Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (4.5 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.

Stylish Yet Functional

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. Modernize your laundry room with this intuitive and functional design.

A Smarter Way to Wash

6Motion™ Technology uses up to 6 different wash motions to provide a smart cleaning experience that is gentle on clothes and maximizes washing performance.

For Small Loads that Can’t Wait

Whether it’s your kids’ favorite shirt, yoga pants or a school uniform, washing a full load seems wasteful for just a few pieces. Now you can wash small loads that just can’t wait with the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer or wash two loads at once to save time.

Troubleshoot Easy as 1-2-3

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 smartphone, helping you minimize costly,
inconvenient service calls.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product!! I just recently bought this lg. It's very quiet. Does a wonderful job getting grease and fuel stains out. It has a lot of options too. I had owned a lg front load for 15 years and loved it too. Lg does make very good washers and dryer. It is a self diagnosis so you will know what the problem is, no guessing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, fantastic product. Had washing machine for 2 weeks and have used for different size washing. Any cycle used for washing and the clothes came out clean. Very surprised since my last washing machine did not wash very well. Very very happy with this great product from LG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look of my new washer! I switch from a front loader to a top one because of the mildew problems and I love my new awesome looking washer. I wanted something that would make less noise but this one is just as noisy, but the vibration is a lot less with my new LG, the close does get wet with the extra water you can select but the cycles do take a longer time than my old one specially for really soil clothe. So far it gets my clothes clean and smelling great. Easy to use as well. Love the look, love the features, love my new LG. Life is Good!!
