My first front loader washing machine. I'm impressed!
After years of top loader washing machines, I chose a front loader after an unhappy experience with a new top loader. And happy I did! Although I need to sit on a stool to access the machine as it sits on the floor, the wash results make up for this inconvenience. I thought front loaders had long wash cycles, but this machine has a 30 minute option for lightly soiled clothes and the results are very satisfactory. In fact, I am impressed with the results of all the wash options, and there are many! I really like that I can choose a rinse and spi...n, and spin only option for hand wash garments. Although I now rarely hand wash as the LG does a beautiful "Delicates" wash. The only thing annoying is the melody played at the end of the cycle, particularly as the machine can not be opened for another few minutes.
Such a waste of money, very poor quality
We bought this model 2.5 years ago with a new baby on the way, and it's now about to be replaced already. The rubber gasket tore within 2 years and now the cycle doesn't complete properly, the cost is too much to repair so we'll upgrade to a better quality Bosch this time.
LG customer service was absolutely awful when we queried the rubber gasket quality, so we're done buying LG appliances. Avoid.

Silent and reliable washing machine
Efficient and reliable washing machine. Very quiet and different programs.Had a top loader before, but a front loader high spin cycle is great. Lots of short washing cycle options too witch is great for busy life, and even it doesn’t compromise the quality of wash.
Had it more than 3 years, and have no problem wit it
Decent machine, good value with some quirks
Was looking for a decent machine for couple that was economical as our old Omega washing machine suddenly died.
We went to Bing Lee and go this machine for $600. That was 2 years ago
We thought it was very quiet during the wash cycle. Very impressive and had to check on occasion if it was still running. Gets noisier during spinning cycles. Decent selection of wash programs, and we were happy with our purchase.
The machine can often tangle clothes. E.g when I washed business shirts, all the...
So far so good
3.75 star energy rating, 4.5 star water rating. Very happy with this LG front loader, bought 2.5 years ago, $670, Betta Home Living (after serious negotiation). Works really well, washes well, no strange noises, more than enough wash settings, and as far as I know is cheap to run the water, electricity and wash powder.
Good for a front loader.
It seems to do all the right things, washes well & reliable. I’ve had a similar LG before & they seem to go the distance. The clothes spin dry nicely & fits a generous load of washing. I prefer a top loader because I think the agitator washes the clothes much better however due to the laundry configuration & benchtops I’m restricted to front loaders. Would still purchase another LG front loader if I had to next time.
I find the selection of programs comprehensive, but tend to stick to stick to only the same 2-3. Very silent and economical, I love the tune it plays when cycle is finished. It's a bit annoying when you don't wait long enough after it though and try to open the door too quickly.

too loud after 5 years
It used to be quite good. But a few problems after 5~6 years. One day it stopped running. My husband got it fixed. And recently it makes very loud noise which gets on my nerve. Quite fretting if it will be out of order one day. I like that it can heat water up to 95 degree and sterilize laundry.
Ok for a reasonable price
Bought from Harvey Norman with Amex offer and free delivery and removal of old machine.
A bit small but does a decent job.
Many settings available but we usually run 30 minutes cycle to save power and water.
Quiet and does not vibrate excessively during spinning. So far only stop functioning once but I think because I loaded too much
Great washing machine
Having had a bad experience with a previous LG washing machine I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing from them again. However, LG have really upped their game and this machine is very good quality. It is big enough to cope with our family of five's demands. it is quiet enough that it doesn't bother you.. The features are plentiful (I love the 30 minute economy mode best). Overall a very good washing machine for a fairly decent price.
This is perfect! Cant live without
Needed a washing machine for my new house so this was the one i bought. reasonably priced and have to say it doesnt miss a beat for a family of 5 washes everything we need to and it is still going strong 2years on. quiet for a washing machine and plays a nice tune. happy campers :)

Good value for money
Did a lot of research and finally bought this because of Choice recommendation. It's our first front load washing machine and we are happy with it. Quiet, efficient, easy to operate.
There is just one thing I am not satisfied, the clothes are not thoroughly rinsed on the quick 30 cycle. Need to run another rinse+spin cycle.
Lg washing machine
Cleans all right, bit louder than earlier. Normally we use only 30 min cycle all the time but it comes with lots of different cycles to run for all kind of cloths like wool, cotton. I like most feature is timing, child lock and tub clean it self. Recommend this product.
The machine works fine. It's a little bit loud, but it's quieter than my old lg washing machine. And it got all the function I need. It's great value for the price. Everything is good for the machine, the only issue is that the new lg washing machine causes the water hammer issue.
Does the Job perfectly for what I need
It does what we need cleans the clothes well, and haven't had any of our clothes fade so far. It is a little loud but we don't mind it too much as our old machine was much louder. Also love the electronic buttons and the quick wash feature. It has a very welcoming ring when you turn the machine on.
Good solid washing machine with frustrating lock feature
Bought after our previous washing machine broke down.
The machine has good load capacity and an alright energy and water rating. Most useful feature is being able to adjust the temperature and speed of spin regardless of setting, allowing us to tailor our washing to the materials.
Frustratingly it takes a while after the completion of washing for the door to unlock (~10 minutes) which makes it difficult if you're wanting to line dry something asap...
Does the job
The washing machine works fine. Has all the functionality that our family need. Not too noisey. Washes sufficiently, has a quick 30 wash function that is handy for lightly soiled clothes washes clothes in 30 minutes. Was really reasonably priced which is the reason we purchased it. Would recommend for families large or small.

Good value machine
I have never had a front loader before and I love it (I am short so it does help) I have had it for just on a year and have had no issues with it.
Pros - Great machine, good selection of settings, easy to use and keep clean, cleans clothes well. Good value machine for its capacity and price. Plays a nice tune when the washing in done.
Cons - spin cycle is a bit noisy and it vibrates the house a little (but if I am in a different part of the house I know its nearly finished) and I wish it had a add - a - wash window, would be nice to throw extra things in as I am use to a top loader, any missed items just have to wait for the next load.
This washing machine washes your clothes. By using laundry detergent and the appropriate setting, it can wash your clothes. After it washes your clothes, it drains the water through the drain. And after that, it notifies you by a sequence of beeps or some musical tone. After which you can load the washing machine again with your soiled clothes and start the cycle again.
I love this machine + excellent value for money under $500 dollars on special
A very quiet machine*(see note),Spin is especially quiet , this machines technology doesn’t disappoint digital display and idiot proof door + timing for a dark late night laundry it’s almost teen proof, *(very quiet mostly although plays a tune when done and when starting.) Washes very well,this much more compact machine has replaced a large noisy 10 year old American top loader that didn’t have a filtering option,
I recommend that you read all the installer instructions, tags, travel bolts, levelling etc,very carefully as I’ve read a few t...

Questions & Answers
Can someone tell me which inlets are which (which is hot and which is cold) as my new housemate brought their machine but we don’t know which one to connect to hot tap.
Power button makes a ticking noise but does not start. It will eventually start after turning off and trying again a few times. Any ideas what could be causing this. The machine is about 4-5 years old.
No idea sorry. Wild guess, maybe try and dismantle that switch panel and wiggle any connections. There again it's probably mainly printed circuit and possibly needs repair or replacing.
Have you tried giving it a couple of good thumps with something softish. My Mum used to do that with me when I was young and acting up. Quite effective from memory.
