Product Description

You’ve got better things to do than spend all day doing your laundry. LG’s amazing TurboWash™ Technology allows you to save 20 minutes per load, even on larger loads! This state-of-the-art washer showcases supercharged steam cleaning that virtually eliminates dirt and wrinkles, plus ColdWash™ powered by 6Motion™ technology to save you some bucks. With so many amazing features, you might be sorry that it all happens so quickly! Available at AppliancesConnection

Features:

Fast Forward Your Laudry with TurboWash
Tired of spending hours on end finishing your family's laundry? Now, those days are gone. LG's revolutionary TurboWash™ technology allows you to save 20 minutes on larger loads, with outstanding cleaning performance! It's like pressing the fast forward button on your laundry.

More Free Time with Ultra Large Capacity
Towers of towels, piles of sweatshirts, and a mountain of jeans? Go for it. The ultra large capacity (4.0 cu.ft.) tub lets you do more laundry in fewer loads. That’s time saved and sore backs avoided.

Experience Steam Cleaning
There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

Count On It
When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

The Hottest Thing in Cold Clean
Using the cold cycle on your washer doesn’t have to mean compromising. ColdWash™ technology uses cold water and enhanced washing motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings with warm water performance.

Save Money, Save Energy
When your washer uses about 30% less energy and half the amount of water used by regular washers, you’re going to make an impact—on your utility bills, your energy and water consumption, and most importantly, the environment.

Is it safe to use Iron Out in LG Front Load Washers?

Asked by djmille May 3, 2012

NeilE May 16, 2012

This washing machine was developed for HE products only. It is not recommended to use any product in this washing machine unless it is specified for use with HE laundry devices. If it gives instructions on HE product usage, then follow those directions. If it does not, then we do not recommend using the product. Standard bar soap is designed to produce soap suds, which can be harmful to a front load washing machine, and is almost polar opposite of the low-sudsing HE detergent.

Depth of 347 front load washer I am replacing old machines. They sit on wooden cabinets/drawers that are from wall to front 28 inches. There is plenty of room in front to swing out the door. Will this model or any lg model fit this space

leveling legs are about 24 inches from front to rear. Those should fit on your box. Total size from back of machine to front of front door is approx. 30 inches. The matching dryer is what you might have problems with since you need to leave room in the back for a 4 inch vent hose. The additional riser stands will probably not fit on you boxes

This washer makes washing clothes so easy and enjoyable. Now, I actually enjoy washing my clothes. This product is the best investment I have made. This washer has an amazing ability to clean the toughest stains on all types of clothes. I am so excited to purchase an LG dryer which I hope to purchase next month. Hopefully it will perform just as well as this LG washer.

Very nice washer! We have the matching electric dryer as well. This LG 3470 really does a great job and the clothes come out much dryer than are old washer. Appliances Connection is great, too. Wonderful experience.

Pros: detergent adding compartment is neat, cleans very well

I am very happy with the LGWM3470 so far (owned about 1 month). Clothes are very clean. It has good capacity. So much easier on the fabric than a top load washer with the twister action. I got rebates from my local utility co and water district - worth checking out if there are rebates in your area, I got about $120 back. The price at Appliances Connection is very good compared to other retailers I looked at. It took a week from ordering to getting my washer. I am all the way across the country. The communication of order status was good and the delivery came promptly when scheduled. I would buy from AppliancesConnection again.

Pros: Wash performance is great!

This is an exceptional washer. Everything we've tried in the washer comes out great. It has a handwash setting for exceptionally delicate clothes. The 'coldwash' option uses cold water only in addition to extra motions to wash clothes about as good as using warm water, which is great as some clothes are cold-water-only for washing.

Pros: Effective Quiet Steam settings for certain delicate items (we've even used the steam setting on dry clean only items!) Cold-water option for energy savings and for use on special, cold-water only clothes

Cons: None

Going from what I thought was the worlds first front load washing machine )almost 20 years I had my old machine( to this computer controlled singing and chirping easy to control all aspects of the wash cycle... from spin speed to wash times to easy just wash the darn clothes what a difference. I dont like manuals and his wash machine was easy to use and washes great! I am happy!

Pros: It almost drys the clothes for ya

Have had the washer a bit over month with about 40 loads through it. I was very impressed with it from the get go, and it was very easy to use. It is very energy efficient and uses about a tenth of the water our old machine did.

Pros: Quiet, Extremely Clean Clothes, Steam Cycle Rocks, Energy Efficient

Cons: None Yet

This washing is rated very good by CR, and so far, it works very well. There are so many features that I haven`t even learned how to use them all yet. I highly recommend.

Pros: Sanitary and allergy cycle features. Options to change the speed of the spin cycle.
