Hi Kiki,
Thank you for your question on the LG Electronics 5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer, Model # WT1701CW. On the front panel of this unit, you have a time and status display that shows the estimated time remaining and cycle progress and right beside it is the Cycle Status Indicator. Each cycle status indicator is an LED. These LEDs will illuminate when a cycle is selected to indicate which stages will run. When a cycle is running, the LED for the active stage will blink, and the LEDs for the remaining stages will remain steady. Once a stage is complete, the LED will turn off. If a cycle is paused, the active stage LED will stop blinking.
Since you do all your laundry at night, You could start off by using the Delay Wash Cycle! Once you have selected the cycle and other settings, press this button to delay the start of the wash cycle.
Each press of the button increases the delay time by one hour, for up to 19 hours. Once the desired delay time is set, press the START/PAUSE button to start the delay time. be sure to press the START/PAUSE button because if you do not press it to begin the delay time, the washer will automatically shut off after five minutes and all cycle settings will be lost. Other features like the Custom Program (PGM) will allow you to store a customized wash cycle for future use. It allows you to save your favorite temperature, spin speed, soil level, and other options for a cycle, and then recall them at the touch of a button.
So you have a lot of useful features that will make you nighttime laundry easier to handle and afford you time to do other things at the same time!...IFV

Answer: 
The manual states that it is a shorter cycle that still delivers "Maximum Clean" It says it accomplishes this by using different water jets and agitations that change direction throughout the cycle. I tried it once, didn't feel the clothes were as clean. But if you need something quick that isn't very dirty, it is a nice option to have.

Yes you can. the first thing it does is test for load size. Because it will only use as much water as needed to do that particular load. So it doesn't matter the size. It is pretty nice because you just toss the clothes in and don't have to worry about picking anything other they the type of cycle you want.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome We were able to wash and dry a huge comforter in these spirit any hiccups. The clothes coffee out smelling clean and fresh. Definitely a strip up from a prior front losing set we had. May 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not used yet Based on support so far, I would not recommend LG. The matching dryer came out of the box broken with multiple issues on getting it repaired. LG did respond to get it fixed, but the first service repair company finally called me after 3 day which I left 2 messages to call me ASAP. Only after talking to a LG supervisor, a second service repair company was called by the supervisor to get my machine fixed. In fact the supervisor did informed me that she could not get an answer from the original first company, therefore a 2nd repair was contacted. Within an hour. the new repair vendor called and confirmed my problem and scheduled a repair day. BTW, The first service company finally called and was on the way. I turned them around and cancelled them coming. I had called them over 11 times with no answer and left 2 messages requesting them to call me. In fact LG tried to contact them over 2 days and could not get them. Hopefully the new repair company will be here as planned. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LG is a good Brand and lover the design Love this washer and also brought matching gas dryer. If you are not that tall can be a problem to unload the clothes on the very bottom of the tub.The Turbo Wash option is good to wash the clothes. Has a lot of options to wash different types of clothes. Has 10 year warranty on motor .This has a 1100 rpm motor for spin cycle. August 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The biggest regret ever I purchased this washer to replace a washer that I had for ten years,agitator, and still worked fine but we were moving, Within the first four months I started getting the UE code on almost every load. Someone noted below that you have to baby sit this machine... She took the words right out of my mouth, As we speak my machine has been running for 90 minutes and still is UE trying to rebalance itself. I have now owned for 2 years and am just going to cut my loss and replace. I did purchase on an Americam Express. Going to see if they can help me all out with LG. I will say one positive thing..,,,when it finally finishes washing.... the clothes are beautifully cleaned. UGHHHHH and guess what it just stopped now because after 90 minutes it just couldn't rebalance. So guess what that means the dryer needs to now get an extra work out. HUNK OF JUNK January 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Washer Just started using this washer after having a front load and love that it drains properly and don't have to worry about any mildew smell. This is a super large capacity and I look forward to being able to do all my comforters with ease. June 28, 2016
