Great washing machine for small household
Have been using for 3.5 years now. Had bought second hand just 8 months old. Still works great. Perfect for our small family. Would not be able to comment on how it would be for a big family or very frequent use. I use it 2 to 3 times a week.
This washing machine has given us nothing but problems. You can’t put a single load on, no mater how big or small without it unbalancing. We have it set on a level floor and have tried many times to adjust and still no better! It has been the single worst thing I have purchased in my entire life!
Possibly The Best Machine I've Owned
I do an average of 2 loads of washing every day and this 6.5kg machine cleans everything much better and removes lots more lint than any machine I've previously owned. I've set up a favourite wash for my most commonly used cycle but do also use the quick wash cycle quite often on loads that don't need the full cycle. I've owned the machine for 2 years now and have had zero problems although I did choose to replace the 2 lint filters recently (bought for very cheap online). The only minor negatives I can think of is that the 'Favourite' cycle is...waaay down the menu list (shouldn't a regularly used 'favourite' be near the top?) and the folding lid is a waste of time as I nearly always have to fully open it to get to the powder dispenser. Overall, this is a great machine for a medium to large size family. *EDIT April 2018 - The machine is still going great! The only thing I do is put in new lint filters every six months because the old ones are usually quite buggered by that time (a pair of lint filters are only about $15 on Ebay).
Failed after two years
This machined was bought to replace a Fisher and Paykel top loader. It has had problems with water leaks from an internal water valve. Now it has got a failed control board with $300+ repair bill. It's only 2 months out of warranty. Very poor from LG, the washer was very slow and not very efficient on either water or power. I wouldn't recommend LG at all, this is the 3rd LG product that I've had fail, they included a TV and split aircon.
Small size, fits nicely in small laundry
Slow wash cycles, loud when operating, not efficient with water or power usage when com paired to other washers
LG WFT-652 6.5kg top load washing machine
For someone who has finally started doing his own washing, this machine comes with my favourite washing option which is called fuzzy logic. It takes the guess work out of water level and time. There is also 30 min quick wash, 2 removal lint filters, and a clear see through glass to watch your clothes wash for people that have time on their hands.
The machine also has a delay start, and a silent mode should you wish to clean at midnight.
Ease of use, gentle on clothes, bi-folding lid, and able to save my favourite program.
Not the biggest problem but the lint filters need to be removed and cleaned out after each wash.
We received this washing machine for our wedding present 13 years ago, and it's still going Strong, it's been fantastic from day 1. Easy to use, the lid is light, easy to keep clean, I have a LG fridge which is great too.
Having been told that LG is not great I have found my items to be great.
Thank you LG
Hasn't Missed A Beat
I have no complaints with this machine. It hasn't missed a beat since since we purchased it, Plenty of wash options, cleans everything to my expectations, spins beautifully, carries the load. I'm pretty hectic with my wash loads, takes everything I throw at it even large cotton throw rugs. It suits our needs perfectly. Love it!
Size and options, stainless steel drum, enery efficient.
