A washer and dryer combo is a viable solution for businesses currently outsourcing their laundry needs to a third party service. This simple and easy to use appliance does not take up much space in your business. It is the ideal solution for beauty salons, spas, day care centers, and doctors’ offices. All that is needed to install the compact washer and dryer is access to hot and cold water lines, a discharge drain, and a standard 3-prong electrical outlet. The appliance may also be converted into a portable washer dryer with a wheel kit and kitchen sink conversion kit.
Some of the places where businesses have installed a washer and dryer combo include bathrooms, utility rooms, kitchens, and storage closets. With a LG washer dryer combo, both washing and drying functions are performed in one compact appliance. You eliminate stacks of dirty towels, gowns, and other items sitting around your business. You also never have to worry about running out of clean items during busy periods, since you can start a load of laundry whenever necessary.
Not only is a LG washer dryer energy-efficient, it uses ventless drying technologies, removing the need to have a dryer vent installed at your place of business.

An LG washer dryer combo makes a great holiday present for the entire family, especially if your home currently has to make trips to the laundromat to do laundry. The best thing about a new all-in-one washer dryer is not worrying about whether your home has existing washer and dryer connections or dryer venting. Even if you are currently renting and are not able to make modifications to the home, it is easy to upgrade the combo washer and dryer and convert it into a portable laundry appliance.
How to Select the Right Size LG Washer and Dryer Combo
There are two basic sizes available in an LG washer dryer combo: 24 inch compact and 27 inch full size. 24 inch compact models are well-suited for couples who do not have a large amount of laundry to do on a weekly basis, or if you have very limited space in your home. Twenty-seven inch full size all-in-one washers and dryers are ideal for families and single parent homes where there is normally much more weekly laundry to wash and dry. You may also want to consider a full size model if you want to be able to wash larger items, like comforters, at home and avoid trips to the laundromat.

Part of doing laundry is investing in laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and other laundry aids. But are all of these products really necessary to get your clothes clean? And how can you reduce the costs to get more bang for your buck? The first thing to consider in reducing laundry costs is your type of washer and dryer. Are they high efficiency and energy efficient, like a LG washer dryer combo? If they are, this means the machines can use specially concentrated detergent, fabric softener, and bleach formulas.
The next way to lower laundry expenses is to consider your laundry needs. How dirty are your clothes? Lightly soiled clothes from normal wear do not require special detergents with heavy-duty stain removal products. If you have varying levels of soiled laundry loads, purchase a basic detergent for lightly soiled loads, and another detergent for heavily soiled loads. If you have a baby in the home, you do not have to spend more on laundry detergent for babies, unless your baby has allergies, or it is recommended by your pediatrician. Instead, you can use any brand of detergent that is dye free and fragrance free to launder you baby’s clothes.
The best way to save money on laundry detergent is to take advantage of store sales and coupons. Most stores run their detergent and laundry supplies sales based upon the coupons in the Sunday paper. Some stores even allow you to stack manufacturer coupons with store or competitor coupons, for even more savings.

You can say goodbye to the long hours spent at the laundromat every single week by purchasing your own LG washer and dryer combo. This laundry appliance was designed specifically for people who want in-home laundry, but who either lack a large amount of space in the home or existing washer and dryer connections. The LG combination washer dryer is also well suited for apartment complexes, rental homes, and condominiums, as well as businesses looking for a laundry solution.
Size and Installation Options Available with LG Washer Dryer Combo Models
The LG washer dryer combo is available in both 2.7 cubic foot and 3.6 cubic foot capacities. All models require a standard 110 volt three-prong outlet to operate both washing and drying features. The only other connections you need access to are hot and cold water, and a discharge drain. You can have a plumber install these connections by tapping into existing water and drain lines in the home, apartment, condo, or business if you want to install the all-in-one washer dryer in a fixed location.
Another option for installing your combo washer dryer is to convert it into a portable laundry machine by having a sink conversion kit and wheel kit installed. Once these are installed, doing laundry is as simple as rolling the washer dryer up to your kitchen sink any time you need to do a load. With either installation method, you do not require a dryer vent, as all LG combo models use ventless drying technologies.

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.
When you are looking for space-saving appliances to use in your home, you should consider compact LG washers and dryers. These appliances provide the ease and convenience of front-loading machines, with many energy saving features. With stand-alone models, you have several options for the placement in your home. You could set them side by side on the floor, or raise them off the floor by attaching optional pedestals. Another option is to stack them, by placing the dryer on top of the washer and securing it in place with a stacking kit. Just remember, you are unable to use pedestals if you are stacking your appliances.
The only types of connections required for LG washers are access to hot and cold water lines and a discharge drain. The washer uses a regular three-pronged outlet for power. The stand-alone dryer does require access to the larger three or four-pronged outlet and the matching dryer cord. However, no dryer vent is required or needed, because it uses ventless drying technologies to remove water from your clothes and fully dry them.
In the event you do not have laundry connections in your home, apartment, or condo, you might want to consider an all-in-one appliance, instead of two separate appliances. An all-in-one can be converted into a portable model by adding a wheel kit and sink faucet kit. The sink faucet kit makes it possible to connect your washer directly to your kitchen faucet and use the kitchen drain for the discharge water. The dryer also incorporates ventless drying technologies. In addition, the combination appliance operates using a standard three-prong plug.
Different types of businesses can help reduce laundry service expenses by obtaining their own LG washer dryer combo. For example, beauty salons, health spas, physical therapy centers, health clubs, doctors’ offices and other such operations often have towels and other items which need to be washed. Instead of having to pay a third party service to launder your items, you are able to completely eliminate that expense with your own in-office combination washer and dryer. LG models only require a connection to hot and cold water, and access to a drain. You do not have to worry about having dryer venting installed or adding new plumbing, if you have access to a kitchen sink in your break room. With the addition of an optional wheel kit, and kitchen sink conversion kit, your unit becomes completely portable and is able to be stored out of the way whenever it is not needed.
A LG Washer Dryer Combo Uses Cold Water and Condensation to Dry Clothes
The ventless technology found in a LG washer dryer combo uses condensation and cold water to help dry your clothes. During the drying cycle, the air in the unit is heated and starts to dry your clothes. As the air becomes saturated with moisture from the wet clothes, it is routed through a condensing chamber within the rear of the unit. Cold water is used to help keep the condensing chamber cool, so as the warm, moist air passed through it is cooled and water is released from the air before it is returned to the main drum. This cycle is repeated until the clothes are dried. All of the water that is removed through the drying process is simply pumped down the same drain as the wash water.
