What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away! Three repairs in three years This washer/dryed worked perfect for the first two years but from then on it seems to break down every couple of months. First the drain hose ($40 for a hose) started leaking due to the poor restraint design. Then the drain pump stopped working as well as few months later (~$50). Now not barely a month after that the washer wont turn on so it is likely either the display board (~$80) or the main control board ($150)...I am a Mechanical Engineer so I can make the repairs myself, but if I wasnt able to then I would have had to shell more than the washer is worth on repairs already. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 year of use and not a problem I purchased in Oct of 2013 and have used weekly. Large or small loads features are easily set up and results have always been excellent. I have saved on water and hydro. No heavy wet clothes to transfer. I love this machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic... it took me awhile to figure the drying cycle out, but once conquered, there was no turning back. love the feature to run the unit during the early morning hours, to wake up to clean and dry laundry. so convenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good purchase The washer/Dryer combo is energy efficient and does not require a vent. The washing performance is excellent, the only draw back is that you can only fill the machine about half full in order to properly dry your clothes. So you are not getting 4.2 CuFT, more like 2.1CuFt. The drying time is about double of that of a standard electric dryer but worth the savings. You have to clean your drain filter regularily and your tub liner after every wash. I did not realize this and within a year and a couple of months we had to replace the drain pump. Overall good purchase, I live in a condo so the space savings is a major plus to only having one machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One unit makes it so practical for small spaces. We took a chance with this new technology and bought our first LG combo washer dryer in 2003, we have no regrets. The unit is very economical to operate, it takes a small tea spoon of detergent per load and the best part is there is no static cling from the dryer cycle, no need for dryer sheets. It washes so carefully that on occasion when I have forgotten a Kleenex in my pocket the washer actually separated each ply, I found them all intact at the end of the load. After nine years it is still working as well as the day we bought it. We are so satisfied that we have decided to investing in another unit for our recently purchased vacation home.
