Summary: Had this machine for 5 years purchased from Best Buy. Did not have one issue with it - excellent machine. Sold the house and moved and just purchased a new one for the new house. The new house has a typical washer and dryer which are 2-yes old and I am donating them to Habitat For Humanity. Do not need a new wash or dryer but prefer this machine so much that I am purchasing it. The clothes come out so clean and fresh. The machine even cleans silks and wool well.
Doing laundry is now easy but LG controls could be better

Summary: I've been studying and wanting one of these combo units for years, the simplicity and efficiency just appeals to me. But reviews have been typically very bad for any type of combo unit. I did not see consistent good reviews (although there are still a lot of bad) until this particular model and I think much of it has to do with the large size capacity as well as the manufacturer (LG).
Summary: The machine is just perfect! For people that don't have space for two machines or for people like me that does have space but don't like to be there taking care of the washer machine, this is a very very good solution. You can put your stuff inside and after a few hours it is done and perfectly dry. If you don't know how this type of machine work, be careful, this is not a regular dryer and takes much longer to dry.
Summary: Pros - uses 120v, washes great, almost silent operation, plenty of wash options, will wash fairly large loads of laundry, the power cord and the outlet do not get hot to the touch when running, uses way less soap and bleach than you are use to using, no problem with clothes tangling and turning into balls, Cons - drying cycle is so slow, long long wash dry cycles, lots of maintenance on a daily and consistant basis, you can only dry half a load, clothes can get very...
Summary: "Love the combo - put my laundry in set timer and come home just as it is finishing drying. As other review state - clothes come out feeling damp and with a shake they are fresh and dry . This was my 2nd purchase from Appliances Connection - I love you guys !! Thank you for great products - great prices and service!!!!
Pros: Space Saver- Easy to use - no more have to run out and switch from washer to dryer
Summary: "We purchased a farmhouse in the country that does not have a dedicated laundry room, therefore needed to find something that had minimal installation needs and space requirements. This appliance fit the bill perfectly! No need for venting or expanded electricity. It can`t get any better than this! No more shunting wet loads from washer to dryer. Rather than doing laundry once a week, I now do a load every day or two so that the load is small and it dries perfectly.
Summary: So I bought this really pretty machine at a great price ($1,499.00). It was easy to set up, easy to use and it was beautifully quiet. The problem: IT DOESN'T WORK. The wash cycle works just fine but the drying is ridiculous. 4 hours to dry sheets; 5 hours for clothes; and the towels? Forget about it. Hang-drying them would have been faster. What a waste of time and money.
Summary: For clarity's sake let me begin this review with a disclaimer: Back in the late 1950's (around 1958) Philco-Bendix introduced a washer dryer combo to the market. Both my wife and I had experience with that machine when growing up. So, we came into the purchase of this machine with an understanding of the limitations that this combination presents. Flash forward 55 years...we are now retired and living in a condo unit in a high rise.
Summary: "Wow! I love this machine! Don`t be put off by the people who don`t like the steam dryer. This machine cleans beautifully and your clothes smell great without dryer towels. It takes a little getting used to the steamy feeling of the clothes when its done, but just lay them or hang them out for 5 minutes & they`re perfect! It uses very little soap etc. is quiet and more energy efficient than our old washer/dryer.
Pros: My clothes are never wrinkled! I don`t have to remember to change them from one machine to another & I have extra room in my laundry area.
