LG's TWINWash mini washers are possibly one of the most exciting advancements in home technology. The Korean manufacturer has created a mini washing machine that can be attached to some LG washing machine models and thus create a set capable of washing two laundry at the same time . The small washing machine can be used for delicate garments, to separate colors or to wash everyday clothes that are not really too dirty. All this with the best LG technology, such as the Inverter Direct Drive Slim motor.
But TWINWash washers cannot work on their own, they need to be attached to a main washing machine. And LG's smart washers are the perfect companions . Its AI motor is capable of detecting the characteristics of the fabric introduced into the washing machine and establishing the optimal movements of the drum for better laundry care. In addition, they are connected washing machines, so we can control them from anywhere.
LG has in its catalog four models of TWINWash mini washing machines, with different capacities and colors . If you have a compatible LG washing machine or are planning to get one, we are going to tell you all the advantages you will get if you decide to install a TWINWash washing machine. In addition, we show you the different models and the characteristics that each one includes.

Two washes at a time to save time
What are we going to achieve by putting a TWINWash mini washing machine on the bottom of my main washing machine? Well, we will be able to do two strains simultaneously . But you may be wondering why you would want to do two highs at the same time.
Well, an example would be to wash delicate garments . In addition to being able to separate them from the "stronger" garments, the LG TWINWash mini washing machine has special programs for delicate garments. In this way, we can take maximum care of delicate materials such as silk, cashmere and intimate clothing.
LG's TWINWash Mini Washing Machine is also perfect for washing white garments and separating it from colored clothes . Or we can also wash clothes of the day or of the gym , which really are not too dirty, so as not to have to use the large drum of the main washing machine.
To get a complete washing machine into such a small space, LG has used the new Direct Drive Slim motor , a much smaller version of its well-known Direct Drive motor. Despite reducing its size, the manufacturer maintains a 10-year warranty on the motor. A clear proof of the confidence the manufacturer has in its technology.
LG TWINWash washers have eleven different programs , designed for the most common uses that we can give this small washing machine.
On the other hand, the new models also include LG's ThinQ technology . Through the SmartThinQ application we can remotely control the TWINWash washing machine and schedule cleaning from anywhere thanks to its WiFi connection. In addition, the washers have a self-diagnosis system, capable of informing the technical service of a possible fault.
TWINWash washing machine with LG smart washing machine, the perfect combination
As we anticipated before, LG TWINWash washing machines cannot work alone, it is necessary to combine them with one of the compatible washing machine models. But luckily, almost the entire range of LG smart washers are compatible with TWINWash mini washers .
What does it mean that a washing machine is smart? Well, they are equipped with a powerful Artificial Intelligence system. A system that acts mainly on the engine. These washers include a motor called AI Direct Drive , capable of detecting the characteristics of the fabric introduced into the washing machine and establishing the optimal movements of the drum for better laundry care.
The AI Direct Drive motor is able to detect the weight of the garments and the characteristics of the fabric through its hardness. Using a big data system, it combines both values to choose the optimal washing patterns, thus achieving a more efficient washing with greater care for the garments. LG's new smart washers have a database of 20,000 patterns to find the perfect match for each garment.
All this translates into 18% less wear and tear on clothing , which will allow us to keep the garments perfect for much longer.
Along with the intelligent AI Direct Drive motor, the new LG washing machines include a set of systems designed to take maximum care of our clothes and achieve a more efficient wash in all aspects.
For example, some models feature the TurboWash360 system , capable of reducing wash time to just 39 minutes. For this, four water sprays are used that cover the 360º of the drum. Reducing the washing time also reduces wear and tear on clothes (16%) and saves energy (39%), something that we will notice on the electricity bill.
In addition, most models are equipped with Steam + technology , which eliminates 99.9% of allergens, such as dust mites that can cause allergies or respiratory problems. This system uses steam to, in addition to making clothes allergy-proof, reduce 30% of wrinkles and thus facilitate ironing.
On the other hand, as with TWINWash washers, LG's smart washers have the ThinQ system . This will allow us to control our washing machine from anywhere thanks to its WiFi connection and the SmartThinQ application. Through this application we can download additional programs and schedule the laundry so that it is ready when we get home.
In addition, the new LG washing machines are compatible with smart speakers . Soon we will be able to use the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to control some aspects of the washing machine through voice commands.
And not only that, they have a self-diagnosis system that will allow us to save time and money if we have a problem with our washing machine. It will be the application itself that sends the diagnosis to the technicians so that they can know exactly where the problem is.
