    • Best answerWashing machines come in varying capacities given in cubic feet and the LG Front Loading Washers range from 2.3 cubic feet to the largest capacity at 5.8 cubic feet. Manufacturers use different labels to indicate capacities and LG uses labels like "Mega Capacity" to indicate the largest capacities of 5.2 cubic feet to 5.8 cubic feet and "Ultra Large" or "Large Capacity" to refer to Front Load Washers that have a capacity of 4.5 cubic feet. Washing Machine buying guides consider Front Load Washers with capacities of at least 3.8 cubic feet as being large enough to accommodate a King Size Comforter. Comforters come with a variety of filler material which will determine how fluffy the comforter is, but at 4.5 cubic feet, the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2016 LG - 4.5 Cu. Ft. 12-Cycle Front-Loading Washer - White, Model # WM3670HWA will comfortably accommodate most King Size Comforters if not all...^IFV

    • Best answerHonestly, I don't feel they resolved the mold and mildew problem. I am constantly have wretched odors in my clothes and washer AFTER a wash has been completed. The washer is only five months old for me. I have now used five affresh drained the hose three times at the bottom of the washer cleaned the filter, I leave the door open after each wash, and I use HE laundry soap and make sure that there is not too much. My clothes continue to smell like mildew and just consistently get worse. Not to mention if I sweat just a little bit doing house chores or minimal yard work I smell like mildew . It's absolutely horrible. I have now had someone out to look at the washer since I have ran out of options. They said there is nothing they can do. So if you get this washer good luck.

    • Best answerThe ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.5 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity with Steam Technology, Model # WM3670HVA has a TUB CLEAN cycle that should be used regularly on a monthly basis to minimize the possibility of mildew and musty smells. It should be run with Tub Cleaner or lime scale remover which you can find at your local supermarket or home improvement stores.If using liquid chlorine bleach, the bleach should be added in the liquid bleach compartment. There are powdered cleaners and tablets available and if using powdered cleaner, you will need to pull out the liquid detergent cup and add the cleaner to the main wash detergent compartment. If using cleaning tablets, place them directly in the washer tub. Depending on how severe the mold and mildew is, you may need to run the tub clean cycle a few times.The door seals should be cleaned once a month to prevent the build-up of dirt in the door seal. Wear rubber gloves and protective goggles. Use a solution of a 3/4 cup (177 ml) of liquid chlorine bleach diluted in 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water and soak a sponge or soft cloth in it then use that to wipe all around the door seal. Leave the door open to allow the door seal to dry completely. If you decide to replace the door seal. The part number for the Door Boot Seal is #MDS47123602. This is rated as a Do-It-Yourselfer and will require basic hand tools and some disassembly will be required. Having some repair experience is helpful. You can visit our site at to find an LG Authorized Parts Distributor that you can order the seal from...^IFV

    • Best answerWhere did the 6" come from??? The Install 'requirements' note 4" at the rear, but that is rather general and basically a CYA. Where are your house water & drain connections? If they are in the back of the unit you will need the space - if they are on the side, away from the rear then the limiting factor becomes the water connection to the washer itself. Space work-around is to use a GOOD 90 degree gooseneck hose set [seems the recent stainless hoses have a manufacturing defect - one or two core MFGr's sold under several labels. they leak. good nylabraid gooseneck available], a straight connection hose will use too much space. Using the gooseneck, you can get 3 - 3.5" gap and still have good air flow.
