Keep it Quiet

There’s no need for laundry to be noisy. Thanks to LG's LoDecibel™ Operation, chances are you’ll never even notice it.

NeveRust™

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes laundry fun! I bought it in April 2016 and I am very happy I chose LG ☺

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE I have now had this washing machine for nearly 2 years and I would never suggest that anyone buy it. The main reasons: 1. Does not clean clothes. There is only my husband and I, so you can imagine that our clothes do not get that dirty so one would imagine that the clothes would come out clean - well they don"t. Even my white towels look dingy. I tried putting bleach in with them but that does not seem to help. 2. You cannot wash any clothes that are waterproof - so your choice is either hand wash or take to a laundry mat!!!! You can't even wash your mattress cover which I can hand wash in summer but what do you do when you have 3 feet of snow in your backyard and can't hang it out. I must admit that for the price and the technology of the machine I expected a much better product and could not even complain to the store since we bought it at Future Shop and it closed shortly after our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations 100% I have nothing but good things to say about these machines. We purchased the laundry pair a month ago and they are well worth the money. There are often complaints that the impeller machines leave residue. But we have not once had an issue with this machine. Plus it is exceptionally quiet, even while running bulky loans. It almost doesn't even sound like it's running at times. The dryer is pretty standard, but has a nice troubleshooting option which sends messages to your phone. The washing machine doesn't seem to support the same software unfortunately. Overall I would highly recommend these machines and would not hesitate to buy an LG laundry pair in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the one washer that really does everything if you have a really big load or just a few items this is the washer you need, after loading it goes thru a dry cycle to figure out how much water is needed, and how long it should run, only downside is this has one of the deepest tubs I have ever seen I'm 5'9'' and can just reach the bottom, my wife is 5'1'' and cannot but other then that this is a great washer

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Features not available to Canadian customers Bought this washer about two Months ago now use it very frequently and is a great washer to was what I "can" in it. When I purchased the washer I was told there are downloadable wash features available for certain items. When I get home set it up and try to go about using these features I come to realize they aren't available to Canadian customers. This feature is supposed to allow me to wash waterproof clothing in the machine because it states that you shouldn't wash those items otherwise. So I live in Canada wear winter clothes 6+ months a year and am advised to not was these articles in there. This also extends to waterproof mattress covers or anything else of such nature. I am very disappointed as I spent quite a bit of money on what is supposed to be a high end machine and the high end features are of no use. Thought so such a big company would have a better way of making this available to all its customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad We switched from front load We replaced our Kenmore front load with this great machine. Very efficient, easy on clothes, minimal water use and very little noise. Programs reduce time and water used, handles large items well and spins as well as our old machine. Very pleased after the first few months with this LG washer.
