Some of the model’s features include;

  • 12 automatic wash cycles ranging from heavy duty to baby wear and 5 different water temperature settings offer versatile options when doing your laundry.
  • 5 Spins speeds allow you to choose the perfect setting for every load.
  • The interior drum is made out of stainless steel, so it will never rust.
  • The cycles can be set up to 18 hours in advance, due to the delayed start function.
  • Child lock protection keeps small hands from tampering with the door.
  • A SmartRinse jet spray system saves water while cleaning.


  • Goodbye long drying sessions. The spin cycle leaves the clothes almost dry.
  • Uses very little detergent, saving you more money.
  • Compared to other top loaders, this model uses much less water and energy.
  • Thanks to the LoDecibel and anti-vibration system, this unit is quiet.
  • This machine determines which optimal temperature setting to use on your laundry for a thorough clean.
  • It is very affordable.
  • A self-diagnosis feature will warn you when there is a problem on the machine.


  • The machine does not have a water level control function. It detects the amount of water needed automatically. Some consumers might find the water level too low.
  • It does not have a hot water cycle.
  • Gets clothes clean, but is not reported to be the best stain remover. Make sure you pre-treat your clothes to get rid of those of hardy stains.


This product received mixed reviews from consumers. It is worth mentioning though that most nay-sayers simply preferred front loaders.
Simply put, if you are looking for a smaller version of LG’s favorite top loader, you can’t go wrong with this model.
