11kg Centum™ Front Load Washer with Inverter Direct Drive Motor

  • WD1611SMW2

Key Features

  • Centum™ 20 Year Parts Warranty on Inverter Motor
  • 6 Motion Wash Technology
  • Turbo Clean®
  • True Steam®
  • Smart THINQ™ (Wi-Fi)


For added piece of mind the LG Direct Drive Motor comes with our Centum 20 Year Parts Warranty. The Direct Drive Motor with Inverter Control delivers a reliable, quiet and durable mechanism with less moving parts that doesn’t rely on the traditional belt and pulley design.¹

Save Time with Turbo Clean®

Turbo Clean® uses a short burst of water spray from a nozzle located at the front of the drum. This helps deliver quicker wash times by reducing the number of rinse cycles.*

*Turbo Clean® available on selected wash programs. Time saving will vary depending on wash load and cycle selected.

Attack Stains with TrueSteam®

TrueSteam® has the ability to fluff up fabric fibres. This allows steam particles to clean on a microscopic level. Instead of saturating the stain with just one drop of water, 1,600 individual steam particles attack the stain. By combining water, steam & washing at higher temperature detergent is dissolved faster.

Outstanding Performance with 6 Motion Direct Drive

LG washers use a combination of 6 motions, based on hand-washing, to wash your clothes. Simply choose a cycle and your machine selects the best combination of washing motions to give you an outstanding wash, whilst also caring for your clothes.
