Not a review problem fix
Lint problem solved. Ok so I have been working as a washing machine Tech for a while now. The problem with lint build up on clothes and washing machine being hard on clothes is caused by clothes rubbing together in the machine. Causes are :-
Too little water in the machine. Either increase water level or reduce amount of clothes.
Using hot water or warm will improve wash quality. Or dissolving detergent in hot water before putting in machine.
Don't expect clean washing
The cycles run OK, BUT it is absolutely hopeless for linens, particularly whites, it leaves blotches of dirty lint, lint in the creases and causes a lot, lot more work.
Terrible terrible LG customer service, machine damages clothes.
Machine 1 year old and it damages clothes- stretches it and leaves lint on half load.
What is even more of a headache is the LG customer service (offshore) - the most terrible customer service i've ever received- inconsistent, lacks care, poor communication. Called over 12+ times, constantly following up before I am able to get a technician.
For a 7.5kg machine, i put 3 kgs (less than half a load) in and maximum water, they advised I am overloading machine and i need to use more water- what a joke for a 4 star water efficiency!
Their definition of "troubleshoot" is put clothing in bags and don't overload.
I have lost trust in the brand and quality of customer service. Never again LG. Life is not good!
Purchased in February 2018.
Random wash cycles and lint everywhere!
Have been unsatisfied with this product and the way it washes. Swishes from side to side, barely cleaning any of our clothes. Detergent left on clothing (even when we have triple checked amounts used). Lint on every wash regardless of tub clean or filter clean. Have tried everything to fix from our end and no luck. Customer service gives same advice but it's obviously just the machine. Family members with same machine have experienced this also. Waiting for it to die and then never buying an LG again!
Ugh I love it!
After pulling out my hair with our Simpson for years I finally decided to try this machine and haven't looked back since. It is super easy to use and oh so quiet.
I think our clothes are finally getting a decent wash too. LG have a customer for life if it keeps going the way it is.
WTG7532W steep learning curve but a quiet great machine
We got the Direct Drive 7.5 top loader, it is very high tech so took us a few test loads to work how to get the optimal water level, but once we know the setting we're after it is much better than our previous top loader/front loader washing machines.
1 This clean and rinse well. you have to choose wash at least 10 minutes if you have a big load.
2 we only got it around 2 month so can't tell if it wears out cloth
3 we live in a unit with laundry in the bathroom, and this machine is quiet enough (even in spin cycle) for us to sleep in the...
Decent wash but with a downside
This washer does do a good job and clothes are cleaned well, but the big disadvantage for us living on tank water is that it weighs the load before it decides how much water to use. This means that any wet clothes that you might have had soaking, or very damp towels, make it use more water. It also means that you can't tip in buckets of water collected as the shower heats up. You can adjust it to a manual wash but I have to get the manual out every time to do this. Plus it makes you do a tub clean occasionally which uses water. I just wish it didn't decide water usage on its own.
LG WASHING MACHINE
This top loading machine is performing well and very quiet. It has many water levels and washing cycles to choose. The normal cycle is very long so I ussualy chose the quick wash. One problem with the machine is that the machine is very deep you have to make sure that you are comfortable to reach the cloths at the end before you buy the machine.

LG washing Machine
This washing machine is alright, quiet, and perfect for small family. It has a control panel which allows you to select your mode easily. Even for the water level, so you can save some water when required and when you are washing less clothes. Price is reasonable around 700 AUD.
I love this machine. Especially that there is no agitator clothes don’t get tangled around the agitator because there is none! But it cleans everything really well love the turbo air drying it’s great in winter. Also love that there are no messy filters to clean and it lets me know when I am due to do a tub clean which takes a while so my advice is to let it do it over night or on a day your not going to be washing.
This is perfect!
This machine is not loud, and it does a good job cleaning my clothes. Drying is average. It is quiet and I forget that it is on. Which is not a problem because it turns off automatically after washes. The only down side is that it takes awhile to weigh the clothes
Ok. But not as good as the salesman made it out to be
This washing machine looks good and is very quit. Doesn’t jump around like my old one. Not having an agitator is fabulous for washing duvets however on some of the linger cycles certainly tangle the clothes eve though we were advised that this didn’t happen. Majority of the cycles are really long and the quick cycle whilst only just over half an hour only allows for a low water level limiting the items.

Too many problems for a new machine
I bought this machine with high hopes and it started out ok. About 8 months into owning the machine I have had it repaired 3-4 times. The machine tub became loose somehow, and is super loud, and bangs around so much that it moves almost a metre away from the wall. The machine has now scratched sides from hitting the laundry tub whilst spinning violently. The repair guy has tried to resolve this problem twice already. It then also got the occasional error codes that it was not draining well, and a part needed replacing. Then after those repairs,...the sensor immediately stopped working properly and would only land the water level at 1. So to wash a load properly I would need to stand by the machine, check its levels, and check in whilst draining and spinning to make sure the machine washed and stayed in place. Not really a justifiable use of time when I have kids and work! Now I'm being told the whole computer board needs replacing. Really!! I think I deserve a new replacement as 8 months with all of these problems, just means its a bad faulty machine!! Not happy LG... Update: computer board was replaced, and the next day the same problems are happening. Machine sensor doesn't work. Very loud spin cycles with tub constantly loosening and machine moving roughly. I called LG explaining problems and asking for a refund, and I was told it would be brought to the attention of the manager and my call would be returned same day. One week later I'm still waiting for that call. I think its time to take consumer affairs action!

A bit complex to use, clothes wash well.
First wash took forever, just for towels 1hr 50min? Second wash I used the quick cycle and went out for a walk only to find when I got back it had stopped for unknown reason. Turned off and back on and it restarted. I have a weeks worth of washing to catch up on from having no machine and each cycle seems way too long plus twice it hasn't seemed to have added enough water and the instructions say you may have to adjust this. What a pain! They are quite deep and as a short person I find it hard to reach the items on the bottom. On the plus sid...e, the clothes come out very soft, seems to use less water and detergent. I am getting used to the settings but the manual is not very good at explaining how to set your own wash so it has been trial and error. I hated in on day 1 but have since decided I do like not having an agitator in the way and we are making friends slowly! You can fit lots in. The water level is a pain, as on occasion it doesn't seem to have filled enough. Takes some getting used to but I think I like it now and really happy with the softness of the clothes. Its very quiet, and I haven't even used the quiet cycle yet. Soft close lid is great.
I love how easy it is and does a great job!
Clothes come out clean, well rinsed out. Never damaged any clothes. Has a gentle cycle and quick wash. Really great washing machine. I have always been happy with this machine. Never had any faults or problems. I like how you have so many choices to wash with as well as the glass top to look on whilst its cleaning.
Great size top loader
Love this new lg no agitator great for clothes no tangle twisting, nice deep drum, a little to deep for me being short lol
great finish, lots of washing choices.
See through lid, soft close lid, Tells you when you need to do a clean basin wash.
Easy to use touchpad.
Bring back the old dial machines
The more they complicate the process, the easier it is to stuff up the works. The machine is simple enough to use, but it doesn't do a great job and for the brand and money paid, I expect it to be better.
I have no idea why the machine has to dance a little jig before each and every wash, what the hell is that about? hy can't the machine just fill with water and start like they used to? The drum goes through this dance motion as if it has to limber up before a big match.
I don't feel that it washes the clothes properly, and clothes regularly...
Perfect washing machine perfect wash
Great machine.quiet, efficient, good clean wash, had it for quite a few months now.no problems. One thing not covered in manual -- the sign CL which means child lock.to open the lid again when lid locks you have to put finger on the rince button and hold it there for 3 seconds. Marvelous to know it locks if kids fiddle with buttons. Luv this machine.

Replaces LG Washer bought 1999!
This new LG Top Loader (2017) replaces a similar LG Top Loader purchased 1999 and which had given excellent service over that time.
The washing cycles are now more complicated and we have hung the Manual next to the machine so that we can learn how to get the best from each cycle.
A FEW GOOD TICKS:
*Tick for the automatic lint filter which does not need emptying, we are getting a cleaner (almost) lint free wash.
*Tick for the Towel cycle, this is becoming our favourite all-purpose cycle as it spins the water through the clothes to satura...
Questions & Answers
Bought the machine in April 2016. Lint! Lint! On everything. Lint filter no don't one. Wash the clothes then go outside with a lint brush before bringing the clothes inside. Where does all the lint come from? Previous loads. As for service in Canberra act. One company only. One other Company want service call fee over the phone when you book. The other is sooooo busy can't service for at least another week. As for the LG Care centre, don't think the staff are in Australia. For future reference don't buy it unless it has a lint filter. LG products are good. Question - why no lint filter in this model?
I have an LG inverter top loader 6.5kg a few years ago. Does this machine have a lint filter. Cant find any evidence . Thank you.
Hi Kristine, yes it does. Should be on the barrel on the inside on the side somewhere. Don’t know how to explain it sorry. But that where mine is. You have to like pop it open.
no lint filter, hence I posted about dirty washing, impossible to get clean sheets, the lint sticks to the sheets and gets in the creasers, the sheets come out dirtier than when you put them in. Of course you can do a drum clean of two, which uses up 3+ hours of electricity, not good for reducing our carbon foot print. I asked about the lint filter at the time or purchase and was told the machine doesn't need it as it washes all the lint away, which is absolutely not true.
How to clean this washing machine?
Is there any lint filter??
