Enjoy the convenience of an All-In-One Washer/Dryer without giving up on capacity. Give big loads the same great clean while cutting your wash time by up to 30 minutes with LG's enhanced TurboWash technology. Based on the cycle you select, LG 6Motion technology uses up to 6 different wash motions, each designed to get clothes cleaner and help them last longer. Breathe a little easier with the Allergiene cycle that uses the gentle power of steam to remove common household allergens from bedding, baby clothes and more. And with LG ThinQ technology, you can get alerts on your smartphone the minute clothes are clean, and control key washer and dryer features from anywhere, at any time.

  1. The ultra-large capacity 5.2 cu. ft. capacity lets you do more laundry in fewer loads
  1. TurboWash's combination of quick soaking water spray and filtration motion means washing time can be reduced to just 29 minutes, but with an improved powerful wash performance

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money I bought this about a month ago expecting to do laundry before I left for work just have to come home fold and put away. Not even close after it runs all day I have to come home and set the dryer to dry another couple hours. Waste of money. It is a also that I’m not putting to much laundry in this is like 2 towels 3 t shirts and 2 pairs of jeans. Very highly disappointment in this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do your research, it’s nice washer is good but not the dryer. The look of the machine is nice, my issue is the dryer. The dryer does not work well, clothes come out damp. If you want the clothes fully dry it will take about 3-4 hours. Keep in Ming it will take you a full day to wash a load and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hated it at first, now I love it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought it, hated it. Couldn't figure it out. Then I read the directions and it's amazing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Washes and Dries, but smells TERRIBLE Washes and dries as expected-- the full cycle is 6-8 hours. You have to take items out immediately and hang them because they need a little air to finish. Ok! Not OK: Horrible petroleum odor, still present after 6 months and many loads. Don't risk it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this all-in-one machine about a month ago. I cannot say enough good things about it! It has made Doing laundry a breeze! What's not to love it works on 110, Takes the guess work out of everything! I put my laundry in night it's done in the morning I fold it and we're ready to go again! There is a small learning curve but once you get the hang of it there's no going back to the old way! I have already recommended it to all my friends and one of them already purchased it! Soooo happy with this machine!
Date published: 2021-11-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy this machine or ANY LG washer The machine does NOT dry because LG continues to use a faulty drain pump that they KNOW is faulty. It does not drain enough water from the drum after a wash, and clothes end up being steamed instead of dried. SHAME ON LG! DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy this!!! Well after paying $2013 for this and having Home Depot install it and all, the machine is NOT worth the price .. it takes 6+ hrs for 1 load to be done. Description says it cuts time down is false advertisement.it take HOURS longer.. ridiculous

No vent needed / Do not buy - TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE ISSUES WITH HD
Answered by: AMELIA

This is listed as ventless, but the unit clearly has a small vent on the back pumping out hot, high humidity air. Should I tie this into some kind of outdoor vent? It seems like it will damage my walls and add humidity into the air?

Asked by: Spencer
We found this too. The unit needs to be at least 4-inches from the wall we found. 5 inches worked better as well as having the room well ventilated (we have an exhaust fan in ours). LG gave conflicting information when contacted.

Does there have to be a dryer vent to outside
Asked by: Ruth
No, this unit does not vent outside. It does, however, have a small vent on the back of it that a technician said was a heat overflow that will blow hot, moist air behind it. We have to set our unit about 5-inches from the wall. The manual says 4".

We had an LG All-in-One years ago and had an extensive warranty that we unfortunately needed to use regularly. We had to have a repairman come out to open the top of the machine and clean out accumulated lint. Does this still happen with the newer models?

When using Turbo and Normal Dry, the time gets stuck in 11 minutes and doesn't move further than that for a long time. I usually have to turn off the machine and my clothes are extremely dry already. Is there a problem with the moisture sensor?

Asked by: mfalonzo9
Both the Turbo and Normal cycles when drying in the LG 4.5 cu.ft. Smart Wi-Fi Enabled All-In-One Washer/Dryer with TurboWash® Technology, Model # WM3998HBA periodically spray water into the drum to reduce the drying time and the normal cycle does not spray as much water as the turbo cycle. Electronic sensors that measure the temperature of the exhaust to increase or decrease drying temperatures are used in the automatic programs...^Ivan
