Product Reviews
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Futuristic I'm butting in, with my review of this machine's predessor, which I have owned for several years. ILoveIt. The main problem with these "ventless" machines is that one cannot stuff them full and expect a dry load. With mine, I carry-off any big or heavy loads to my friend's regular dryer at the other end of the house. The new one this here apparently vents-off a little bit . . . Just what I'd wanted . . . I take care of that feature on mine by pausing the dry and opening the door from-time-to-time. My machine is in a clothes closet though, not sure I'd want any steam off-the-back of it, and so Really a regularly VENTED unit would be ideal. When do we get THAT? 12/4/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't Dry!!! I bought this for my wife because she only has the use of one arm due to a stroke (cut out the unloading and loading). The first time I used this machine I set it to medium dry it showed the total wash/dry time as 5 1/2 hours! I thought that can't be right but sure enough it took that long. The worst part is the clothes weren't even dry yet. I had a service tech out today to see if there is something wrong with it. Nope that's just how it works (or doesn't work). LG should take this off the market or start advertising it as a Washer/Heater because it isn't a dryer. 1/20/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product I purchased this machine almost a year ago. It has been a life changer for my family and I in a smaller apartment. I hooked it up in the dining room next to the kitchen and connected everything to the kitchen sink. (Cold water and draining hose into sink) This machine is amazing! I wash everything on the cold wash setting with the turbo wash selected. The machine action gets everything washed, every time, no matter how much I pack into it! The dryer works fine if you work it properly. I take out some of the clothes and hang them, set the dryer setting to MORE. 6/19/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Pleased - The Future of Laundry I bought a condo and added a this unit in the corner of my bathroom. Venting was not an option so my choices came down to a stackable set or a combo unit. I already knew that a condensing ventless unit as going to take longer to dry than a vented dryer. Another truth that I have been brought up with is that you should always buy the largest capacity washer you can fit/afford. They have used combo units in Europe for years, and I figured the technology could only have improved since I last used one and ended up hanging my stuff on a drying rack since it didn't really dry. I have had to re-run loads due to mildew and forgetting to transfer to the dryer, so I figured I would give the combo unit a go. I decided to go with LG since lot of people seem to love their LG washers and dryers. The LG makes Asian appliance assurance noises like cute little beeps and playing a little tune when your laundry is finished. There are only two people in my household, and we basically just use the machine as a hamper and run it every 2-3 nights. I pay a flat rate for electricity and water that are included in my condo fees, but every time I've looked at it, I barely see any water, so it doesn't seem to use that much. I cannot speak to its electricity usage. It has been summer, but a typical load is 2-3 days of clothes (including 1 pair of jeans) and a towel. I usually just run it on small load and more dry and 2.5-3 hours later the clothes come out with a fine layer of mist that usually evaporates by the time they are put away. There have been a couple loads (big full towel loads) that have been damp on the way out, but I set them out and they dry quickly. I also clean sheet sets as their own load with extra pillowcases. It cleans great! I have basically adjusted the way I do laundry to the machine, and my life is easier since I'm not always getting behind on laundry. I do about one load a month of linens and towels in the common laundry room on my floor. I thought it would have more dry options- and the 24" one seems to say that it has more options- but I am pleased with the washer/dryer combo so far. I may end up buying the pedestal so that I don't have to bend down as much when cleaning the seal of lint or unloading the machine. One added bonus is that my partner now thinks washing/drying in one drum is the way of the future, and therefore is excited to do laundry. He's always asking if I have any laundry to do so I don't shoulder the burden of doing all the laundry. 8/7/15
