Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (4.5 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.

Fast Forward Your Wash

Give big loads the same great clean while cutting your wash time by up to 30 minutes* with LG’s enhanced TurboWash® technology.

*1. Compared to an LG front 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.

Deep Clean With Steam

Our steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

For Small Loads that Can’t Wait

Whether it’s your kids’ favorite shirt, yoga pants or a school uniform, washing a full load seems wasteful for just a few pieces. Now you can wash small loads that just can’t wait with the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer or wash two loads at once to save time.

A Smarter Way to Wash

6Motion™ Technology uses up to 6 different wash motions to provide a smart cleaning experience that is gentle on clothes and maximizes washing performance.

Easily Maintain &
Keep Fresh

TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets and intense heat (up to 149 degrees) to sterilize the tub and help keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing capacity I bought the washer a couple of months ago and never looked back! I can now fit in double the amount of clothes, and everything comes out clean and fresh. Great choices of cycles as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I'm happy with the price and performance of my new washer. I love that the door is large and so easy to load with laundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer I purchaaed the washer and have been using for a few weeks. I belong to consumer reports online where I researched. Everything they said was spot on happy with the product. It did well with a load that wasn’t balanced, it cleaned clothes much better than the ten year old Bosch I replaced. The turbo cycle speeds up the washing time, and we completed a load in 50 minutes. Draw back it’s all electronic so it takes awhile to figure it out, and I am still doing that. I always think they should supply a instruction sheet that’s laminated and you can post by the washer. I have college age daughters that will require a lesson before they use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use I have been using this product for two months and I love it. So simple and easy to use it and a lot shorter cycle time and less water consumtion compare to my former washer Miele.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer! Bought this 3 weeks ago and let me tell you. This machine is great. Washes clothes faster and better than my last front load. Very quiet and easy to use. Clothes come out clean and nearly dry. Adjusts cycle time based on weight of the load. It is awesome. Can’t wait to get the matching dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG twins work great Our old set was thirteen years old and still worked well. This new set of LG’s work so much better. Wash cycle is quicker and more efficient. The dry time is so much quicker. Tons of options including steam dry to freshen and de-wrinkle cloths instead of washing every time. This is a big deal for that quick turnaround. What we really like are the chime announcements instead of that obnoxious buzzer. If you are where we were, give this new LG set a look. You will be very happy with the results and your cloths will show it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for 17 year old top loader Gets clothes much cleaner than my old machine, and much higher capacity. Some settings take much longer to wash, but a price I am willing to pay for cleaner clothes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice...but download doesn't work Washing machine works well, but I find it frustrating when a feature doesn't work that you paid for. I should be able to download different cycles onto this machine to use, but that feature apparently doesn't work in the United States. Seems like false advertising. I would recommend buying the cheaper model of this machine if you are considering it.

 I am looking to purchase a stackable washer and dryer.  Is the LG washer WM5000HKA stackable?

Asked by: Amersaba
Hi Amersaba. The Energy Star® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity w/ On-Door Control Panel & TurboWash® is only available in White, Model # WM5000HWA or in Graphite Steel, Model # WM5000HVA, ('HKA' would be a Black Stainless Steel and this washer is not available in that finish). The detergent dispenser for this washer is located on the upper front lip of the washer so you cannot stack a dryer on it. It is not a stackable unit...^IFV

What's the difference between this model and WM3770

Asked by: Wane
Hi Wayne. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash® Washer, Model # WM3770HVA, and the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash® Washer, Model # WM4370HVA, were released at the same time. The WM3770HVA does not have a Drain + Spin feature, so that is one of the differences in the washers.

I use vinegar instead of fabric softener.  The owners manual doesn’t mention not using vinegar.  Support on the LG website said vinegar can be used during tub or gasket cleaning.  Can I use vinegar regularly in the fabric softener dispenser?

Asked by: Missy1234
Yes, you sure can. ^AC

My manual and videos I’ve watched say that the NFC tag on feature is available. It looks like LG no longer provides the app. Does this mean this feature won’t work now?

Asked by: CoWoo
The LG Smart Laundry & DW App has been replaced with LG Smart ThinQ. Since your unit is not Wi-Fi, only NFC tag-on, you will only be able to use the NFC features within the app. ^AC
