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 4.6 out of 5 by 845 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really like this washer I feel this washer is very well made. I like the fact that the washer determines how much water is needed, and that very little detergent is used. The washer is very quiet. Everyone in the family enjoys the little song the washer plays when the cycle is complete. All in all, this washer is a great replacement for our former front loader, which was not an lg. I also like the smartphone feature and have used it several times. I'm very satisfied with this washer and would recommend it highly. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great. Absolutely love this washer. It is huge! One load instead of two loads means I'm saving time, energy, water, soap, everything. It sets it's own water level so I can do large or small loads without adjusting anything and balances the load no matter what's in it, heavy or light. Great machine. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Large Tub Plenty of Features Super Quiet This washer has a huge tub and is super quiet. It has plenty of feature to meet all of my family's washing needs.I would recommend this LG product to anyone. August 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy - unbalanced all the time We have had this washer for a few years and have had nothing but issue with it coming unbalanced. No matter how it is loaded or what the load is it comes unbalanced with every load. Seems to be an issue for a lot of people. I don't usually post bad reviews but the cost to buy this machine is too high not to warn others. We will be replacing ours and it is still on warranty. July 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by WIsh I hadn't bought this This washer doesn't get my clothes clean. I find myself rewashing clothes all the time. Water pools in detergent dispenser and bleach dispenser. The perfect recipe for mold. I will end up removing the detergent and softener tray permanently, but I'm stuck with the bleach tray, which always has water in it. I needed a new dryer and bought the set. Love the dryer, but would love to have my crummy old washer back as well as my clean clothes. July 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I wanted a front loader but did not have the space. Once I was made aware that this has the same technology, it was an easy choice. The large capacity washes King sized bedding without undue wrinkling. The choice of settings allows me to customize my loads for superior cleaning. Uses the appropriate amount of water per wash load is a money saver. I highly recommend it. June 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by BAD PURCHASE Bought this machine about 2 1/2 years ago, moving into new house and wanted new appliances. This was a bad purchase. Machine doesn't add enough water to cover your clothes and only gently swishes them. I bought a bucket just for adding water to this machine. Sometimes if I add too much water it will spin some of it out, but still enough to cover the clothes. Washing a load of clothes is definitely a 2-3 hour job. I often put a load in before I go to bed because it takes so long to swish my clothes. This machine doesn't clean clothes well and I have to rewash many things, often, whole loads. Waiting for anyone in the family to say they need a washer, they can have this one. I want an older model machine, one that actually washes clothes. The matching dryer works great. June 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst appliance I have ever owned. Give me my center agitator back. This machine is a giant soaking bathing machine. If you have one spec of dirt on your clothing be prepared to wash it by hand. Also, don't do a small load because it will take all day being out of balance. It should not be called a washing machine because it does not wash, it barely soaks the clothing if you can get enough water in it to cover all the clothes. May 22, 2015

Here is the product manual link:
http://www.lg.com/us/support/software-manuals

You simply press the PAUSE button, wait until the cover unlocks, add your extra clothes and press START again.

Also, there is a column of buttons way to the right and along the bottom of the knob that allows you to conduct other special features.

Wash Cycle Doesn't Work

Hello - I have this washer and the "wash" cycle does not wash the clothes. It will spin to fill with water, spin to drain, etc but the "wash" cycle just has the clothes sitting in water while the it does nothing.

I called LG customer service and they did not know what was wrong. Can you offer any assistance? Thank you.

Answers

Answer: 
Question? How do you know that it is NOT doing anything? This model has the automatic locking mechanism that locks down the cover so you can not open it while it is in any of the cycles unless you PAUSE it and then open it? Remember, this is NOT the same as your old agitation washer, there is no agitation used in this washing machine. The clothes just get tossed in the washer, the washer senses the load, adds the appropriate level of water, and fills up to that lever, then their are short bursts of starting and stopping of the tub which creates a WAVE, which pushes the wave of water over and through your clothes; kind of like ocean waves lapping against the shore or a rock, which cleans your clothes (hence the name wave force). At first this sounds absurd and you may wonder how this action would get my clothes clean, but it works great! It is the force of the water washing over the clothes that get them clean. I haven't taken out any clothes of the washer that were still dirty after the entire washing cycle was done. This washer is WHISPER QUIET because of the way this methodology works. My guess is that you may have thought the you would 'hear' some sort of agitation, but this is not the case. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The majority of the wash cycle is performed by the movement of water through the fabrics by the impeller at the bottom of the machine. The movements of this, as well as motions of the tub including, but not limited to, spinning motions. While there may appear to be limited motion, this does not mean that nothing is occurring.

Depends on how big your baby mattress is? I think I would take it to a commercial Laundromat and use of of their EXTRA LARGE washers to wash the mattress.
