Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Top Load WT1501CW I bought this March 30 2017. I did alot of research before buying. I went from a front load back to a top load. I love this washer. I bought the set [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor cleaning and twisted clothes This top loading washer uses so little water that the clothes do not come out much cleaner than when they went in. We typically wash sheets, towels and clothing, nothing excessively stained or heavily dirty. Following the final spin on any speed, my sheets, light blankets, towels and clothing come out so twisted that I must untwist them by hand, shake them pout and try to smooth out the wrinkles before drying them. Fabric softener doesn't make any difference. My first top loading, used agitator washer purchased in 1972 for under $100.00 lasted longer and washed better than any brand new so-called energy efficient washers I've owned since.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible machine Worst machine I have ever owned. When I wash my purple bedsheets there is soap residue. Now I'm using a liquid detergent...same thing. I can't even reach to the bottom of the machine to pull clothes out. I have to use a coat hanger it's so deep. Never even thought to check before buying. If a coin is in the machine it locks down. Would never buy another lg product. I'm going to go back to the old fashioned machine with an agitator. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG top load washer AFter enjoying my LG dryer for a couple of years, my washer died.. I love the LG dryer so much and have never had any trouble so I decided to replace my old dead washer with an LG washer that matched. I have only used it a day or so and already love it! Much less water. Clothes come out cleaner and almost soundless operation! I also have an LG cell phone! I am fast becoming an LG fan! Wonderful dependable products! Thanks LG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG -WT1501CW I Love the washer so far. Nice & Quite. Run pretty smooth for now. I would give 5 starts but I only had it 3 months 1/2. The only complaint I have is when my clothes is dry & I take it out from my washer. My body touch against the button & it all lids up. It's so sensitive. I wish they put it on the top of the machine instead in front where you open the top at. It's a good machine. Hopefully it last me long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES lg wt 1501cw DOES NOT CLEAN CLOTHES. There is only 3" of water in the tub to do 2 sheets and two pillow cases on COTTON NORMAL load. Sheets have a large air bubble in the center that is often dry AFTER the wash cycle. R INSE is about one minute of spray wash that does not get the soap off the clthes or sheets. Some items (socks) float during the rinse cycle. SPIN often shuts down with two towels on UNEVEN load after the wash. DO NOT BUY THIS. LG Technician said the washing machine was operating normally. On most loads we have to wash the clothes twice. DO NOT BUY THE LG TOP LOADER [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again! Never again will I ever buy a product from LG! Have had this washer for just over a year and have had absolutely nothing but problems with it! First the water wouldn't come out like it was supposed to and we had to take the filters off the hoses because they were disenagrating! Then we had problems with it not spinning out at all, the cycle would be "done" but the clothes were still soaking wet. The clothes literally dropped water out of them when you picked them up. Now, the water will not turn off at all. You can pause the washing machine or even turn it off and the water keeps pouring out. Just went in to check on it and it is on the spin cycle, but water is still coming out. Found yellow pieces of like screen all over my clothes and completely covering the bottom of my washer! Not happy!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

water plus feature

Don;t like High Efficiency washers because they are using tiny amount of water. Does wahter plus feature allows you to adjust water level to something similar to traditional washer??
Asked by: mike
Yes, you can add more water in this machine. I have not needed to add water, clothing gets clean at normal setting.
