We bought an LG Washer/Dryer combo, and I really love it, except for one thing: my clothes are SO wrinkly when I pull them out. Even after ironing, they are still a bit wrinkly :(

I've noticed that when I dry things using the low temperature setting, they are not as wrinkly, but I would have to dry most loads twice if I used the low temperature setting every time.

I have included a photo of a wrinkled pair of pants. (This is after ironing!!!)

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for you help!

Answer: 
I've had the same issue. Two things: 1. Make sure your loads are not too big. During the drying process, they need enough room to fluff up. Too many clothes, and all they can do is clump together and wrinkle. 2. Cheap cotton wrinkles. I've had trouble with kaki pants from Target and some jeans doing this. For those items, I just pull them after the wash cycle and let them air dry FLAT on top of the machine while the rest of the clothes are drying. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Wrinkling can occur by a few different possibilities: if the hot and cold water lines are reversed; if the washer is not unloaded promptly upon completion of the cycle; if the washer is overloaded. A hot water cycle can set wrinkles into garments. It is always recommended to remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle is complete. There are no special settings on the unit for this purpose.

1. Is there some exhaust into the room?

2. Can it be vented outside if we prefer?

Thank you.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. Is water actually visibly entering the tub, or can it simply be heard? Some water is used in the condensation process that is used for drying the clothes. Otherwise, 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....
