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

LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.


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.


All the right moves

Get your clothes clean and experience a smarter way to wash with our innovative 6Motion technology. Each wash cycle combines up to 6 different wash motions to provide a revolutionary cleaning experience.


Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG washer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.


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.

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.

Very Poor Customer service

Rackety Washer 12/18/2023

I called LG since my washer was making a noise when spinning. They walked me through troubleshooting which didnt help. Scheduled a tech. I had to give LG my credit card # since they had to hold $401.00 until after the work was done. Supposedly this would cover everything even if there was a part that had to be bought. Tech came. He only unscrewed the back panel of the washer. He never took out any other tools but the small screwdriver. He troubleshot for about 10 minutes. He couldnt find the problem until he noticed the plastic Bleach container at the top left corner of the machine had dislodged and was on top of the drum of the washer causing the noise. The tech picked up the plastic container and pushed it back into place where it had fallen out of. He screwed the back panel back in place. I had asked if I would still have to pay him the $401.00 that was being held on the credit card. He said he had nothing to do with the payment but suggested that I call the LG number I had originally called to schedule the visit. I called LG as soon as he left. Talked to a very nice rep on the phone who said she thought I would get my full amount of money back. She connected me to another department. This rep was difficult to understand plus he had a bad attitude as soon as he got on the phone with me After I explained what the tech did and asked him if I would have to pay the entire $401.00 he said He fixed the machine didnt he? He only took out one screwdriver to take off the back panel. There was nothing wrong with it except for a small plastic container that had fallen off. He said he was writing a report and send to the techs supervisor. Fine. When would I know? He said he the rep would call me back the next week. Next week came and went. Noone from LG called me Noone called me to explain why I would have to pay $401.00 The next week I looked at my credit card statement and there it was I was charged $401.00. That full amount was charged on my credit card. I could understand if I had to pay for the tech being there but he did not fix any part or have to purchase any part. I am upset that NOONE from LG called to explain to me whay I was charged $401.00 for a plastic container that fell off the machine onto the drum of my washer. I have no problem with the Tech who came out. He was pleasant and kind. I hav3 a problem with NOONE explaining WHY i was charged that enormous amount of money. I am totally disappointed with LG and their lack of communication to the consumer. Will I ever purchase another LG washer or LG product? Probably not because the follow through and respect for the consumer is NOT on their list. Very disappointed

Parts too expensive and bleach dispenser rusted

Jeff Moore 11/11/2023

The washer only 8 years old. Already the bleach dispenser is rusted out and the inlet valve messed up. The inlet valve replacement is way too expensive. At over $110. Thats my honest opinion

Great washing machine

LisaC714 11/4/2023

Had a problem with the spin cycle and the woman that helped us was able to trouble shoot and help fix the problem and saved us money whereas we didnt need to purchase a new washer at the moment.

Dont buy this

Ahamel 12/10/2022

Dont buy this. Started leaking 2 months after warranty expired. Attempts to get it fixed were exhausting and expensive. Ended up buying a new machine Not an LG.
