What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly kind to my clothes! It washes the most delicate fabrics to blue jeans and gets them clean with touch-less agitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from getting it back and running we have owned the washer dryer set for 9 years..7 of nine all worked fine. Now a 375 dollar spend has hopefully corrected the bouncing and walking due to two of the four shocks..the tech from Family Appliance was very helpfull and knowledgeable...says we ideally should be good for maybe another 4 to 7 years use. We use it for a 4 loads a week is all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Rust problem I’ve had this less than 5 years and the top is badly rusted. Also, who makes a washing machine without a DELICATE cycle???? I can understand why this model has been discontinued.

After any cycle is complete and the lights go off, something is still running. Motor or pump?

My washer recently started leaving lint residue on clothes after the wash cycle. Where is it lint trap or pump filter. Top load wave force direct drive 

Asked by: Kitti
The lint filter for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.7 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with WaveForce™, Model # WT5070CW is part of the drain pump. Excessive lint on clothes after washing may also indicate that the water pump filter is clogged. When that happens, the wash and rinse water with all that suspended lint drains too slowly and leaves deposits on wet clothes. There are external lint filters that can be connected to the washer to prevent this problem. Fabrics made of natural fibers like wool and cotton generate more lint than fabric made from synthetic materials, so you may want to separate your clothes accordingly. Washing lint shedding clothes on a gentler cycle means the fibers of the fabric will be disturbed less, meaning they will shed less lint...^Ivan

How can I remove the inlet valve? The water gets sucked back into tub after wash cycle?

Asked by: Mandy P
Removing the water inlet valve on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.7 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with WaveForce™, Model # WT%070CW will require some disassembly of the machine where you will need to first unplug the machine then remove the control panel, unplug some wires then remove the cabinet to gain access to the water inlet valves. You will then need to remove the hoss from the valves, taking care to note which hose is for the hot water and which is for the cold water, then remove the connectors from the valves, and again, know which connector is for the hot water and which is for the cold, remove the mounting screw for the connectors, then slide the valves from the back panel, and replace them. Depending on your skill with this type of work, you may or may not need a service manual, but the service manual may only be available to Authorized Service Technicians or Authorized Service Centers...^IFV
