It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet I bought this a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier!
Date published: 2018-07-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality with Poor Customer Service Problems began after six months. Lights on dial spun, machine locked up. Followed CS instructions to unplug and press dial. Happened intermittently and increasingly in the following year. Now, after two years inoperable and leaking soapy water. Repairman is baffled. Replacing circuit board does not work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet and washes faster than I expected! I have had my lg washer for about a month and am loving it. I have had front loaders in the past and my complaint was always the same. It seemed to take a load forever to wash! However, with this set I enjoy the fact that I can whip out the laundry. My only complaint is that the preset wash temp is warm and I prefer to wash my normal loads on cold and I still haven’t figured out a way to change the presetting and it’s a pain to change the temperature.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 stars for leak x 2 One minor and 1 major leak sprung after 4.5 months of use. Origin of first leak unknown. 2nd leak was between machine door and sealing gasket. Was told by company this was due to excessive use of high efficiency detergent. Additionally, detergent dispenser had accumulated some goop causing residual water in dispenser after cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product I am very happy with the functions, default modes, and ability to change pretty much any setting. The overall capacity it holds is great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG!! and a great cleaner This washer is BIG. It can clean massive loads and even smaller ones as well. The biggest problem is accidentally using too much detergent. If your water is neutral (neither hard nor soft) then the very biggest loads require only about two tablespoons of HE liquid detergent. Smaller loads require even less. So don't use too much. I've had none of the famous issues with moldy smell, because I don't use too much detergent and I leave the washer door open when not doing a load. One of the very best features is the WiFi connection which allows the use of LG's Smart ThinQ app. The app sends a push notification to my smart phone when the washer cycle is complete, so I'm reminded even if I can't hear the "end of cycle" chime.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inaccuracies The reported depth of the shipping carton is over 1 inch smaller than the reported depth of the unit. Making it impossible to verify how it might actually fit within one's space at home.

I just purchased this washer 2 days ago. I noticed that there is an orange nozzel on top of the rubber seal of the door. I never seen it work and only noticr that it drips water at some points during the washing process. What does it do and used when.

Asked by: Banditione
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The nozzle in question is a water circulation valve. Due to its placement, its operation is not supposed to be obvious. For additional information about this feature, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
