Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TanyaT Major Problem - Broken less than 2 years
We purchased this unit in April 2015. Was glad to purchase the Five-year Home Depot warranty, but totally disappointed in both. Machine broke first week in August. Called the service and they scheduled someone to come out here (about four days out) and this repair person shows up and advises its major and a machine this young should not be having this issue. He says he will order a part and come back that weekend (another 3-4 days). He is a no show. So I call and he ask me for the Model # which I'm sure the warranty place provided to him. Then he comes out a few days later as he said he did not order the part he wanted to check again - seriously!!! He says he will order the same part he should have ordered almost a week ago, says he would be back Wednesday - no show or call. So I called the warranty place and they say the part will be there tomorrow and he will call to schedule. So no compassion from the warranty place. Warranty should hire more reliable contractors. I will NOT buy LG product again. We had a Whirlpool machine for over 10 years and only replaced it with the LG machine for better efficiency. Should have stuck with Whirlpool. VERY DISSAPPOINTED in LG as well as Home Depot Warranty. Not a good warranty if I have to be without a machine in almost a month's time. Just not acceptable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mas 2nd ALL-IN-ONE WASHER AND ELECTRIC VENTLESS DRYER
It's a perfect size for my condo. It works well for my needs
Compact Laundry is a great alternative here in the city, or anywhere there’s a tight space.
Compact laundry is mostly electric and most brands will only offer a vented or non-vented dryer options.
I don't have a place for the vent to go so I chose ventless.
Non-vented dryers work with a condenser and convert the steam to water. The water needs to be removed from the dryer or you can run a line from the dryer to the drain of the washer.

I have used the appliance many times after reading directions and watching how to videos. I love it. It is efficient quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adie Wonderful after some problem solving
First, this all-in-one was delivered, but the company refused to install it because they said they didn't have orders to. It was a nightmare. Make sure you speak to someone before they come to confirm install. What a headache!
Now for the good. I love how energy efficient this unit is! When we track our usage hourly, there is almost no noticeable energy use when it runs--even with the dryer. If you are on a time of use energy billing plan, just set your dirty clothes to wash and dry overnight. You will have clean, dry clothes in the am. So convenient (and cheap)! This unit saves a lot of space. My laundry room looks so tidy now with space for everything. The sanitize cycle is very handy, but can only be used with sturdy fabrics. Overall, it washes fine--about the same as my previous frontloader. I was hoping the steam would do something amazing for stain release, but nope. Just pretreating stains, and washing as normal is still the best bet.
Now for the bad. The wrinkles are intense. I depend on a dryer for wrinkle release, and this will NOT cut it. There is a cycle that will keep rotating your clothes after they are dry to prevent wrinkling, but everything is so wrinkled anyway, it becomes a useless feature. We ended up buying a tiny Panda dryer that fits about 7 shirts at a time. I damp dry the things that matter in the all-in-one, and then finish them off in the panda. Works great!
Lint and pet hair collect on the rubber gasket. I find it hard to remove from there. The good news is that you can just leave it. It will come off in the wash and get caught in the lint filter eventually, and I haven't noticed hair on our clothes.
Finally, I found the smell pretty repulsive when we first got it. Here is what worked for us. I ran the tub clean cycle with the stuff I use to clean our washer. Then I changed the drying to low temp dry. It may take longer, but I don't smell burnt rubber. I do use the more dry setting for my cloth diapers, though. That setting is nice for that thicker fabric.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tigger Washes and dries, just like it's supposed to!
One caveat to this review: we've only had the machine for a couple of weeks now, and used it a handful of times. My biggest concern, based on other reviews, was that the drying performance would be disappointing. On the contrary, when used according to the instructions this machine dried all of the laundry perfectly. The full cycle time was close to three hours, which will take getting used to if you would like to process a mountain of laundry. Do NOT overload the machine; fill the drum half-full, set the timer to begin when electricity rates are lower, select the dry cycle, then go to bed. In the morning you will have a load of perfectly dried clothing.
The machine does get fairly hot while it is drying, and there is a small blast of moist, hot air issuing from an opening in the back, so if you install this machine in a very small enclosed space you will probably notice a boost in room temperature and humidity, but it is nothing like the effect of having a "normal" dryer venting into your home. Ours is in a kitchen/dining room of about 400 square feet and we didn't notice any increase in temperature or humidity in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CBS Love it!
I love the machine! I was Skeptical because I've only used a top loader before and I've heard these don't use much water and it's hard to get clothes clean, but our clothes are even cleaner and fresher smelling! (My husband is a construction worker and his clothes are filthy and I use it to wash cloth diapers) A lot of people said it takes longer but it saves me time because it immediately dries and I don't have to remember to transfer the clothes. I love all the setting it has!
The dryer does take getting used to. A lot of people say it doesn't dry, but I think it's because it dries differently since it is ventless not that it doesn't dry. When you open your dryer the clothes do feel damp but I get them out to fold and shake them and the are dry! It's the weirdest thing, it's like inside the dryer is super humid (since its ventless) but as soon as they hit cool air it evaporates and they are dry! it just takes getting used to but I love it! It's a space saver and I feel like my clothes are cleaner and it saves water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by washerdryercombolover Loving it so far
Only had it for a week and so far i'm loving it! Drying time to me is like any dryer at home. I usually set it to wash and then dry and by the time i remember I had laundry in the machine, everything is dried already. Was able to do about 3-4 loads in a matter of 24 hours.
Definitely would recommend it to people!

Bought this for our son's apartment; he works so many hours as a chef it is hard to get his laundry done at the laundromat. We used adapters from the garden department at the hardware store to create a quick connect from the kitchen sink (plastic works easier than the metal one), and connected the two hoses supplied with the machine for one water line to the cold inlet. we used a brass cap to cover the hot water inlet. The drain hose that comes with the machine (watch for this - must be within 5 feet of the drain) then runs back into the sink. We zip tied the two hoses together so the drain wouldn't fly out and spill on the floor - based on an experience of accidentally bumping the hose ha. The machine must also have a 4 inch distance from the wall for the dryer exhaust. His clothes are coming out so much cleaner, and there's been no problem with the drying. It does take awhile, but he can start a load before bed and have clean clothes in the morning. We recommend the pedestal base under the machine. He's only had it three weeks, but it's been wonderful for him.
