Disappointed

Lid keeps cracking around the hinges. Had it replaced once and now they won’t replace it even though it’s still under warranty. It’s not even 2 years old. Very disappointed. The machine doesn’t wash clothes that well. Would not recommend it. Taking the matter to Fair Trading. Show details

I like this product

It is very quiet, easy to operate, I fully trust my delicate clothes and the best thing is that I don't have to worry because it turns off completely when the job is finished.

LG lucky if it goes

What a piece of rubbish.
Too slow, takes nearly an hour to do a 10 min wash.
Doesn't rinse properly.
More than one bulky item and you have to stop it and move the load around to balance the tub.

9 months on - ok performance

I partially agree with the other reviewers. This machine has a faulty water level amongst many other issues. I bought it in haste from Appliances Online when the Fisher& Paykel predictably died after two years. After 9 months of use, I have come to appreciate that it is better than the F&Ps I've had but still not worth the price paid. Wouldn't buy again. Show details

Save yourself, do not buy this machine

I waste so much time dealing with LG who does not want to admit its manufacturing fault. They do not want to give refund. The machine seems to have faulty water level from day one. Dont waste yourself with this machine. Show details

WARNING, Do Not Buy this Machine ever!

Do not buy this machine. It is not worth it. Other unbranded washing machine does better job than this machine. This machine might only worth $30 max.
LG Customer service is so unresponsive.
They claimed they designed the machine to be like this.
This machine can only do 1/4 drum water level or full drum, even they advertised it as having 6 water level.
Misleading advertising.
Do not buy from LG for washing machine. Show details

Laundromat here I come …. again

I bought my WTG6520 in January 2019 from Harvey Norman, all good until March 2022 when I got a PE error (water level sensor) so had the LG authorised repairer come out to fix as my local guy can’t access LG info. Now July 2023 and same fault AGAIN. Not happy … don’t be tempted to buy unless you have money to throw away. I’ve made a fair trading report. Show details

do clothes get tangled?

If I do a load of clothes with long sleeves or legs, they tend to get completely tangled. That's the least of my concerns with this machine though. I'm sorry, but I've got nothing good to say about it.
