Pursuit of Silence
We probably have unreasonable expectations 1400 spin on a wooden floor is bound to generate noise.looks good & washes well fingers crossed the price will produce longevity.

Extremely pleased with purchase
After days of searching the Internet on various websites for a good deal on a decent washing machine I came across this magnificent looking LG washing machine , the price was a little more than I originally intended to pay but the £50 cashback offer made it to around the same price as the Samsung ecobubble which I was torn between . I wanted a quiet washing machine as I have a open plan kitchen and my previous washing machine sounded like a plane taking off when you are trying to watch tv, that is what instantly won it for me over the ecobubble as this has the lowest DB rating I could find for the price . I must say it is very quiet I forget it is on sounds like the Humming noise of a fridge. Very impressed by the settings as you can change temp, spin and wash type and it even weighs your wash load. The 1400 spin is very effective and my clothes come out perfect for drying. I also like the way there is a time save option to make wash loads quicker but the running time is great. The 10 year direct drive guarentee was also appealing. The only thing that lets it down is the child lock (pretty pointless) as it locks all buttons apart from the On/Off button (which is lit up and appealing to toddlers) and when pressed it turns off and then you put back on again the settings are reset and you have to start wash again, but to me this is not a big thing for me. So Overall I am extremely pleased with my purchase and have been looking forward to doing my washing :)

This machine is one of the simplest to use I have ever owned, so far absolutely no complaints, it even appears to wash everything better, love the little tune it plays on start up and completion highly recommend this machine. It appears that all the reviews I read before buying were correct. New benchmark for mid priced machines. It definitely out performs my Previous Bosch machine.

This is my second LG Direct Drive washing machine, as I was so pleased with the old one, which kept going strong even though the bearings were on their way out. My only niggle with the new breed is that they are cold fill only - when you have solar heated hot water, you don't really want to pay for your washing machine to heat water. Other than that, it's quiet and efficient and looks great in my black kitchen.
