Dumps undiluted liquid bleach directly on clothes!
3 weeks ago
Summary: Bought the WT1001CW mainly because I have a very tight space and this was the only washer on the market that would fit. Can’t complain about the cleaning effectiveness, it does seem to work for me. Surprisingly large capacity, much larger than the 25 year old Maytag that fit in the same space. Uses very little water. Doesn’t even cover the clothes when washing which is somewhat disturbing to see, but it does seem to work.
Summary: We have the equivalent model of the LG washing machine and have exhausted all our alternatives to get the soap and lint out of clothing done by this machine. For everyone like me who took a "top rating" seriously, do your homework and read the negative reviews. This machine for all its bells and whistles is TERRIBLE. Anyone who rates this machine positively has an issue with judging quality.
Summary: The problem with these HE washers is they don't put in enough water to do a wash. But you can trick them to use more water. Simply put in your clothes, then add in about 2 quarts of water on the clothes. This makes the clothes heavy and the machine tests and thinks it has a heavier load and then uses more water. It works every time. This particular machine doesn't have many options like the later models, but does do a good job when it uses enough water.
Summary: This machine overpraised and under delivers. I had high hopes for its' efficiency. My white towels have never been so dingy even after trying oxyclean and extra water levels. Simple spots remain on pants and tops. The high spin cycle may reduce drying but increase wrinkles and stretching. This is not a clothes washing machine. It is a water extraction unit. Do not purchase...move on.
Summary: The problem with these high efficiency washers is they don't use enough water. However, it's easy to trick them to use enough water to do the job. With enough water, they do a fantastic job to clean clothes. To do that, after putting the clothes in the washer, I add about 2 quarts of water to the clothes and run the normal cycle. This makes the clothes seem heavy and the machine thinks it has a bigger load than actually and it adds water accordingly.
Summary: I originally bought this machine because I live in an old rehabbed row home with narrow stairs to the basement and this model fit. However, I was surprised on how great it washes clothes. My previous machine was a front loading machine which I was not impressed with. This machine washes my clothes great even when I don't use the extra water option. It's a shame they are discontinuing it.
Summary: I have had this washer for about a month. I love the water savings and detergent savings. I question the electrical savings since it runs about 15 minutes longer than my previous machines. My clothes appear to be clean and certainly fairly dry. This saves energy on drier use. I have long arms and can just reach the bottom. I wish it had a flat top, though.
Summary: I was really excited about this washer, but I hate it after a couple months! It can fit a lot, but the top of the load doesn't even get wet if you do that. Also, the bleach flows right into the dry clothes and leaves bleach around the top, which will get on future loads unless you clean it off well each time.
