The machine has more high tech functions that will provide almost any wash combinations possible, Great value at the price and the warranty service is very good. But to start the machine the high tech self start packed in the first day and after repairs continues to malfunction. It is a technical issue that can't be solved as the item is way to over complicated. So when you get the error report tap the right side of the machine near the top and it works.
Machine leak Water
I bought the LG 8.5 kg Top Loader washing machine, I had problems with the machine leaking water after the washing cycle is finished the machine keeps leaking water inside the drum, the inlet valve needs replacing it only lasted 2.5 years.
I'm really disappointed with LG Washing machines and don't recommend it for anyone.
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!
Terrible Machine washing programs are way too long. Possible design fault and FIRE HAZARD and no sa
Summary of the above washing machine purchased February 2018:-
LG's Selling points:-
1) Big size, 9.5kg
2) Programs are way too long.
3) Supposed to allows us to wash quilt, blankets and pillows with ease
4) See through glass on the top to see what’s happening
3) Option to stop the machine to add items that you forgot to added in during washing
4) Supposed to have advanced computerised operating options. To customise how you want the washing completed, including the number of rinse cycle, level of water, minutes of washing...etc which I thought was a great idea at the time of purchase ...
Not overly impressed with this machine. The wash cycle takes forever. I have had multiple issues with the machine clogging up because of dog hair/fluff in the filter which took me forever to work out why the machine would simply turn itself off mid wash and full of water. Technicians were no help. I worked it out myself. Now I know I have to regularly pull plug out the back to remove any buildup which then fills the laundry with the water that is in the machine after the drain cycle. Not happy with the quality of the clothes that come out at the end of the cycle. I only have rain water which is put through filters so my water quality is excellent. I would much rather use an old twin tub than this shiny new expensive waste of money.

Disappointing bit of junk
Negatives are just too numerous. VERY LONG wash cycles, no manual programming for shorter cycles. Power outage means one hell of a headache to resume/finish that cycle, twists and tangles everything throwing it out of balance and no safety out of balance stop. No soft close lid anymore just slams shut, very noisy and rattly.
Controls at front never have been a good idea on any appliance.
Never had an LG anything before this and an LG fridge bought at same time.(also crap) and will not ever have anything LG again.
I bought a LG top loader as my daughter had one for over ten years and it was brilliant. This machine regularly doesn’t allow hot water in. Repair man said it was because our hot water was too hot or pressure too great!! Suggested we purchase a hot water regulator
This perfect for my big family
I put day to day clothes all fabric types, kids, hi vis work clothes
Easy to use, settings and functions, i use a variety of the options and cycles
Gentle on delicates
If i need to do a quick or longer cycle i have the option
I am pleased with the overall performance of the product
Absolutely love this machine
We wanted this machine for quite a while before finally buying it. Its great - it cleans so very thoroughly and spins out very dry for a top loader. I love the clear lid - I can see whats going on and adjust as necessary. It almost never goes off balance like my old one and looks good as well
Bought my washing machine based on the fact it has no agatater which allows for easy loading of clothes & less creasing on completion of wash . I have done a queen size Dooner in it with very good results . so happy I made this wise purchase ,& would recommend it to all my friends
10 years and still going strong
I purchased an LG washing machine 10kg over 10 years ago and I have had no problems with it since. LG may generally be slightly more expensive than other brands, but in my opinion a wise choice, I used to be a fischer and paykel on all brands but having an LG clothes washer for so long with so many different settings although I only use one setting and just let it run. It runs for just under an hour and I find that it cleans my clothes, towels, blankets etc, sanitises and conditions them and spin dries them very well and when they are hung ou...t to dry, dry in a very short span of time. For convenience the large 10kb capacity allows me to simply load my machine with general everyday items of a weekly wash for 2 persons and the wash is done in just under an hour. I have never washed my good clothes and delicates preferring to hand wash although there are several settings on my machine for this together with soaking. I just never trust machines to perform those tasks preferring to always hand wash since my very first washing machine, I think it was a singer wringer tub back in the 60's. So Kudo's to LG for an amazing reliable washing machine.
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.
2 years to the day
we have had this machine for 2 years - not really happy with water use - HATE the fact it ties clothes up into knots - then the PUMP STOPS WORKING.....a few days of trying to problem solve, a few more trying to work through the LG support service....3 times now i have had to "Bail out" the drum of water i cant get out any other way - Buying a F&P - never again - feel bad for the environment that 2 years it is crap, but cant go any longer going to laundromat to get washing done!!!
Great top loader
We purchased this as I didn’t want a front loader and so far so good.
I find there is a lot of washing options which is great and it takes loads of clothes. The only thing I would say is that it is a touch louder than a front loader but only marginally.
So far very happy
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...
This is not a washing machine, it is a dirt machine
This machine is the worst ever. It leaves cloths more dirty than you put them in. Covered in lint, fluff and scrud. For which LG suggests your run a clean tub program of 3 hours every 10 washes or so. If only it worked/helped. It does not. And that is after LG replaced the motherboard as the machine before destroyed cloths by twisting them together and tearing them apart. The Worst Ever.
Not a fan of LG but this washer is good
We're not a fan of LG products but we bought this cloths washer because it was on sale and had a nice display panel. Loads of cloth options and also huge amount of room for super large baggy cloths or bed sheets and blankets or if like us you have a large family it takes a huge load.
I was a bit sceptical when I was about to purchase this as I just had a LG issue with a purchase - a different company prior to that. Now, I am loving it as I was previously using the old model of the same product which just got broken - have lasted for a long time though.
An ok washing machine - if you like lint
This attractive looking machine stands proudly in the store with a great big stick on its front stating its fantastic for lint removal. Um, yeah not its not. Nicce to look at, reasonably quiet and has most cycles and features you'd expect from a washing machine designed for a big family. On the downside not only is it crap at removing lint with its monstrous size lint filters, but im starting to think it might actually have a secret lint making compartment. You'll never wear black again.
Works very well, it is very gentle on clothes, I like the easy cleanable lint catchers, I also like the fact that while the machine is filling you can add detergent etc. the only issue is the programming which I think is bit complicated. The machine runs very quietly that is good.
Questions & Answers
Hi we have the LG WTG8532WH machine, the amount of lint on our washing is ridiculous, this is the worst washing machine we have bought, we have cleaned the inlet filters and the lower drain plug filter, which is being done weekly, we do the tub clean monthly but nothing is working, we are still getting lint on our washing, the washing machine has on it filter free symbol, how do clean this washing machine out and stop the lint covering our washing, not a happy LG customer, maybe consumer affairs can help us as the washing machine isn’t performing correctly, NOT HAPPY LG IN YOUR PRODUCT
Looks like alot of people with this 8.5kg model are reporting a lint problem. I guess it is not scrud (which is caused by soap powder build up with cold washes). Scrud can get on clothes. I always warm wash to prevent scrud. If it is lint then I guess if the machine is not working in this dept. Only way is to wash lint type items together e.g. towels and other items separately. I have had a terrible run with several LG WTG7532W (7.5kg). No lint problem but repeat DE faults on lid caused by either the magnets or hinges. No help at all from LG. call centre.. They do not care about their customers or faulty products at all.
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 issue with this model become Error P E
