6 Motions, 1 Amazing Wash Performance

Due to its design and unique to LG, 6 Motion Direct Drive is able to perform various drum motions or a combination of different motions depending on the wash programme selected. Combined with a controlled spin speed and the ability of the drum to rotate both left and right, the wash performance of the machine is greatly improved, giving you perfect results every time.

Direct Drive Motor

Leading the way for a quieter, cleaner wash No belt & Pulley - Less noise - Energy Saving - More Drum Capacity - Durable By eliminating its belt and pulley, LG’s Inverter Direct Drive System increases the motor’s efficiency - thus cutting back on energy use and makes it less susceptible to breakdowns. The simplified system helps reduce noise levels as well. The direct drive motor that runs our washing machines is reliable as well as quiet. We guarantee it won’t let you down. In fact, we trust it so much that all machines come with a 10 year warranty on the motor and all its parts as standard – even though there’s nothing standard about it.

Smart Diagnosis

Smart Diagnosis

At some point in your washer's life it will need some TLC. However reliable your machine it can't yet split your lost socks out of the filter drawer! We just made service so much easier. Now there is no need to wait for an engineer to detect a problem you could have solved yourself. Just dial Smart Diagnosis and wait for the telephone to tell you what to do. Now that really is smart!

Too quiet for words

The Direct Drive motor in our washing machines is now so quiet that you could run it in the middle of the night without disturbing your sleep. Ssshhhhh!

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 13 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. 05 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 20 October 2015
