All you wish for in a washer!
My washing machine is fantastic. With four children the machine is used daily. The machine has a few features that I particularly like ...each wash is measured/weighed to establish how long the wash will take ...the time save option dramatically reduces the cycle without reducing the quality of the wash ...although I would query why this is not set as a default. The highest spin setting means the clothes are damp rather than wet leaving the machine. It is very quiet when operating and it practically sings to you when you set it and when it stops.

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.

LG F1681TD Washing Machine
OK TD doesn't stand for Turbo Diesel, but does this thing shift. It was a replacement for an older direct-drive LG that blew up.
It's not the quietest when it's spinning, but it is doing 1600 rpm so I'm not bothered. The clothes are so dry that they take half the time in the drier.
It is so easy to use, has a huge door, and gets the clothes so clean.
We have to learn to do smaller washes if we want a quick wash, because this clever beast changes the wash time depending on the load. That's good though, because you get really reliable results.
My only criticism - the tune it plays at completion is too quiet, and the volume can't be turned up (only on or off). That's not bad going!
