Can it wash a washable wool king size blanket (not a comforter)? Can I use just the dryer settings without washing the clothes first? Is there a dryer rack as accessory for this model? Thanks!

Asked by: MorGope89
The LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA has a capacity of 2.8 cu. ft. which will not be large enough to accommodate your king size wool blanket. Like all other LG Washer/Dryer Combo units, this unit has a Dry Only Feature that can be used without having to activate the wash cycle. There isn't a Dryer Rack available for this unit...^IFV

How long does a a full normal washer dryer cycle take? Can it wash a comforter?

Asked by: Sturdi
The LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA, like all other LG Washer/Dryer Combos, is a ventless dryer. The difference being that other LG Washer/Dryer Combos use a Ventless Condensing Drying System and this unit uses an Inverter Heat Pump Drying System. Cycle times will depend on the chosen cycle, the pressure of the incoming water, the chosen options, the load size, the temperature of the water and the chosen Dryer Program. The TurboWash® 2.0 Technology allows you to save up to 20 minutes per load on larger loads. You also have an option of using Sensor Dry Cycles in which electronic sensors measure the temperature of the exhaust to increase or decrease drying temperatures for faster reaction time and tighter temperature control, or you can use the manual Time Drying (30/60/90/120 min). Drying cycles can last up to about 7 hours. If the load is not dry after the estimated time, the drying time is modified automatically and the new estimated time appears in the display. The actual drying time may vary from the estimated drying time for the sensor dry cycles. Drying time is affected by the type of fabric, load size, and selected dry level. Unfortunately, you have not specified what type of comforter you are inquiring about. A cubic capacity of 3.5 cubic feet is considered as being adequate for accommodating a queen sized comforter and 3.8 cubic feet will accommodate a king sized comforter. This unit has a capacity of 2.8 cubic feet which is not large enough for a queen sized or king sized comforter...^IFV

Is it safe to put into a small enclosed space with the heat the dryer gives off?

Asked by: Sturdi
The LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA, like all other LG Washer/Dryer Combos, is a ventless dryer. The difference being that other LG Washer/Dryer Combos use a Ventless Condensing Drying System and this unit uses an Inverter Heat Pump Drying System. It runs about 30-50°F cooler than its vented counterparts and uses half as much energy as the vented dryers do. Small or confined areas should not be an issue because the machine is ideal for such situations, but because it is ventless, sufficient amount of air flow has to be there for the machine to operate at its best at all times. The recommended operating temperature range where this unit should be installed is 41-95 °F (5-35 °C). If the appliance is installed in an area where the temperature is above or below the recommended operating temperature range, it may result in longer drying times or poor drying performance. The washer should never be installed or stored in a location subject to freezing temperatures. Damage to the water lines and internal mechanisms of the washer can result. If the washer was exposed to freezing temperatures prior to installation, allow it to stand at room temperature for several hours before use and check for leaks prior to operation...^IFV

I send an email almost 2 days ago and no one answered. 1) Do I still need to use anti-static dryer sheets with this 2 in 1? 2) Can I use pods in manual mode (no auto-dosing) 3) what if I need to use bleach?

Asked by: mbze430
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. If a dryer sheet is used, the fibers can become detached and will stick and melt to the sensor strips. Liquid Fabric softener should be used from the appropriate dispenser cup in the washing machine. To use fabric softener, the AUTO SOFTENER function must be active. We do not recommend the use of Pods, or packaged detergents. The manufacturer recommends the use of a liquid or powdered High Efficiency (HE) detergent in the appropriate detergent cup in order for the unit to be able to dispense the detergent and other additives at the appropriate time during the wash cycle. It is recommended to only use additives labeled specifically for HE washing machines. According to page 6 of the owner’s manual, liquid chlorine bleach should not be used. If desired, use the MANUAL DISPENSER to add POWDERED OXYGEN-BASED BLEACH to the cycle, according to page 18.
