Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

This thing is incredible

Submitted by TrixieM - 7/18/2019

I recently moved into a condo with no outside vent. I spent so much time doing research and reading reviews trying to find the perfect appliance for the space. I was worried about getting this because many people complain about it taking too long to dry your clothes. I used to live in another condo where I had a conventional washer/dryer and the dryer hose was hooked up to a little bucketthat was just awfulthere was lint everywhere and the floor and walls would get wet. It was gross. Ultimately I decided to get this and Im so happy that I did Yes it takes a bit longer than a conventional washer/dryer but I love that I dont worry about putting my clothes in the dryer once the washer is done. Im probably doing 2-3 more loads a week than I did previously but its worth it in my opinion. If you follow the instructions i.e. dont overload it you will be very happy with it too

Laundry Processing Unit

Submitted by Knotaboyscout - 6/21/2019

This is the second one I have owned. Yes I bought it a second time. The first one got left behind in a real estate transaction. Do not think of this as a Washer Dryer. It is a Laundry Processing Unit. This new one works better than the older model and gets things dryer. Once this unit teaches you how it want you to do laundry you will be thrilled with it. Keep an open mind. You do not have to switch wet laundry to the dryer. You can leave and set it on delay to be finishing up when you return. When it finishes pull clothing out one article at a time give it three shakes and it is very dry. I would recommend this product with the caveat that you keep an open mind as it does not work like a conventional side-by-side set.

Great Michine We love it.

Submitted by Daniel 2 - 6/19/2019

We needed a new washer / dryer that took up less space and this is the one. I read about this type of machine many years ago being used in Europe so I knew something about them. My wife just found out about them one night when she was looking at washers on the internet. I checked it out and was sold. Love all the functions that this washer / dryer has so many settings. Washer does a great job but the dry times take a little getting used to. Were learning. Over all we love it. A lot more quite then our old washer and it uses a lot less water.

Great big capacity machine for a small space

Submitted by BeachGranny - 6/14/2019

I bought this machine after months of agonizing over the reviews. I am thrilled with my results. I have washed a set of queen sheets with additional light weight shirts and everything was dry. I have actually switched the dryer selection to damp dry. I read in a review to simply shake in article of clothing that seems damp something about surface moisture and the item will suddenly be dry. Well it really does work I read to not fully load the washer for best drying results but in my household of 2 I am able to wash sheets towels and all items of clothing for a week in only 5 loads while still separating by weight and color.

Best replacement for my condo.

Submitted by Bev17 - 6/7/2019

Live in 55 and over condo and I was unable to open of the stackable unit due shoulder problems...also too high. The size was perfect the designated area. I love that the controls are at perfect height. I had NO instructions on use of the unit...the company I purchased from is family owned and been in business manymany years. Technician came ...no help. He called your factory without help. My first problem was the clothes were so HOT at the end of the cycle I could not touch them....no one had an answer...I now leave door open to the laundry area and it is better. I cannot set the spin on permanent press on lo or medium speed...and high spin is loud and shakes hard. Slacks and blouses that have been washed and dried before ..no wrinkles...now many are wrinkled. I am mainly concerned No help...they donot seem to know enough about the washer/dryer. Overall I will keep working and solve my by myself because I like the concept.

Works for us

Submitted by Kleisha - 5/31/2019

Im glad I bought this. I was hesitant because some people complained their clothes didnt dry. I didnt have that problem whatsoever. I live in the hot dry desert Tucson AZ so maybe that helps? I also make sure to remove the lint after every wash. It does take longer for laundry. Approximately 3.5 hours per load average. I just make sure to stay on top of it. Its definitely dries faster than the clothesline I had been using and Is more pleasant to use then lugging clothes to the laundry mat. It both cleans and dries clothes well for me.

Great space saver

Submitted by sue419 - 5/31/2019

From a traditional two machine history this combo machine does not meet my expectations. I do not like one load to take 2 - 3 hours to complete. Clothes still come out damp even after adding additional drying time. There is a learning curve. I do like the fact that space is saved with one machine.

Great option for small spaces

Submitted by Zeus7 - 5/5/2019

Great option for small spaces but make sure you have a sturdy floor because the vibrations are intense. For us living in a third floor condo unit makes it really hard to let it spin the way it should because the whole building shakes. If we were on a bottom floor or if we could reinforce the floor it sits on it may lessen the vibrations but for now we will deal with it. I just wont spin on extra high. Overall this has been a great option and meets our needs. Yes it takes a long time to dry but ill take that over lack of space any time. The washer cycle is fast and our clothes come out nice and clean I complain about cleaning the lint from the dryer cycle. Its hard to wipe it off and I wish it was easier to collect. I dont mind wiping it if I figured out what to use instead. I do my best but somehow theres still some lint trapped. My husband complains about the heat vent. It is right behind the cold water inlet causing condensation on the cold water pipe. Avoid putting this washer in a humid environment because it may add to the condensation problem. If you dont use the spin feature for drying it gets really hot.

Certainly Different

Submitted by Joe054 - 4/29/2019

My wife and I purchase this washer and dryer combo back in 2/19 at our local Lowes unfortunately it was on back order for a month so we didnt get it delivered until 3/19 so we where a little upset but it was really worth the wait. This combo is really extraordinary with all of the unique features. What we love about it is you put your items in to wash set which wash and dry cycle you want add detergent and fabric softener press start button leave to go out return and your items are completely done. No more having two appliances where you have to move items from washer to dryer. Also what I like about was the setup just hook it up the way you would a washer no special dryer outlet or plug attachment and no dryer hose or vent to install.

Submitted by Hyde29 - 4/11/2019

Its a good machine however not the best for large households or people that dont take the time to operate the machine properly. Since its a washer dryer all in one preventive maintenance is needed often. To wash dry a load takes much much longer than your standard front load machines. If you need to do more than one load at a time definitely not the best choice for you.

Great for small spaces

Submitted by sc151535 - 4/6/2019

I purchased this all-in-one washer/dryer combo about 6 months ago and think its great I primarily wanted a space-saving solution for a small laundry area and this ended up being perfect without sacrificing efficiency. I knew from some online research that smaller loads of similar items were best prior to my first wash but it still took some a couple loads to figure out the sweet spot during my first few washes jeans would be extremely wrung out and shirts would be wrinkly. Now that I have a feel for it its not a problem any more. It does take a little longer but you also dont need to worry about moving clothes over to the dryer in between you can set it and forget it. I didnt quite know what to expect with a ventless drying system but it seems to work great. Its a bit humid when you open the door so the clothes seem damp but once the air is released and you pull it out you realize its dry. I clean the gasket after every load Ive found it easiest to use a wet wipe or a damp cleaning cloth to run around it and pick up all the lint and the drain pump filter every month and things seem to be working smoothly. I should note that I live in a two-person household so were probably not doing as much laundry as a family probably would smaller loads arent a problem.

Drain pump issues

Submitted by Wp6257 - 4/5/2019

Wanted to really love this and when it works its great. I have just replaced my 4th drain pump in 3 years. The first one went out not even 6 months into owning this machine which was covered by warranty. I follow all care and maintenance outlined in the manual and clean the lower filter where drain pump is located after every load.

Love this

Submitted by Shanda Lear - 4/3/2019

We bought our set almost 2 years ago and for the most part we really appreciate it. It does take some getting used to and figuring out what works best for your clothes. I see a lot of people who are upset because the clothes are damp when they come out but that dries quickly and usually works best as far as wrinkles. Smoothing the material out removes the majority of them and hanging the clothes for a few minutes works as well. It requires very little detergent and fabric softener is un necessary. If they could just make a drain pump that lasts more than a year this would be a 5 star piece of equipment.

I really like having the combo washer/dryer in one. Its very quiet and the large capacity is great Im still learning how to use the dryer as I cant seem to get everything to dry the first run. Other than that Im very please with this appliance.

Happy LG Customer since the new LG Direct Drive

Submitted by futurist - 3/17/2019

LG 4.3-cu ft Ventless Combination Washer and Dryer with Steam Cycle MODEL:WM3997HA Ive been a happy LG customer since the introduction of the LG Direct Drive washers. Over the years we have had several LG washers and dryer sets due to your coming out with the red sets that have worked great. My favorite dryer feature is the Wrinkle Guard button. Since Ive been a long time LG fan I was excited when I saw that LG had come out with another innovative product the LG Washer / Dryer machine. I expected that a corporation that makes heat pumps seeing the opportunity to incorporate heat pump technology into a laundry dryer machine would be awesome. Unfortunately Ive been very disappointed with this machine. No Wrinkle Guard button: Disappointment began when I saw that there wasnt a Wrinkle Guard button among the plethora of multitudinous buttons. Theoretically this machine has wrinkle guard if you hold the button down for three seconds this does not work. The setting will engage but it does not function as a wrinkle guard. The machine tumbles but the interior is so hot that it just irons the wrinkles into the laundry. Even towels come out very wrinkled and they also smell bad sort of like melted plastic. No lint filter: Where does the lint go? It accumulates on the gasket around the inside of the door. Not a handy thing if you are trying to remove laundry quickly so it wont wrinkle any worse. If you dont wipe the gasket off before removing the laundry the lint will attach to the laundry as you are trying to quickly remove it before it wrinkles. Balance: True BalanceAnti Vibration System. Although we have adjusted the feet multiple times the machine continues to bang loudly when it starts to spin. The machine is on a cement floor so the floor isnt the issue. Sometimes it bounces around so much we wonder if well have to chase it down the street. Noise: There is a very annoying continuous high pitch whine the whole time the machine is running. Settings: Ive tried numerous settings trying to get it to work but so far no. Towels done on the Towel setting come out smelling bad due to excessive heat as well as wrinkled and damp. Energy Saving: I cant understand how this machine could possibly save energy when the cycles take so long to run. Six hours to wash and dry is a long time for a machine to run. This new LG machine is not the time saving innovative machine that I was expecting it to be. I have finally gone to setting the water temp on tap spin wont go below high soil is usually medium and the dry temp Wow. Temp is a very big problem. Its almost impossible to get to the LOW setting and even if you get the setting to show LOW the laundry still comes out hot. I am now taking the laundry out while its damp and hanging up it to dry. The concept is a good one unfortunately the implementation is very bad. I hope that when the LG Engineers come up with the new software or hardware that is needed to make this the awesome machine that it could be that they will provide the update to their customers as a warranty repair.

Drying

Submitted by Jacquesy - 3/11/2019

No matter how little clothes we put in for drying they still came out soaking wet. We had checked out and nothing was wrong with the machine. We cant return it because it was a mark down. So were stuck with this machine. Dont get me wrong the washing machine is great.

Great Spacesaver

Submitted by cb537200 - 2/28/2019

I purchased this combined washer/dryer to gain extra space to add additional water treatment equipment in our home. That mission was successful. The machine worked well for several months but then abruptly would not drain water. We had to replace a pump on a machine that was not a year old. My bad for purchasing a scratch and dent machine:

Would not buy

Submitted by Stupedme - 2/9/2019

Have owned it since 3/16. There was a learning curve thought we could live with it. With in the year it would not start up when pushing the start button. Tried many one line technologies to start it and some worked for a time or two. If we let it set for a few months unplugged we could some times get it to start and then it would work for 5-10 cycles and then go on vacation again. It can only dry a very small load and some cottons just wont dry. I t was just easier to go to the basement and use the old washer and dryer.

Love the compact nature

Submitted by DJKS - 2/2/2019

Purchased this to save space and to see if it would be a good option in a future tiny home. I dont love it. The lint is a problem I generally have to vacuum it off of the door and seal between each use and the drain will clog and rather than a reminder to clean the filter before using the machine an error message pops up half way through the cycle at which point it is tough to clean the filter without flooding the room. I feel like the clean is as good as my separate LG washer/dryers. I miss the fluffy feature of an air dryer. For what it is it works well its just very different.

When it is -35 below you learn your machine :

Submitted by The Box - 2/1/2019

We had this unit for 2 weeks and we just finished our small cabin in the Great State of MN.. We researched this product because of our small foot print at the cabin.We are happywe moved the drain down to help with the water extraction and it worked. During the wash/dry cycle when it changes to the dry cycle we open the draining tube to remove excess water. Thus the items come out dry But the sweet news the issue with the lint in the door gasket really a pain to clean out if hot or cold. So as we are finishing the tile work and using a tile sponge I assisted my wife by cutting a 1x4 section to help her gather the lint.It was amazing ... she could clean the inner / outer parts of the gasket with ease. So give this a try for the lint Closing this machine is not your moms or grandmothers machine you have to think outside the box and understand it

Solid machine but not perfect.

Submitted by RED25 - 1/24/2019

We have owned this LG washer/dryer combo for 6 months now. We have the LG stand and not the sidekick. We love the larger capacity the space savings and convenience of this combo machine. The cost of this machine is the same as buying a quality washer dryer but that was expected as this machine does both. There is no vent requirement so the machine can be placed almost anywhere. Our only real complaint is that there is no dedicated lint trap. The lint collects around the opening of the machine along the rubber seal and is a pain to clean off. We have tried when the lint is damp and when it has dried still a pain to collect from the rubber surface. If you do not clean it periodically some of the lint will end up on your clothes. If LG could solve this issue it would make this a great product.

Love My Washer Dryer Combo

Submitted by sunshinecountry - 1/21/2019

This machine more than meets my expectations. Have washed/ dried multiple types of laundry. Takes about 3 hours to do a load. My only challenge is the length of tubing for draining the filter. All the pics I have seen shows the tubing to be about 12-15 inches. Can only pull mine out about 6 inches. Not sure why.

Love this washer.

Submitted by joes51 - 1/21/2019

I bought this after having a top loader built in 1995 and after taking it apart to scrap discovered it was a fire waiting to happen lint everywhere. Good riddance. I disagree with the drain recommendations . I went straight down to a drain from the machine and it highly improved drying and humidity issues. I also pipe wrapped the cold water inlet above the vent and that stopped condensation. Like all front loaders keeping it clean and dry is a must. I have had no issues with smell. A little pricey but the I didnt have much choice with the room I had. I think I made a great choice.

Submitted by Pam4912 - 1/15/2019

I am really glad I bought this all in one. I did a lot of research and knew that I was going to have a learning curve. This is different than ordinary washers. It does take longer to dry but I was prepared for that. It does a great job I can wash heavy rugs as well as dedicates. I wanted a smaller foot print and it has worked very well for me.

Ventless Drying

Submitted by Washndry - 1/4/2019

I bought this two months ago as I live in a condo and needed a ventless dryer but wanted a full size washer and dryer but did not have space for both. This machine provided my solution. It does do a very good job of washing and drying as long as you dont put to large of a load for drying. I can wash and dry a decent size load with no problems. I also love the fact that I dont have to get down on my knees to get clothes out of a stackable.

I love virtually everything about it I put the clothes in dirty and a couple of hours later take them out clean and dry. It does everything but fold them and put them away. I also love the lighted tub and the little song that plays when it finishes.

Works great but...

Submitted by Djaytch99 - 12/31/2018

We bought this machine about 3 weeks ago and after installation which was straightforward we did a few washes a came to the conclusion that it would work well for us. The trick is to experiment to find the options which work best for your usage patterns. We are 3 adults in an apartment and with its minimal footprint has enabled us to open up the rest of the area for storage. Unfortunately we have a machine which for no apparent reason leaks water from the left hand side. What is weird is that it is not during a wash cycle but in one instance after 3 days of inactivity. I do note that some of these reviews mention the drain hose needs to be at a low level otherwise water cannot be efficiently expelled. I confess I did not see that in the install notes but maybe it has something to do with the leaks. SO we called Costco and they are replacing the unit - thanks Costco - and we hope to report the end of the troubles in a future post.

compact design. all in one

Submitted by riannom - 12/28/2018

I live in a small condo so space is at a premium. This washer/dryer combo saved me some much needed headroom and I could put stacking cubes above it to take advantage of the space freed up by my previous laundry center. Pros: wash and dry without having to change machines I can put laundry in it and come back later in the day to find it dry and ready to stow away. It also is ventless it does vent a bit of heat but doesnt require a dryer exhaust pipe. Cons: it takes a lot longer. maybe 3-3.5 hours for wash and dry cycle. I also cant wash a batch and dry a batch simultaneously like I could with a separate washer and dryer. I knew a lot of these things going into the purchase as I had done a lot of reading on the Internet so knowing this I am perfectly fine with this purchase. My hope is that it lasts a long time but I guess Ill find that out along its lifetime...

Space saver. Not much plumbing required

Submitted by KiranK - 12/22/2018

This unit has all required Settings for a light soiled to heavy soiled cloths. The installation took less than 2hrs. As there is no separate drying unit this saves lot of space. Dryer is working fine as long as the drum is not filled fully. 5shirts 3 pants and inner wear took around 3hrs of total wash and dry cycle. Over all happy with the outcome so far.

Uncomplicated Purchase

Submitted by JJ2001 - 12/21/2018

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and am not sure I prefer it over the traditional washer and dryer 2 separate pieces I think i have just about figured out the wash cycles but No Where NEAR figuring out the drying process It runs Forever and clothes are STILL not dry And I Do use the spin cycle as directed in the manual. I have started just timing the dryer and hanging the clothes up in the house to finish drying It also leaves lint on dark clothes even though I DO separate them During the first week I tried live chatting to get some advice but both people I talked with seemed to have No Clue what I was even referring to For the price and aggravation of trying to figure this thing out I almost wish I had kept my old washer and just had the heating element replaced in my old dryer Its nice but I guess its just not what I expected
