Product Overview

Think big loads mean big noise? Think again. This 5.0 cu. ft. mega-capacity washer from LG is the largest top-load washer available, yet it is one of the quietest. LG TrueBalance ensures even your largest loads are smooth and quiet. From the time-saving performance of TurboWash, which saves up to 20 minutes on the cycle, to the gentle cleaning power of steam in this washer, you've got the capacity to wash more than ever while hearing less in the next room.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

  • With the largest capacity top-load washer in its class* at 5.0 cu. ft., you can fit a comforter and full set of king size bedding in a single load. *Based on manufacturer's published specs of top-load washers with a width of 27 in. or less
  • NeveRust stainless steel drum and impeller are made of durable, rust-resistant stainless steel, avoiding nicks that can snag fabrics
  • LG's steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles
  • WaveForce technology utilizes rapid drum movement and powerful water jets to provide thorough washing action that's gentle on clothes

I'm also looking at the matching electric dryer model but concerned that I need to fill the tub to get the steam cycle going...How frequently do I need to fill it up? each cycle?

I'm going for an unmatched pair just because of that extra work I might need to do - why does it not have a direct pipe hookup like the WT1701CV?

Answer: 
Water supply hoses were not included but if you hook it up yourself you can use your old ones and save $20. If HD hooks them up they make you buy new ones but give you a choice between the standard black rubber ones or the fancy SS wrapped ones, which do cost more.

Just bought the above mentioned washer online last night, getting them delivered and installed next week. During the check out process you will see pop up boxes with requirements and options for each unit that you are purchasing.
***** REQUIRED parts for this unit - 2 upgraded stainless steel washer hoses *****
When you check the box they pop up with a cost of (21.96). However, they were rotated into the cost of the unit, so it did not charge me anything additional throughout the check out process.
My husband and I were taking our old units out and he had a good question... "wonder if the new one comes with a 'drain hose'?" I researched all over the Home Depot site and didn't see that information anywhere (he was going to pull our old one off just in case), but I did call the customer service number and asked them if it comes with one.
This washer DOES come with a new drain hose already attached to the unit.
Same thing happened with the dryer that I purchased to go with the washer - DLEX5780VE
***** REQUIRED parts - dryer power cord (20.96) and Semi-rigid dryer duct (24.99) *****
These listed costs were also rotated into the cost of the unit, so it did not charge me anything additional throughout the check out process.
** OPTIONAL service - Door Swing Change (not French door, which came up as a 0.00 cost) I chose this option because it was one of the features that I preferred about the unit... the fact that the dryer door will open downward instead of one side or the other.
Lastly, If you choose not to purchase the additional warranty, you will automatically get The Home Depot Protection Plan which is in fact the Manufacturer's Standard Warranty which in 'INCLUDED' in the price of all units.
LOTS OF INFO... BUT IF I HAVE HELPED AT LEAST ONE PERSON, then I have done a good deed. Read Less

I went with what Home Depot recommended during installation the braided stainless steel rubber coded, but what I have read on the LG web site hoses for this washer should come with the washer, and according to the Home Depot product description they are also included, but I am guessing they are just regular rubber hoses.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 415 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rust Bucket We purchased this product as part of a pair. Sadly within the year I started noticing rust appearing around the bleach dispenser. I called Home Depot who referred me to the LG company. I called with my issue and was told after many calls that LG does not warranty the body of the washer. My husband used a Dremel to remove the rust and painted it with rust prevention paint. Sadly it's returning. I love this machine for bedding and down comforters. So I'm glad I bought it for that but will need to replace eventually. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Washer After reading reviews, I had mixed feelings about buying this washer. But after reading Consumer Reports high ratings, I decided to get one. I'm Happy I did! This washer has great features, its also efficient, and best yet, it does a great job cleaning. One important thing from reading reviews and instructions, Make sure the installer levels the machine. When they came and installed it, they were getting ready to leave without doing that. I had to ask and then he did level it. And its good i did, the machine was off both sideways and front to back. after watching how this washer works, I can see how it would have problems if it wasn't level. If your in the market for a great washing machine, make this one your choice, you will not be disappointed. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it thus far We've only had the washer for a little while but love it thus far. The capacity is HUGE, the options for wash cycles are vast, and it uses less energy and much less water than our previous washer. The installation was really quick and painless. It was a great value for what you get and if you're looking for a top-loader, definitely consider this model. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lg Good item jus the price is litle high but nice product August 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Washer. What used to take 2 loads, now it can be done in 1 load, using the same amount of water and time! I can wash my comforters and large items right in my home!! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding High Efficiency Washer!! I'm really please with efficiency, performance and reliability of this washer. Great LG product sold by Home Depot. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Huge washing machine It's great but the self adjusting load size is hard to get used to. August 23, 2016
