Best LG Washer Buying Guide
Like many rooms in your house, you want your laundry room to be as attractive as it is functional. Luckily, LG washers come in a variety of finishes and types from turbo-wash front loaders to large capacity top load washers. Not all models are created equal and will differ slightly between width and depth.
Often the type of washer you purchase will depend on the amount of space and hookups available in your laundry room. Before you decide on a unit, make sure you have enough forward space to open your front load washing machine doors, and if you choose a top loading washing machine, clear the area above the unit of any cabinetry or obstruction. As a general rule, two feet of space on either side should be enough room for whatever LG washer you choose.
How To Pick The Right Size LG Washer
The average width of both a washer and dryer is 27 inches. If you plan on putting them side by side, you will need a minimum of 54 inches. The height of your LG washer will depend if you purchase a stackable unit, a pedestal washer or place it flush on the floor. LG washing machines also range in depths from 28-34 inches depending if they are mega capacity or large capacity.
The following types are available at Sam's Club in finishes from black stainless steel, graphite steel to smooth white.

The average life expectancy of a new washing machine is between 12-14 years. The life of large load washing machines or gas dryers depends on how often you use it and if you run large capacity or small capacity loads.
What Types of LG Washers Can I Choose From?
The new LG TWINWash has two washers in one, so tackling two wash cycles of laundry at the same time is no big deal. The main LG front loading washer handles mega capacity jobs, while the LG SideKick is ready down below to take on any small extra loads.
LG Sidekick Pedestal Washers
Both sleek and efficient, the LG SideKick doubles as both a pedestal to raise your front loading washer and also a small capacity washer that holds up to four pounds of laundry.
Front Load Washers
These washers allow users to load their clothes through a door in the front. This type of machine is best for those who are not able to have top load washing machines, due to space requirements that may exist directly above the machines. Many people prefer the front load washers to top load washers because they use less water, reduce energy consumption can be stackable.
Top Load Washers
These washing machines are loaded through a door on the top of the appliance. Typically these machines are more convenient since you don't have to bend over to load and unload clothes. Top loader washing machines have other qualities, such as the ability to add clothes in mid-cycle, steam functions and come as high-efficiency units which use less water than traditional top load washers.
A washer dryer combo is a single appliance that combines a front loader washing machine and condenser dryer into one unit. They are not stackable and are generally the same size as a stand-alone washer.
