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.
6 years and still running fine (touch wood!!)
Purchased this machine in June 2013 after previous machine (electrolux) died. This machine is used daily with no major issues detected. I mainly use the intensive cycle at 1400 rpm (64 mins) and it cleans the clothing well and hasn't ruined anything. Delicates and woolens have all come out fine. The only time an item/s hasn't come out clean is if I haven't cleaned the rubber door seals and run the machine on an empty hot wash every now and then. For smaller loads the quick wash at 1400 rpm (34 mins) works well. As with most things, there...is usually something that you don't like about a product. I find the noise coming from the hose as it is filling to be rather loud - something I didn't notice with the electrolux. I thought that said previous machine was loud during the spin cycle, but I consider this machine to be louder. I don't like how the door doesn't open as soon as a load is complete. And god help if you find something else to put in once the load has started. It feels like forever before the door unlocks! All in all though, it's a good machine in my opinion
Purchased in June 2013.
Bought this model to replace my previous LG model which lasted me for just under 15 years.. It was on sale as it was being superceded by the newer model. I couldn't be happier with it. I spin everything on 1400 rpm so my clothes feel practically dry when I take them out. I do tend to use the cold wash only as there are only myself and partner to wash for. It is so quiet that I sometimes have to check to make sure it's still washing!! I love the little jingle it plays when the cycle is finished. Highly recommend any LG product.
Appalling after sales support
It's been a great machine but it developed a problem 4 years down the track it's starting togive a musty stale smell from within the drum and so we rang the helpline which is in the Philippines and you CANT get an aussie number for their head office there actually ISN'T one so when I tried to explain the problem I couldn't understand a word she said so asked to speak with some one else and she just hung up on me !!! and worst still you cant get in touch with the company to lodge a complaint so they do what they like , because of this we'll never buy another LG product hope their happy now.
No issues, clean clothes
Quiet unit with 1400 remember spin, no noticeable drain on power bills, does like to walk a little however this may be due to the floor it's on. Ha email owned for 3 years with no issues and all seems to be on the up. Use the cold wash mostly however the medical rinse gets used when the kids are sick. All in all very happy

Great washing machine..
we have been extremely happy since we got this LG washing machine to replace our old LG washing machine that lasted for 10 years.. cleans and rinses clothes really well.. very gentle on colors.. it is reasonably quite and love the music it plays when the cycle is finished..
Don't say more
I bought this product on 2015 I guess.
Stills working perfect.
I loved, liked LG products.
I've got Lg brand for my Luxury curv Tv, washing machine, refrigerator. It all lg brand on main stuff in house.
But recently I thought only has trouble with repair service cuz it's bit poor.
Great product, convenient to use
Great product, very easy to use with different modes for different purposes or clothes types. I mainly use the quick 30 mode, which has my clothes clean in 30 minutes! The LCD screen also shows how much time is left on each cycle which is very convenient. Reliable product and not too noisy.
LG is very producing quality washing machines. The direct drive technology with 10 years warranty is the best. Less noise and lots of options to choose. Does the job well. Can be more harder in washing stains and needs that kind of option, otherwise this is a good machine for the price. Recommend LG Washing Machines.
works well, no problems
Easy to use, I mainly use delicate cycle which takes 47mins and does one wash two rinses. Use this cycle as I am sensitive to some washing detergents. Front door is a little hard to close and I have to press hard at times before machine will start. Washes and rinses well on delicate cycle. Fairly quiet though it vibrates the floor (wooden on footings) during spin cycle. Would have liked the door hinged on the right side to make it easier to load and unload. Over the past few years of use have not had a problem with it.
Great washer but one major flaw!
This washer dryer combo COULD HAVE been great... but it has a major flaw. It washes well, good modes, great build quality. Very simple to use and intuitive controls. The spin cycle can be a bit violent... we have leveled the feet but the thing rattles the old house we live in... so we max out at 800 rpm.
The major issue is that this thing holds your clothes hostage! If you use it to dry anything... It locks and won't release your clothes until the cool down is complete. Big problem... cool down takes several hours! It gets worse... t...here is no timer to show you how much time is left! Not only that but the dryer is about 50% effective. I regret getting a 2in1 now and wish we had saved money getting a separate dryer and washer. Oh well, lesson learned... luckily we rarely dry things in it, and if we do... we do it knowing it could be 6 to 8 hrs.
Washes OK but it is NOISY !
Bought this, my second LG, just over a year ago. It washes ok, I usually use the 30min cycle (35 mins when using 1400 spin). My machine is definitely NOT QUIET. It is considerably noisy. There is also a knocking noise in the pipes when the machine is filling which we have become used to.
Great reliable washing machine
I've had this washing machine for about a year now and I've found it to be very reliable. I've had no issues at all. The "standard" cotton mode is generally what I use and it washes my clothes well in 1.5-3 hours (depending on how big the load is).
I've found that its a relatively quiet machine, even when completing a 1400 rpm spin. I wouldn't call it "whisper quiet", but its certainly quieter than other machines. I have it running in my apartment and have no problem with the amount of noise it makes.
My only minor issue is that the door takes a minute or so to unlock once a cycle finishes. Can be a little annoying if you're in a rush.
Great washing machine, questionable longevity.
We purchased this washing machine back in 2014 to replace our LG front loader that I bought as a factory second.
First impressions the machine is much quieter with the direct drive motor. It great not being able to hear it running.
I have always found LG washers to clean our clothes well. This is our 3rd LG front loader. We always use the 30 minute cycle to clean our mildly dirty clothes, on the odd occasion we will use another cycle.
Beat feature of this machine is definately the 30 minute quick wash cycle and the direct drive motor....Cons: After owning this machine for 3 years now, a few things are starting to question how long it will last. This machine and the previous LG had an issue with the door switch, where we would start a cycle and would have to give the door a nudge so the machine would start its cycle. Second issue, the washing machine no longer beaps or makes any sound to say it has finished a cycle.
Best front loader machine i have ever bought,the direct drive motor make it run much quieter and balances the washing evenly when it spins,I also like how it heats up the washing,if you want it to.LG is a brand that i can trust they have been around since thomas edison,just a different name back then.It is very quiet it has a musical tone just to let you know it,s finished.

Quiet and effective
We purchased this model one year ago, after our previous LG washing machine had started leaking from the detergent tray. Given that our previous LG lasted 10 years, we decided to stick with the brand. Reviews on the WD14022D6 were good and accurate.
The WD14022D6 is whisper quiet. During washing, you see the drum move, but you do not hear it except for some very faint sound of water moving around, which is only audible if you are right up-close. The direct-drive makes a huge difference. When on centrifuge there is some noise, but it is not e...xcessive. The 1,400RPM centrifuge is extremely effective, and clothes come out significantly dryer compared to our previous machine (which only did 800RPM). The difference is that clothes now fully dry within a day during winter, compared to multiple days. The WD14022D6 has other improvements compared to the older machine. The feet are more easily (and reliably) adjustable for balancing. The soap dispenser tray has a better design. The WD14022D6 weighs laundry carefully and does a great job at working out how much laundry there is, how long to wash, and balances the weight well before starting a spin cycle. Before buying it, I compared it with other brands. Samsungs look nice, but reviews were very poor. Bosch has a good reputation, but I found the build quality of the display model inferior to LG. The WD14022D6 is a great machine from a brand which has established a reputation for reliability in washing machines.
If only that bell stopped chiming.
The washer itself is ok. The cycle times are long so I use the shorted time possible.
It still cleans. But then again my kids go through that many clothes a day, im sure they weren't dirty to begin with.
They come out reasonably dry (sometimes i wonder if I washed them at all).
But at the end the bell that rings to let you know your washing is done. Doesn't stop. I always used to put my washing on before leaving the house and thought when I came back the washing had finished at the same time.
But no. It just doesn't stop.
singing washing machineo
I love the 30 minutes cycle, it washes great then spins dry all in that time, then it plays a little tune so I know it is finished. Just need to wait a couple of minutes for the door to release. With 7 people in our house, there is always a lot of washing, so with this 30 minute cycle, I can have it all on the line in no time.

Great washing machine
It dries the clothes super quick as the spin is so powerful. I havent had any issues however have only had it for 4 months. The only downside is that when it notifies me that its finished it takes about a good 5 minutes before the door unlatches which really annoys me.

Great washing machine for the price
I love it, all the functions that it has, from 30min wash to woolen clothing. My brother hasn't complained about this washing machine, so to me it must be good. Washing things is great, comes up nice and clean. I just wish that LG would be like Asko washing machine, where it only uses 1 tap for cold and hot water.
