More free time

More free time

Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The ultra large capacity (4.5 cu.ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.

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 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.

How to run small cycle? Or which features to use if I want to wash only one shirt.

Asked by: Jyoti
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. A single item should not be washed by itself. Doing so will result in the wash load becoming unbalanced, and can cause abnormal vibrations in the machine, which can potentially damage the product. For additional information, review the suggestions listed on page 14 of the owner’s manual.

Ive noticed recently when the washer is off, the jet sprayer port leaks small amounts from time to time into the tub. Haven't used the washer in 3 days, still seems to be wet. I felt around the jet spray hole and hose, both are moist. Is this normal?

Asked by: JTTT
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Is the washer lid being left open, as is recommended? If the water is still leaking into the washer, then the water valve, or another related component, may require service. 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
