How long the machine take to wash a larg load?

Asked by: Victor04
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu.ft. MEGA Capacity w/ On-Door Control Panel & TurboWash®, Model # WM9000HWA takes variables such as the cycle selected, the load size, load weight, fabric type, fabric thickness, amount of suds, water temperature and more into account to determine the cycle time. These variables may extend the cycle duration as it may require more water, take more time to absorb the water or take longer to spin and dry. If you live in an area of hard water, mineral deposits from that hard water can build up in the inlet filters which slows the water as it fills the machine. The required water pressure is between 14.5 PSI and 116 PSI. If the water pressure to the unit is at the lower range of this range, it will take longer for the washer to fill. Added options like Water Plus which adds additional water will also extend the cycle time. It is normal for larger loads and loads made of heavier, thicker fabric types to extend the cycle time as they require more water and take longer to absorb the water and take longer to drain and spin. If the machine detects excessive suds in the washer, the Auto Suds Removal feature is activated and the washer will drain and add water to dilute the concentration of detergent. Each activation of this feature will add approximately 12 minutes to the cycle and it is possible for this feature to be activated multiple times within the same wash cycle...^IFV

Can you wash wool sweaters and coats with this washer?  If so how?

Asked by: HcmCA
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. It is first recommended to inspect the fabric care label on these items to check for recommended care. The NOTE sections in the owner’s manual make several indications of classifying WOOL garments as DELICATE materials, avoiding high temperatures and steam.

What setting do you recommend for waterproof items? My kids are very young so I frequently need to wash mattress covers. 

Asked by: Mindy18
We do not recommend washing waterproof items in the unit. This may cause abnormal vibration, or may cause the load to bounce, which could damage the tub. Please refer to page 20 of your owner's manual for further assistance.

Can you choose which side the door is on?

Asked by: Jamie1503
You can change which side opens. They come set to open with washer on your left, dryer right. The doors open so the wash is easily transferred from the open door of the washer to the open door of the dryer. The washer opens from right, dryer from left. But if you wanted, they do make it possible to change this.

How to use Tub clean

Asked by: Sesandberg
If you clean the washer tub regularly on a monthly basis, using the Tub Clean cycle, it will minimize the possibility that detergent residue will build up and that mildew or musty smells might occur. Add tub cleaner or lime scale remover into the detergent dispenser. Do not exceed the maximum detergent limit line when you add it. Detergent may remain in the washer tub after cleaning. When you use liquid chlorine bleach, load it into the liquid chlorine bleach compartment. When you use a powdered cleaner, pull out the liquid detergent cup and add it into the main wash detergent compartment. When you use cleaning tablets, place them directly into the washer tub. Do not add tablet cleaner to the dispenser tray. Press the POWER button. Turn the dial to Tub Clean. The tcL message will appear in the display. The indication light for Tub Clean will activate. Press the START/PAUSE button. Never load laundry while using Tub Clean. The laundry may be damaged. Make sure to clean the washer tub when it is empty. It is recommended to leave the door open after finishing the laundry to keep the tub clean. It is recommended that Tub Clean should be repeated monthly. If you notice mildew or musty smells, run the Tub Clean for 3 consecutive weeks.
