What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer I liked it too much It is not noisy and wash perfectly
Date published: 2017-10-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Larger loads means Fewer loads This washer saves time and money because the large capacity allows more clothes per load. I finish doing my laundry sooner and have more time to do anything else. Large loads in a small washer means wrinkled clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Signature are the best. I can do my laundry in half the time
Date published: 2017-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wash and dry and half the time I had the ability to try this amazing product before buying it I fell in love after my first load I will never look back or look at any other washer the same Iit sinces what needs to be done with each load It just know how to treat your clothes without having to hit so many buttons I am now hooked and will forever stay with the LG signature line

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable Coming up on one year of heavy use. No issues. Very reliable
Date published: 2017-09-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, gets clothes clean Often, products with many options can be annoying to use. Not so with this washer. I like the many options for everything from Rinse & Spin to Jumbo loads. I find the Allergiene, Sanitary, Sportswear cycles very useful and am thrilled that I can just make that selection and gol. Clothes always come out cleaner than any other washer I have owned. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capacity Deluxe! I purchased this machine in order to do winter horse blankets. Laurdrymats did not want me washing them due to allergies of others using the machines. Problem solved! It does a great job on the horse blankets and regular laundry too!
Date published: 2017-09-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer, bad app This thing is enormous.. which is great if you have the space. Some of the programs take over 2 hours which is a bit much- my only complaint is that the app connectivity is terrible. I can't get it to work with an iPhone or iPad. A bummer because I was looking forward to being able to create a custom program.

Can the door be reversed to swing either left or right?

Asked by: Hula
The door on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG SIGNATURE 5.8 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Washer, Model # WM9500HKA is not reversible...^IFV

Can you use Tide Pods in the 9500HKA washer?

Asked by: ValL
Yes, pods may be used with this machine. The pod should be placed directly in the tub of the unit. Due to this machine being a high efficiency unit, the pods work best on hot or warm water cycles. The warmer water ensures the outside of the pod is completely dissolved. If the coating of the pod does not dissolve fully, this may result in detergent residue on your clothing and/or possible issues with the draining system of the machine.

I want to buy the LG LG SIGNATURE 5.8 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Washer, Model # WM9500HKA with the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, Model # WD205CK and stack an LG Dryer on top. Is that possible? And if so what's the total height?

Asked by: curious washer
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG SIGNATURE 5.8 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Washer, Model # WM9500HKA is not a stackable washer. If you look at the design of this washer, it has a lid on the top front under which s the detergent dispenser. Had this been a stackable model, you would not have been able to stack a dryer on top of it while it has the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, Model # WD205CK installed under it or the LG Laundry Pedestal, Model # WDP5K. Not only would it the height be too tall and unstable, but that would also be too much weight. The washer weighs 239 lbs. and the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer weighs 105 lbs...^IFV

Does LG have plans to come out with a white in the 5.8 capacity washer? Thank you,  Ann

How do I make the tub light stay on far longer on my new LG Signature 9500 front load washer. Same issue with matching dryer. Lights go out before I finish processing the items for removal or when I'm loading and the size of the tubs really require light!

Asked by: eeincc
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The Drum Light is designed to activate automatically when the door is opened. The manual activation of the Drum Light, using the EXTRA RINSE button, is for use during the wash cycle. The Light is designed to turn off automatically after 4 minutes. There are no options available to change these times.

The washer's locked door light keeps blinking! Can't open door!

Asked by: Cath C
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. If the temperature of the interior of the drum is greater than 113 degrees, then the lock is designed to remain engaged. It is suggested to press the door back into place to see if this releases the latch. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional suggestions.

do any LG front load washers have a Fresh Hold feature or a large detergent reservoir for automatic dispensing? Thanks

Asked by: kerdesigns
The "Fresh Hold" feature is a feature used by another brand of washing machine and is not a feature used by LG Washing machines. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG SIGNATURE 5.8 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Washer, Model # WM9500HKA has a four-compartment dispenser makes it easy to separate the pre-wash detergent, main laundry detergent, liquid bleach, and fabric softener into different compartments. If using a liquid detergent, you would need to make sure that the liquid detergent cup is in place, and if using a powdered detergent, you would need to remove the liquid detergent cup and put the powder in the main wash detergent compartment...^IFV
