Learning how to use your new LG washer dryer combo requires adjusting how you have previously completed your laundry. Your new appliance is designed to combine both washing and drying functions into a single unit. What this means is that each load of laundry will require a longer time to complete, because both are finished in the same appliance. On average, it takes about 2 ½ to 3 hours to complete a single wash and dry cycle. It is worth mentioning this amount of time is about the same as it is with conventional laundry pairs, except you do not have to remove clothes from the washer and place them in the dryer.
One mistake some people make as they first start using their new LG washer dryer combo is attempting to complete all of their laundry in a single day. Because the cycle times are longer, it is recommended you break up your loads and spread them out over several days. Because you do not have to worry about forgetting and leaving clothes in the washer overnight, you could run a load during the week before going to bed, and the clothes will be dry when you get up in the morning.
Other differences from conventional laundry pairs you notice are the amount of water and electricity the combo appliance uses. Because it is an energy-efficient appliance, it requires less water and electricity per cycle. You also require less detergent and fabric softener, as this model is designed to be used with high-efficiency brands.
