LG washing machines are equipped with a water-level setting so you can adjust the amount of water used to fill the tub before the start of each cycle. This is an efficient and money-saving feature, since it allows you to reduce the amount of water for cleaning smaller laundry loads. The push-button feature changes the water-level setting in seconds.

Step 1

Raise the lid on the LG washer and fill the tub with dirty laundry, no higher than the top row of holes in the tub. Close the lid.
