What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Washes well, super wrinkles We’ve had this for a year and a half now and while I love that it’s one machine that washes abd fries, we have not been able to figure out how to NOT have excessively wrinkled clothes. Guessing this is why it was discontinued. Wish LG would figure out a way to problem solve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not working in less than a year It was great while it was working. Drain pump went out right before the biggest winter storm in southern history. Now I can’t wash clothes at home or in an laundromat. I haven’t had it a year and it’s already getting serviced.

I'm curious about the WM3997HWA All-in-One. Although it is advertised to be "ventless", can it be vented. We're considering this for an install in Colorado and the space it will be located in will have a conventional dryer vent.

My clothes are really wrinkled after drying, I have tried doing small loads and trying to take them out right after the machine finishes the dry cycle but it is too hot, is there a setting to just tumble dry clothes after the drying cycle?

Asked by: Twee
Press the “Power” button!  Load wet clothes!  Press “Dry” button and close  dryer door!  Dryer button is best in normal position!  Dryer will sense approximate time!  Place Spin Speed to “No Spin” position and activate with >|| button!  Machine will highlight drying time in digital display!
