What People Are Saying

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Basic machine that works OK, albeit rather noisy This replaced an old Zanussi washer dryer (about 16 years old) and although a more modern facia the functions and performance are very similar, if anything the zanussi had a few more useful options. The LG seems noisier with more vibration than the old machine which is surprising being more modern and using techniques like direct driive. The LG probably dries better. Main reason for getting this was the narrow depth as most machines looked at were too deep to fit under the worktop. 12 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by LG washing machine I purchased this model nearly three months ago and using it weekly. Overall, this is a good machine with few flaws. The good points first, large drum so you can load quite a lot of stuffs and it washes very nicely. I haven't used the drying function much. You can dry only half of the washing load, it is important to load less if you intend to do wash and dry on the same program. A couple of times I used the drying mode in ironing style, so it dried the clothes nicely without making it stiff. Even at 1600 rpm the machine is very quiet and don't vibrate at all. This is very good if you are living in a flat as I do. Now the weak points- Most of the washes are default set, which I mean you can not lower the temperature from 60 to 50 in a programmed Cotton wash. I could do this in my previous Hotpoint machine. Likewise a 40 degree program cannot be changed to 30 for washing jeans. The machine starts with a nice glow of orange light and melody and then ends the wash with the same melody. All good, but when it finishes the washes, it completely shuts down the machine (I mean no lights, no singing all locked shut as if nothing happened) and at this stage the door is completely locked. In the evening if you do a washing program after work, having a couple of drinks, then that's it, you are very likely forgetting that you got clothes in the machine. This happened to me a few times, including forgetting it altogether another day. In my view, this is a big flaw; the machine should have some sort of indicator light as in a mobile phone or at least open the door itself. Otherwise, with the advanced technology, it should have sent you a text message or email reminding you of clothes inside the machine. My old Hotpoint machine had at least the 'END' showed in red light all the time until I switched the machine off. I have checked the LG manual and couldn't find a way around it. 29 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent. i have TVs from LG. Now i have a washing machine. its very quite on spin and drying. the finnish to the machine is really great, we love it. 28 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Early days, but seems to be good As long as you actually read the instructions and take care to install on solid level ground (it is possible that the negative reviewers may have missed some things...) this is a quiet machine that does what it should. As a washer/dryer it will not match drying performance of a stand alone dryer, so don't expect this. But it dries a set of bed sheets or a bundle of shirts & undies in an hour. You'll probably want to switch off the irritating tunes & beeps! Remains to be seen whether it stands the test of time. 24 January 2016
