What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed How it cleans my clothes Spent a lot of time researching washing machines to replace a very old one. Read wonderful things about HE top loaders. It appears since the water does not even cover the clothes in the drum that my clothes come out spotted. . Especially my Polyester dishtowels and black shirts. It seems it defeats the purpose to add additional water And rinse cycles. I am unhappy with this cleaning system

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Cool We purchased our LG top load washer about a month ago and we love it so far! Our clothes come out very clean and smell awesome. Controls are different from the dials we were used to but are very user friendly. Washer is quiet and plays a little tune when the cyclebis complete. We havent had the washer long enough to notice a decrease in the utility bills. So far, we are very happy with our purchase!!!

Hello - washer was just delivered and installed, and I cannot get it to run the test cycle outlined in the instructions. I tried holding the SPIN and SOIL buttons as instructed for up to 30 seconds, with no success. How can I run the test cycle?

Top Load Washer, Model # WT7100CW. The washer has a depth of 28 3/8" and the part where the lid is hinged is about 6 1/2" from the back so from there to the front of the unit should be 21 7/8"...^IFV
