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.

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 3 out of 5 by from Sophiisticated top-load washer with Wi-Fi I have had this Smart Thinq washer for about a week. It is a top-loader with a deep drum. It has a large touch digital screen display that I used to setup, download new washing programs, operate the washer, and even swipe the screen using my finger like a smartphone. Definitely the washer is hi-tech and sophisticated with its colorful display. There is an app that I installed in my android smartphone that I used to remotely monitor and control (turn-off) this washer. Being a top-loader washer I found myself leaning way over to get the last piece of clothing out due to its deep drum. I have gotten a small stepper to help me better reach in the bottom of the drum. This washer is not quiet despite what the specifications said about being Lo decibel. I found that it does make all sorts of noises and it is not anything quieter than what I have heard in my previous experiences. It does clean my clothing very well with its many different programs that is available. It was a bit pricey due to its hi-tech features. I have ran into issues with the drum being out of balance in which the washing cycle will pause until I manually spread the load and restarted it. Hopefully this out of balance situation won't occur too often and I will have many years of usage out of this new washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite and flexible We love it! Very quite, programmable wash cycles let you customize cleaning to your load. Large capacity means less loads. WiFi will notify you when your load is finished. Looking forward to many years with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love all the features of this washer. I like the fact that you can select everything that tailors to your needs. One thing I do wish it had was a lock out feature. I know it locks during use but you can't lock it completely.

Does the LG offer a washer with a warm rinse.

Asked by: George01
On the WT6001HVA, I only see options for a hot and a cold rinse, not a warm rinse. Although I do see a warm wash option. Only had this washer for 1 week so maybe this is something that could be downloaded into the washer.

how do I get my washer and dryer off demo mode?

I bought my washer and dryer, they were floor models and on a demo mode. Hown do I turn off demo mode?
Asked by: moonpies
If you see the ‘DEMO’ text on the screen, power off the product, and then unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to sit for about 60 seconds, and then reconnect it to the power outlet. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

Does this unit work with a tankless water heater

I've read that some of the HE front loader washing machines do not work well with tankless water heaters because they run water in short pulses that do not give the water heater time to activate. Is this true of this top loader unit (WT6001HVA) as well? The specs say it has an internal water heater--will that offset any tankless water heater issues?
Asked by: rocinante
Yes, you can use this model with your tankless water heater.

The washer makes load clicking sound when doing a medium size load. Is that normal?

Its only 4 days old.
Asked by: basweatt
The clicking sound might be caused by a zipper or metal button on your clothes, I'd remove that as a first troubleshooting step just to see if the clicking noise goes away.

Washer filling to slow message.

I have well water, and an iron filter which only allows the washer to fill very slowly. When I get this message, it stops the load and doesn't continue to wash my clothes. Is there any way to bypass this message as there is no other way I can have the washer fill any quicker unless I remove the filter, which would then, cause the high iron content from my well to stain the clothes that I am washing. Any help would be kindly appreciated.
Asked by: stormycindy
Unfortunately, no; a certain level of water flow needs to be able to work with the water pump and inlet valves. If it does not, there is a possibility of damage to the motor. This error message is advising that the water flow appears restricted and needs to be corrected.
