Tired of spending hours on end finishing your family’s laundry? Now, those days are gone. LG’s revolutionary TurboWash™ Technology allows you to save up to 20 mins on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance! It’s like pressing the fast forward button on your laundry.

DEEP CLEAN WITH STEAM

LG Steam Technology penetrates fabric to remove soil and enhance cleaning results, it also removes common household allergens.

Front Control Design

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ongoing Washer Lid Problem Today is the second time in less than 2 years the plastic cover for the lid broke off. This might be due to the power of the machine, but I find it extremely annoying to call customer service to speak to someone clearly offshore that does not understand the issue. LG there needs to be a better way to cover the hinged area with the screws exposed. The plastic cover is not cutting it. I will be re-selecting something else as I cannot trust this washer when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Start delay and programmable features win my heart I chose this model one month ago as the replacement of similar model with the smaller drum. This model WT1801HVA comes with the same futuristic face but has extra features like: programmable watching cycle. Function of delay the start of washing let me save even more on power bill. Washes fine even with cold water. Sometimes I just have to add extra water by clicking on appropriate button. One thing is missing: starting drying without my involvement. But that is the model 2in1 with triple price tag...will wait couple more year for now :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I just bought this washing machine 2 weeks ago and I love it! I went back to a top load washing machine after having a front load for 8 years, it was the best decision I have made. We are a family of five and I love that fact that it will fit at least 1 set of sheets, mattress protector and blanket in one load. It makes doing the bedding so much easier and faster. The one downfall to this machine is that it is so deep that I almost need a stool to reach the bottom of the bin to get all the clothes out.
