Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It has excellent capacity and is relatively quiet. I know it would be quieter on spin if I had it on a concrete floor.

Bad points:
The cycle times are slow, some are incredibly slow. So the more features you select, e.g. steam, intensive wash, medic rinse all add up. One set of features made my wash take over 3.5 hours! Luckily the drum size means I can get more in each load.

When you select the wash you want it doesn't immediately show the time like my previous machine, an AEG. It calculates it as it starts the wash. Then you see just how long it is. You can't cancel it without turning off the machine, waiting a few minutes for it to cancel it out and then try another wash, hoping it will be quicker.

If you put items in and realise you have forgotten something. If you have shut the door, and even if the cycle hasn't started, it makes you wait several minutes to open the door. Very frustrating when you are in a hurry.

The instructions are little more than a single page leaflet. These are very poor and really need to be improved. I am not sure if LG provides such poor instructions for all its products, but I wouldn't buy another another LG product without checking if they provided a proper book with full instructions.

Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The build quality is much better than the Hoover and Hotpoint washers we have had before. The door has a larger than normal opening. A lot of other washers have large drums but with small doors which make it hard to load big items like duvets, but it's easy to get them in the LG. The LG also seems to get the washing cleaner than our old machine. Overall we are very happy with the LG and would definitely recommend it.
Bad points:
It can be a little noisy if the load isn't balanced properly and will also walk a little bit. I've been told this is the case with most large drum washers on timber floors. (?) The instruction manual is rubbish. It's almost as if they said "It's a washing machine, what do you want instructions for." It is easy to use though, so don't be put off by this.
