What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Self balancing , load identification I just bought and had it a week. I really love it so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible washer 6 months old and LG authorized repairman had to order several new parts including main board. Has not worked correctly since delivery by Best Buy. LG had to take over repairs from BB geek squad. Forget about hot water when needed or enough water to cover your wash load. I have the directions manual memorized. Terrible washer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love that I can wash my comforters. I am happy with my washing machine. I love the cold wash cycle and the many other features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I like the touch panel feature. This appliance provides sufficient agitation for the cleansing of my garments. I am content with my purchase. Happy face

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have only used the washer twice since purchasing it. However, I love it. I can fit two loads in there compared to my old washer. It cleans the clothes great. It washes in less time than my old washer. I read reviews before I bought it and this rated the highest. Other reviews mentioned this so I will too. If you are short, I am only 5" 1', you will not be able to reach the bottom to get the clothes out. I have a step stool nearby to help me get the clothes out. I think it is a small inconvenience for how great the washer is otherwise.

How do I use the wifi function?

Asked by: rabbitwoman
Run the LG Smart Laundry application on your Smart Phone. Select Smart Appliance. Select Washer. Select "Top Load". If you see a pop-up message about NFC, press the CANCEL button. Press the Wi-Fi model button at the bottom of the screen. Enter the EMAIL ID and Password that has been registered. If you do not have an account at, press the CREATE AN ACCOUNT button and create a UserID and password. Select the Login button. On the next page, the application shows the Wi-Fi network list. Select your home network. If your network requires a key, enter the password and select the Connect button. If the application successfully connects to the home network, turn on the washer and then press and hold the Wi-Fi Connect button on the washer for three seconds. After powering on the washer, do not press any other buttons before pressing and holding the Wi-Fi Connect button. The Wi-Fi connection indicator on the washer blinks to indicate the machine is connecting. The application now works to connect the appliance and register it as a Wi-Fi product. A notification appears when the washer is successfully set up and the product registration and Wi-Fi setup is complete. The Wi-Fi connection indicator illuminates when the machine connects to the home network. This information, and additional information can be found in the owner’s manual on page 29.

I am having problems operating the water plus function. Sometimes I can choose it and sometimes I can't. I thought it was an option when using heavy loads. Please help.

Asked by: rabbitwoman
The water plus option is designed to add water to a cycle, and is especially useful during a LARGE or BULKY load. If the washing machine reaches its maximum water level, the Water Plus button will have no effect. This option cannot be used on the TUB CLEAN or BEDDING cycles.

Is there a soak cycle? I would like to soak towels and dish rags and such.

What cycles are available for say white towels that I want to add bleach to? How do I activate the addition of bleach or does it automatically flush this compartment with every load? So if you add bleach, it will go in or if you don't, then no problem?

Asked by: KYCats
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The bleach dispenser is flushed out during every cycle. Adding bleach to NORMAL cycle should perform this task well.

What is the most dry laundry in lbs. I can put in to wash at one time?

Asked by: Jvvv
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer, Model # WT7200CW can also hold 20-22 pounds of laundry. The difference of 0.2 cubic feet between this model and the WT7500CW does not make a difference in terms of load capacity limits, but again, please keep in mind that while it is economical in both utility costs and time management to do full loads, you should never cram clothes and overstuff a washer just because you can. You also need to consider that the type of load will also make a big difference. 20 pounds of shirts is a lot different to 20 pounds of towels when they get wet...^IFV
