The hottest thing in cold clean Now using the cold cycle on your washer doesn t mean compromising how clean your clothes are. ColdWash Option uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you the cleaning performance of warm water with the energy savings of cold water.

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 outstanding washing and rinsing performance, while staying gentle on clothes.

Smarter in many ways Saving water doesn't mean compromising cleaning power. At least not when you have the SmartRinse Jet Spray System . It provides better rinsing performance while making more efficient use of water at the same time.

No rude awakenings No need to announce to the whole house when one load has come out and another has gone in. The SlamProof Lid is safe, convenient and noise-reducing.

Super clean Some stains are so nasty it s hard to imagine how they ll ever come out. Our NSF-certified Sanitary Cycle heats water up to 158F to remove the toughest stains and bacteria.

Count on it When you buy a washer, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty .

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.

More Free Time Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans" Go for it. The Ultra Large 4.5 cu. Ft. washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That s time saved and sore backs avoided.

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.

Went the distance

Tacola 2/27/2022

My Mom I were really impressed with the LG Washer. It lasted for over 11 years. The pump was some of the problem at the end.so we decided on getting a New LG model # WT7300CV. I pray it will serve us as good as this last one
