    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.

    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 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.

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

                  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!

                          This washer does not use enough water to get your load even wet! I am so tired of looking in to the washer at the rinse cycle and seeing totally dry clothes. I am not talking about after the spin, I am talking about the after the wash cycle and before the spin.. Don't buy it! What good is saving on water if the clothes don't even get wet. Very dissatisfied with this product!!! I have to baby it and trick it to make it think there are more clothes in the washer by adding wet clothes! Thumbs down!

                                  Amazing how this machine uses just enough water to get clothes clean and wring them out almost dry. The only thing to me is the amount of plastic of the lid, etc. Chrome plated plastic does not impress me. Either the price should be cheaper for plastic or it should be chrome metal. I wish had got white instead. This color shows all dust.

                                      I love this washer. The large capacity is great. It gets my clothes clean. It is quiet. It is simple to use, and I love the knob free feature. I have only one issue. It's possible to change almost every option in a wash cycle, except one: the water level. I would like to be able to adjust this.

                                          I tread having to do a load of laundry, I'll start in the morning but cycle is cCONSTANTLY showing error, so I have to keep pressing the button to complete & stand by it because it just stops never fully spinning. One must add water- no agitator,don't even expect to get clean clothes after spending hours pushing the buttons. PURE JUNK!!!! And forget the dryer that also takes FOREVER! Clothes come out tangled and STILL WET!! The LG are the worst product I ever purchased VERY VERY expensive ...i SOOOOOO REGRET IT!!!!!!
