    Really do love it!

    I am very happy with this washer/dryer! I love the big drum, it holds a regular full load of clothes, the only cons I have are that it takes a very long time to do a load of laundry, average between 3-4 hours for one load, but you can set it and go do whatever you need to do and come back to it. I do love the remote start, I use this feature quite a bit. It does produce a lot of lint because it is ventless, but that is not that big of a deal. You just need to wipe around the rubber seal on the door to remove it after each load. Overall, I am very pleased with it. It does clean your clothes very well. Very easy to use.

    LG All in One Washer Dryer

    I got this LG All in One Washer Dryer because of the limited space in my Townhouse. I got this unit to replace an old Kenmore stacked washer dryer, all in one. I really hated the Kenmore because for me, the only way to plug in the 240V plug, hook up the washer hoses and vent tubing, was to climb over the top of that tall stacked unit and go down the other side. My washer space is inside of my bathroom and the space is super tight. When the Kenmore finally bit the dust, I told myself, no more climbing over anything for me, so I decided to get this LG unit, which is short and more manageable. It does not use a 240V plug but rather a regular 120V three pronged plug, which is roughly about 5 feet long, which is a good length. With this and hooking the LG up with a pair of 6 foot water intake hoses and no vent tubing, I am able to slide the entire machine out from the space that it occupies. Now no more climbing over anything to hook up new hoses or cleaning the back of the unit.

    Performance wise, it's best feature is when it comes to washing. This unit is basically like any LG side loading washer and gets clothes pretty clean and the spin cycle on this unit is so good that your clothes come out almost dry. Which is great for me because I like to hang my shirts up on a rack under the ceiling fan and a Vornado fan hitting it as well, while in my apartment. During a warm Hawaiian day, hanged cotton tee shirts dry in only a half an hour after coming out of a high speed spin cycle from this unit. If you researched this unit, you will find that a Ventless dryer is way slower than a vented dryer when it comes to drying times. This unit has a full sized capacity for washing but if you intend to dry anything in it, you have to take out enough clothing so the unit is only half full. Anything more and you're going to be waiting for a long time for your clothes to get dried. Also, through research, I found there are a lot of complaints that this type of units water pump does not completely pump out all of the water into the drain. This sort of hampers drying time because there's so much left over water in the unit, especially before drying. Because of my washing and drying practice, I usually wash clothes and do not set it to the wash and dry all in one cycle. When I wash my clothes, I set it for a wash cycle only and when it stops, I open up the unit and start sorting out the clothes that I want to hang up and dry on a rack and keep the clothes I want to dry in the unit. With the clothes I want to dry in the unit, I will take everything out and make sure everything is not tangled and re stack it nicely back in the unit. Then I'll set it to dry on manual timer for an hour and de-activate the spin cycle preceding the dry cycle. Usually the amount of clothes I dry in the unit is a little above the 1/4 way mark. Before I dry, I open up the drain pump plug on the bottom left side of the unit, and drain out any water that's inside the water pump. Make sure you have a pan to drain the water and be prepared to stop the flow of water with the screw in plug if you use a shallow pan. More than likely, there's going to be more water than you expected in the water pump area. After everything is drained, I turn on the dryer. I could be crazy but I really think there is a difference on how dry your clothes will get when you drain out the water from the water pump area. They say that you should drain out the water and clean out the filter as regular maintenance after 1 week. If you see how much water is setting in the unit after every wash or even a drying cycle, you'd be hard pressed to maintain the drain maintenance after every wash you do. That much water left inside the unit after a wash has got to contribute to the Stinky washer effect. There have been complaints that since the spin cycle is super high speed, a lot of vibrations and jumping around has occurred with other users of this unit. My washer area floor is pretty solid and I made sure I used a level on it when when adjusting the 4 legs. When Best Buy delivered it, I didn't buy the set up service and I did the hook myself. To me, getting the unit really level is the key for good performance. If you set it on the floor and it kind of rocks side to side like mine did, you need to make sure you make the adjustments to the legs so it is completely level. For me, I put some small furniture sliders under the 4 legs because this would make it easier to pull out of its space on a vinyl tiled floor. This prevents the metal legs from scratching my floor. The rubber on the top part of the sliders acts like vibration shock absorbers also. At extra high spin cycle, my unit is super quiet and there are no vibrations at all. I can really see how there are horror stories about this unit jumping around so violently that neighbors will be complaining. If your floor is not solid, you need to throw a piece of ply wood or something to make it solid and make sure it is as level as you can get it. This will prevent a lot of grief. Other things that are different from my old Kenmore stacked all in one unit are: No lint trap, any lint will accumulate on the glass section of the door and around the rubber gasket area. Also, after use, you need to keep the door cracked open so the inside of the drum area will have air circulation and this will prevent it from getting moldy and stinky. If I just wash clothes and don't dry anything, I just make sure I wipe the inside of the drum and door with a micro fiber cloth to get most of the moisture out, because it's going to be pretty damp in there. If you use the dryer after your wash cycle, the drum and door area will be bone dry so I just take a damp cloth and try to wipe out any lint that has accumulated on the door and rubber seals. Another thing that you need to watch for is build up in the detergent tray every once in a while. After every wash there's a lot of water in the detergent tray area so I take out the tray and make sure to shake out any excess water in there as well. Also, you need to get those washing machine cleaning tablets and use that with the tub clean function of this machine at least every 1 month if you do heavy washing. To me, a top loading washer has less headaches to worry about. My biggest pet peeve is that this washer/dryer unit's instructions are all made for a regular LG side loading washer. You can look on the LG website for the instructions and it will be the same thing. There are no instructions for using the dryer function on this unit, which is pretty irritating too me. I had to look at Youtube vids on how to operate the smaller LG model to get some idea how the dryer side of this unit operates. Once you actually operate the dryer its pretty easy but I'd wish there were at least some direction on how to operate the dryer side. Another pet peeve I have is that you have to nicely stack your clothing, with the heavier clothes on the bottom and the lighter clothing on the top. If you don't do this, your clothes won't wash properly. Gone are the days where I just threw in clothes into a top loader any way I wanted. This unit is kind of quirky but it works for me. Do a I recommend this type of unit for large families? No way. For large families, get separate washer and dryer units, with the dryer being a vented one. This unit is made more for 1 or 2 people who don't intend on washing and drying every day. I live alone so my wash load is not really a large amount so I don't really mind going through all of these extra steps. So far, this unit was everything I expected it to be and nothing more. I researched it before buying it so I knew what I was getting into. Only time will tell but if I can get at least 10 years out of this unit, I'll be satisfied.

    Very Improved, But Get The Service Plan

    This is the second washer dryer combo I've owned. The first one was also made by LG but sold under a different label. The quality difference shows --- it is worth getting the LG branded model, and while the convenience of this machine is very useful, I would only get it if it's on sale and with the GeekSquad service plan. In the case of the washer-dryer combo, service plan or a home warranty is an absolute requirement.

    So far, though, this machine seems to be a way higher quality than my last one.

    The WiFi / App features of this model are really very useful, as is the cleaning cycle. One downside is you can't force the drum light to stay on in this model.

    Most washer/dryer combos have the tradeoff that dry times are really long, because they're all ventless, so the water is literally removed and fed out of the drain pump. This unit has dramatically improved this from my last one --- my old one sometimes ran for 5 hours with one load, while this one usually only takes 2 or 3. It's just a decision you have to make for yourself, if the convenience of not having to move the laundry from the washer to the dryer is worth waiting a little extra time.

    While you do still need to clean the lint with a baby wipe off the glass window and plastic inlay, this model also seems to be way better than older versions in reducing that problem as well.

    The best combo machine right now on the market

    I'm really now living doing laundry. This machine it's been working flawlessly. I just have to say that if you follow the instructions, you will be really please with it. I was concerned about maybe not drying really well, but I found out that it all depends on how much load you put in it. If you want your clothes to come out completely dry, then make sure the drum is halfway full, so that way the clothes have some space to move around during the drying cycle. I also wish that the instruction that come with it where more clear on how to set up the drying functions and also explainin all the special features on the panel. I was able to find a full manual online where everything is explained in detail. I also got the sidekick washer to go with it and it's the perfect combination.

    Best Buy is wrong!

    The product does NOT need a vent or an extra 220 power cord. Best Buy will force you to include these for an online order. Make sure to have them deleted.

    It’s great to not have to change clothes to dry

    This is a great piece of machinery! I do find it irksome that one has to remember to press dry if you want to wash and dry a load. Also there are some settings when selected that pressing dry does not work. Reading comments - I have not experienced any smells coming from the machine. I’m very happy with this purchase.

    Don’t believe the naysayers

    There are downsides to any stand alone washer and dryer too and although I was nervous due to all the negative posts it’s worked out great for me. It does take a long time to wash and dry but if you throw a load in on the way to work it will be done by the time you get home, if you need wash quick this is not the setup for you but if you want to come back and it’s done then it’s awesome

    Because of lack of vent this does lead to chino pants needing an ironing before wearing but overall it’s not that deep compared to other setups for small spaces that cost at least double

    Wrinkled Mess

    I purchased this all and one unit for my apartment. Everything was was fine. I realize this is different technology and everything is good except the clothes are a wrinkled mess. I have to iron or steam everything that comes out of this drying cycle. I am having them pick this up and finding another solution. What a waste of time as I travel for work.

    A solid choice, saves space, and supposedly energy

    A solid combo, run loads a bit more frequently than you're used to with a traditional washer and you'll be set. Only fill about halfway, most loads will be fine with a 3 hour dry but if you throw in a towel or the like I suggest using the sense dry feature or fire and forget on a higher time setting. Half might sound lame but half of this unit is the same as the full practical capacity of the janky old topload units I was used to so absolutely no sweat for me.

    Perfect Combo Washer & Dryer for small space

    I needed to get a washer and dryer for a small space and did not want to do stackable for additional storage. It looks great and cleans and drys so well. It take longer to run through cycle but totally worth for the tiny space it have.

    Requires a slight change in mindset

    When I first selected this unit I was a bit stunned that the cycles took so long (over 5 hours!) until I realized that with the "wrinkle shield" function I am no longer tethered to the "time to wash clothes" chain the way I was before. There is no need to move the load from one machine to another. You can load it, set a time to start, and then GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE. The app will notifiy when you it is all done, and if that is while you are sleeping or not at home, the wrinkle shield will just do it's thing until you get a chance to unload it. Plus, the machine is so QUIET. Doing a load while sleeping in the next room is no problem. The gurgle from the drain is probably the loudest it gets, and that is not much.

    The coronavirus "only drop it at your loading dock" delivery was BS, though. Arranging for disposal of the previous appliance was a PITA.
