5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam Technology
Laundry At the Speed of Life
LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.
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.
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.
