Rated 3 out of 5 by from GOOD AND BAD THE GOOD: if you want an all in one great looking high tech machine then this is the one for you. I am very happy with the features and how great this machine looks and how convenient it is with the auto dispensing and the touch screen and the fact that it washes and dries is very cool. the alerts on your cell phone and having a cell phone app is very cool too. THE BAD: if there are more than 2 people in your household then this is NOT the machine for you. takes very long to dry, at least an hour to 2 hours longer than my previous vented dryer and that is only filled 40% to 60% capacity so not sure how it would do if filled 100%. the unit is not great with towels, seems like they get really beat up. (edges are tattered after a wash). also there is a weird smell on the clothes when they are done. its not good or bad just weird. the machine also has a loud humming sound when it is drying caused by the heat pump (kind of annoying). another pain is to clean the lint filter, you have to remove a plug from a small hose in front grab a bucket and drain out the remaining water and then unscrew the filter and remove it. its a pain waiting for the water to drain out. there is also no pre- warning to clean the lint filter. the machine will stop in mid cycle with an error code and will not let you continue until you drain all the water and clean it. that is a big problem. the mini washer pedestal is a must have or else the main unit is so low on the ground it will kill your back. that being said, the mini washer is MINI. you can only put a few items in it, you have to add detergent by hand, no auto dispensing. and you still have to take out the clothes and put them in the main unit to dry. not sure if I would buy this again if I had to do over, but I am a single guy so it works for me so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I bought it months ago Have only had it one month, but so far, I LOVE THIS MACHINE! I have to do laundry every day and live in an area where the houses are very small and this is perfect. My kitchen is free of clutter at last! And you can put the laundry in a forget about it. My old dryer was gas so I was worried about my electric bill going up, but it didn't. There is a little learning curve, figuring out how to dry things, but you work it out eventually. UNlike previous generation machines, this one has a "dry only" feature. I hesitated because of the price, but would buy it again in a second!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smart Appliance Price for Dumb Machine I am completely satisfied with the LG Signature Washer/Dryer Combo's ability to wash and dry my clothes. Unfortunately, none of the smart features work! I have been on the phone with some fantastic representatives that state this is a known issue without resolution. If it were a known issue, I would not have purchased this item. I I could have purchased a normal washer dryer combo for $2,000 less!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Delivered about three weeks now. I love it. Yes a bit slow to dry but it certainly does what it supposed to do. I am very impressed. Still learning all the amazing features but certainly learned you can add dry time. It really works people. I am an LG kinda guy now. Just bought the LG OLED tv and own three different LG refrigirators. Great products

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Changing my expectations To be fair, the LUWM101HWA is our first washer/dryer combination unit and also our first unit leveraging ventless (heat pump) dryer technology. Our expectations were that the dryer might take twice as long to dry as our prior unit. With that in mind, we are experiencing washer / dryer times that are five (5) hours or more. As a family of four (4), we have had to drastically change how we approach laundry as a chore as a result. The size, speed, and savings of the LUWM101HWA are all drawbacks as you cannot complete a week's worth of laundry in a single day, it is now an every day activity for us. With that said, we really like the interface and many of the other features. Before we experimented with permanent press mode, all of our clothes came out severely wrinkled so now we have to use permanent press with nearly every load. In hindsight, we would return/replace the LUWM101HWA with a traditional unit if we had the option as it was simply not a good fit for our needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly surprised!!! I have used this miracle machine for a month now. For the first time in history it is a nice size tub and performs magic with it's choices, auto dispense, silent operation and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Washer/Dryer This is the best washer/dryer I have ever owned. I wash and dry about two loads of laundry everyday. I love that you can just turn it on and it will wash and then dry and you do not need to check on it. If you put it on the timed dry cycle for 120 minutes the clothes come out dry. Perm Press is great if you do not want to iron. Easy to clean and take apart the drain filter to remove any left over lint. I can not say enough good things about this amazing machine!!

How much clearance is required at the back of the unit? Installation guide seems to indicate 4"? Is that the minimum clearance needed? My closet is 27.5 " deep and I am wonder if it would fit (assumes operating unit with closet door open).

Asked by: Ronda B
The recommended installation clearance of 4 inches in the back of the LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA is to ensure that it has sufficient spacing around it for airflow, ease of installation and servicing, especially if you intend to install it in a closet which confines the space...^IFV

To the right of the detergents containers is that access to clean the lint?

Asked by: Don mega
HI Don. That is correct. To the right of the Auto Dispense tray in the LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA is the Drain Pump Filter that should be checked periodically for any lint or foreign objects that might clog it and prevent the unit from draining. An ‘[OE]‘ message blinks on the display when the drain pump filter is clogged with dirt...^IFV

What is the difference between the energy saving dryer mode and the regular dryer mode?  What does it do differently and how much more energy can it expect to save?

Asked by: Nobody7621
Energy Saver is an option that can be added to the Cotton/Normal cycle. On some models it is defaulted to ON automatically and must be disabled. When activated, the dry cycle will run for the first 40 minutes as an air dry cycle ONLY. The heater will Not engage. The cycle time is longer, but because the heating element is not engaged, energy consumption is reduced. Unfortunately, I do not have details on estimated savings because it completely depends on the load size and fabric types. ^AC

Is there a basic pedestal available for this unit.  I don’t need the additional washer pedestal, but a simple pedestal with a storage drawer would be great to raise the washer a little so you don’t have to bend over as far to load/unload it.

Asked by: Bobbbbbb
The LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, model LUWM101HWA, is only compatible with the LG SIGNATURE: 0.7 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, model LUWD1CW. ^AC

Does the dryer dry clothes 100 %?? Also, I’ve seen a number is driers shrink clothes , does this product have the same issue? 

Asked by: SS212
If you do not overload the LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA, it will dry all your loads completely. You have to keep in mind that the washing capacity for the washer is twice that for its drying capacity, so if you wash a full load, you will need to remove half of your load out for drying. That is why when a standalone washer and dryer are matched, the matching dryer typically has about twice the capacity of the washer. What also helps for the drying performance is how much moisture and water is removed in the final spin of the washing cycle. The more water that the washer removes from your clothes, the more effective the drying performance will be. Again, if you overload your clothes for the washing cycle, that will reduce the machines capability to extract water from your load. Dryers produce heat to dry your clothes. You need to check your garment labels to avoid garment shrinkage and you also need to check those labels for the correct water temperature setting that the items should be washed in because the shrinking can happen before you even get to the drying cycle...^IFV

My washing machine is leaving suds. We just got this set and I am not happy with it!

Asked by: Rene 4
If the machine is leaving suds, we would recommend decreasing the amount of HE detergent that is being used. If you are using the auto dispense feature, please look review the concentration level of the detergent. If the detergent is 2x or 3x concentrated, the type of detergent may need to be changed before utilizing the auto dispense feature. For further assistance, please reach out to one of our Signature Concierge Team members. Contact information will be located within your owner's manual.

can soft water be used with this washer?

Asked by: golfbug
It doesn't matter whether you use hard or soft water with this LG SIGNATURE Washer/Dryer Combo, Model # LUWM101HWA as long as you can take the necessary preventative measures to correct for the type of water in your environment. Fortunately, soft water does not cause the types of problems that hard water does. You don't have to use as much detergent and additives when washing with soft water...^IFV

I bought a LUWM101HWA signature combo washer / dryer. I noticed there is no lint trap despite this being a dryer. Where does the lint go? A dryer produces lint. Is lint going down the drain in the next cycle? Getting collected inside the machine?

Asked by: Dexwolfram
The lint goes into the drain pump and is caught in the drain pump filter. We would recommend cleaning the drain pump filter every week to every other week depending on usage. ^CP
