Questions & Answers

Q:Why is this washer always warm when wash cycle is complete? Hoses are hooked up correctly and I washed on cold

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi! If your laundry comes out of the LG WM8100HVA - 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology warm then the most likely explanation is that they've been rinsed in hot water. This is caused when the cold valve is accidentally connected to the hot tap. ~Rita

            Perfect Thankyou LG
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought This Product 6 months ago perfect Working Thankyou
              Finally got it figured out!
              Now that a big issue has been resolved, I love this washer. The first few times I washed, my clothes came out steaming even when I used cold wash. After 10 days and many trials, we figured out the washer hoses had been installed wrong (switched hot and cold lines). I love all the features and how clean, less wrinkled and fresher smelling my clothes come out compared to my old washer.
                Easy to use very good quality runs quiet
                I bought a little bit over a month and my wife love it.
                  Excellent Buy
                  Everything works great

                    Leaking and Weird Noises
                    When I just start first using the washer, I start hear metallic scratching or clanking in the back of the washer, and it starts to leak water. I want to return this washer to the store. I strongly recommend not to purchase this washer.

                        New six day old washer will not drain :(
                        After following all the trouble shooting instruction repeatedly with no results I'm greatly sad at the failing of my much anticipated LG front load washer. I can't reach a person for support. I created a repair request but fear it will not be fixed soon.
