    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.

          I like the larger tub in the washer and really like the simplicity in feature selection to match the wash for different items. The machine is quiet when washing. The only complaint I would have is that I wish the bell that rings when wash is done could be adjusted, since there are times I do not hear it when wash has finished. The machine does an excellent job on sheets, towels and I really like how it handles my synthetic exercise clothing and how they smell new again. I feel I am getting a great washes from a great machine.

                  This is a huge machine! I nvr thought it was that big, but so glad that I made it my choice. Once it was hooked up, I noticed all my loads were coming out hot. I then got a very bad digital response, called customer svc 2 c if they cud tell me whats wrong only after 2 wks! The Lg svc person came out (who was very professional n detected quite a few flaws n my machine), he made some adjustments n life is good, lol!

                      This washer, while it has a lot of washing options, is easy to use. My kids can just drop their clothes into the washer and can even do a load of laundry themselves, the buttons on the front are pretty self explanatory.

                              Have utilized a number of the settings and been extremely satisfied with the results. Takes some time and use to get accustomed to settings. No longer use detergent pods as they are too much detergent which causes machine to use more water than neccesary.
