Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (4.5 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.


Think you can't do laundry on the go" Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.


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.


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.

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.

Big improvement over my old washer

pslcrz 11/10/2018

This replaces an ancient ~25 year old top loading washer. It is much more efficient from both a water and detergent usage standpoint so we are pleased. The door opening direction does not appear to be changeable so in our laundry room configuration this creates an inconvenience. The digital panel on the upper right which both displays and and enables changes to the cycling settings is not back-lit and is thus very tough to read. These are the only minor drawbacks I have noticed. All in all we are very happy with the unit.

Needs better instructions

Poor instructions 10/27/2018

I have had my washer about two weeks and still am guessing how to get the temperature length of wash etc. correct. It comes out differently every time. There are about two sentences in the book and on line didnt help much either. I must get on my knees to see the lights. The items that light up are so bright they blot out the other choices unless I use a flashlight. Sometimes a wash that I have set as light soil runs for over an hour. There are two ways to mark cold wash and they both do different things. It would be nice to have better instructions and I could enjoy the machine more. There are many instructions on care which seem like overkill. I did not have to do many of these on my old machine and it was over 15 years old and still running well. I needed a dryer so did both at once but hated to see the washer go My average rating could improve if I could figure out how to use it.

Newest model a disappointment

hfrederick 10/15/2018

I loved the 2015 and 2017 versions of this washer and dryer which I used in rentals but the 2018 model we purchased for our new home is a big step backwards. The controls are almost impossible to see compared to the buttons of the previous two models. Instead of a light tap to get the settings you want you have to push hard on what you hope is the right place on the screen and hold it for 3 seconds etc. The washer and dryer have pre-set modes that dont allow the user to change them. This model is all about the industrial designer team and doesnt take the consumer into account at all. Very disappointing to have a great machine that was the best washer Ive ever used now over-designed and focused on a smart app that is just plain silly. I cant believe Im stuck with this when I thought I was ordering something else.

Frank K 10/2/2018

Doing our research we thought this was the best product to purchase. We are disappointed in several areas. The display is black very hard to see when selecting the desired settings. The Machine has missed the rinse spin cycle during the wash cycle on one occasion we have used the machine 5 times we had to figure out how to make the rince spin cycle word. Disappointing. It would be nice if the setting we use would remain the same now we have to reset the setting every time we use the machine. We have another front end loader washing machine it is much easier to operate. We have hade had the machine for 10 years it has never missed a rinse cycle.

Love the machine - hate the controls

Amy S 9/23/2018

We own an LG front-load washer bought in 2010 and love it. So naturally when we needed to replace a failing washer in our second home we went to look at LG front-loaders but had no need for lots of bells and whistles. Unfortunately the best candidate machine on display in late July had been discontinued. This model WM3500CW was presented as the equivalent replacement. Since it was a new model no reviews were yet available and we only got to see it after it was delivered and put into use. Unlike our previous LG this has quirks that REALLY bug me 1. The display is not back-lit so the bright white LED indicator lights make it virtually impossible to read the labels and descriptors. No joke. I have now put a flashlight next to the machine so I can read the display. 2. After a load is run there is a puddle of water that remains in the gasket/seal. I am not talking drips of water. I am talking a puddle. So I also have a towel nearby to wipe dry the gasket after every use. I dont have to do this on my older LG model. 3. If you want to create a custom set of settings to use regularly you can only do it via a phone app while your machine is connected to home wifi. For instance the default temperature setting on normal wash is warm. I prefer to use cold. That means I have to change the temp setting every time I run a normal load...using my flashlight. See #1. On the older model there is the ability to set up a custom setting manually on the machine. Once it is set up you press a single button and the custom setting is triggered. Possibly this is a feature is still available on more expensive models. I dont believe user friendly options should be replaced with connectivity options and touted as an improvement. And oh by the way we dont have wifi in our second home so could never use this smart feature anyhow. 4. I have experienced weird cycle time estimates. For instance the normal wash cycle is usually just under an hour...~56 min. But a few times the displayed estimated cycle time at the start is much longer 1.5+hrs. Nonetheless as the cycle proceeded it turned out to be more like the hour I would have expected. There are a lot of positives to the machine. Handles larger loads nicely and is far gentler on clothes than the top-load options. Im just very annoyed at LG that they appear to have cut corners to bring down the price point and removed features so they can market it as a connected machine.
