For Small Spaces with Large Loads

LG's compact washers are designed to save space without compromising capacity. At 2.3 cu. ft., you have the room to get it all done.


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.


Here to help

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 smartphone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.


Measure First, Order Right.

Nothing is more frustrating than an appliance that doesn't fit. We'll help you find the right one for your space.

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.

Horrible Noise and Leaks

The machine leaks water from the seal and sounds like a jet engine. Horrible noise even with stabilizers

Phenomenal little powerhouse

mike44nh 4/21/2022

Our condo doesnt have a lot of space for our laundry machines so we went with this unit and are not the least bit sorry that we did. This little powerhouse handles everything we toss into it with ease and finesse. Its wide array of wash and fabric options in addition to temperature settings make it a breeze to get our laundry done. Its very quiet and even has a pleasant-sounding chime when the cycle is complete. The detergent loading drawer is easy and simple to use. Its quite simple to keep it clean. We have the matching dryer as well and its a champ too We love LG appliances and this washer is at the top of our list.

Worst washer machine ever. Dont buy it.

Jim We 2/9/2022

We bought this washer a few months ago and every time it goes in the spin cycle it makes the whole house vibrate knocking everything off my shelves. It literally feels like you are in getting to take off in the space shuttle and my ears feels like your ears are going to explode. We had a service come out twice and they say their is nothing wrong. I am only giving this a one star because it wont let me do no stars

Handles All of My Laundry Needs

AnnDi 2/1/2022

I bought this washer two and a half months ago to replace my previous LG 24 compact washer because of space constraints. I have no difficulty washing sheets towels and other large loads. Our clothes come out clean. I especially love the selection of settings--handwash

Excellent choice for small spaces

Greenspartan 1/30/2022

We now have had this washer for several months and love it. Great companion to the dual inverter heat pump ventless dryer. Great capacity of its size. Looks great. Performs as advertised. We are very happy with it. The washer and dryer stacked are in a small bathroom. We are very happy with both.

Rattles the whole house

SueJones 1/9/2022

This washer vibrates extremely badly. Yes the shipping bolts are out. Yes we had an authorized repairman visit and he pretty much verified there is nothing particularly wrong...this is just the way these washers are. I have to spin everything on low cycle and the vibration is still very bad and it ups the drying cycle. Never again for a front load or an LG.

Cant get service

Anne58 12/6/2021

Ever since we installed this washer it has been noisy and vibrating. We leveled it every way and I spend a lot of time rearranging and reducing the loads in an effort to stop the noise. Called for service. It has been a month or more...NO SERVICE. They can find no-one in my area. They want to do a video chat or phone call where I am the technician. I have no high speed service internet and Verizon is 1 bar here. These options wont work. I am also 67 with health issues. I dont consider this Service.

Love the compact size.

Pheeph 7/17/2021

We purchased this washer because it was smaller allowing me to reach all the way to the back. And the compact size fits better in our small laundry room.

This Washer Blew My Mind

MarieBuckley 6/8/2021

I had the washer installed in my condo last month and I havent stopped using it. There is a cycle for everything you want to wash. Stains are removed and the washer load comes out smelling fresh. LG makes a great washer
