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.

Several Issues with Washer

mcfury13 1/25/2022

I was initially happy with this Washer after purchase. However within a couple of years I had to have multiple items replaced due to imbalance readings and water continuing to fill the machine over and over. Shock absorbers computer board hall sensor and now some type of hub issue. The machine now has multiple thunking grinding and squeaking noises from impeller area. Hard to pull trigger on spending more money on this machine again that will put me at a cost above the cost of a new machine on what I have spent in last year. Within first year I would have recommended but after first year I would not. Im not sure what to buy but hard to recommend after some of the frustrations. Also LG warranty states a Hall Sensor is covered but when I asked for payment they advised that I had to go with the place they would have sent outthat was not close to where I am and not able to support quickly.
