Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor after sale service I purchased my set on October 16 2018. I still do not have a working machine. The machine that was delivered has a defective pump. I have been approved , finally , for a replacement but am still waiting for it. Today is December 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Washer After my Previous LG died after 11 years of hearty service I bought this one after reading Consumer Report's reviews. It's a very capable washer with all the features one could want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working very well so far I've been running the washer for 3 weeks now and I find it performance to be excellent. Using less water and detergent and my clothes are cleaner. Only suggestion would to back light the control panel. Next, how long will it last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very beautiful &economical washer. A reliable product that is equivalent to the previous LG washer I had and used for many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big improvement over my old washer This replaces an ancient (~25 year old) top loading washer. It is much more efficient from both a water and detergent usage standpoint, so we are pleased. The door opening direction does not appear to be changeable, so in our laundry room configuration this creates an inconvenience. The digital panel on the upper right which both displays and and enables changes to the cycling settings, is not back-lit and is thus very tough to read. These are the only minor drawbacks I have noticed. All in all we are very happy with the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Great washing machine I purchased this washer about one month ago, and I am so happy with this choice. It is easy to use, washes the cloths beautifully, and spins the laundry so dry, they are in the dryer for half the time from my old washer. The customer representatives were helpful, and very nice! Thank you.

I have a 12 year old LG washer and dryer. The washer is broken. Could I use this washer to replace my old washer. The dimensions of washer that I need to replace is 27" depth, 27" width, height 38". Can replace with this washer, do I need a new stack?

Asked by: Gavins mom
Hi Gavins mom. Regrettably, without the model numbers for you older LG Washer and dryer, we cannot determine if your dryer can be stacked onto this ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Load Washer, Model # WM3500CW whose W x H x D dimensions are 27" x 39" x 30 1/4". From the dimensions that you have provided for your old washer, the depth of 27" is 3 1/4 inches less than that for the washer which infers that your older dryer may not fit onto the compatible 27" LG Stacking Kit, Model # KSTK1. The width is okay, but the depth is not. However, we will be able to verify that with the model numbers. You can replace the older washer with this washer, but you probably will not be able to stack the dryer onto the washer...^IFV
