Features:

  • Fast Forward Your Laundry
    Tired of spending hours on end finishing your family's laundry? Now, those days are gone. LG's revolutionary TurboWash™ technology allows you to save 20 minutes on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance!* It's like pressing the fast forward button on your laundry.
    *Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton/Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8-lb loads, front load washers only. Excludes other LG manufactured products. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.
  • A Revolutionary Spin On Laundry
    LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
  • Experience Steam Cleaning
    There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.
  • 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.
  • 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.

HUGE TUB!

I chose this washer because so many family members switched to front loaders and were buying new machines within 5 to 7 years. I have kids that loved to overload my heavy duty Whirlpool which always caused the fingers on the agitator to break. Even though I had 19 years with that machine I wanted to try something without a agitator so I read tons of reviews on washing machines. I'm a guy so I just want to throw mixed laundry in, add laundry detergent and let the machine do its thing. My family told me they had to watch their front loaders for unbalanced loads so that was another reason I didn't want one. Their were some reviews that said top loaders also had that issue, but I haven't seen many complaints so I thought I'd give this Huge Powerful LG a try. The machine is compact for the Huge loads it can handle. I wanted something big enough so I wouldn't have to take my King size comforter or adult sleeping bags to the local Laundromat. This machine has no problem fitting large items in it. I like the front control panel, I don't have to reach over the washer to select my settings they are easy to read right in front of me. The tub is deep, just as deep as a front loader but it seems deeper to a short person reaching in, so my suggestion to the shorter folks is to get a step stool. I'm 5' 10" and can just reach the bottom to get small items such as socks out. Some reviews say without an agitator the clothes don't get clean enough. That was my worry before I saw how nice my clothes and towels came out of this machine! It doesn't look like their is much water in the tub during the cycle, but you have water/detergent spraying from the top at times and the jets spraying from the bottom which you don't see. The bottom line is my laundry smells cleaner than my agitator model and I can feel how much more fluffy my towels are! I have only used the bulk setting for bedding, normal wash with fabric softener, and the turbo wash cycle and have had no issues what so ever. As far as noise and vibration of the machine, yes their is vibration that is well controlled and as far as noise this puppy runs up to 1100 rpm! So yes I hear it upstairs through my hollow basement door. It is noticeable, but only when it is in high spin cycle and it is not that bad. When I pull my laundry out it is darn near dry already! I love this machine! The only reason why I didn't rate it 5 stars is because this is my first LG appliance and I haven't seen how durable their products are for the long run. I've seen my parents Whirlpool washer/dryer set go for the 18 years I lived at home and then my Whirlpool set last for 19 years. So far the technology LG has with this machine is great, now to see if it stands up to the test of time...

This washer does not use enough water to get clothes clean. It takes forever to wash a load. If it becomes unbalanced, it keeps filling up until the load is balanced--this may go on for an hour! I would like to be able to control the length of time it washes and how much water is in the tub.

      Comments about LG Mega Capacity White High Efficiency Top Load Washer:

      I bought this in September 2016. I did some research and it did have some negative reviews, but the majority were positive so I purchased this and was very very glad I did. It does everything the owners manual says it does. It's quiet, spin cycle works great. I can extra water when I need to, but that's been very rare. It handled my king size comforter really really well. The use of the HE detergents lasts such a long time because you only use so little, approximately 2 Tablespoons and the cleaning and size of this machine is fantastic! Would definitely recommend this product.

          I absolutely love the large tub. Because it is without an agitator it has so much more room and do a much better job of cleaning my clothes. It is also perfect for my dog beds and blankets.

              This is my first brand new washer, my husband and I argued over a few different ones, I kept looking at ones that were flashy but more expensive. He and I both liked this model the most and the price was perfect. I've done more laundry the past few days than I ever have. I love how easy it is to set up and start. I also love being able to see into the washer while it's running, so I can see all the dirty water and know my clothes are coming out clean.

                  I love the large capacity. The drum is pretty deep...so laundry for short people is hard to reach at the bottom. My clothes are clean, on matter what setting. I would like it if the buttons were to the back of the washer, not the front.

                          I've had the washer for a few months now, I have never been fully pleased with any of my past washers. I was used to the agitator in the middle But this washer doesn't have that, this washer performs better than I expected. It is highly efficient and does a great job and sensing an accurate load.

                              Our old laundry pair was 18 years old and the washer finally said it was too tired to go on, it wanted to retire. I had been looking at LG washers in the stores and reading reviews for two years now and jumped at the chance. The stainless steel tub is HUGE, with no agitator to take up space or get tangled on clothes. The settings take a little to get used to, but I have finally figured out how to wash everything! I love the dispensers and, I love how quiet this machine is. Our clothes come out very clean in a normal amount of time.
