LG 2in1 Ventless Washer Dryer Not Drying (in time-lapse) Review

Published on May 13 ,2015 by K1

This is a brand new LG two in one washer/Dryer bought in March 2015 that could not dry right out of box.

We bought this through Home Depot in Vancouver, BC, Canada

After 6 hours we were able to get a load dry. We are hoping it's simply malfunctioning, but we have not been able to get an estimate from LG how much a half dryer load (one quarter of the max washing load) is meant to take.

Is 6 hours dry time normal for this machine ? NO
We eventually got it replaced after showing LG this video (more than three months after we first brought it to their attention)
BY FAR the worst customer service we've ever dealt with, their 'Execute Team' were only willing to help after we made this video. We will not be repeat customers.

    I just bought a 2.3cu.ft lg washer/dryer similar to this machine, I HAVE NO PROBLEMS AT ALL with the drying cycle. Becuz it DOES use steam and cold water to condense water and dry clothes maybe this guy doesnt have the cold water hooked up? Ive been using my washing machine for 3mnths now and I LOVE IT!

    Thank you. Would you recommend me getting the store warranty or is the warranty under the company sufficient. I think the store warranty is a scam. what do yOu think

    I have a similar/smaller model. My machine dries just fine, BUT, yea I need to service it every 6 mths or so and clean out the lint from the internal baffles. If everything is clean, something is wrong, probably the sensor.

    I was told it could take up to 4-5 hours to do a wash and dry cycle.

    You select dry and keep pushing the button until it reads "more". When you do that, it should take anywhere between 3 1/2 to 4 hours. It uses a condenser, which needs a cold rinse in order to dry the clothes. What's clearly abnormal is you....you should have read your manual.

    I was going to say Clean the Lint trap, However it wouldn't dry out of the box, There is obviously something wrong with the Machine. It may have been a Machine that was ASSEMBLED on a Monday Morning, After a weekend of Partying.  However Home Depot Customer Service SUCKS pretty much in Both The USA and Canada.
