    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.

    The hottest thing in cold clean
    Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t have to mean compromising. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.

    Catch the wave
    If you thought water had done all it could to clean your clothes, you haven't experienced WaveForce™ technology. Rapid drum movement and powerful water jets provide a revolutionary washing and rinsing experience.
  • 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.
  • 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.

          Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Graphite Steel:

          I've had my washer for about a month and couldn't be more pleased. Clothes are clean and after drying are nearly wrinkle free. The energy efficient features mean we're using less water and electricity which is a bonus. This my 5th LG appliance purchase in the past three years and I can truly say I'm pleased with the quality and performance of everyone of them.

              The product is very good except it leaves the clothes all wrinkled. Don't know how to stop this. I did not have this problem with my other washer. I have tried lowering the spin cycle but that didn't help.

              Comments about LG 4.3 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Graphite Steel:

              I purchased by LG top load washer on 3/12/14 and on 3/25/15 the washer will not drain. I had the service tech (the store where I purchased, offered a maintenance agreement) out and it was determined it was the main circuit board. I am very disappointed with the dependability of this washer. My previous washer (different manufacturer) worked for 10 years without a problem. I truly hope this is not an indication of the reliability of this product. But I do like the features of this washer.

                  I am a person who researches every thing I purchase. There were many post about being out of balance and hard to operate. It's been 2 months and I never had any problems with anything. It uses less laundry detergent and if you follow the directions on how to load the machine, you should be ok. I love the glass top. The first few times I found myself watching the cycles run. So, don't be scared of this machine. It saves money and cleans the clothes better than my 7 year old machine I had before. Very pleased with my purchase.

                  I do not like the washer. The clothes do not come clean even when you use the heavy soiled option. I think an agitator would do this washer a lot of good.

                      This washer saves money by using less water and detergent. It is user friendly because the digital display is easy to use. It is so quiet that we can sleep in the next room while it is running. I even love the color - gray - not the plain, ordinary white.

                          I bought this to replace our old washer which died (and purchased the matching dryer). I am saving $50-100 per month in water and electric so it will pay for itself in a year or so. I love everything about this washer. It has a great capacity and I love the controls on the front. It works great even with small loads. I use Tide Coldwash with the ColdWater feature and my clothes come out great. The Tub Clean option is wonderful as well. It is so quiet, we can't hear it in the next room.

                              I love everything about this washer. Have had it for over a year and no complaints. It is beautiful to look at, love the front control features-makes so easy to access. No agitator means much more room. It runs quietly, and does wonderful job on cleaning clothes. My kids love the song it sings when load is finished.

                                  I've only had this washer for a few months but so far, all is well! I love the design of it, with the controls in the front - the lack of a raised-back control panel gives me room for an extra storage shelf in my laundry room, and who doesn't need more storage? My clothes come out clean and very dry, and the washer is very quiet. There are lots of features to choose from and it's pretty easy to customize each laundry load. And the fold-down partition on the lid is very helpful - I didn't know that HE washers needed to vent a bit between washloads, so I'm certainly glad that I have this feature on the washer! I"m still working on how to add laundry additives - e.g., powdered bleach and fabric softener. The manual's instructions in this respect are a bit vague - but I'm sure that I'll be able to figure this out eventually. All in all, this is a very good washing machine - it's a wave of the future, and I have no regrets in purchasing it. And I'm looking forward to many happy laundering days with it!
