What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer Great washer bought about 3 month ago very easy to use I have many other LG products and I am very happy with LG thanks for all of your products and great people who work at LG.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not what I thought it will be I have this washer for about over a year already. It uses very limited water but I am not convinced it cleanse out the laundry well. I have to get extra rinse to make sure it get soap out of the clothes well. I have to empty the drain spout every time I wash for the fear that the water that was not totally drained by the machine will leak out on the floor. This happened several times. Even though I clean the machine each month for soap scum, I don't take chances for the water to spill out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appears to be a very good machine I am not an expert on washers and have only my OLD one to compare but ithe new one uses much less water and electricity, gets the cloths clean and is much quieter. Also faster per load and larger loads - how can you beat that.

I have this washing machine and need the matching dryer. What's the model no. of the matching dryer?

Asked by: Anja
The matching dryer for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HWA was the LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity SteamDryer™, Model # DLEX4070W (Electric) or Model # DLGX4071W (Gas). Both the washer and dryer are now discontinued products, but the washer can be matched with any of the current 27" Stackable LG Front Loading Electric Dryers, ( Models: DLE3180W, and DLE3170W, ) or the current 27" Stackable LG Front Loading Gas Dryers, ( Models: DLG3181W and the DLG3171W)...^IFV

Can you stack the WM4070_A washer with a DLHX4072 dryer?

Asked by: kkramirez
Although both the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with EcoHybrid™ Technology, Model # DLHX4072W and the LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HWA are stackable, the WM4070HWA has a depth of 28 2/5" and the DLHX4072W has a depth of 39" so it will not stack onto the WM4070HWA...^IFV

can a dlgx4071 dryer be stacked on top of a wm407hwa washer?

Asked by: ktmterry
No. This unit is too tall. The dryer would fit next to it.

Are there any accessories to raise the washer besides the drawer (like extended legs)?

We have a sloped ceiling above our washer, so I don't want to purchase the drawer to raise the washer, because then I couldn't put anything above it. However, without the drawer it is very low and difficult to load, so I would like to know if there are extendable legs to purchase. Otherwise I will need to build a small platform.
Asked by: SudburyGal
Hello SudburyGal. The only accessory that we have that will help to raise the LG 4.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam™ Technology, Model # WM4070HWA higher is the pedestal which would add another 13 3/5”. A Platform may be the best way for you to go about it...^IFV
