Direct Drive Motor

Leading the way for a quieter, cleaner wash No belt & Pulley -Less noise -Energy Saving -Capacity -Durability 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!

Too quiet for words

Less Vibration

Having the motor attached directly to the drum gives a more stable, balanced system, making sure your washer stays quietly where it was installed rather than dancing across your floor.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LG value and quality continues to be excellent. This is the second LG Direct Drive washing machine I have owned and it was bought solely on the excellent quality and performance that its predecessor gave. It was in daily use for almost 16 years!! I would thoroughly recommend the brand to anyone. Brilliant!! 06 May 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Noisy spray recirculating pump I purchased an LG F1681TD in January 2013 and I noticed straightaway a loud intermittent buzzing from the machine. I contacted LG who sent an engineer, and he informed me that LG had replaced the spray recirculating pump with a cheaper version and this was causing the irritating buzzing noise. I have since contacted LG Customer Support again, who admit that the noise is apparent but say LG's policy is to not replace the pump as it is still working. I find this unbelievable as the noise is so irritating. I am not at all happy with LG's customer care and would not purchase another LG product. 26 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A well designed and engineered machine. A 6 month trial is perhaps not long enough to assess the machine's reliability but its performance as a washer of clothes and linen appears to be very good over that time. It has a good selection of programs (not all of which I have tried as yet) but I have found that the Quickwash (30 mins at 30C) is adequate for all but the occasional heavily soiled item. The main problem I have found is excessive vibration during the spin dry cycle. In spite of being mounted on some rather expensive rubber feet there is more vibration than I would like. It is probably exacerbated by standing on a suspended wood floor and I guess it would be much reduced if standing on a solid concrete floor. 31 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is best washing we have ever brought This really is a top bit of kit. Easy to use, looks good, save loads of money drying clothes as the 1600 rpm spin means clothes are bascally dry when cycle is finish. The direct drive makes this machine really quite even when spinning at high speed. Smart diagnostic system also very clever idea along with drain pipe if filter becomes blocked, this saves you dumping water over kitchen floor when trying to catch water in a bucket as on previous machines I, ve purchased in the past. Highly recommend this LG machine. 14 December 2012
