LG Announces Laundry Breakthrough with ‘LG Washtower’ Innovation

Submitted by LG Electronics

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 20, 2020 LG Electronics USA is modernizing laundry with the rollout of the revolutionary LG WashTower™ — the sleek, single-unit laundry solution that takes up half the floor space while tackling ultra-large loads. With an exclusive form factor only from LG, the smartly designed LG WashTower enables consumers to reinvent their laundry room design – and their laundry routine – with convenient controls, built-in intelligence and advanced cleaning. 

LG WashTower offers a full-size dryer above a full-size front-load washer, delivering ultra-large capacity plus advanced washing in under 30 minutes.1 Unlike conventional stacked laundry pairs, LG’s exclusive Center Control™ panel is conveniently positioned in the middle of the unit and displays both washer and dryer controls – putting comfortable access within reach for the very first time. With four models to choose from, LG WashTower is available now at retailers nationwide starting at $2,229.

“Consumers are craving increased satisfaction and efficiency when it comes to mundane chores like laundry – and LG WashTower is the game-changing solution that doesn’t sacrifice best-in-class performance or capacity so you can do laundry better and faster,” said Peggy Ang, head of marketing at LG Electronics USA. “With a style-forward design that takes up half the space, it gives you the freedom to reinvent your laundry space in your own style – whether it’s adding extra storage, folding areas, sinks, pet wash stations or an LG Styler steam closet for the ultimate laundry room.”

All You Want in Half the Space — No Step Stool Needed 

LG WashTower’s single unit design makes the most of space efficiency while adding the benefit of full-size capacity – all with a sleek, streamlined aesthetic. The premium black steel finish, chrome rim and control knob accents (models WKGX201HBAWKEX200HBA) elevate any decor, and the scratch-resistant tempered glass doors are designed to look good for the long haul.

Only LG WashTower has the convenient Center Control panel that’s perfectly positioned with both washer and dryer controls in the middle so it’s easy to reach. Typical stacked washers and dryers place controls at the very top of each machine, making the dryer buttons hard to see and reach without using a step stool. The Center Control also makes WashTower’s height profile 3.4 inches shorter than the brand’s traditional stacked pairs so it can fit into even more places.

Built-in Intelligence Takes Out the Guesswork 

When it comes to doing laundry, one out of two consumers default to the Normal Cycle on their washers and dryers because they simply don’t know which to choose.2 LG WashTower takes out the guesswork with built-in intelligence that uses sensors to detect fabric texture and load size, and then automatically selects the right wash motions, temperatures, and more for precision fabric care.  

And it gets smarter: WashTower will even learn your preferred settings. Simply activate Smart Learnerin the LG ThinQ® app and it will remember your ideal wash temperature, spin speed or dry level. With Smart Pairing™, the washer can even tell the dryer the right compatible drying cycle, making LG WashTower the ultimate laundry hack.

Get It All Done Less Time

Ultra-large capacity fits more clothes in every load and helps you conquer laundry day faster. LG TurboWash™ 360° powers through larger laundry loads in less time, thanks to five jets with variable sprays that deliver a complete clean in under 30 minutes.1  

Peace of Mind Built-In

LG WashTower owners will enjoy greater peace of mind with LG Proactive Customer Care. The industry-first personalized customer support tool provides customized maintenance tips, monthly usage reports to keep appliances performing their best, and alerts that warn of potential issues before they arise – at no additional cost.
