Answer: 
This machine does not have any venting. It does not exhaust dryer air. It uses condensation drying instead, which is exhausted through the water drain.

• Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are not
recommended.
• Never install the washer on a platform or weakly
supported structure. Use only an approved
accessory pedestal as described below.
NOTE: Please note that the floor must be strong
and rigid enough to support the weight of the
washer when fully loaded, without flexing or
bouncing. If your floor has too much flex in it,
you may need to reinforce it to make it more
rigid. A floor that is adequate for a top-loading
washer may not be rigid enough for a frontloading
washer due to the difference in the spin
speed and direction. If the floor is not solid, your
washer may vibrate and you may hear and feel
the vibration throughout your house.
NOTE: Before installing the
washer, make sure the floor is
clean, dry and free of dust, dirt,
water and oils so the washer feet
can not slide easily. Leveling
feet that can move or slide on the floor can
contribute to excess vibration and noise due to
poor contact with the floor.

Answer: 
Yes, it is possible to perform a WASH ONLY, or a DRY ONLY, as well as a WASH & DRY cycle. There are some wash cycles that do not allow a dry cycle. For other cycles, simply do not use the DRY dial/button and no DRY cycle will activate. For a DRY ONLY, after turning the machine on, do not set a wash cycle. Simply adjust the DRY controls, and the unit should perform a DRY ONLY Cycle.

A word of caution, if you have really hard water in your area, like me, the intake water valves can stick. So if you're getting wet cloths - not damp, wet and dripping - at the end of a cycle, look to the valves FIRST because a stuck valve means that you have water coming in during the dry cycle and no pump taking it out. It took us 5 tries and unnecessary replacement of several parts to figure this one out, so I thought I'd pass it on. It's a GREAT machine. A real workhorse. Read Less

Customer Reviews

2.3 cu. ft. Washer and Electric Ventless Dryer in White is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great RV Washer Dryer Unit I replaced my much smaller unit in our Motorhome with this model. It has four times the cycles and about a third size larger tub. Because this is a vent-less type dryer, it does take longer to dry the clothes and put humidity into the air. Clothes come out clean and overall I am very pleased with this washer dryer combination unit. It is very well built and can be programmed with extra cycles through a app on your android phone. Very useful function. Loads can also be tracked to inform you as to when it's time to clean the tub. Would have given five stars if the dryer was vented. Overall I love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glad to hear this has been discontinued. Probably because it is a HORRIBLE product. Have had no... Glad to hear this has been discontinued. Probably because it is a HORRIBLE product. Have had nothing but headaches. Machine cost me $2K and 2 years later, it does nothing but spit out error messages every time I try to use it. LG is NO help. Customer service gives you the runaround. Very dishonest. After many, many calls and many transfers, LG finally said they'd send out a local appliance repairman. Set up a date & time window. No show. Because LG never actually set it up. Beyond disappointed with LG and their customer service. My advice: Life's Good only if you AVOID buying any LG appliance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from VERY Noisy I can only have a combo unit in my house due to lack of space to put a separate dryer. I love this unit in theory because it allows me to have both (it is installed in my kitchen.) This washer works ok for washing clothes, but the drying feature is TERRIBLE. After having it for less than a year it has started making an incredibly loud vibrating noise that cycles on and off for the entirety of the 3-5 hour drying cycle. Since I have a small, open-floor plan house, you can hear this noise in every single room. We can't even hear the TV over the sound of the dryer, meaning all of the drying has to be done while at work or while sleeping (not convenient). [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Cramped for space? Want to save money? For the cost of separate washer and dryers you can just get this unit and save not only money but room as well. No stacking like some you see just one that does it all. In a hurry? There is a "Speed cycle" that does what it says. I would have given this a 5 star IF it were a top loader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy, but Read this First We bought our LG combination ventless washer/dryer, model WM3455HW, I think about 9 months ago as of February 2010. We are living full time in a 5th wheel rv, thus preferring a compact and ventless option that could run on the voltage and amperage limitations of our unit and the RV site connection. After reading all the reviews on the web regarding the other makes and models available, we decided on this model (Canadian version) and make. As you will find out in other reviews, you need to understand that this type of washer/dryer does not work like the conventional American dryer. We strongly suggest buying as extensive and extended a warranty as possible, since not every washer and dryer repairman will understand this unit. So far we have had no issues. You must install it on a solid floor, leveled, on top of a drain pan that comes out a few inches in front of and around the unit and is connected to a working drain, since you will be cleaning the drain pump filter at least twice a month. Even though the drain pump filter has a drain hose, the water comes out of the filter as well. The drain pump is located on the front of the unit, on the bottom left. Make sure the filter and hose are properly sealed. You also will need to clean around the door seal and the door glass after every load, since the unit does not have any other lint filter. We keep a box of non-alcoholic baby wipes nearby for this easy job, which is now as routine as setting the next wash. You can also "tub clean" the unit every month, per the instructions, which we have yet to do. The water inlet also has a filter that can be cleaned if you have hard water issues. Please understand that it may take 4 to 6 hours to wash and dry your one load of clothes. Some of this time can be shortened, since part of it is "cool down". "Cool Down" is automatic and it will periodically tumble for up to 4 hours, before then notifying you with a musical set of notes and unlocking the door. When the unit displays this message, press any key and it will stop the load and unlock the door, allowing access to your laundry. We suggest taking the load out soon after it reaches the start of "cool down". Please understand that this washer cannot handle the load of clothes you may shove into a commercial washing machine. When the start button is pressed, the washer weighs the load and calculates the wash time based on your wash preferences. The amount of time estimated will display, along with the weight. The capacity of the machine to wash clothes is twice the capacity to dry, so you will need to experiment with smaller loads until you find what works for you. The more clothes you load into it, the more wrinkled they may end up. We personally have found that the normal dry setting is too hot and cooks the wrinkles into the clothes to an extent I have never seen before, so we set all of our loads to "damp" or "low temp". We prefer the damp setting, and most of the time this, along with fabric softener, dries the clothes without wrinkling them as bad as normal. When you first open the unit and take the clothes out, the air will feel damp, but they will quickly dry completely out in a couple minutes (unless you overloaded the washer). I cannot remember the recommended load weight for this washer, but I think it is around 5-6 lbs, with 4 lbs as a normal load. Look it up, because I may be wrong. You will end up ironing or steam ironing everything that comes out of the unit if you don't dry with as low temperature as possible and take out the clothes as soon as the drying cycle is complete and the "cool down" cycle is starting. (Please note that if the temperature is too high in the unit, the unit will not unlock until it cools down). Now we are used to the extra work of steam ironing and are learning how to avoid most of that problem. Due to the small capacity, you will have to wash your laundry more often, perhaps every 2 to 3 days. I would recommend this washer/dryer for a couple or an individual, but not for a large family or someone who generates an undue amount of laundry. We can fit at least 2 pants, 2 shirts, 2 pairs of socks and underwear, and a few other items in the load at one time. Your load needs room to tumble, especially since this works with less water. Also note that you will need high efficiency detergent. You also need to use he fabric softener in almost every load to avoid excessive wrinkling. We also recommend setting your wash to finish before you go to bed, since you may or may not be able to hear the unit. Leveling is important, since this unit can be rather noisy while spinning. Having it thrash around due to too many clothes or an unlevel unit can eventually damage the unit (as can be the case with any washer or dryer). This unit has allowed us to have a washer and dryer in our small recreational vehicle, giving us the time back that we were losing at the local laundrymat. You can set the time you want the load to start washing, and you don't have to move it to a dryer for the load to dry...which also saves you time. (You will still have to wash your comforter and other large items in a commercial washing machine). We are pleased with the unit and are happy to recommend it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great, just understand what your buying this combo washer and dryer is pretty neat. it washes quick and good and drys pretty well. most of these negetive comments are from people who did not know what they bought. this is ventless drying that means yes it will take longer. large items dry but come out wrinkled because of the drying processes. cotton items come out great. this unit is for people without the space or ability to have a vent. buy additional warranty because the parts are not cheap. if you maintain this like one of your children you should have no issues. I love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems, problems, problems I am on my 2nd one of these machines (the first one was replaced by my service agreement after 14 months of trying to fix the machine - they replaced it with a new one). When they work well, they work amazing well!! Unfortunately, they are NOT designed to work well. I am thrilled that I bought a 5 year service agreement as it is clear I will need it. The problem with the way the machine is built is there is no way for the consumer to empty lint from within. Thus, it turns out it builds up within the machine. The result is that the machine stops drying when the lint builds up. I have this machine just over a year. Like with the previous one, at just over a year, I have had to call for service. When the tech came, he removed from the deepest parts of the machine a full cup of wet lint. This had stopped the machine from drying properly. I had to have a machine replaced a little over a year ago (same identical machine) due to the same problem but the service company could never figure this out and LG did not suggest this fix. The tech said this is the most common problem on these machines and that he sees a large number of service calls due to this. IF you buy, you MUST buy a service warranty! 3 Month later update: yet another day off from work! Same problem. No way to remove lint from the machine. Today - the drain pipe is clogged due to this problem. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE! Also - a had a family member stay with me a couple weeks ago. She saw the machine and indicated hers never dried. She has the same problem I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance in a small package. This washer/dryer combo is a great choice for anyone that wants, or needs, to be super efficient with limited space. I've had my washer/dryer for a couple of months now and I'm very pleased with the performance as well as the look. I replaced my Dishwasher with this unit and the installation was simple and easy. I was able to re-use the hot water connection that supplied the dishwasher and only needed to add a tee for the cold water supply. After reading some of the reviews for this model, I was prepared to be disappointed if the clothes were not completely dry but I've been pleasantly surprised! You certainly can't be in a hurry as the average load takes around 2 hours to complete, but I've found that if you leave the laundry in the machine for at least 30 minutes in the Cool Down cycle, everything comes out completely dry. I'm sure that if you loaded it to the max, you might not get the same results, but for me the size is perfect as I don't typically have that much laundry. Cotton, Permanent Press, Towels, even some heavily stained clothes that I used while performing a little landscaping have all been cleaned, and dried, surprisingly well. I'm very happy with this product and hope that it holds up for many years to come.
