Laundry At the Speed of Life

Soccer practice. Groceries. Dinner. Dishes. Shouldn't your laundry move as fast as you" Now it can, with LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. Innovation that keeps up with your family calendar" That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.

*Compared to an LG top load washer without TurboWash. Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton / Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8 lb. loads. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.

More room to clean

When it comes to laundry capacity big is good, but bigger is better. Now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load! At 5.2 cu ft of mega capacity, you'll definitely have more room to clean.

Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

This would be our first front loading washing machine. Up until now we used an older top loader that my wife owned for a long time. Once it started making weird noises we decided it was time to get a new pair sooner rather than later. The machine tub is big enough to allow us to wash a duvet couple of pillows and some extra clothes all together. It has load sensing so it will use correct amount of water for the load. The tub is connected to the motor directly with no belts which means machine can do crazy things while washing not just tumble clothes left or right but depending on the load size it can toss literally clothes around in the tub make sure all garments are soaked well by applying a short spin cycle presses clothes against drum sides while spraying water on etc etc. It will let you know how long cycle will take to complete after load sensing and will alert you with the chime not to be mistaken with a ring once it is done. As with all front loaders spin cycle is extremely violent however machine itself does not vibrate as much as older types Ive used back in UK. It has diagnostics capability through what sounds like an old 56K modem which gets sent to LG in case of an issue. Should help with letting you know what might be the cause havent yet had the need to use it so untested. Theres a large number of settings including steam yes its actual steam machine has on-board water heater. It is pretty quiet during load sensing and wash cycles and spin cycle is not loud as such but you can hear it and depending on your floor/house construction even possibly feel it in essence machine vibrates less then the house vibrations it causes. In our house wood which is quite old built sometime in mid 1900s we can definitely feel spin cycle up on the second floor cant hear it though. Anyhow machine is great and definitely happy we got it and the matching dryer.

Very Satisfied

Submitted by AReportingConsumer - 9/22/2017

A lot of thought went into our purchase. We appreciate the upright configurations for ease of effort adding and removing laundry. This machine washes clothes efficiently. We have pretty much stayed within basic settings for our laundry. The multitude of options are interesting but not necessary to get our job done. We also have the matching dryer which is terrific. The overall quality is great. The features are extensive. The ease of use couldnt be simpler. The performance has been as advertised. The style/design is subtlety nice it is a washing machine but an attractive one at that. After one year of ownership it has been a good purchase. The proof will be with time.

The BEST washer Ever

Submitted by SB1200 - 9/22/2017

I purchased the Mega Capacity LG washer with the small washer drawer and the matching dryer in September 2016. I did a lot of research before I purchased the LG set. I was trying to decide to stay with a front loader or go back to a top loader. I can now after 1 year say that this has proven to be one of the best purchases of appliances I have made to date. I want all to know that the speed of the cycles is fantastic the clothes are cleaner and well rinsed in less than half the time of my previous system Top of the line 2007 front loader. There is no stress put on any clothes even the most bulky items. All types of clothes sheets California king duvet covers are never twisted after a wash towels are cleaner than anything we had experienced before. Another real plus is the amount of clothes this machine can handle in each load is awesome and clothes come out really clean with minimal spot treatment. The mini washer drawer is something I was not certain I would use. This has turned out to be such a plus item for us. Swim suits hand wash items lingerie work out clothes even as simple as a pair of pants needed I use this mini machine almost daily. The clothes are just as clean as the large capacity washer. LG really has hit on a fantastic high tech washing and drying experience. LG has really been thorough with making so many different cycles to choose from including the steam sanitize and it is very easy to customize a cycle as well. All the problems of previous front loader with the seal not being good mold not rinsing thoroughly this has all been solved and then some. I am extremely happy with my purchase. I highly recommend

Submitted by LG person - 4/1/2017

I ordered my LG Model WM8100HWA thru Best Buy online on 11/20/16 and it was delivered installed on 11/25/16 this is a replacement for a 7 year old Whirlpool Duet w/Pedestal when the bearings seized washer became so out of balance it exploded sending plastic pieces into my laundry. When my LG washer was delivered installed the delivery/installation crew were somewhat clueless as to the leveling adjustment using the supplied adjustment wrench. I ended up supplying my own open end SnapOn wrench in order for the machine to be leveled on the concrete basement floor. Once the washer was leveled I have not had to adjust it again. I chose not to purchase the Pedestal as I feel this may be part of the reason my other washing machine failed allowed machine to wobble wrack thus causing bearings to wear. In the months to follow I have done countless loads of laundry including King size comforters sheets insulated winter coveralls delicates using all settings of the machine. Although I will agree with some of the previous reviews as to the length of the cycles I have been very pleased with the performance of this washing machine.
