Forget Something" No Problem.

This LG Washer has a built-in pause button that lets you pause your wash after it starts and drop in a stray piece of clothing


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.


Sleek and Easy!

Goodbye clunky dials and knobs. With the new Easy Front Panel, the controls are readily accessible in the front of the washer. As if that's not enough, the sleek modern design allows you to find the right settings in no time.


The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn't have to mean compromising. ColdWash technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.


Get wise

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 smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.


Wash in peace

You shouldn't know your washer is on when you're in the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.


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.

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.

Awful

JASC13 6/17/2020

This machine is terrible. Id give it 0 stars if I could. Constantly getting the unbalanced load error despite all troubleshooting. Loads take forever to complete and routinely the drum fills back up with water defeating the purpose of energy efficiency. We couldnt get any LG recommended repair companies to come out let alone return my calls. Called a local repair company who said its the control panel and cost to fix is same as just buying a new machine. So a new machine it is. I will never buy an LG product again.

Just a piece of junk

myersra 6/14/2020

Ive had mine for about 5 years or so. Every 4 out of 5 loads is Uneven and gives you that UE code. Wastes energy and water consumption trying to level back out. Frequent OE codes also showing its clogged. Take it apart nothing is clogged. It also just doesnt wash well. I find my work clothes SMELL AWFUL Why after washing are they still stinky? Really? I run it through the other washer I have and no issues. Its just not a good product. Its been the most aggravating purchase I maybe have ever made.

Get ready to sit by your washer

A Hems 5/16/2020

Worked great first couple of years then it constantly reads uneven reading. It refills and tries to balance but doesnt. You have to pull things out and replace etc. The cycles go for over an hour + for a load.

Worst washing machine ever

Rick in Portland 5/12/2020

Ive had this washer for about 4-5 years now. Never have I had to babysit a washer until this one. Im constantly rearranging the clothes. On many many loads I have pulled out every garment and put them back in carefully the washer itself could never arrange it so evenly and yet it still comes up out of balance and tries to fill the tub with waterhence the babysitting. Ill never buy an LG product again. EVER

LG Washer WT1101CW

Chip B 5/11/2020

This machine is just six yrs old. Our last machine another brand was still working when we gave it to a friend after 15 yrs of service. We have been dealing with unbalanced loads door not locking clothes not getting cleaned wasting our time watching our load sensor think from early on. Shame on us for trying to make it work. LG should not hide behind their legal terms of warranty and do the right thing for the many of us who trusted you. To LG: You owe me and many others an apology and a refund. Otherwise I will be sure that there is NEVER another LG branded product in my home my business or anywhere I have influence regarding a purchase of a category where LG provides products.

It did a simple job but not like the Asian markets

Du Bau 4/13/2020

Bought a set washer and dryer to match July 2016. They lasted the years with only problems on washer. The door lock having issues since day one and two calls to support no help. We managed to work with it. The white clothes never were white lights clothes had to be washed only with other lights no mixing colors of any sorts or strange things took place. Now the Wash plate flies off Wash plate cap pegs are snapped I assume I need to replace the clutch and bearing plate assembly but feel I am just better off looking at another brand to ensure my clothes are actually clean and whites are white. Years past LG was one of the leaders in household appliances and one I would take over and above others in my homes in Asia.

Below average

61tharde 3/15/2020

Got a good deal on this washer a few years ago. Have had no electronic or mechanical problems no load balance issues. Main problem is cleaning work clothes nothing real heavy mainly yard work dont get clean and lighter clothes get mysterious stains after washing. Have tried different detergents and additives same results. Gave away another brand front load he washer that was working fine except for broken door switch which was rigged to work still being used by person I gave it to had no cleaning issues with it. Was leery about a top load w/o an agitator. Shopping for top load with agitator. Pros - easy to use controls large capacity Cons - cant add extra water hard to reach bottom of drum poor cleaning lighter colors get stains on them which werent present prior to washing

Waste of water

Kuki05 3/10/2020

This machine is horrible It doesnt wash your clothes properly because it doesnt fill the tank with enough water and many times in the spin cycle it stops and drain the water and fill it again... WASTE OF WATER especially when you live and have to pay top dollar for water..

wished i had never bought this washer

samham 2/1/2020

when i bought washer it was top of line has no agitator which was bad but acquaintance recommended. Have had over year it is horrible about balancing before spinning. now it takes about 2 hrs 15 min to do a normal load because it keeps trying to balance load. Washer says its energy efficient but how is that when it wastes many gallons of water trying to balance load. Top of all of that it does not clean cloths very well.

CarefulShopper27 12/30/2019

Reliable Great washer large capacity great variety of cycles. Electronics are very helpful - when we had our first problem in 6 years the repairman was able to diagnose it from the error message and fixed it in a half hour. We also own an identical large LG washer bought for a rental property which has NEVER broken down in 7 years.

Will Never Purchase LG Again

DougHowell 11/16/2019

This machine was advertised as self balancing. It was for about one year. Then it was nothing but trouble. We purchases the washing machine and dryer as a pair. The dryer is fine. The washing machine is a major headache. LG customer support is close to nonexistent. We have called several times and I am certain they outsource their customer service because understanding their representative was close to impossible. Bottom line this is how companies go out of business. They have certainly lost ours.

Hated this machine from wash #1

Nshakes 11/2/2019

I was wondering why this machine had so many 5 star reviews and then I started reading them and found out some of them are reviews for TVs and microwaves Most of the 5 star reviews for the washer are suspiciously vague. Weve had this washer dryer combo for a number of years now. Ive experienced all the issues that the other negative reviews mention. LONG wash times as machine drains and refills to rebalance itself. Wasted water not so great for living in drought-ridden California for the same reason. While others have experienced unbalanced errors with large loads I actually have experienced these errors mostly with small loads. Now if I dont throw a towel in with my load I can expect to get an UE error. Right away I noticed clothes not getting clean from normal wear. I have to pretreat EVERYTHING panties deodorant stains any kind of spill We have two cats and this machine just seems to move the hair around not really get rid of it. So now I separate my clothes into two loadsthose that are more cat hair covered and those that are notto try to reduce the amount of cat hair removal that needs to be done for my work clothes as an example. Because I have to give one star at least I will say that the spin cycle gets most of the water/wetness out of the clothes. Im glad to see this thing discontinued. Wish we wouldnt have bought it. Sucks that it costs so much money and is such a pain and expense to get rid of and replace

Horrible machine

Wastingalotofmytime 9/22/2019

Machine always goes UE at least 4 hours to do a single load of laundry. LG has tried to help by telling me the machine will adjust itself and for me to pause and adjust the load like I am an idiot who hasnt already done that. This is a known problem with this machine. I have also found that none of the other 1 star reviews have managed to make it on the website. Weird how that might happen..... . There are no pros to this machine nor this company... they dont care about service or product... will never buy one again and will no recommend to anyone.... you would be better to just burn your money than buy this or any other LG product

Brown/black flakes on clothes every wash

RobinW 9/5/2019

We purchased this washer 5 years ago. The washer is getting brown/black flakes on our clothes after almost every wash. Weve done everything we can do and that has been recommended with no resolution. These flakes are almost impossible to get off and if we can get them off without ruining the clothes it takes another washing--which may end up with more flakes on it Besides this issue weve been happy with the washer but this issue makes it worthless really. Getting ready to by a new washer...and it wont be a LG unfortunately. We have not been happy with the response from LG or Sears where we purchased the washer on the issue.

6 years only

French 8/24/2019

My washer was functioning ok sometimes error because was not balance. Now I can ear the pump running all the time even if I turn the power off. I have to disconnect the washer for the pump to stop running. I am disappointed for the short life of the Great washer. In top of that customer service was very rude and definitely I will not pay 125 dlls just to check what is wrong with the washer because I probably will have to pay for parts and service to be a total of approximately 300 dlls and they guarantee only for 90 days I better get a new one other brand for 600.

needanewwashingmachine 8/13/2019

We bought this washing machine about 5 years ago. It had been working okay. Now when i wash my clothes they come out dirtier than when they go in. They come out with black/brown flakes of something all over. Ive also gotten grease like stains on my clothes. Ive done everything to clean this machine that LG has recommended and nothing has helped. The LG service tech that they referred me to said its mold that gets caught under a disk and they cant do anything more to help me. So I guess this machine will now go into a landfill and I will be buying a new machine.

Great machine BUT ...

SilviB 8/8/2019

I purchased the washer and dryer am delighted with the look and overall performance but have the following issue which I complained to LG about over 2 years ago and again recently namely my clothes get marked - maybe 1 item in the load and not every wash cycle and the marks looks as if youve splashed yourself with cooking oil. LG initially told me to use Affresh or Tide tub cleaner which I have been doing for over 2 years but the problem persists. I have had to throw out a lot of items of clothing because these marks do not disappear. Last week an LG approved technician came out it cost me $90 because he said there was nothing actually wrong with the machine and suggested I do a bleach wash which I did and also switch to Tide and only Tide. I have since done 2 small loads 1 with light colors and both pairs of white pants came out with orange marks - I had nothing even resembling that color in the load and the other load with darker colors produced the usual oily looking streaks on a pair of leggings that I will need to throw out. The orange looking marks have diminished by scrubbing after the application of a stain remover but one pair of pants was a brand new pair of MK jeans so I am not a happy camper Today I have done another bleach wash followed up by a plain rinse and spin so hopefully everything tainted in the residue beneath the drum which I believe a liquid reserve is always there. I have looked at other reviews and dont see other people having this issue - they have others that I dont but this is costing me money in garments/sheets that I have to discard additional electric/water in running additional tub cleans not to mention the products.

WORST CHOICE I EVERRRRRRR MADE

Debjam 7/31/2019

I purchased this washer 4 years ago and it has been down more than Ive been able to use it. I purchased a warranty on it but of course it expired when the problems started. I purchased an extended warranty with Total Home Protection VERY BAD CHOICE. April 2018 it would not drain UE error the technician came out and supposedly fixed it. A month later it went out again same problem UE error. I had to pay another $60 for the repairman to come out again. On the 3rd try I was told the mother board needs replacing. The warranty company told me the part is on back order 3 months now FORREAL. Now they told me they will send me $100 to replace the part myself. I said all of this to say DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT. Now Im sitting her with a washer not working and I have only had it 4 yrs.

Horrible washer

BB ears 7/14/2019

About 2 years ago my reliable 22-year-old Whirlpool washer finally broke. I purchased this LG washer. I didnt know it was possible to dislike an appliance this much. First everything comes out of the washer very dry and wrinkled. Another reviewer posted a picture of wrinkled clothes that is accurate. The wrinkles are so deeply set it is almost impossible to get them out. Ive tried putting soaking wet towels in the dryer before adding the clothes. I have even hung garments in the shower and fully soaked them then let them dry on hanger but the wrinkles still show. Nothing works except strenuous ironing. Even my easy-care no-iron items like Jersey knits have to be ironed. I almost never had to iron before I bought this washer. Second it must have been designed by people who are over 6 tall. I am 5 8 tall and I can barely get the clothes out of the bottom of the machine. I have to use a step stool or stand on my tiptoes and drape myself over the front edge of the machine which actually hurts.

Bad washer

mywasher 6/3/2019

We have owned this washer since August of 2015 and it has been the worst ever washer. It constantly wants to refill when rinsing even after we have done everything suggested to remedy it. Its level and on a solid floor. It just doesnt work right. It takes forever to do a load of wash. I wish we would have returned it right after we bought it but we thought there was probably a learning curve and that was our mistake. Just dont buy one.

Washer failed in 4 years.

Jordan12345 5/24/2019

There are only 2 of us using this washer and it failed before 5 years. Luckily we purchased the 5 year extended plan from Lowes otherwise wed be out more money. The problem is that the drain motor keeps running even after the unit is powered off. We had to physically unplug the unit from the wall to get the motor to stop running. Repair guy whos coming out called and after we described the symptom to him said the control board is bad and new one needs to be ordered. Now probably looking at a week without a washer. 4 years? Really... They dont make them like they used to.

Bad engineering operation design.

LG tumbs down 4/30/2019

LG please send my regards to the people involved on designing this machine. High efficiency That is more like very poor efficiency. First of all worst buy Ive ever done Waste of my hard earned money waste of my time having to babysit the dang machine waste of water when it goes off balance this is a very non reliable machine that all it does is agitate for a bit then spin clockwise then counterclockwise is just very frustrating and disappointing. I know this is a discontinued Model but I hope youve learn from all the bad reviews and have done something about it. One thing for sure is that this is the first time I bought an LG product and the last Im so mad that Im not interested in giving you another try.

Large loads

Nancy N 4/20/2019

I love this washing machine. It takes really large loads of clothing. We have had it for 4 years and had no problems. yes - it can be hard to reach all the way down into the washer to unload it and like my other he washer you need to put in a special detergent to tub clean it a couple times a year. And I leave the lid open when not in use. No issues with unbalanced loads - in fact it balances almost all my loads with centrifugal force. Been a great washer for us.

Waste of money

Nancy in New Jersey 3/23/2019

We purchased this washer in 2015 because it was supposed to be energy efficient and it certainly is not. Almost e very load says its off balance even though it is level according to the booklet it came with. It wastes water by filling emptying and refilling just to get a load to be unbalanced. after three tries it will stop no matter how many times you adjust the load it usually does not fix it. I have wasted more time babysitting this washer so I can catch it before it stops spins out the water and refills again. My clothes dont come clean it wastes water and electricity.

Do Not Buy

Kellilyons 3/14/2019

We bought this machine a few years ago and I have never been happy with it. The machine was purchased for the large load capacity but was a big disappointment. The machine inputs water based on weight however when removing clothes for dryer there are places the clothing items are not even wet. Please do not even attempt to remove some splashed on dirt not ground in because amount of water provided will not do it. I have called customer service several times but they are no help. Because the machine has smart diagnosis for use with smart phones their only answer is it is working fine. I have been told to wash smaller loads in my large capacity machine which I have tried and does not help. I have been told to make sure the clothes are not tangled. Its a washing machine and they come out that way not go in. And I have been told to wash on the Bulky/Bedding cycle. That one actually works because it fills machine to capacity with water but totally renders useless the intent of a multi functioning machine that cost many more $$$ than its fewer functioning counterparts. Plus it gets out of balance constantly. All in all I hate this machine. I feel like it cost way more to operate than they claim simply because I have to use the Bulk cycle with every load.

Washer worked great until it didnt

LizGar 3/12/2019

I bought this washer in 2014 it was amazing at first. About a year ago I had to switch all loads to heavy duty to avoid the UE error. That error would ensure a full day just to do a couple loads. Then a couple weeks ago I got the E6 error. I spent the money on a new clutch took it to a repair shop and still no luck. Whats the point of an error message if you still have to guess whats wrong? A little help here LG? I still need a washer and cant figure out this code. Or why I could only use heavy duty to avoid UE errors.

keep getting the UE signal with every wash

earl22 3/10/2019

We bought the washer and matching dryer in August of 2014. The Dryer is fine the washer is terrible. It started getting the UE message about 2 years ago occasionally but now it is with every wash load. I spend an entire day doing three loads of laundry. Im talking seven to eight hours because you have to constantly monitor it and straighten it out. We made sure it was level couldnt be more level and it still gives us the UE message. We do the laundry the same as we always did. Defective maybe?

Goes uneven ALL THE TIME.

vs3729 2/10/2019

Ive had this washer for years got it new. About 75 of the time it goes uneven. Too many clothes not enough wrong mix of clothing weights combined together it rarely matters. Uses more water as it TRIES to sort itself out never helps. Just takes longer and uses more water. Never getting a model with these features ever again.

Didnt last

cwcdenver 2/4/2019

Terrible washer already having to replace and only a few years old. Have had several repairs on it starting within the first 2 months we had it and now to have replace after 3 years. Worst washer I have ever owned and not covered under warranty. It is so bad that I cant even run a entire cycle it shakes moves and is out of control. I have to stop it the last 10-15 minutes of any cycle I run even the delicate cycle.

Wonderful features

Marabmadmom 2/2/2019

Have enjoyed my washer except for the constant out of balance issue. When this washer works it is a dream but I have faced the issue of it being out of balance whenever I try to wash a small load or if I have a mixed load of any kind and it will take many tries to try to get it balanced well enough to spin properly and finish the load. The usual solution is to remove some of the soppy load and spin each bunch individually.

sucks

disappointeduserr 1/13/2019

Interestingly Ive had absolutely no problem with the uneven balance error. The high spin speed and its stability are the only things I like about this machine and maybe the only reason I havent thrown it out My problems with it: -No manual override to any of its automatic settings -Cannot change any setting once a cycle has started and attempting to do so requires turning it off and back on which automatically drains the drum -The pause button has a time limit maybe 10-15mins before it automatically drains the drum -No way to manually add water or control water level in any way and water level is its biggest flaw as the quality of clothes agitation is totally dependent on it. There are only two levels this machine chooses far too little or way too much and neither work. When water level is too low the clothes dont tumble and those at the bottom can get torn from getting beaten by the churning wheel or whatever called. With water level too high clothes still wont tumble and just float around doing nothing. -extra rinse option must be used every load or clothes will have soap on them I bought this machine used so I cant return it etc. My fix for the manual addition of water to correct level without having to pause it: Take the folding handle off this fix wouldnt be possible without this stupid feature the glass lid is also helpful here so that theres access for a hose to add water with. Put a 2 way splitter on the valve before the washer hose on the wall to connect another washer hose to. Use the valve on the splitter to add extra water with the hose through the hole from the absent lid handle. Removing the handle is a bit tricky and also requires the placement of a strong magnet over the sensor behind the control panel before any cycle will run. Its kind of a pain and I wish I had my 20yr old washer that worked much better than this high tech piece of junk.

Worst washer design ever

Unhappy washer user 12/30/2018

Girlfriend bought this washer dryer pair. The dryer great. Washer sucks constantly out of balance when it spins refills during rinse cycle multiple times to attempt to balance load rarely ever successfully. Cant take several hrs to complete a load if it ever does. Usually it shuts with after several refills due to out of balance error codes. Told her that if I move in with her this washer gets thrown out the back door before I move in one item.

Never Buy an LG washer again

LoriD99 12/17/2018

Never worked correctly. Can maybe place 15 items of kids clothing in at once. If all clothing is not the same type as in all shirts all pants all sleepers. Will read unbalanced and never finish. If any item of clothing is a heavier weight has to be washed alone. Even a heavy sweater. Not functional for our family at all. After struggling with it for 2 years buying a new washer of a different brand. Not worth paying repair fees in hopes it might work.

Always goes unbalanced

zak15 11/11/2018

bought in 2015 had to have serviced three times for going unbalanced memory board was also replaced - nothing stopped the problem. LG office located in Alabama gave a free maintenance visit - did not solve the problem. Electric and water bills due to this washer are extremely high. Do not buynew or used this washer. You will be sorry.
