What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disappointed I bought this combo about two months ago and im very sad that i cant return it. From day one it started vibrating a little and was noisy. The noise has progressively gotten worse and now i need someone to come out and service it. It takes aprx 3 hours to do a load of laundry. I don't have just a dry cycle that i can fluff up my clothes. And when the laundry comes out its piping hot to where i can hardly touch it. and the clothes come out very wrinkled, which really annoys me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compact washer and dryer in one! I have been using this washer and dryer all in one for about a month now I absolutely Love it ...The only thing is the drying takes a little longer otherwise I would give it 5 star..washes really well, pretty quiet if it’s installed properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space saver Fits in a small space and does a great cleaning job. The dry portion does not do a “fluff” dry. Even when items are removed immediately and hung up, they may have to be ironed. All in all, when space is limited, it’s a great machine with many settings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much time to dry clothes I bought the washer/dryer combo knowing it was unvented and took a long time to dry clothes. But using it was more time consuming than expected because the drying time was 4-5 hours when washing one half a load amount. The question about recommendation is a qualified "no". I would explain that if space was the critical element and the user did not care about load size and dry time, then buy one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I purchased this washer/dryer combo about a month ago. I am very disappointed. The water temperature is too hot! The dry cycle only drys to about 80%. When I remove my clothes at the end of cycle, they are so hot to the touch. Therefore, my clothes are shrinking and fading due to too hot temperatures. I really wanted this machine to work for me, but have had no luck in getting LG or Home Depot to take it back in exchange for a separate washer and dryer. These things were not pointed out to me before purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible We bought this 2 weeks ago and we are returning it today. Horrible smell while running and it has left all of our clothes with that same smell. Our clothes are ruined with that baked in smell. I would give this no stars if I could. Not to mention the incredibly long dry time for a normal size load. Total energy waster! Extremely disappointed.

what does it mean for showing OE and UE

Asked by: heidi9357
Error code 'OE' on the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer< Model # WM3488HS occurs when the washing machine is draining too slowly or not at all. There are a few things you will need to check that may be the cause. Check to see if the drain hose is installed over 3 1/4 Feet (1 m) beyond the end of the elbow bracket. If it is, lower it to within 3 feet below the end of the elbow bracket. Check if the drain hose is pinched or clogged. If you drain hoses are frozen, you will need to thaw them in warm water. You will also need to open the drain pump cover and check to make sure that the drain pump filter is not clogged with foreign objects or lint. Erro code 'UE' indicates an unbalanced load. This may be due to not having enough items in the machine, or that clothing is gathered on one side of the tub. You will need to rearrange the items to help balance the load. Stuffed animals or mats can become unbalanced while the machine is spinning...^IFV

How long should it take to dry a half load of close I have let it run for hrs and still not all the way dry

Asked by: Scameron
You need to keep in mind that the washing capacity of the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HS is twice that of its drying capacity, so if you wash a full load, you will need to take ha;f of that load out for drying otherwise, it will take an unusually long time to dry. You will need to make sure that your cold and hot water taps are fully opened. Water is needed in order for it to perform the dry function. The cold water is used to condense the moisture in the air and dry your clothes. Also, check that the drain pump at the bottom left of the unit has been cleaned because this can also reduce your cold water supply...^IFV

Does it have a filter that I need to clean?

Asked by: Ibb0804
In the lower right corner on the front of the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HS is the Drain Pump Filter cover behind which is the Drain Pump Filter. It is recommended that you clean the drain pump filter periodically to prevent it from being clogged by foreign objects from the wash. The instructions for how to clean this filter can be found on page 33 of the owner's manual...^IFV

Can you take clothes out before it goes to dry cycle.  I don’t like to dry everything.  

Asked by: Roberta1954
If you just set the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HS to wash without pressing the DRY button to select drying options, when the wash cycle ends, the washer will play a melody and the door will unlock. You can then open the door and remove your laundry. You can also just perform a DRY ONLY to dry your clothes...^IFV

What setting do you put shoes on

Asked by: Andrea locklear
It is not recommended to wash shoes in one of these machines, because the rubber soles of the shoes can restrict water flow and cause the tub to run off-balance. If there are additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
