an annual usage of 295 loads per year, or around 6 loads per week as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure, the Estimated Annual Water Use for this washer is 5,479 gallons per year and the Integrated Water Factor (IWF) is 3.7 gallons/cycle/cu.ft. The IWF is a water performance metric for Energy Star certified clothes washers, so the washer will have a total weighted per-cycle water consumption of 18.5 gallons...^IFV
