Smarter Washing

With its Smart ThinQ™ technology*, you might just wonder if this washer is almost as smart as you. Stay connected with features like Smart Access and Smart Adapt, which allow you to monitor your laundry remotely and download new and improved cycles. The Smart Grid Ready feature automatically runs the washer when electricity rates are lowest.

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 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. May 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome buy Cleans great. No out of balance. No wrinkles. No smell. Easy to program. All the bells and whistles. October 15, 2013

Answer: 
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.

tOO MANY WRINKLES

When doing a delicate cycle, the clothes come out with "permanent" wrinkles which do not come out when dried. How do I prevent these wrinkles. Running the load on no spin doesn't pull out any water. I have clothes I am embarrassed to wear and I didn't buy no iron clothes to have to iron them and some of them can't be ironed. What is the solution that I can't figure out. Thank you.

I have found it impossible to follow your directions in order to find other reviews and/or to write my second review. I can't find my first review, nor can I find an answer to my question.

I have asked before how I am supposed to keep lint and hair from going from my new washer (back into my clothes) or into my septic tank and fouling my septic field. What is the filter on the bottom left supposed to catch, anyway ? Maybe a cat, but certainly not cat hair. Whatever it is, it would have to be very large to be trapped in that wide open filter.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this washing machine. Please confirm the model number in question, as the WT6001HVA top load machine does not appear to have a filter, other than the Inlet Water Valve Filter. Our front load washers do have a filter in the front, but this filter is designed to catch large objects, such as coins, etc., to keep them out of the pump motor.

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.

Answer: 
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.
