Forget Something" No Problem.

This LG Washer has a built-in pause button that lets you pause your wash after it starts and drop in a stray piece of clothing


A revolutionary spin on laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you've ever seen.


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.


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.


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.

Terrible Wash and Top has Cracked

3bernardo 2/17/2020

We have had numerous issues with water covering clothes. Clothes do not come out clean regardless of size of load. Our biggest issue is that the top of washer body has been cracking. We have great concern being that the washer is in second floor. Yes we have an appropriate supported floor and at year 3 the cracks appeared and was not supported under retailer warranty. We dont have unbalance issues so that couldnt be blamed on the body cracks on top.

no such thing as smart.

deathwish 3/23/2019

heres a typical wash day. Large load. Water does not cover clothes...Use bulky setting until enough water is in tub. Turn off Unplug Turn on select Cotton/normal press start. Come back 40 minutes later and the machine has re-filled the rinse cycle and is back up to 30 minutes I think...this was a week ago. Spins again gets down to 9 minutes stops and refills again spins again gets down to 9 seconds and refills and spins again. OK now we are into 2 hrs into this so I decide to use the spin only cycle...gets down to 7 seconds then starts to refill itself again. So I redistribute the clothes start the spin only cycle again and it does it again. I try one more time...it does it again. I give up and put the laundry in the dryer. This wasted 3 hrs of my Saturday and at least 4 tubs of water. AND GUESS WHAT?...IT STILL DOES A LOUSY JOB WASHING THE LAUNDRY I hate the people who came up with the idea of a Smart Machine

I have not had any issues until recently. We replaced a part that was supposed to fix it. I was not spinning and would stick on the OE. Now it wont cycle through the spin cycle now. Not sure how to fix it and I have kids that are athletes so I need my washer.

Hate this washing machine

susie22 7/2/2018

The washer does not spin the clothes dry with out going out of balance. Then it fills with water again agitates the clothes and tries to spin again. I have attempted 8-10 spins and just given up and threw the wet clothes in the dryer after ringing them out myself. I HATE this washing machine. If I could lift it by myself it would be in our dumpster.
