Laundry At the Speed of Life

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer and matching dryer excellent. works great, cleans well love the extra rinse cycle. the steam functions i rarely ever use
Date published: 2016-02-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Water and suds pour out of the back We have a washer that is only 23 months old. Recently, suds and water have started pouring out of the port in the back and spilling all over the floor and soaking our baseboard. As others have noted, we are also are very careful and have used only the minimal amount of detergent (HE powder). Nothing has changed in our usage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaking after 15 months of light use Way too new -- and expensive -- to start leaking out of the back after only 15 months of light use (two people).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this washer! I love my washer! I have limited space but I was able to get this washer and the matching dryer with a stacking kit to fit my space with room to spare. It is so quiet we got up several times in the beginning to see if it was still running. And with having a king sized bed I needed the capacity to wash my bed coverings. Thanks LG!

Can you stack the WM4070_A washer with a DLHX4072 dryer?

Asked by: kkramirez
Although both the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with EcoHybrid™ Technology, Model # DLHX4072W and the LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HWA are stackable, the WM4070HWA has a depth of 28 2/5" and the DLHX4072W has a depth of 39" so it will not stack onto the WM4070HWA...^IFV

What is"NFC Tag on Technology"

What is EcoHybrid --Both items are in your Laundry front load fact sheets.
Asked by: tulip123
Thank you for your inquiry and for your interest in the NFC Tag On Technology. NFC (Near Field Communication) is a wireless connectivity technology that enables two-way communication between electronic devices. It operates over a distance of a few centimeters. You can share your content with an NFC tag or another NFC support device by simply touching it with your device. If you touch an NFC tag with your device, it will display the tag content on your device. LG’s Eco-Hybrid washer-dryers provide users with both Air-drying and normal drying modes, whereas most washing machines only offer one or the other. Each of these convenient and efficient options delivers A-grade energy savings. Compared with LG conventional drying modes, LG’s powerful Air-drying setting can save users nearly 7,000 liters of water per year. LG’s Eco-Hybrid dryer features an Eco mode and a Speed mode, letting the owner choose between optimal energy and time savings. Using sophisticated heat pump technology, Eco mode achieves A++ energy efficiency. Speed mode also provides great energy efficiency, with an A grade while taking 30 percent less time [4] to complete a cycle. An ideal solution for delicate items, LG’s Eco-Hybrid dryers can dry clothes even at low temperatures, reducing fabric damage and shrinkage. These advanced dryers are also equipped with LG’s unique Auto Cleaning System, which cleans the dryer’s condenser up to seven times per cycle. Built to stand up to repeated usage, this durable system optimizes energy efficiency as well as drying performance. Moreover, any build-up of lint in the condenser over time is also minimized...^IFV

model WM4270hva or model WM4070hva ??

Please explain the difference between these 2 models
Asked by: Henty
Hi Henty, thank you for your interest in the LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HVA and the LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash® Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM4270HVA. These units are essentially the same unit, one was released a year after the other and other than the price points, you'll notice from the Headline Description for each unit that the cubic foot capacities are a little different. The only other minor difference is that the WM4070HVA has one more option and that it's motor or agitator has a slightly higher maximum RPM at 1300 RPM versus 1200 RPM. Other than that they are the same so you could consider one a direct successor to the other...^IFV

Are there any accessories to raise the washer besides the drawer (like extended legs)?

We have a sloped ceiling above our washer, so I don't want to purchase the drawer to raise the washer, because then I couldn't put anything above it. However, without the drawer it is very low and difficult to load, so I would like to know if there are extendable legs to purchase. Otherwise I will need to build a small platform.
Asked by: SudburyGal
Hello SudburyGal. The only accessory that we have that will help to raise the LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HWA higher is the pedestal which would add another 13 3/5”. A Platform may be the best way for you to go about it...^IFV
