Washing Machines Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of washing machine would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
BEST MACHINE EVER!!!
I bought this washing machine in November 2017 after my fisher and paykel died. It is a great machine, super quiet and is packed with loads of features. And don't forget the MASSIVE 11kg capacity. I am a family of four who go through a lot of clothes so this is perfect. The display is really clear, unlike my old F&P which had no display. All in all, a great machine.
Perfect for our Family
This machine is great.. the 11kg size is great for our family, it washes everything to a very high standard. Beats all the front loader machines we have owned prior
Very Happy So far !
Very happy with this machine to date. The 11kg tub is a very generous size to tackle washing for a big family including sheets and blankets. The programs and features are very versatile and can be adapted to every need including a 3 minute wash to quickly freshen up items to longer intense cycles. I may have been living under a rock with my previous painful machine but I am liking the Soak option that allows you to select how long (up to several hours) before the cycle starts (handy when load not quite full) but in the meantime you can keep ad...ding items as you go while soiled clothes get a soak . If you prefer, I believe the machine can be controlled through the LG phone app. The "Ultra Spin" option has sheets coming out nearly dry and therefore only requiring a quick dry in dryer or on line. I've always had issues with previous machines hitting an error message mid cycle and consistently beeping because of "Off Balance" issues, however it has been refreshing to have a machine that does what it is supposed to do. Early days, but so far very happy with machine that surely will be put to the test in this household ! Will update ….. (Just note dimensions as the LG range tends to be deeper than other brands)
It is great at saving water
I really like this washing machine because it weighs how much clothes you have so that it draws the right amount of water that you need to wash it. When you put it in the hot wash, your clothes come out almost dry! I love the music it plays at the end of the cycle. I only need to use it once a week for colours and a separate wash for whites.
It is massive. Clothes are very clean, smell great but they have a lot of lint on them compared to my old machine.
It's not whisper quiet but it's not like the old washing machines that sound like jet engines. I love the size of it.
I like that it alerts me via the app on my phone that it's done.
I wish it had a refresh cycle. That would be perfect.
NOT HAPPY AT ALL
Purchased this machine in March 2018. Cleans well and size of tub is great. It is very loud with its bipping tones whenever you touch a button and at the end of each wash it does a little musical number for about 20 seconds and it can't be turned off. In the instructions it says that you have to do a tub clean once a month and of course it gives a continual loud bipping sound until you run it. I started to run it and it runs for 'eleven hours' using hot and cold water. I
let it run for 4 hours and then contacted LG online to question the len...
My wife was extremely cautious due to all the complaints about the electrcial issues that seem to predominate washing machines. To satisfy her, we purchased a 5 year warranty extension (I know, I know.....) for $175 and if ANYTHING goes wrong with the machine in this time they REPLACE it.. not fix it.... This was all my wife needed to keep her happy and give it a go. It has worked perfectly from day 1, no issues. Will let you know if we do encounter issues.
This is a great machine
The washing machine has loads of features that make easy to select a cycle that will best suit the loads you need
The size is great for a family of 5
It makes it easy to wash multiple sheets , doonas, pillows, pet bedding etc
Clothes are always clean and there is no build up of detergent
Questions & Answers
When I bought the machine from The good guys, I specifically asked if the machine does a quick wash. I was told it did but the clothes come out very wet and then I have to spin it for another 25 minutes. I find this very annoying because sometimes it is just a couple of school uniforms. My previous machine would wash and spin brilliantly. Very disappointed and not what I asked for.
Yes, that is true the quick wash does not spin well. I find you need to change the spin time to get it to come out semi dry. I'm not a fan of the quick wash i don't find it washes great but you can't expect a good clean for 15 to 20 min. Otherwise I love the machine.
We are having problems with black grease like stains on sheets and pilow cases, is anyone else experiencing similar with the LG 11kg top load Inverter Machine
