Made for Each Other

The LG SideKick is compatible with all new LG Front Load Washers.


Laundry At the Speed of Life

LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.


More room to clean

When it comes to laundry capacity big is good, but bigger is better. Now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load! At 5.2 cu ft of mega capacity, you'll definitely have more room to clean.


Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.


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 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.


Measure First

You found the LG washer that fits your lifestyle- now make sure it fits in your space. These LG models are larger than typical washers, measure to ensure your purchase can be successfully delivered and installed.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

SMELLS HORRID RUINS CLOTHES

Srcooper 4/20/2022

Ive wanted to review this for years and since Ive sat to order a new washer Im doing it now. I was so excited about my set when I ordered them paid over 2k for washer and dryer. Our laundry was great for about a week or so Then the spolied stench began. Didnt matter how much I clean the rim or draining the front hose between loads our clothing always smelled spoiled. I have even had to remove the detergent drawer and clean mold from inside the area the entire roof of the detergent compartment completely black. For years Ive have dealt with this multiple rinse cycles and repeat washes tub cleans doesnt matter. I purchased this set on Nov 11 2015 I got a good week out of it. Now Im getting error codes as well FE. I am Just done fighting this machine. A 2k investment so I just stuck with it because I had no choice.

Large capacity

Merle3rd 11/4/2021

We have had this washer for 6 years now. The unit was problem-free until last week. A tech identified the problem as a bad drain pump. Not bad for its age. Will buy an LG again if we need to replace this one.

Defective Product

WM8000HVA 7/21/2021

Who would expect a fairly new expensive washer go seriously bad this quickly. Going off balance for no reason or I thought Inner tub bad already? Shock/struts bad already? Very disappointing and upsetting
