What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features After 11 years my first LG died, so I bought another, smaller unit. Again I love the washer/dryer combo for space and the ventless, because. I've had the second one for a month and really like it. Only complaint on both is that they vibrate too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 years still running I still have it for 5 years and it still runs as brand new. The only problem was the drain pump. It was covered within 5years of warranty. Doesn’t dry good if you put lots of clothes

Why is it saying it takes 3 hours to dry a load? 

Asked by: MikiLor
The length of time a load takes to dry depends on how large the load is as well as the cycle and options selected. If you're in need of some guidance with using your unit, please head to our support page at @LGUSSupport on Twitter or you can give us a call at 800-243-0000 so a specialist can help out. ^CP

Is there any reason that this unit could not be installed outside, on a covered porch?

Asked by: bell99
Regrettably, without knowing what the environmental conditions are like in your area, we cannot determine if you are able to install the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HW outside in your porch. It is designed for indoor use where you have access to an appropriate electrical outlet which must be within 60 inches on either side of the unit and to a hot and cold water supply and a drain. We are only able to advise you on installations that are congruent with the instructions provided in the owner's manual and installations that are not covered in the owner's manual are not covered under warranty...^IFV

I ordered this unit & plan to hook it up to the bathtub.  (A platform is being built so that the machine will sit on the tub.)  I know we will need to purchase a converter for the water.  Do you have any other words of advice or direction for me?  Thanks!

Asked by: asuddock
There really isn't that much more that we can advise you on about connecting the LG 2.3 cu.ft. Compact All-In-One Washer/Dryer, Model # WM3488HS to your bathtub than what you have already assessed as being needed for proper installation. Without knowing how you will drain the unit, just keep in mind that the total height of the hose end should not exceed 96 inches from the bottom of the washer and you should consult with your local building inspector since the drain must be installed in accordance with any applicable local codes and regulations...^IFV

What does CD mean on the screen at end of drying cycle? And clothes were still slightly damp, why?

Asked by: Tony 71
A CD display indicates that the combo unit is in cool down mode. This is normal. When the drying cycle is complete the "CD" message displays. The cool down operation periodically tumbles (25 seconds every 5 minutes) the load with no heat to rearrange and fluff the clothing to avoid wrinkles for up to 4 hours The cool down cycle will continue either until a button is pressed to remove the clothes or until 4 hours have passed. If you are in need of any assistance, have additional questions, or would just like to see our helpful tips, check us out on Twitter @LGUSSupport Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LGUSA/ or you can give us a call at 800-243-0000. ^CP

This is going in my kitchen & will feed into my sink's drain. What is the diameter of your drain hose? I'm swapping out a small dishwasher drain pipe to accommodate the hose - what diameter PVC pipe do you recommend?

Asked by: AdamBit
That is exactly what i did, but my contractor did all the work. Do not have any numbets, but the machine is a perfect fit for the place dishwaher used to be in. Get a contractor and go for it! It will change your life!

Is this unit stackable? Specifically, could I stack a separate ventless LG dryer on top of this unit so as to provide additional drying capacity (and if so which model dryers would be suitable for stacking)?
