What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My wife and I have used the washer and dryer since 2013 with not a single problem except that some how the dryer and now recently each device got child locked and after getting in contact with your great service staff via telephone the problem was quickly resolved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over all I’m very happy with this machine I’ve owned this washer for many years now. It’s a workhorse and holds a large amount of laundry. I wash King sized comforters with zero issue. I use the extra hot sanitizing feature all the time - I love it! Two weeks ago, I was doing a load and heard the cycle finish. When I went to open the door, smoke came billowing out. A repair person came out to assess the issue, but that’s as far as we have come as we are still waiting to LG to tell us what will happen next.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE SERVICE AGREEMENTS FOR THE LG PRODUCTS. I HAD A FIVE YEAR SERVICE AGREEMENT AND THE WASHER AND DRYER NEEDED SERVICE AND IT WAS NOT COVERED FOR THE DRYER. I AM TRULY DISAPPOINTED AND SADDENED FOR THE SERVICE. THE WASHER WAS DONE BUT NOTHING FOR THE DRYER. MONEY WASTED THAT I COULD HAVE USED FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

After the wash cycle is complete, we leave the front door ajar (slightly) to air out the washer (to prevent mildew). During this time water drips from the front door on to the floor. What part(s) need to be replaced to fix this.  The washer is 4yrs old.

 Can you safely  and efficiently and wash a queen size comforter in this machine 

Asked by: VLCS
The general consensus of most Washing Machine buying guides is that a capacity of 3.2 cubic feet will accommodate a queen size and a capacity of 3.7 cubic feet will accommodate a king size comforter, so the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8000HWA has a large enough capacity to accommodate a queen size comforter comfortably. Not all comforters require the same care. A home washer and dryer may be able to handle a thin comforter, but a thick, fluffy comforter may require special cleaning. Review the washing instructions on your queen-size comforter, as some may be made of special fabric or filling that requires dry cleaning or other special care...^IFV

I have what appears to be mold growing behind a clear plastic barrier that runs around the drum. This is behind the gasket. Anyway to clean it without having it serviced?

Can you use oxy-clean powder in the prewash 

Asked by: Cowgirl24
The manufacturer recommends the use of a liquid or powdered High Efficiency (HE) detergent in the appropriate detergent cup in order for the unit to be able to dispense the detergent and other additives at the appropriate time during the wash cycle. It is recommended to only use additives labeled specifically for HE washing machines.

What does UE mean

Asked by: Charina
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. The UE Error message is designed as an alert that the load is UN-EVEN or unbalanced. If this is occurring, and balancing or redistributing the load does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The different cycle temperatures listed are approximate: COLD – 77 degrees F; WARM – 104 degrees F; HOT – 122 degrees F; EXTRA HOT – 158 degrees F. The TAP COLD setting allows the water to be whatever temperature is presented at the faucet.

I just bought your mega washer and notice it washes with less water than normal washer Can we make it use more water if we need to  Thank you

Asked by: alal555
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. All of our High Efficiency washing machines are designed to use far less water (13-15 gallons) than a traditional top load washer (60 gallons). This model is not designed with an Extra Water feature, other than the PREWASH and EXTRA RINSE features.
