    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.

              This washer is amazing, you have the controls in the front of the washer and they are easy to reach. You have the option of soaking versus not soaking in the front load. I can wash my king size comforters without any problems.

We can load so many clothes in it that it cuts our laundry time in half! We give this washer 5 stars!!!!

                      Have been wanting a Large capacity washer for some time.... was tired of doing multiple loads of wash, especially when it came to our King size bedding. This washer is amazing....EVERYTHING fits! and there are so many wash options and combinations available ... there's a cycle for anything you can think of. LOVE the front controls. It's very quiet, washes great, and while larger in cu. ft., is actually smaller than the washer it replaced. I spent weeks researching washers... glad I found this one... AND it's matching dryer.

                          We had a front loader that was 4 years old and when it was unbalanced it would walk. This machine does not do that and it removes the water as good as a front loader.

                              Holds huge loads and gets clothes really clean. Previous washer was large capacity but could not hold more than 4 towels without bouncing around and going through cycles to balance out. UG washer spins and self correct loads with little noise and interruption of cycles. Also easy to use and washes large bulky stuff like blankets, mattress covers, etc.

                                      This is our 3rd Washer in 10 years, for 3 different places. Second one from LG. One of the great brand which delivers a great product every-time. Quite, large and cleans the clothes efficiently. As other's have noted that they have balancing issue. None here, Used, Hot, cold, Delicate cycles do a great job. Best of all it is fun to watch per my son when the magic is happening.

                                          I have owned several washers over the years and they all do about the same thing wash clothes. The question is do they keep running and are the clothes coming clean. 2 years ago we moved into a new house which came with new appliances, one of which was a whirlpool washer. The clothes never seemed to come out clean and fortunately we purchased the extended warranty. Within 2 years we had to replace the washer as the warranty company decided that it was too expensive to repair and bought us out of our contract. We purchased the LG washer which also uses less water but the clothes are clean, holds more clothes and gives me more options on the cycles. I am sold on this product cannot imagine not having this machine.

                                              The large capacity helps me get through laundry so quickly. My old washer was still working great, but it was 14 years old and all the fins on the agitator were broken. We figured it was time to upgrade. We love our new one. Looks nice too!
