Back clearance needed for washing machine?

I'm looking to buy an LG top load washer, model WT4870CW, but I'm not sure if it's going to fit or if it's too deep. I know the dimensions of the unit, but can anyone tell me what the minimum clearance is it needs from the back of the machine to the back wall? It'll fit if i only need 3 inches, but not if I need 4 inches or more. Thanks.

you need no clearance from wall, you just have to keep in mind the fill hoses and drain hose may keep you from fitting up flush to wall
