What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a gorgious machine I bought the LG Signature Washer and Dryer last month and I am extremely satisfied
Date published: 2017-09-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great capaciyt Bought a couple months ago, have washed every comforter in the house. Does a wonderful job. No complaints. I purchased with the matching dryer, needed something that could handle large loads and comforters. This does the job, no bunching or wrinkled comforters and does a good job on the clothes too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mix of features and capacity I have been using this washer for about 3 weeks and have washed just about everything it it, from sheets to comforters, towels to rugs, yoga wear to yard wear and it does a satisfactory job. The only un-level load error I recieved was with a heavy washable rug, but the washer would not finish the load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have ever had! Love this Washer! So many features that benefit my washing. Large capacity with great results on clothes. Instead of 8 loads to wash, I can now wash 5 loads instead with excellent results. I love the extra rinse cycle. I love the extra spin without the rinse. I love the speed wash for small load of clothes. My husband bought this for me, I would NEVER buy so fancy but it's worth every penny. Best husband who appreciates my hard work in washing clothes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD! BAD! BAD! These washers are the worst! If you buy make sure you buy extended warranty. You will need it. Been trying to get my washer fixed after having it for 6 months. 5 repairs later on the same thing it is out of warranty and have to pay 3\4 the price of washer to get it fixed. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A WASHING REVOLUTION For starters, I own the LG Model WM9000H*A. It features cold wash and turbo wash choices, and I've used both. In fact, I am a certified "dyed-in-the-wool" nerd. Every wash option has been viewed by me.. start to finish. Both wash and rinse technologies are quite impressive. I don't use fabric softener on my underwear, yet my T-Shirts come out of the dryer noticeably softer than they did with the washing machine this LG Washer replaced. Kudos to LG for a premium front loader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Washer Let me start off with Delivery and installation . Great technicians and Delivery. Trying to connect this to wifi really sucks took about an hour and a half to get the washer to connect to the LG app. There was lots of tiers and hair pulling out. Finally after a hour and a half it connected. Then it was time for the dryer. It's been about 18 hours of trying still it won't connect. I know I'll have to call tech support tomorrow. I really debated just returning them because of how frustrating it is. Lots of tears I mean a lot of them. There are no videos and search engine turns up with no help except everyone with the same problem as me. I decided after countless hours that I would just use the 5.8 washer."I'm so happy I did!" I washed two king fitted sheets two flat sheets and four king pillow cases. " Amazing " So easy and user friendly. They washed beautifully. Then time to dry them. Drying the double set of king sheets was amazing. "we all know fitted sheets ball and everything inside them is still wet." Not in this case everything was dry I mean everything.. I could not believe it this is amazing.. If you are looking for an amazing washer and dryer this is it . Look no further. If you are buying this to connect wifi run away.. you will be bald from tearing your hair out and you will cry just out of frustration.. LG should have waited to launch wifi until there app was complete. They really don't make it user friendly and I am a technical person. I understand computers And very Tech savvy. Needless to say at least the washer is connected to the app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient, effective. Check door opening I purchased this unit and had it delivered. First things first. It's big. In and out, check your depths, widths. It is a serious machine that will process the laundry. Also it works. The clothes seem to get very clean, even with our hard Texas water. The spin cycle seems to get a couple extra drips of water out that most machines would not. I like not having to run the dryer anymore than I have to and it works great with athletic gear that is challenging to dry. Downsides--The door mounts one way. We put the washer to the right of the dryer and cannot change the door mount from the left (drier side) to the right to avoid having to swing wet laundry out and around. Also the cycles don't seem to be customizable. I want an efficient cycle for work out gear where i use cold temp wash, high speed spin. I use this several times a week, but I can't get it to be the default or a "special" programmed cycle. Maybe I am not looking hard enough. Anyway, good out weighs the small issues and I would buy another one, but I would plan the water/drain hookups so that I didn't have the door issue!

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

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
