What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Functionality This is a functional machine, being ventless, an all-in-one washer/dryer, and size. I was able to have the machine placed adjacent to a laundry sink in my daylight basement, together with the drain hose being affixed to the sink. I had full size washer/dryers in the past but for the last several years have been utilizing a full-service laundry, by dropping off my items one evening and picking them up on another - until I started missing clothing items. I depart for work early in the mornings and generally do not arrive home until after 9:00 p.m. This machine allows me to place items in the machine to wash and program them to be dried without having to go from bedroom or loft overnight to start a dryer. It is an attractive machine with many options for washing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from THe Prior Model WM3431H Had it for several years in vacation home. It now has less than 200 loads on it. The selector panel went bad almost immediately, after less the 20 loads. The drain function was prone to failure right from the state. Today it stopped draining, complete failure. After a few hours of real troubleshooting, I verified the drain-pump impeller is free-spinning, no long being turner by the motor-driver... less than 200 load! When I call for assistance the lady try to talk about all kinds of BS and tried to avoid giving me the pump part number, this is what LG service center does, had same issues over a blue-ray player and 60" TV. She did not care in the least that the machine had defects from beginning and failed with less than 200 loads. 35 yrs ago I bought my mother a washer / dryer set (different maker) it is still running perfectly, never had any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver Bought the LG washer/dryer combo but decided after reading reviews to order the 2.2 cu.ft instead of larger machine. Tried it 3 times and very happy with performance and drying time, nothing like some of the reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed. Installed today and ran test load first. Went well, so I decided to do a load of laundry. It took almost 4 hours, but clothes were clean and completely dry. So far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for small apartments This washer/dryer is very convinient if you are tight on space. I have done many wahses and it works perfectly. The drying cycles does take longer than usual but if they loads are small you can even remove the clothes before the expected time. I live in 2 floor of an apartment building and the spin makes everything vibrate a lot. I usually only spin my clothes in medium, if it is a heavy load of towels. Jeans etc i do an extra spin. I had the machine for a month and i am very happy with it. It is worth every penny.

How can I just use the dryer feature of this unit instead of both washer/dryer? I put in a load and when it was complete my items are not dry. I want to put up the load again but just dry it. I appreciate all feedback! Thanks :)

Asked by: Lilpinecone
We appreciate your interest in this washer/dryer combination unit. There does not appear to be a DRY ONLY cycle on this model. However, it may be possible to set the DRAIN & SPIN cycle, and then add DRY to it, as the DRY cycle is supposed to begin after the final spin of the wash cycle.

Is it possible to skip the spin cycle when using just the dryer in the combo units? When I start "timed dry" it goes through a 23 minute spin cycle before drying.

Asked by: kah77
Yes, you can choose for it not to spin when you do a dry only cycle.

What does it mean when the spot you put the detergent fills up with water/detergent? Is something blocked?

Asked by: Abbi24
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is normal for water to collect in the dispenser tray. This can be removed and emptied. If detergent is still in this container, then either too much detergent was added, or the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

I am having issues with dryer cycle even after 3 hrs of drying the cloths are too hot and moist. What am I doing wrong? The product is 2 months old. Is it normal to dry cloths in air for few hours once we finish drying cycle in true stream machines?

I read that this machine runs on a 110v, 15amp circuit. Would I need to run a designated line for use only by this unit?

Asked by: DJ Serg
The LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HS draws a lot of electrical current and must be plugged onto its own dedicated circuit. A dedicated circuit is intended for use with a single appliance only. No other appliances should be plugged into or utilize the energy from this circuit, making it “dedicated” to that single appliance. Dedicated circuits ensure major appliances that draw a lot of electrical current are able to access the energy they need without overloading your system, blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker. Appliances without a dedicated circuit may draw more current than the circuit can handle, tripping breakers, blowing fuses, and overheating wire insulation causing breakdown and the possibility of electrical fires...^IFV

Asked by: Silverat46
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Some normal sounds, during the operation of this machine, include clicking, spraying/hissing, buzzing/gushing, splashing and thumping. Descriptions of these can be found on page 36 of your owner’s manual, in the BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE section.
