What people are saying
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Bought the washer/dryer set in 2013 and have had several issues with the washer. It seems to always be off balance even during the tub clean cycle. Uses way too much water to get balanced, causing issues with our septic tank & leach field. It is rusted out around the bleach dispenser and leaves a residue on my clothes. And yes I am using the recommend amount of detergent. Made several calls to customer service with no results. I don’t have any issues with the dryer, however I WILL NOT be buying another LG product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusty bucket We have had this this washer for several years and I finally decided to write a review. I like the washer for the most part but it started to rust around the bleach dispenser after about a year. LG’s response was less than satisfactory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Always unbalanced I bought this washer because it didn't have an agitator and it was large. But it's been a terrible purchase. It's always out of balance! I spend more time, money and water trying to through a cycle than I care to talk about.

Rust around the bleach cup on a WT4870CW Washing Machine

Does anyone know if this is an issue with this model? I purchased one yesterday and then discovered that there were more than a few complaints about this problem happening with other similar LG models. Apparently after about a year and a half people start to see rust around the bleach and detergent intakes. Is this an issue with this particular model and if so is it covered under any recall or extended warranty?
Asked by: Lizzie
I have the same problem. My washer is rusted really bad around the bleach cup ... I have chuncks of rusted metal falling into my laundry during wash cycle. I have never seen anything like this. Never will buy another LG anything. After 3 years I have to purchase another washing machine. This is UNFAIR!

Can you use tide pods in the WT4870C?

Asked by: Bmpb2018
Make sure to use HE (High Efficiency) detergent for top loading washing machines. HE detergents dissolve more efficiently and produce fewer suds to ensure efficient washing and rinsing. Use the correct amount of detergent as indicated on the label of the detergent packaging. HE pods can be used with this washing machine. ^CP

My water will not turn off and floods if I try and run a load. My brother said it is probably the cold water inlet valve. Can you please advise how I order this part?
