"Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Top-Load Washers"


Forget Something" No Problem.

This LG Washer has a built-in pause button that lets you pause your wash after it starts and drop in a stray piece of clothing


Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you" Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar" That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.


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.


Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.


Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.


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.

Loving this machine

jparg 6/18/2018

Its unfortunate they discontinued this model. Apparently there is a newer version in all black. I had searched the US for this particular model as it matches my dryer. I really enjoy this washer. Have been using it now for about 3 months and have NO complaints. Clothes get washed well this washer can handle quite a load too Love the front facing touch buttons. Overall very satisfied with this unit. Thanks LG

Laundry Woman 6/13/2018

This washing machine does a POOR job of washing clothes. I follow the directions precisely and the clothes are tangled and twisted at the end of the cycle. No soaking cycle Uses a minimum amount of water even though I choose extra water.

LG - Looks Great

TigerO 3/7/2018

Had rust issues with my previous LG washer. But overall washer worked great. Noticed new LG washer top section is not made out of metal or steel but fiber glass or plastic which should eliminate the rusting issue. So far new washer works like a charm and overall I am very satisfied. My wifes really enjoying this new guy

OMG What a disaster purchase. Not daily usage.

ExhaustedLGCliend 12/17/2017

I love LG products. Its matching dryer is great however this product is a disaster. The water pump and spinner gears have broken twice in 16 months. LG Service is super polite professional empathetic and apologetic. However I chose to buy this machine so I have to live with it. The product has no filter so the drain pump has to overwork then it sounds like a sewing machine a chainsaw then wont drain. The service people know when they arrive but never have the pumps because they are always on back order. ADVICE This is a sleek cool looking machine at a good price but terrible value. Please avoid. Once you get to around a year if you have children and use the machine alot you will start to have problems. For a single person who washes once a week this may be a good buy for you. Please do not repeat the same mistake I have. **** BUY THE EXTENDED WARRANTY *** I have it thankfully. The repairs cost more than the machine. LG said they may swap it out on the third disaster break down. I would never buy this model or its new line replacement model. It has a horrible design flaw. On the upside its providing jobs to technicians who cant keep up.

No, I do not recommend this product
