What people are saying
Rated 1 out of 5 by from More of the same problems reported I really wanted to like this washer, but it's time to get rid of it after 4yrs of disappointment. This washer was well reviewed on Consumer Reports, and I'm sure it's a reliable machine that's durable. It's been reliable for the 4yrs we've owned it, but it simply does NOT get clothes clean and leaves residue and/or stains on clothes, especially dark clothing. Whites do not get clean and end up gungy and grey. Sheets never seem to be clean. LG totally missed the boat on providing HE without sacrificing cleanliness, something we use this appliance for.....in the first place.... It seems like it was their beta model for HE. Agree with all the other reviewers on it just not cleaning clothes properly. Can't tell you how many times I've started to put on my black jeans only to find white stains all over them. I can only assume it's soap that was never washed out. Also can't count how many times my wife has complained about stains/residue and how LONG it takes to do a load. I know it's discontinued, but wanted to post this so folks don't buy a used one or refurbished one without knowing the full story on it. It could be a decent washer for a college student who has time to leave a load going for hours and can get by with slightly clean clothes??? Otherwise pass...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So unhappy Item was in Consumer Reports, but has been terrible from the get go. The water doesn’t rise above the clothes. The clothes don’t move freely under the water. I have to do a whole separate load with no soap if I’m washing athletic wear because the soap does not come out. White pants and ivory pants have been damaged. Sometimes items come out dirtier than when they went in. And now, four years in, it’s not draining. I’m reading reviews on getting it fixed and with labor, I’m looking at spending at least $300. At least it’s a good reason to finally get rid of it! Bottom line, I’ve never been more dissatisfied with an appliance purchase. And I’ve tried everything including adding water. It often drains the water before I can turn it on. Good riddance!

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

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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

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
