Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you? Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar? That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top 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.

Experience Steam Cleaning

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

Get wise

Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG dryer, 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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 193 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this machine I have had this washer a little over a month now. It is easy to learn how to use the washer. The turbo wash is a great feature. It gets everything I have washed really clean with very little water and detergent. The capacity is wonderful. I can fit much more into this washer than my last washer and still have room left. I would highly recommend this washer. Also it is so quiet you hardly know it is running sometimes. August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the huge capacity! This machine is such an improvement over my old one. What used to be 8 loads/week is now 4. Love how quiet it operates, too! August 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it so far! Have had this washing machine about a month. So far, I love it! It has some great options (bulky bedding, whites, heavy duty) that I use regularly. I like how it senses the load so it knows how much water to put in. So far, works great. Hope it lasts a very long time! August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love washer nice an big only have for a week but I love the washer. the only thing that happened is it became unbalanced with a rug and a towel in together. what do you do? I only ever had a front loader and never had that problem. but it is really nice and cleans great!! August 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by OMG This washer is so great. I don't have to go to the cleaners anymore just put my bedspread in king size and it is great, washes great. So many wash types to choose from. It's big and funny thing is if I have to reach down to get an item of clothing out I have to practically get a step stool it's so big!! Also I have the dryer great! Have a few other items by LG Thanks LG August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really enjoy this washer The time seems to go by quickly when I wash clothes and they are close to dry when I get them out. August 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my washer and dryer I wasn't so sure about a washer without an agitator. and I did not want a front loader. This does everything extremely well. Bedding, bulky, towels, delicates, sportswear and more. I am careful to dry out the bleach dispenser, and the softener and detergent dispensers. I leave the lid open for a while- since it is in a closet- I can leave it open most of the time. I wish it had more options for settings - it does have one you can set and save, but I would like to be able to fine tune some of the other settings more. The dispensers work well. I am very happy with this washer. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this washer I did not want to get a front load washer, so I looked at other brands to see which washer had the bigger size and features I needed in a washer. I saw this one online and then went to a store to look at it further. I am so glad we chose this washer. It is big enough to washer my quilt with room to spare. Plus I love how I can use the delay start feature. It has settings for any type of fabric. I haven't used the steam feature yet, but I think it will be one that will be very useful. I have had many types of washers over the years, but this one is the best by far. August 16, 2015

Where to put OxiClean powder?

Hi there,

We just purchased the WT5680HWA. Do we put the OxiClean in the tub when adding the clothes or do we add it to the liquid bleach dispenser?

Answer: 
The blue insert that says liquid detergent is removable. Take it out and put the powder in the tray without the blue insert. Do NOT use too much powder. Follow the instructions and make sure the powder is HE.

Answer: 
The manufacturer recommends the use of a liquid or powdered High Efficiency (HE) detergent in the appropriate detergent cup in order for the unit to be able to dispense the detergent and other additives at the appropriate time during the wash cycle. It is recommended to only use additives labeled specifically for HE washing machines.

Answer: 
Yes! Always make sure that the basket is empty of garments. Also, make sure each dispenser is empty of detergent, bleach and fabric softener. Your current washer should use liquid chlorine bleach when cleaning the basket. LG washers only use one Affresh washer tablet that is only placed in the tub, not the dispenser. Make sure to close the lid and wake the control panel up. Then select the Tub Clean option, or the Normal cycle on a hot temperature setting and press Start/Pause to start the washer. After the cleaning process is complete, open the lid and wipe out any remaining residue from the tub. That's it! That's how to self clean an LG top load washer.
