3.7 cu. ft. Large Capacity High Efficiency Top Load Washer

With 3.7 cu. ft. of large capacity, this high-efficiency top-load washer is loaded with innovative features to provide a great washing experience. The TrueBalance Anti Vibration System is designed to reduce washer noise and vibrations, while the Electronic Control Panel with LED display and soft-touch buttons help you select the right settings and cycle everytime. Bundle these with the 10 year warranty on its Direct Drive motor, and you can see that this washer is a great choice for both performance and reliability.

More free time
Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans Go for it. The large capacity (3.7 cu. ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That's time saved and sore backs avoided.

Wash in peace
You shouldn't know your washer is on from the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to reduce washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even if it's on another floor.

Get wise
It's unlikely you'll experience any problems with your LG washer, but if you ever do, 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.

So Fresh and So Clean
The TubClean Cycle is designed for easy, periodic maintenance to keep your washer fresh. The cycle uses water jets to clean the wash tub, and high spin speeds to remove excess moisture, helping to keep your high-performing washer in tip-top condition.

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 warranty.

Smarter in many ways
Saving water doesn't mean compromising cleaning power. At least not when you have the SmartRinse Jet Spray System. The tub quickly spins as a powerful water jet sprays into it, forcing the water to penetrate through the clothes for effective rinsing.

Easy as 1,2,3
No need to watch the clock while you wash. EasyDispense takes the guesswork out of doing laundry by allowing you to pour in your detergent, bleach and fabric softener all at once, while releasing them at just the right time.

No Snags
Instead of a bulky, inefficient agitator, this washer has a low-profile, highly-efficient impeller. And both the NeveRust impeller and wash tub are made of durable stainless steel, avoiding nicks that can snag fabrics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by great machine This washing machine is fantastic. It has a space age look but is actually very easy to operate and it's capacity is awesome. We already recommended it to one of our grand-daughters who has three little children and she loves the huge capacity. 9/16/11
