Rated 5 out of 5Â by andyj2323 Great Washer dryer combo
Best purchase made in a long time. No more trips to laundromat. have to hang the clothes after drying for about a hr to feel completely dry that is the only drawback but that was expected buying a combo unit

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Guillo LG Washer/Dryer Combo - Ventless - 110 Volts
This unit is perfect for installations where a vent or a 220- volt outlet is not available. It washes superbly, dries well, with these caveats:
1) Although the unit is full-size, the dryer does not do
well with large loads.
2) Some items may have a small amount of moisture on
the surface when first removed--this goes away with a
couple of shakes of the item.
3) Condensation-based drying takes longer than normal
hot-air drying; however, the machine has a delay
feature that allows one to begin the cycle during the
night or early morning hours so that the clothes are
finished by morning.
Because one cannot overlap washing and drying, and because the dryer works best with small- or medium-sized loads, this appliance is not well suited for a large family.
Although my laundry room has a ceiling vent and a 220-volt outlet, neither is well-placed. When I had a standard washer and dryer, the run to the vent was so long and had so many turns that even with frequent cleaning my dryer did not dry well. This combination unit works perfectly for me.
One additional note: Because it doesn't have a vent , runs on 110 volts, and doesn't get as hot as a traditional dryer, I am comfortable leaving the house with it running... something I never did with my traditional dryer because of the fire risk.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by WatchItGoRound Good machine for the right person
This is a great machine, for the right person. The washer does an excellent job of cleaning clothes and there are plenty of settings. The dryer does take some extra time but it is not excessive, as other reviews state. If you simply read the directions and find what works best for you, you won't be disappointed. I suggest keeping loads small-medium size for best drying results and I most frequently use the "more" dry option.
It sounds strange but shaking out damp-feeling clothes actually does work! Sometimes the clothes will seem like they are still wet but a quick shake and they are completely dry.
I wouldn't recommend this machine for anyone with a family as only one load can be done at a time, taking ~3 hours. If you are single and willing to do small, fairly frequent loads of laundry, then this is for you! It is very convenient to put loads in and have them automatically washed and dried when you return.
The washer is easy to clean and builds up relatively little amounts of lint. A simple read-through of the directions will show you how to clean out the lint trap.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by oldprospector59 LG All in One Washer Dryer enhances my life
For thirteen years, I have had to go to the basement laundry twice a day or more. My arthritis worsened. With the renovation, I wanted to do the laundry in the kitchen. The stackable units took much more space and actually costs more. I never tire of explaining to visitors that it only uses cold water, 120 volts same as a dishwasher and uses only tablespoons of laundry product. Plus, they are amazed and amused at the pretty electronic song it sings.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SariK2014 I would recommend this machine (so far) to some people, but not all
I've only had the machine for a month, so may change my mind on a few issues. My first frustration has been with LG support. They are quick to respond, but their answers don't satisfy. I've had a couple of concerns. I purchased the portability kit with my machine so I could have it on wheels. It vibrated quite a lot which worried me as I felt the wheels might not stand up to the stress. I was told by LG that this machine should not be on wheels and that "True Balance" which the machine is supposed to have would not work if on wheels! Well, okay. I also asked why a "True Balance" machine had a "spin sense" option to which I did not get an answer. Also why a machine designed to go right into the dry cycle disables spin sense if dry is selected (this is not in manual, and I managed to discover it online). I admit these are relatively small issues... unless, of course the wheels give out. Washing and drying WITH spin sense is a two step procedure which I now do. I've also arranged a bumper system with Styrofoam around the machine which seems to dampen the vibration. My other question is WHAT ABOUT THE LINT? LG customer support repeatedly told me that you just clean the filter behind the door in the lower left corner of the unit, and that lint should not be a problem. You'll find a small amount of lint there (wet) but very little. I find that the lint in reality collects along the metal spines of the tub. After a wash with something like pet beds, for example, I can collect a handful just by wiping along the spines in the tub. Lint also collects in the door seal. If this isn't attended to, I have not idea where it really goes. Some reviewers on line talk about it collecting deep in the machine which LG denies. Having gotten all of that out of the way. I love the concept, I don't mind the longer drying times, the machine seems to do a good job. It's not going to be for everyone, but if it doesn't become a maintenance hassle, I would recommend it to someone with limited space who does small loads of laundry.
