Stay connected with features like Smart Access and Smart Adapt, which allow you to monitor your laundry remotely and download new and improved cycles.

More free time

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.

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 Wont spin. Out of balance on every load Look up the reviews on other sites. All the LG top load washer stuggle with load balance issues spinning out water. It will take you 4 hours to complete a load. You have to babysit these hunks of junk. Better off buying a rock and beating the water out ot would take less time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not your typical top loader I love this washing machine! I have only had it for a few months now, but it is a rather sleek design, is very easy to operate, does not shake the whole house like my previous non-LG washer did at times, and handles twice the load size. I am particularly impressed with the absence of a central agitator as it makes getting the clothes out super easy. For a family of 4, this washing machine is a huge time saver and cleaning powerhouse. Although I haven't made use of the app yet, the washing machine is all set up over our wifi. Pretty incredible that the smart diagnostics tool could help LG troubleshoot remotely if need be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! One fantastic washing machine. Very efficient, judges the load, no agitator so no twisted clothes. Extremely large capacity. Very quiet. Clothes clean like a dream. BEST ONE I'VE EVER OWNED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this machine It is nice not to have to go to the laundry mat every time I have to wash the blankets and bulkey items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST washer I ever used I love my new washer....only problem is that it is so big and deep...and as a 5 foot little is very difficult to reach things on the bottom. To solve that problem, I keep a long tongs.nearby..and can reach anything still at the bottom. It is so beautiful...that I find I need to show it off to anyone that comes into my house. It is easy to use after I have worked with it for a while and became familiar with it.

Zigbee Module

Where can I purchase the ZigBee Module for this? My washer did not come with one, just a WiFi Module.
Asked by: CntryDoe
We appreciate your interest in the operations of this washing machine. A ZigBee modem relates to different utility companies. The manufacturer does not supply this device. However, it may be possible to obtain them online, or at your local Radio Shack. It may also be possible that the utility company may carry them.

can I get a front load washer with a door that swings left to right?

Current application need door to swing with hinge on the right so wet clothes can be put in dryer without lifting over the door
Asked by: Mamma
Top loaders do not have doors that swing to the side, our front-loading washers always have the hinge on the left.

Is this model a steam washer?

Asked by: JerryN
Hello Jerry, thank you for your question, Many of our front-loaders are Steam Washers, but as it turns out there are no Top Loaders with the Steam Feature. Ex.: WM4070HWA WM2655HVA We appreciate your feedback, please give us a “thumbs up” if this answer is helpful to you; and please let us know if we can assist you with anything else. Have a lovely week!

Water level in wash cycle seems extremely low. Water does not cover the cloths. Is this right?

Washer is WT5070CW
Asked by: FJay
I believe this is right...I think the wash load is weighed in the beginning and the correct amount of water is put in. I trust the washer.

Where can I purchase model WT6001HV. I would like to purchase at sears, however, I can't find it on any website. Has this model been discontined. If not, when is the release date.
Asked by: doralise
Please contact your local retailer for inventory related questions. As much as I am glad to help, there is some information I should let you know so you could understand a bit more how LG products are sold. Since we do not sell the products directly, I do not have information to fully help out locate products I am afraid. LG only manufactures the units and offers support for the products. Our products and accessories for the products are only sold through certified dealers such as Best Buy, Radio Shack, Sears, Home Depot, Sixth Avenue, etc... I would also like to let you know that LG Electronics does not actually sell directly to any of these retailers. Retailers purchase our products from various distributors; LG has no control over retailer’s inventory. If the dealer does not have the unit available for shipping at this time, I unfortunately do not have a way of finding out when it may be delivered since the dealers order their units through their regional sales representatives which would be a contact of their own, not from LG unfortunately. Then again dealers can as well special order a unit for you through our New Jersey's sales office which they would have to call in to themselves after you ask for a unit which off course must still be in production. I do apologize very much for the inconvenience.
