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 4.9 out of 5 by 88 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 Great Washer Our old front-load washer finally gave up the ghost, and the search was on...had a lot of feedback that the new LG washers were excellent machines and a good value. It was a bit more $ than we originally planned on, but well worth it. A great machine. Quiet. Works great. It doesn't "travel" like our old machine and when it says 10 minutes left, it really means 10 minutes left. May 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quiet Washer This washer has great features and is quiet. It is easy to use and has many cycles to fit all washing needs. It looks nice and runs great. I love the FreshCare in case I'm not going to be there when the cycle is done. Clothes come out clean and smelling fresh. I would definitely recommend this washer. April 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Review of LG washing machine I have had this washing machine for about a month and it has fast wash cycles. It makes loud water sucking noises when the wash cycle is started. The detergent and bleach dispensers are in the front top left next to the selecter knob, so if the bleach overflows this could rust up the electrical contacts of the switch next to it. June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 This product has great features Very quiet. Great features. Love the steam feature. April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent preformance very quiet, excellent wash, reduced energy. AAA+++ April 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful clothes washer Overall, it's a great washer, our first front-loader. A bit of sticker shock compared to top-loaders, but the unit is very quiet, saves water, and gets more water out of the washed clothes than any top-loader we've owned (saving money on dryer usage). Wish we could change the "done" chimes, as they sound rather flowery, but it's better than a loud buzzer. May 9, 2014

Seems like LG is pushing 5.1 capacity machine. Much cheaper than 4.3 machine. Should I get the 5.1 machine on sale or the 4.3 machine that I originally ordered?

Answer: 
I would have gotten the 5.1 if it would have fit. Now, however, I'm happy with the 4.3, because I don't think a full load in the 5.1 would fit in our dryer. If you have a large capacity dryer, or are planning on getting the matching dryer, I would definitely go with the 5.1.

Drain/Drip Pan

I am putting this washer in my second floor laundry closet and it absolutely must have a drip or drain pan underneath it. I am stacking a dryer on top so there is no pedestal raising it up. What is the correct size pan that I need to use for this configuration that will also allow for unobstructed access to the pump filter compartment located on the bottom front of the machine? Can you recommend a specific brand/model number and supplier? I had purchased a pan but it turned out to be too narrow and the front lip made it impossible to completely open up the pump filter access compartment.

Answer: 
LG does not produce, nor does it recommend the use of any form of drip pan for any of our products. Having such a device can reduce the stability of the installation point, and can result in excess vibration of the washer itself.
