Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you? Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar? That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.

More free time

More free time

Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The ultra large capacity (4.3 cu.ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.

Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t have to mean compromising. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.

All the right moves

All the right moves

Get your clothes clean and experience a smarter way to wash with our innovative 6Motion™ technology. Each wash cycle combines up to 6 different wash motions to provide a revolutionary cleaning experience.

Save money. Save energy.

Save money. Save energy.

When your washer uses about 30% less energy and half the amount of water used by regular washers, you’re going to make an impact—on your utility bills, your energy and water consumption, and most importantly, the environment.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I almost didn't buy it I lost my LG washer and dryer in a house fire. I was not wild about it. I always felt like it used so little water the clothes were not clean. So I almost didn't buy LG again. But I did a lot of research on this machine and read lots of reviews. I am very glad I bought it. It is wonderful. Clothes get clean. Uses just the right amount of water so energy efficient. I am so happy I bought this one. It's great. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Quiet, efficient and awesome Very quiet and saves water usage. Has many features for all laundry types to include your very delicates. Can accommodate those big bulky comforters easily. The maintenance to upkeep it is very minimal and real easy. Love this washer and all that it does. A must have item. July 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love turbo wash and steam option. Excellent product - Love the turbo wash and steam wash option .display is amazing and user friendly -initially was a little difficult to remember all the options .Large drum for bigger loads May 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the investment so far My wife and I are very pleased with our purchase. The unit is easy to use and maintain. We really like how quiet the washer is even when in a high speed spin. The different washing options are a great bonus, especially for someone who has year-round allergies. The washer is a great size for a small family and can even handle a queen-sized down comforter and duvet cover at one. Great buy! April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product Expensive but worth every dollar of smooth operations, quiet and high efficiency . Especially larger capacity like no other washer.. June 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly What We Wanted We did a lot of research before we bought this washing machine. It has a lot of features, but not so many that there are unnecessary ones. It has a big enough load capacity for our needs. June 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Loud and forceful I received my machine in February. Unlike several other reviewers I find my machine loud. When the water is filling the machine it is very forceful and makes several abrupt sounds as it is filling. During the wash cycles it is fairly quiet until the spin cycle during which time it again becomes very loud and shakes and squeaks. My machine is level, it's been checked several times. I'm disappointed with the machine. This washer replaces my previous front loader (10 yrs old) and it was never this loud. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for large loads. Great front loader. Large capacity.... As long as you clean the front part... No mildew or junk in there yet! May 26, 2014

Answer: 
The door hinge on this washer, can not, I repeat, can not be changed. Please call tech support if you require further information. The poster who indicated that the washer door can be swapped is flat-out wrong. The matching dryer has a door that can be swapped, but not the washer.

Answer: 
I bought my washer from Home Depot and the salesman said that the hoses come with the washer. There was no need to buy additional hoses, and these have worked just fine. No leaks, no problems at all.

Answer: 
The only time we have an odor issue is if we forget to leave the door open after the last load so the drum can dry out. Otherwise you get a musty smell. If you remember to let it dry there is no issue.
