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 limited warranty.

Sleek and Easy!

Goodbye clunky dials and knobs. With the new Easy Front Panel, the controls are readily accessible in the front of the washer. As if that's not enough, the sleek modern design allows you to find the right settings in no time.

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.

Get wise

Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Wash in peace

You shouldn’t know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance™ anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.

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 1 out of 5 by from Frequently stops due to unbalanced load We have had this machine for nearly two years and it has been a disaster. Anytime we include towels or cotton bedding or anything that tends to be heavy when wet, the machine unevenly distributes them repeatedly. We have to remove each item and manually redistribute them. Not worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An LG Believer Something works with none of the problems with might come with new ideas and is the best washer I've owned in my 83 years! This jewel is now two and 1/2 years in my utility room working like a charm and so convenient. LG really means Life is Good! Long live LG!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment It senses the load so if I have to do a small load, it uses less water. It leaves the clothes very clean. Great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is the worst Washer I have ever owned This washer goes out of balance all of the time and takes up to 3 hours to complete a load. Had service done for problem did not fix. Wish I never bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay but not great Water level doesn't cover all the laundry in the load. Action does not move clothes around enough to get the articles on top into the soapy water below. Cycles are very long. Since most of our laundry is not overly dirty it does seem to get clean. Don't like front controls as difficult to keep dirt and water from falling on the controls. Front controls were advertised as advantage for short people, but actually makes it more of a stretch to retrieve articles from the bottom of the washer as have to lean over the control area. Bleach dispenser also in position where dirt and water can easily fall into it.

When you press Extra Rinse multiple times it changes the time. Why is this?

Asked by: TinaR0717
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Each rinse cycle takes time to complete. As such, adding extra rinse cycles will increase the amount of time it will take to complete the overall wash cycle.

I can't get the washer to use cold water. Why?

Asked by: Jeremiah31
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Set the water temperature to TAP COLD. This will run ONLY the cold water valve. If the water still comes out not cold, then the water lines may be installed incorrectly or backwards.

It does not add enough water to the cotton/normal cycle, clothes are 2" above the water line. How do you add water to a cycle?

Asked by: Moemo
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. According to the chart on page 22 of the Owner’s Manual, it does not appear that this model was designed with an option to add more water to a wash cycle beyond the Extra Rinse.

My new top load washer barely agitates, like it is in slow motion. My clothes are not getting clean. 

Asked by: Scotts123
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The majority of agitation occurs below the visual level. It is performed mostly by the impeller at the bottom of the tub, and the motion of the drum in directions most frequently other than spinning. If additional information is needed, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
