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 Love this washer! I got a super deal on my washer. It was the store floor model so I bought it at a bit of a discount. Such an improvement over my old washer, it makes my dryer seem more efficient with how well it spins the clothes. I have had it for over a month now and so far seems to be one of my best buys.

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

how much water is used in a normal range wash load and how much water is used in the short cycle

we are experiencing severe drought in no cal and i am curious as to the number of gallons of water used in the normal regular cycle and also the short cycle-i am basing my question on an average 8 lb load for the regular cycle and a 4 lb load for the short cycle
Asked by: whinny
We are sorry to hear of the difficulties in your area. This washing machine is designed to utilize between 13-15 gallons of water per load, compared to the 50-60 gallons of water in a traditional top-loading washer.

What setting uses the least amount of water?

Asked by: DJKk
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. All cycles are designed to use fewer than 15 gallons of water. The DELICATE cycle will use the least amount of water, as it is expecting smaller loads and delicate fabrics. The actual water levels can vary according to the amount of laundry added to the wash tub.

washing a large coleman sleeping bag

We have a 4.0 LG TROMM frontloading washer. I want to know if I can wash large Coleman sleeping bags in this. One bag fits inside the tub but not sure what will happen when the bag is full of water. I have 2 but could only fit in one at a time. Would washing one at a time throw off the balance? Would it be too heavy?
Asked by: TerriBee3
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. According to the information listed in the owner’s manual, do not wash or spin any item labeled or known to be water-proof or water-resistant, even if the product care label on the item permits machine washing. Failure to follow this instruction could result in bodily injury, severe damage to your laundry, your washer and/or property damage as a result of abnormal vibration of the washer. Beyond this, check the fabrics care label for proper care.

How long is the drain hose?

Asked by: barker
Not long enough. It may be about 8 inches, but not enough to clear the door so that you can comfortably place the hose in a container to drain.
