Customer Questions & Answers

we have hard water, will it plug up the steam jets?

we have hard water, will it plug up the steam jets?
Asked by: smudge
Your owners manual does recommend that you shouldn't use distilled water for your steamer in the 5.2 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer, Model # WT5680HWA which would have been ideal in avoiding hard water! Since that is not an option, the need for regular maintenance is of the utmost importance to prevent the build up of magnesium and calcium deposits which make up the foundation of hard water and can be impossible to remove. Fortunately, steam is one way of removing hard water scale deposits because it softens the water scale deposits up and they fall off. There are industrial cleaners that professionals use to remove water scales, but look in your cupboards for some white vinegar and a toothbrush is the scaling is not severe and you can avert scaling effectively with these household items!...IFV

Can you do small loads in this particular washer?

My current LG will not do small loads.
Asked by: Frustrated
Hello Frustrated, The 5.2 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer, Model # WT5680HWA can accommodate up to a King Size Comforter and the instructions come with a warning against overloading the tub as this may result in you burning out your motor. Washing a small load does not pose any harm to the washer and as long as the load is balanced, the washer can handle small loads. But then again, what do you consider a small load? The WT5680HWA detects the load size and will fill the water accordingly but because of the high-efficiency wash system, the water level may not completely cover the load...IFV

Is the delivery free?

Asked by: Danielle242
The delivery and installation was free , I do not know if this was because of a sale event or if it was a free delivery & installation after spending a certain amount of money ? Not sure but the delivery and installation was free in our case . The Service Guy finally came today and he fixed the problem in about 20 minutes. However the Washer Broke down again this afternoon with the same problem , it seems to happen on the High Temp settings so I do not know if there is a relationship to the setting or coincidence . We have called LG again and we have another 2 day wait for service we have asked for replacement so far the answer has been no , and so far no washer ? WE do not blame Home Depot we feel this is a Manufacture Problem since it only worked 2 days .

Does this tangle and destroy clothes?

Complaints we have been hearing for this and top load washers in general is that it tangles clothes and not gentle enough on clothes. Is this true for this model?
Asked by: NB
Hadn't had any issues with tangling or tearing of clothes so far. We wash at least 1 load per day.

Cloth Diapers with PUL lining

Can this washer handle cloth diapers with the PUL lining?
Asked by: DAtaxe2013
I would say yes. You can increase the quantity of water and that is key for me. There is also features to select water temp so you can do a cold wash first then hot., and, there is an extra rinse cycle. You have to be careful with steam bc of the PUL but perfect for soakers. I bought this with diapers in mind too!

Can i use HE pods in this washer with good results?

Just bought this washer and have a ton of Tide pods to use - want to be sure they'll work well in the washer and also if there are any tips for using them? Thanks!
Asked by: smlusk
That's all we use, and is recommended. We just throw them in the bottom of the drum prior to loading the clothes.

5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 531.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great value and an excellent washing machine. HUGE capacity!! Puts my old front-loader to shame! Top rated value on Consumer Reports and I completely concur. Replaces a 10 your old front loader which cost easily twice as much. HUGE capacity, but still high efficiency and adjustable load size. Clothes seem cleaner, loads take less time and the washer is quieter (except during the fill cycle). Not you Grandma's old top loader and it has no agitator. Just make sure the clothes are evenly distributed for balance. Smoked glass top lets you peek inside. I would recommend it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from google "rust washing machine" and read the results... LG comes up and it ruins your clothes. LG recall. I've had this machine for only 2 years. Similar models have been recalled. I thought I was buying quality. Here's 2 problems: 1. It doesn't clean the clothes. With 2 white towels, a few tshirts, undergarments, NOT OVERLOADED. You can still see my makeup foundation and mascara on the towels. Didn't clean it at all. Which means 2 things... I need to find a new makeup remover and a new washing machine:) 2. The bleach area rusts and when you fix it, days later it returns and spreads rust marks to your clothes. When I was trying to see how to fix it, I googled "How to remove rust from your washing machine" And LG came up with all the reviews. I didn't even google LG. Not Good. I thought I would have this machine for at least 5 years and just after the first year, I've been wanting to buy another one. I'm just too cheap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Ever!!! I have had this washing machine for a close to a year. First off it doesn't clean clothes plus it rips your clothing. I wouldn't recommend filling the tub up more than half full. I have a family of six so not being able to use the washer to its full capacity is not good. It barely agitates the clothes and the clothes float on top of the water. I had to cater to the washing machine by buying different soap, adding oxy to every cycle and doing an extra rinse cycle so all the soap can be rinsed off. If your clothes are heavily soiled then learn to live with the stains because it doesn't get them out. Don't know why this machine got great reviews???? I would recommend sticking to the old school washers then wasting your money on a over priced washing machine the has a lot of bells and whistles that I probably won't use anyway. They definitely don't make them like they used to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stop! Do not buy this washer! The EPA has made the manufacturer regular the amount of water. It may be a top loader but don't think you are going to get much water in the huge tub unless you are washing on the bedding cycle. Clothes do not get cleaned and the cycles last forever! I thought I was getting a quality product but I wasn't. I have had it repaired twice already. The detergent tray had to be replaced because it would not empty out. Water left in the tray that had to be dumped before using again. Also the switch to turn on the unit fails all the time. I have to let it set for at least 15 minutes between loads to get it to turn on again. Repair came out and said nothing was wrong but it continues. Now it is out of warranty. Great!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it, at first. Very disappointed now. We have owned this washer and dryer set for 3 1/2 years. The washer is beautiful, has a nice big tub for clothes, and has always performed well. We purchased it because Consumer Reports listed it in the top 3 back when we bought it. BUT... My wife informed me that she was seeing rust around the bleach dispenser. Upon further inspection, we realized that there was quite a bit of rust on the inside of the top metal casing. Upon even further inspection, we realized that the washer was dripping into the tub, and looked like the water shut off valve was not fully functional. Fortunately, we had purchased the 5 year warranty through Home Depot. However, that was also a very big hassle. It took them over one month to get our washer back into working order. For the last several days I was calling daily and demanding that we get a new replacement unit. That didn't happen, but they somehow got the correct working parts to our repair man. But beware of the warranty - they are allowed to use "refurbished" parts. The new replacement part has a more scratched up stainless steel lip on the top glass door than our original. Also, the soap dispenser is much more worn than our original. It works, but I feel like my "new" machine is not anymore. Had to use a laundromat twice during that time (for a family of 5) and used $75 (of which warranty only claims to cover $50 - I have yet to file for this reimbursement, so I hope they will do the right thing, but not counting on it at this point). Felt like I only got attention from Home Depot warranty service when I started calling daily and pushing for replacement of our machine. Even so, I could never get anyone with the warranty service to "own" my situation. Never could get a last name or a direct phone number /extension for follow up. Requested a service manager call several times, but they would not read the notes and would call my home phone and leave a voice mail instead of calling my cell phone as I had requested, and then leave the generic Home Depot warranty number only. Bottom line, my previous washer lasted over 15 years and never had a bit of rust. Anyone I talk to in the family has never experienced this with any washer. But if you start reading the reviews here, you'll see that many are dealing with this. Don't let the beauty of this machine lure you in. I regret our purchase. Thankful the warranty finally has us back up and running, but still regret this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We had our washer for 1.5 yrs, worked fine and then it stopped working properly, we got a UE mess... We had our washer for 1.5 yrs, worked fine and then it stopped working properly, we got a UE message, saying it was unbalanced but it wasn't physically unbalanced and we tried redistributing the clothing, nothing. The load would get to the last several minutes and would then not spin but would rather keep filling up with water endlessly. We called LG and they offered to send a technician for about $300. It's been less than 2 yrs and they're requesting almost half of the cost of the machine to come take a look, makes no sense. Will not be buying another LG product, cheaply made and they break down too quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it better than my front load! I bought the WT5680HWA to replace my aging Sears front load washer and I really agonized about not staying with the front load system. Problem is, I had the mold issue with my front load and I didn't want to go another decade leaving the door open all the time. Wow, am I glad I bought the top load! Neat and tidy - I can now reach shelves above it - and big enough to wash a king size comforter. Plus, it is so quiet and the house doesn't shake when it goes into a spin cycle!!! Our clothes come out fresh and clean - I see plenty of wash water, unlike some reviews have stated, our machine does it's job with quiet efficiency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE MY NEW WASHER!!! I have had my new washing machine only a couple of weeks, and so far I love it, love it, love it! This is my first REALLY NICE washer in 30+ years of owning washing machines, and I find myself stopping in front of my laundry room doorway and just staring at it and thinking how beautiful it is . . . I suspect much the same way men stare at their new car purchases! Love the little tune at the end of the cycles too; my 10+ year old former washer didn't make any sound when it was done, unless you count the clang bang clang it made when everything stopped!
