What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from owned 4yrs ran 2yrs Should of had a recall as all of them have the drum jerking error issue other models don't. Doesn't appear to be a real imbalance issue more of firmware or control board issue. Drum inbetween cycles jerks drum into oppsite directions. if I stop it and continue it there is no unbalance error and continues on. Will never by LG anything again. Most of phillip screws inside, such as mounting brackets, top of drum rusted, if not using SSteel why not hex heads? Cheap parts. EVER

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picture is great. WiFi capability is not. Reviews I've read are on target as far as the picture and sound quality. The WiFi capability, though, is useless. It "works" in the sense that some communication does happen, but the throughput is horrible. I have to connect my old Roku (which does wireless very well) if I don't want a network cable snaking through my living room. The model I have doesn't support 4K, though, so I DO have to run a cable from my ISP router to the TV if I want to use the TV's webOS support for Netflix. Having to do this is a major disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was great, until it wasn't We bought this washer and dryer as a set 3 years ago, the washer started to make a loud noise and not spin. Luckily we purchased an extended warranty and they came out to repair it. Well, they cannot repair the unit as the nut on the bottom to access the clutch will not come off. So we are getting a brand new replacement (Not LG) We have been without a washer since 12/2 and our new one is arriving 12/28, it cannot come soon enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Our LG washing machine has been in use now for over three years. We use it for about 6 loads per week. Have not had a single issue with it. It seems to do a good job of washing clothes. Have even washed a king size comforter in it with no issues. Exterior size is a little smaller than previous washers we've had, which is great for our small laundry room. It does make some weird noises that I haven't heard from other washers but it does advice about this in the manual. This LG product has sold us on the brand, so we plan to go with LG for other appliances in our home.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not wash clothes It seems like without the big spinning cone in the middle, it basically moves clothes around in the water. Clothes come out no cleaner than how they originally were. I'd suggest to skip this and possibly any other washer with no cone to scrub clothes clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design I bought this machine a couple of years ago and want to get rid of it. I just can't reach the bottom to pull the laundry out. It also travels across the floor when spinning even though the tech installer said it's perfectly level. It also just can't seem to organize the laundry so it will actually spin correctly... it constantly stops for me to reorganizes things. I hate it and want to trade it in for a FRONT LOADING machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Features -Unable to eliminate the distribution cycle at the very start of the wash. -Unable to have any control over the water level. -Unable to have any control over the length of time of the cycle. -even the shortest cycle "speed wash" put up a time on the control panel of 35 minutes but it always takes almost double that length of time to complete. -LG tout this washer as "high efficiency" but all that energy saving is lost because it takes twice as long to wash clothes as our previous washer. Very Disappointed Gary

My washer appear the code OE what should I do 

Asked by: Lilyyv
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The OE error code typically will occur when the washer drains slowly or not at all. This can be caused by the drain hose being kinked, pinched or clogged, or if the drain discharge is more than 96” above the bottom of the washer. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

Can I use bleach in my WT1001CW and if so, what is the proper way to wash a bleached load in this washer?

Asked by: Kings0721
Check clothing care labels for special instructions. Measure liquid bleach carefully, following instructions on the bottle. High-efficiency washers use less water, so less bleach is needed. One half cup is enough for most loads. Carefully pour the pre-measured amount of bleach directly into the bleach dispenser. If you are using powdered bleach of any kind, pour it directly into the tub before adding the laundry. Never add powdered bleach to the liquid bleach dispenser. Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly onto clothes or into the tub. Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser. Do not place laundry items on top of the bleach dispenser when loading and unloading the washer. Always measure and pour bleach carefully. Avoid overfilling or splashing when adding bleach to the dispenser. The maximum capacity of the bleach dispenser is one cup of bleach per wash cycle. Overfilling could result in bleach being dispensed immediately, which can result in damage to the clothes in the washer. Additional information can be found on page 16 of the owner’s manual.

My washer is about 4 years old. It is leaving white residue on my darks. I've tried to clean to clean it with no luck. Any help with this would be great 

Asked by: Bill masters
We regret to read that you are getting white residue on your darks when you wash them in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 3.4 cu. ft. Extra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Sleek and Modern Front Control Design, Model # WT1001CW. There are several causes of residue. It can be caused by the detergents you use, or the way you do laundry. There have been changes in detergents, especially since phosphates have been eliminated. Phosphates were used to soften hard water and in some more recent detergents, the substitutes for the phosphates do not do a good job of softening hard water. When those substitute ingredients react with the mineral deposits in the hard water, they form a white residue. You can try changing to low-sudsing detergents like High Efficiency (HE) detergents. Keep in mind that visible suds in the water is not an indication of cleaning power. Detergent is meant to suspend lint and soil in the water during a wash cycle. If you live in an area of hard water and you are washing heavily soiled clothes, you could use slightly more detergent but if that exceeds the manufacturer's recommendations for how much to use or it exceeds the limit line in the dispenser, you might want to look into packaged water conditioners. If you wash on cold water, cold water affects how the detergent dissolves. Granular detergents do not dissolve in cold water and may leave a white residue. It also affects the effectiveness of the detergent. Detergents need a minimum water temperature of 65˚F to activate the ingredients in the detergent. Heavily soiled colorfast items should be washed at a temperature of 85˚F-105˚F which is considered as Warm. Detergent manufacturers and care labels define Cold as 65˚F-75˚F. Take care not to overload either. If there are too many clothes in the tub, the machines ability to rinse away soil and lint is greatly reduced and it gets redeposited on your clothes...^IFV

Can you confirm if I can do a pre-soakcycle? I didn't see it as an option but wanted to double check. Thank you!

Asked by: PreSoak
Thank you for your inquiry. You are correct, the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 3.4 cu. ft. Extra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Sleek and Modern Front Control Design, Model # WT1001CW does not have a presoak option on it...^IFV
