      I have an iPhone 7 and the app in great. Wifi setup is really easy in the "LG Smart ThinQ" app and I always get notifications on my phone whenever the washing or drying is done. Overall, great Wifi functionality.

        Yes my LG washer is stackable. The pedestal stand is a bit expensive but worth every dime, it sure helps my back, don't have to bend over to load and unload clothes.

      My laundry room is 59 inches wide, 56 inches high and 35 inches deep, is it enough for this washer and the matching 7.5 Cu Ft drier?   (1 Answer)

        The LG 4.5 Cu. Ft. 14-Cycle High-Efficiency Front-Loading Washer with Steam and Wi-Fi Connectivity, Model # WM5000HVA and its matching Dryers, the 7.4 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity TurboSteam™ Electric Dryer w/ On-Door Control Panel, Model # DLEX5000V or Gas Dryer, Model # DLGX5001V all have a width of 27". The recommended clearance spacing for the sides is 1 inch and an inch between the units so you will need at least 57". The dryers have a depth of 32 13/16" (54" with the door open) and the recommended clearance spacing for behind the unit is 5 inches. If your laundry room is only 35" deep, you don't have enough room to fit the dryer in and would not even be able to open the door since you need a depth of at least 60 inches for the door to open fully. The washer also has a depth of 32 13/16" and a depth of 55" with the door open and the recommended clearance behind the washer is 4 inches so you also need 60 inches for that well...^IFV

          I add the liquid color safe bleach and fabric softener at the same time. The important thing to remember is to make sure you add them into the right dispensers.

          The ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2016 LG - 4.5 Cu. Ft. 14-Cycle High-Efficiency Front-Loading Washer with Steam and Wi-Fi Connectivity - Graphite Steel, Model # WM5000HVA is designed to use only HE (High-Efficiency) detergents. Depending on whether you are using Liquid or Powdered detergent, if you are using color-safe bleach, you would add it to the main wash using detergent of the same type. If you do not exceed the manufacturer's recommendations for either, you will not exceed the maximum fill line...^IFV
