Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (5.0 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.

Fast Forward Your Wash

Give big loads the same great clean while cutting your wash time by up to 30 minutes* with LG’s enhanced TurboWash® technology.

*1. Compared to an LG front 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.

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.

Think you can’t do laundry on the go? Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.

Stylish Design You Can’t Wait to Get Your Hands On

Fingerprint and smudge resistant finish easily wipes clean with a soft, dry cloth, so the only lasting impression is your impeccable taste. At last, the kitchen you can’t wait to show off is the kitchen that handles real-life in style.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lg washer top loader This is a large capacity washing machine. I am 6'2" with long arms and have to stretch to reach the bottom of the tub. My wife cannot reach the bottom, therefore, unless you have a long reach, I would recommend a front loading machine. So far the machine does a very good job. It has numerous features, all electronically controlled, therefore, I elected to buy the extended warranty. Too many things could go wrong as time goes by. The machine senses the load and goes from there, if it senses wrong then there will not be enough water in the tub. This happened only once so far. I think it was just a fluke as it only happened once. I also have a LG gas dryer of about the same size and appearance which also does a good job. I am so far very satisfied with both machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works good My wife says it does everything great. The only drawback is it is too deep for a 5 foot tall women. Even with a stool she has to reach to get to the bottom clothes. Need to purchase a grab bar arm extender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase on a whim. We needed a washer asap. Ran a few reviews with LG products, never this one. However, this was in stock and available fast-track delivery. The purchase has proven a perfect decision. The drum is large (5.0 cu. ft.) and we easily can wash a king size quilt and 3-shams. Since, the drum is very deep, and you are not at least 5'-5/12" you may have an issue retrieving completed laundry from the bottom of the tub. We are enjoying the ease of use and low sound quality. No vibration (as our front loader was like an earth quake when at the spinning level). This one is slick. Also note: since this is an "Ultra Large Capacity Washer". Make sure your dryer is compatible with a 5.0 cu ft. drum washer. They don't have to be exact but at least a close match. Our dryer is approximately 5.4. cu. ft. Simply keep in mind, as you certainly would want to transfer your laundry to the a (compatible) large dryer drum to complete your wash.

I was wondering what the hose kit that came with my washer was for. I have the hot and cold hoses (bought separate) but it came with a short hose, long hose and Y adapter. What are those for.

Asked by: Saturnsam81
Hello, more than likely you are referring to the steam set up kit for the drying. Information for that starts on page 9 of the dryers owners manual if you plan on using the steam function. ^AC

The matching washer and dryer are models WT1901CK and DLEY1901KE. LG publishes a picture with these models side by side, and it shows they are the same height. But it all specs online, including the LG site, state the dryer is taller (40.1" vs 45.5") ????

Asked by: Teezie23
Its not taller, the dryer is 40.1" I went to Home Depot where they are displayed and confirmed it. The Home Depot rep stated that LG must have had an error with the measurement. They changed it with their sign (hand wrote it).
