Customer Questions & Answers

How good of a job does it do cleaning the clothes compared to a machine with an agitator?

I currently have a Bosch front loader and it does not clean my clothes at all. Some of the clothes even come out almost dry. Does this machine really use enough water to clean the clothes well?

Can you wash sheets and towels in the same load?

There was a comment on the reviews and we are looking to purchase this product but are wondering if the machine becomes out of balance when you wash sheets and towels together or even mixed clothes. Thanks for the help.

Does the LG Model WT4870CW top load washer have a vibration issue?

Asked by: Anonymous
We do not have a vibration issue. Just put in clothes, sort of even but not carefully placed. If washer is on carpet, you might have too soft a surface, suggest foot pads with downward spikes to make a harder surface.

4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 824.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glad this is discontinued. Wish I hadn't bought this machine. Load it properly, unbalanced load 8 out of 10 times. Clothes come out dirty and still dry. Will never buy a LG washer again. Be glad this is discontinued, at least you won't lose your money on this one... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UE is unbearable. Clothes not cleaned thoroughly. The UE light comes on about every third load, sometimes multiple times per load. We don't overload it, and we take special care to load it evenly, yet despite our best efforts and attention to the matter, the washer becomes uneven way too frequently. We both work full time and don't have the time to play these games with the washing machine. To add insult to injury, it doesn't even clean the clothes very well! We will be selling our house soon, and I must say that we are both looking forward to the day that we can kiss this LG goodbye for good! And we will not be buying another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Always unbalanced We purchased the machine in Dec of 2013. To date we have not had to have it repaired for anything(knock wood). But, the heavy loads, jeans, sheets, towels, blankets, will not spin out without us having to rebalance the load. It happens on almost every heavy load. Tired of it. Would not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish there was zero stars to give. I have had this machine for 3 years and now I can't even run ... Wish there was zero stars to give. I have had this machine for 3 years and now I can't even run it empty without it giving me a UE code. Called LG and they would like me to pay $400 to have someone come out and take a look at it. From the looks of the other reviews, I'm certainly not alone. This is a blemish on Home Depot and LG in my eyes. Thought they were better than this....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from extremely disappointed Before purchasing this washer we bought an LG dryer, which we love. Based on our experience with other LG products and many positive reviews of this washer, we went with this one. What a disappointment it has been. The first couple of times the UE signal came on, I figured it was my fault. I simply redistributed the clothes and pushed start again. Well, after dozens of times doing this, too many hours wasted waiting on a single load of laundry, countless gallons of water wasted as the machine tries to re-balance itself and numerous articles of clothing destroyed during the never ending cycles...I can say that I DESPISE this machine and am completely turned off from LG products. I have four children and do not have the time or resources for the nonsense that this machine consumes. A load that should take an hour can take up to a whole day as the machine continues to add more minutes and water repeatedly and then shuts itself down. Annoying does not begin to describe this machine. Clothes that have gone in on the delicate cycle have come out misshapen and stretched out and still soaking wet. What is the point of the cycle? The tub clean cycle is a joke. It takes all day because the machine continues to say it is unbalanced. What could possibly be unbalanced- there aren't even clothes in it during the tub clean cycle!!! Yet it continues to refill with water and then shut down as the UE code comes on over and over. By no means is it energy saving with the amount of time and water it spends on a single load. And the bleach cup? I have NEVER ruined clothes with bleach until I had this washer. I don't know if the cup doesn't empty completely or if it doesn't run the bleach through all of the way elsewhere in the machine but it is pretty much guaranteed that the next load will also have bleach in it whether intended or not. After numerous articles of clothing coming out with bleach spots during a cycle that I didn't add bleach to, I have had to stop using bleach. That is ridiculous in a household full of active kids. As a parent, I have taught my children to not use the word "hate" as it is often too strong to express how one truly feels beyond the moment of anger, but I will say that after months of frustration, irritation, and yes, anger- I HATE THIS MACHINE. I wouldn't recommend it at all. It was not inexpensive and for the price and LG name I certainly expected a better quality product. Or at least one that functioned properly without costing me time and money. We are done with LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Waste Your Money This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned. The machine is less than two years old and the clutch has gone out. The large capacity tub is a joke because every time you try to do a large wash load the machine constantly gives an "unbalanced" error code. If I could rate this product lower than one star I would. This will be the last LG product I purchase. Also, I live in a rural county and every factory authorized service dealer that LG recommended said they did not service my area. So, besides the poor quality machine, it is difficult to obtain service.
