Home appliances sold under the LG brand are manufactured by a South Korean company LG Electronics Inc. It is a part of the LG Group, that has over 120 subsidiaries worldwide.
Although LG makes both front loaders and top loaders, its most popular product is a front-loading washing machine.

This LG washer has a capacity of 5.2 cu. ft., which is enough even for king-size comforters. This appliance uses steam technology and TurboWash technology, helping to accelerate soaking and rinsing.
