Description
The Perfect Stack Laundry Center Is Now Within Your Reach.
LG's groundbreaking new Control Center Laundry with AdaptAble Controls, gives everyone the option to comfortably stack their washer and dryer. Movable controls allow you to relocate the dryer control panel to the bottom of the unit, putting all of the controls in the center of the pair. That means no more stretching to adjust your dryer cycle. If you choose to place your pair side by side in a more conventional configuration, the controls can easily be moved back to the top of the unit. Thanks to LG, space-saving is no longer a stretch.

Remote Monitor Ready
LG's Remote Monitoring System makes it easier to keep tabs on your laundry. Simply plug the modem into any outlet in your home and it communicates with the machine to display the time remaining in the cycle. Whether you're putting away groceries or relaxing with a good book, you'll know how much time is left. Your repeated trips to the laundry room are over.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what I expected... My new washer & dryer were delivered yesterday, amd I immediately threw in a huge load of sheets & towels. I was somewhat disappointed... it took about an hour to wash. After all the reviews I've read about the clothes coming out of HE washers almost dry after spinning, I was eager to see how dry they really were. They were no drier than they were in my reliable old top-load. The dryer then took over an hour to dry the load. The next load I tried was my son's twin sheets - yuck! I put them in by themselves and set it for a sanitary wash. I soon canceled that when the display read 1 hour, 46 minutes - for just a set of twin sheets! The loads may be a bit bigger than my top-load was, but I'm definitely not going to save any TIME with this washer. When the washer spins it "walks" a few inches across the tile floor, so after each load I have to push it back into place - and its close to 200 lbs. And, although they are the same width as other wahser & dryers, be careful about the DEPTH, including the clearance for vents, etc. These stick out about 4" farther than my old set, which means the back door clears the dryer by less than an inch! 3/5/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product.. Excellent service.. This LG product was a first for my family.. We loved the styling and the ease of use. So far we have done approximately 25 loads of adult and baby clothing (using HE detergent) and everything comes out clean and almost dry! The manufacturerproports that their machine uses very low energy and little water - great for your wallet and good for the environment! My electric bill went down [$]month and I'm sure my water bill do go down as well. For families with children, this machine has a great safety lock out feature, to keep adventurous hands off/out. Another nice feature is the 18 hour wash delay.. I chose to have the LG delivered and installed.. Both prices were an exceptional value. The service guys, had to liftthe machine (over 200 lbs)over the toilet and the vanity and squeeze the machine into place. They ran a full cycle (with 4 towels about 6lbs.) and checked the machine under the highest RPM 1200 and it rocked a little bit. The front legs were adjusted and I can't believe how quiet this machine is even at the highest RPM. Great machine at a reasonable price!! 11/21/07
Rated 5 out of 5 by As good as advertised Though I was somewhat leary of buying this washer (and the accompanying dryer)because of price, unfamiliarity with the LG brand, etc, I'm more than satisfied. I tried to do all my homework but there always seem to be a few people who have problems with any appliance. This has about a dozen settings and though I was concerned that front load washers couldn't soak stained clothes, the cleaning ability of this machine makes that irrelevant. Endless combinations of time/delicacy options are available and though the High Efficiency detergent is never on sale, much less of it is used to get the clothes clean -and it does clean very well. Very happy with both the machines and the service and ability of AJ Madison to work around the details of shipping, setting up and removing the old machines. The control panels can be moved to allow either stacking of the machines or using them side by side. Why has NO ONE else thought of this great feature? Good experience all around. 8/13/07
Rated 1 out of 5 by HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND This washer was great at first, but after three years, it started having smell issues. The seal in the front apparently is a great target for mold, and using standard detergents (non HE) will cause all sorts of mildew and soap residue problems in the inner drum. At this point, I cannot get this smell out with anything I have tried. I have called LG and have followed their recommendations step by step, to no avail. I have tried the tub cleaning feature with the Tide washer odor remover that supposedly remove all smells. Have used Clorox tons of times. Have manually removed all soap residue from the inner drum. NOTHING WORKS. I can imagine many of the modern front loading washers may present this terrible smell problem. Doing the laundry has become a living nightmare. If I want "okay" smelling laundry, I first have to do the tub cleaning with clorox and immediately wash all my clothes. If I don't, or if I forget to pull them out immediately, they will come out smelling like they were stuck in the sewer for years. Under no circumstances, will I ever recommend any front loading machine to my family or friends, or anyone. This product, which we paid a reasonable amount of money for, will soon be replaced for a top loading machine, and that's that. 8/14/12
