Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great Features

T Crawford 9/2/2023

I was concerned this washing machine would be too techy for me but I love it It is easy to choose appropriate cycles and I love that it senses the size of the load and adjusts the water/timing appropriately. Our laundry has been very clean and fresh. I havent used the app yet- probably will be great once I get the hang of it.

Fast efficient quet

MikeBda 8/31/2023

This is a terrific washer. Fast efficient and quiet. It takes a bit of time to get used to the control panel and various different settings but that is a minor issue compared to the quality. Do not stop a cycle before it finishes. We did and had to reboot the washer in order to regain ability to select our desired cycle.

Overall excellent washer - with a few missteps

Daryl K 8/28/2023

Bought this set to replace a WM3770H and DLEX3570 washer/dryer set. I liked that pair but the washer suffered a premature bearing failure and I took the gamble to try LG a second time despite that. This set is a HUGE improvement and not just because of the move up from 2 to 5 turbowash jets. The number of available wash programs the ability to edit which ones are visible the wash prioritization feature that reshuffles the order of the programs based on frequency of usage are all gigantic steps up. LG has also opened up the option list a lot as well e.g. Extra hot temp was previously only available on the Sanitize cycle. Now I can add it to most cycles including Heavy Duty. This is super good for flexibility. Almost all cycles have the ability to add up to three extra rinses now for a total of four Huge improvement for sensitive skin I personally also like the new control panel - all touch sensitive. The small screen inside the selector dial is a nice touch. There are no physical buttons anymore. And the drum has a light now You have to scroll through a few options to turn it on manually but this doesnt bother me much. On the dryer the drum is now stainless too On my old set the washer was but dryer drum was painted steel. Another big improvement A few areas that could be improved: despite having the same 4.5 cu. ft. interior space the cabinet on this one takes up a noticeable amount of additional space. It may not matter to you but my laundry room is very small and its obvious. I wish there was a brightness setting to the control panel. Its not too bad but in daylight can be tough to read I have a large window in said laundry room. Touch settings that are available but not active are lit very dimply and difficult to see in some cases. And one major misstep: I think that as a result of people complaining about a small amount of water left in the liquid detergent cup LG now has molded a pinhole into the bottom. This was NOT a well thought out solution because thinner detergents i.e. most plant-based ones drain out as fast as you pour them in. Obviously this has no impact on powdered detergents I use both but after talking to LG customer care there seems to be no plan to correct this so I ended up putting a drop of glue over the hole. Now I am back to a bit of clear water left in the detergent cup after a wash but I never considered this a big deal in the first place so who cares? At least now my liquids detergents dont immediately drain out. Despite the few goofs this set is definitely an improvement for LG and looks and feels far more premium than older LG sets.

Gorgeous Laundry Pair that Works Great

BigPotato 8/4/2023

Have used this laundry pair for about a month now and absolutely love it. Looks great works great. Only complaint is that some of the settings end of cycle sound for instance are buried too far in either the machine menu or the application menu.

Sturdy drum

Pacifican 8/1/2023

Ive run 4 cycles so far and it is doing a great job of cleaning. The drum is noticeably stabile compared with my old LG where the drum broke. The drum also flips the clothes around to help clean. It has many cycles and the ThinQ app makes it easy to manage them and have only the cycles you use show up on the dial. Cons: this machine doesnt have a Steam Fresh cycle steam/tumble/no wash for wrinkles. LG also claims that additional cycles can be downloaded. So far only Overnight can be added. The glass is dark requiring a flashlight to see inside during the cycle. The Options are very hard to read since the display panel isnt illuminated but you can use the ThinQ app to select them instead.

A great washer

Holly Sunshine 7/20/2023

I love washing with this new washing machine. It is quiet with vibration has lots of washing options and does an amazing job. We were limited to the size because of the doorway and this one fit the bill. I also love the front loader it is my first and so much better than the top loader.
