Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate this washing machine The washer does not spin the clothes dry with out going out of balance. Then it fills with water again, agitates the clothes and tries to spin again. I have attempted 8-10 spins and just given up and threw the wet clothes in the dryer after ringing them out myself. I HATE this washing machine. If I could lift it by myself it would be in our dumpster.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overly Water Conservative Two basic complaint issues - one, in it's effort to conserve water it never fills enough to cover the clothes. To resolve this I have to choose the bulky items setting which fills the washer all the way, even though a total fill wasn't necessary but I'm out of options. The picture I've included is of 2 light weight puppy beds, one on top of the other, well into the wash cycle. Assuming more water than even that, I put in soap. But as you can see, the bottom bed isn't even covered so there is far too much soap for 3 inches of water. This is typical. And two, the out of balance spin is over sensitive. It seems it really has a hard time with anything other than clothes, like small throw rugs, and it is always out of balance. I would not choose this washer again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst machine ever!! I replaced a front loader with this machine. The sales person recommended this washer and the fact that there is no agitator for clothes to get tangled on. Well, I have to babysit every load of laundry!!! It doesn’t matter how big or small the load. It always goes ‘uneven’ and the machine continues to refill with water attempting to even the load, which doesn’t work!!! So I have to reposition the wet clothes and wait by the washer to make sure that it works. It is a waste of time! Never again will I buy an LG washer! Their engineers blew it on this model!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I’ve had this machine for 4 years. 1. It doesn’t have an oxi-clean dispenser. The LG customer service representative said they do not recommend the use of oxi-clean in the machine at all. That’s a shame because... 2. If doesn’t clean clothes. My husband’s clothes come out still smelling like cologne and deodorant. All of our towels are dingy and have streaks and stains on them, even when washed in hot water with bleach. 3. The chrome rim under the water dispenser frequently gets pink mildewy crud on it even though we leave the lid open. 4. The machine frequently has trouble staying balanced with a normal load of laundry and after some very loud banging it stops, fills again, sloshes around, and then attempts to drain and spin. We have to babysit each load in case this happens. 5. Sometimes during the rinse cycle the drum will rotate once, hesitate, rotate again, hesitate, and repeat this process, without draining the water, until we press the Pause/Start button to reset it. More laundry babysitting! This machine makes laundry a nuisance. I can see why it’s been discontinued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Balancing problems This washer we've had for less than 4 years and have had a lot of problems... Even after replacing the suspension system it has much difficulty balancing loads and seems to use a lot of unnecessary water.

The detergent box does not drain. At the end of the cycles it is overflowing with ester mixed with a little detergent. I have cleaned everything thoroughly. Does same thing w/o using detergent too.

If the detergent dispensers have been cleaned and they are still filled with water, the unit may require service.

I have a WT1201C washer and I am getting the OE code. I have checked all hoses etc.  however when I take the clothes out of the drum it drains just fine. Could it be a sensor of some sort? 

Asked by: JC98
It would be suggested to also check the drain filter being clogged. If checking this also does not resolve the matter, then the machine 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.
