CNET First Look
A modern washer to brighten up your boring laundry roomLG's $1,150 WT1801HVA washing machine boasts next-gen style, but can it remove stains?
So, I was really excited when we got this LG washer in the office. First of all it has this really cool integrated front-mounted panel. Something we have never seen before with a top-load model. Usually, they have this Back mounted display that's the best stage of last gen models and it's kind of old school at this point, looks a little outdated. So that's something I love about this washer. It also has no knob as you can see so it's a very integrated panel and it's super easy to use. The problem is that it's not that great of a performer. So while you have this nice aesthetic it doesn't actually do a great job cleaning your clothes. So compared to most of the other top loaders it did just okay, but it didn't do nearly as well as the Kenmore model we just reviewed that did excellently. So if you're looking for a model that can just Be a really nice, good looking fixture in your laundry room. This is a decent option. But I would definitely look for something like the Kenmore model instead that can do a little bit better in performance. [NOISE]
