Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (5.0 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.


Fast Forward Your Wash

Give big loads the same great clean while cutting your wash time by up to 30 minutes* with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology.


Stylish Yet Functional

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. Modernize your laundry room with this intuitive and functional design.


A Smarter Way to Wash

6Motion Technology uses up to 6 different wash motions to provide a smart cleaning experience that is gentle on clothes and maximizes washing performance.


Think you can't do laundry on the go" Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.


For Small Loads that Can't Wait

Whether it's your kids' favorite shirt, yoga pants or a school uniform, washing a full load seems wasteful for just a few pieces. Now you can wash small loads that just can't wait with the LG SideKick Pedestal Washer or wash two loads at once to save time.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Satisfied purchase

epaw81 7/14/2018

After having my previous washer for 12 years I was hesitant to buy a new washer that was updated and all electronic. After reading reviews and hearing from friends and family who have the same washer we decided to purchase this particular washer. I am very pleased with it I had to read reviews that clothes did not get totally wet or washed but this has not been my experience. Everything gets clean and the water is spun out of the clothing really well. It really cuts the drying time in half. If you have reservations about this washer please do not. Its a great purchase

lg washer top loader

Sander4324 5/27/2018

This is a large capacity washing machine. I am 62 with long arms and have to stretch to reach the bottom of the tub. My wife cannot reach the bottom therefore unless you have a long reach I would recommend a front loading machine. So far the machine does a very good job. It has numerous features all electronically controlled therefore I elected to buy the extended warranty. Too many things could go wrong as time goes by. The machine senses the load and goes from there if it senses wrong then there will not be enough water in the tub. This happened only once so far. I think it was just a fluke as it only happened once. I also have a LG gas dryer of about the same size and appearance which also does a good job. I am so far very satisfied with both machines.

Sized to fit my small laundry room

Plano girl 3/17/2018

Ive had this LG washer for three weeks now so its been used frequently. It washes clothing very well and I am impressed at all the decisions it makes based on weight and soil level of the load. Hugh drum for high capacity is fablous but there is my problem. I am 411 tall can cannot reach the bottom of the drum to remove clothes. I now keep a set to tongs to get to the bottom of the barrel so to speak. It is a noisy washing cycle which means we must keep the laundry room door closed. One feature I wish it did have...when finished it plays this cute tune once and no other signal to remind me the load is done....previous washer kept a signal going for a few minutes. Overall I enjoy all the features it offers and hope technology will improve for top loader washers keeping short people in mind...ha

Delivered With a Broken Water Control Valve

mctrozzo 3/1/2018

This washer has a lot of options which I like. However after the first few washes I noticed that the soap dispenser would fill with water and then dump it into the wash tub. This continued to happen. After several calls to service it was decided that the water control valve on the new washer was defective. It has been fixed. The only other issue is the sensitivity of the touch panel. I am 54 and can not reach the bottom of the washer if I lean over the washer the pressure from my body resets the current settings so I have to be very careful. So having controls at the front of the washer is a problem. Also it didnt occur to me that the top of the washer and dryer are not flat so I lost my clothes folding area. I would recommend this washer but perhaps in the smaller model. Unable to get WiFi to work though.

Great options

tobi2 1/15/2018

Have had this washer for about 2 weeks now. It is my second HE so Im familiar with how the water level works. Cloths are clean. My only complaint is that being 52 even on a step stool I have trouble getting the cloths out of the deep drum. I wish the salesman had pointed this out to me. It is not something I would think of when shopping for a new washer as I have never had this problem before. I would have looked for a washer with a less deep drum. The thought of how uncomfortable and inconvenient it is to remove the clothes and the fact that I will have to deal with this for the next however many years this machine lasts is not fun.
