For Small Loads

Easily Maintain &
Keep Fresh

TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets and intense heat (up to 149 degrees) to sterilize the tub and help keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.

Troubleshoot Easy as 1-2-3

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer,  you don’t
have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service
center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple
app on your smartphone, helping you minimize costly,
inconvenient service calls.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just love it! I bought this 2 months ago and love it! I can't get over how clean my clothes are vs my old washer! I love all the different setting options and how easy it was to use! Makes washing fun for me. I'm constantly looking for things to wash just so I can check out the different settings, lol. Makes me wish I'd have gotten one a long time ago and what I was waiting for! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and it works great. Purchased 3 weeks ago and it is the best machine we have ever used (first front loader).
Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features and it works very well. The installation went fine. The washing machine works wonderfully, is efficient, and rinses the clothes so well that the drying time is 10 to 20 minutes less then with the old machine. I recommend it highly

When you stack the DLE3170 over the WN3270 with the stack kit what is the exact over all height? Also what distance from the left side wall does the unit need to be so that the door can open to a full 90 degree to access cloths?

Asked by: marc robertson
The 27" LG Stacking Kit, Model # KSTK1 doesn't add anything to the height of a stacked ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3270C* and ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W. Both have a height of 38 11/16" so their total combined height will be twice that (i.e 77 3/8").The recommended installation clearance spacing for the dryer is 1 inch and 2 inches for the washer. Since the units will be stacked, the 2-inch requirement for the washer dictates the spacing. If you look at the images for either the washer or the dryer, you will notice that the door hinges for either unit are well within the width of their cabinets so your wall will not be an obstacle when opening the door 90°. It will only hinder you if you need to open the door wider than 90°...^IFV

Asked by: SFS345

Are any of your washers ifttt

Asked by: Kelkel66
IFTTT (If This Then That) is a popular automation service made by IF. It is an online tool that basically automates online/digital life by helping two different online services -- a social network, online tool, or email provider -- to talk to each other. We do not have any washers that are IFTTT. We have washers that are either have built-in Wi-Fi or that use the NFC Tag on Function...^IFV

Just bought and installed this model. Turned on for test load which is explained in instructions and nothing is happening. Every button I press just beeps 2x and the play/pause is just blinking. Tried multiple times and nothing makes wash start

Asked by: Confused and dirty
We apologize about the issue you are experiencing with the washer. If the buttons are not responding, the unit may not require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at
