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.

Here to help

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 Second LG Washer. LG Loyal! Bought the washer a month ago to replace another LG washer that had fulfilled its useful life. Easy to use and gets clothes super clean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this washer a few weeks ago. I just love it. It has a huge tub but only uses the amount of water needed to do the load. I owned a front loader previously and did some research before purchasing this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top load washer Works well, I like the option to add additional water in a wash load for extra dirty loads. Super quiet operation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG washer This machine is awesome! I love having clean clothes again! The direct drive is something new for us and my husband can’t believe how well it works. My parents had bought anLG washer and dryer and recommended it. So glad we purchased this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and easy to use I bought this machine less than a month ago and am so glad I did! The easy close lid is wonderful, ensuring that it won't inadvertently get slammed. The user interface is easy to understand, and I am satisfied with the options for wash cycles and temperatures available. It's great having a machine that senses the load and automatically determines the water level needed. The front control panels make it easier to reach. And quiet!!! Such a gloriously quiet running washer...Even with a bulky load like a king-size comforter load!! I would highly recommend this to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I bought this I've had this a month and am thrilled. It cleans well, is quiet, and has all the cycles/features I need. To anyone who complains that it doesn't fill with water, I suggest they do some research. Modern washers aren't allowed by law to fill with water, so don't expect this to work like your old Kenmore. It uses different technology AND my clothes get clean. I particularly love have a delicate cycle again. My last (died-at-35-months) machine didn't and was so rough on clothes that it ruined some before I had to buy lingerie bags to protect them. The way it sizes up the size of a new load is so entertaining that I made friends watch it when they came to visit!

Why does the washer steam up and the clothes come out warm and steamy after the cycle is complete even if using a cold wash and/or a tap water wash?

Asked by: Lora 5862
Hello Lora 5862, that does not sound right. It sounds like the water inlet hoses are reversed (our hot and cold inlet valves are on opposite sides than other brands). ^AC

can you use detergent pods

Asked by: larry 10
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Control Top Load Washer in White, Model # WT1501CW is a High-Efficiency washer and it is recommended that you always use either powdered or liquid High-Efficiency (HE) detergents with it since it is specifically designed for use with HE detergents which contain suds-reducing agents. Using regular detergents don't dissolve completely and that can lead to oversudzing, poor rinsing, and detergent buildup in clothing and in the machine that can contribute to odors in the machine. There are HE detergent pods available in supermarkets and stores so be sure to look for the HE logo on the pods. ^CP
