Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (4.5 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.


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, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.


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.


Deep Clean With Steam

Our steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.


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.


Take Control in Style.

We've integrated the electronic control panel into the door for a sleek, distinctive look and intuitive functionality you expect from an LG washer.

TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets and intense heat (up to 149 degrees) to sterilize the tub and help keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.

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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

3 stars for leak x 2

Submitted by Jim9 - 4/14/2018

One minor and 1 major leak sprung after 4.5 months of use. Origin of first leak unknown. 2nd leak was between machine door and sealing gasket. Was told by company this was due to excessive use of high efficiency detergent. Additionally detergent dispenser had accumulated some goop causing residual water in dispenser after cycle.

BIG and a great cleaner

Submitted by AtlantaJack - 3/21/2018

This washer is BIG. It can clean massive loads and even smaller ones as well. The biggest problem is accidentally using too much detergent. If your water is neutral neither hard nor soft then the very biggest loads require only about two tablespoons of HE liquid detergent. Smaller loads require even less. So dont use too much. Ive had none of the famous issues with moldy smell because I dont use too much detergent and I leave the washer door open when not doing a load. One of the very best features is the WiFi connection which allows the use of LGs Smart ThinQ app. The app sends a push notification to my smart phone when the washer cycle is complete so Im reminded even if I cant hear the end of cycle chime.

The reported depth of the shipping carton is over 1 inch smaller than the reported depth of the unit. Making it impossible to verify how it might actually fit within ones space at home.

Cleans clothes better than any previous washer

Submitted by DanielGonzales - 2/8/2018

Very quiet operation. Spins clothes so that they are just damp and need very little dryer time. The only problem is that if the door is left ajar after a wash as recommended by LG water drips out of the washer and onto the floor. Sometimes over a quart. No problem if door is kept closed or completely open.

Better than our old top load but jury still out.

Submitted by mcflash - 1/28/2018

We have had the washer almost two weeks so we havent put it through all the paces. It is quieter and cleans better than the top load washer it has replaced. After a few days the softener tray is not emptying the flush water the softener does empty. Not a big deal other than the fact the factory repairman isnt available for a week we received a message that they are apparently short of techs in this area. Not reassuring. The pedestal is a worthy addition so we dont have to bend over and crawl into the machine to remove the wash. Withholding our recommendation at this time.

Does the job

Submitted by mcs5 - 9/22/2017

Its been a year so far so good we like all the features although we havent used them all that much. I like how it senses the amt of clothes and adjusts accordingly I also like how you can throw the clothes in hit the button and walk away not waiting for the water to fill up like in a top loader.

As a stay at home mom with endless tasks getting this washing machine has truly saved me so much time and energy The amount of laundry that it washes continually surprises me.

Softener dispenser does not function correctly

Submitted by pegstein - 10/9/2016

I bought this laundry suite 5 months ago. The side kick is a very nice feature and works well although it isnt need very often. The dryer is fabulous - all cycles work as needed. The washer dispenser especially the softener does not function correctly. I use a minimum amount of softener and it is never fully rinsed out through the dispenser. I find that my white clothes come out with gray streaks and that colors are often dingy. The performance level is not worth the price.
