What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality engineering I chose this machine for its quality, looks and performance. I have been pleasantly surprised by its low noise level in operation with the direct drive system, its ability to cope with bulk washing, that is 8 kg and the only complaint I have to date is the maximum spin rate. Perhaps it could have been slightly higher. Other than this I love my LG washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MADE IN POLAND! :-)))) I choose this product because it looks great and it has child lock option which is great if you have kids. However it doesn't lock one button-ON/OFF. So my little one swiched off my washing machine after two hours of washing and I had to reset washing for another 2.5h hours. Which means to waste electricity and water... But it has many other good features and does what it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, quiet, and value for money! I am an independent appliance engineer and visit many different washing machines during the course of a week, a very small number of these are L.G but most of these are very minor faults or usually user error. In particular, the main reason I chose L.G is because of the build quality, the 10 year warranty on the direct drive motor and L.G still allow the drum bearings to be accessed instead of these greedy manufacturers that heat seam the front & rear drum assembly together. Well done L.G!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, so quiet, ssshhh, ssshhh! This washing machine replaced an old faithful that died. The difference in volume is tremendous, we forget it is on until it sings to us to tell us the programme has finished. Don't mind it being in the kitchen. Easy to use and washes well. The time display is also very useful. Our washing machine engineer recommended it very highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great and has great features A really smart looking washing mchine that is easy to use, and has a wide variety of programmes. It is fairly quiet apart from when it is filling with water too. I like the way it weighs the load in order to be more efficient on water consumption. I would definately recommend this washing machine to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features, quiet and efficient Not the cheapest machine to buy, but it is quite,well balanced and efficient. It looks smart and is simple to use. I like the jingle at the end of the cycle so you don't forget to take out the load and dry it.
