Clothes have streaks of lint/dirt AFTER WASHING
Ugh! I’m just sick of this issue. Clothes have lines of dirt in the creases created by the spin on this machine. I don’t think the water gets in to disburse the dirt/lint/dry soap or whatever the stuff is on the clothes. I’ve cleaned the drum, used the Water Plus and Extra Rinse features, no help.
I don’t recommend. So frustrating

How to Get the Best Results from a HE Top Load Washer: Always use a laundry detergent with the HE label. These products are formulated to create fewer suds which is important since so much less water is used. More is not better when there is less water in the mix. Most loads only require one to two teaspoons of HE liquid laundry detergent or one single-dose pack. If you do not use the automatic detergent dispensers, place the detergent in the bottom of the drum BEFORE you add your dirty clothes. All single dose laundry packs must be placed in the bottom of the washer - never the dispenser. This will give the detergent the longest amount of time in the water to help get your clothes clean. When you load a HE top load washer, do not pile the clothes in the center. Evenly distribute the dirty clothes around the edges of the wash plate. This will help balance the load more quickly and speed the wash cycle. For best performance, load clothes as shown in manual on page 14. Load clothes loosely, and do not load clothes over the maximum guideline on the tub. Clothes need room to circulate in order to get clean.

TOP LOAD WASHER IN BLACK STAINLESS STEEL
For the price, this washer is an absolute steal. This washer is packed full of different functions and features for various clothing items. Washer has a load sensing feature so it doesn't get out of balance and is super quiet while running. Open the top door and pull a handle to reveal the easily accessible detergent holder. Washer has a beautiful stainless steel finish for that modern look. Definitely recommend this washer, especially at this price.
This is a great washing machine. If you are in the market for a new washing machine (and matching dryer), this is definitely a great purchase. I've owned this machine for over a month now and I've used it multiple ways to wash clothes. Let me tell you, I JUST LOVE it. Right from the beginning, HD set up delivery and it was flawless. They came in and set it up and gave me a basic usage overview which I appreciated but there's a lot of features on this machine so reading the manual is a must to learn all that it can do. It was a little different from my front loader I was replacing so the first few times I did laundry, it was a plus already as I could pause the started cycle and add garments right away. With my front loader, I couldn't do that without draining the drum. A+ already... Ok, Did I say I JUST LOVE It? I'll list some things I really like :
1- easy set up: Hot / cold hoses, drain hose and power cable
2- ease of use: put in laundry, detergent / softener and push power, select cycle and start
3- features: Normal, Heavy Duty, Bulky, Bright Whites, Oxi Sanitize, and Tub clean and many more.
4- Black stainless steel color
5- Very Large capacity - HUGH Drum
6- Energy efficient - have notice a small reduction in water bill
7- Very Quiet
A couple minor dislikes :
1- tried to get the wifi/remote functions to work and had lots of issues - (I'm a tech guy too and could sometime get connectivity but couldn't get to work at all.) * But I didn't get these for that feature so I didn't deduct or this
2- I'm 5'7 and my wife is 5'6 - I have no issues reaching small items like socks in the bottom but she does. It's a deep tub/drum (also didn't deduct from stars and its not LG's problem she is short or has short arms... Just putting this as a dislike and letting you know in case you have someone vertically challenged doing laundry. Get a small stool and keep it close or one of those grabbers work too.
Finally, Time will tell in the long run how long it will last, but LG seems to have gotten it right with this machine. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
About the machine: It is FABULOUS, high tech, beautiful color, silent operation and it gets our cloths clean and our whites white. It has lots of capacity, in fact more that we need. Because of its leading-edge technology it has an elaborate set of options that we are only beginning to use. The control buttons are very user friendly allowing you to get comfortable with them very quickly.
We chose this machine because of its color, it’s a top loader, and I wanted something that would help in making our home a “smart home”. We are very pleased with our choice and would highly recommend it. One word of cautious. We are short people; my wife is 5’ 4” and it is difficult for her to reach the bottom of the tub.
A little bit about everything else: My wife and I moved up from a 20-year-old Maytag washer and an old Kenmore dryer to this leading-edge washer and its companion dryer. Which is analogous to going from a 57 Chevy to a Tesla. Let me emphasize that we are VERY glad we did. It may sound odd to say that doing the laundry has become a shared family adventure rather than a routine task. But that is what has happened. I’m the techie in our family and convinced my wife to select this leading-edge equipment by promising to help her get up to speed.
I had initially planned on delaying this review until we had used most of its features. But that is totally unnecessary. This washing machine is easier to use that our old one. Simply push 3 buttons and it does the rest. The many options it provides are easy to understand once my wife had pressed the 3 buttons a few times. To truly take advantage of all the options is another issue. The old washer had limited capabilities and we formed out habits within its limits. . So, my wife is now in the process of developing different laundry procedures to take advantage of more features that this machine offers.
We are remodeling the laundry room and my wife has been discussing our laundry procedures and the new washer and dryer with our 4 married daughters. Each one has made a special trip to our home just to see the equipment and test it out on some of their difficult laundry issues. There is more excitement in our family over this washer and dryer than anything in years. Which is a really good thing. If we had finished our remodeling and then gotten the washer and dryer the results would not have been nearly as good as they should turn out now.
The remodel now will be designed around this equipment and the procedures they foster. One small example: please notice in the photos the washer is on the left side along with an old utility sink. The dryer is on the right next to the window. We plan to reverse that and put a new sink next to the window and move the dryer where the washer is. There are several reasons for doing this one of which is to take full advantage of the double hung dyer door.
One last cherry to put on the cake: the delivery people were great. They hooked up the new washer and dryer, haul away the old ones and instructed us in how to use the new equipment and who to call if we had any issues. They did an exceptional job in a friendly and very professional way.
Does an excellent job of washing and saves energy too!
This is a review of the LG Top loading clothes washer, model WT1901C. The washer came with a matching LG dryer. They are a beautiful set. I have to admit that the feature set was very intimidating at first. There were so many selections compared to my old equipment. I was compelled to review the manual before using the machine because I didn't want to screw things up. The manual was very helpful. After reading the instructions I was ready to give my machine a go. It was not as difficult as I thought it would be. In fact after a few loads of clothes I find it to be intuitive. I have been delighted at how clean my clothes are. I didn't think this machine would be able to do a good job when I didn't see the large agitator that was in the top loading machines of the past. It does a better job than my old front loading washer. Some of the features that I really like are 1) the clear glass lid. Now I can see what is going on without the need to stop the machine. 2) I also like that the machine connects to my home network and my smartphone. Now I can check how much time is remaining from anywhere I can connect to the internet. Amazing. It also can send diagnostic information to LG service department. This will help in the event the machine has a problem. Some things I don't like, the tub is deep so reaching inside to get socks or small items off the bottom back of the machine is difficult for me. I also have hit some buttons when I reach in. Nothing happened other than I woke up the machine but it worried me that something might happen. Neither of these are issues that I consider major. Given the overall quality of the machine and that it does an excellent job of washing I feel this is a great washer and I am very pleased to have selected it over the other choices out there.
I always thought that LG stood for "Lousy Goods". As an audio video installer I hate their TVs. But this washer is AMAZING! It has so many features its hard to imagine that a washing machine can do so much. This thing is insanely quite. It will, for the most part, balance the load of laundry in it by itself. A few times it didn't do so well with a few beach towels in it and it thumped as it spun. The black stainless steel is absolutely gorgeous! My 'wife is 5'6 and she has to stand on her tippy toes to get laundry out of the bottom. We hated doing laundry with our old washer and dryer, now we are excited to do laundry...folding laundry still is no fun though.
ASTONISHING! This LG Washing Machine is soooooo Fantastic! The LG WT1901C out performs
anything I have ever seen or used! Since I made the video, I have done 9 more loads of
laundry (my old machine has been broken for a while) and I have
washed different types of things like sheets, blankets, towels, jeans & colors, dog & cat bedding, whites (bleach) and delicates and only once the machine went out of balance on the very
last spin. I opened the lid, adjusted the jeans and it finished the cycle no problem.
Every load came out so clean and fresh smelling. The towels came out soft and fluffy without any
fabric softener. I am so in love with this washer!
It is so quiet and yet it washes your clothes so well! It is strong but gentle on your clothes. There are so many cycles and options to choose from! You can also download LG's app, Smart ThinQ, and you can download new and different cycles, control your machine remotely, and LG can diagnose your machine over the phone. It also allows you to do a few more things.
If you are not sure what cycle to put a particular load on, the book has made a nice chart
to go by. You can use the pre-set ones and you can also make up your own.
YOU MUST READ THE BOOK! There is so much information you need to know about this washing
machine because it does so much.
It is truly an AMAZING machine!! I love washing clothes now! It's also beautifully designed and very stylish.
Just wipe with a soft cloth to keep it looking shiny new. The soap dispenser is
also made so you can clean it easily. You have a tub clean cycle too and your phone can also
keep track of how many loads you have done and remind you it's time to 'wash' your washing machine!
I love having the control panel right there on the front of the washer. It is so much better than on the back.
The tub is very large and accommodates a Queen sized comforter very well with room to spare.
In one of my photos I have posted below, I placed an oversized towel way way down there in the bottom
of the tub to try to give you a sense of how deep & huge it really is. It has handled every size load with excellence. I am so grateful for this LG Washing Machine.
I can't say enough great things about it - it is a STUNNING machine! LG must have put a lot of time and effort into this model. You will actually look forward to doing laundry! I LOVE IT and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
