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 kitchen you can’t wait to show off is the kitchen 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 5 out of 5 by from Great washer so far - just don't fall in I am not a washing specialist, I use basic only - and Bulky. So I wanted the 5.0. Note though this thing is way deep. I am 5'10 - and now use a grabber to get clothes rather than bend over to the point of being laying on the panel. Does a very good job - VERY quiet though seems to throw water out with a bit more noise at the end. I am very happy with this machine. A slight down side - the on and run buttons are flexi plastic and a bit stubborn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new washing machine. I’m saving in water because it automatically detects the size of the laid and adjusts accordingly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this about a month ago. I honestly looked at it for 3 days. Thinking how do I really use this? I read the directions(YES I DID). And it s so simple!!! My husband (YUP) and I watched it in amazement!! How does this really work?? Our clothes are cleaner. I taught my kids how to use it. So simple. Love love love (yup I did that) this machine. Will tell everyone about this. Not lying it’s the truth!!! It saves water and saves on your bill. My husband and sons are fireman. This will get their clothes clean if they have a major fire (thank god they have not had one yet). One works construction, tire company, and department of public works. My boys are 6 2-3 so major loads are in this house. My girl. Well she is 5 7-8. But Girls take care of their clothes differently. Everyone knows that. Thanks for your time. It’s a amazing washer!!!!!

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

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).
