What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this machine! Its unfortunate they discontinued this model. Apparently there is a newer version in all black. I had searched the US for this particular model as it matches my dryer. I really enjoy this washer. Have been using it now for about 3 months and have NO complaints. Clothes get washed well, this washer can handle quite a load too! Love the front facing touch buttons. Overall, very satisfied with this unit. Thanks LG!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Agitator This washing machine does a POOR job of washing clothes. I follow the directions precisely and the clothes are tangled and twisted at the end of the cycle. No soaking cycle!!! Uses a minimum amount of water even though I choose extra water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG - Looks Great! Had rust issues with my previous LG washer. But overall, washer worked great. Noticed new LG washer top section is not made out of metal or steel but fiber glass or plastic which should eliminate the rusting issue. So far new washer works like a charm and overall I am very satisfied. My wife's really enjoying this new guy!

I have the Top Loader 4.9 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Front Control TurboWash® Washer w/ Steam WT1801HVA  I've owned this for just over 3 years and for the last month I've been getting quite a lot of brown flecks after I wash clothes. What is this??

When I slept the spin only option, the tub still fills with water and drains before spinning. How can I get it to simply spin again for a few minutes without filling?  

Asked by: crissy148
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. In reviewing our records, it appears that this model does not have a SPIN CYCLE that does not add some water.

This washer drains the dirt of the clothes?

Asked by: Maria22
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Any dirt that it washed out of the clothing is certainly supposed to be washed down the drain.

My brand new LG washer keeps get UE code and won't finish a load. How do I fix this?

Asked by: Jamielee84
We regret to read that your brand new LG 4.9 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Front Control TurboWash® Washer w/ Steam, Model # WT1801HVA, keeps getting the "UE" code and will not let you finish washing the load. The 'UE' code or the 'uE' codes indicate an unbalanced load.The unit will flash the 'uE' code as it attempts to re-balance the load and if it is unsuccessful after 3 attempts, it will flash the 'UE' code and at that point, it needs your assistance to balance the load. Uneven weight distribution of the load is one cause for an unbalanced load and the other thing you will need to check is the tub alignment. To determine if the tub is aligned correctly, open the lid and check to see if the plastic guard is more exposed on one side more than the other. If that is the case, you will need to raise the leveling feet on the side that the plastic guard is showing more on to align it. Turning the foot clockwise raises the unit and counterclockwise lowers the unit...^IFV

I don't have a hot water supply for this washer and I am not planning to buy a separate heating system either. Will the built-in heater be enough? 

Asked by: Niicole

I read that this does not have a hand washable cycle. Is this true with such a new model.  This cycle is important to me.  Is there something that replaces this?

Are your 4.9 cubic inch washers large enough to wash a king size comforter?
