Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The 5.2 cu.ft. ultra large capacity washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time well saved.

NFC Tag On

Easily change and customize cycles with a simple tap of a smart phone app. Can't find the cycle you need? There's an app for that. Your laundry just got a little bit smarter.

Call, Connect, Resolve

SmartDiagnosis™ uses self-diagnosing technology that can communicate 24/7 with LG customer service over the telephone providing you with comfort and reliability.


Now using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t mean compromising on how clean your clothes are. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold-water savings with warm-water performance.

Keep it Quiet

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.


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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Just bought 1 week ago. Really happy with the results. I use the extra rinse feature based on others comments. Why 4 stars instead of 5: You advertise everywhere about the smart diagnostic (NFC feature) and the app is not available in Canada...What are you waiting for...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite It's almost a year that I use this machine and very happy with it. It only uses the water it needs and it is quite when in use. I like the features and it looks good too. It's spacious inside. I recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Machine Only 2 1/2 years old and has broken down twice! First time the bolt that holds the middle hub down sheared right off, that was after a year. And now the main computer has to be replaced. Both times without my washer for 3 weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm happily surprised! I'm amazed at how well this washer works -- it seems like it doesn't use enough water, but even the dirtiest work clothes come out clean. I like the hi speed spin - it takes less time to dry clothes. We're very happy with this machine so far - we've been using it for 6 weeks.
