What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet. Love the efficiency, large shiny tub, tunes over an obnoxious buzzer
Date published: 2017-11-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Accessory! Purchased this and the main washer in July 2017 (I also reviewed the main washer in its own review). They were on national backorder. The delay was very much worth the wait. This is useful for me because often I have just a couple shirts or something that I just want to wash and hang up. This sidekick fits that bill. It's gentle on the shirts and jeans I have put in it. There are not that many programs for this unit but the ones that are included with it make sense for the type of garments its can wash (its tiny). It is VERY quiet! You don't hear it running. I have these units placed in my apartment kitchen (there is on premises laundry but I prefer to use my own). These units replaced an LG WM3997HWA. I upgraded to these because I wanted the latest and greatest in combo washer/dryer units. It does NOT have an auto dispense system like the main washer, so you have a little rubber cup you put in there with detergent. If you want to add softener in the final rinse, the system will alert you by a soft chime and via the smartphone app (Android). Setup was super easy. There are NO cold/hot water hoses included so make sure you get a set. Using the smartphone app, the units paired up easily and it also set them to the wifi system. It also includes a remote controller so you don't have to bend down to set your program. You can use the smartphone app to start a cycle remotely (has to be on the wifi network) if you want, in addition to using the main screen on the washer. Overall, it is a quality machine. It's quiet, cleans your garments as you expect, and I did not realize I needed it until I started using it!

Can both the WM3997HGA & LUWD1CW be stacked on top of the WDP4W?

Asked by: stanta
Hello, the LUWD1CW is the pedestal washer for the LG Signature line. The WM3997HWA can be placed on the pedestal washer model WD100CW but the WD100CW can not be placed on a pedestal as it itself is a pedestal. ^AC
