Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar" That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.



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

Catch the wave

Great machine

Nancy stance 6/14/2018

This machine overall is pretty good. The only thing I dont like is the wash plate is made of plastic and should be made of metal. That way you dont have to worry about the gears shearing off so easily.

Love this washer

pitstopinpurg1 5/6/2018

I bought this washer on sale at Lowes in August 2016. It has been a workhorse for me. My Mom washes daily when she comes to visit and thank goodness it is energy efficient saving water and electricity. I do the Tub clean every month.

Awesome features.

Bought this for my mom and she loves it. It was a huge update from her last washer. She loves that it tells you the estimated time so she doesnt have to keep checking on the washer to see if its done. She loves all the features because its simple to use.

Choices are limited

I bought this a year ago and the fabric softener is leaking out the bottom. There are no choices to design your own wash cycle. If I am washing delicates there is a delicate cycle that runs 1hr 40 minutes. What I have other wash. Thats 2 hrs of electricity
