Does this machine get exercise dri fit fabrics clean?

This question is from 4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
October 15, 2016
We've tried a HE front loader machine before and it could not get exercise clothes clean because of the low amount of water. We went back to a regular old agitator top loader and it works great for dri fit clothes. Would this machine with water sensing like the front loader work well for this type of fabric? Does it get tangled?

Once the Start/Pause button on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer in White, Model # WT1701CW is pressed, the washer will measure the size of the load then change the estimated time and automatically adjust the wash time for the amount of laundry, water pressure, water and other operating conditions. Unlike the Front Loaders that tumble your clothes in such a way that saturates your clothes fully, if you need to add more water to your wash load, you can press the 'Water Plus' option, however, if the machine has reached its' maximum water level, the Water Plus button will have no effect. Unlike older Top Load washing machines, this washer does not have an agitator in it, it has an impeller. Washers with agitators aggressively rotate within the tub which can be hard on fabrics, especially delicate fabrics. An Impeller on the other hand is a low-profile plate located in the bottom of the washer that replaces the agitator. It creates turbulent currents in the water within the drum as it rotates. This results in a gentler wash action with less water. The impeller theoretically does not come in contact with the clothes so they will not tangle...^IFV Read Less

As for "King Size Sets" that will depend on the fluffiness factor of the comforter set...^IFV

How do I force the WT1701CW to drain?

This question is from 4.9 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
June 26, 2016
So I tried to wash a cushion using my washer (WT1701CW). The load-sensing went bonkers, and ultimately couldn't sense it properly, thereby proceeding to fill the tub about 3/4 full of water. I took the cushion out, and ended the cycle. Now I have a tub full of water. How do I force the washer to drain the water from the tub? I cannot find any info on the matter. Thanks!

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 501 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love, love, love this wash machine! I actually look forward to doing laundry every week. It is sleek, attractive and I love the see through top. The push button display is very easy to use. No more unbalanced loads. Too many features to mention all. A few of my favorites are sani-wash and extra water. It's easy to pause the machine to add extra items. Also I love that there is a timer that tells you when your load will finish. If there is a dislike (and this does not apply to me because I am tall) the drum is very deep and if you have short arms it might be difficult to reach items at the bottom). Best wash machine I have owned! October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this washer When my washer died I had to do a lot of research for the best machine for what I could afford. I searched different sites for different reviews as I find some reviews are basically paid for. This was rated pretty high from consumer Reports. I purchased this because it was the best machine I could afford and I am so happy with it. Like other reviewers pointed out, it is slower than a normal top load machine but this is a non issue for me. And it is deep so you need to be at least 5'6" to reach in. My daughter who is 5' tall needs a chair to remove the clothing. All in all a great purchase, I am saving for the dryer now because my regular dryer cannot keep up with the large loads. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very modern washing machine It is taking me a while to learn how to use it -- all those options and buttons to push Wonderful about water consumption -- very impressive Clothes get really clean. The tub is so large it is hard for me to reach to the bottom for the small things. But I am 5'1. October 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Washing machine broke after 2 years of light use. The control board malfunctioned and cost almost $400.00 to repair, which is more than half of what the washer cost in the first place. LG customer service was terrible. Don't waste your time or money on this product. October 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Oh to have purchased the agitator model. Initial opinions: Keeping the unit in balance is paramount to avoiding premature breakdowns. The tub depth, although great for large loads, makes it difficult to retrieve small items, unless you're tall. (I strained my back). Be sure to keep a grabber at hand. Extended Warranties can be costly & typically expire right before breakdowns occur. The agitator models, though considered passé by the younger generation & questionably less efficient, are less problematic. For this reason, I would not recommend this product October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by top load washer I am thrilled with this choice. Performance is outstanding. Capacity is huge! I would highly recommend this washing machine October 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Make sure you get the extended warranty! I purchased my washing machine in June 2015, and one year and three months later, I am waiting on an estimate from an appliance repair person. I called the 800 number in the manual. The first person I spoke to tried to diagnose the washing machine over the phone, but she could not find anything wrong. The next LG customer service person I spoke to said that I could pay $400 for an extended one-year warranty, or I could pay $302 for a one-time service visit. He then told me that after I gave him my credit card number we could set a repair appointment! No thank you. I went to Home Depot to seek help; the manager was in a meeting. I have called a local appliance repair, and their diagnosis is that the clutch needs repair. I have done some online research, and this part is not cheap. AVOID THIS MACHINE! September 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Washer at a Super Price! I LOVE this washer. I have had front loaders for years - so wasn't sure how I would like a top loader, but I love it. Super quiet - even when spinning - as compared to my previous front loader that sounded like a jet airplane taking off when in the spin cycle. Does not use a ton of water like old top loaders - gets the clothes really clean. Controls might look complicated - but they are actually very intuitive and easy to use. Would highly recommend this washer - which has very high ratings from Consumer Reports btw - it gives you a lot of bang for your buck. September 14, 2016
