LoDecibel Quiet Operation
One the one hand, this is the best appliance I've ever purchased: space- saving, efficient, and a heavenly luxury compared to the alternative which is an inconvenient and pricey wash and fold. If you're in a similar situation, I predict you'll absolutely love this machine for what it does to your routine. On the other hand, there are some considerable flaws, mostly the noise level, slow drying, and the vibration issue.
Dryer died after 10 months
The dryer side of this washer dryer combo died after 10 months. The service man they sent didn't have any parts but got it working. 2 months later, the dryer stopped again... unfortunately out of warranty. Not going to fight for a week (again) to get service out.
I'll be staying away from the Haier brand and looking for a better quality washer/dryer combo.
Can be used without a washer/dryer hookup
The LG WM3987HW is an all-in-one washer-dryer combo that combines a front-loading washing machine with a condensing dryer. It's about the same size as a regular front-loading washer (3.6 cubic feet) and can wash a full load of laundry, but can only dry about half that amount at once. The dryer doesn't vent, so this washer-dryer combo can be used in small spaces without washer/dryer hookups. However, the ventless dryer does make drying much more time-consuming -- up to four hours.
Great for small areas
This is perfect for my apartment because its small and doesn't take up much space at all. It's great quality and offers many different settings to make sure that your clothes don't get destroyed like in a cheaper model machine. I don't really like that its a washer and dryer in one. Me personally I would rather take the extra time and transfer clothes from one to the other. While it is small, I would suggest going with a double unit.
Attractive titanium finish
The LG WM3431HS was rated the top washer/dryer combo model on consumersearch.com. At the time of publishing, it has since been replaced by a newer model, the LG WM3455HA. With added features such as electronic controls, automatic water-level settings, a sensor dry cycle with adjustable dryness levels and an extra-hot sanitary wash cycle, this model offers a lot more than your typical combo unit.
Comes with 2.7 cu. ft. Capacity
This machine quickly washes and drys your clothes in less than 3 hours so it really is a fantastic time saver. You get multiple wash settings so you are assured clean, fresh clothes every time. The dryer turned out better than expected and had clothes dried thoroughly when removed immediately after cycle.
The only cons to the LG WM3455HS Front Load Compact Washer/Dryer Combo is it does require a firm surface to level it and reduce vibration.
