What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this after our other one died and I just love all the features and the fact that I can wash my king size blankets now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from efficient and quiet I've only used the machine a few times and am very happy with it so far. It is very quiet compared to the top loader I had. My only complaint is I wish the bottom line of the front display panel would light up. I have to use a flashlight see it. No setting for darks either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look forward to doing laundry! What an upgrade this has been. Not only is this set ease on the eyes, but it is easy to use and I'm not sure what it says about me, but I truly do enjoy doing laundry with these machines. The capacity size allows for much larger (and thus fewer) loads, and when they are finished washing/drying they sing the sweetest little song to let you know. There are features I haven't gotten to test out yet, but I highly recommend this set - Love, love love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LG Washer Overall quite sound, great performance. Dowside water gets stuck in the plastic cover of the door and tends to smell so you need to wipe it in every wash and keep the door open to dry out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features Love the features on my new LG washer. So many options to choose from. I especially am enjoying the big tub. This is my first LG washer and I am thourghly enjoying it. Love doing the clothes now. The music it playes. when the clothes are finishedid so nice to here. All in all I give it a 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade! I replaced a top load washer with this, and now our clothes seem brighter, cleaner, and softer. The large size is great with young kinds. I love the high temp allergine cycle for bedding, which helps with my dust mite allergy. Also, a king sized comforter fits! My wife particularly loves the hand wash cycle for her home-knitted goods. It is very quiet and easy to operate, and the only feature it lacks for us is a reversible door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer Got this about a month ago and have tried it with a lot of different loads. The washer cleans well, leaves my clothes dryer than other washers (less time in the dryer) and is faster than my old washer.

On our current LG top loader, about 5years old, I use the eco warm option on some loads. I am looking at the WM8100HVA and I didn’t see that water temp option in the specs.

Asked by: Beth3g
The ECO WARM feature on your washer was designed to be a setting between the WARM and TAP COLD temperatures. It provides the benefits of a warm wash while using less energy. The water will be in the neighborhood of 90°F. On the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA, the warm setting is at 90°F...^IFV

In the specs for WM8100HVA washer it is stated that the controls are mounted on the door. I believe that is wrong since all photos show the controls mounted above the door on cabinet

Asked by: HawaiianTime
The description that us given for the controls on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA is "On-Door Electronic Control Panel with LED Display" which is terminlogy that is used to describe that the controls are above the door. YTou are correct, the controls are not on the door...^IFV

What is the height of the washer and dryer with the stacking kit

Asked by: Yanni
The dryer stacked on the washing machine with no pedestal would be about 86.5" depending on how you adjust the washing machine legs for leveling. ^AC

What is the total height of the WM8100HVA / DLEX8100V with optional pedestals WDP5V? What clearance is required above the units?

Asked by: jas00
Hi JAS00. You can stack the LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Electric Dryer w/ Steam™ Technology, Model # DLEX8100V onto the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA using the LG Stacking Kit, Model # KSTK2 and the total height will be 82 1/20". You can stack either unit on the 29" LG Laundry Pedestal, Model # WDP5V which has a height of 13 9/10". When the DLEX8100V is stacked onto the pedestal, the total height will be 54 7/10" and when the WM8100HVA is stacked onto the pedestal, the total height will be 55 3/20". You cannot install the pedestal under a stacked washer/dryer. Not only would that be unstable and dangerously high, but it would put the dryer controls out of reach and that would also be too much weight on the pedestal...^IFV
