What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much focus on a good energy rating The accompanying booklet was less than instructional. My last washing machine [24years old and still working] had a booklet that for each programme stated the intensity of the wash and how many rinses for that programme. The minimum number of rinses was 3 for a small gentle wash, the maximum was 5 for a hot wash [towels, sheets, etc;] After a few disappointing washes that left my washing less than fresh, I realised that the washer automatically only rinses twice, 1 rinse plus 1 rinse with fabric softener, this is not acceptable, there is a feature for adding extra rinses but it doesn't state that in the booklet or on the washer it only says rinse+ or rinse++. I've never seen a washer that only does 2 rinses as standard and can only assume that this is so an A energy rating can be given, after all the extra 2 rinses [ which still isn't enough] adds another 18 minutes to the wash time

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lg is a great washer My lg washer is great and very quite clothes smell lovely once out. Only negatives that really annoyes me on a daily bases the child lock only stops them changing the setting if they hit the power off botton it turns the washer off halfway though a wash. Which really annoys me as my old hotpoint child lock covered every thing including the power botton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent washing machine. This washing machine is superior in every way to our previous machines. It has a very comprehensive program of washing actions, and is much quieter, and vibration free than any other machine we have used. The only slight criticism we have is that the 1200 spin speed does not get as much water removed as we would wish, but that said, the very large drum does remove an acceptable level of moisture. The next model in the range with a 1400 spin speed may be better at water removal, but at a price. We are happy with the compromise, and would recommend this model to anyone wanting a good washer, especially as at present LG are giving a 5 year guarantee with this, and some other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F12A8TDA LG Washing Machine I bought this machine about 2 months ago. It is a really good machine and I am more than happy with it, cleans well and has a suitable amount of programmes to choose from . It's quiet and I love the look too, had so many comments on how nice it looks. Love the sing song sound when you switch it on and when the machine has finished, also love the fact it automatically switches itself off once the cycle has finished. Really happy to recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Machine This is a quality machine that has many features and is easy to use. It is quiet with minimal vibration and the spin is very effective in taking excess water out of the wash load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could have put in some washing powder free Why did I not receive any free softener or powder with my new machine at the cost I could have brought 2 machines from hotpoint which is our normal choice but I pushed my husband to pay the extra price I hope it will be worth it The extra 3 free years warranty was not as straight forward as you say or think after a few calls and emails to you call centre it was sorted out and lastly why do you have to send a invoice in I have the serial numbers and model number is that not good enough it seems your call centre was not sure at first what I need to do to get the extra 3 years warranty .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Washing Machine Our last washing machine lasted 15 years (Bauknecht) without any problems, only replaced because of noisy drum bearings. The LG model has all the features we require plus the addition of a five year machine and 10 year motor guarantee. Have used it for only a week and found it quite and easy to use. The 30 min wash cycle is very useful.
