Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and easy to use We bought this washer over a month ago. I was hesitant on spending so much but it was worth every penny. I love the all of the features and cleaning options this machine provides. It is quite and so far has been easy to maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO QUIET! I LOVE these machines! I bought this washer/dryer twin set hoping they would live up to my expectations since I have owned LG kitchen appliances for the past 5 years. The washer and dryer exceeded my expectations - more quiet and efficient than I even imagined they would be. Laundry looks better than it ever has in about 1/3 of the time of my old set. I am in laundry heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG washer WM8100 I bought this LG washer a few weeks ago for its quality and capacity and to have a front loader to save water . As the other LG model was a little less expensive and smaller , I thought in this investment to buy the larger capacity one since I was already spending quit a chunk of money as I was buying also at the same time the LG dryer as well. I wanted to be able to wash larger items at home and not having to go to the laundrymat just for large items like king size bed comforter cover , and king size mattress cover and such. The machine is very quit , very powerful , have lots of different washing programs , easy to use and look just great . I am very happy with it .

Does the WM8100HVA or WM8100HWA have the "custom program" feature? I want to be able to select a frequently used cycle + options, then save them to the custom program feature. If anyone has this washer, can you confirm if it has this feature?

Asked by: JimDalTx
Hi JimDalTx. Regrettably, neither color of the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100H*A features 'Custom Program'...^IFV

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
