What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wont spin. Out of balance on every load Look up the reviews on other sites. All the LG top load washer stuggle with load balance issues spinning out water. It will take you 4 hours to complete a load. You have to babysit these hunks of junk. Better off buying a rock and beating the water out ot would take less time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not your typical top loader I love this washing machine! I have only had it for a few months now, but it is a rather sleek design, is very easy to operate, does not shake the whole house like my previous non-LG washer did at times, and handles twice the load size. I am particularly impressed with the absence of a central agitator as it makes getting the clothes out super easy. For a family of 4, this washing machine is a huge time saver and cleaning powerhouse. Although I haven't made use of the app yet, the washing machine is all set up over our wifi. Pretty incredible that the smart diagnostics tool could help LG troubleshoot remotely if need be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! One fantastic washing machine. Very efficient, judges the load, no agitator so no twisted clothes. Extremely large capacity. Very quiet. Clothes clean like a dream. BEST ONE I'VE EVER OWNED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST washer I ever used I love my new washer....only problem is that it is so big and deep...and as a 5 foot little lady...it is very difficult to reach things on the bottom. To solve that problem, I keep a long tongs.nearby..and can reach anything still at the bottom. It is so beautiful...that I find I need to show it off to anyone that comes into my house. It is easy to use after I have worked with it for a while and became familiar with it.

Zigbee Module

Where can I purchase the ZigBee Module for this? My washer did not come with one, just a WiFi Module.
Asked by: CntryDoe
We appreciate your interest in the operations of this washing machine. A ZigBee modem relates to different utility companies. The manufacturer does not supply this device. However, it may be possible to obtain them online, or at your local Radio Shack. It may also be possible that the utility company may carry them.

can I get a front load washer with a door that swings left to right?

Current application need door to swing with hinge on the right so wet clothes can be put in dryer without lifting over the door
Asked by: Mamma
Top loaders do not have doors that swing to the side, our front-loading washers always have the hinge on the left.

Water level in wash cycle seems extremely low. Water does not cover the cloths. Is this right?

Washer is WT5070CW
Asked by: FJay
I believe this is right...I think the wash load is weighed in the beginning and the correct amount of water is put in. I trust the washer.
