Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it! I’ve had this washing machine a little over a month, & couldn’t be more pleased. Great features, & the extra fast spin cycle has cut my drying time in half!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing washer We got this washer after mine of 10 years finally went out. I was a lite hesitant to go with the new styles but its said they clean better. Boy do they, my son plays baseball and his pants come out so nice and white with the bright whites cycle, i also decided to put this washer and dryer to the test. I put in my king size down comforter. It cleaned it well on the gentle cycle it cleaned it very well since i could make sure the temp was correct. Then the dryer had it dry and super fluffy in about a hour, no that beat going to the laundry mat and spending money on special washers anytime. My husband works with machines so it gets grease out good and im in the medical feild so i wont say what it gets out of my clothes but i love the antibacterial on the dryer. As for the level problem of the dryer, never had a problem even with the king size comforter. Ours is on the cement slab floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good washer, service call when it was new Happy with it, after it was fixed. Does a good job, haven't explored all features. I was getting the UE code when it was brand new. LG was quick to get it serviced, new motherboard and motor. I would give 5 stars had it worked perfectly when new.

There could be a built in step for height challenged people like my self, I've washed several loads of clothes from every day stuff to extra heavy so far it works like a champ

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with our selection Picked this up as I have heard good things about LG, and at a very fair price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG Washer WT1501CW is horrible 18 months old and the Washer Plate / Pulsator Assembly fails. Bolt loosened up and stripped the plastic gear on the assembly. Now I have to order a replacement for what I know now is a common issue. As a side note, I had the previous model in my last home that we sold. 5 days before closing the motor died, it was only 2 yrs old. Had to buy a new machine for the house I was selling and a new pair for my new home. Not happy with LG at all

This may be a dumb question, but what's the difference between "cold" and "tap cold"?

Asked by: BGRick
Hi BGRick. That is definitely not a "dumb question". Thank you for asking! "Tap Cold" is the temperature of the water coming straight from your tap. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1501CW has a specific temperature range for "Cold", meaning that if the water from your tap is colder than the set temperature, the machine will add a little hot water to get the water to the set temperature range. As a side note, almost all detergent manufacturers offer detergent for the temperature range of 15°C/20°C, 30°C, 40°C, 60°C and 90°C. There are heavy-duty detergents for washing at low temperatures in powder, liquid and gel varieties (with or without bleach) as well as detergents for colored laundry. These detergents should not be dosed higher for the temperatures of 15°C or 20°C than for other temperatures. They wash the laundry clean with considerably less chemicals than 20 years ago. Washing at low temperatures protects the environment and is gentle to clothing and fabrics. You should consider the dosage recommendation from the detergent manufacturer regarding the degree of dirtiness and water hardness...^IFV

Can you wash sneakers in this machine?

Asked by: Stoner82
Like with any other washing machine, if your sneakers are washable, you can wash them in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1501CW. It doesn't have a specific cycle designed for sneakers so you can use the Normal cycle with warm water. You may need to wash them with a towel to dampen some of the banging. Be sure to take the laces off and the inserts. Check with your sneakers manufacturer to ensure that the sneakers can be washed before attempting to wash them...^IFV

How much water does WT1501CW use during any given wash cycle

Asked by: Jackhole
Water consumption varies based on the load sensor, cycle selected and addition option available. It also varies based on the soil level and type of clothing placed in the unit, therefore there is no set amount of water per cycle. ^AC

When do I use the Fabric Softener button?

Asked by: Trudy4
Hello, the unit will automatically dispense your fabric softener, however, pressing the button changes the final rinse from jet spray to a deep tub rinse for a deeper clean. ^AC

I'm having trouble locating the serial number. On the sticker that has the model number and the bar code, is it the number directly to the right of the model number, on top of the bar code? If not, what is the string of numbers below the bar code?
