    (Why don't we show the price?)

    Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. Taking these steps allows Appliances Connection to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. You are not required to purchase the product to see our lowest price, simply just remove it from your cart.

    Is there a pedestal available to fit the compact washer?

    Hi Raylene. The only LG Laundry Pedestals we currently have are for LG Front Load Washers and Dryers that have a width of 27" or 29". Regrettably, we do not make any that are compatible with the LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24 Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW or washers that have a 24" width...^IFV

    Hi Dennis811. Regrettably, the only stackable dryer that is compatible with the ENERGY STAR Qualified LG 2.3 cu. ft. Capacity 24 Compact Front Load Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM1388HW which comes with an included stacking kit is the LG 4.2 cu.ft.

    We have previously purchased the dryer and have lost the stacking kit but now we'd like to buy the dryer and stack them. Is there any way that I can purchase or pay for a stacking kit that is compatible with this model?

    Fits perfectly in our kitchen in place where old dishwasher used to be. Good for family of four. Minimum to none vibration, leaves clothes clean and almost dry.

    I purchased the Washer/Dryer units back in May & had to wait quite about a month for delivery due to availability... but it certainly was worth the wait...Easy to use, Quiet, they fit perfectly in my condo unit due to the small size. If your considering this unit I definitely recommend for you to purchase! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Excellent Compact Washer

    By  from Chapel Hill, NC, United States  Verified Owner
    Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

    Recommended Product:

    I couldn't be happier with this compact washer. It’s perfect for one person and an apartment. Operation is quiet, and the spin cycle (even at the highest) is well-balanced and quiet. Clothes come out nearly dry. Features I love include a Drain+Spin — which you will use if you have overloaded the washer and it can’t get the load balanced well enough to spin the contents dry (take out some of the contents and use Drain+Spin to get them rung out). I’ve used several cycles so far, and each works well for the type of load. I’ve been using the Tide pods (one per load, as this is a small washer). I tested with some really dirty clothes, and they came out perfectly clean. The only thing I looked for on this washer was a tub light (like the big LG has). One design consideration for LG is to think about using higher-contrast lettering on the control panel (or to back-light the entire panel). Beneath each selection is the name of the selection (Gray background with black lettering). This might be hard for some folks to read without direct light.

    I bought this machine a week ago. It is very loud, and makes a knocking sound when on Spin, to the point of confusing me that someone was at my door knocking loudly. i will be returning to the store. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Good overall, but won't do a hot wash

    By  from Canton, MA, United States  Verified Owner
    Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

    Recommended Product:

    I've had this machine about 2.5 months, so far I like it. I needed a very compact machine and in the USA there aren't a lot of good choices and this one seemed to be the best of what's available. It wrings the clothes so dry that they can hang for just a few hours to finish up drying. It uses VERY LITTLE water and is super energy efficient. But, here's what I don't like - 1) I'm told that newer Energystar machines like this one tend to mix in cold water to lower the cost of a load of laundry (because hot water costs more than cold). That is certainly the case with this machine. Unless you select the VERY LONG sanitary cycle, the machine will only due a lukewarm wash at best. It will always mix in cold water and will not do a true "hot water only" wash cycle. The sanitary cycle uses the internal heater and that allows a hot wash. It would seem to me that if I select HOT as the cycle temp, that is what I should get, but alas, that is not the case with this machine. 2) The machine spins very fast (up to 1400 rpm) in order to really wring the clothes dry, but that can cause the machine to shake and rattle a lot. You can select a lower spin speed, but that leaves more water in the clothes. 3) Lastly, the drain pump on the machine makes a loud rattling noise when it activates, this is annoying as my machine is in a closet in my living room. 4) Because of the limited choices in this size range, the machines are very expensive like this one is. In the full size range, a similar machine could be found for at least $200 less. Supply and demand, I guess. So in short, I find it does a decent job cleaning, and uses very little water, but the cycles are long, it's quite noisy, and you can't get a hot wash w/o choosing the very long sanitary cycle.

    Beautiful Machine

    We've had this washing machine for about four months and we love it. It's quiet and does a an excellent job cleaning our clothes. It has a number of wash cycle choices for different jobs, but allows you to make changes within those cycles. For instance, I like to wash almost everything with tap water temperature.

    Not without major flaw

    By  from Garnet Valley, PA, United States  Verified Owner
    Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

    Washes well, doesn't always dissolve laundry pod, wrings clothes nearly dry, but...SHAKES UNCONTROLABLY IN SPIN. Can't have anything on top while running..have anti-vibration pads AND hired a contractor to build extra support walls under the floor it rests on which has stopped the entire house shaking but the machine still rocks. Very very disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
