What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unacceptably noisy and exterior showing wear Our old washer broke, and we needed to purchase a compact one because the space wouldn't fit a full-sized one. I had read from Consumer Reports that this model has a lot of vibration, but an appliance repairman strongly suggested LG because of its reliability. I regret this purchase. We made sure to level it appropriately, but the extra-high spin cycle is totally unusable, producing nearly 70dBA of noise. The white exterior finish is already showing signs of wear (we've only had the machine for about 6 months). We're a household of 2 adults, so it's not as if we're hard on our appliance. It also doesn't clean particularly well, although that's not a big problem since we are not very messy (but don't expect stains on your napkins to come out). The issues are bad enough that I sometimes wish I had spent nearly double the money for a different product (which received better ratings for vibration and cleaning).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine for an apartment We have owned this machine over a year and absolutely love it. We got the condensing dryer as well. It does an amazing job and is quiet. We live in a small apartment and I built a closet area to stack the 2 machines.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You will spend more time washing the washer There is a reason why top loading washers were invented and this machine is it. If you want mold washed into your laundry, buy this one. The soap drawer has to be removed and cleaned frequently; when you remove the drawer, look into the space it came out of and you will see mold in all the little tracks and crannies in there too; water, lint and pet hair get trapped between the rubber gasket and the machine rim so water trickles out during the cycles and the machine smells unless it is left open all the time - and sometimes even then - and the door sitting open gets in the way of everything else. I cannot WAIT TO GET RID OF THIS ANNOYING MACHINE. The only nice thing about it is the charming little tune it plays when the cycle is finished but that doesn't make me want to keep it.

The machine stop working half way during the normal cycle at 34 minutes. The motor was still running but the minutes remain..I had to stop it and use the spin and drain cycle to get the water out. What cause that to happen?

I'd like to buy the nearest equivalent of the WM1388HW in The Netherlands (for 220V service). Can you tell me what the model number of that nearest equivalent would be?

Asked by: pathiel05
Hello pathiel05. Regrettably, our offices in the U.S. will only have information for products that are released in the U.S. and will not have information for products that are released in the Netherlands or in other countries. Model numbers also tend to vary according to the country that they are released in. There is only one version of the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24” Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW that we have in the U.S. so if this model or a similar model was released in the Netherlands, it would be the only unit they have and would probably have the same features and be designed for use in the Netherlands. You can search their site to see if they have this model or a similar model available and compare the specifications...^IFV

WM1388HW washer - Does anyone know if you can wash a lightweight queen size quilt in this washer?

Asked by: SusieP
