We've crunched the numbers, and there's no question that front-loaders are superior to top-loaders in terms of efficiency, cleaning power, and the wear and tear they put on your clothes. Nevertheless, they remain a tough sell for most folks.

We've tested dozens of machines from the Korean giant, and its machines consistently rank among the best to pass through our state-of-the-art labs.

LG knows how to build a great front-loading washing machine, and the WM3770HWA is proof. TurboWash can get clothes clean in just 30 minutes, Sanitize and Allergiene cycles are great for families, and downloadable specialty cycles can tackle any kind of stain. It's also gentle on fragile fabrics. Available in two colors—white or graphite—the WM3770HWA offers fast cycles and great stain removal at a competitive price.

With a steam cycle, a sanitizing wash, and a 5.2 cu. ft. capacity, this giant LG has a unique, sleek look that will class up a laundry room. We were impressed by how much it could fit—and how well it cleaned. Since it's compatible with LG's TwinWash system, you could even do two loads at once. And a 34-minute TurboWash cycle saves time, too. If you've got a lot of laundry to do, this LG will make short work of it.

The LG WM5000HVA boasts some of the company's best laundry technologies. Turbowash allows you to do a normal load of laundry in 30 minutes, while the tilted drum makes it easy to both load the machine and find that last sock afterwards. It has a sleek design and our tests show it’s tough on stains, gentle on clothes, and more efficient to boot. It’s laundry made quicker and less painful—what more could you ask for?
