What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Washer Ever! This washer is amazing, it's about 10x faster than my old one and it gets the job done well. Glad I made the switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and BIG This machine is amazing ... It has so much room for my California King Fluffy comforter ... Cleans great and has many cleaning options ... My bedroom is directly across from the laundry room and I never here the machine running ... I made a great choice ... Thank you LG 🙂

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Washer, But... The washer is an excellent upgrade from our 8 year old LG 4.5. Performs very well and loads of features. The Smart Home features and functionality is a Joke though. LG claims integration with Alexa, but don't expect much. The most important need is to tell you when it's started or when it's done and that is not possible via Alexa alone. You will need to perform some "Smart Home Gymnastics" via Smartthings, Hubitat, Home Assistant or the like to get it to do the most important function. LG does not offer any real type of Smart Home integration. That said, it is a really good washer.

We just got this washer and dryer on Tuesday.  Delivery included install and I was told to let the washer run through one cycle before use. I started washing clothes and everytime I open the washer when the load is done it snells like metal Advice please

Asked by: SimyCa
Hi, SimyCa! The metallic smell is normal for electrical wiring and is caused by the ozone that is a gas caused by electrical wiring. That ozone gas is the same ozone gas that protects the earth from harmful x-rays & gamma rays from the sun. ^Jolly

Does this washer have automatic detergent easy dispense feature

Asked by: Pedro73
Hello, Pedro73! Great question! This 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Load Washer with TurboWash® and Built-In Intelligence (WM8980HVA) has no easy dispense feature (ezDispense). Let us interest you with the 5.0 cu. ft.

Does this washer, model #WM8900HBA, have an internal heater? Thanks

Asked by: BootHillBaby
Hello there. The answer would be No. But forget about endless sorting or toggling through cycles—built-in sensors use AI technology to detect fabric texture, soil level, and load size, then automatically select the right wash motions, temperatures and more for advanced fabric care. `Jai.

I cannot seem to find the WM8980HVA in Graphite Steel. LG website lists it as a choice, but I don't find anyone who has it for sale. I would prefer it to the black.

Asked by: Color Choice WM8980HVA
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Front Load Washer with TurboWash® and Built-In Intelligence, Model # WM8980HVA is only offered in Graphite Steel. It is not available in Black which is why the specifications on our product detail page for the washer on our site list 'All Available Colors' as just Graphite Steel (i.e the "V" at the end of the model number between the "H" and the "A"). This washer is available at the Home Depot, BestBuy, Costco, and through several online sites...^Ivan

The washer read 9 minutes left and I walked away. Came back about 10 minutes later and it was still at 9 minutes. It kept washing for about another 15 minutes. My son washed a load today and it happened again at the 4 minute mark. 

Asked by: Moore765
The time shown on the display for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Front Load Washer with TurboWash® and Built-In Intelligence, Model # WM8900HBA is just an estimate. The time is based on normal operating conditions. Several external factors (load size, room temperature, incoming water temperature, etc.) can affect the actual time...^Ivan

I don't understand the real differences between this and the wm8100 model. Comparison feature of website doesn't seem helpful. Specs seem incomplete. Is there an internal water heater? Besides the wifi feature, what are the functional actual differences?

Asked by: Differences to 4100 model
All our Front Load washers that have an "H" in the model number feature an internal water heater that is designed to boost the hot water. To provide optimum washing performance, the hot water temperature for your water heater should be set at 120-135°F (48-57°C) and the cold at 60°F (15°C) and the water supply pressure must be between 20 psi and 120 psi (138–827 kPa). If the water supply pressure is more than 120 psi, a pressure-reducing valve must be installed. The "W" between the "H" and "A" in the model number for Model # WM8100HWA indicates that the washer has a white finish and the "B" between the "H" and the "A" Model # WM8900HBA indicates that the washer has a Black Steel finish. Model # WM8900HBA is a 2020 model and Model # WM8100HWA is a 2018 model. The comparison shows Model # WM8100HWA as having an IMEF (Integrated Modified Energy Factor) of 2.92 and shows Model # WM8900HBA as having an IMEFof 3.1. Model # WM8100HWA has an IWF(Integrated Water Factor) of 3.2 and Model # WM8900HBA has an IWF of 2.9. IWF is the number of gallons per cycle per cubic foot that the washer uses. The lower the water factor, the more efficient the washer is. Integrated Modified Energy Factor, IMEF, is the energy performance metric for ENERGY STAR certified residential clothes washer. A higher IMEF indicates better energy efficiency. The AI DD listed in the comparison for model # WM8900HBA is short for Artificial Intelligent Direct Drive™. Unlike normal washing machines, which only detect fabric weight, the LG ThinQ™ The front-load washing machine Model # WM8900HBA features Artificial Intelligent Direct Drive™ (AI DD) which detects not only the weight, but also senses the softness of fabric, and chooses the optimal motions for the fabric by itself. The comparison also shows that hot and cold water hoses are included accessories for Model # WM8100HWA and they are not included with Model # WM8900HBA. Other comparisons show that the washers have the same Wash/Rinse Temps, The same number of spin speeds, the same Max RPM, the same number of Soil Levels, and that Model # WM8900HBA has two more options than Model # WM8100HWA (Remote Start & Wi-Fi). Model # WM8100HWA has two more wash programs (see listed wash programs in comparison). Since Model # WM8900HBA is a Wi-Fi-enabled washer, it also features Energy Monitoring, Wi-Fi, Proactive Customer Care...^Ivan
