More free time Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans" Go for it. The large capacity (3.7 cu.ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That s time saved and sore backs avoided.

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.

Wash in peace You shouldn t know your washer is on from the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to reduce washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even if it's on another floor.

Smarter in many ways Saving water doesn't mean compromising cleaning power. At least not when you have the SmartRinse Jet Spray System. The tub quickly spins as a powerful water jet sprays into it, forcing the water to penetrate through the clothes for effective rinsing.

Get wise It's unlikely you'll experience any problems with your LG washer, but if you ever do, 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.

Easy as 1,2,3 No need to watch the clock while you wash. EasyDispense takes the guesswork out of doing laundry by allowing you to pour in your detergent, bleach and fabric softener all at once, while releasing them at just the right time.

So Fresh and So Clean The TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets to clean the wash tub, and high spin speeds to remove excess moisture, helping to keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.

No Snags Instead of a bulky, inefficient agitator, this washer has a low-profile, highly-efficient impeller. And both the NeveRust impeller and wash tub are made of durable stainless steel, avoiding nicks that can snag fabrics.

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.

My New LG

DeeAce 5/10/2022

When my old LG machine finally broke down after 11 years I knew I had to buy a new model. My experience was so good and the 11 years went without a glitch. Today Im the proud owner of my new LG washer machine its a lot larger so super excited about that. Hope to have it for many years to come

Below average

This machine seems to put holes in your clothes unless you turn down the spin speed. Washes about average. Frequently have to rewash and pretreat stains.

Reliable

IjoIN 10/22/2021

I bought this washer in 2011 and it has been perfectly reliable. I have cleaned the inlet filters once in 2019 and she had her first encounter with a repair person 2 weeks ago. She had developed a squeak when agitating. He adjusted something and shes back to her quiet self. I am not a huge fan of limited water but that is easily overridden by choosing another option. The only thing I do not like is there is not an easy or reliable way to spin only. Rinse and Spin is the only option on this model. Generally i am happy with this reliable machine.

Great for tight spaces

ronie834643 9/23/2021

Works great if you have limited amount of space. You can wash up to 20 Lb of dry clothes in one load. Good for 1 or 2 persons. You wil save on electricity and water bills.
