More free time

Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The Ultra Large Capacity (4.7 cu.ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.

The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t have to mean compromising. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.

Catch the wave

If you thought water had done all it could to clean your clothes, you haven't experienced WaveForce™ technology. Rapid drum movement and powerful water jets provide a revolutionary washing and rinsing experience.

Get wise

Get wise

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 smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

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.

Wash in peace

You shouldn’t know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance™ anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.

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 Pump leaking at 16 months Was 1 year in June and just flooded our laundry room (16 mos. old). Appears to have a leak in the pump. Extremely disappointed in the cheap materials that would allow this to happen just over a year. Checked for coins or some "cause" for the leak, but honestly I'm pretty diligent with checking pockets and would have been surprised to find anything...which I did not. Not a cheap product. Will never buy another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Garbage Cycles are extraordinarily long. Washer becomes unbalanced at the drop of a hat. Clothes are not cleaned. Speed cycle leaves tiny holes in clothing after a number of uses. If I could haul this piece of junk to the curb and let someone steal it I would. I have never had such a bad appliance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wondering if my clothes are clean This is the worst washing machine I have owned. It either puts too much or not enough water in the tub. Sometimes clothes hardly get wet. I have used the add water feature then it puts too much water in the tub. Seems like I am always playing games with it to get enough water to wash the clothes. I know it's supposed to be water efficient, but this is ridiculous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Washer A little deep to reach to the bottom to get clothes out. Need a meeting to add more water if needed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesnt Clean! We have had this washer for a couple of years and we hate it! Spent so much $$ on this and it takes way too long to go through a cycle and nothing comes clean. My Husband works HVAC and never had a problem getting his work clothes clean with our old 20 year old washer. Wish my old one hadn't died and wish I wouldn't have bought this machine

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate this thing It doesn't get clothes clean. Easy stains don't come out. After a cycle I can blot with a towel and get stains off myself. So it's clearly an issue of the machine leaving clothes dirty. Also the cycles are way too long. The timer on it isnt accurate enough to call it an estimated time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Washer off balance I have this washer for over a year now, and mostly have no complaints until I have to wash a heavy load of bedding. I bought this washer because of the capacity however even with one queen size cotton blanket, i get an error message right at 13 minutes before the end of cycle. This is quite frustrating because I purchased a large washer to be able to handle our bedding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! Purchased this washer in 2013. Almost immediately, we needed to have it serviced because wash cycles were lasting almost 3 hours. Technician said the filter needed to be replaced. Worked for a while, but even with replacing the filter, the washer takes FOREVER to finish a load. We've just suffered through it, but a couple of years, but now the washer just stops mid-cycle 2 to 3 times, and requires one to re-start it. Dreadful.
