Does this model have a lint filter can’t find one anywhere in the bowl the machine works great but can’t understand how to clean the lint filter and why does my softener and detergent dispenser fill up with water after a wash
Purchased in August 2020.
Good and bad
The good news is the drum is the same size as the 14kg model meaning you can fit a heap in a single load. Bad news is the water levels (and in particular the fuzzy logic water level sensing) are ridiculous. I manually set the water level every wash as the fuzzy logic hopelessly underestimates the required water. But even when manually selecting the levels they make no sense. Level 7 of 10 is closer to 85% of the height of the bowl and at the other end anything under level 4 is unusable...heres a photo of the amount of water on level 3 which doesn't even cover the agitator...level 1 is barely enough for a teabag!

It Is Too Complicated.
Please Note, This was not my first choice of machine, it was an emergency purchase immediately before Easter and during the Covid-19 Crisis.
I like the large capacity bowl and when I am able to get it to work it does a good job of my laundry. The tempered glass lid is an interesting feature. This machine seems to be well built and the noise level is very acceptable.
The owners manual is is almost useless, too much generic information and commonsense safety advice.
Having read the owners manual more than once it appears that there is NO fully...automatic wash cycle. Selecting any wash cycle is tricky. "Quick Wash" appears to be limited to low water levels only. Warm wash is selected by pressing hot and cold simultaneously!. If you don't get the setting correct all the lights go out and you need to start all over again. Not good. (And very annoying) So far I have only done 5 washes but on two occasions the washer has simply stopped somewhere along the cycle leaving a the bowl full of water and clothes. Hitting the spin cycle will drain the water and spin the clothes. I am not sure if this is a fault or an operator error. I am just pleased that I have paid for an extended warranty. I feel that any washing machine should be very simple to use in that any one who comes into my house can use it. This is not the case with this machine, perhaps a vastly improved owner manual would help.

Questions & Answers
I have just purchased this unit and after unpacking it and putting it in place I read through the manual to ensure I had done everything correctly when I came across a line on page 22 that suggests that "Regardless of size, we (LG) recommend washing bedclothes individually" Surely this can't be true. We have 6 beds in our house and to individually wash 18 sheets and duvet covers individually. would take days to cycle through and use an extraordinary amount of power and water.
Please advise if I can wash more than 1 sheet at a time and on what cycle. Thanks
Just so everyone knows I have heard from LG about this unit and they did not recommend using this 11KG machine to do more than 1 single bed sheet at a time. They suggested that two would fit but they wouldn't guarantee the wash quality
I think it should be fine to wash multiple sheets and covers but it might tangle them and could result in an unbalanced load.
Why does my washing machine sound like I'm standing next to Niagra falls? When it fills, it is so loud I have to close the laundry door. The water hits the plastic detergent tray causing this irritatingly loud noise , is there a way to stop this?
