How do i open washer to put liquid detergent in?

Asked by: Arloween
If you look at the image for the Front Load Washer / Dryer Combo, Model # WM3998HW, you will notice a drawer in the top left corner of the unit with the LG logo on it. That is the Detergent Dispenser Drawer that is a four-compartment drawer that provides separate dispensers for prewash and main wash detergent, liquid bleach, and liquid fabric softener. Simply pull it pout to open it and pour your liquid detergent into it. When using liquid detergent, make sure the liquid detergent cup and insert are in place. Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Never exceed the manufacturer’s recommendations when adding detergent. Using too much detergent can result in detergent buildup in clothing and the washer...^IFV

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
