LASTED 3 YEARS!
Purchased in Feb 2018. Vibrated like crazy however washed ok. The door catch broke yesterday (metal catch) When we asked the service agent how long for a replacement part they said they could order one but did not know how long it would take. We cannot be without a washing machine for weeks so had to purchase another one!! For a washing machine that cost $810.00 I am pretty sure it would not meet the statutory requirements for warranty! Use was for a household of two adults with average use!

Fantastic Quality & excellent value for money.
Purchased from The Good Guys March 2018.
Still leaning how to use some of the settings but washes really well.
Also not noisy & spins really fast.
I have always liked LG -

So far so good
Bought a little while ago at the good guys so far so good much quieter than my old one cleans really well. The 15 minute quick cycle is amazing for when I use it for the kids school uniforms.

Love this washer! Easy to do a quick was, theres a WiFi app that tells you when the washing is done. Its so quiet you can have the door open and there will be no disruption. So easy to clean! You will not be dissapointed!

It is excellent
The Washing machine is really great. It is very quiet and has many options to work with. It has never had any issues and the setting are very easy to work with.

Soggy washing on fastest spin cycle
The machine leave my clothes sodden on the 1400 rpm spin cycle. There is no spin cycle alone to do a follow up cycle, so my other option is to download an app (why? Why can you not just a) have a spin cycle that works, and b) offer a spin cycle alone ) which requires having my washing machine and my modem (not my phone!) face to face. This can only happen if I drag my washing machine through
The house then turn in!!!. Im giving LG an opportunity to resolve this for me, if not Ill be taking this one to NCAT for a full refund.

Love my new washer. Have always wanted a front loader and will never go back to a top loader. It has so many different cycles, which works well for our family.

Dangerous factory fault
We had this machine for 14 months. After a few months we noticed it tripped the power, then was ok again. It kept happening irregularly, sometimes 2x month, then after we pushed the safety switch back up in the power box outside, it would usually run again. Thought of maybe a lose wire. Then before Easter didn't work at all anymore, power kept getting tripped. Called LG as it was under warranty, and the Electrician came out 2 weeks later, opened it up and said water dripped on the inside from the hose that went into the motor, factory fault, an...d dangerous, motor was rusted, too. Everything was rusted. LG took 6 weeks, 13 calls and involvement of Fair Trading to finally give us a store credit as model was discontinued and we refused a repair as everything was rusted inside. Terrible customer service. We're a family with two kids and pets, unacceptable. Bought a new Bosch washing machine now and had the damaged LG being picked up today.

I have had this machine for 6 months and I have never had a problem with it. It’s good quality the washes are very quiet no big vibrations at all.
The machine itself is not cheap in quality and it washes very well. No damage to any garments or clothes.

Menu screen you cannot read because it is black with no options lit up.
You cannot read the menu because it is not backlit and is black. The bowl is black so you cannot see the stage of the wash. Useless machine if you cannot access new settings - the options the machine provides is limited and does not allow simple things like rinse only since you cannot read the menu. You are supposed to be able to stop the cycle but the menu is so complex you have no idea where in the cycle you are. Hopeless! Technology that is unusable
Can a washing machine be sexy?
We just bought our first home and so naturally a few things have broken in the lead up to our big move which included our trust washing machine! I did a lot of online market research and finally decided to settle with the LG WD1408NCW 8kg Front Load Washing Machine..... and I think I’m in love!
I highly recommend this washing machine to who ever reads my review, I barely hear the machine do it’s magic and honestly my clothes come out smelling better and feel cleaner after a single wash. The only small fault this machine has is that there is ...
Broke after 4 months
It was working ok up to the 5 month mark. Nothing remarkable but functional. During a cycle a metal ring holding the seal in place came off twisted and ruined my clothes and the seal. It has taken 1 month so far for LG to not do anything except lie to us. It has been a nightmare, would not recommend this machine or LG.
It's rubbish and dangerous
Not even 3 months old already had the service tech out (took a week to turn up) as was tripping the power out and has just started doing it again 2 weeks after it was fixed the 1st time,
More inconvenience than it's worth and is dangerous as it's tripping the breaker box,
LG customer service is pretty poor also
It is okay
It does clean well and offers a variety of cycles. Only criticism I have is the large amount of water remains on the rubber door seal that wets clothes as you take the clothes out. It occurs all the time and has been a little annoying since I have to grab a dry towel or paper towel and wipe the rubber door seal before taking any washed clothes out.
