Can I use the expression «I would want to» equally with «I would love/like to» do something?

I'm just curious. I think I head that expression once, but don't really notice it in people's speech; is that used at all? For example, what if I say «I would want to thank anyone who has been helping me with studying English»?
Thanks a lot for your attention! :)

    "I would want to..." sounds a little less natural than "I would like to...", but it still makes sense.

    I learnt that "want" is a rather strong, like a strong desire. So it doesn't sound polite at all used withe "would"
