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 348 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best washer and dryer on market Quiet and does an impeccable job cleaning and then fast drying. The combo is unbelievably quiet. Options must be used to see difference. The size of the tub is worth it by saving time with one load instead of doing two loads. Just convinced neighbor to buy and he loves it. I never bought LG but I will from now on. Currently buying the dishwasher from LG. Very reliable! July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is AWESOME!!! GREAT Washer! Uses less water and less energy. I can wash my King Size comforter with no problems. No more tips to the laundrymat - Yay!!! LOTS of option/cyces to choose from, even steam cycles. My two-year old and I enjoy watchng the tub go round-and-round. Definitely worth the money! July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best washing machine we have ever purchased. Our washing machine died and left us with a trip either to a Laundromat, or to replace the machine. We choose the latter. Our size requirement and the need to replace the machine immediately narrowed the field greatly. We decided on the LGWM8000HVA 5.2 cu. ft. partly because we had purchased LG appliances before, but mostly because it met all our requirements and then some. We are very happy with all our LG appliances and would recommend them to anyone in need of new appliances. July 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a great pair of machines !!! Bought the big capacity washer and matching dryer. Couldn't wait to try them out. What an amazing pair. It's just a thrill to watch the washer weigh the clothes, then decide how much water to use, which is really a small amount... The dryer is also amazing. Best washer and dryer we ever had. Got the matching bases for each also. Nice looking, heavy duty machines. Not only saving on water but also on the laundry detergent. Also don't have to do laundry as much due to the big drums. I would suggest these to anyone. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best and Amazing Machine from LG This is a great product with n number of features, specially the Turbo wash, Stream technology, load balancer, front water sprinkler and so on .. The rinse cycle is absolutely clean and dry, the cloths are almost dry once wash is done. Energy efficient, with capacity to handle bulk loads in one go, I don't see a energy bills going up. I am very happy with my Washer. Thanks to LG for making such innovations. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good Purchased this washer about 6 months ago. We have a large family and so far it is working great. Owned several top loading washers in the passed and they haven't lasted more than a few years. This washer does clean the clothes better and it has great energy and water saving features. June 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poorly made Started having issues as soon as the warranty ended. This is too expensive of a product to have issues after a year and a half. The button to turn it on is off center, and will not push in easily. It takes about 5 minutes to push a button now, and support did not have a fix for this. I can still get it to work, by pushing it around for a while on the side that isn't fitting in easily. It is frustrating to put a bunch of clothes in the laundry, and not know whether I can get it to start or not. June 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does What It Says It Will Do! I own a vacation rental that I run myself (i.e...I wash all the linens 3 bathrooms (14 towels), 4 bedrooms with 7 beds (7 sheets SETS). This means that I have more than twice as much laundry to to do as a "normal" person/family. During the summer it is not unusual for me to do at least 6 ginormous loads of laundry per week. This machine has cut down my laundry time by at least half. What use to take me an entire day just washing the clothes (not even drying the clothes)...I'm now down to 3 large loads (washed and dried before noon). This machine IS the tool of my trade and is worth every expensive penny!! The little song at the end of the load is cute too...makes you look forward to the cycle ending. I cannot say one thing bad about this machine. Well done LG...well done. June 20, 2014

Answer: 
Standing facing the front of my washer when I open the door it swings to the left. The hinges that hold the washer door on the machine are on the left. However if you get the matching dryer that door opens to the right

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: 
Your interest in the LG - 5.2 Cu. Ft. 14-Cycle Mega Capacity High-Efficiency Steam Front-Loading Washer, model number WM8000HVA is greatly appreciated. Stacking the dryer on top of the washer is not an option. That might be advisable to place that much weight on top of the controls of the washer as the top is not designed to support that kind of weight...IFV

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.
