My washing machine and I
We bought our LG washing machine in January 2021. Besides it being the most beautiful washing machine I've ever had, it works like a charm. Whether I want a long wash, short or long spin, delicate soak or need to wash a load of very dirty clothes.
I normally wash my clothing in bundles of white, lightly coloured and dark. I also wash bedding and towels. Towels normally get a longer and hotter setting, while the bedding can be done within 39 minutes.
The other great thing about it, is it tells me when it needs a tub clean. So whenever the message comes up, I buy some tub cleaner and give it a quick wash.
I would buy it again if I had the opportunity.

LG (Life Good) - Life is easy, like a Sunday morning.
This is our second LG front loader. The old one (10kg of a beast) didn't miss a beat. For nearly 15 years she ran like dream plus you can fit the entire family in there, the kitchen sink including the family the cat. Sorry, I jest. When we moved a year ago, I thought it was to update. We instantly fell in love with her (LG Dual Tub). The dual tubs are an awesome idea and we have used them on many occasions. There aren't many options on the small tub, and you can use them together or independently. AWESOME. My only gripe, I wish had spent a litt...le money, as I would bought a front loader with all the bells and whistles plus a built-in dryer. The new model is easier to use., it has Bluetooth...LOL AND, this is a big AND. The detergent tray comes out so easily making it truly easy to clean out the excess/built-up detergent.

Loving It. So Far.
Finally bit the bullet and bought our first front loader after many, many years of top loaders. Went with LG for no other reason than it comes in black (charcoal) and matches our fridge and dishwasher. I know, crazy reason.
Was very nervous about 2 things: noise and not being able to add stuff after the cycle began.
Turns out, this machine is whisper quiet, even during the spin cycle and it's in an internal laundry, right next to the kitchen and TV room. Can't hear it.
And, I can press a button to suspend the cycle to add the errant sock.

Noisy washer do not buy
Bought this front load washing machine from Harvey norman capalaba in August 2020.Machine makes terrible high pitched screeching noise when filling up with water and this happens atleast 10 times throughout the washing .When contacted lg about it they sent a few techs and changed the dispenser box inlet valve etc.This made no difference to the washer.I made already changes to my home plumbing as they would not help to resolve this issue. This machine is advertised as a quiet machine it is false advertising and a product with design error .Please spend your money on another brand

A new look on washing. This is our first ever front loader. Simply put, the LG WV9 is simple to use. There are the required programs for washing, also the added feature of a 39 min wash. I have found, you are able to use this feature @ 39 min if using cold wash. Once you start to adjust heat level, add non wrinkling etc, time increases. Still, the length of wash time isn’t as long as my old top loader. Takes a little getting used to amount of wash load added, to date, I haven’t had an issue with overloading. Has feature of ‘ add an item’ and no...fear of water gushing out, as you actually open the door to add an item. Thee LG WV9 is quiet and efficient. Simply put, Love the LG. Have had no issue with clothes being marked, no lint left on clothes during wash cycle, easy peasy. Do find though with front loaders, that upon removing clothing items best to have washing basket directly below to catch any items whilst removing wash load. Has an enjoyable melody at end of cycle. An extra note, have reviewed separately the LG 2kg Twin Wash mini washer. We were looking into purchasing a stand for the top loader and were informed by store staff, if purchasing a stand, your top loader warranty will be void for not having original base by LG. Therefore, we opted for the mini washer which also gives us an extra 2kg wash and also the additional height wanted so don’t need to bend continuously. This was security for us and cost wise, was a little more than expected but worth it.

10 week promotion wait!
We just received out new LG washing machine and dryer which i was excited about using. I was enticed to go with LG due to the promotion offering a free stacking kit which i needed to set up my systems.
I went through the process of submitting the paperwork to claim the stacking kit and have been informed it can take up to 10 weeks to be delivered! WHAT am i suppose to do? I can use my machines properly because i don't have the stacking kit to make them stable.
It's been annoying and frustrating that i cannot use my products in the way i want to due to a slow and frustrating promotion.
I would rate my washing machine but i haven't used it yet due to this issue.

Great Machine 30 washes in.
Was sceptical about getting a front loader but I’m glad i did. This thing looks great, runs great and is Ultra quiet. Uses bugger all water compared to a top loader but seems to clean everything really well. Most of the time i run loads on the mixed fabric option (appx 1hr) using cold water and it cleans my filthy roadworker shirts up a treat. Only changes id wish for would be the option to turn off auto sleep mode when on standby and a remote start feature on the app with saveable customisable settings. Very happy with purchase.

This is a perfect washing machine . Purchased this as a replacement of Bosch and I am extremely happy with it . The clothes come out perfectly clean and fresh .
There are downloadable programs that you could use if you wish using the app .
The only thing that they could improve is if we were able to design our own wash criteria’s that would have been great . But it’s not a major concern

Questions & Answers
I have recently purchased the LG WV9 12KG front loader and so far have been very pleased with it. Clothes come out clean every time. Is there a chart available that gives the approximate times for each cycle? I know the Turbo wash 39 is 39 minutes and the Quick 14 is 14 minutes but it would be handy to have all the cycle times there for reference.
Hello Louise, unfortunately there is no chart. What I do is add my washing load then add additional programs. Etc. Turbo Wash 39 + adjustment on temp + wrinkle free = approx 1hr 40min (this is just on top of my head. Give and take minutes) it really is trial & error and to ones satisfaction. Honestly though, prior wash I random check cycles just to see. An idea though, in the initial packaging, a guide was present that also has a suction cup. I’ve attached to the side of my machine and use a sticky note to add any personal notes too.
To date, this is a great machine and am happy we too invested in this model
Thanks Maria. I will take on your suggestion. :-)
I recently purchased a new LG WV9 front load washer. It vibrates badly beyond acceptable, the whole floor shakes. Checks, remedies completed: Shipping bolts are removed, levels are correct, sitting firmly on floor, redistributed load and purchased anti vibration mats. I have an LG service rep coming to check, but what I want to know is what is acceptable vibration. I am concerned with the level of vibration we are experiencing there could be future damage to washer or worse structural damage to my floor?
Hi Darren, I’m sorry I cannot assist on this situation. To date, I have no such issue, not sure if it’s because I have the 2kg LG base with it. Sincerely hope service rep can assist. Machine should not vibrate this much.
Does the machine heat the water or do you have to connect up a hot tap to wash in warm?
Hello Tina. Upon installation, both hot & cold were connected. I think there is a heater pump, but I always use the hot water in cycles. When using the steam cycle, it does use hot water. I suppose the option is to the user if you prefer to use hot or cold water, just remember, you have the choice of water temperature settings.
Hope I helped.
