This LG Washer has a built-in pause button that lets you pause your wash after it starts and drop in a stray piece of clothing
A revolutionary spin on laundry
LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.
When your washer uses about 30% less energy and half the amount of water used by regular washers, you’re going to make an impact—on your utility bills, your energy and water consumption, and most importantly, the environment.

Love this machine, but .....I've had this machine for a few years now and am satisfied with it apart from the fact that some washes come out with black/brown "dirt" on some items - I have to add an extra rinse - which has made our water bill high or I end up hand washing the gunk - out if the item - today it was a pillow and sheets that were effected. This started happening about 8 months ago. Oh and I do use the tub clean feature frequently - hasn't helped.

Simply Awesome!I reluctantly bought this after my "baby" was destroyed by hurricane Florence. Honestly didn't know how I could replace the Maytag. But I bought the LG in 10/2018 and have been completely thrilled! It is actually better than the Maytag as it will tolerate a slightly larger load. I run a rental and have done thousands of loads so far. Only downfall is lots of clean laundry....small dryer...ugggghhhh. Gonna upgrade. :-)

Have to BABYSIT the washer due to UE errorHave had the machine for 2 1/2 years and really enjoy the convenience of the size, however I continually have an issue with the UE error code which causes the machine to continually refill with water to redistribute the load - our water bill is sky-high and as a result I must stand watch over the machine, stop redistribute and even reset to spin only to try to get the clothes dry enough for the dryer. So much for leaving clothes to wash while doing other chores - sometimes it will get down 3 or 4 minutes and the fill with water again etc. So disappointed - have had owner from store where we bought it come out and no answer - paid $70 for an independent repairman - to be told he wasn't sure and never returned my call!! DO NOT PURCHASE!!

Does the nipple on the hot water connection come off
Asked by: jamorjr
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1150CW does not come with the hot and cold water inlet hoses as included accessories. They have to be purchased separately. The 3/4" connectors on either end of the recommended hot and cold water inlet hoses (Part # 5215FD3715U: Hot water hose and Part # 5215FD3715V: Cold water hose) are attached to the hoses and do not come off...^IFV

i have this model and the problem is the water pressure is too low to operate the machine (per tech) it has worked for 2 1/2 years with the same water pressure the tech will not work on the machine until we get the water pressure higher what can i do?
Asked by: joseph mckay
Check the screens inside the water connections. If you have galvanized water piping in the house, rust will dislodge from the pipe and the screen will filter it before it goes into the washer.

On pg 17 step 7 references the add garments light. Where does that illuminate and how long does it take to illuminate once I hit start?
Asked by: AnnieB61
Hello, the Add Garment light is located on the time and status display to the left of the load sensing icon. It will illuminate once the machine is done with its initial sensing of the load. ^AC

My washer is leaving the clothes dirty, I have had a smart diagnostic done and it appears to be no issues but my clothes are coming out dirty. What should I do ?

How to Get the Best Results From a HE Top Load Washer:
>>Always use a laundry detergent with the HE label. These products are formulated to create fewer suds which is important since so much less water is used. Many manufacturers will not honor the machine's warranty if you have not used the correct type of detergent. You can safely use homemade laundry products because they do not produce extensive sudsing.
>>Use less detergent. More is not better when there is less water in the mix. Most loads only require one to two teaspoons of he liquid laundry detergent or one single-dose pack.
If you do not use the automatic detergent dispensers, place the detergent in the bottom of the drum BEFORE you add your dirty clothes. All single dose laundry packs must be placed in the bottom of the washer - never the dispenser. This will give the detergent the longest amount of time in the water to help get your clothes clean.
>>When you load an HE top load washer, do not pile the clothes in the center. Evenly distribute the dirty clothes around the edges of the wash plate. This will help balance the load more quickly and speed the wash cycle.
For best performance, load clothes as shown in manual on page 14. Load clothes loosely, and do not load clothes over the maximum guideline on the tub. Clothes need room to circulate in order to get clean.

The washer has a funny smell to it. We use the tub clean function but it came right back after one wash. I moved the washer and it sounds like water is sloshing around in there. Is this normal?
Asked by: Ashril
Hello, as per the manual, some environmental and usage conditions can cause a residue to build up in the tub over time and can lead to a mildewy or musty smell. The Tub Clean cycle is specially designed to remove this buildup using bleach or other cleaners designed specifically for cleaning washing machines. Run the Tub Clean cycle once a month, or more often under heavy use conditions or if odor is present. Please see your manual, page 25 for more information and the video below. ^AC
