Description

Is It A Washer Or Something Better
It's alright that you expect your washer to do more. It should do a lot more. And if you have this washer, it does. Innovative WaveForce technology to deeply clean fabrics more efficiently. Smart ways to deliver the power of warm water performance with cold water savings. There's a lot more this washer offers... just like you expect.

Wave Series Ultra-Large Capacity High Efficiency Top Load Washer
Just because a washer is tough on dirt and stains doesn't mean it needs to be tougher on your clothes. In this case, it's even more gentle. LG's new Wave Series washer is loaded with some hard-hitting innovations like deep cleaning WaveForce technology. It's also gentler on both your fabrics and your utility bills with smart options like ColdWash.

The hottest thing in cold clean
Now using the cold cycle on your washer doesn't mean compromising how clean your clothes are. ColdWash Technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you the cleaning performance of warm water with the energy savings of cold water.

Smarter in many ways
Saving water doesn't mean compromising cleaning power. At least not when you have the SmartRinse Jet Spray System. It provides better rinsing performance while making more efficient use of water at the same time.

5.2 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity
Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans Go for it. The Ultra-Capacity (5.2 cu. ft.) washer lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That's time saved and sore backs avoided.

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.

Catch the wave
If you thought water had done all it could to clean your clothes, you haven't experienced WaveForce technology. Rapid drum movement and powerful water jets provide outstanding washing and rinsing performance, while staying gentle on clothes.

No rude awakenings
No need to announce to the whole house when one load has come out and another has gone in. The SlamProof Lid is safe, convenient and noise-reducing.

Count on it
When you buy a washer, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

Energy Info

This washer uses 250 kWh/yr and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $27.73.

The estimated yearly operating cost is based on doing 8 laundry loads a week and the 2011 national average electricity cost of $.1109 per kWh. Your operating cost will depend on your utility rates and usage.
