What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best washing machine! My husband purchased this and I have to say, he did great! This is the best washing machine I have used. There's a setting for pretty much anything you'd like to wash and the clothes, bedding even rugs came out so clean and soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clothes come clean I had first purchased a the new GE washer it was a joke would not dispense the detergent. Exchange for the LG I should have made it my first purchase. I have lots of dog laundry so I sanitize most loads. Love how clean the clothes dog bedding and towels are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue resolved, working good now. After breaking down after about 10 wash cycles and waiting around 2 weeks to get it fixed it's working great. The rubber seal between the door and tub twisted and was leaking but did get fixed. It was quite a hassle though getting the parts and the technician to get it fixed. Overall not bad and like the size. It can handle big loads.

Which way does the door open on washer and dryer set. Which side does the washing machine sit on ?

Asked by: JackGough
Hello JackGough. The door on the ENERGY STAR® Certified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HWA is a left swing door (i.e. swings from right to left) so it will sit on the left side. The doors on its matching dryers, the LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Electric Dryer w/ Steam™ Technology, Model # DLEX8100W or the Gas Dryer, Model # DLGX8101W are also shipped as left swing doors but they are reversible and the doors swing can be changed to a right swing...^IFV

Are you able to use Pods for the detergent?

Asked by: Britt26
Yes, pods may be used with this machine. The pod should be placed directly in the tub of the unit. Due to this machine being a high efficiency unit, the pods work best on hot or warm water cycles. The warmer water ensures the outside of the pod is completely dissolved. If the coating of the pod does not dissolve fully, this may result in detergent residue on your clothing and/or possible issues with the draining system of the machine.
