Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro One of the fastest washers
An 8-pound load running in the 'Normal' cycle cleans very well in just 30 minutes, and lightly soiled clothes can run on 'Speed Wash', a fast 15-min cycle. These speedy cycles mean you finish more laundry with less time.
Pro Gentle on clothes
All cycles, even the "Heavy Duty Steam Cycle' one are very gentle with fabric and does minimal wear and tear on clothes.
Pro Generous capacity
This front-loader has a 4.5 cu.ft stainless steel drum that holds plenty of wash. This means you can do more laundry in less time.
Pro Allows you to easily diagnose a problem
If your washer needs a repair, it can self-diagnose the problem so that repairmen will know which replacement parts to bring. The washer quietly beeps out an error code, you call customer service and hold your phone up to the washer, and customer service will know what the problem is just by listening to the error code.
Pro Excellent against dirt and odor
The WM3770H is one of the few washers that can get hot enough to sanitize clothes without bleach, and it has both pre-wash and steam options which can loosen up stains. You can get excellent cleaning performance even on the "Normal" cycle.
Pro Effectively rids of allergens
"Allergiene" is a steam cycle that reduces dust mite and animal dander like fur and urine, making a pet owner’s life cleaner. These can also be useful for people with suppressed immune systems or severe allergies.
Pro Has cycles that kill bacteria
A strong washing cycle called "Sanitize" kills germs with internally heated (149.3 degrees) water. This is an effective way to kill virus, helpful when a family member gets sick.
Pro Very intuitive to use
This unit has a knob that you turn to select the cycle you want. Each time you turn it, a light and a beep confirms your choice. This eliminates the need to manually press multiple buttons to choose your settings.
Con Relatively complex
The WM3770HWA has more parts than cheaper machines do, which means it has more parts that might get broken and you might need to replace them after a few years.
Con Can be tricky to fix or replace
A recurring complaint is that LG customer service is always too quick to dismiss issues as user error. They always suggest owners to watch educational videos to find a solution to their problems. When the manufacturers eventually send out a technician, they take more than a week to arrive and won't always fix the problem on the first try.
