Your website lists the wm3550hvca as 5.0 cu ft and also as 4.3 cu ft. Are they different machines?

Answer: 
It's the same machine but depending on where you are the volumes use different measurements. Sort of like Imperial gallons and US gallons.

1 US gallon = 3.79 litres
1 Imperial gallon = 4.54 liters

DOE is Department of Energy
IEC is International Electotechnical Commission

In this case,
IEC 5.0 cu ft = DOE 4.3 cu ft

Answer: 
I'm hyper-vigilant about the problem, so I always leave the door open and wipe down the door when I'm down with it. I have no had any problems with mold. I also run the 'maintenance' mode once a month as advised.

As far as I know, this is a complaint with all front loaders, not just LG. I do think the extra hassle is worth it. I notice the difference in the new clothes I've purchased: they don't worn out as quickly thanks to the lack of an agitator. Also, my LG 3550 costs $10 a yr to operate, which is fantastic.

Good luck in whateve you decide!

Im not sure how to wash silk or what the Allergience and Fresh Care cycles do or the Wrinkle care and Easy Iron for my dryer. I spent hours chatting online with a rep who couldn't find any information on it. Is there a guide yet? Or do any other users have suggestions?

Answer: 
Silk only goes in the delicate setting. In fact I suggest washing any clothes you're fond of in this setting.

Allergience cycle just adds steam to the regular cycle. So only use it with items that can be washed with hot water.

Answer: 
As it turns out our LG Dryer units have reversible doors and adjustable venting so you could place it according to how your space it set up, however the Frontload Washers don't have reversible doors, the Washer door hinge is on the left.

Thank you for your question!
Have a lovely week!

If so, can the door on the dryer be switched to open the opposite way? This is potentially a big problem for...my wife... :P

The dryer door is reversible. There are step by step instructions should be available in the manual. If they aren't available, please call LG customer service at 800-243-0000.
