What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get out your lint roller!! I hate this washing machine!!! It does not use enough water to get all of the hair & fuzz off of your clothes. It takes forever to wash a load and then after you dry it be prepared to remove hair! I actually use a lint roller! I get furious and talk to myself like a crazy person! We have a Yorkie that barely sheds, I can't even imagine how much hair would be there if you have a dog that sheds! I use the extra water button and it doesn't help. I can't take it anymore so I am the search for a new one that uses lots of water! It also starts and stops adding water in short bursts that actually rattle our pipes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great But..... I do love this LG washing machine. I love that it has a large capacity, is basically quiet, does the job, is easy to load. Where I think the designers failed is with the drainage pump located at the bottom of the machine. The drainage tube is too short. It does not pass beyond the door to the little compartment making it hard to empty the water into a container, and the filter was hard to remove to check it. I had to use a wrench to open it. When I put the filter back, I did not realize that I needed to make it very tight to avoid water on my floor. I hope that with their next version of this machine, LG will lengthen the drainage tube. If this is the situation with other washing machines, they should consider fixing the feature in the other models as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full features and Quiet too. I've owned this machine for a few months now and am very happy with its performance. The wash settings are easy use understand and program to your specific needs. The machine is very quiet. I am very satisfied!

What stands are compatible with this washer and dryer combo?

Asked by: Pappy014
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. First, please note that this model is NOT a washer/dryer combo, as the question suggests. Second, this model is designed to use a model WDP4V pedestal, unless one is using the KSTK1 Stacking Kit. The two accessories cannot be used together.

On the WM357OHA washer, how do I get a cold rinse? Even on cold wash my clothes are still warm at the end.

Asked by: Tstu
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. All rinse cycles, on this device are COLD WATER only. As such, the only way that something like this might occur on a cold wash and rinse is if the water lines have been reversed, and only HOT water is coming through the lines. It is recommended to check the water lines to see which valve is connected to which water line.

What does message VE mean 

Asked by: Robo842
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. According to our records, it does not appear that the display is capable of showing the letter ‘V’. If this is a ‘UE’ error code, then the matter would be one of the spin being UNEVEN. Try to correct this imbalance, and if this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

WM3250HVA Washer stopped all tones/sounds on the front panel

Absolutely no sounds are heard at all. None at power up, "navigation" nor cycle completion. Is there a setting where that is controlled?
Asked by: babowen
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It seems that the SIGNAL function has been deactivated. The SIGNAL feature can be set back to its ON setting by pressing and holding the WATER PLUS button for 3 seconds, during the wash cycle. These instructions can be found on page 27 of the owner’s manual.

Try to start a load and the power sound comes on but nothing lights up on the control panel

Asked by: scottmcintosh
Just to clarify, are you saying that after you press the POWER button to turn the machine on, you get a confirmation beep that the unit is receiving power but you are unable to select a cycle nor the options because the display does not come on? You may want to try resetting the machine by turning the circuit breaker off for about 10 seconds then turning the unit on after turning the breaker on. If the display still does not illuminate, you will need to schedule a repair service...^IFV
