What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good We bought this LG washer a little over a month ago and so far it's working out great. It's quiet and can wash a lot of clothes at once. It's also pretty to look at! I hope it continues to provide outstanding service as the months go by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genuinely surprised I had not had good experiences with washers that did not have an agitator in the past and was concerned with the amount of water then the salesman pointed me to THIS WONDERFUL WASHER! It has a button to add extra water and my clothes are very clean. I even washed a load that I thought might be too much but it came out perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After researching washers and dryers I chose the LG 7200 models. The washer runs quietly, cleans well, gives me choices in function and is large enough for even my dog's bed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good We have only had the washer for a few weeks now but so far we are loving it. Get clothes very clean and spin dries clothes which reduces drying time. We are only touching the surface of all the cycles and settings and look forward to exploring the capabilities of this machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great capacity but have set every load for extra water. Biggest issue is that cover will not remain open unless fully opened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer! We needed a new washer because ours went out. I went to Lowe's and after narrowing down my choices I decided to go with the LG 5.0 cu ft model. It is large enough for all our washing needs including bedding. I like the wifi feature on the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this washer over four months ago and still fascinated with all the new features I'm still exploring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from washer Can't stand this washer.It takes so long to wash a load of clothes.It beats my clothes to death. SOME OF THE FEATHERS on this washers aren't good. It has short cycle on it and you can't use softer in this cycle. It doesn't spin the water out of the clothes good.I had rather have my Front Loader back.

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

How much clearance do I need behind this washer? How much behind the dryer (model DLE7200WE). I'd like to buy these as a pair, but I need to make sure they fit before I buy them.

Asked by: Emilysumiko
The recommended installation clearance spacing for behind the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CW is a minimum of 4 inches and the installation spacing for behind the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Super Capacity Electric Dryer with Sensor Dry Technology, Model # DLE7200WE is 1 inch for a recessed area or closet installation. Additional clearances should be considered for ease of installation and servicing, and might also be required for wall, door, and floor moldings...^IFV
