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.

Follow the tips below to make sure your LG product will fit in the space intended.

Not Happy

I purchased this washer along with an LG dryer and LG refrigerator in August of 2016 along with the 5 yr protection plan from Home Depot. Although I am happy with the dryer and fridge, this is absolutely the worst washer I have ever had!! After every wash, I have to hand vac the machine out because of some sort of debris that is left behind. I have called about this and even had my plumber check it out. LG has been very unhelpful and the Òprotection planÓ a complete waste of money. BTW, I live here with my adult sister and no kids so there is no reason for this to be happening. I am now use to vacuuming after EVERY use but in no way would I ever recommend this product!!

Bought this washer a couple of weeks ago. Very happy with its performance. It spins the water out of the load much better than my old washer. Love the ease of use and smart appearance.

Not bad at all

I have this washer for almost a year now and I haven't had any issues. Only thing is when I leave the lid open it kind of stinks.

Cleans well, rocks tremendously

I bought this washer as an open box deal from Best Buy. It was delivered without any feet underneath. As a result it always has uneven load sensing issues and rocks and is so loud it wakes up my son who works night shift. I tried everything to stabilize it. Still it wonÕt stop rocking and being so loud. Called Best Buy and LG no one cares. It should have came with the feet and to me this is very poor customer service.
