What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised! I was not happy about purchasing a front load washer after my old top load washer quit working. Now I'm glad the old one died! This washer is really easy to use even though it looked pretty overwhelming at first. It does a great job cleaning and with the Sidekick, I can get 2 loads done at the same time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Misleading connectivity options We found ourselves needing a new washer. We previously had a "smart" washer that could be controlled with in IOS app. I am a technology lover and intrigued with smart home devices, so when I saw this washer advertised as being WiFi capable with a smartphone app for connectivity, I was sold. However, after delivery, I discovered that the iPhone SmartThinQ app would not connect with this washer. Even though LG (and the retailer's) product information said smartphone compatible, it is not compatible with IOS products and LG's customer support only indicates "Our engineers are working on it" but they have been for months now. I really hate that I paid a premium price for this washer now. I cleans the clothes, but so would a much cheaper model from any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet We decided to go really high end for our updated laundry room and I was worried I might not really notice a difference from our older top loaders. I have and I'm thrilled. There are a variety of cycles, my delicates come out clean but not destroyed. I wish you didn't have to leave front loader's doors ajar until they dry but that just seems to be part of the deal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse wash machine I have ever had - paid top doll The power stops. Takes a month and a half to get someone out - they replace the "brain". Works for a day - again with the power. I call electrician - they find nothing with my power. Changed to another outlet - still flashes all the time. Called for another service - they give you an option for them to call you back. Its been a week now - never heard back. Please do not buy this product - NEVER. Only had 4 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Multiple failures in first year of ownership We upgraded to a wonderful new LG washer after owning an older model for about 10 years. This new washer lasted 8 months before the first complete failure (it would not power up) and since then has need repairs every month. We are so disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irrefutable Garbage! Irrefutable Garbage! My wife and I purchased the 5.2 cu.ft. MEGA Capacity w/ On-Door Control Panel & TurboWash® LG WM9000 washer and its associated dryer counterpart, the 9.0 cu.ft. Mega Capacity TurboSteam™ Dryer w/ On-Door Control Panel DLEX9000 from a nationally-known retailer whose employees delivered and installed both machines. I shall preface my remarks with the following statement: LG's instructions for proper leveling of both machines, as well as the proper loading sequence of clothing, were followed precisely. Both machines were professionally installed and leveled by the retailer's installers. Both machines were placed in our laundry room on a tile floor, beneath which is a post-tension foundation, a very solid, perfectly level and stable slab of concrete. The first matching pair of machines were returned due to a service technician's inability to achieve an acceptable level of performance from both the washer and dryer. During the spin cycle, the washing machine vibrated loudly and, no matter how well the load was distributed, the imbalance could not be ameliorated. Additionally, the dryer leaked water from the water injection port inside the dryer. A replacement washer and dryer were delivered one month later, both of which exhibited similar behaviors, however, to an even greater degree. The washer vibrated so violently that the tub slammed against both sides of the machine's cabinet. Every time the machine entered the spin cycle, my wife stood guard to intervene when the vibration became severe. The dryer produced a loud clicking sound when the steam dry feature was selected. My wife and I discussed the serious shortcomings of these two LG products with the salesperson from whom they were purchased, in order to ascertain our options. We decided to try once again. The odds of another pair of machines exhibiting the same flawed characteristics were calculated to have been very low. Indeed, we were proven wrong. Yet another month elapsed until the third pair of machines were delivered. Unfortunately, the very same discrepancies, and new ones, were experienced! The washer produced a myriad of abnormal noises to include creaking, snapping, clicking, squeaking and a severe imbalance during the spin cycle. Each time the washer entered the spin cycle, the machine contorted with such violence that the glass door bowed outward. I expected the door to be thrust open. My wife intervened when the tub violently struck the sides of its cabinet. As for the dryer, it produced an annoying thumping sound. One last issue deserves the recognition of the reader of this commentary. The web-enabled features of the LG SMART Laundry app failed to function as characterized by LG's promotional guides. According to an LG customer service representative, there is no iOS-compatible app for the washer and no app functionality exists for the dryer. Moreover, functionality with non-iOS devices is limited and, often, inconsistent, according to the service technician. Therefore, the LG SMART Laundry app is useless. In point of fact, nothing works properly. LG designers and engineers clearly failed to properly design, evaluate and execute any aspect of this washing machine and dryer. You would be well-advised to search elsewhere for a washer and dryer. One of our happiest days was when my wife and I watched both machines disappear from view as they were loaded onto a truck to be hauled away - never to be seen again! My wife and I will never again purchase an LG product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Washer! Wow! I throw in the load of clothes, it's so quiet, I can't hear it run. It must work because the clothes come out clean. I love it! It's Simply amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG is rated #1 We replaced the old washer and dryer that came the 8 year old home we purchased last year, and it's too bad we didn't get this set earlier, because these machines are above fantastic. We got the pedestals for both and they can handle any size of load you have and to top it off they are whisper quite, you can't even hear them running.

I have power to the washer but it will not come on when you touch the power button. Acts dead. Is there a fuse somewhere or could something be wrong with the door.

Can you wash wool sweaters and coats with this washer?  If so how?

Asked by: HcmCA
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. It is first recommended to inspect the fabric care label on these items to check for recommended care. The NOTE sections in the owner’s manual make several indications of classifying WOOL garments as DELICATE materials, avoiding high temperatures and steam.

Is door reversible?

Asked by: Rayburn
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. While it may be possible, on a LG Dryer, to change the direction of the opening of the door, the washing machines are shaped differently, and cannot be reversed.

why does it say that this machine has SmartthinQ and SmartDiagnosis, yet this machine is not available to register those features on the website or the app?  Why am I unable use these features?

Asked by: kawfy
There is no application available for iPhones and the iPad won't let me register my lg wm9000hva washer. I spent a lot of money on this washer and dryer to be able to connect to them. Now I can't...

What setting do you recommend for waterproof items? My kids are very young so I frequently need to wash mattress covers. 

Asked by: Mindy18
We do not recommend washing waterproof items in the unit. This may cause abnormal vibration, or may cause the load to bounce, which could damage the tub. Please refer to page 20 of your owner's manual for further assistance.

Can you choose which side the door is on?

Asked by: Jamie1503
You can change which side opens. They come set to open with washer on your left, dryer right. The doors open so the wash is easily transferred from the open door of the washer to the open door of the dryer. The washer opens from right, dryer from left. But if you wanted, they do make it possible to change this.
