controls are intuitive enough that the manual is unnecessary

2 agree

so quiet generally you can't hear it running from the next room

2 agree

subtle design elements make it nicer to work with, such as tactile selector dial and music chime at the end of cycle

2 agree

digital display and lights clear enough to see cycle status from across the room

2 agree

built-in check to make sure unit is level at the tub and opening makes initial adjustments much easier

Not very gentle on clothes

2 agree

top-loading design forces you to walk over to the machine and look down to check on contents

1 agrees

glass window that allows view of interior may be a weak point - prone to scratches

The LG WT5001CW is a top-loading washer with a large 5.2 cubic foot capacity. The lid is built to close softly without slamming, and the entire machine is designed to run quietly. The jets conserve water by spraying in a powerfully concentrated beam, and WaveForce technology combines the strong spray with fast spinning to rinse clothing more efficiently while still being gentle with the fabric. An EasyDispense system will automatically add fabric softener at the correct time. The motor uses a direct drive system which is covered by a 10 year warranty.

I would really like to know the difference between this unit and the GE PTWN8050MWW. I sell both and if you look inside, they basically are the same. The control panel is different. I knew GE was getting out of the home appliance industry, but I didn't know they would be using an LG for it's beloved HARMONY line of washers (the washer and dryer actually used to communicate between themselves!). The communication feature is no longer available :(
