What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! I've had the complete set with the washing machine pedestal, and couldn't be more impressed! Easy user interface, great design, love how well this washing machine cleans and performs. The dryer has a steam option and I couldn't believe how much I use it to freshen up items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great but too much plastic LG WM9500HKA Washer We have had this set for over 3 months now. The extra large capacity is great. You will wash fewer loads. A queen size comforter, sheets and mattress protector all fit in one load. You measure your detergent, fabric softener and bleach for each load. I like that feature rather than filling up compartments and counting on it to know what you are putting in the laundry. There is also an extra place for pre-wash detergent. Our washer was delivered dented by Costco so I negotiated a credit. You will need to leave the washer door open and wipe it dry after use. It is also best not to leave clothes in the washer overnight. This will help prevent mold. So far it smells great. We are happy so far. With all of the cheap plastic parts, it will only be so long until they break. They should have used metal on the doors, lock and cover. Pros: Easy operation. Washes great. Towels are extra soft – “IF” you add an extra rinse to the Towel cycle. Extra Large Capacity. Cons: Plastic locking mechanism on doors (very cheap; doesn’t always close tight on first try) – it rattles on spinning. Sliding plastic cover on top is plastic and flimsy and receives a lot of use (your soap, bleach and softener go underneath). Plastic door – you need to be very careful when opening. None of the cycles have pre-wash or extra rinse integrated. You have to use each cycle as is and then manually change it before each load. There is no way to customize a cycle and have it stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully This washer cleans clothes great. Love the 5.8 cu ft capacity means I don’t have to wash as many loads. Makes my life so much easier. I got the plain pedestal and I love the height. The controls are easy to understand and work. This is so much better than my previous front loader brand. This is the perfect Front loader washing machine and capacity for me. I tell all my friends. Cleans well whether a large load or a smaller one. Vibration is next to nonexistent. So happy with my decision to buy this washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gigantic I purchased this washer with the matching gas dryer and sidekick pedestals, it's gigantic and very easy to use not to mention beautiful !! I washed my king size comforters all the bedding in the house and all the laundry in one single day now I don't know what to do with all this spare time !!!! LG didn't send a manual for this awesome problem oh did I mention it's very quiet while operating...and it's at the PERFECT height so I'm not laying on the floor to load & unload ! Happy camper thank you LG

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased so far! Only have had this for 1 week, and everything is good so far. Suggest that you are prepared for some help installing this big boy because it is HEAVY! I guess over 200 lbs. Beautiful finish, and eliminates the "dial" that is found on other LG washer models. Love the on-the-door controls. Suggest that you please READ INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS if you install it yourself. It has 4 bolts on the back used to stabilize the unit while in transit, that you MUST remove before you use it. Also suggest that you get some stabilization pads to place under all 4 legs to keep it perfectly level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features but I got this product 1 month ago. It has good features but if the buttons are touched slightly while the machine is going on, it completely restarts. That means the machine will not pause and run where it is in the middle of the cycle. It will have to be started from the initial wash point. That is not very good in terms of water and electricity used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG now 2 for 2 What is up with the design team at LG. Now on my second LG inside of 3 years. My first a WM8000HVA front loader went bad in 2 years - bearings failed, under low usage. Had extended warrantee bought out machine, still cost me hundreds of dollars. I got this model supposedly with heavier bearings. Did a rinse cycle and on the spin grinding noise started coming from the rear, sounds like the bearings were not polished properly, or there is debris in them, the machine has a hard time balancing with a light load, medium load, or heavy load, often not spinning out the clothing. I took the time to make sure it is stable and level. It shakes like crazy when trying to spin, the door bangs against the front walls of the washer. The machine vibrates like crazy, the floor vibrates like mad, I am sure I am going to be popping sheet-rock screws on the ceiling and walls below it.

can I build a counter top over this washer and dryer, and still access the soap dispenser?

Asked by: ck21
As long as you build the counter top with the fact that you do have to have access to the dispenser to add products you should have no problem.
