What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good/nice machine this is the 4th L G product I have purchased and all have lived up to my expectations. I first encountered L G products whilst living in south africa and the first thing i did on returning to the UK was purchase a telivision and a washing machine from Tesco both L G products and they have been superb and have never let me down so much so that i have now bought this latest machine for use in my out side facilities where the articles to be washed will be extremely dirty. The servie from tesco has been superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent machine It is easy to use, I use only half the amount of soap powder I used previously, it washes thoroughly and it's very quiet. What more do you want!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good washer like high spin speed (1600rpm) & relatively quiet with direct drive drum. all bar 3 of programmes are half or less of quoted max 8kg. cold feed only, don't know why cannot get hot water feed too; my old LG had dual water feed & so I wasn't using heater in machine often. time will tell for reliability as only had 6 weeks (20dec2014)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from AVOID THESE WASHING MACHINES!!!! This machine looks nice but don't be fooled, This machine does not wash clothes properly. When I have tried to call LG I had an obnoxious person called Mark who has fobbed me off and keeps telling me that there is nothing wrong with the machine, I even asked for someone to come and look when the wash has finished to see what the clothes look like and was told they don't get people out to look. people stick with a zanussi they are so much better!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good all rounder for a family who has lots of dirt quiet and reliable. Its early days but I am very satisfied with it. Good spin but clothes not like dishrags afterwards. Great range of programmes- still trying them out. Hope it lasts as long as my previous LG - 10+ years
