Wash in peace
You shouldn’t know your washer is on from the next room. The LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system is designed to minimize washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house - even on the 2nd floor.

More free time
Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The ultra-large capacity (4.2 cu.ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.

Super clean
Some stains are so nasty it’s hard to imagine how they’ll ever come out. Our NSF-certified Sanitary Cycle heats water up to 158F to remove the toughest stains and bacteria.

Count on it
When you buy a washer, you don't want to worry that it won't last. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

No need to vent
Dry your clothes without any need for external venting. Now you can enjoy the value and quality of an LG washer even if you have limited space.

Just set and go
Let us take the guesswork out of doing the laundry. With features like our LED Display indicators and intuitive Dial-A-Cycle controls, you’ll find the right setting every time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Washer/Dryer Combo

Pros: You put dirty clothes in and they come out clean and dry!
Runs on 110V AC.
Ventless drying cools and condenses warm moist air and sends the moisture down the drain.
Inexpensive to run.
Uses very little water.

Cons: Takes a little bit longer to wash and dry a load of laundry.

Other Thoughts: We bought this machine back in February 2010. I did a lot of research and this machine is tops in terms of reliability and function. With 6 people (four kids) in the house this machine keeps up with the demand. We haven't had a problem with it at all. We purchased this from a home improvement store. Make sure you get the pedestal as it makes it a lot easier to load and unload a front opening machine. There are some pretty good reviews of this machine on you-tube.

5 out of 5 eggsnot 4.2 cu ft

Pros: Great unit, the trick is to fill it only 2/3 full. If you do then it will wash and dry your clothes without the need to pull clothing from the unit and it will only add about 30 min more to the standard drying time. However the unit is only 3.6 cu. ft. per LG's website, it is not 4.2.

Cons: If you don't understand a condensation dryer you might be turned off at first, but these really are great units and LG does provide very good service.

1 out of 5 eggsYou should shop local for this item.

Pros: This is short. Its nice to have an all in one unit to save space and time swapping machines.

Cons: This is longer... The two main things to take note of:
1. LG's tech support is rude and very unhelpful.
2. Newegg is not a very good appliance dealer.

I have ordered from Newegg (computer/tech items) for more than a decade and have always been satisfied. I however regret ordering this item from them. They are not in the Appliance business and probably shouldn't offer these items. Their staff are not well trained at handling problems, the return policies are different (Short summary, you can't return it) If there is any hidden or unnoticed damage (as in my case), you are out of luck. LG will offer NO assistance, Newegg will offer very little.
As far as the unit, I researched this item for awhile, so I was aware of its shortcomings (li.e. ong dry times - due to non-venting and 110V). So no surprises. Just recommend you buy a large item like this locally to save on the headache of trying to get someone to actually help you.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would buy a different brand from a different vendor.
I have loved Newegg and always recommended them to friends and colleagues. This experience has made me question if I will every purchase from them again.

Side, note - The current site has inconsistent return policies shown. This review page says "standard" - which allows return, the product page has none, the search page says "Major Appliance Return Policy" - WHich means you must refuse delivery.
