Some days I'm happy, other days not and feeling conned at the moment
NB.: I should have posted this review with the model which seems to be first on the LG list. I did not visually identify it as being my machine as I have the twin set up. I apologise for the confusion.
I have the WD1411SBW model plus the twin drawer machine, 13 kg in total.
I bought this machine because I needed a large capacity washer plus I really liked the idea of the Direct Drive instead of the older belt and wheel technology. The smaller washer underneath seemed like a great idea too.
PROS: It washes well with the cycles it offers o...n the machine. A heavy load of cottons seems to take less time than my 5.5kg Miele doing a smaller load. It is very easy to operate and sings a cute little tune when it is done. It is also much quieter than my Miele and I am enjoying the taller door height. I just put my basket on the floor and take items out one by one and drop them in the basket. I am also finding sheets and clothes are not as tangled as with my Miele. The size of the machine: After installation of the twin setup and allowing for the hoses at the back, the depth is 770mm. The manual states the machine as being 640mm D. GRIPES: The machine does not offer a bigger capacity Delicates/Gentle cycle. The best one I can find is the Easy Care cycle. An example of a recent wash - I had 3 polyester shower curtains I needed to wash. I selected Easy Care, 40 degrees, extra rinse and 400 spin. The cycle took 2 hours 28 minutes and I was not impressed that I needed to iron the curtains. I was not a happy customer. Every time I use the cycle it takes about 2.5 hours. I normally use a Delicates cycle almost as much as a Cottons cycle so this is a big disappointment for me. The little drawer washer is handy but I need a Delicates cycle that offers a bigger load. I am not interested in doing lots of little loads. Also, LG recommend you wipe out your machines and leave them open to dry. This is something I had not considered, especially regarding the small drawer washer. It creates a tripping hazard so if you are considering purchasing a twin washer, keep that in mind. I have to leave mine open for several hours after using it.

This product is actually Washer Dryer WTW1409HCW with Mini washer WTP20WY added on. You can buy WTW1409HCW on its own but you cannot buy the Mini washer on its own.
The washer dryer does the job brilliantly. Everything comes out clean and soft and the dry cycle dries clothes a bit more quickly than our previous Electrolux washer dryer. However, it is a condenser dryer (like all washer dryer combos) so it takes a lot longer than the standalone vented dryers that most people are used to. I have seen many people complaining online about the dryin...
