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.

Overall good washer with lots of features

nuzy 6/3/2021

Weve owned this for 8 years now. Within the first couple years we had one of the fill valves in the back leak. It was fixed but we had to pay for it so that wasnt great for such a new washer. Outside of that it has been solid with the exception of some periodic odor from the tub. You need to run clean cycles on this washer on a regular basis to avoid that. Not the washers fault but be sure you do this. The only other issue we have is ergonomic rather than the washer not performing. It has a deep tub so if you are short or your spouse is short you need a stool to reach the bottom of the tub. All that said after the fill valve issue it has been a solid washer with no major concerns. It cleans well and washes a lot of clothes sheets or whatever you throw at it and does a good job.

Takes FOREVER to run a load of wash

Julie R 5/23/2021

Unfortunately this machine takes nearly 3 hours to run a simple load of wash. It is always off balance then after you balance it restarts the process all over. The quick wash feature should take 35 minutes to wash but it takes 3 hours. Will never buy another smart machine again.

Terrible balancing technology

rge44 3/4/2021

Owned this for 2 years and my very old agitator washer did a better job cleaning and was faster. The balancing technology is horrendous. It is rare for the machine to make it all the way through a cycle without halting and having to manually rebalance and restart despite 2 years of trying different ways to ensure it stays balanced. Takes 2-3 hours for simple wash. The large tub size without agitator would be awesome if it actually worked. The cleaning is hit and miss.

poor design.

randy2021 2/1/2021

Washer came with our house. We been using it around 1 year and 6 months. The washer is approximately 5 years old. I am so disappointed in this machine. This is the worst washing machine I ever used or owned. The problem is that the machine very rarely knows how add the proper amount of water. Since there is no manual water setting we must rely on the automatic water leveling. More often than not the water is way too shallow and clothes come out dry with soap blatches. Other times it will totally fill the tub with a few items.
