The ratings for the LG combination washer and dryers vary from one to five stars online at Lowe's and Home Depot sites. Customers favorably describe space and energy efficiency features, while indicating that there is a lot to learn about how the machines work before using them.
Customers enjoy using one machine for both washing and drying clothes; however, several people who rate the machines complain that the washing and drying cycle takes a long time and clothes are damp when the cycle ends. Reviewers state that the LG machines are quiet, and many customers praise the machines for cleaning delicate clothing. Overall, customer reviewers indicate that the combination washer and dryer produces clean clothes that smell great regardless of the detergent used.
Most customers who give high ratings buy the machine to save space in small homes or for small families without excessive laundry to clean. Because the machines have many features, customers providing rating reviews describe a high learning curve and suggest buying the protection plan. One customer reviewer recommends adequate home maintenance by wiping edges after each use to prevent excessive lint buildup.
Customer reviewers indicate that washing or drying clothes separately is not a typical feature for the combination machines, and placing machines on a pedestal is important for proper performance.
