Made for Each Other

The LG SideKick is compatible with all new LG Front Load Washers.


Laundry At the Speed of Life

LG's enhanced TurboWash® technology. Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load, cutting wash time by half-without shortcutting cleaning performance, even on larger loads. That's not just laundry done fast-it's laundry at the speed of life.


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.


Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.


The hottest thing in cold clean

Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn't have to mean compromising. ColdWash technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.


Measure First

You found the LG washer that fits your lifestyle- now make sure it fits in your space. These LG models are larger than typical washers, measure to ensure your purchase can be successfully delivered and installed.

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.

Defective Product

WM8000HVA 7/21/2021

Who would expect a fairly new expensive washer go seriously bad this quickly. Going off balance for no reason or I thought Inner tub bad already? Shock/struts bad already? Very disappointing and upsetting

Terrible Product and Leaks from Day 1

LEGK 4/23/2021

I bought this LG with high expectations. Boy was I wrong I have had multiple problems and service within the first few months which lead to never fixing the problem. Now that my washer is five years and out of warranty the problems are getting worse and worse. This should not be the case as this washer is extremely expensive and currently now leaks after every load from the bottom. I reached out to customer service and they had the nerve to want to charge a service fee and charge even though this was a pre-existing problem before the warranty expiration.I really wanted to love the product but its the complete opposite.

Great product

Earl 86 4/12/2021

My wife and I have used the washer and dryer since 2013 with not a single problem except that some how the dryer and now recently each device got child locked and after getting in contact with your great service staff via telephone the problem was quickly resolved.

Over all Im very happy with this machine

PriscTofte 3/7/2021

Ive owned this washer for many years now. Its a workhorse and holds a large amount of laundry. I wash King sized comforters with zero issue. I use the extra hot sanitizing feature all the time - I love it Two weeks ago I was doing a load and heard the cycle finish. When I went to open the door smoke came billowing out. A repair person came out to assess the issue but thats as far as we have come as we are still waiting to LG to tell us what will happen next.

I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE SERVICE AGREEMENTS FOR THE LG PRODUCTS. I HAD A FIVE YEAR SERVICE AGREEMENT AND THE WASHER AND DRYER NEEDED SERVICE AND IT WAS NOT COVERED FOR THE DRYER. I AM TRULY DISAPPOINTED AND SADDENED FOR THE SERVICE. THE WASHER WAS DONE BUT NOTHING FOR THE DRYER. MONEY WASTED THAT I COULD HAVE USED FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

Doesnt last long

Cs12 12/26/2020

Loved it at first. With a high price point I would have expected it to last beyond 6 years. A part went bad that flooded our laundry room at four years of ownership. Now it constantly leaks from the door and the smell is awful even with wiping it down and doing monthly tub cleanings.

Love all the cycles available. However I am now in the process of replacing it. Although I did buy the same exact one because I do use many of the cycles. Only this time I bought the extended warranty.

The best washing machine I have owned

Bianca S 12/17/2020

The features are great you can adjust the settings on so many levels and the controls were easy to understand. I love how quite it runs and the happy chiming when the load is done. The biggest thing I have washed at home so far is our queen sized comforter and it came out perfect It uses HE laundry detergent which I appreciate. Also I should mention that our house has a dog and I love how clean my clothes are after using this machine Truly the best washing machine I have owned
