What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rattles the whole house This washer vibrates extremely badly. Yes, the shipping bolts are out. Yes, we had an authorized repairman visit and he pretty much verified there is nothing particularly wrong...this is just the way these washers are. I have to spin everything on low cycle and the vibration is still very bad and it ups the drying cycle. Never again for a front load or an LG.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't get service Ever since we installed this washer, it has been noisy and vibrating. We leveled it every way and I spend a lot of time rearranging and reducing the loads in an effort to stop the noise. Called for service. It has been a month or more...NO SERVICE!!!. They can find no-one in my area. They want to do a video chat or phone call where I am the technician. I have no high speed service internet and Verizon is 1 bar here. These options won't work. I am also 67 with health issues. I don't consider this Service.

I see that the washer handles 2.3 cu ft. of laundry. Can you put that in laypersons terms? For example, how many regular sized bath towels can one wash at a time or how many queen-sized sheets can one wash at a time? The companion dryer? Thank you

Asked by: Pat4
Cubic feet is not a weight, it is a volume and there is no way to convert weight into volume. The LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24” Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW does not handle 2.3 cu. ft of laundry. It has a capacity of 2.3 cu. ft. similar to how a range oven has a capacity for the oven. A capacity of 2.3 cu.ft. will accommodate an estimated 12 lbs load. Towels can vary anywhere between 300 GSM and 900 GSM. The lower the number, the lighter and thinner the towel.GSM is short for grams per square meter. All fabrics have a weight, and the standard measurement for the weight and quality of fabrics (including towels) is grams per square meter. This number refers to the density of the towel. For instance: 300-400 GSM – In this weight, as noted, the towels are lighter and thinner. But, depending on its use, you might want a lower GSM for the gym towel or a kitchen towel. A lightweight, quicker-drying beach towel might be around 350 GSM, for instance. 400-600 GSM – This is a medium weight. This weight is great for beach towels, bath towels, guest towels and so forth. Each consecutive gram weight –400, 500, 600– gets a little heavier, and a little more absorbent. 600-900 GSM – This is a premium, luxury weight. The towel will be denser, heavier, more absorbent. It will probably take a little longer to dry. Other factors that will influence the towel’s softness and absorbency are: type of cotton, whether the manufacturer uses a polyester blend or whether the cotton is a single or double loop, and so on. Check the weights for your regular sized bath towels or queen-sized sheets to determine how many you can wash at a time given that the washer will accommodate up to 12 lbs. The matching dryer is designed to accommodate a full load from the washer. Since the washing capacity for washers is twice that for the drying capacity, dryers have almost twice the capacity that washers have. The matching dryer for this washer, is the LG 4.2 cu. ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W...^IFV

This washer and the matching dryer were delivered and installed by Best Buy a couple of days ago. They are both leveled on VidaXL pedestals on a tile floor. The washing machine moves about six inches forward on the spin cycle. How can we stop it?

This machine seem to vibrate and move alot is there something I can do

Asked by: Rick07
To prevent it from vibrating, the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24” Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW, your floor must be strong and rigid enough to support the weight of the washer, when fully loaded, without flexing or bouncing. If your floor has too much flex, you may need to reinforce it to make it more rigid. A floor that is adequate for a top-loading washer may not be rigid enough for a front loading washer, due to the difference in the spin speed and direction. If the floor is not solid, your washer may vibrate and you may hear and feel the vibration throughout your house. Before installing the washer, make sure the floor is clean, dry, and free of dust, dirt, water and oils so the washer feet can not slide easily. Leveling feet that can move or slide on the floor can contribute to excess vibration and noise due to poor contact with the floor. If a drip pan must be used, take extra care to follow the instructions provided with the drip pan and make sure the leveling feet are adjusted for a firm and even contact with the pan. Use of drip pans and failure to properly level the machine may result in increased vibration and noise during operation...^IFV

Asked by: Jagsz
You have to connect the cold water supply to both water inlets on the LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24” Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW if you are only intending to use cold water with the washer...^IFV
