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.

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.

Amazing Customer Service

Sarah LT 5/12/2022

I purchased my washer and dryer about six years ago. The motor died and I was desperate to get it fixed. I have a large family and was planning a major party with overnight house guests several days after the machine went down. LG quickly gave me an appointment ordered the parts and sent out a certified technician to repair it within days. It was also covered by the warranty It was hands-down the easiest most streamlined service repair I have ever had. I will be an LG customer for life

Balancing loads is an issue

HE13 3/29/2022

Struggled for years with this washer balancing loads running and re-running rinse and spin cycles. Hundreds in repairs only helped short term. Doesnt seem like the best design.

Had To Replace With A New Brand After 5 years

PC727 1/8/2022

Bought the matching LG washer dryer set Dec 2016. The washing machine spin cycle recently stopped working. LG certified tech came to the house to diagnose the situation. He did some research and he made a call to LG it was believed to be a sensor issue. However it was mentioned that actual electronic board could be an issue as well. Just to get the part and replace the sensor the cost was almost half of what you would pay for a new washing machine. Because of the uncertainty between the sensor and computer board we made the decision to purchase a new washing machine. There was a fair deal on another brand washing machine so we made the purchase and had it delivered and installed. Because of the coast of the part and repair it seemed to make sense but unfortunately we no longer have a matching washer dryer set or even the same brand.

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.
