What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Capacity! I was not sure I was going to like a washing machine without a central agitator but this one really does the job. Clothing is nice and clean and the machine is very quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective Been using this washer for a few months now. It's simple & easy to use. My teens love it as well because of how easy it is. My only con is that my daughter and I are both short and this machine is tall/deep. Don't get me wrong...that's a great thing when washing bedding. However, I need a step stool to get the socks that always end up on the bottom by themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Purchased this LG Washer online from Home Depot..It was delivered and ready ro go and I did the easy hook-up. We did purchase the correct hook up hose recommended by LG. My family is very happy with this beautiful washing machine. We have put this machine to the test and every function performs perfectly. There are many nice features on this machine. It is quiet when washing. energy effcient, use any combination of water and measures any amount of load for water use saving over use of water, spin dry works so well that clothes need much less drying time, and the music instead of the buzzer is super etc.

Do I load my clothes before powering on the washer or do I load all of my clothes once the “Add Garments” light comes on? I’m confused by the wording in the manual. 

Asked by: Chrissy0830
Hi Chrissy0830. The only time that you put your laundry into the tub before powering the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer, Model # WT1301CV on or after you power it on is at the beginning of the wash cycle. The power button does not initiate the wash cycle so there is no required sequence for when you put the laundry into the tub. Once you have your laundry loaded, you would need to press the Start/Pause button to start your selected cycle. The 'Add Garments Light' will illuminate near the beginning of the wash cycle to indicate when it is safe to add items to the load if you forgot to put a laundry item into the tub when you first started the wash cycle. When the 'Add Garments Light' illuminates, you will need to press the Start/Pause button to pause the cycle so you can add any laundry items that you might have forgotten to include in the load. Pressing the Start/Pause button again resumes the cycle...^IFV

Washer keeps powering off (and will not power back on until hours later) during heavy duty cycle. The washer is full of water, lid is locked, and won't power on until 3+ hours later. Does this same thing ever time. No breaker trips. Outlet stil works.

IE MESSAGE IS COMING UP ????

Asked by: Courtneygiles11
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The IE error code is indicative of a restricted water supply to the machine. The IE code will display when the washer fills with water slowly or not at all. Some possible causes of this code are: the water supply taps not being fully open; the water lines are kinked or pinched; the water inlet filters are clogged; the water pressure to the tap or to the house is too low. If these have all been checked, and the problem persists, then the washing 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.

In the area where time of cycle is located, there is a red circle with a slash through what looks like a key.  What does this mean?

Asked by: Gardengirliz
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine and its features. The icon described is the LID LOCK INDICATOR light. This will illuminate once a cycle has begun. It will remain active until the cycle is paused, stopped or finished. This information is found on page 18 of the owner’s manual.

How do you get it to fill with more water? Only 1/2 of my clothes get wet. There are also detergent stains on my clothes because the clothes on the bottom are the only ones getting completely wet. I have tried everything..

Asked by: S Stively
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. If additional water is needed for the wash cycle, it is suggested to utilize the WATER PLUS option. Press and hold the EXTRA RINSE button for 3 seconds to activate this feature.
