Get it All Done In Less Time

Mega capacity (5.2 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.


Fast Forward Your Wash

Give big loads the same great clean while cutting your wash time by up to 30 minutes* with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology.


Deep Clean With Steam

Our steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.


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.


6 Customer Care Cycles

LG SideKick offers six distinct wash cycles, including a special setting for active wear.


Simultaneous or Independent Operation

LG SideKick saves time by washing two loads at once or get it all done by washing a small load separately.


Raises Your Washer

LG SideKick allows you to easily access laundry for more comfortable loading and unloading in the main washer. Compatible with all new LG Front Load Washers.


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.


Easily Maintain & Keep Fresh

TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets and intense heat (up to 149 degrees) to sterilize the tub and help keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.


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

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.

Clothes come clean

Ikonkennel 3/2/2020

I had first purchased a the new GE washer it was a joke would not dispense the detergent. Exchange for the LG I should have made it my first purchase. I have lots of dog laundry so I sanitize most loads. Love how clean the clothes dog bedding and towels are.

Issue resolved working good now.

R11 Renovations 1/2/2020

After breaking down after about 10 wash cycles and waiting around 2 weeks to get it fixed its working great. The rubber seal between the door and tub twisted and was leaking but did get fixed. It was quite a hassle though getting the parts and the technician to get it fixed. Overall not bad and like the size. It can handle big loads.

Tobamember 9/29/2019

Bought this about a month ago and only got about 10 washes out of it before it broke down. The door seal twisted and it look like the drum sagged down. Started leaking. LG slow to respond repair company even slower. Waiting on parts.....

The best washer I have used

Alittle 9/3/2019

I have been using the washer for almost a month. Due to the capacity of the washer I was able to catchup on all the laundry that has been piling up and now I am able to keep up with all of the dirty clothes from my 2 young kids and husband. I love the feature that rotates the drum after the wash load is finished to prevent odors from setting in. I can start a load before bed and know that is will be fresh and clean when I wake up the next morning. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend the washer.

Well-designed machine

Positano34 5/30/2019

This is the third - and by far the best - front-loader that weve owned. We are very pleased with the robust mechanical design as well as the user interface and controls of this LG washer.

I Love This Washer

MindFields 4/8/2019

This is our first front load washer and we were concerned about purchasing one. A trusted Appliance Repair Tech told us not only is a front loader washer better and more efficient then a top loader but that the LG was a super great washer to buy into. After having the wash now for the past several months we can not agree more with our Appliance Repair Tech This washer does a standard load of cloths in 35 minutes and they come out perfectly clean. Super quite and easy to use The only sad issue is that I see that this washer model is Discontinued? Perhaps its replacement is even better? In conclusion we are very pleased with purchasing this LG Washer

Wonderful washing machine

kat6033 1/1/2019

I purchased my LG WM8100HWA over 2 years ago 11/16 and have been extremely satisfied with its performance. As other reviewers have noted most of the cycles are a little longer than preferred but my cloths come out clean and not beat to death like top loading models. I have used every cycle but the Steam and use the Tub Clean cycle about once a month. I will write another review next year.

Plenty of Room

sixwina 7/18/2018

Well I love this machine which is very quiet clean clothes and sanitized function. The reason I gave 4 stars is the door. why isnt it clear so I can see through instead of turn the light on. Whats a unwise design.

efficient and quiet

Munchie 7/2/2018

Ive only used the machine a few times and am very happy with it so far. It is very quiet compared to the top loader I had. My only complaint is I wish the bottom line of the front display panel would light up. I have to use a flashlight see it. No setting for darks either.
