What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Washing Machine 1 month in and this machine appears to be awesome. Very easy to use, really quiet, you almost cannot hear it when it is washing. Lets hope it's still making us smile in a couple of years, would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product does the job well Overall, I am really pleased with the washer/dryer, it does the job well. One thing to consider is that it doesn't have a "spin only" cycle, just rinse and spin. It took me a little time to open the door after using the "dry cycle" even after the pressing the "start/pause" button and the "cd" (cooling down) symbol going off, it seemed difficult to open the door for a some time. Some of the wash cycles do take a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Early days yet but the machine is smart and fits into the kitchen well. It is flexible in terms of programmes and economic in running costs. It has all the features one would expect of a modern machine and the information panel is easy to read and follow. Cannot fault it but as said it has not yet been used for the full range of available washed. However, the build quality would lead one to suspect that there will not be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competent quiet quality Looks good, seems well made and easy to operate. The instruction manual, like many these days, is not the best but as the machine is easy to use this is not a big issue. One point, that some may think is a missing feature, is the ability to spin clothes without having to rinse them. However, all you do is press the power button, then the spin speed selection button and press start. You don't move the rotary selector knob at all. If you want to perform drying automatically after a wash this is possible, on a limited range of programs, by pressing the Dry button. However, there is no way of selecting the drying mode. I contacted LG who advised when using the wash to dry setting, the drying mode is set to automatic iron dry. Luckily, this is what we always want but it would have been nice to have more granular control. It would also be nice if the quick 30 minute wash could be used with the automatic dry function. The machine is quite and a spin at 1400 has much less vibration than my old machine, even though on a suspended floor, which is not ideal. The direct drive motor is very quite and overall I am very pleased with the performance and function. I even like the tune it plays when switching on and off! (This can be disabled if required.)
