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

Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you? Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar? That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.

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.

Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

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 No Agitator This washing machine does a POOR job of washing clothes. I follow the directions precisely and the clothes are tangled and twisted at the end of the cycle. No soaking cycle!!! Uses a minimum amount of water even though I choose extra water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for short people The washer does add enough water, even after adding on the water plus option, to get all the soap and dirt out. I constantly have to use the extra rinse cycle with isw therefore not saving any water. The bulky cycle is the only one that is really useful. Also I am 5'1" and there is no way to reach the bottom of the tub without using a step stool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG - Looks Great! Had rust issues with my previous LG washer. But overall, washer worked great. Noticed new LG washer top section is not made out of metal or steel but fiber glass or plastic which should eliminate the rusting issue. So far new washer works like a charm and overall I am very satisfied. My wife's really enjoying this new guy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OMG What a disaster purchase. Not daily usage. I love LG products. It's matching dryer is great however this product is a disaster. The water pump and spinner gears have broken twice in 16 months. LG Service is super polite, professional, empathetic and apologetic. However I chose to buy this machine so I have to live with it. The product has no filter so the drain pump has to overwork then it sounds like a sewing machine, a chainsaw then won't drain. The service people know when they arrive but never have the pumps because they are always on back order. ADVICE This is a sleek cool looking machine at a good price but terrible value. Please avoid. Once you get to around a year if you have children and use the machine alot you will start to have problems. For a single person who washes once a week this may be a good buy for you. Please do not repeat the same mistake I have. **** BUY THE EXTENDED WARRANTY *** I have it thankfully. The repairs cost more than the machine. LG said they may swap it out on the third disaster break down. I would never buy this model or it's new line replacement model. It has a horrible design flaw. On the upside, it's providing jobs to technicians who can't keep up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have had this washer for almost a year now. It has good features and runs problem free. It's mega capacity is very helpful in making less time needed for washing. This is my 3rd LG washer that I have had in about 15 years and non of them broke down during my ownership time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Clean My review title, 'Deep Clean,' has a double meaning. One meaning is that this machine does an exceptional job at getting out dirt, stains, and odors, using a minimal amount of laundry detergent. I love the useful options available for each load. Bulky queen size blankets and bedding, towels, and throw rugs get washed without it sounding like the machine is shaking the house foundation. This machine is easy to use and efficient. The second meaning of, 'Deep Clean,' is that the tub is deep. If I were any shorter, I would not be able to reach the clothes at the bottom. I am 5'4". If you are interested, I suggest going to the store and trying out your arm length to tub depth ratio. Perhaps a low step stool would alleviate that problem for shorter individuals. In summary, I am super happy with my new washer and would recommend it to taller family and friends who are in the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't clean, doesn't rinse Clothes come out with soap still on them or dirty. Repairman said with these super efficient washers, you need to add water to cycles. So I add extra water and/or extra rinse to EVERY cycle and yes, I am using the correct amount of detergent (repairman showed me how much to use so it isn't too much). This washer doesn't clean well at all. Despite adding extra water and extra rinse, clothes are still dirty. The repairman also said these top loading efficient washers are not for people who get their clothes dirty. So I'm using more water, and more energy, for clothes that come out dirty. Lesson learned - I will never buy a top loader again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's okay. Wouldn't buy another one. I bought this washer a few months ago and I really dont like it. If you over load it, it will keep trying to spin out and then it adds more water and spin out again. So you have to stop it pull and pull out soaked towles since it keeps filling up with water. The machine should STOP and drain the water and give you a signal that it is over loaded and cant spin out......
