Yes, the delivery of a new washing machine would come with the haul away of your old machine, as well as the installation of the new one.

All of our washers are for washing laundry only, you should not wash anything else in them. Please do not put anything but laundry inside the laundry unit, it may cause damage - especially not your small children, they could get hurt.

I meant the washer doesn't have the standard center-post agitator like traditional top load washers. :)

It has the standard 3-prong plug, so 110 v, not 220 v.

Hello Heru, thanks for your inquiry and interest in the WT1101CW Ultra-Large Capacity High-efficiency Top-Loading washer. This unit is not dual voltage and can only be plugged into a 120V/60Hz grounded outlet. Should you encounter a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. Failure to do so could cause serious injury, fire, electric shock, or death. IFV

Question

How much water is used during a typical load?

Wondering how the WT 1101 CW compares with LG's WT 4870 CW.

answer 1
It starts out taking on a smaller amount of water to wash, but if it unbalances in any way, it uses a magnificent amount of water to rebalance. My water bill has doubled, compared to the front loader that I had. It washes great, but the point of having an HE top loader is to save money on water. This isn't doing that for me. Will be going back to a front loader when this is paid off.

answer 2
That depends on the size of the load, but they both have very good WF (Water Factors).
These two LG models are very similar:

WT1101C* // 2.56 MEF // 3.82 WF // CEE Tier 3
WT4870C* // 2.58 MEF // 3.76 WF // CEE Tier 3

• MEF=Modified Energy Factor, a combination of Energy Factor and Remaining Moisture Content. MEF measures energy consumption of the total laundry cycle (washing and drying). It indicates how many cubic feet of laundry can be washed and dried with one kWh of electricity; the higher the number, the greater the efficiency.
• WF=Water Factor (number of gallons needed for each cubic foot of laundry). A lower number indicates lower consumption and more efficient use of water.
• Although all models on the CEE list are very efficient, the tiers are structured so the most efficient products are listed in the higher tiers. For example, Tier 3 would contain the most efficient models.*

answer 2
Yes, regular cleaning of the tub on a monthly basis using TUB CLEAN will keep the tub clean and fresh.
- When you use liquid chlorine bleach, load it into the liquid chlorine bleach compartment.
- When you use a powdered cleaner, pull out the liquid detergent cup and add it into the main wash detergent compartment.
- When you use cleaning tablets, place them directly into the washer tub. (Do not add tablet cleaner to the drawer.)

As it turns out, black is not available, the closest may be LG's Graphite Steel color:

Simple wash? Just put your clothes and detergent in and hit play. Literally the start button is the triangle "play" symbol found on any CD,DVD VCR etc. the machine will sense the weight and size of your load and figure out what cycle it needs to wash the best. It is so easy and I've NEVER folded clothes and thought "oh this is still dirty I better wash again"

This washer is low profile and a drawer would be a nice addition although the drum is very deep and may cause some people with shorter arms and legs may want something to give them a slight lift.

answer 2
You do not NEED a tray for any washer (unless its mandated in your apartment building or something) a tray is just insurance incase the machine leaks. So you just need to weigh out whether the cost of a tray is more than the threat of a leak. If your looking at a brand new machine the likelihood of a leak is very low unless you get a defective machine from the factory. (I havent heard sny reviews about this unit having defectice parts)Also if your machine is on a second floor and and a leak would damage rooms below that's a factor to consider. (My machine is in the basement and a leak would wreck anything)
Hope this helps.
