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 room to clean

When it comes to laundry capacity big is good, but bigger is better. Now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load! At 5.2 cu ft of mega capacity, you'll definitely have more room to clean.

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.

Measure First

You found the LG washer that fits your lifestyle- now make sure it fits in your space. These LG models are larger than typical washers, measure to ensure your purchase can be successfully delivered and installed.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 418 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome washer! Big, fast and with lots of features. I love the way I can put in a whole bed, comforter and all at one time August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So fast and quiet My new washer and dryer are wonderful. They are easy to use, faster than my old machines, very quiet, and I can wash a king size comforter. I am glad I decided on this pair. No regrets! July 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have set both great This is the best washer I've had!! Love all of the features. Plenty is choices in different wash setting. The signal chimes so nice.the lighting in drum is very helpful feature July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best washing machine ever! So far everything fits without overfilling. My big quilt looked very small in the machine. I was concerned that the wash time was to short and items would not get clean. Not so, depends on the cycle you choose. I used to let old machine go through wash cycle and stop it and reset to get dirty work clothes clean. Everything comes out great now. The best I have ever had. Love the lighted drum, I can see if I have left something behind. 5 Stars! July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine Great results. One improvement would be to light the menu customization titles. Hard to see in my laundry room. August 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Good quality product. This is a good quality large capacity washer with lots of features. It has many more features and settings that I normally use. Overall good performance but expensive for a clothes washer. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Larger than you expect! Wife wanted a Large Compactly this product delivers!!! No issues so far. We have had it for about 6 months. June 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good This washer works well, cloths come out clean. The water hammer issue is real, installed arrestors and it took care of the problem. Also make sure your machine is level, it spins at high speed. Just hope we get many years of use. June 4, 2015

Answer: 
Yes, absolutely necessary to use HE detergents to prevent damage to the machine. I find I use less detergent, too because the machine is so efficient in cleaning.

Answer: 
according to the manufacture you would void the warranty if you don't use their new hoses with their machine so i find it funny if they wouldn't supply you with the hoses. That said every washer I've bought had came with fill and drain hoses. The drain hose is part of the machine itself and the water fill hoses are always inside the tub if not in a bag attached to the machine. Bought the wm8500hva and was told it didn't have any hoses by the delivery boys but it was inside the tub as it always is. If you open the washer and there is no hoses and warranty package inside the tub or on the machine call the retailer or manufacturer immediately.

Answer: 
Drain hose yes, fill hoses no. You need to supply those. The drain hose is permanently connected to the washer.

Answer: 
You need to run a "clean" cycle. This setting is on the machine and I'm pretty sure you can use the recommended bleach amount with this special cycle.
Also, always leave the washer door cracked so that it can air out when you're not using it.

Answer: 
My previous front loader also had this problem. The rubber gasket did not have a proper drainage and the sitting water and hence the mildew odor. I left the door open, used something to turn off the interior light. I also used some commercial cleaners and occasionally used clorox in a rinse cycle.

Answer: 
First investigate where the odor actually is strongest, may not be the machine itself but rather from moisture trapped in adjacent wallboard. Look for potential water leaks around on walls near water supply and device connection. If in/on wall you will need to use a proper mildecide available at most Home Depot or Ace Hardware stores to kill the growth. In some situations you may need to remove and replace the old wallboard plus 12" in all directions (wallboard tends to wick water). Make sure you allow two to four days for the area under the wallboard to dry out before replacing with new as it will just grow back if left untreated and dried properly.

IF odor emanates from machine try running a couple of cycles with use of chlorine bleach. Bleach kills mildew and may just be all you need.
