What people are saying
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I purchased this washer along with an LG dryer and LG refrigerator in August of 2016 along with the 5 yr protection plan from Home Depot. Although I am happy with the dryer and fridge, this is absolutely the worst washer I have ever had!! After every wash, I have to hand vac the machine out because of some sort of debris that is left behind. I have called about this and even had my plumber check it out. LG has been very unhelpful and the “protection plan” a complete waste of money. BTW, I live here with my adult sister and no kids so there is no reason for this to be happening. I am now use to vacuuming after EVERY use but in no way would I ever recommend this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer... Bought this washer a couple of weeks ago. Very happy with its performance. It spins the water out of the load much better than my old washer. Love the ease of use and smart appearance.

What is the part number for the water sensor level? I keep getting excessive errors and think I can replace this and they could possibly stop.

Can Tide Pods be used for H.E. detergent? If so, would the pod be placed where the liquid detergent goes, or placed in with the clothes? Thx!

Asked by: dana721
Look for HE Tide Detergent Pods in your local supermarkets. They will have the HE logo on their packaging to indicate that they are HE Tide Detergent pods or you can contact their manufacturer to inquire if they can be used in HE Washing machines if that is not indicated on their packaging. Tide pods of any type have to be placed in the tub before loading your clothes so you will have to place them in the tub in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1501CW. Do not place them in the detergent dispenser...^IFV

When I put the washer temperature set to HOT, it comes out cold. If I shut off the cold water to the machine, it will then fill with hot water but very slowly. Is the problem the thermistor?

Asked by: DFalati
The first thing to check would be that your hot and cold water lines are connected to the correct inlet valves on the washer and that the hot water supply valve is fully opened. If both of those conditions are verified, the water heater may be too far from your washer. Because the hot water is maintained inside the water heater, the water in the pipes between your washer and water heater is cool. The further away the water heater, the more cool water is in the pipes and the greater the chance the hot water from the water heater never makes it to your washer. To reduce energy consumption, most washers are now designed to limit the amount of hot water during a wash cycle by adding some cold water even when you select hot water. Also if the tap water is warmer than normal, the unit may not require hot water because the water entering the appliance will be at the proper temperature for the cycle.

Does this washer Spray to rinse or Fill up to Rinse?

Asked by: FLTIFF
The SmartRinse™ Jet Spray System in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1501CWis activated during the rinse. As the tub spins, the Jet Spray nozzle sprays water with greater force and as a result, water penetrates into your clothes more deeply, to effectively remove any detergent residue. If the Extra Rinse or the Fabric Softener options are selected, then you get a regular fill and not the SmartRinse™ Jet Spray...^IFV

We have the WT1501CW and I am trying desperately to find the setting to put the machine on long term pause to allow clothes to soak. Long term pause should be until we choose to restart the machine. Pause button as  does not allow for overnight Soaks

Asked by: Gemro
Once you have selected the cycle and other settings, press this button to delay the start of the wash cycle. Each press of the delay wash button increases the delay time by one hour, for up to 19 hours. Once the desired delay time is set, press the start/pause button to start the delay time. ^CP
