Get it All Done In Less Time

Ultra-large capacity (4.3 cu.ft.) means you have the room to do more laundry in fewer loads.


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.


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.


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.

Very quiet washer.

marcus2327 9/6/2018

This is a very quiet washer. It does not use a lot of water cleans clothes evenly. Because it is front loaded I must remember to wipe rubber gasket around the door and keep the door open after each use to avoid moisture build up.

tomyanc 9/6/2018

Installed 2 weeks ago. Works well quieter than last machine. Cycle runs 25 longer time to do a load in cold wash. But does a good job. Got at good price at the blue store discontinued model for them. It had majority of good reviews 80+.

Cleans well less fussy funny smell?

Birds OfFire 8/28/2018

This seems to be a better designed product than my previous washing machine. The grit filter can be cleaned without having to remove the front kick plate. The direct drive agitator motor is set an a slight angle that prevents clothes from becoming stuck in the door seal. It seems quieter than my old washer and it is more difficult to get an unbalanced load error than my old washer. - Only one thing that bothers me there is a smell of overheated electronics parts that comes from inside the door. Doesnt happen every time but some loads have the Im an electronic component and Im about to catch fire smell.

Happy with the washer

kingle 7/16/2018

Its hard to get excited about a washing machine. Its a washing machine. The controls and use of this machine are straight forward and easy to use. The dispensers are easy to fill and use the various settings make sense and the filter - trap is easy to access. The last LG worked great for 12-13 years. I hope to get the same long reliable life from this unit. BTW -- the wife has not noticed or commented on the 4.3 cubic feet versus 4.5 on the old unite.

Great new washer

Remy27 7/10/2018

Bought this washer on sale at Lowes and got a great price. Purchased to replace an LG front load washer we had for about 11 years and needed something to stack under an existing LG dryer. This WM3080 really gets the clothes clean. Only had it for three weeks but very pleased so far.

Thrilled

Jimbo47 7/5/2018

We were limping along with an old top-loader that would only spin on one cycle and not very well. When it stopped doing that we were in a bind since we live on an island 13 miles off the midcoast of Maine and we had 6 grandchildren scheduled to visit by the weekend. Fortunately we were able to find the LG front-loader at a great price at Lowes on a Monday and a friend had a pick-up on the mainland the next day help with delivery. It is terrific Very low water use which is mostly a concern because of the cost of electricity on the island for heating water very quiet and the clothes come out nearly dry. I wish I had a video to send of us ages 67 and 70 getting it out of a pick-up down a hill and into our house. All went well and we remembered to remove the four packing bolts

Quiet cycles

stbeaners 6/27/2018

We love the easy to clean detergent tray and that once the cycle begins we can barely hear it in the next room. The only less than stellar part of the washer is that when you put some loads on the heavy wash loads can take up to an hour and 45 minutes. We havent figured out a way to reduce that time for those selections. Other than that though it has been a great machine

Front load washer 4.3

NJJ1715 6/25/2018

I have had my washer for a few weeks. Every time I wash towels or sheets the machine starts thumping. I know the instructions say to stop the machine and redistribute the items but come on. I shouldnt have to do that with every load. And I am not overloading. I have service coming out in a few days. I replaced a similar LG washer that never had this issue
