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

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love with this washer I love all the functions of this washer. All my clothes feel clean and the washer never smells. It is also very quite. Couldn't have purchased a better washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't hate doing laundry anymore I love this washer. The drum is so big; it has cut down on the number of loads I wash weekly by at least 50%. It's especially helpful when needing to wash bedding. The control panel also makes it very easy to customize your wash settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great I like but some times detergent are still with clothes after wash. I had to re-wash to clean.
Date published: 2017-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I love it. It is large enough to wash a comfort or extra large load. It senses how much is in the wash so as to not waste water. It is also very quiet running and I like that since our bedroom is next to the laundry room!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only That Requires Unplugging Between Loads JUNK! I have to Unplug it between loads before it will turn on. HHGREGG warranty is also JOKE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from washer I really like this LG washer. The tub is huge. It uses less water and less electricity. the only draw back is it takes a bit longer than my old washer.
Date published: 2017-01-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product. Owned this product 2 months and it has been fantastic. It is intuitive to use, relatively quiet and beautifully designed. LG's instructions and online product registration/ information are equally well designed and easy to use.
Date published: 2017-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought my washer over a month ago. I was skeptical at first because there is no agitator. My biggest concern was that the clothes wouldn't come clean. I have been more than pleased! The clothes are clean and the washer is very quiet.

WHY am I getting the LE code 13 months after owning this machine. There is no foreign object stuck as I have seen you suggest. How convenient I am just one month past my warranty. 

Asked by: AllisonRd
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The LE Error Code, for a washing machine, indicates that the Wash Tub is not rotating properly. This could potentially be caused by the machine being overloaded. Troubleshooting steps can be located in the owner’s manual.

Why won't my washer start after pushing the play button? I have to play between the play/pause button and the power button in order for it to start. After loading and adding detergent and softner I push play, it locks and does nothing.

Why do I have to unplug washer after running a load every few weeks to get it to turn on again? Extended warranty through HHGregg is a joke, Intermittent problems not covered.

Asked by: Larry Dickman
Hi Larry. We regret to read about the issues that you are experiencing with your ENERGY STAR® Qualified 5.0 cu.ft. MEGA Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam, Model # WT5680HVA and apologize for any inconveniences. There are several causes for the machine having to be reset every so often by unplugging the machine then plugging it back on to get it to turn on. Unplugging the machine and then plugging it back on resets the control board and the causes could be the control board itself, a loose pin connector within the machine or a faulty door switch. Unfortunately, the machine will need to be inspected to determine the cause. If you would like to schedule a repair service, you can either contact the Call Representatives at our Support Center, (800) 243-0000 for assistance or visit our site at https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/find-repair-provider to find an LG Authorized Service Center in your area...^IFV

How do you set the soak cycle

Asked by: PuzLed
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Information about this feature can be found in your owner’s manual on page 24. After selecting a cycle, press the SPECIAL USE button to select additional features for your load. The SOAK option provides a 30 minute presoak prior to the start of the selected cycle. Use the SOAK option to presoak garments to help remove difficult spots or stains on fabrics. At the end of the presoak time, the selected cycle will begin with the same water used for the soak.
