The main LG WM5000HVA unit has a 4.5 cubic ft drum which has a myriad of cycles to choose from. The cycles are quick, taking only approximately 40 minutes for a normal cycle and 80 minutes for a heavy duty cycle. The smaller WD100CV washer has a 1 cubic ft capacity and can work independently from the bigger machine. You can put brightly colored or fragile items separately here to prevent damaging them or the rest of the laundry. Things like cloth diapers can also be washed separately from the rest of the laundry. See More
The doors are very large, which helps make the loading and unloading process easier. In addition, the drum is slightly tilted so it is easier to see and reach the back of the drum. This puts less pressure on your back and minimizes the risk of you forgetting something in the washer. See More
Since this machine can both automatically wash and dry your clothes without your intervention, you can leave it to do full laundry cycles while you sleep. You won't even be disturbed by the sound of the machine running since it has special sensors that detect vibration and, based on their readings, slows down the drum to allow the load to settle out if needed. Also, sound signals are automatically disabled, so you won’t get woken up unexpectedly. See More
Like with most combo units, it takes a long time to finish a complete cycle from dirty laundry to ready-to-wear clothes. It can take as long as 4 hours for just one load, as it adjusts the time automatically based on how filled the machine is. On the other hand, you don’t need to transfer the wet laundry from the washer to a dryer. See More
This is one of the most complete washer/dryer units available today. While other similar appliances only include the basic washing and drying settings, this unit offers many options. It has 14 different washer cycles and lets you control the temperature and soil level. When it comes to drying, it has various cycles and allows you to set the temperature and drying level: this way, you can safely dry a variety of materials. See More
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. See More
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.
