Product Description

All-in-One Washer and Dryer
This laundry dream washes and dries all in one machine.

Who Is It for?
People who want to be able to do laundry at home but don't have an external venting source which conventional dryers require. It's great for busy people who want to start a load and return to clean clothes. The Delay Start feature allows convenient completion of laundry to fit your schedule. Homes, apartments, businesses and vacation homes where there may be space constraints.

What Are The Advantages? No outside venting is required because it is ventless condensing. It runs on a standard 115V electricity and not gas. No need to wait to transfer from the washer to the dryer.

Customer Questions & Answers

Top Customer Reviews

After some initial research into the matter, I found out that you would need a special hookup for either a washer or a dryer (you need both water input and a way to dispose of the dirty water without overflowing your pipes) and you need venting for the dryer. The majority of machines that were designed to perform in an apartment WITHOUT such a hookup had review after review complaining of poor cleaning, high energy usage, breaking down, noise, super small load capacities, and leakage. But further searching found this LG WM3431 Washer/Dryer with mostly positive reviews on the different websites. It was the answer to my prayers. (Note: Despite the negative reviews, you will NOT find a better washer/dryer combo that can operate in an apartment without venting).

The Pros
1. For apartments --It's one of only a few machines on the market that's designed to work in a small space without a traditional washer or dryer hookup. That means that the electric plug goes into any three-prong outlet in your house and the water input hose can be connected to your sink. The water outlet hose dispenses into any drain and does not dump a huge amount of water so as to overwhelm your sink or bath pipes. The dryer also doesn't need a hot air vent out a window or anything. Of the machines of this genre, I've found that the LG delivers superior performance.
2. Cleaner clothes while using less water. Also, the LG WM3431 has a sanitary cycle that cleans clothes with super hot water and has kept my whites gleaming.
3. Money --I calculated that at $1.50 per wash and $1.50 per dry, it would cost me $312 a year to do 2 small loads weekly and $468 a year to do 3 small loads weekly. The machine would pay for itself in two to three years.

i have been using my lg w/d combo for over a year now. i have a very small condo and lack of space, 220 power and venting were the deciding factors for me. i LOVE not having to take my laundry to the basement and worry about moving the laundry from the washer to the dryer. this machine has worked great for me.

i do more smaller loads now. usually 4-6 loads a week for just one person (and a cat). it rarely takes over 3 hours to wash and dry total and occasionally i choose to dry less time and line dry to finish. i never dry my jeans anyway. and yes, if i wash one towel, 2 wash clothes and a hand towel -- it is full. don't try to cram too much into this machine. it works a lot better with small loads.

i like the delay function so i can set it up in the morning and time it to be done when i get home from work.

things are more linty than a normal dryer. i got a lint roller. but my clothes come out a lot softer than the regular dryer because they're not baked to a crisp. it's a gentler dry.

it has diferent settings for "hand wash" "delicates" and "speed wash" in addition to normal etc.

i really like it. the only real annoyance i have with it, is that the door takes a really long time to unlock after a dry cycle, even after pushing the unlock button.

it is supposedly very water and energy efficient. i recommend the lg WM3431HW.

I've used this machine for a year and it's just barely OK. It takes some getting used to. You can only wash and dry a small load....three pairs of jeans max. Don't even think of starting a load in the evening because the very loud dry cycle will keep you awake late into the night. You have to plan for a load to take 4 hours. Your clothes come out very hot and with a slightly dry/burned smell. No Downey freshness here! There are only two serious problems, though:
1. Wrinkles. WOW, BAD!
2. Anything with elastic will get ruined rather quickly.

If there's any way you can install a small washer/dryer stackable, do that instead. If this is your only option, you can get used to it.
