What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Blessing I converted my rec room into a 1-bdrm ADA compliant age-in-place apartment for myself and wanted small scale, high quality appliances. Bought this in 2015 as the perfect design for my space available. As many others have said, washing is great. Drying is a nightmare and has cost several thousands of USD due to total failure of "lint trap" design. The first year I kept the lint trap clean but the lint wasn't caught there. It washed down the drain, clog it, and the whole kitchen flooded. But not before both the primary and secondary pumps burned out. Since then I've had to use mesh lint filters on the drain hose. Despite replacing filters frequently, the drain can still overflow, and has done so on 2 more occasions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So much lint WTF??? Every time I dry a load it comes out covered in lint. I’ve tried cleaning the lint out of the machine with a rag like the directions suggest, but it’s trapped in areas that I can’t get to... Whoever designed this product should be fired.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mediocre and Breaks Down Repeatedly When it works I have to run the dry cycle multiple times on relatively light loads to go things dry. I've also had it break down the separate times and need repairs.

Dryer fills with water and doesn’t dry clothes I spin it to remove water and when put to dry it fills with water again. Dryer does get hot but doesn’t dry because clothes are soaking wet.

HOW many watts dose this run on for use with a generator 

Asked by: Marc1234567
Hi Marc1234567. The requested information will be on the nameplate attached to the motor for the LG Front Load Washer / Dryer Combo, Model # WM3987HW as is required NEMA, the National Electrical Manufacturer's Association which specfies that every motor nameplate must show specific items which will include the rated volts and full load amps, amongst other specs. Regrettably, we do not have access to this information nor is it listed in the specifications nor the owner's manual for the dryer. However, you can get an estimate by multiplying the rated voltage and amperage listed (i.e. 120 V x 12 A) for the power which is expressed as wattage (1,440 watts or 1.44 kW). If you need a more acurate number, please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000. You will also need to know what the startup or surge wattage is which will be considerably higher than the running wattage for a few seconds until the motor starts...^IFV
