Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features This appliance is great, it has quick and easy access to washing, pausing and adding more clothes, wash well to

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The loudest washer ever! I've never had a machine that makes this much noise. My baby can not even nap when this machine is on. It is so loud I can hear it and even feel it on the first floor (our laundry is on 2nd floor). It shakes up the whole house and literally makes the loudest thumping noise especially when its on turbo wash. At first we thought that there was a defect in the washer. We requested a replacement only to find out that the replacement is making even more noise than our previous one. I honestly think that the problem is in the way this machine sits on the pedestal. We tried everything from leveling to tightening the screws, but nothing works. The worst design with a pedestal I've ever owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not clean Worst clothes washer I have ever owned or used. If your clothes actually get dirty, do not buy this. I have to wash things 2-3 times on the highest setting with the "Water Plus" feature on the highest setting. As long as you sit in an office behind a desk, do not have children, pets, play outside, go to the gym and actually sweat, it would do an adequare job of cleaning clothes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Last LG Frontloader (WM2487) was Better Just received our new LG today to replace a 9 year old LG WM2487. I've tried all the combinations of cycle options and it seems LG has set the software on the WM3670 so that it is impossible to select or enable both the Water Plus and Extra Rinse options for any wash cycle. There's no such mention in the manual that use of one option removes the ability to use the other - RELEASE A SOFTWARE UPDATE LG!. True balance does provide smooth high rpm spin but there is more wobble / tub shake at low rpms since the ball bearings in the balance ring haven't spread out. This unit was manufacturered in Vietnam vs Korea and there's some little telltale signs that build quality isn't what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Washer Great Machine, does everything they said it would and it's easy to use.. My only complaint is too much cleaning required. I have to wash my washing machine? Requires you to empty water and clean / dry out the rubber door seals... It also took forever to be delivered from LG... (Months)

If this washer/dryer pair are stacked, can one still use a pedestal to raise the bottom unit up? Or must the bottom unit be on the ground? Can the pedestal carry the weight of both units? Will the upper unit be too high to reach with pedestal?

Asked by: rks67
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity with Steam Technology, Model # WM3670HRA and its matching dryer both have a height of 38 11/16". When stacked, the combined height will be 77 3/8". If you could, adding a pedestal would raise the total height by another 13 3/5" making it 90 39/40". That would definitely make the dryer too high to reach and stacking units that high would also be a potential hazard. But either way, a stacked washer and dryer cannot be placed on a pedestal either, that is too much weight on the pedestal...^IFV

Is there a manual to clean the inner rubber piece inside the washer it has built up mildew from being used I guess ??

Asked by: LonnyKeitt
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. This model is designed with a TUB CLEAN cycle which should assist in this matter. Otherwise, it is suggested to use a hot cloth and either a non-abrasive detergent or vinegar in order to clean out the gasket.

What is turbowash? What does hand wash wool and drain and spin mean? Explain easy loading tiltub. What is the difference between this model and WM4370HKA? Thanks

Asked by: novo
LG's revolutionary TurboWash™ technology allows you to save 20-30 minutes on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance. It's like pressing the fast forward button on your laundry. It uses high-powered jets of water to switch up the spray patterns of water inside the drum in order to reduce cycle length. It’s the default option on the 39 minute Cotton/Normal cycle, but can be chosen for other cycles as well. The hand wash cycle is designed to imitate how clothes are washed in the sink, this setting has periods of gentle tumbling alternated with soaking in cold water, making it ideal for washing your most delicate garments such as those with sequins, embroidery, wools (Only wash woolen items that are labeled machine washable or hand-washable) or prominent buttons or other items requiring you to use the hand wash setting. The Drain+Spin cycle is for draining and spinning without having to go through the wash and rinse cycle again, or for removing the load from the washing machine in the middle of the cycle. Easy Loading TilTub refers to the how the drum TilTub is designed with a 10° tilt for easy reach of clothing in the rear of the drum. Please visit our site at http://www.lg.com/us/front-load-washers where you can add the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2016 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity with Steam Technology, Model # WM3670HVA and Model # WM4370HKA to compare the washers according to their similarities or their differences using the product comparison function...^IFV

When you first start a cycle in the washing machine, should it begin by draining?

Asked by: Kathryn52
I wonder if what we are hearing is the last of the rinse water left in the pump from the last wash session?

Can this machine handle a queen size quilt or a king size blanket? What is the size of laundry can this machine handle? Also how can I tell when my model was manufactured?

Asked by: Hart4Design
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The wash tub on this model is 4.5 cubic feet. The contents of the drum will need to have room to tumble in order to wash the load properly, as it is this tumbling motion that provides agitation for the wash cycle. Consider these, as well as the product care label, when checking whether or not the specified items can be washed in this machine. The specifications on this model were released in 2016. As such, it is likely that this unit was manufactured within the 2016 production year.

I have had my washing machine 3 weeks now. I am very disappointed on how it rattles. HHgregg sent someone out and they said it was normal. My daughter has the same machine and her does not sound like this. Is it normal for it to rattle when it is draining

Asked by: Cheyl
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. There should not be a rattling sound during the drain cycle. It is suggested to check the drain pump filter, behind the small panel along the bottom left of the cabinet. It may be that something could be rattling through the trap while the drain pump is active.
