I hesitated before buying this machine, the 12kg load seemed bigger than I could possibly need. However it simply means that you do less washes in a week and after holidays away it is amazing, no more days of clearing the backlog it's all done in two or three washes! The only problem is carrying all the clothes to the machine - I keep dropping socks on the way because it takes so many clothes! It is really adaptable and you can tailor the time/temperature etc to suit your needs. I was also a little worried that the main control was a little soft to the touch and didn't click round like my old machine but it is absolutely fine and functional.
The only bad thing about it is the temperature and spin speed controls (plus 2 others which escape me right now), which are under the lit display, are difficult to read because they are not lit up. You have to bend down or use a torch to see them easily. Also when standing looking down at the main control selector it is not always clear exactly which one you have selected and you have to duck down a little to check in case you have rested on the one next to your choice.
That said it is still fantastic and it has raised the bar for any future washing machine purchases!

A truly fantastic washing machine which does exactly what it says. It is so quiet you have to actually double check its on. It's ideal for double sized quilts and wash loads are massive with 12kg capacity so it saves on energy bills. Extremely well built and a very classy addition to our kitchen You only get what you pay for and it's worth every penny

Fantastic Washing machine
I have had this machine now since Nov 2011 and thought it was time to leave a review, its fab, very energy efficient and great for us on a water meter, also it cleans really well I put in my mans work jeans which are really dirty and with the steam wash they come out fantastically clean, ive done a king size duvet in it (10.5 tog) and as it keeps the temperature for a little while instead of just working up to 60degrees you know its got rid of a lot of germs! Great with the time delay so you can set it to finish for when you will be arriving back home and great if you have a tumble dryer as the fast 1400 spin is great. I would not hesitate in recommending it, the performance is great and it comes with a 10yr motor guarantee. If you have a smartphone it will tell you what is wrong with it if you have problems and what part you need. If you buy it make sure you get another washing line and another bag of pegs - a full load is like two loads of a normal washing machine!!!

This product has great style performance quality
I bought my LG F1495BDS 12kg Steam Direct Drive Washing Machine after seeing it in my local store what a pice of amazing engineering the look of the machine and how quite it is when running at full power all the different washing techniques but the build quality is just outstanding yes it's fair to say when you buy Lg products you know you are getting the latest technology at a fair price. I have had many different makes of washing machines in the past and all have been a great let down until I bought my Lg I like my machine that much I went and bought the LG TrueSteam™ F1495KDS Drier so now I can dry my clothes during the winter months. Would I recommend LG products to my friends and family you bet I would. When you buy any LG product you are buying outstanding quality, reliability, and piece of mind.
