Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great capacity I've had my washer almost 7 years and we have been pleased. I had to start doing the maintenance to keep the musty smell down. I also had to get a service call because the water level sensor was malfunctioning. It is now working properly.

Washer is stuck on DEL1, how do we resolve this issue?

Asked by: NBP1
The dE1 error code indicates that the washer's door is open and not locked. The error code may look like dE1,del or dEL on your unit's display. To fix this: unplug the washer for 10 seconds. Plug the washer back in, ensure that the door is completely closed, and restart the cycle. If the dE1 error code persists, close the water taps; and unplug the washer. The unit will require a repair service. This may be done through our website: http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/schedule-repair-us or for a list of service centers in your area: https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/find-repair-provider

My washer smells musty. I have tried the tub clean feature but it doesn't help. Any suggestios?

Asked by: SMS2
Sorry to hear you are having issues with your machine. Below you will find directions on performing consecutive tub clean to rid your machine of buildup that may be causing the odor issue. If this does not resolve the issue, you may need to contact a service center to have the machine professionally cleaned. Detailed instructions on the required routine maintenance for your machine are located in your owner’s manual to prevent the issue from reoccurring in the future. ^AC Washing Machine Cleaners: Tide Washing Machine Cleaner or Affresh 1. Follow Directions on Washing Machine Cleaner (Due to the amount of buildup you may double the tablets on the 1st Cycle) and do 3 Tub Clean Cycles in a Row 2. Use 2 Tablespoons of detergent maximum for a heavy load and 1 Tablespoon for normal loads 3. If you must use fabric softener, use very small amounts and dilute with water before putting in dispenser

can I wash a queen sized polyester fill comforter in my LG front load washer model WM3050CW

Asked by: laundry engineer
Washing Machine buying guides advise that a capacity of 3.4 cubic feet or larger will accommodate most queen size comforters depending on their fluffiness. As indicated in the title description, this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.0 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3050CW has a capacity of 4.0 cubic feet which should accommodate most queen sized comforters and even some king-sized comforters. When loading the comforter into the machine, you shouldn't have to stuff it in and it will need room to tumble freely for an efficient wash performance so the comforter should only fill 3/4 of the wash tub...^IFV

I have a washer (Model WM3050CW) that is about 3 or 4 years old. We want to buy an LG dryer that would stack on top of the washer -- I understand that I will need a Stacking Kit (KSTK1) but, since it's an older washer, can I find a dryer to match? Thanks

Asked by: RobertHall
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine and its compatible products. Would a GAS or ELECTRIC dryer be needed for this installation? It is recommended to check our website, http://www.lg.com/us/dryers, for matching 27” dryers.
