What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Longevity’s I bought the WT5070CW in 2012. After 6 years a defect in the tub seal caused water to leak on the transmission, rusting it out. I thought it would last longer than 6 years. I will not buy another LG appliance. I also had a bad experience with a refrigerator. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it at first but..... We bought the set a few years ago for a family of 5 who are constantly doing laundry; same issue with off balance but biggest problem is the rust to top of washer under hood; can't use any detergent dispensers any more; top is more rust than white ??? is there any way to fix this??

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Flaw Bought WT5070CW Washer and matching DLGX5171 Dryer in 2014. Satisfied with performance. But one flaw that will require attention for the life of Washer. Bleach dispenser rim rust. First noticed after about 3 years. Small pieces of rust clog bleach dispenser. Rust enters white clothes, we just do not use bleach any more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalanced Garbage Will NOT finish most loads. No matter how balanced a load is at start, it becomes unbalanced and stops with a tone that we've grown to have a special hatred for in this house. On top of this, the washer wastes so much time twitching and simply waiting, not doing anything. Could cut way down on wash time if this unnecessary "sensing" was removed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! This is by far the worst washer I have ever owned. It takes hours to do a single load of laundry because it is constantly off balance. It also wastes a ton of water because it will repeatedly refill trying to balance itself, but never does. As a family of 5, I don't have time to spend hours trying to get one load of laundry done. We will not be purchasing another lg product after this. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok I like the fact that it uses the minimum amount of water, but if I have to add an item after the water is done running in it adds more water, filling the machine to the very top even if the load of clothes is small. It also makes my clothes all tangled up. Another thing I like is the fact that I only have to use the minimum amount of detergent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrated I bought this machine a few years ago and it is a complete waste of money, time and water. Loads can take hours to complete due to constant UE and refills to balance drive up water bills and waste. I have never been so disappointed in a purchase as much as this one. If it died tomorrow it would make me happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clothes come out dirtier when the enter Had this machine for 4-5 years and not happy with it. During the wash cycle a film enters the drum and adheres to the clothing. We've cleaned the machine from top to bottom. This is unacceptable and never had this issue with our last machine
