Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (5.0 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.


Stylish Yet Functional

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. Modernize your laundry room with this intuitive and functional design.


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.


Think you can’t do laundry on the go? Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.


Stylish Design You Can’t Wait to Get Your Hands On

Fingerprint and smudge resistant finish easily wipes clean with a soft, dry cloth, so the only lasting impression is your impeccable taste. At last, the laundry room you can’t wait to show off is the laundry room that handles real-life in style.


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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large Capacity! I can do a ton of wash in one load! It was an excellent deal when it came packaged with the LG Dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I absolutely love this machine. I bought it last month and haven't had any problems. I am still trying out different cycles, but so far it is performing pretty good. I love the water plus option because it allows you to add more water to your cycle. It has a lot of different options. There is also an app that you can download that allows you to use the wifi on your phone to remote start your machine from your phone and download additional wash options. It washes pretty fast and it does a good job at cleaning my clothes. No problems so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine Much nicer and roomier than the past two front-loading washers I've had over the last 18 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Wash Properly I'm standing over my washer with my phone flash light and started googling to see if I was the only one having issues with my washer. I have it on high spin but the clothes barely move 1 centimeter back and forth. In addition, I had to stand by and add water plus 3×s. Do you know why, it trys to save SOOO much water that all of the clothes aren't wet when it starts to wash! ***ATTENTION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT **** #1. LG, actually test the product before putting it out #2. Flashlight button would be extremely helpful #3. Make water plus an option, prior to starting. I have to babysit the washer, pause, water plus because I can't add water plus BEFORE I press start.OR have a function to turn the water saving mode off. I'll decide if I want to pay extra on the water bill. Thanks. The machine is beautiful I must admit, but functionally its alright. Anyone who gives this machine a 5 star, definitely never shined a light through the glass when the machine is on wash mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new features I finally pulled the trigger on a new washer/dryer set. I shopped for months and went with LG. I love the new features. Both units are efficient and quiet. I like the w a y the washer analyzes the load and procedes accordingly. The steam feature on the dryer, also great. So far very pleased with the units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We have had the refrigerator about 2-3 years. It is nice to have the double doors and the lower freezer. would have liked a lock on the freezer so the granddaughter could not open it to get treats. If it were not full I would worry about her falling into it. Coulld use a larger ice compartment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this washer three weeks ago and love it, I love that the controls are in reach and a week ago I purchased the matching dryer. I’ve had LG in the past and never had problems but through the years my washer finally gave up.

I have a queen size comforter but it is quite bulky and heavy....can I put in my machine

Asked by: Goop
With the largest capacity top load washer in its class at 5.0 cu. ft., you can fit most comforters and full set of king size bedding in a single load. This will vary due to weight and thickness of bedding. ^CP

I was wondering what the hose kit that came with my washer was for. I have the hot and cold hoses (bought separate) but it came with a short hose, long hose and Y adapter. What are those for.

Asked by: Saturnsam81
Hello, more than likely you are referring to the steam set up kit for the drying. Information for that starts on page 9 of the dryers owners manual if you plan on using the steam function. ^AC

Does the end of cycle signal need to be set for every load? I'd like to always have it on.

The matching washer and dryer are models WT1901CK and DLEY1901KE. LG publishes a picture with these models side by side, and it shows they are the same height. But it all specs online, including the LG site, state the dryer is taller (40.1" vs 45.5") ????

Asked by: Teezie23
Its not taller, the dryer is 40.1" I went to Home Depot where they are displayed and confirmed it. The Home Depot rep stated that LG must have had an error with the measurement. They changed it with their sign (hand wrote it).
