Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love how you have simplified the panel for operation. This is my third LG front end loader,I get about 5 years out of them as they are very heavily used with my big family. I love how you have simplifed the panel for operation, each new model easier to use than the previous one. The only problem I seem to have is the spring wire surrounding the gasket on the opening, with wear tends to become loose and will often slip off, causing the gasket to leak. 5 years may not seem like much, when you are washing up to 5 times a day for 3 generations, it is a lot of wear and tear. The previous washer was still working, we gave that to our son, and we updated, to have something new for us now that the family has left home finally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the machine appears well built and preforms very well except for one thing on spin it tends to attempt to walk out of the room To rectify problem checked level several times adjusted due to settling and even placed rubber pad under base. We have fitted a cub board metal under machine bought from the store to assist with my partners back issue and may give it a go without this installed to see if the problem is from the base . Have looked up the washer on goggle and it appears common problem on spin . have you got any suggestions???? to help me out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Im so in love with this machine! I previously had an LG 7.5kg front loader for almost 12 years and never had a problem with it. After 12 faithful years it broke down and to repair it was almost the cost of buying a new machine. We did a bit of research before going to look at machines and found that the LG models where up there with the best. We went to Bing Lee in Penrith and the salesperson there was fantastic and confirmed to us the LGs were great. I was quite happy to stay with the LG front loader machine as i also had an LG vacuum cleaner for a long time too and never had a problem with it either. The hardest choice was whether to go the 7.5kg or 8.5kg, but since we now have two boys we decided the bigger one was probably better. Im so in love with this machine. Its so quite and i love all the features on it! Especially the quick 30..great for school uniforms during the week! Im so glad we purchased this machine and would recommend it to anyone! Thanks LG!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a pleasure doing the washing now! I have only had this machine for a week, it was highly recommended by the sales rep and I'm so glad I took his advice. It's so easy to use, really quiet and each wash that has come out has been amazing. I love this machine, I only wish I'd got one sooner - it beats my old top loader hands down. Everyone should seriously consider this washer for their next machine, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Front Loader I purchased this 8.5 kg machine approx. 1 month ago, after our previous front loader (not LG) had rusted & stopped washing/rinsing properly. Two friends & Choice magazine recommended LG washing machines. The washing time for the largest load has dropped by 1 hour from the previous machine. The clothes etc feel better and are drying quicker even when the 400rpm spin setting is selected. Plus I can do a genuine cold wash in most of the cycles. This machine is so quiet that I really need the little tune to alert me to the cycle being finished. Haven't tried all the available cycles yet, but are working my way through them. I do suggest keeping the manual handy at first, to refer to when setting up the cycles. The process for selecting options is quick to pick up and you will be on your way in no time. Also, the larger door makes loading & unloading easier, especially for towels & sheets. If you are looking for a hard working, reliable front loading machine, this is the equipment for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and efficient front loader I purchased this LG 8.5 kilo front loader after reading a positive review in Choice Magazine. This quiet and water efficient front loader is easy to use and it washes all kinds of fabrics superbly. If you are switching from a top loader to this machine, be aware that the typical wash cycle is 1 hour 15 minutes. It is worth the wait because the washing result is excellent. A useful tip ... Use only front loader wash powder, and use it in moderation. More powder does not produce a better wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Reliable Hardworking Family Appliance We purchased this product some months ago converting from a Top Load Washer to a Front Load Washer.. we will not look back. The sales assistant stressed to us about the change, about how different it will be and to read our Manual very well to make sure we optimise our usage of the machine. At first... I was a little apprehensive, thinking I was going to be in for a long period of adjustment and change.. BUT it was far from that! It was so VERY easy. I use different programs for my washing and I have not had one problem. Now I must stress.. I do use this machine as a work horse. I have children who use Full Time Modern Cloth Nappies and the Nappy's in this machine come out sparkling.. SO so clean, far better than my Top loader ever did. And time you ask? Well granted it's a little longer.. But not by a lot. In my old machine it would take on average 57 mins for a wash. In the front loader it takes 1hr and 15 minutes. No big deal to worry about. We average about 7-10 Loads per week. My husband wears Business Shirts and they wash excellently.. we have not noticed a problem with Creasing/Wrinkles at all on the higher spins (And his Shirts can be rather sensitive- in our top loader they would crease terribly) My kids uniforms and filthy clothing come out CLEAN. No stains, they are clean. Washing Powder/ Liquids are not an issue, I have a child with Eczema and had to wash clothes in a certain way in my Top Loader. The skin care program on this machine takes away any worry and has done brilliantly on removing any left over soap residue, his skin has not flared up and it really is peace of mind. I've used many of the different cycles and by far they all do exactly as they are supposed to. Even if you may only need a few of them, the rest are really a bonus for you and future proofing yourself for on the chance you may need to use them at some point! The 1400 spin works really well, as the drying times are significantly reduced, compared to our Top Loader. (important if you have the cooler weather and no dryer!) Especially for Modern Cloth Nappies, they take a long long time to dry- Not any more! Using less water.. It's quiet (even on 1400 spin) It's simple to use, understand and has many options. You're buying a Hardworking Appliance, you need reliability, and to future proof yourself.. this product gives you exactly that.
