What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Washer I ever owned This washer is stackable with the compact ventless dryer. It really cleans the clothes with just one ounce of liquid HE Laundry detergent. I just love the tune it plays to let me know the wash is done. It is so easy to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Break Downs We are not at all happy with this machine in less than a year all the boards went out took for ever to get them replaced and now 17 months later they have gone again now the waiting game one again to have it fixed. Thing about buying another brand!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs We were replacing our 10 year old machine. Being that we needed a compact washer we were limited by our choices. We are a family of four and the size of this machine is perfect for us. Through my research LG scored the best - had the largest load size and most feature options. The compact washers are more expensive in general in comparison to their larger counter parts (that is why my "value" rating is as it is), but overall this washer is vastly superior to our old washer - and of similar price point. I would recommend this washer to anyone, it is quiet, cleans very well, and easy to use. I'm very happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many bells and whistles in a Small package! I've had my washer and dryer set for two and half years now. It's definitely pricey for its size. They're a perfect fit for my laundryroom 4.5 x 6.5 x 8.5, so I was elated to have them stacked. I have used all of the wash cycles, options, and soil levels. I use the Sanitary cycle to wash whites, pour liquid bleach in the fabric softener dispenser and it sanitizes the machine at the same time. I swear by the Hand Wash cycle, finally No More handwashing! I like all the sounds from the chimes/jingles to vibration of the spin cycles. I wish I could upload a pic of my laundryroom, it is the cutest. Thanks to LG I truly enjoy doing my laundry now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Excellent washing machine. Has features that appear as overkill initially but become very useful over time. Water heater feature is very useful on front loaders because initial fill may be from colder water still in hot water pipes. Largest capacity of the apartment size washers. Elevated stand very expensive for what is provided

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appearence, functionality, are excellent. Quiet!!! Clothes are clean and fresh with little detergent. The water is spun out well at all settings and ridiculously so at the highest setting. The unit fits quite comfortably under my kitchen counter alongside the companion dryer. The pair has made laundry a simple task And no stairs!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient, effective! Does what I expect a washing machine to do and fits my available space. Easy to use.

Does the washer door of the washer WM 1355 HW have to be left open when not is use?

During my research, I read that one washer door must be left open. I don't remember which.
Asked by: Jeannelee
Just leave the door to the washer open until the rubber rim is completely dry (so it won't mildew), then you can close it.

Will this washer work on solar using a Magnum 2000 watt inverter?
Asked by: ukdenboy
The LG 2.3 cu. ft. Large 24” Compact Front Load Washer, Model # WM1355HW is rated at 120V, 10A and how much electricity it uses will depend on how long you how many loads you do in a day or week. You probably have other electronics running off the inverter that you will need to account for. This ubit has an Estimated Yearly Electrical use of 108 kWh (that's 108,000 watts!) Please refer to your inverter's manual for advice on which units you can run on it or contact the inverter's manufacturer...^IFV

in the 'normal' wash cycle, how many rinses does it provide? And, is there any option for adding an extra rinse cycle?

I want to avoid any detergent being left in the clothes.
