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, 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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washing machine! I bought this a little over a month ago. It is awesome! It's huge, quiet, and super quick! I feel like it doesn't take a full hour to wash my clothes. Also, it offers so many features which is really nice. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the options being on the front, but it's pretty nice and a lot more convenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sized to fit my small laundry room I've had this LG washer for three weeks now so it's been used frequently. It washes clothing very well, and I am impressed at all the decisions it makes based on weight and soil level of the load. Hugh drum for high capacity is fablous but there is my problem. I am 4'11 tall can cannot reach the bottom of the drum to remove clothes. I now keep a set to tongs to get to the bottom of the barrel so to speak. It is a noisy washing cycle which means we must keep the laundry room door closed. One feature I wish it did have...when finished it plays this cute tune once and no other signal to remind me the load is done....previous washer kept a signal going for a few minutes. Overall, I enjoy all the features it offers and hope technology will improve for top loader washers keeping short people in mind...ha!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice size but too many bells and whistles. I have been using this for two months. It is a super size washer--can handle even king size comforters. However, i am worried about the touch screen features. Sometimes it takes several tries pushing the on button to get the machine to start. I only use a couple of the features. If i had it to do over, I WOULD NOT have bought this washer. It is not worth the extra money to have features I will never use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delivered With a Broken Water Control Valve This washer has a lot of options which I like. However after the first few washes I noticed that the soap dispenser would fill with water and then dump it into the wash tub. This continued to happen. After several calls to service it was decided that the water control valve on the new washer was defective. It has been fixed. The only other issue is the sensitivity of the touch panel. I am 5'4" and can not reach the bottom of the washer, if I lean over the washer the pressure from my body resets the current settings so I have to be very careful. So having controls at the front of the washer is a problem. Also it didn't occur to me that the top of the washer and dryer are not flat so I lost my clothes folding area. I would recommend this washer but perhaps in the smaller model. Unable to get WiFi to work though.

Hi Suzanne75. The End of Cycle Signal on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Control Top Load Washer with TurboWash®, Model # WT1901CW does not have to be set for every load. It will always sound at the end of every wash cycle...^IFV

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).

Some washers have a separate drawer other than the detergent drawer for oxy powder. Can I just put the oxy powder in with the clothes? How do I add oxy powder when I am also using liquid detergent?

Asked by: Brooklyn p
You may place the powder directly in the drum. ^AC
