WashCombo All-in-One FAQs

How do I clean the Compressor?

Ventless Laundry using LG's Inverter HeatPump Technology has an Auto Cleaning Condenser. If you ensure you keep the ezLint Filter™ clean, then this Auto Cleaning Condenser technology should mean no cleaning hassles and more consistent drying over time.

How much space do you need to accommodate the WashCombo™ All-in-One?

Dimensions are W 27" x H 39" x D 33 1/8" and we recommend 1" on the sides, around 4" on the back for water/power connections, and 12 1/4" on the top to easily get the ezLint Filter™ out. Be sure you have space in front to open the door, too!

Is there a way to keep track of number of cycles to ensure the filters are cleaned properly?

Yes! The ThinQ® app will show number of cycles ran as well as sending notifications when it's time to clean the inner filter.

Where does the heat blow?

The WashCombo™ All-in-One uses a ventless drying system, this means heat is recirculated inside the unit and the moisture and hot air leave through the drain.

Is there an option to dry only?

Yes, there is are several DRY ONLY cycles. Check out the Cycle Guide.

How loud isthe WashCombo™ All-in-One?

The WashCombo™ All-in-One is quite quiet at just over 50dB in our tests at the loudest point in the cycle (whisper quiet most of the time!).

Can the WashCombo™ All-in-One be connected to a sink faucet?

Since WashCombo™  is not designed to be connected to a tap out of the box and requires a dedicated water supply and drainage system for proper operation, you will need to get parts from your local home supply to add a "Y" your sink. 

Can you set up two side-by-side and run them at the same time?

The WashCombo™ can be paired with an LG SideKick™ offering 1 additional cubic foot of washing capacity, this is your best solution. But, if you want two WashCombos: check with local municipality to see if you are allowed to run two washing units on the same circuit and ensure your circuit can handle at least 13A

Is the WashCombo™ All-in-One gas or electric?

It runs on a standard 120V electric outlet.

Can I use the combo if I only have cold water?

Yes! Just keep in mind that cycles may take a little longer if you don't have a hot water feed.
