Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washes well. Very reliable. We bought this washer about 1.5 years ago. We are enjoying it. We still have not tried out many of the intricate settings and special washes available on the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent washer!!! We purchased this washer a couple weeks ago due to the spin motor breaking in our old one. I’m so glad we picked this LG washer because it is much quieter, you can fit more clothes in one load of wash and it is al together much more efficient.

after just righting a great review I have an issue. My clothes are always sorted appropriately. I have a great amount of fuzz, lint on my items from the WASHER not the dryer. Is there some sort of lining behind the drum or somewhere causing this??? HELP

Asked by: CTSA
Hi CTSA. We regret to read about the fuzz and lint on your items after you have washed them in your ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CW. When sorting your clothes, you also have to keep in mind that mixing lint-forming clothes, like towels, flannel materials, and cotton knits, with those that attract lint, like synthetic blends, or mixing light-colored clothing with dark-colored items can cause the lint formed to show on the opposite color. Other things to be aware of is that choosing a wash cycle that is too long for the fabric type cause additional wear on the clothing that releases lint. Having too many clothes in the wash also exacerbates the issue because the machine cannot pump all the lint out through the drain, allowing it to redeposit on the clothing in the machine. YOur dryer often removes part of the lint, but some deposits remain after the cycle ends. Be sure to use manufacturer's suggested amounts of laundry products to reduce lint. Adding too much bleach to the load can cause the fabrics to release lint as will adding too much detergent which forms a white deposit on clothing that is often mistaken for lint. Too much fabric softener makes clothing stiff, resulting in a chemical reaction with the detergent that leaves a white residue on your clothing. Hope these help!...^IFV

Could someone who owns this washer please tell me how long the NORMAL wash cycle lasts for a normal load of 2-3 pair of pants, and a few shirts and shorts. My timer starts at 60 minutes and then quickly jumps to 28 min which seems too short.

Asked by: Willy 1956
If you don't use the fabric softener button it does a short spray rinse, with the fabric softener button turned on it will fill with water for a longer rinse cycle which makes a longer cycle time.
