LG WM3875HVCA Front Loader Steam Washer 4.8 cu. ft.

A very large capacity, front-loading washer, this, along with the WM3875HVCA, is LG’s answer to households with huge laundry needs. A Graphite Steel finish covers a tough washer. Capable of handling loads as heavy as 10.1 kilograms (22.2 pounds) thanks to its 4.8 cubic feet capacity, this machine also has other options that allow it to launder the most delicate garments or remove the toughest stains.

Key features

This takes the guesswork out of laundry, while ensuring that the most efficient settings are used. Water consumption is kept at a minimum, and optimum cleaning performance is assured.

Leaks leaks and more leaks
by: Anonymous

Both the washer and matching dryer of this combo had to be repaired only two years after purchase. Customer service was non-existent. Any questions about "what could be causing the washer to leak" were met with, oh, we couldn't possibly have any idea. You'll need to pay out a few hundred bucks on your already overpriced machine to get that issue looked at. The customer service acted like having their washer leak was unheard of - total bs. I'd never purchase an LG appliance again. Much better experience with Kenmore/Sears.
