    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.

              WOW! I had no idea how poorly my old washer was working until I started using this one. It was obvious from the very first load of towels -- cleaner, brighter, fresher, softer. I used the exact same soap, amount of soap and the same softener, and amount of softener. Bliss. I am tempted to rewash my entire closet!

                      Replaced my 25 year old washer with this one. LG was recommended by friends and they were right! This baby does it all. Being in California where we have a drought, this washer gets everything clean....even king size bedding...yet uses only enough water to get the job done. Love all the wash setting options. And best of all it is super quiet and fast. I can now do twice as much laundry in one load thus saving even more water. Very happy!

                          I was one of those skeptics who thought clothes would never be clean without the agitator. I have washed clothes for forty-three years, and I have to admit that the laundry was never as clean as they are with my new LG washing machine. It is a very user friendly machine. I love the Tub Clean cycle I run every month. I'm now happy to do laundry.

                              I did not want a front loader so when I saw this washer I researched it. It was just what I wanted. It determines the size of the load and then uses just the right amount of water. Takes all the guess work out of the wash load. Also, the washer is very quiet. After putting up with a noisy washer for years, I had to keep checking to make sure it was running......I am thrilled with it. And it was not nearly as expensive as some of the front load machines. Definitely pleased with my purchase.

                                  I love my lg washer and dryer. The clothes are much cleaner than in my previous washer. I like the options, saves water and electric. Iam 89 years old, but have no problems in using all the options. Love my LG

                                      I purchased this product at the recommendation of my son who has owned and used one for a year and is extremely satisfied with it. I have not been disappointed. The washer is efficient, quiet, easy on clothing and easy to use. The price for an appliance with so many features is amazing.

                                              So far everything is working really well. I love the little tune it plays at the end. The clothes come out really clean and it's nice to use he detergent. The only thing to be aware of is when washing heavy items the spin cycle may need to be changed to a lower level.
