Quality Washing with Smart Inverter Control

Inverter technology controls the speed & direction of the motor to provide a quality washing experience, with increased durability and stability with low vibration - that's why you get a 10 Year Parts Warranty on the Smart Inverter Motor.¹


The LG TurboDrum® mechanism is designed to rotate the drum in one direction while the pulsator directs water the opposite way. This improves the washing action, delivering a brilliant wash.

No Agitator

The beauty of this LG top loader is that it has no agitator. It’s inverter control motor moves the water in the tub to replicate hand washing actions.

Pre-Wash for Stubborn Stains

Select the ‘Pre Wash+Normal’ cycle and the machine provides extra soaking and agitating time in the wash to help remove stubborn stains.

Minimise Detergent Residue

The three water outlets assist with mixing and dispensing during the wash cycle for a quality wash.
