More free time

Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans" Go for it. The Ultra Large Capacity (4.7 cu.ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That's time saved and sore backs avoided.


The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn't have to mean compromising. ColdWash technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.


Catch the wave

If you thought water had done all it could to clean your clothes, you haven't experienced WaveForce technology. Rapid drum movement and powerful water jets provide a revolutionary washing and rinsing experience.


Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.


Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.


Wash in peace

You shouldn't know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.


Save money. Save energy.

When your washer uses about 30% less energy and half the amount of water used by regular washers, you're going to make an impact-on your utility bills, your energy and water consumption, and most importantly, the environment.

Features:

  • 4.7 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Submitted by Nmegalou - 8/20/2018

I bought the WT5070CW in 2012. After 6 years a defect in the tub seal caused water to leak on the transmission rusting it out. I thought it would last longer than 6 years. I will not buy another LG appliance. I also had a bad experience with a refrigerator.

One Flaw

Submitted by Dobsky60 - 8/6/2018

Bought WT5070CW Washer and matching DLGX5171 Dryer in 2014. Satisfied with performance. But one flaw that will require attention for the life of Washer. Bleach dispenser rim rust. First noticed after about 3 years. Small pieces of rust clog bleach dispenser. Rust enters white clothes we just do not use bleach any more.

Unbalanced Garbage

Submitted by TiredOfUnbalancedTone - 5/28/2018

Will NOT finish most loads. No matter how balanced a load is at start it becomes unbalanced and stops with a tone that weve grown to have a special hatred for in this house. On top of this the washer wastes so much time twitching and simply waiting not doing anything. Could cut way down on wash time if this unnecessary sensing was removed.

Terrible

Submitted by Diane79 - 5/6/2018

This is by far the worst washer I have ever owned. It takes hours to do a single load of laundry because it is constantly off balance. It also wastes a ton of water because it will repeatedly refill trying to balance itself but never does. As a family of 5 I dont have time to spend hours trying to get one load of laundry done. We will not be purchasing another lg product after this. Very disappointed.

Just ok

Submitted by RubyJ - 4/13/2018

I like the fact that it uses the minimum amount of water but if I have to add an item after the water is done running in it adds more water filling the machine to the very top even if the load of clothes is small. It also makes my clothes all tangled up. Another thing I like is the fact that I only have to use the minimum amount of detergent.

Frustrated

Submitted by Crazy golfer - 3/28/2018

I bought this machine a few years ago and it is a complete waste of money time and water. Loads can take hours to complete due to constant UE and refills to balance drive up water bills and waste. I have never been so disappointed in a purchase as much as this one. If it died tomorrow it would make me happy.

Submitted by 11BGUY - 3/1/2018

Mold

Submitted by Jessicataylor83 - 2/7/2018

I bought this washer in 2011. I am so glad it is discontinued I rub the tub clean cycle once a month to keep everything smelling fresh. Noticed over time my clothes were having a slight mildew smell anyway so tonight I went searching for the problem and found mold behind the little drawer you put detergent and fabric softener in. I have totally killed my hands trying to use bleach water to clean this out but it is looking like I just need to buy a new washer that I cant afford to buy right now.

Disappointing

Submitted by amc10 - 1/6/2018

Glad to see this appliance has been discontinued. It takes FOREVER to do a single load of laundry even on the so-called speed cycle. It takes a ton of water and if you are on well water DO NOT GET THIS MACHINE. It has emptied our well tank on a regular basis because it uses so much water and we cannot do anything that requires water in the house when I do laundry -- no showers no dishwasher. I really wanted to like this machine but am constantly frustrated. I will never buy another LG washer because of this experience.

Water wasting machine

Submitted by Worst purchase - 12/24/2017

This washing machine is NOT energy efficient at all. Wastes large amounts of water when it is out of balance. It will refill the entire tub and attempt to spin twice before it alarms to let you know its out of balance. The wash cycles are not at all effective. When washing a load it does not add enough water to allow the clothes to agitate. Therefore our three sons clothes rarely come out clean. My water bill has increased an average of $12/ month since owning this machine.

Fantastic Picture

Submitted by Bill E - 12/5/2017

The OLED picture quality lives up to the rave reviews. The contrast and the colors are obviously great but the biggest surprise has been how well the TV up-converts HD material to UHD. While I plan to upgrade to Netflix UHD service I sometimes wonder if it is really necessary. Complaints: one can always use more inputs/output and for me an analog audio output would be a plus the lack of a paper manual or pdf and using the remote to control TV settings had a small learning curve.

Replacing

Submitted by still dirty - 11/22/2017

Its a fancy pants machine dont get me wrong. You can load a TON of clothes in there and change all sorts of settings make custom settings change the little tune and its volume. But it doesnt do what I need it to do... CLEAN. If you put 1ft of clothes in there its going to add 4 inches of water. there is no aggitator it just puffs little jets of water around... the equivilent of my using my pinky to stir all those clothes in minimal water. The DUST from my husband laying in the rocks did not come off his shirt... thats how little aggitation the clothes get and how minimal the water usage is. I get its HE.... im all for going green... but i still need my machine to do the simple basic concept of what it was built for cleaning clothes. Going back to a front load... at least the tumbling action cleans. That being said ive had it for 4 years and never had any mechanical issues or any other complaints... other than it just takes forever to wash your clothes and in the end they arent clean I would expect the same results from any top load large capacity HE minimal water non aggitator machine. just not a good concept

Unbalanced Loads

Submitted by Beags - 9/30/2017

I bought this machine 2 years ago and spent countless hours yelling at it. About 80 of the time it shows UE for an unbalanced load. I had it repaired within the first 4 months and it subsided for a couple months and then came back like a bad habit. Save yourself the headache and dont purchase this machine.
