LG TOP LOADERS DOMINATE CANSTAR BLUE CONSUMER AWARDS

LG’s Top Loader washing machines receive top honours

SYDNEY,  1 July, 2013 LG Electronics Australia (LG) has announced that its Top Loader washing machines have cleaned up in the prestigious 2013 ‘Canstar Blue’ Most Satisfied Customers awards. Highly praised for performance, reliability, quietness and water efficiency, LG’s washers received the highest rating (5 stars) in seven of the eight areas rated, including overall satisfaction.

Canstar Blue is Australia’s first cross-category customer satisfaction ratings company to research, compare and rate products and services according to customer satisfaction.

With the help of leading independent market research company Colmar Brunton, 2500 Australians were surveyed on washing machine use. They were asked to rate their Top Loader in eight categories, including ease of use and water efficiency. LG scored extremely well, receiving five stars in seven categories, beating other top brands for awards praise. This again supports LG’s No. 1 market share position in washing machines, a position that has been held by the brand since 2010.

LG’s Top Loader range received five stars  in the following categories:

  • Overall satisfaction*
  • Performance
  • Reliability
  • Ease of use
  • Quietness
  • Warranty and service
  • Water efficiency

*Overall satisfaction is an individual rating and not a combined total of all ratings

“LG has become a leading brand in the laundry space by focusing on features that consumers are increasingly demanding: reliability; energy and water efficiency; long warranties; and high service levels. We are delighted that Australians welcome our efforts, firstly by buying our products, and secondly by reporting to Canstar Blue that they are happy with their choice,” said Phillip Anderson, Head of Public Relations at LG Australia.

Additionally, LG has demonstrated its commitment to improving the lives of consumers with its innovative and stylish 2013 washing machine line-up.
