Summer means fun in the sun, but it also means hot temperatures and excessive sweating. This translates to a mountain of laundry: sandy beach towels, swimwear, sweaty clothes, and even beddings.

Overwhelming? Definitely. But with a reliable washing machine, it doesn’t have to be.

If you’re on the lookout for a new washing machine, here are four features to consider before making your purchase.

1. Capacity. The capacity of a washing machine refers to how much laundry it can hold in one cycle. If you have a large family or if you regularly wash bulky items like comforters or pillows, a washing machine with a larger capacity is a must-have. But if you live by yourself or have limited space, a smaller capacity washing machine may be more practical.

The good news? You don’t have to compromise when you buy an LG washing machine. That’s because these are designed to carry large loads in a compact chassis.

2. Energy efficiency. Not only are energy-efficient washing machines better for the environment, they can also save you money on your energy bill. Look for washing machines with an Energy Star rating as this means they meet strict energy efficiency guidelines. LG’s Dual Inverter Heat Pump for example, was awarded the Energy Star Most Efficient Mark in 2021 and offers up to 65% energy savings.

Another feature that increases efficiency is LG’s Turbowash, which uses a Jet Spray to get a half-load of your washing clean in 59 minutes. The improved process reduces that time even further, getting your laundry done in just 39 minutes using high-pressure sprays that wash and rinse your clothes more efficiently, while using less water and less energy.

3. Noise level. If your laundry room is located near living spaces or bedrooms, a noisy washing machine can be a major disturbance. Look for washing machines that have a low decibel rating, like those that use LG’s Direct Drive Motor. This is connected to a washing machine tub directly without any belt or pulley, minimizing noise vibrations.

4. Smart features. Smart washing machines offer a range of features that can make laundry day easier and more efficient. LG’s washing machines provide seamless integration with the Smart ThinQ app. The app can diagnose any problems that you might be having with your machine and give you a solution. It also lets you control, schedule, and monitor your laundry cycles remotely through your smartphone in real time.
