what is the difference between the GE and the LG

Asked by jaci April 15, 2021
2
Answers

I only own the LG. It cost less than the GE and was more readily available when my old washer failed. I love my compact LG. It fits where I need it to fit (1st floor, off my kitchen) and does a really nice job of getting clothes clean. It will easily accommodate king size bedding (2 sheets, 2 pullowcases) and laundry for 3 adults. I'm sure I can fit throw rugs in it and I love it. It is quiet beyond belief

How many volts

Asked by Eleni March 17, 2021

Answers

Hi, it is 120V.^Venette

I see that the washer handles 2.3 cu ft. of laundry. Can you put that in laypersons terms? For example, how many regular sized bath towels can one wash at a time or how many queen-sized sheets can one wash at a time? The companion dryer? Thank you

Asked by Pat4 March 2, 2021

Answer

Cubic feet is not a weight, it is a volume and there is no way to convert weight into volume. The LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24” Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW does not handle 2.3 cu. ft of laundry. It has a capacity of 2.3 cu. ft. similar to how a range oven has a capacity for the oven. A capacity of 2.3 cu.ft. will accommodate an estimated 12 lbs load. Towels can vary anywhere between 300 GSM and 900 GSM. The lower the number, the lighter and thinner the towel.GSM is short for grams per square meter. All fabrics have a weight, and the standard measurement for the weight and quality of fabrics (including towels) is grams per square meter. This number refers to the density of the towel. For instance: 300-400 GSM – In this weight, as noted, the towels are lighter and thinner. But, depending on its use, you might want a lower GSM for the gym towel or a kitchen towel. A lightweight, quicker-drying beach towel might be around 350 GSM, for instance. 400-600 GSM – This is a medium weight. This weight is great for beach towels, bath towels, guest towels and so forth. Each consecutive gram weight –400, 500, 600– gets a little heavier, and a little more absorbent. 600-900 GSM – This is a premium, luxury weight. The towel will be denser, heavier, more absorbent. It will probably take a little longer to dry. Other factors that will influence the towel’s softness and absorbency are: type of cotton, whether the manufacturer uses a polyester blend or whether the cotton is a single or double loop, and so on. Check the weights for your regular sized bath towels or queen-sized sheets to determine how many you can wash at a time given that the washer will accommodate up to 12 lbs. The matching dryer is designed to accommodate a full load from the washer. Since the washing capacity for washers is twice that for the drying capacity, dryers have almost twice the capacity that washers have. The matching dryer for this washer, is the LG 4.2 cu. ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W...^IFV

Great everything
I bought this a month ago and I love everything about this machine. It's super quiet and it definitely washes very clean, I would recommend 1000 times.

Features and Functionality
Purchased for a small area in a Condo. Purchased the Washer/Dryer combination that was stackable. It is stable and does a beautiful job washing clothes. Highly Recommended.

Excellent washer
I bought this back in august and have had time to know how it works. I absolutely love it. The clothes get clean. I love how it cycles through to sense the soiled level, the material, how quiet it runs, and hold more capacity than one would think. I have no cons at all about this washer. I’m 69, had 3 children, raised big gardens, worked in tobacco and have washed lots of clothes in my time. I know my washing machines amd what i want them to do. I want them to clean the clothes and not be half wet when you take them out to either put in a dryer or hang on a line. This washer is perfect for both of those. The size would be perfect in a small apartment/condo/or a big ol house if you just wanted something to take up less space and do a good job. This is the one to get. Excellent excellent

Perfect solution!
I live in a 55+ complex in a very restricted HOA. This washer/dryer was the perfect solution for me as I am 67 years old with disabilities. I never owned a compact washer and ventless dryer however, they are the best appliances. The washer is capable of washing my queen size bedding and my daughter and my three teenage grandchildren were here for a month and my daughter agreed with me how easy they are to use. Also, I saved approximately 3,000 dollars due to no vent and not having to jack hammer to tie into 3” drain. My photos will validate my claims. We bought our Grandchildren a 65 inch smart TV for Christmas and my husband and I purchased a LG TV as we are so impressed with your products. Thank you

I am very pleased with this washer. I stacked it with the LE ventless dryer, and am actually enjoying doing laundry! It is very quiet but although I didnt notice much shaking during the spin cycle, the unit next to me sure did. The washer is on a wood floor in an upstairs unit, so I will try placing the unit on hard foam in the hopes of reducing the floor vibrations. Still happy with it, though!

We have only had the LG front load washer for about 2 months but so far I am completely satisfied. Our application use for the washer was a bit different because we installed it in our Trawler and it's a 2.3 load capacity and the washer itself was assembled the only thing we had to do was level it. I do like the direct drive better then the belt driven, quieter & smoother spin out but time will tell how long it holds up on a boat. The touch screen settings are very sensitive several times I have brushed up against the washer and heard the sound it makes when you adjust the settings but it has not caused the settings to change. It's perfect size for just my husband and I and it fits perfect were we have it located. So far the movement of our boat has not effected the washer while operating. I love all the wash setting options you have and so far I am pleased with the outcome of the cleanliness & smell of my wash. I also like that it gives you a choice on spin out speed. Now would like to get matching dryer the one I have is not LG.
