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 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to Unload purchased this model over the front loading washer because they said that you needed to keep the door opened on the front loader or it would mildew. I was very disappointed though when I realized that I could not unload the washer without using a stool. I am 5 ft 2" tall and I can not reach the bottom of the washer to unload the laundry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine was delivered in August 2017. I formerly owned a front load washer which I loved but hard on the back unless you want to spend the extra $500 plus for the platforms to put them on. My only complaint with my new LG top load washer is more of a personal problem. I'm 5'4" and the interior is so large I have a hard time reaching the bottom. I actually have to pull out a step stool lol. It runs quite and dryer works very well also. Plenty large enough for big loads. You can add extra water if you not into the "save water" feature. Former Cali resident, I save water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! Hate this product more than anything. Nothing like spending all day on one load because it goes off balance. Did everything the website suggested to try to fix it.... same problem. Waste of water and my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Even small loads will go uneven..and power issues I've owned these over priced washer and drier units for three years.. Washer constantly registers ue and after washing several loads in a row won't power up at all..they sure look good though..just don't work very well

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst washer ever bought this about one year ago and i hate it. it does not clean clothes. the wash cycles are very short and the rinse is longer then the wash. it uses over 100 gallons of water. that is not energy effecient in my book. i should of kept my old washer it cleaned the clothes better and didnt use 100 gallons of water per load. it wasnt cheap either. total joke of a washer. wash cycles r 130 min. and clothes r not clean. HATE HATE HATE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has awesome features! I like the uniqueness of this washer. I just bought one from Lowes about a month ago and it works great!! Easy to press buttons and I like how the controls are in front--good for disability access. I love how it can hold a lot of laundry. It also has a tub rinse option and this helps if I throw my cats dirty laundry in there or dirty towels. Glad I found a good washer and with the LG name. I trust LG! It also has anti vibration for the spin cycle. I can barely hear when the spin cycle is on! So great!

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.

My washer is saying i.e. After about ten min of starting a load of laundry 

Asked by: Stephanie87
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The IE error code is indicative of an INLET ERROR. This is designed to appear if the water level does not rise to the appropriate level within 30 minutes. This can be caused by a restricted/crimped/pinched water line, or by a clogged INLET filter. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

Can i wash my queen size blanquet , ? Is it too heavy??

Asked by: Ale1973
Regrettably, we do not have any of how much your Queen Size blanket weighs, however, the general consensus among Home Washing Guides is that a washer with a capacity of 3.5 cubic feet will comfortably accommodate a Queen Size Comforter and one with a capacity of 3.8 cubic feet will accommodate a King Size Comforter. With a capacity of 4.5 cubic feet, the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Capacity Top Load Washer with Front Control Design, Model # WT1150CW will accommodate a Queen Size Blanket. Keep in mind that a wet blanket weighs quite a lot more than when it is dry...^IFV

Why won't it wash only with hot water?

Asked by: Helpme169
We regret your dissatisfaction with this washing machine. This model is designed to default to WARM washes on most cycles, as is described on CYCLE GUIDE shown on page 20 of the owner’s manual. For additional questions or specifications, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Hello, our washer is about a year old and we have had issues with clothes coming out with lint and hair all over them and we are not washing towels in the wash at that time. A lot of the clothes also have detergent streaks all over them. How do we fix it?

Asked by: Mmiller
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is recommended to run a TUB CLEAN cycle to attempt clearing out any detergent, lint and hair which might be caught up in the drum. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to further troubleshoot this situation.
