Answer: 
We owned this machine for about 2-3 years. We just got our machine fixed because it has been taking me about all afternoon to dry my laundry. This was happening because the heater was not functioning right anymore. After the machine technician replaced the heater, our machine now dries like when it was brand new :-)
If you wash with only about 1/2 - 1/3 load (depending on the thickness of fabrics), the clothes should come out dry after the drying cycle. However if I wash a full load of laundry, I need to run another drying cycle to dry all the clothes.

Answer: 
Hi there. I own one of these machines and it doesn't take that long to dry a load. You may be washing / drying a load that is too big. If you read the manual, it will tell you to remove half of a large load to reduce drying time. I would just encourage you to do small loads a little more frequently.

Lastly, I think "dry" is relative. For some people, they expect the clothes to be absolutely bone dry. For me, the slight dampness actually helps release wrinkles that occur when the clothes bunch together. If I'm washing professional-wear, I just immediately hang everything up when the cycle ends. The dampness is gone very soon.

Answer: 
It can take as long as 4 hours to dry clothes, but it really depends on how big your load is and what kind material. Sometimes when I am washing a load of towels, it can take 3:40 to dry, but if I take half the load out and set it on top of the machine, while drying the other half, it takes under 2 hours to dry all of it. Like 60 minutes to dry the remaining half in the machine and then 30 minutes to dry the half I took out. You have noticed I'm sure that the top of the machine gets very warm during drying. I use this residual heat to help dry the half load I took out and set on top. This helps a lot. My wife and I have discovered this machine takes a little change in lifestyle. We wash smaller loads more often. The full wash/dry cycle is significantly shorter when you wash yesterdays towels rather than washing every towel in the house. This is a great capacity machine it holds a whole lot of clothes but you really don't have to fill it up to capacity. Hope this helps

Answer: 
It is not normal to take 4 hours to dry only. The Timed Dry cycles allow, at the most 2 hours. On the automatic dry settings, the estimated drying time may vary from the actual drying time. The type of fabric, size of the load, and the selected dryness level all affect the drying times. The use of dryer sheets can also interfere with the moisture sensors used in the automatic dry cycle. If these are not the case, then 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
If you mean that opening on the lower left, the fastest way I clean this is put a big towel there to soak the water that will come out then I just rinse the filter in the sink.

To clean the lint around the rubber on the opening of the machine, I use a baby wipe and they come off really easy.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for contacting us. I do apologize but there is only one way to access the coin catch filter and that is behind the small door on the bottom, front, left hand side of the unit. I do understand the difficulty when cleaning it due to the water that spills out from the drain hose area.

What settings should I have in order to re- dry load?

We just got a combo washer Model WM 39887HW and having problems with the drying, clothes are still dump upon completion of a cycle. Tried to put it back in the machine and just set the dry option but it goes again with the complete cycle of washing and drying.

Answer: 
You should go with a timed cycle setting at the end of wash cycle. This can be paused. the timer setting lets you adjust the amount of time and temperature of the dry cycle. You will get the hang of the time needed. I suspect your dry issue may be due to large load of wash. I like to run my machine and run the drier for a short time to warm the clothes and remove dampness, then I can hang and literally they are dry in an hour or less. This technique can be used to wash a large load, hang dry a few items and then dry the remainder of load. To do this, pause the cycle during the dry, remove some delicate items, press play button and the drier resumes. The user manual describes all these solutions. It's about 40 pages long, but I recommend reading the manual before use. Things like running the initial rinse and spin before the first use when brand new are very important, as this will remove any residual shipping residues, or the like. I really wonder if many people are reading their manual based on the questions found on this site.

Answer: 
It is possible to set a DRY ONLY cycle. Press the POWER button to turn on the machine. DO NOT adjust the dial, as this will set a wash cycle. Press the DRY button repeated to set the dry time in 30-minute increments. If you have any questions or difficulties with this process, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

I understand that it takes a while for Energy Star certifications to be analysed and awarded. But was the unit designed and built to standards, with the anticipation, of meeting or exceeding the Energy Star Requirements?

Since this model has an electric dryer built in, it may not be able to meet the Energy Star requirements. Electric dryers still need a lot of electricity compared to other appliances.

This combination washer / dryer is perfect if you don't have an external venting source, which conventional dryers require, and it runs on standard voltage electricity. Although it is a space-efficient laundry solution, ideal for locations where a separate washer and dryer wouldn't fit, the full-size tub (3.6 cu ft) means you won't be compromising on washing capacity.

Disclaimer: Dry times will take longer than conventional vented dryer.
