What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had To Replace With A New Brand After 5 years Bought the matching LG washer dryer set Dec 2016. The washing machine spin cycle recently stopped working. LG certified tech came to the house to diagnose the situation. He did some research and he made a call to LG it was believed to be a sensor issue. However it was mentioned that actual electronic board could be an issue as well. Just to get the part and replace the sensor the cost was almost half of what you would pay for a new washing machine. Because of the uncertainty between the sensor and computer board we made the decision to purchase a new washing machine. There was a fair deal on another brand washing machine so we made the purchase and had it delivered and installed. Because of the coast of the part and repair, it seemed to make sense but unfortunately we no longer have a matching washer dryer set or even the same brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Help! Looking for Replacement Hello- my wife and I absolutely loved this model washer and dryer bundle. Unfortunately we moved and they were left behind. Now that this model is discontinued does anyone know what model replaced it or is closest to it? Thank. You

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good washer with lots of features We've owned this for 8 years now. Within the first couple years we had one of the fill valves in the back leak. It was fixed, but we had to pay for it so that wasn't great for such a new washer. Outside of that, it has been solid with the exception of some periodic odor from the tub. You need to run clean cycles on this washer on a regular basis to avoid that. Not the washers fault, but be sure you do this. The only other issue we have is ergonomic rather than the washer not performing. It has a deep tub, so if you are short (or your spouse is short), you need a stool to reach the bottom of the tub. All that said, after the fill valve issue, it has been a solid washer with no major concerns. It cleans well and washes a lot of clothes, sheets, or whatever you throw at it and does a good job.

Where is the drain filter located on the lg smart drum WT1201C?

Asked by: Jamie1424
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design and WaveForce™ Technology, Model # WT1201CV relies on a filter in the pump that self-cleans, meaning that there's no need for maintenance on your end...^Ivan

My washer keeps claiming the loads are uneven.  4 out of every 5 loads takes multiple times of readjusting and starting again only to stop again within minutes no matter the setting I use!  Is there anything that can be done or is this a flawed machine

Asked by: Tae788387
Have you checked to make sure that the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design and WaveForce™ Technology, Model # WT1201CV is leveled properly? If the washer is not leveled properly, that will cause it to display the uE error code to indicate that the washer has detected an out-of-balance load or the UE error code to indicate that the automatic attempt to rebalance the load was unsuccessful. The UE error code will also display if the load is too small or if heavy items are mixed with lighter items. With the washer empty, select the RINSE and SPIN cycle then press start to run the Rinse and Spinn cycle to see if it displays the uE/UE error codes again. If the error codes are displayed again, it means that the unit is not working properly and will require repair service. If it does not display the error codes, it does not require repair service. It means that the washer is not properly leveled. Open the lid and look inside to see if the plastic guard is exposed more to one side than the other. If one side is exposed more than the other, you will need to raise the side to which the tub is leaning. You can also use a level to see if the washer is properly leveled. Inspect the tub level by opening the lid to see if the tub is centered and not tilted to one side. Again, if the tub is not centered, adjust the leveling feet. After the washer is properly leveled, run a test load by placing about six pounds of laundry in the washer then press Power & select Rinse Spin, and press Start/Pause. When the washer starts running, check to see if it rocks or vibrates during the spin cycle. If it does, repeat the leveling procedure. Getting the washer exactly level can be tricky...^IFV
