A revolutionary spin on laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you? Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half—without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar? That's not just laundry done fast—it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top 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.

Get wise

Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

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.

Measure First

You found the LG washer that fits your lifestyle- now make sure it fits in your space. These LG models are larger than typical washers, measure to ensure your purchase can be successfully delivered and installed.

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 4.7 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not getting my clothes clean! I just bought the washer and dryer set in July and so far, am very disappointed with the cleaning of my laundry. Is anyone else having this problem? I am using the HE detergent too! They are quiet and beautiful in my new home but just not happy with how clean it is getting my laundry. Any advice? August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent capacity, quiet Love the capacity on this machine. It handles bulky loads and towels well. Runs very quiet. Excellent purchase so far. August 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Life is grand now that i can use my nu washer! This is a huge machine! I nvr thought it was that big, but so glad that I made it my choice. Once it was hooked up, I noticed all my loads were coming out hot. I then got a very bad digital response, called customer svc 2 c if they cud tell me whats wrong only after 2 wks! The Lg svc person came out (who was very professional n detected quite a few flaws n my machine), he made some adjustments n life is good, lol! August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Efficient Washer We have had the washer for about one month, it has operated perfectly. The washer uses less soap than a conventional washer, clothes come out clean and fresh smelling. I highly recommend this washer. August 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Awesome! My family loves how easy it is to use. Value was good! July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washer, Front Controls, Easy to Use Bought this for my wife........ she absolutely Loves it. Easy access to Controls, Very Large Tub, Quiet Operation, Cleans very efficiently. Extremely Satisfied with this product.....bought the matching dryer as well. August 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good machine washer is performing very well operation is simple and cleans very good August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like the larger tub and easy features selections I like the larger tub in the washer and really like the simplicity in feature selection to match the wash for different items. The machine is quiet when washing. The only complaint I would have is that I wish the bell that rings when wash is done could be adjusted, since there are times I do not hear it when wash has finished. The machine does an excellent job on sheets, towels and I really like how it handles my synthetic exercise clothing and how they smell new again. I feel I am getting a great washes from a great machine. August 9, 2015

I apologize, but no; this washer appears to only have a SIGNAL ON or SIGNAL OFF option. This information is shown on page 26 of the owner’s manual.

Why are my clothes so wrinkled?

Everyone is raving about this washer, and I just can't see why? What am I doing wrong? My clothes come out of it so wrinkled; like nothing I've ever seen before! The wrinkles do not all come out from the dryer. I have tried doing tiny loads, and used tried using fabric softener, but nothing is making a difference. What is everyone else doing that I am not?

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is suggested to check the incoming water lines attached to the washer. If the lines are switched, then this would result in a HOT WATER RINSE which would set wrinkles into the fabrics, which are difficult to remove without ironing. If this turns out to not be the case, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to further troubleshoot the matter.

on the wt1201, you have to connect a hose from the washer to the dryer to create steam.

Answer: 
No, this washer does NOT link to the dryer for steam. The water used to create steam for the Dryer is provided via a separate hose line to the dryer. During installation a "Y" connection is attached to your cold water outlet, with separate hoses, allowing water to flow to both the washer and the dryer with the "Steam" feature.

Just a spin cycle

Does this washer have just a Spin Cycle? I had a Kenmore frontload and sometimes would not drain all the water (wasn't pump either) and it didn't have a Spin Cycle that I could use to remove excess water. I had to use the Rinse cycle. ugh More water.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. According to our information, the serial number label should be located on the back of the control panel, upside down, so as to be seen from above, without having to pull the washer away from the wall.
