What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I had my last LG model for 9 yrs. without any problems, and it was still in working order when I upgraded to this newer model. This newer machine is just as good as my old model and washes just as good, I hope this one lasts as long as the other one. There are a couple of minus points namely, this machine is very heavy so it wont be moved very often to clean behind and the wool programme is very different to my old machines, namely a shorter wash and only a 800 spin, found another programme that suits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the easiness of the programme change . I was very apprehensive about buying a new washer ,as I had my old one for years. I am a lady aged 72 yrs. so it was not easy for me to make a final choice .After looking on the internet for what seemed like hours ,I kept going back to this particular model .I eventually plumped for this one ,and I am really happy with it ,it is so quiet ,and plays a lovely little tune at the end of each cycle. Good cleansing results ,plus peace of mind with my 5 year guarantee .Thank You L G .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet machine having just bought machine to early to give an in depth review but on the surface all seems good. Has an extremely quiet spin cycle which is great as live in a flat and am conscious of washing to late and annoying neighbours below. The machine itself has all the relevant cycles needed and generally seems a well built machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Silent! We bought this item after our old machine packed up. What a difference! The new direct drive system is almost silent, there are tons of programmes to choose from and its economical too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Great I have owned this washing machine for over a month now, I am finding that it cleans a lot better than my last machine. The wash cycles are long but I have decided to always use time saver, the wash cycles are a lot shorter then and clothes come out clean, even toddler clothes. There is even a duvet wash option and the drum is so big I think it would fit a summer kingsize or double duvet in, no problem. The washing machine is very quite even when spinning and there's also a silent wash option but the washing machine is so quiet and don't see myself ever using that option. The machine when used on some options automatically weighs the load and adjusts the time according to the weight, you can also use time saver with these options to shorten the wash time. There is no 30 degree wash, there's 20. 40. 60 and 95 degree options. Overall I am pleased with this washing machine is is very easy to use, the panel is touch screen, it comes with a 1 year parts and labour guarantee and also a 10 year guarantee on the direct drive motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best!!! Brought item thru a 3rd party..unbeliveable machine!! Nice tune at start up and finish. Superb washing- clothes feel so soft Very very quiet on spin, only noise you hear is when the machine feels up with water. Would recommend to everyone
