What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Complaints Purchased this machine over a year ago and still so so glad I did. Literally nothing bad to say about it. I wanted a top load and particularly for the price I paid cant be beat. Saving me a ton on water and hot water bills, the clothes come out clean, the speed wash is my favorite. The one thing I would say is experiment with all the cycles, spins and speeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loads of features and powerful Is very powerful for a top loader and has lots of different cycles to choose from. Probably is as good as you can get from a top-loading washing machine. Has a 'Favourite' option where you can customize the whole wash down to wash length, number of rinses and spins! So this comes in quite handy. Is probably quite good to have if you don't have a well-aired home. You can use 'air-dry' to remove even more moisture before you hang the clothes out. Also not having rubber and having a big opening, it keeps the machine from developing mould. The one-star reviews on here seem to just refer to faulty machines as I have never had those problems before.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Patchy at best On a good day, this machine is tolerable. On most days: the instructions are vague; it arbitrarily changes your settings; and all too often it simply stops altogether in the middle of a cycle. Oh! for the good old pre-clever-machine days!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The features are deceiving Bought this machine in March 2013 and have since been exasperated with the fact that it takes much too long to spin-dry as it keeps taking water to rebalance its wash load. As a result cannot use the delay function as it never finsishes the complete wash-spin cycle. Having owned half a dozen machines before this LG, I would not recommend this Fuzzy-logic machine as there are many better ones on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and efficient Had the machine for a month. Very pleased with the performance and results. Larger capacity than previous machine, but smaller and quieter. It does however interfere with radio reception whilst operating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutly a great washing machine I bought this washer in december 2012 because of its compact external size in the 5.5 kilo range(smallest i could find) for my small appartment. I could not be more happy with my choice. This really is a good product and as good as they proclaim. LOL

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product has got features that i need so easy to use. I was actually looking for a manual washing machine after my washing machine for 18 years service has stopped working properly. But due to the high technology i have to embrace the digital market of washing machine and fell in love with the looks of the machine and bought it and never looked back. Good buy ..
