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.
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.
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 smartphone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Cleans great!I have had this washing machine for a few weeks now and the cleaning capabilities far exceed my previous two machines! It is easy to operate and the cycles are clearly highlighted when selected. Sometimes the start button is touchy, though the other controls work well. I would caution that the drum is deep, which is great for sheets and towels; however, you need a long reach to get to the bottom of the machine. Overall, a great product so far!

How to check basket for foreign objects
Asked by: Phantom81
Turn off the washer and then press the Power button. Press the spin speed button without selecting a cycle to drain and spin the load. When the spin is complete, remove the clothes and then find and remove any objects caught in the wash plate. Always check pockets, etc., before washing to prevent error codes or damage to the washer or clothing.

Is it normal for clothes to be hot at the end of a cycle? I know the manual says all rinses are done in tap which I would think would be cold. Even when I have washed in cold or cold tap after the wash is complete my clothes are hot.
Asked by: Kinzz913
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is recommended to test the washer by running an empty load using the TAP COLD water temperature setting. If the water starts getting HOT, then the water lines are backward and need to be switched. If this does not resolve the situation, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
