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.
Reliable, silent, many options A great machine, that is also ver water efficient
There are numerous programs to select what you may want to dodepending on the type of cloths , it has anti allergy cycle, this cycle works, no itchs.
If i listed a down side it would be how long some cyles can take, standard wash 3hrs, anti allergy 4 hours, but there are a host of much shorter as low as well 30 minutes for a full light wash
Dry patches on the clothes in wash cycle.
We bought a "factory second". It arrived with transit bolts & the caps for plugging the transit bolts missing. The hoses were also dirty, AKA used.
It is a 10 kg. front loader, WD14060D6. The water rate on the water rate tag indicates 86 litres when the Cotton Eco cycle is used. I tried the cotton cycle with the drum fairly full & it started washing. I noticed that there were dry patches on the clothes. It did not take any extra water to wet the clothes. The total water use was 17 litres. I tried again with towels & bed sheets. It used 27...
We've had our 10kg front loader for about 12 years now. Family of four with a son that plays rugby, so plenty of times washing team jerseys. Had our first issue just today where cycle won't spin, used 250 ml of vinegar on hot wash cycle for 10 - 15 minutes, cleaned sludge out of machine and now running like new again. Awesome machine, awesome value for money because of life of service.
Clean washing and long operational life
The drain point makes it hard not to make mess when cleaning filter
Washer exceedes expectations!!
I purchased my LG WD14060D6 10 kg washing machine at Christmas time. I have been using it now for 3 months and am more than happy with it. I am so glad the lady at Harvey Norman talked me into the 10 kg machine because I do use the bigger capacity and the 1400 RPM is useful for towels. I previously had a top loader which didn't wash my clothes properly, but this washes them so they actually come out clean :)
I do use the 10 KG capacity and the 1400 RPM is great for towels. Washes fantasticly.
Not quite used to not being able to add clothes after washer starts, but the positive's do outweigh that one thing :)
Love this washing machine
I did extensive research when needing a new washing machine and narrowed it down to this one and a Miele. I decided to go with this because of the large difference in price (and size) and haven't regretted it. Firstly it looks lovely in my new laundry, I love the fact you can pause the wash and open it to add any 'dropped socks' (early on in the wash).
The huge size is a bonus on bed sheet washing day for a family of four. I mainly wash on cold and still finds it does an amazing job. It is very quiet and plays a cute jingle when your load...has finished. The timer countdown is extremely handy as you know exactly how long till you have to hand your washing out. Heaps of cycles to choose from but to be honest I mainly just use 'cotton' or 'Intensive 60' if in a rush. My husband has so far managed to leave in his pockets - coins, pens, beer bottle tops and and even a closed pocket knife and none have damaged the machine. They just collect in the front rubber ring. Only complaint is I am not able to put any sort of child lock on to stop kids playing with machine buttons when not in use! I worry they could climb in and start the machine! You can only lock the buttons when it is in operation. Large size, it looks fantastic, very quiet, timer countdown handy Wish there was a child lock when machine not in use to stop my kids pressing the buttons (to make a nice tune)
Best Washing Machine Ever!!!
Great wash and super quiet great with a large range of settings and you can pause the wash to add clothing. Funny reading other reviews of this machine because of the two bad reviews one is for the wrong machine!!!! Delay start is also a great feature. I can have it start at 4am ready to be hung out first thing. The auto sensor for load size is also handy for those small loads as it greatly reduces wash times and water usage. This review has been submitted 6 months after purchase.
Quality of Wash, Wash Capacity, Quiet really really quiet. Add additional clothing after cycle has started. Delay start
Very happy with this machine
New purchase after Electrolux pump died. I had no idea washing would be so quiet and clean. A 5 year old Electrolux machine left me to believe that all front loaders were basically the same. Of course i know now they are not.
I am very impressed with the job LG has done with this machine. Looks and works great exceeding expectations from a number of standpoints. Had it one month now, no issues. A little skeptical in buying an LG washing machine at first, so glad i did.
Cleaning, ease of use, capacity, appearance.
Cant add extra clothes after cycle starts
I have only had my machine a couple Of days, already I am inlove and wondered what I did without it!
We went from a top loader to this machine with a family of six and couldn't be happier. The machine is so easy to use, so gentle on your clothes and not to mention how much fresher and cleaner my clothes feel!
Louder than I expected but still very quiet compared to old washer.
Ease to use, warranty, energy and water efficiency, size.
Getting used to not being able to add items after cycle starts (coming from a top loader)
Great unit, insanely quite which is great as its next to my lads room. Easy to use. Never had any issues with lg goods as my house is full lg. took out the 5 year replacement warranty and got a great price from Harvey Norman. Better than anywhere else including the net.
Very quite, we'll built.
Advised about not using liquid due to the draw design which is a shame as don't like using powder
Don't bother, buy a decent brand.
Had my brand new LG 10kg front loader delivered on Monday. Couldn't get it to work, when turned on all the cycle lights lit up and all stayed on when the selector dial was turned. Rang LG and was advised it had a major fault. Had the store pick it up and swap if for another brand new LG. First load flooded my laundry as there was a split in the pipe. Didn't get much satisfaction from LG so advised store to pick it up and swap it for another brand of machine. Very disappointed as I did lots of research before buying this machine.
size, overall look of machine, ease of use.
2 faulty machines in 3 days isn't good enough along with the 'don't care' attitude.
Excellent results, quiet, gentle on clothes.
Upgrade from excellent 25 year old Maytag top loader. This is our first Top-loader.
From the first wash, the results have been excellent giving much cleaner clothes with less water. It takes longer to run a cycle than the old top-loader but gives much better results.
The installation was easy and the adjustable feet made alignment simple.
The noise is low and the controls are easy to use. It has washed a full range of materials, from work clothes to delicates with no complaints at all.
Excellent results. Quiet, Ease of use. Low water use.
Love this weasher-our first front loader and it does a great job on all washing-we have three kids and live were there is alot of red dirt.
I like the fact it can heat water from cold, the varied cycles are a great feature.
The washer is quiet and compact.

Questions & Answers
WD14060D6 - does this machine do a ‘spin only’? I can only get it do a 30 minute rinse and spin.
I can on mine. I turn it on and then just turn the spin knob to however long I want it to spin (400 through to 1400), I generally do an 800 spin after I hand wash. Then you just hit start. The icon that lights up on mine is the tee shirt with the swirl - the last one on the wash cycle)
can anyone tell me if (and where or when) I can put bleach into the machine? I have had this machine for a couple of years and have never needed to use bleach before.
Apart from not knowing where and when to put bleach in I think this is an amazing machine. I would defs buy another one just like it.
I`ve had this machine for nearly 4years and never use bleach it will reck your machine over time. You might be better off soaking what you need bleached in a bucket etc then add to the machine afterwards. Bleach, washing powder and fabric softners will over time destroy your machine. If you still want to use bleach in your machine good luck add it too the washing powder dispenser when the water is going in or after it has filled never put bleach in first before the water. When I have to clean the tub I use a cup of white vinegar ( not homebrand it`s immatation ) "Cornwalls" white vinegar is 100% vinegar.
