Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst washer I have ever owned We bought this because of all of the LG hype about how great their products are and the 5.2 cubic foot heavy load capacity. It cannot handle heavy loads. Today I loaded the cloathes, some underwear, some golf shirts a pair of sweat pant and a pullover hooded sweat shirt at 2:30. The wash was supposed to be over by 3:35. It is now 4:20 and the washer is still not done. I had to take out the sweat shirt and sweat pants because the washer could not balance the load to spin. I use the wifi feature however it does not tell if there is an issue. This washer cannot handle the same size load that my 15 year old Amana regular size washer did. This was a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again We are 2 people only used this machine lightly and following all proper instructions even the cleaning cycle once a month for 4 years.The spin cycle was noisy on the bedding and towel setting then it started vibrating and the machine would shift forwards. The last wash at the end made a loud clunking sound then that was the end. We called the technician who said that the electronics need replacing and likely also the mechanical parts. So a machine used with He detergent lightly used by a couple lasts 4 years!! If anybody chooses LG I would strongly advise getting extended warranty. Replacing with Heusch top loading as we do not trust the new smart washers not so smart after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG 3700V Series Washer and Dryer Combo I purchased the 3700V series washer and dryer combo to replace another brand of front load machines. On the first load through the washer and dryer I was impressed by how much quieter and how much faster the LG's are. After several more laundry loads I remain really impressed with the great job they do. You can safely use the dryer without connecting the water supply for the steam function but once you throw a wrinkled shirt into the dryer and it comes out wrinkle free and ready to wear you will wonder why you didn't connect it right away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t clean clothes I read the reviews which were great, however, after using this washer for 2 months, I would have shake my head at the reviews. I found that it doesn’t clean the clothes, especially stains, nor do the clothes come out smelling fresh and clean. The main reason is it doesn’t use enough water to clean clothes, I found undissolved pods stuck To clothes. There’s no way to increase water level if you have soiled clothes, if there is, they don’t supply that info. Go to a top load, sadly, LG front loads are not good in getting clothes clean and fresh smelling

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but... I bought the WM3700HVA a month ago. The machine washes well but when using the delicate cycle the machine drips from the soap dispenser. Not sure why it does this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible LG Warranty Program Purchased this early July and started having issues in October. Reported the problem to LG on October 29th to have it fixed under the warranty program. Today is December 15th and the washer is still not repaired. I understand that products have problems at times and that’s acceptable when the issue is dealt with correctly. LG’s inability to handle this in a timely manner as made for a horrendous purchase. First and last LG products that will ever be in my home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works very well when used properly Front loaders have their quirks. In this case, the worst is the sensitive balancing system. Make sure your load like materials. Sheets with sheets, towels with towels, etc. Mixing very absorbent items with less absorbent ones will "throw off" the system and extend your cycle unnecessarily (in some cases, it will stop and throw an error). Otherwise, works like a charm. Washes very thoroughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy I love this washer. The extra large capacity has made laundry day much shorter and it is so much more quiet than my last LG front load from 2010. I bought this model because the less expensive model had a delivery date several months away but I'm happy with it. Don't know if I'd ever use the steam function but it's nice to have it anyway.

Can the door hinge be changed to the right side?

Asked by: JayR
The washer door when facing the unit is hinged on the left side, washer doors are not reversible. Dryer doors are reversible.

i don't want to stack my washer and dryer. Just side by side. Does this Lg washer and drying do that?

Asked by: Dsopatyk
That's correct; this washer can be set side by side with the dryer. Or stacked. Either or is appropriate for this unit.
