Washing Machines Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of washing machine would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Best machine I have ever had.
Cleans very well without ruining or beating up your clothes. Lovely and quiet. I have had this machine for about 14yrs and love it still. Very large load capacity. Can easily wash blankets and quilts. It doesn't use a lot of water and can heat its own if not connected to a hot tap.
Wonderful Machine - 12+ years still going strong
I bought this machine new at Harvey Normans well over 10 years ago and it is still working flawlessly doing 2 or 3 large loads per week.
Think it had a 4 1/2 stars out of five water rating too.
Still looks & functions like new. No rust, no leaks & nil visible signs of wear. Keypad works like day 1.
The only sign of my machine's age is a slightly discoloured door seal but it still seals perfectly.
Never needed repairs or servicing, touch wood.
bullet proof if you can find one.
Dont make them like they used to..
Tough as nails, I just hope I can find enough bits to keep it going for 50 years...
if you find one ..buy it..
bought machine second hand from private dealer..
big heavy machine so check the dimensions do it fits in the laundry. .
blankets, doonahs and heavy rugs are no problem. .
Good Old Machine
We have had our machine now for 10 years, could not count how much abuse it has taken over the years. Its washed dedicates wonderfully, mechanics oily work clothes, bedding not to mention sandy beach towels and bathers. Even shoes!(with a couple of towels) We pack this thing 3 times a week, sometimes I think over 10Kg.
This year the bearings went in it, with a small amount of investigation I found a parts supplier. To my surprise bearings, shaft and seals only $140 cheap. As a mechanic this machine was so simple to repair.
Just now the pu...mp is starting to play up, So its got 2, so swap the wash sprayer one for emptying one. Yeah yeah working again. But I think new pumps might be the go. I presume they wont be much either. So all in all this machine has out lived previous top loaders and is much cheaper to repair. After new pumps I am sure we will get another 10 years, maybe hand it down to the kids! second thoughts maybe not, its to good. Easy to fix (sorry washer Techs). Cheap to fix. Large capacity. water efficient. Was expensive back in 2003 but it has lasted.
Best washer Ever
We have had this machine for 6 -7 years. We have 3 boys and it is in use all the time. for several years we lived across the road from the beach and a lot of sand went through with the clothes. I have had to replace the water pump once and also the stator and circuit board. Fortunately these items were realitvely cheap. When I think of how much washing its done its a wonder we havent needed to do more
big load very quiet beautifully built.
This is an excellent washing machine, however front loaders in general take much longer to wash a load on most settings(a cotton wash can be up to 2:53hr long). You can't soak clothes like you can with a top loader and as the machine locks during washing cycles (holding your clothes hostage until the end of the cycle) you can't access your clothes during a load or "fast forward" your wash if you're in a hurry like you can with a top loader.
No reflection on the LG WD-1019BD-; mine has been an excellent machine...but practically, I still think ...
Better than I first thought.
When I first began using this machine I was really disappointed with the long wash times and the fact that I couldn't access my wash during washing cycles.
I'd been used to using top loaders for years and switching to a front loader was quite a different experience.
LG service was hopeless when I phoned and asked them about water efficiency, and they treated me as if I was the only person in the world who would ask such a question, but being in a drought affected area and being completely dependent on rainwater, I needed to know!
I've used this machine for the past two years and can't fault it yet. It has outperformed all previous washing machines I've owned. Almost went for a top-of-the-range model, very glad I didn't - this machine is excellent value for money.
It's capacity! It was the most family-friendly machine I could find. Excellent performance. Love the 30min cycle which still cleans very efficiently.
This is a Fantastic machine. I had a top loader before this, had all kinds of problems. I can stuff so much in it. I do overstuff it and can sometime do up to 7 full overstuffed 10kg loads in the one day and I have had no trouble at all, I think I have emptied the lint catcher twice and it had vurtually nothing in it.
It does a great job of cleaning the clothes and even when over stuffed it doesn't leave the slimey tracks of washing powder like my old top loader. Most of my washing is done on the quick 30 cycle and it all comes out clean.
Very cranky with LG Australia - will definetly NEVER buy any LG Products ever again. The product was faulty from day 1 was repaired under warrently but always the same fault re-appeared but LG said they have no records showing a warrenty claim as if thats my fault and used this to excuse themselves from helping me.
Granted the machine works well - when it is working
Our machine was borne with a recurring fault - it will not go past the rinse & spin cycle whatever we do it wont spin.
The 1st time I reported to the help desk the lady held the c...
I have had this machine for 18 months now and so far it has been fantastic. I have 3 children and I can put many days worth of washing into one load it's so big. I struggle to fill it a lot of the time. I can fit doona's and bedspreads into it also.
It gets my clothes so clean and they're not heavy and wet by the time it's finished because of the high spin cycle. The fact that I can open it if I forget something once the cycle has started is a godsend.
Apart from it just fitting into my laundry because it is a large machine I have nothing b...
Questions & Answers
Can anyone assist - I cannot select a spin speed above 800 RPM - Selector button does not respond. Also cannot select the time save option - button does not respond.
Why cant I change the spin speed above 800 RPM and cant select time save option. Any help appreciated
I currently have the LG WD-10198D - 10Kg front loader after 15 years it's started to leak due to the internal drum running eccentric & cutting the outer seal, according to the service guy, the cost to repair isn't worth it, my question is, what model do LG recommend in place of the great machine ??
