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.


6 Customer Care Cycles

LG SideKick offers six distinct wash cycles, including a special setting for active wear.


Simultaneous or Independent Operation

LG SideKick saves time by washing two loads at once or get it all done by washing a small load separately.


Raises Your Washer

LG SideKick allows you to easily access laundry for more comfortable loading and unloading in the main washer. Compatible with all new LG Front Load Washers.


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.


Follow the tips below to make sure your LG product will fit in the space intended.

I Love This Washer

MindFields 4/8/2019

This is our first front load washer and we were concerned about purchasing one. A trusted Appliance Repair Tech told us not only is a front loader washer better and more efficient then a top loader but that the LG was a super great washer to buy into. After having the wash now for the past several months we can not agree more with our Appliance Repair Tech This washer does a standard load of cloths in 35 minutes and they come out perfectly clean. Super quite and easy to use The only sad issue is that I see that this washer model is Discontinued? Perhaps its replacement is even better? In conclusion we are very pleased with purchasing this LG Washer

Wonderful washing machine

kat6033 1/1/2019

I purchased my LG WM8100HWA over 2 years ago 11/16 and have been extremely satisfied with its performance. As other reviewers have noted most of the cycles are a little longer than preferred but my cloths come out clean and not beat to death like top loading models. I have used every cycle but the Steam and use the Tub Clean cycle about once a month. I will write another review next year.

SA_Aggie 6/14/2018

I replaced a top load washer with this and now our clothes seem brighter cleaner and softer. The large size is great with young kinds. I love the high temp allergine cycle for bedding which helps with my dust mite allergy. Also a king sized comforter fits My wife particularly loves the hand wash cycle for her home-knitted goods. It is very quiet and easy to operate and the only feature it lacks for us is a reversible door.
