What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for 17 year old top loader Gets clothes much cleaner than my old machine, and much higher capacity. Some settings take much longer to wash, but a price I am willing to pay for cleaner clothes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice...but download doesn't work Washing machine works well, but I find it frustrating when a feature doesn't work that you paid for. I should be able to download different cycles onto this machine to use, but that feature apparently doesn't work in the United States. Seems like false advertising. I would recommend buying the cheaper model of this machine if you are considering it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaky Washer I purchased this washer one month ago and from the very beginning it has leaked from the door. Every third or fourth loud no matter what setting it is on there will be a slow drip down the front. If I use the Tub clean feature it always leaks with a steady stream of water. This being said it is still a great washer it is very quiet and has zero vibration during the spin cycle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replacement We purchased lg washer and dryer 6 years ago, and washer broke, believe it’s the motor, which has 10 year warr, but high cost to get estimate, label not included in motor replacement and if repaired only has 90 day warranty. So we decided to purchase new closet match, with a total 7 year warranty not from LG, not happy with washer breaking down so soon, only use about once every 2 weeks.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Great Washer It's been approx 4 weeks now and this washer, of course it's new, has not been a disappointing purchase! Time will tell but at this point and having utilized all of it's functions, it's GREAT! Our next purchase will be the matching DRYER!

 I am looking to purchase a stackable washer and dryer.  Is the LG washer WM5000HKA stackable?

Asked by: Amersaba
Hi Amersaba. The Energy Star® Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity w/ On-Door Control Panel & TurboWash® is only available in White, Model # WM5000HWA or in Graphite Steel, Model # WM5000HVA, ('HKA' would be a Black Stainless Steel and this washer is not available in that finish). The detergent dispenser for this washer is located on the upper front lip of the washer so you cannot stack a dryer on it. It is not a stackable unit...^IFV

What's the difference between this model and WM3770

Asked by: Wane
Hi Wayne. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash® Washer, Model # WM3770HVA, and the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboWash® Washer, Model # WM4370HVA, were released at the same time. The WM3770HVA does not have a Drain + Spin feature, so that is one of the differences in the washers.

I use vinegar instead of fabric softener.  The owners manual doesn’t mention not using vinegar.  Support on the LG website said vinegar can be used during tub or gasket cleaning.  Can I use vinegar regularly in the fabric softener dispenser?

Asked by: Missy1234
Yes, you sure can. ^AC

My manual and videos I’ve watched say that the NFC tag on feature is available. It looks like LG no longer provides the app. Does this mean this feature won’t work now?

Asked by: CoWoo
The LG Smart Laundry & DW App has been replaced with LG Smart ThinQ. Since your unit is not Wi-Fi, only NFC tag-on, you will only be able to use the NFC features within the app. ^AC
