Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clothes remain dirty and stained Clothes come out still stained. Not enough water no matter how many times I push the button to add extra water - no matter which setting you choose. Clothes float on top of the little water - get barely wet. Clothes spin and come out so twisted and wrinkled. DO NOT BUY!! What a lemon. Have spoken to customer service numerous times about all these issues. Also had several on site service calls with no resolution. Repairman even told me has other customers that add extra water by via a hose or adding buckets of water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unreliable - broke twice within a year The front panel of this machine fails. I've had it repaired once and now the replacement panel has also failed. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer! Purchased another brand and after a year had to replace it. Decided on this washer because of steam option. I noticed right away that clothes were cleaner and when I used the sanitizer cycle items were clean and fluffy not stiff as other brand. Cycles take a little bit longer, maybe 10 minutes or so but I would rather compromise that than clean. Also after spin cycle load has less water in them which translates to shorter dryer time. I have 3 active kids and do daycare so a good washer is important.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This Washer I bought this washer right before Christmas so I've had it a month now. I've never owned a HE washer and was very skeptical about purchasing 1 due to all the horrible reviews I've seen such as long wash time, clothes don't get clean due to water levels. But, after researching and reading reviews on everything, I decided this was the one I'd try even though it had a lot less reviews than most, they were good reviews. I absolutely love it! It's super quiet compared to my old (non HE) washer as well as holds much more. The wash times are not long which is what I heard about many others. There are settings that will wash a long time, but just normal laundry is 56 minutes! It tells you how long the load is on the front panel and I love you can change water temp, spin speed, normal soiled to heavy soiled, softener or no softener. Whatever your preference, you have a choice! The panel is digital, but super easy to use! You cannot go wrong with this washer!

My washer is about 5 months old and when I'm washing clothes black mildew spots are all over them ?? What is this coming from ? It happens when I use steam cycles and ones without steam ? It's disgusting and I'm desperate for an answer 

Asked by: Mom of 4
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. If there are spots on your clothes after the wash, then it is recommended to utilize the TUB CLEAN feature. A buildup of detergent residue can occur in the wash tub over time and cause the current issue you are experiencing. If additional assistance is needed, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Can I use the 'ecoegg' in the washer?

Asked by: LovetodoLaundry
Regrettably, we are not familiar with 'ecoegg'. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.7 Cu.Ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer With TurboWash® Technology, Model # WT7700HVA is designed to use only High-Efficiency (HE) detergent. High-efficiency branded detergents are available from various detergent manufacturers and can be identified by the 'HE" logo on their packaging. If the 'Ecoegg' is a High-Efficiency detergent, it is highly recommended that you follow the instructions on its packaging for its use. If in doubt, please contact its manufacture to inquire if it is suitable for use in High-Efficiency washers...^IFV

I just filled the fabric softener spot with fabric softener and it immediately, and completely, dripped through the bottom of the dispenser onto all of the clothes.  This has never happened before, any ideas what caused this?  

Asked by: Erinmh02
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The most common cause of the symptoms described is for the dispenser tray to have some manner of buildup which keeps the tray from closing. It is recommended to remove the dispenser tray, wash it in hot water, and then test it again. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional suggestions.

Does this machine have a delicates cycle and a hand wash cycle?

Asked by: Roos
The 2016 ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.7 Cu.Ft. Mega Capacity Top Load Washer With TurboWash® Technology, Model # WT7700HVA has a Delicates cycle, it does not have a Hand Wash cycle. Keep in mind that the Delicates and Hand Wash cycle have the same agitation speed and the difference between the two is how long each cycle agitates at one time. The Delicates cycle will fill then agitate on low speed for the entire wash portion of the cycle whereas the Hand Wash cycle pauses the agitation during the cycle. It will fill with water and agitate intermittently throughout the cycle...^IFV

Is it recommended to leave the lid on the washer open when not in use?  Also, how do I use the add a garment feature?

Asked by: Erinmh02
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Yes, it is recommended to leave the washer lid open between cycles in order to allow the remaining moisture to evaporate. The Add Garment light will illuminate near the beginning of the wash cycle to indicate when it is safe to add items to the load. Press the START/PAUSE button to pause the cycle and add garments to the load. Press the START/PAUSE button to resume the cycle. It is not recommended to add items unless the Add Garment light is illuminated, as this could result in poor performance and/or clothing damage.

What does LEI. Mean on the display window

Asked by: Angel56
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. According to page 47 of the owner’s manual, the LE1 code denotes the possibility that foreign objects, such as coins, pins, clips, etc. have gotten caught between the wash plate and the inner wash basket. Turn off the washer and then press the POWER button. Press the SPIN SPEED button without selecting a cycle to drain and spin the load. When the spin is complete, remove the clothes and then find and remove any objects caught in the wash plate. Always check pockets, etc. before washing to prevent error codes or damage to the washer or clothing. For additional assistance, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
