Best replacement for my condo.

Bev17 6/7/2019

Live in 55 and over condo and I was unable to open of the stackable unit due shoulder problems...also too high. The size was perfect the designated area. I love that the controls are at perfect height. I had NO instructions on use of the unit...the company I purchased from is family owned and been in business manymany years. Technician came ...no help. He called your factory without help. My first problem was the clothes were so HOT at the end of the cycle I could not touch them....no one had an answer...I now leave door open to the laundry area and it is better. I cannot set the spin on permanent press on lo or medium speed...and high spin is loud and shakes hard. Slacks and blouses that have been washed and dried before ..no wrinkles...now many are wrinkled. I am mainly concerned No help...they donot seem to know enough about the washer/dryer. Overall I will keep working and solve my by myself because I like the concept.

Works for us

Kleisha 5/31/2019

Im glad I bought this. I was hesitant because some people complained their clothes didnt dry. I didnt have that problem whatsoever. I live in the hot dry desert Tucson AZ so maybe that helps? I also make sure to remove the lint after every wash. It does take longer for laundry. Approximately 3.5 hours per load average. I just make sure to stay on top of it. Its definitely dries faster than the clothesline I had been using and Is more pleasant to use then lugging clothes to the laundry mat. It both cleans and dries clothes well for me.

Great space saver

sue419 5/31/2019

From a traditional two machine history this combo machine does not meet my expectations. I do not like one load to take 2 - 3 hours to complete. Clothes still come out damp even after adding additional drying time. There is a learning curve. I do like the fact that space is saved with one machine.

Great option for small spaces

Zeus7 5/5/2019

Great option for small spaces but make sure you have a sturdy floor because the vibrations are intense. For us living in a third floor condo unit makes it really hard to let it spin the way it should because the whole building shakes. If we were on a bottom floor or if we could reinforce the floor it sits on it may lessen the vibrations but for now we will deal with it. I just wont spin on extra high. Overall this has been a great option and meets our needs. Yes it takes a long time to dry but ill take that over lack of space any time. The washer cycle is fast and our clothes come out nice and clean I complain about cleaning the lint from the dryer cycle. Its hard to wipe it off and I wish it was easier to collect. I dont mind wiping it if I figured out what to use instead. I do my best but somehow theres still some lint trapped. My husband complains about the heat vent. It is right behind the cold water inlet causing condensation on the cold water pipe. Avoid putting this washer in a humid environment because it may add to the condensation problem. If you dont use the spin feature for drying it gets really hot.

Certainly Different

Joe054 4/29/2019

My wife and I purchase this washer and dryer combo back in 2/19 at our local Lowes unfortunately it was on back order for a month so we didnt get it delivered until 3/19 so we where a little upset but it was really worth the wait. This combo is really extraordinary with all of the unique features. What we love about it is you put your items in to wash set which wash and dry cycle you want add detergent and fabric softener press start button leave to go out return and your items are completely done. No more having two appliances where you have to move items from washer to dryer. Also what I like about was the setup just hook it up the way you would a washer no special dryer outlet or plug attachment and no dryer hose or vent to install.

Its great for single use

Hyde29 4/11/2019

Its a good machine however not the best for large households or people that dont take the time to operate the machine properly. Since its a washer dryer all in one preventive maintenance is needed often. To wash dry a load takes much much longer than your standard front load machines. If you need to do more than one load at a time definitely not the best choice for you.

Great for small spaces

sc151535 4/6/2019

I purchased this all-in-one washer/dryer combo about 6 months ago and think its great I primarily wanted a space-saving solution for a small laundry area and this ended up being perfect without sacrificing efficiency. I knew from some online research that smaller loads of similar items were best prior to my first wash but it still took some a couple loads to figure out the sweet spot during my first few washes jeans would be extremely wrung out and shirts would be wrinkly. Now that I have a feel for it its not a problem any more. It does take a little longer but you also dont need to worry about moving clothes over to the dryer in between you can set it and forget it. I didnt quite know what to expect with a ventless drying system but it seems to work great. Its a bit humid when you open the door so the clothes seem damp but once the air is released and you pull it out you realize its dry. I clean the gasket after every load Ive found it easiest to use a wet wipe or a damp cleaning cloth to run around it and pick up all the lint and the drain pump filter every month and things seem to be working smoothly. I should note that I live in a two-person household so were probably not doing as much laundry as a family probably would smaller loads arent a problem.

Wanted to really love this and when it works its great. I have just replaced my 4th drain pump in 3 years.

Love this

Shanda Lear 4/3/2019

We bought our set almost 2 years ago and for the most part we really appreciate it. It does take some getting used to and figuring out what works best for your clothes. I see a lot of people who are upset because the clothes are damp when they come out but that dries quickly and usually works best as far as wrinkles. Smoothing the material out removes the majority of them and hanging the clothes for a few minutes works as well. It requires very little detergent and fabric softener is un necessary. If they could just make a drain pump that lasts more than a year this would be a 5 star piece of equipment.

Happy LG Customer since the new LG Direct Drive

futurist 3/17/2019

LG 4.3-cu ft Ventless Combination Washer and Dryer with Steam Cycle MODEL:WM3997HA Ive been a happy LG customer since the introduction of the LG Direct Drive washers. Over the years we have had several LG washers and dryer sets due to your coming out with the red sets that have worked great. My favorite dryer feature is the Wrinkle Guard button. Since Ive been a long time LG fan I was excited when I saw that LG had come out with another innovative product the LG Washer / Dryer machine. I expected that a corporation that makes heat pumps seeing the opportunity to incorporate heat pump technology into a laundry dryer machine would be awesome. Unfortunately Ive been very disappointed with this machine. No Wrinkle Guard button: Disappointment began when I saw that there wasnt a Wrinkle Guard button among the plethora of multitudinous buttons. Theoretically this machine has wrinkle guard if you hold the button down for three seconds this does not work. The setting will engage but it does not function as a wrinkle guard. The machine tumbles but the interior is so hot that it just irons the wrinkles into the laundry. Even towels come out very wrinkled and they also smell bad sort of like melted plastic. No lint filter: Where does the lint go? It accumulates on the gasket around the inside of the door. Not a handy thing if you are trying to remove laundry quickly so it wont wrinkle any worse. If you dont wipe the gasket off before removing the laundry the lint will attach to the laundry as you are trying to quickly remove it before it wrinkles. Balance: True BalanceAnti Vibration System. Although we have adjusted the feet multiple times the machine continues to bang loudly when it starts to spin. The machine is on a cement floor so the floor isnt the issue. Sometimes it bounces around so much we wonder if well have to chase it down the street. Noise: There is a very annoying continuous high pitch whine the whole time the machine is running. Settings: Ive tried numerous settings trying to get it to work but so far no. Towels done on the Towel setting come out smelling bad due to excessive heat as well as wrinkled and damp. Energy Saving: I cant understand how this machine could possibly save energy when the cycles take so long to run. Six hours to wash and dry is a long time for a machine to run. This new LG machine is not the time saving innovative machine that I was expecting it to be. I have finally gone to setting the water temp on tap spin wont go below high soil is usually medium and the dry temp Wow. Temp is a very big problem. Its almost impossible to get to the LOW setting and even if you get the setting to show LOW the laundry still comes out hot. I am now taking the laundry out while its damp and hanging up it to dry. The concept is a good one unfortunately the implementation is very bad. I hope that when the LG Engineers come up with the new software or hardware that is needed to make this the awesome machine that it could be that they will provide the update to their customers as a warranty repair.

I purchased this combined washer/dryer to gain extra space to add additional water treatment equipment in our home. That mission was successful. The machine worked well for several months but then abruptly would not drain water. We had to replace a pump on a machine that was not a year old. My bad for purchasing a scratch and dent machine:

Would not buy

Stupedme 2/9/2019

Have owned it since 3/16. There was a learning curve thought we could live with it. With in the year it would not start up when pushing the start button. Tried many one line technologies to start it and some worked for a time or two. If we let it set for a few months unplugged we could some times get it to start and then it would work for 5-10 cycles and then go on vacation again. It can only dry a very small load and some cottons just wont dry. I t was just easier to go to the basement and use the old washer and dryer.

Love the compact nature

DJKS 2/2/2019

Purchased this to save space and to see if it would be a good option in a future tiny home. I dont love it. The lint is a problem I generally have to vacuum it off of the door and seal between each use and the drain will clog and rather than a reminder to clean the filter before using the machine an error message pops up half way through the cycle at which point it is tough to clean the filter without flooding the room. I feel like the clean is as good as my separate LG washer/dryers. I miss the fluffy feature of an air dryer. For what it is it works well its just very different.

When it is -35 below you learn your machine :

The Box 2/1/2019

We had this unit for 2 weeks and we just finished our small cabin in the Great State of MN.. We researched this product because of our small foot print at the cabin.We are happywe moved the drain down to help with the water extraction and it worked. During the wash/dry cycle when it changes to the dry cycle we open the draining tube to remove excess water. Thus the items come out dry But the sweet news the issue with the lint in the door gasket really a pain to clean out if hot or cold. So as we are finishing the tile work and using a tile sponge I assisted my wife by cutting a 1x4 section to help her gather the lint.It was amazing ... she could clean the inner / outer parts of the gasket with ease. So give this a try for the lint Closing this machine is not your moms or grandmothers machine you have to think outside the box and understand it

Solid machine but not perfect.

RED25 1/24/2019

We have owned this LG washer/dryer combo for 6 months now. We have the LG stand and not the sidekick. We love the larger capacity the space savings and convenience of this combo machine. The cost of this machine is the same as buying a quality washer dryer but that was expected as this machine does both. There is no vent requirement so the machine can be placed almost anywhere. Our only real complaint is that there is no dedicated lint trap. The lint collects around the opening of the machine along the rubber seal and is a pain to clean off. We have tried when the lint is damp and when it has dried still a pain to collect from the rubber surface. If you do not clean it periodically some of the lint will end up on your clothes. If LG could solve this issue it would make this a great product.

sunshinecountry 1/21/2019

This machine more than meets my expectations. Have washed/ dried multiple types of laundry. Takes about 3 hours to do a load. My only challenge is the length of tubing for draining the filter. All the pics I have seen shows the tubing to be about 12-15 inches. Can only pull mine out about 6 inches. Not sure why.

Love this washer.

joes51 1/21/2019

I bought this after having a top loader built in 1995 and after taking it apart to scrap discovered it was a fire waiting to happen lint everywhere. Good riddance. I disagree with the drain recommendations . I went straight down to a drain from the machine and it highly improved drying and humidity issues. I also pipe wrapped the cold water inlet above the vent and that stopped condensation. Like all front loaders keeping it clean and dry is a must. I have had no issues with smell. A little pricey but the I didnt have much choice with the room I had. I think I made a great choice.

Great machine

Pam4912 1/15/2019

I am really glad I bought this all in one. I did a lot of research and knew that I was going to have a learning curve. This is different than ordinary washers. It does take longer to dry but I was prepared for that. It does a great job I can wash heavy rugs as well as dedicates. I wanted a smaller foot print and it has worked very well for me.

Ventless Drying

Washndry 1/4/2019

I bought this two months ago as I live in a condo and needed a ventless dryer but wanted a full size washer and dryer but did not have space for both. This machine provided my solution. It does do a very good job of washing and drying as long as you dont put to large of a load for drying. I can wash and dry a decent size load with no problems. I also love the fact that I dont have to get down on my knees to get clothes out of a stackable.

Love it

LeaAnn6 1/2/2019

I love virtually everything about it I put the clothes in dirty and a couple of hours later take them out clean and dry. It does everything but fold them and put them away. I also love the lighted tub and the little song that plays when it finishes.

If you are looking for a washer it is perfect. The dryer part is not working for me. The clothes come out damp and wrinkled.

Works great but...

Djaytch99 12/31/2018

We bought this machine about 3 weeks ago and after installation which was straightforward we did a few washes a came to the conclusion that it would work well for us. The trick is to experiment to find the options which work best for your usage patterns. We are 3 adults in an apartment and with its minimal footprint has enabled us to open up the rest of the area for storage. Unfortunately we have a machine which for no apparent reason leaks water from the left hand side. What is weird is that it is not during a wash cycle but in one instance after 3 days of inactivity. I do note that some of these reviews mention the drain hose needs to be at a low level otherwise water cannot be efficiently expelled. I confess I did not see that in the install notes but maybe it has something to do with the leaks. SO we called Costco and they are replacing the unit - thanks Costco - and we hope to report the end of the troubles in a future post.

compact design. all in one

riannom 12/28/2018

I live in a small condo so space is at a premium. This washer/dryer combo saved me some much needed headroom and I could put stacking cubes above it to take advantage of the space freed up by my previous laundry center. Pros: wash and dry without having to change machines I can put laundry in it and come back later in the day to find it dry and ready to stow away. It also is ventless it does vent a bit of heat but doesnt require a dryer exhaust pipe. Cons: it takes a lot longer. maybe 3-3.5 hours for wash and dry cycle. I also cant wash a batch and dry a batch simultaneously like I could with a separate washer and dryer. I knew a lot of these things going into the purchase as I had done a lot of reading on the Internet so knowing this I am perfectly fine with this purchase. My hope is that it lasts a long time but I guess Ill find that out along its lifetime...

Space saver. Not much plumbing required

KiranK 12/22/2018

This unit has all required Settings for a light soiled to heavy soiled cloths. The installation took less than 2hrs. As there is no separate drying unit this saves lot of space. Dryer is working fine as long as the drum is not filled fully. 5shirts 3 pants and inner wear took around 3hrs of total wash and dry cycle. Over all happy with the outcome so far.

Uncomplicated Purchase

JJ2001 12/21/2018

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and am not sure I prefer it over the traditional washer and dryer 2 separate pieces I think i have just about figured out the wash cycles but No Where NEAR figuring out the drying process It runs Forever and clothes are STILL not dry And I Do use the spin cycle as directed in the manual. I have started just timing the dryer and hanging the clothes up in the house to finish drying It also leaves lint on dark clothes even though I DO separate them During the first week I tried live chatting to get some advice but both people I talked with seemed to have No Clue what I was even referring to For the price and aggravation of trying to figure this thing out I almost wish I had kept my old washer and just had the heating element replaced in my old dryer Its nice but I guess its just not what I expected

The future of washers and dryers

mommatronz 12/18/2018

I bought this a month ago and after I had to call LG the first week to get them to hook up the heater on the dryer not uncommon problem when shipped from Korea I have loved this washer and dryer combo. It drys clothes great. You can put in a load set washing functions and drying functions and in 2.5 hrs you come home to completely dry fluffy towels. Now you will say that is too long but most washing machines would take 50 minutes to wash and at least 45 minutes to dry and you have to stay home to make sure that the towels are put in the dryer. Small loads wash from 20 to 35 minutes and drying time is about the same. No more planning for a large footprint for your washer and dryer.

Dryer does not dry clothes

SusieQ1950 12/15/2018

I purchased the unit and it was delivered a week ago. I ran a normal load of towels divided the load in two for drying purposes and still had to hang the towels on a drying rack to finish drying after several drying cycles were also run. I am totally disenchanted with the product and unfortunately the salesperson did not have very much of a performance history to advise accordingly. I believed in the reputation of the manufacturer. What a mistake that turned out to be.

Nice Machine for Small Spaces

Turtle Lady 12/12/2018

I decided to try this machine combo because of its capacity and its ability to fit into a small area the fact that it is vent-less and it uses a regular 120 outlet. Theres a big learning curve for those of us who are used to the conventional dryer however. Patience is the key. Let the machine run its cycles. I wanted to get it to dry sooner than the machine that gauges its cycles by weight etc wanted to but it would never be dry. Once I learned to be patient and trust this smart machine I discovered the dry clothes in and dry clean clothes out marvel.

Great machine

User frendly 12/11/2018

I cant believe what people are negatively writing about this machine. All of the negative reviews are from people who cant figure out how to use Ive used economy washers and dryers which took up to 45 minutes to dry jeans towels going to the laundry mat takes about 35 minutes to dry. Let me walk you through the process on using this machine. The big round knob selects the wash cycle. Thats straight forward. Next there are 4 rectangular buttons under the display panel. The second button controls spin speed. Push and push until display panel shows extra high. Youve already added soap etc. Push start. OK. Never do wash/dry.....wash /dry.... wash/dry cycles. Always wash everything first then start your drying. Why? Two reasons. When you take your first load out hang it up which starts the drying process. Once I had the opportunity to hang it outdoors saved electricity and smelled good too But heres the kicker. Before you take the load out select a second spin ....twist the dial to the right until it selects now I hang t shirts wash clothes on the shower caddy-no need to dry them towels over the curtain rod. I wash jeans first because I will put them on Top of the machine while the first load is drying. The dryer tumbler case will get hot during the drying cycle aiding in the drying process.

Convenient for 1-2 people

Shejo 12/10/2018

I am happy with my purchase for the most part. Its so convenient to put the load in the washer and not have to worry about switching it to the dryer. The ventless feature enabled us to put it on the main floor in a linen closet and not have to install a vent pipe. The lint collects in the doorway of the machine and must be wiped out with a damp sponge after each dryer load. However the clothes are very hot when the machine is done. If items are not taken out immediately everything is very wrinkled. I also learned not to wash bulking items pillows and comforters because they cause the machine to go off line. These items never really dried.

Inefficient waste of time and MONEY

Marcyaco 12/4/2018

Moved into an apartment downtown Pittsburgh as a student who works a job at a restaurant I do about 2 loads a week. This washer/drier combo takes roughly 6 hours to wash and dry... and dry I use loosely... it leaves everything damp and wrinkled... I need to press my t-shirts... not to mention no vent means the lint just tumbled around with the clothes.. you have to wipe the drum door and gasket out before you do another load.. I DO NOT have that kind of time.. Ive reverted to lugging my laundry to my university and doing it in the residence hall...

LG Front loader washer/dryer combo

Pamela Jean 12/2/2018

Prototype Colossal Failure Washer Gasket rubber seal collects lint traps dirt accumulates a grey slime impossible to clean smells up our Master Bedroom needs to be left open to attempt to diffuse horrendous smells. Only used minimally over 3 years. Dryer is laughable. It could take 4 hours to slightly dry clothes then need to hang dry. I refuse to put clothes in yo clean as they come out smelling putrid. I called LG customer service nice guy told me to use tub-clean product 3 Xs back to back as maintaince Or replace gasket. NOT what I have in mind for the future EVER I want my $ back.Glad I purchased a 5 year extended warranty...as it was a new concept product. Hoping one way or another to get rid of this product. I Had to revert to using my old. 18 year old top-loader washer which still operates stellar after raising 4 teenagers 2 adults more many years.

So convenient

CynC 11/26/2018

I put this washer/dryer in a pantry area near the kitchen and family room. Formerly I had to go to the basement to do laundry. Installation was easy. The appliance wall backed up to the 1/2 bath sink and toilet. My favorite part is that you dont need to change the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer. Its quiet and done with one setting. A friend bought one for her aunt who lives in an historic apartment building after seeing that the dryer didnt need to have an exhaust. Innovation is a wonderful thing.

Efficient

Christiffer 11/23/2018

Been using the LG washer/dryer all-in-one combo for a few weeks. Works like it should and is super quiet. Due to the nature of condensing dryers it does take a bit longer to dry but the trade off is a no brainer. Super energy efficient energy guide says ~$13 per year space saving and one-n-done put dirty clothes in get clean dry clothes out. We needed the space savings. Had a stackable W/D. Now just having the all-in-one I am building shelves above the unit that was previously taken up by the stacked dryer. We needed more shelf space for our smaller home. This combo unit fit the bill. There should be a push to get more combo units here in the US
