Rated 2 out of 5 by from A pain in the neck to use but it is gorgeous This washer/dryer combo is beautiful and is great for washing large items. However for my typical laundry (cotton tshirts, underwear, nice jeans) I am still trying to figure out how to make it work as well as my previous washer/dryer combo. I with the typical loads I always use cold water and dry at low heat. (I learned many years ago not to put my jeans in the dryer because they will shrink in length over time so I line dry them.) I was surprised to find that the only preset wash program that is suitable for my tshirts and tops is the delicate cycle as it is the only one that allows you to choose cold water. I am still trying to figure out the best Spin choice that will not leave the clothes too wet but not compress them so much that wrinkles are set in. As far as drying the tshirts and tops it falls far short of my older unit that this one replaced. First, NONE of the preset drying programs allow me to choose low heat; I have to use the app to download a Very Delicate program, and I would prefer not to have to use the app - I should be able to make choices in the presets for such a common usage. Second, my previous dryer offered a cool-down period with every heat level that tumbled the load with air only for about 10 minutes before declaring the load to be done. When I pulled the clothes out of the dryer they were unwrinkled and cool to the touch. This dryer has no such feature and even drying on low heat my clothes come out wrinkled; I need to experiment with setting different dry levels but I think that would just result in my clothes coming out damp. The Wrinkle Guard feature helps with not having to take the clothes out immediately but it doesn't make the wrinkles not appear in the first place. My biggest complaint is the amount of time it takes to dry out all of the gaskets to the washer's door after using it. Not only does the inside of the door and the outside of the biggest gasket have to be dried, but great care must be taken to dry the folds of the gasket in the door - there are two of them, and my fingers plus drying towel barely fit in the innermost fold. AND the door must be left open which pretty much makes the unit not compact with respect to the space it takes up. I only dried the inside of the door and the outer gasket plus leaving the door ajar the first couple of times I used it and that was not enough to keep it from having a strong mildew smell. So now I know that I need to schedule an extra 5-10 minutes to dry the washer after finishing the day's wash. Related is the filter at the bottom of the washer which apparently will need to be drained on a regular basis. This is the first time I've seen this in a washer and it is not an easy task. The little hose the comes out isn't long enough so to drain it I have to get a very shallow pan that is large enough to catch all the water or I'll have a wet floor. Another extra maintenance chore is the need to run a washer clean cycle. The manual says to do this once a month but I question whether I need to do it that often as I am a small household of one and I wonder if that frequency would be the same as for a large family. I really don't want to have to do this as I live in a drought prone area and my household water comes from a rainwater collection system. I've never had to do this with a previous washing machine and it seems like a huge waste of water to me. To sum up, my problems with this machine are: 1. The necessity to use the app to accomplish routine tasks 2. Lack of dryer choices which minimize wrinkles in the preset tasks 3. Lack of a cool down cycle (that I can find) with any dryer program 4. Washing machine should not have so much residual water which I have to clean out myself to avoid mildew 5. Washing machine should not need to be washed out on a regular basis (waste of water and electricity for hot water) and the filter should be easier to empty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Outdid Themselves This Time My LG Tower is the best washer and dryer that I've ever purchased. I don't think it can get better than this. I guess I could wish for a place inside the washer to store laundry detergent and dispense when washing as needed. The washer communicates the settings with the dryer, so all you have to do is start the dryer. I must warn you this unit is very heavy, which is good to prevent the unit from being tipped over. I'm not a big fan of the download settings, but that is just me. I do it on occasion
