What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had our washer and dryer installed this week. Both washer and dryer are very quiet and efficient. We reviewed other reviews and made our choice based on how highly both units were rated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Laundry room combo I bought this washer & matching dryer two months ago for my new laundry room. I relied on the reviews before purchasing so I am contributing. I wanted something that was high efficiency, could handle king size bedding and quiet (my laundry room is in my master dressing area). I got all three. This was my first experience with a no-agitator, load sensor machine. It took a couple loads before I was confident that the machine knew how much water to use. Everything comes out clean, even the king size comforter. The direct drive really does make for quiet operation, especially during the spin cycle and I am on a wood subfloor. I also must comment on the Dryer. The door opens two ways. It opens the traditional side to side but also will open from the top out like a laundry chute. It is so nice to pull laundry out of the washer then drop it into the dryer - no bending. Both are easy to use and more than exceed my expectations. If I had it to over, I would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Easy to understand. I’ve had this machine for about three weeks and love it. Very large capacity tub. Gets everything clean. Only problem I have is I had my husband make a step for me because I cannot reach the bottom of the tub. Also I leave the machine open and detergent drawer open so I don’t get mold growing that I have heard so much about.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from want to like but cannot Have had for about a year or two. Keep getting IE errors unless we do a microscopic load. Runs nonstop / forever. Literally takes days on end to finish one load as I have to keep restarting it. I want the old fashioned kind back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Washer This seems to get clothes clean. I enjoy seeing the clothes washing. There is plenty of water without overdoing it. It balances the clothes. There are lots of washing options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine - because of the water levels Purchased in mid October. Delivered first week of November. So far, absolutely no complaints. Our previous washer was a water saver. Time after time the clothes came out with dry areas, even using the super load option. Not so with this washer! Love the fact I don't have to chose the water level, rather the machine takes the guesswork out of it. But, if I ever feel I need more water, I have the option to choose that too! Love the large tub. Makes my laundry days easier. So far I'm thrilled!

Can you pause this machine for 15-20 minutes after rinse cycle fills? I like to use a sanitizer and let it sit for a bit.

Asked by: lizbeth_25
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CVwithin 60 minutes has a special feature that is designed to make it as safe as possible. If the washer is paused or shut off while there is still water in the tub, the water will drain automatically after several minutes of inactivity. If the washer is paused and the Start/Pause button is not pressed within 60 minutes, the washer will shut off and all cycle settings will be lost. Any water remaining in the tub will be drained...^IFV
