If u have lots of time to waste, buy from LG
I bought a washing machine from LG through good guys tamworth on 19/12/2018. This machine is just one year old and is still covered by full warranty. Last Saturday 11/01/2020 the motor failed. I rang LG to organise a technician to come and give a resolution. The technician came to my place on Monday and said it will be a major repair and there’s no good to fix it either. And I’ve been trying to contact LG till today. From Monday to Friday it’s been 5 working days their answers are “our case manager will contact u in 48 hours”. No matter what I ...tried, online chat or phone, I rang 9 times today, they put me on hold for 10 minutes and the line automatically cut off. I’m not getting anywhere and I’m desperate cos I have 3 young children and each day I have a lot of washing to be done. I need someone to help me. LG is doing doggy business here. I need a new washing machine ASAP but they muck me around and I really have no one to turn to except fair training. The machine itself is an absolute joke, the motor failed in a year, for a machine $1300?! But not just that, their so-called customer care? It’s an even bigger joke. I will never ever buy anything that’s from LG. This is the last time and I regretted it very very much. I should have gone Borsch. I mean instead of organise a replacement promptly I would be still happy to give them another chance but their customer service is absolutely pathetic and no one should go through this like I did but it seems to be their practice these days that u must go to fair trading to get a resolution.
Front loader LG
Im very satisfied with product I put all clothes even delicates it wonderful. I would recommend this to anyone they come out clean and easy for ironing.the cycles u can choose which u require a short cycle or a longer one .
The product is great. The noise level is very low as compared to other products.
I was all kind of clothes in it and it gives fabulous result every time. Very satisfied with the product. It leaves no lint, unlike other products of other brands.
Poor support from LG Australia
When purchased i was happy with the product until a few weeks ago when I found rust below the soap draw. I wrote in to LG about it, and they said that it was my fault for not maintaining the machine or using harsh cleaning chemicals on the outside. Still waiting for LG to come back to me.
Love the short cycle, but clothes have to be pre-soaked
I love front loader, LG is great machine, however the newest models have too many operation which people don't use and the fast cycle still works best. I tried on 100"C but the stains still did not get out, and the clothes were too wrinkled. Pre-soaking does the trick. Just soak your clothes overnight in any washing powder and just wash in the morning on 30 min quick without putting more detergent. Some stain still need to be treated before, no washing machine would get them out, does not matter what is the brand.
It did apretty good job
Had it for seven years .. was an amazing help and i used it alot due to having 4 kids .. i recommend it highly the clothes came out clean and in a great condition no problems
Good but Takes a long time!
Family of 4 just recently bought an lg front loader. Yes it washes better than my old top loader but putting a load on this morning of towels and it’s over 5 hours ! Trying to get all my washing done over the weekend would be practically impossible if that’s how long a washing machine takes these days! Give me back my top loader any day

Love it! Great for families!
I can wash everything in this machine thoroughly and efficiently especially dirty tradie clothing. It’s features are state of the art and it has many different settings. Large capacity which is so convenient. Delicates come out beautifully and the cycle times range from short to long so all round a great machine!

Very happy with LG washing machine. Well built and good quality. Previously was using a Bosch which was good but more expensive than LG. So far no issue with the LG one at all
Purchased in July 2014.

Good machine - little expensive
The machine with all the bells and whistles of modern technology. Was mulling between this one and another Miele model but glad I went for it. Overall, good machine and is very water efficient it seems. Sometimes it seems that the drum is smaller than the size provided maybe it's just me but I just don't find it big enough to fit some blankets that I could easily do with my older one in same weight range.
Purchased in January 2020.
Great machine with great results!
I bought the LG WD1411SBW 11kg Front Load Washing Machine with TrueSteam from Appliances Online over a month ago to replace an old 7L Westinghouse top loader and I'm so pleased that I did! This machine is the current top rated washing machine by Choice and I can concur that the dirt removal is exceptional, rinse performance and water efficiency are all very good. The steam function is brilliant it means that when I pull clothes out they are virtually dry and require much less time on the line to dry. The capacity is massive and means that I can...now fit twice as many clothes in one load. There is an option for cycles from 15mins to 3.5hours (1 hr option works very well) so no need to worry about options for short cycles. The amount of customisation for each wash cycle is excellent. The only negative I've found with this machine is that our WiFi signal can't be detected in the location of the washing machine so the Smart function isn't open to us, but so far the machine is working perfectly (noise is minimal) so no need to troubleshoot with the app yet!
Not what I was hoping for! Sounds great but overall disappointed
The wash cycles are very long. I bought the 11kg washer as I needed a washer that was big enough to wash sheets, blankets. Ongoing problems with pipes since installation.
Only got 1 star because it had to, zero stars
The wash cycle starts with an annoying on and off function that makes my water pipes clang. Very small for an 11kg, smaller than my previous 10kg and doesn’t wash the clothes properly. Cycles are extremely long (3hours) if you fill machine. Very noisy and rattles a lot in the spin cycle. DO not buy this machine very poor quality
Purchased in January 2020 for $1,200.00.

It’s a good machine.
I’m very happy with this machine. My clothes, and particularly my white sheets, have never looked cleaner.
You can fit a good sized load in the machine.
I bought the LG Heatpump Condenser dryer in the middle of last year and was very disappointed to find that not only have they changed the door design but it opens the opposite way.
I’m in a wheelchair and it’s posed all sorts of problems with accessing the machine to transfer the load of washing to the dryer.
The other thing I’m not convinced about is the True Steam function.

We bought this big 11kg washer for our family and have been really happy with the performance. Great on a range of different cycles with our normal wash being “mix” and using “wool” settings for the delicate stuff and bedding/pillows (this washer can fit it all!). The mix setting determines the cycle length by weight of load so is quicker if there’s less clothing in the load.
The steam feature is fantastic, clothes are hot when they come out even after a cold wash so they dry super quick and always smell fresh and clean. Love the fact I ca...
Perfect and quiet
Love this machine.
Had a 14plus years of front loader that was working still but needed a larger washing machine. Made a big difference in siZe 11kg from my old 7kg. Decided to go for it as my cabinet could only fit standard 600mm width appliance.
Love the quality of this machine.
It’s a plus to be able to use wifi function on it to remote it to start or to notify me when washing is done when I’m out and about. The steam option is a plus but it easily washes out king quilt with ease. Super quiet even at the highest spin cycle.
Onl...y thing I would criticize is that sometimes on shorter cycle, water builds up at end of cycle in the softener tray, even with the use of non use of softener. But no big deal. Excellent buy. Considering good guys on eBay had 20% off as well. Plus $50 plus for delivery
Lg washing machine doing a good job so far. Cleans & rinse are good with water savings option. I have no problen in my washing since i bought it. Its very quiet & enery saver. It has smart phone diagnostics to reset factory settings, i love the touch control panel & smart diagnose.

Questions & Answers
I have an LG inverter 11 kg front loader washing machine. Its only two years old and I bought it brand new from the good guys. Lately when I put it on i get an error message of 03 when the machine only has 11 minutes to go. Looked at the instructions and went through everything it said to do. I have cleaned the filter and drained the water and it is still doing it. I also take things out half way thinking its unbalance but that doesnt work either. CAn someone please let me know what they think it is? Regards
My old machine had a standard 45min wash cycle. I cant find cycle lengths for this machine. If I put in a normal, (mixed load, lightly soiled) how long would it take to wash?
