What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice washer! After a few weeks we are quite happy with this LG washer but only time will tell as to the long term quality. The numerous features it has are nice for different types of laundry loads. The one drawback we had was connecting it to our WiFi. The instructions were incorrect because the included password was wrong. Thanks to google and YouTube we were able to connect to our WiFi quickly. The correct password is actually the last four digits of the washer’s network entered two times. It’s very convenient knowing how much longer the cycle will take or when it’s done by using the app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many features Consumer reports rated LG as the top three front load washers. The model I bought (WM3500CW )was rated #2 of the top three. I can see why !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from like it so far...but! Delivered 2 days ago. 12/4/2019. Control Panel has a black background with white letters and difficult to see without a flashlight or if you do not have perfect vision! My previous Samsung has a black background but has a backlight with no issue of seeing the panel. This needs to be improved for those with less than perfect vision. The cycles are long. I actually love this washer so far. I would like to choose temp and time for load to be washed. My previous washer had a quick cycle of 38 minutes which I used nearly every time except for the steam cycle to sanitize. I often used a second rinse if I was washing bedding or towels usually always cold water. The liquid detergent container does leave water in it after cycle. So far I am wiping it dry. I hope to get many years of service. I bought this as a matter of necessity and did not research. my daughter owns a LG with no maintenance issues. Salesman also personally prefer LG, thus my purchase. Don't know how to use the wi-fi as I am not tech savvy. I can see where this could be helpful for a diagnosis but not sure if I can use it. Will not be using the Wi-fi to do laundry. I am a bit old fashioned as I want to be there when and while my clothes wash. My previous machine leaked water 3 x/s before I made this purchase, so I prefer to be around during the washing of clothes...

What are the wash times

Asked by: Washer1517
Cycle times for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Front Load Washer, Model # WM35000CW will depend on several factors such as the load size, incoming water pressure, and your chosen options. Each cycle has default settings that are selected automatically and the washer automatically adjusts the water level for the type and size of your wash load. The settings can be customized using the cycle modifier buttons. When a cycle is selected, the default time for that cycle is displayed. This time will change as modifiers or options are selected. Once the Start/Pause button is pressed, the washer will measure the size of the load. The estimated time may change once the load size has been measured. The time shown is only an estimate. This time is based on normal operating conditions. Several external factors (load size, room temperature, incoming water temperature, etc.) can affect the actual time...^IFV

Is there a clean out on this washer like a lint filter
