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.


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.


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.


Here to help

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 smartphone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Our new LG washing machine works very well

LisaBG 7/17/2018

I love our new LG washing machine. It works great and our clothes come out super clean. There is one annoying problem with it however. I have to overextend myself to reach down the top loading machine in order to retrieve the clothes out of the machine when they are done being washed. I have to stand on my tiptoes and reach as far as I can which is a little tough on my body.

The Elder 7/13/2018

Very nice machine and I am still amazed at the amount of stuff you can wash in a single load I would give it 5 stars for every feature except for one inconvenience. Its so deep that my wife and daughter both need a grabber to reach the clothes at the bottom of the tub once a load is done.

Too Smart Panel

Crpnrp 7/13/2018

In the store it showed an agitator in this washer. Well obviously there is no agitator. But this machine does bash your clothes around vigorously until the water starts to enter. I use Mule Team Borax but cannot put in any dispenser. Therefore I must pause the machine open lid pour in Borax close lid and resume washing. This is a pain to have the lid lock every time. Partly I like it and partly I dont.

Strangest washer I have ever used. Im 78 so have used a lot of them. The way it washes clothes is so different I dont know if I will like it or not. Have only done 3 loads. Clothes appear to be clean but the spin cycle is way too long and clothes come out really wrinkled so I used the no spin option on the last load.

kim4 7/9/2018

I bought this washer about a month ago cleans clothes very well. The lid is too large where it will not stay up with cabinets on top. The last spin cycle is so tight especially for delicates that I have to air dry it to remove all the wrinkles before hanging them to dry if someone can tell me how to change it please do. Ive checked the manual and theres nothing to change the spin cycle at the end.. I do like the large capacity size of the tub. I would recommend the product with a caveat.

Ive had this set for about 3 weeks and absolutely love the large capacity very quiet operation and all the setting options I can wash very small loads or large loads and it does a great job every time I like the load sensing feature so I dont have to tell the machine how much water to use it senses it and sets the water level accordingly. I also like the high spin feature because I can wash heavy items and they dont take a lot more time in the dryer. The front controls are also a great feature. Very happy with this purchase

Best Features - no noise and love the glass top.

Chris Osb 6/28/2018

I bought this washer after serious comparison shopping. The only thing I failed to consider was my height. Im 54 small frame and more than a little busty. Imagine my surprise when I could not reach the bottom of stainless steel basket and when I prop myself up to reach further down my body turns the control panel on. I have tried every angle possible to achieve this task with out success. I have to stand on a small stool to unload my clean laundry. I wish the design had considered short folks with normal arm spans. My 51 sister isnt able to load the machine correctly. Other than this one issue I love this machine the cycles are bit longer than my last model but nothing extreme. The noise level is zero and my laundry comes out barely wet and with no residue...ever

Too many selections

dianem 6/27/2018

The sensing drum which determines water level is a good feature. Good spin cycle. There are too many selections more than I will ever use. As my washer is in our basement the end of cycle bell is so quiet even at its loudest I have to set a timer in my kitchen to tell me the end of cycle. I like that the drum is large but I am 55 and have a difficult time reaching the bottom of the washer drum to pull out the clothes. I want a basic washer - Regular Permanent and delicate Hot/cold warm/cold cold/cold. Too many bells whistles. I have to leave a pair of cheater glasses at the washer so I am to read the selections.

Love/Hate Relationship

LS2short 6/27/2018

I have had my washer for approximately 3 weeks now. It does an excellent job of cleaning my clothes and though I am still getting used to all the features Im finding there is a setting to cover pretty well every circumstance. Overall I love it That being said I am 51 tall. This washer is very deep. Im not certain why it has to be quite so deep since very little water is used in comparison to my old unit. When you are 51 and try to reach the bottom to retrieve clothes it becomes something of a comedy act. My head is down my derriere is in the air and my feet are off the floor. Guess what happens then with all the power features located conveniently on the front? Yes. Its a comedy act. I have solved the problem for the most part by using a reacher to pick the clothes out of the bottom. It is still difficult with heavier pieces but its working. Now and then those power features still remind me that they are there. Right on the front. I really do love the unit though and would highly recommend it. Just grow taller if you can
