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.


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.

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.

LG washer WM8100

Magna 8/7/2018

I bought this LG washer a few weeks ago for its quality and capacity and to have a front loader to save water . As the other LG model was a little less expensive and smaller I thought in this investment to buy the larger capacity one since I was already spending quit a chunk of money as I was buying also at the same time the LG dryer as well. I wanted to be able to wash larger items at home and not having to go to the laundrymat just for large items like king size bed comforter cover and king size mattress cover and such. The machine is very quit very powerful have lots of different washing programs easy to use and look just great . I am very happy with it .

Sunshine53 7/28/2018

We had our last LG front load largest at the time of purchase for nine years. After having it repaired several times our children were living with us we decided to purchase a new and larger one now that we are empty nesters. This one has more options than the last one. I especially like the Allergens feature as my husband and I suffer from allergies. Although we havent used all of the options Im happy knowing they are installed on this machine.

First LG purchase

First time LG owner 7/18/2018

Purchased our first LG washing machine and so far so good as far as the clothes getting cleaned. My downfall with the machine - cant figure out why LG did not think to light up the front panel on the bottom where it says to add garments wash temp and more. It is very dark and unreadable. Another issue- when a wash cycle is complete there is water in the blue main wash liquid detergent compartment and there water in the softener compartment. Cant figure this one out. There should be no water at all.

MamaBear19 6/25/2018

What an upgrade this has been. Not only is this set ease on the eyes but it is easy to use and Im not sure what it says about me but I truly do enjoy doing laundry with these machines. The capacity size allows for much larger and thus fewer loads and when they are finished washing/drying they sing the sweetest little song to let you know. There are features I havent gotten to test out yet but I highly recommend this set - Love love love it

I guess I wont be in the drawing for the $500. The reasons why I purchased your product was for the steam stain remover and the Turbo wash. I give the steam option 1 star and the Turbo a 0. It takes 1 1/2 hours. You have to be an IT expert to change the options to make it work and I have been making computerized machines work in surgery for 30 years.

Better then a new car...almost

LUVVITO 11/3/2017

Purchased the set with pedestals with sidekick almost one month ago. I had wanted this set for over a year and finally was able to purchase. LG makes an incredible product. The set is good looking and remarkably quiet to the point I keep checking to see if its running. Its Star rating for energy is one of the highest for efficiency I have seen. It does a multitude of tasks from bright whites to small loads. It can handle a large amount of volume I purchased the mega wash/dry so your dry cleaning bills may become close to non-existent as mine has. I use the Sidekick for delicate/hand wash items and am still amazed I can use it simultaneously while the main washer is running. The dryer is efficient and quiet and has a catchy upbeat tune to let you know how the drying is progressing or finished. I look forward to using them and do on a daily basis so there is no pile up. The task is done in no time. So glad I made this purchase

Awesome Machine: I highly recommend it

Happyworkingwife 9/24/2017

I bought this machine 5 months ago. I am so pleased with this washing machine. I had a top loader before and I can never go back to that. This mega front load washer is so guiet and easy to use. I love this machine. The loads are done quickly even if you dont use the turbo speed because of the load sensing technology. I use less detergent the clothes is cleaner and fresher and it used less water. The internal heater helps the white clothes be brighter. I didnt buy the pedestal my husband built a metal pedestal post to position the washer and dryer to my height so that I dont have to bend to do take the laundry in and out. It used to take my two full days and a trip to the local laundry mat to wash but now Im done in six hours and I stay home. So happy I get my weekend back.
