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.

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.

Here to help

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied purchase After having my previous washer for 12 years, I was hesitant to buy a new washer that was updated and all electronic. After reading reviews and hearing from friends and family who have the same washer, we decided to purchase this particular washer. I am very pleased with it! I had to read reviews that clothes did not get totally wet or washed but this has not been my experience. Everything gets clean and the water is spun out of the clothing really well. It really cuts the drying time in half. If you have reservations about this washer, please do not. It’s a great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but could be quieter I LOVE it! I have had to have help getting MYSELF out of it because it so deep (I’m 5’7), but it cleans great! It can be quite loud when filling & if it sits with lid closed for couple days I have noticed an odor, but press the self clean button & add a lil vinegar & it’s gone. My son can put 20 towels in it & it will still clean fabulously!

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).
