Answer: 
All LG washer door is not interchangeable, as far as their opening orientation.
The dryers however, can be changed. Door can be opened from left to right, or right to left. Look carefully at the doro hinge and you can do it yourself very easily.

Can a check valve be used on the washer drain line?

The washer is located in the basement. I'm concerned I could get water coming back into the washer as it is lower then the main drain line exiting the home. This is the line used on my existing washer. New washer - LG front load WM8000HWA

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. We can offer no recommendations relating to installation other than that which is listed in the owner’s manual. The total height of the drain hose end should not exceed 96 inches from the bottom of the washing machine. This should allow for proper drainage.

Your ad reads that it will wash a "king" size comforter. The cycle errors out in the spin cycle indicating the load is unbalanced. I tried 3 times.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. These washers have been tested with these size loads and have been found to operate properly. There can be some variation on capabilities based on the thickness of the materials or the arrangement within the tub. If this cannot be re-adjusted to wash well, then it would be recommended to contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot the matter further.

The Tag On technology for the DLEX8500V dryer and WM8500HVA washer is advertised as working with "your smartphone." But my smartphone is an iPhone, and the fine print in the instructions states that it works only with certain Android phones. There is an iOS app for LG washers and dryers, but its uses seem limited. I do not want to replace my iPhone, but I might buy an Android tablet someday. Would it work with the Tag On NFC technology in these appliances?

Imagine being able to wash a king size comforter and a full set of bedding in a single load. And just think how much more amazing this would be if you could tackle a regular load of laundry 20 minutes faster!* Stop imagining… and go for it! LG takes the industry’s largest capacity washer** and powers it to the max with time-saving TurboWash™ technology and a steam cleaning feature that virtually eliminates dirt, wrinkles and odors. Think big. Think LG.



* Based on AHAM-HLW-1-2010 test protocol. Cotton/Normal or comparable cycle at default settings, 8-lb loads, front load washers only. Excludes other LG manufactured products. Excludes quick wash or comparable cycles intended for small, lightly soiled loads only.
** Based on ENERGY STAR qualified residential washers, as published by the D.O.E. 2/15/14.
