Product Details

LG 24" White Compact Front Load Washer - WM1388HW

Just because you need a washer with a small footprint, that doesn't mean you need one with a small capacity. Even though it measures just 24" wide, the LG WM1388HW provides an impressive 2.3 cu. Ft. capacity. Similar to its impressive use of space, this LG compact washer is incredibly energy efficient. With an estimated yearly energy cost of just $14, you'll be hard pressed to find even another compact front load washer that requires so little power. And by sensing the precise amount of water necessary for each specific load, this washer uses significantly less water than other similar machines.

In addition to being incredibly energy efficient, this LG compact washer was designed with several features to make it easy to maintain. The dependable inverter direct-drive motor, responsible for the various movements of the drum, utilizes fewer moving parts than the motors of most washing machines. Its straightforward design minimizes potential points of failure, reducing the need for repairs. This compact front load washer also comes equipped with a durable stainless steel drum to avoid rust that occur in other popular drum materials. The LG WM1388HW also includes a simple, yet innovative, magnetic door plunger. This plunger allows you to prop the washer door open slightly so that the tub can fully dry when not in use. If, nonetheless, the tub ever smells or seems less than pristine, this LG compact washer features a TUB CLEAN cycle to restore its freshness. And should anything eventually go wrong, the machine's Smart Diagnosis™ feature gives service centers the ability to diagnose most issues over the phone. If you're looking for an energy efficient, compact front load washer that was built to last, the LG WM1338HW fits your every need.


  • Inverter Direct-Drive Motor
    The inverter direct drive motor, which is directly connected to the drum, is capable of producing multiple
    distinct motions for optimal wash performance with very little noise and vibration. The motor assembly
    also contains fewer moving parts, resulting in fewer repairs.
  • Smart Diagnosis™
    Should you experience any technical difficulty with your washing machine, it has the capability of
    transmitting diagnostic data to your smart phone via a free app or directly to the Customer Information
    Center for quick and efficient troubleshooting (refer to page 38).
  • TUB Clean
    Regular cleaning of the tub on a monthly basis using TUB CLEAN can help keep the tub clean and fresh.
  • Magnetic Door Plunger
    Safely and conveniently secure the door slightly ajar with the magnetic door plunger. This will promote air
    circulation and allow the interior of the machine to dry. To use this feature, remove the clean laundry then
    position the door so that the door is almost closed. When the magnetic door plunger comes into contact
    with the metal washer cabinet, it will secure the door slightly open allowing the interior of the washer to
  • Large Capacity Stainless Steel Drum
    The large capacity stainless steel drum offers extreme durability and is tilted to improve efficiency and
    allow easier access for large items.
  • Child Lock
    Use this option to disable the controls during a wash cycle. This option can prevent children from
    changing cycles or operating the machine.
  • Detergent Dispenser Drawer
    The four-compartment dispenser drawer makes it easy to separate the pre-wash detergent, the main
    laundry detergent, liquid bleach, and fabric softener into different compartments and will be dispensed
    automatically at the appropriate time.
