AddPause Laundry

Forget Something? No Problem.

This LG Washer has a built-in pause button that lets you pause your wash after it starts and drop in a stray piece of clothing

A revolutionary spin on laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

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.

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 2 out of 5 by from It worked great for about a year and a half We bought ours brand new about two years ago. It worked great! Now, two years later it is a piece of junk. It washes clothes but only of I put in a few items. And even when we barely put anything in it, it still acts up. Rewashing clothes, over and over. We constantly have to stop it to move the clothes around becuase it will just stop.I have to pause every cycle and put in on rinse and spin cycle or It will just keep washing our items over and over. With two small kids who has time to constantly check It. It makes a ton of noise now. It is very frustrating. We will be purchasing a new one very soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this washer This is the most frustrating washer I’ve ever owned. First it never puts in enough water and it’s supposed to have a function that if you hold down the extra rinse button for 3 seconds it will add more water. It doesn’t tell you when to push the button. I’ve tried ever scenario and the only thing that works is to wait until it starts washing to open the lid and push that button and at the same time it will add that second rinse also. So this fills up the washer to the top for all three times (wash, rinse, rinse). This makes doing a load of laundry well over an hour as well as wasting all that water. It also gets out of balance easily (especially when doing smaller loads) and it’s fix is to keep adding water and jiggling to reposition the clothes which rarely works. I have to keep trying to manually reposition the clothes. I have to babysit the machine every time I do laundry. It can easily take two hours to do a load.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from User friendly I enjoy the simplicity to use .spacious and the sensing feature where I don't have to worry about how much clothing I put in.
Date published: 2017-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Washes great, durable for heavy, bulky items, doesn’t vibrate, quiet sounding. The only issue is the depth - removing clothes - at times, I need to step on a stepping stool. But, I can ignore that being that the machine is awesome!

Where is the serial number for this machine 

Asked by: Chellegil
If the information label, with the serial number, is not found in the door frame, then it will be on a label on the back of the washer cabinet.

I purchased this washer and matching dryer set last September brand new. Upon purchase I started to get an almost sewage type smell when using it. I have to run tub clean after every single use. Any ideas how to fix this?

Asked by: Doc7507
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Check the seals around the door, as well as all accessible points within the machine. If the Tub Clean isn't resolving the matter, then a technician may need to check deeper into the machine. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

We just bought a new home and this is the washer that they left for us. They didn't leave an owner's manual. Do I need to use a special detergent and is it possible to be sent a new owner's manual?

Asked by: Ems123k
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. This device was designed for use with detergents that have been formulated for HIGH EFFICIENCY machines, and that have the HE logo printed on the label. A copy of the owner’s manual can be downloaded from our website at

What is this part of the lid on my washer? If you click in both sides of the front.  The lip folds down. Can't seem to find the purpose for it as I bought it used and have no manual. 

Asked by: Breeeeedle
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. This hinged door handle is designed for the convenience of being able to still grasp the handle, whether the top of the lid faces toward you or is open and facing the wall. If you do not wish to use this feature, simply leave the lock active under the lid.

I accidentally dumped liquid detergent in the bleach dispenser. Should I be concerned?

Asked by: Keni1
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The bleach dispenser is flushed out with water during every wash cycle. As such, it is recommended to run a TUB CLEAN cycle, using vinegar in the DETERGENT dispenser. This should allow the bleach dispenser to flush itself of any detergents, as well as allowing the vinegar to cut through any detergent remaining in the tub.
