More free time

Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans" Go for it. The Ultra Large Capacity (4.7 cu.ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That's time saved and sore backs avoided.


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.


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.


Wash in peace

You shouldn't know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.


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.

getting it back and running

deno413 5/15/2022

we have owned the washer dryer set for 9 years..7 of nine all worked fine. Now a 375 dollar spend has hopefully corrected the bouncing and walking due to two of the four shocks..the tech from Family Appliance was very helpfull and knowledgeable...says we ideally should be good for maybe another 4 to 7 years use. We use it for a 4 loads a week is all.

Too many electronic features that do not work prop

Karin100 1/30/2022

This is the 2nd Dryer in a 2 month time frame. Similar issue with the first dryer. It worked for a week then the heat setting no longer worked and/or intermittently works. Only cool air no heat. Hookup correct and duct from dryer to outside clear of any obstruction. I would not recommend this dryer as there are just too many electronic options increasing risk of things going wrong. Since this is the second new dryer with sillier issue in 2 mo time frame I cannot recommend this dryer

Look elegant but not clean clothes that good

Jj Smith 1/22/2022

I have this washer over6 years still look immaculate as was bought. But Im not happy about its performance. It is very sensitive on the load balance the soap sometimes still remain in the tub causing gummy and stain deposits. The tub requires running clean cycles every month otherwise leaving stains in clothes after wash. Called tech support to resolve unbalance error and he asked to call local store to have it fixed a waste of time. Never want to buy this LG washer again.

Worst Washer Ive Ever Owned

Raine05 1/2/2022

I wish that I knew about this site years ago....I purchased this washing machine in 2013 and it is the worst washing machine I have ever owned or used. I have holes in every towel that I own from the bleach dispenser on the towel cycle. So I have to wash a couple towels at a time on the speed cycle with bleach. This washing machine does not clean the clothes properly unless you do small loads on a heavy cycle in general. The bleach dispenser is rusted out as well. Now it is continuously sensing a load and filling up but not able to spin or drain. Im not sure if there are updates needed and/or if so I as a consumer would like to be notified or have easy access to them. Overall this washing machine is junk and causes more aggravation than it should. Do yourself a favor and dont purchase it. I will never purchase an LG appliance etc. again.

Top Loader for Life

ReeMitt 11/21/2021

The great debate remains top or side load for the win? I love the ease of a top loader despite not having a cute counter on top. This LG is simple and the smart diagnostics is fantastic.The only downside side is its sensitivity to the weight of the load is almost too sensitive and sometimes during the spin cycle it will stop and make me rearrange some things. I need to do a deep dive on why it is doing this. It is probably a fault in my understanding of it. But fair to share this small and occasional issue that is mostly rare. Otherwise it has been a great machine for us for several years with many great customizable features.

Nothing but troubles with this washer

efbrazil 9/12/2021

The washer slips when reversing direction because of a bad clutch bearing. I took it apart and applied grease and swapped the plastic bits but its still failing. An additional problem is the unbalanced load issue which seems to kick in whenever you do towels or jeans. It really should result in a product recall as everyone with this washer has that problem. Finally the washer has problems with mold smell with the manual actually saying to do an empty bleach load every couple weeks. Who wants that?

Awful machine

Jane35 8/4/2021

This hunk of junk was discontinued bc it didnt empty completely per my serviceman. The collected water stagnated kept dirty water under the barrel. That junk eventually began showing up in my washer on our clothes. No amount of hot water washer cleaner would dissolve the gunk. LG wouldnt even talk to me about.

Rusted leaking counter board went out

Jujuru 8/1/2021

We have had our washer just short of 9 years. In your seven we had to replace the computer board as the washer just kept resetting itself. I thought this was the end of the problem until I noticed that he kept leaking. Now over the last 2 months the weekend has been persistent. This unit lasted just shy of 9 years. Very disappointed

Very efficient quiet and very dependable.

Frannienanny 7/19/2021

I was so impressed with the technology used to diagnose an issue with my washing machine. This is the first time since 2013 I have had to use this feature. My washer was operating perfectly the issue was I had put too many towels in one load so the washer was off balance. I will be more careful in the future to check the load I am washing.

Uneven loads disappoint

Becky12 6/27/2021

Bought this after much research. Wanted it to work. Quite often had uneven Ue loads that took twice as long to complete wash. Followed directions to avoid the Ue loads. A high nimber of the loads of wash would need adjusting one or more times. Had to adjust 5 or more times.

Sleek easy to use

ORBunnyCA 6/24/2021

I bought this machine for looks and functions. I am very pleased with how clean it gets the wash using minimal water and is extremely quiet. I do recommend the reading of the users guide I missed a couple of awesome features having not done so. Only complaint is you have to wash like type weighted items to not off balance the machine in spin mode.

Over 7 years old now mostly great

JAF777 6/7/2021

Ive had this washer for over 7 years now and it has always run great. It just now encountered its first problem: the bleach cup doesnt empty. Ive determined its not stopped up it must be a water valve problem. Other than this recent issue Ive had no problem with the machine and it cleans clothes very well. Trying to decide now whether to fix my current machine or replace it.

Be prepared to nap while this thing washes.

Alpha 147 6/6/2021

This thing takes FOREVER to fill with water. The stream that comes out is ridiculous. The average load takes well over an hour to wash and it doesnt agitate your clothes well at all. Only good thing I can say about 8t is 8ve had it for about 5 years with no break downs. Would never buy another though.
