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.

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.

Rutt143 5/23/2021

I love the fact that the controls are on the front of the machine the impeller is great not having to have the agitators in the middle of the drum and the drum balancing and load determination makes this a fantastic machine

WORST WASHER

shopgrl369 1/17/2021

This washer has not worked from day 1. All of my blacks are COVERED with lint all of my whites are stained. I complained and LG sent someone out to my house who basically told me I dont know how to work a washer. I need to use the HEAVY DUTY cycle with Extra Rinse which is over a 2 hour cycle.I have 3 kids under 5 I cant wait 2 hours for every wash cycle. Even when I do this the clothes are still trashed covered with lint and no stains come out. I have started taking stained items to my mother in laws house to use her washer to get stains out. I would never buy another LG appliance.

Too much stress whenever I use it

archjerry 10/18/2020

SO STRESSFUL and I cant stand it anymore. Whenever I use this washing machine mysterious white residue or dust keeps sticking on the clothes and giving me A LOT of stress. And its very hard to remove and takes quite a time to remove. I did run the cleaning cycle many times per the manual to solve this problem but it did not solve the problem at all. Actually it seems like quite many people are having the same problem and that means it is a design flaw that LG should do something for it. I bought this washing machine to clean my clothes and not to dirty my clothes and to have a lot of stress. LG appliances have always been my no 1 choice whenever I bought my appliances but now I am not positive if my thoughts can be kept up anymore. At least I would never recommend this product and maybe LG washer in general to anyone who wants their clothes to be washed and clean.

Washer is great but the lid hinges are defective

Alex8675309 8/24/2020

Ive had this washer for 2.5yrs and it works great however last month the lid hinges froze up and would not let the lid move. The lid plastic cracked when we tried to open and close it. I am handy so I removed the hinges took them to my shop and tested them. One side has springs inside the hinge and this is the side that failed. It will not let the spindle rotate so that is what caused the lid to freeze up then crack when we moved the lid. The other hinge is a fluid damper design and it seems to be working. My issue now is finding a correct replacement lid to fix my washer.

WT1501CW Stainless Steel Tub Rusting

OFW45 8/18/2020

I purchased this washer about six months ago and recently noticed that clothes were coming out with flakes on them looked like pepper. My neighbor took the drum out and found corrosion on the stainless steel inner drum. He said that the plating used was prematurely flaking off. We will see about getting a new tub but I fear we will end up in the same place in a few months. It is surely disappointing.

Lid Keeps Breaking

Wehavethem62 5/17/2020

Weve had this thing for two years and the lid had snapped of twice right at the hinges. I go back to Lowes to ask to see if anyone has had issues with this particular model and they claim there hasnt been any. I also notice while looking at the other LG washers they no longer make this type of lid. Must be for a reason.

This is the worst washer Ive ever used.

karl1000 5/8/2020

Weve had this washer for a year and a half. Here are our issues with it: 1. Clothes consistently come out of it with the marks they had when they started. And Im not talking about major stains Im talking about stuff that normally comes off easily. 2. It requires frequent tub cleaning. Junk builds up in the tub and then comes off on your clothes so they end up dirtier than when you started. 3. I realized it wasnt for waterproof jackets and things when we got it but it cant handle really any athletic clothing that even has a tight weave. Running shorts and quick dry pants for example. These things end up with junk building up on them even if the tub is clean. I would never recommend this washer to anyone. I am upset that we spent this money on it.

Not impressed

Jeff 23 3/22/2020

The worst washing machine I have ever owned. LG couldnt repair let alone figure out why it continues to leak on my washing room floor. They could care less after you buy A product from them if it works or not.
