Product Description

Please Note: The Washer/Dryer Combo takes up to 6 hours to wash and dry your clothing

Is It A Washer? Or Something Better?
This combination washer/dryer is perfect if you don't have an external venting source, which conventional dryers require, and it runs on standard voltage electricity. Although it is a space-efficient laundry solution, ideal for locations where a separate washer and dryer wouldn't fit, the full-size tub (3.6 cu. ft.) means you won't be compromising on washing capacity.

Wash in peace
You shouldn't know your washer is on from the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.

More free time
Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The extra-large capacity (3.6 cu. ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That's time saved and sore backs avoided.

Super clean
Some stains are so nasty it's hard to imagine how they'll ever come out. LG's NSF-certified Sanitary Cycle heats water up to 158F to remove the toughest stains and bacteria.

Count on it
When you buy a washer, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

No need to vent
Dry your clothes without any need for external venting. Now you can enjoy the value and quality of an LG washer even if you have limited space.

Just set and go
Let LG take the guesswork out of doing the laundry. With features like their LED Display indicators and intuitive Dial-A-Cycle controls, you'll find the right setting every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product October 17, 2010
By A. G.
This is the first review i have ever written for a product, mostly because the reviews for this product is what led me to buy it. This product is the perfect solution for any apartment where all you have is a water line. This fit into a small pantry in our apartment and we used the plumbing from the kitchen for the washer portion. You dont need a vent for drying, and the clothes come out dry. We were originally very worried because some reviews stated that the clothes come out damp, but that will only occur if you over stuff it. We are a family of 2 and wash clothes pretty regularly, and we can fit a normal sized load into the unit and it will come out dry. It does take abour 4-5 hours depending on the size, but if you go to work and come back you have dry clean clothes, same if you do it over night. Also the unit is quiet. We would definitely reccomend this to someone looking for a ventless solution to washing. Also, I dont think we would go back to a non-combo after experiencing the ease of this. I would definitely rather have two of these units than 2 separate washer/dryers even if the capacities were more.

Cost of Operation

-Not sure as to the amount of water it uses (water is included in my rent)
-Using my P3 International P4460 Kill A Watt EZ Electricity Usage Monitor, and running a half full drum of clothes through a wash and dry cycle, it cost me $0.21. That's 21 cents at an estimated 12.2 cents per KWh. The entire cycle went through 1.72KWh.


-I had a very tight space to put this machine in, and it should be noted that the listed dimensions are the maximum values. The machine's front is 29 inches from the rear, and the circular knob on the front is what adds the extra .75". They do recommend that you have about 4 inches behind the machine for the hoses and stuff.

-I installed the machine by myself. It was very easy and it comes with a few sets of (the same) installation instructions so it's hard to go wrong. Make sure you remove the shipping bolts and retain them if you have to move the machine later. It is worth noting that if you have to tip the machine, as I had to, to remove the shipping foam from the bottom, LG tells you to tip it on its side, not on the front or rear (I am guessing to protect the drum). Having a second person to help move the unit would definitely make it easier, but if you note in the pictures I uploaded, LG added nice hand grips to the side to aid in moving the unit.

-The unit comes with all hoses, etc, necessary to connect the unit.

-The design is very nice. Although it stays in a closet, it is a very aesthetically pleasing unit. The LED readout is nice, and the buttons are big and clear. The chrome door is a nice touch as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent combo, but... September 17, 2011
I did not buy this combo at Amazon. I found it cheaper with free shipping somewhere else. I have also noticed that most of the "bad" reviews came from people who had had it for a while and had some electronic or mechanical problems. These problems are actually to be expected. This is a complex machine, and it is difficult to service! It is one of the VERY FEW appliances where I RECOMMEND buying an extended warranty! A five-year (4 yrs extended) program is available from various sellers for about $140-180. LG's extended warranty is much costlier ~$350 for the same length (and therefore not recommended!).

Another problem is with people who haven't done their research but bought this machine even though they had other options. This machine is for people who have very limited space, no capability to vent and no 240V. For those who meet these requirements, this combo is FANTASTIC! There is no better solution (so far).

I refuse to give this combo 5 stars though. There are too many limitations and compromises that had to be made. If one wants to dry, then one cannot fill the drum more than 50-60% of capacity. A full load will simply not dry. The ventless drying uses a cold water line to a radiator, which condenses the steam from the hot clothes. This process is not too efficient, a bit noisy, and takes more than 3 hrs to dry a 1/2 load.
The lint from the process stays mainly in the clothes. Some get flushed in the drain and some get trapped in a filter located on the lower left corner. The manual recommends cleaning the filter every 2 weeks or so.

Thus, to a family that has many loads, I recommend washing every day, instead of having a "laundry day" that so many people seem to have. Those people that can run a vent should consider buying a separate dryer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great machine! May 13, 2010
This combo unit is amazing!!! With a very small home, this is great for a small space having an all in one washer dryer unit. It does take a while longer than the traditional washer and dryer setup, however it is worth the extra time.

My favorite features:
Uses less water (12-14 gallons) versus the top load washer I just replaced.
Uses a 110v outlet, so now I can get rid of the bulky dryer vent and the 240V outlet for the dryer I just replaced.
Spins VERY quickly which makes cloths damp not wet like the top load washer we replaced.
When finished, the unit "sings" at you. It plays a cute little jingle!
Gets the cloths VERY clean.

My only negative:
Socks take a bit to dry.
It took us a while to find one, Home Depot ordered it for us.

When we move, I will definitley purchase another one or I will take this with me. I am so impressed by the quality and how nice it is to have it all wrapped into one unit. Its the same size as a regular front load washer.
