    oh man this is tempting. my 15 yo LG 7kg is still cranking but leaks sometimes and the shocks are horrible with unbalanced loads.

    does anyone know if all LG are made in Sth Korea?

      Just bought an 8kg it was made in China

      I repaired my 7.5k intellowasher that is of a similar age. Most likely you have a similar leak as a result of the gasket seal. You can pop out the front lower panel on the LG (at the bottom) and try to determine where the leak is coming from by using a torch.

      In my case, it was the door gasket seal that had developed a small break. It is this big gray coloured rubber bit.

      I purchased a replacement from genuineapplianceparts.com.au

      The part I ordered was a 4986EN1003A ; they sent a 4986EN1003B (but it is compatible). You also need to purchase the replacement front clamp ring that keeps the gasket attached to the front door.

      As far as the springs within the washing machine that keeps things balanced, you can purchase replacements for those as well. I did not and instead tried to jimmy something up with zip ties. It did not work. In hindsight I should have just purchased the springs as well.

      These old LG washing mashines are pretty easy to work on. They are heavy though. You can easily take the top lid off and also that lower bottom panel and survey what is going on.

      Good luck!

        The front clamp was the most difficult bit to attach. There is a tool you can get that makes it simple. Without the tool it took me a good hour of frustration. The rear clam is easy to attach.

        •  

          Thanks @mshannon. I did research that and thought those parts might be the culprit. But the leak is sporadic. I have also changed the shocks last year but the knocking returned quickly.

    I've owned one of these for almost a year and like it way way more than the Bosch it replaced. It was half the price of the Bosch and does a much better job.
    I bought it for $950 and that took a lot of haggling. So this price looks good.

    • +1 vote

      Cheers for the review. Any specific pros you can give over said Bosch?

      • +1 vote

        The LG is smarter in the way it washes. Better cycles for large loads and doesn't go off balance like the Bosch did when you put a king size blanket or similar in. Spins intelligently adjusting for the load giving you dryer cloths to hang up.
        Cons on the Bosch
        - more than half full loads would come out with dry patches on the clothes no matter how many extra rinses you added. The water saving is at the sake of actually being able to wash a full load as only the cloths on the outside of the drum get fully washed. This is even when water saver was turned off.
        - the door electric latch part failed 3 times which is annoying as it's hard to get your wet cloths outs, even the little red pull cable doesn't open it when it fails completely latched. Really common fault so at least parts and youtube instructions available.
        - The door handle pivots on the latch by a little bit of plastic that snaps. Replaced twice under warranty, one time they even replaced the whole door. Failed a 3rd time out of warranty and I just used it without a handle.
        - For what it cost, it was an absolute lemon from day 1. Would only ever be OK if you used it as a 5KG washer.
        Cons on the LG
        - The menu items on the right are not intuitive. Some you have to press, some press and hold for 3 seconds to activate the extra function. It makes people think that the cycles are not adjustable, it's more that the controls are not intuitive.
        - The Wash cycles in the menu are not all useful unless you use the app to send it customized cycles. Kind of a plus as well as the app is not bad.
        - The "quick" cycle of 45 minutes, if you read the fine print is only supposed to be used with half sized lightly soiled loads.

        Hang on - I just realized that this is the VW5 or series 5 version which is the bottom of the range. I bought the VW9 or series 9. I think the difference between series 5 to 7 to 9 is the addition of more smarts, steam and turbo water jets. I purposely bought the one with the turbo jets that spray water into the middle of the drum after having so many issues with the Bosch not wetting cloths in the middle for large loads.

      Do you know how often these come around?

  •  

    I have a similar but 11 kilo LG front loader washing machine, purchased a couple of years ago. Cleans well and we are happy with it in general.
    Just be aware, the washing cycles take hours to complete, at least on mine. But I think this might a thing with most new front loader washing machines any way.
    Good price btw.
    Thanks OP for sharing the deal.

    •  

      There's no "Daily Wash" or "Mixed cycle" type thing that can do around 1hour or 1.5 hours?

      I have a long Cottons cycle on my Samsung, but a Daily Wash which I use mostly as it takes just over an hour.

      •  

        Yes we use the "daily wash" or whatever it's called (can't recall otmh) which is the shortest, and that takes approx 2.5 hrs to complete.

        •  

          I believe it depends on weight and water temp?

          Heavier load & cold water takes longer

          I use hottest water setting when I do duvet or towels

    I have recently bought the 7.5kg one. Not sure if the same issues are encountered for the larger models such as this, but I have to say I am quite disappointed with it.
    The main issues I have are
    - Lack of customisation of cycles: I can't fully decide cycles, for example I want a quick cycle with 60 degrees, but it's not possible, only the full 1.5 hours+ cycles allow for 60deg
    - Rough with clothes, had several t-shirts, some of them basically new, coming out with holes from it
    - Cycle gets often stuck before spin, especially if there's only one or two items in it especially when there's some soaked item that is quite heavy, probably a safety system that prevents spins with unbalance load, but it's quite annoying because it happens quite often

    Good things are
    - Silent
    - Smart features are ok

    •  

      I think the 7.5kg is different to the larger ones, plus there's a series 5, 7 and 9.
      The App lets you customize any cycle and assign favorites to the main dial so you don't need to use the app after setting it up.
      I've got the larger version in the series 9 that has the "Artificial Intelligence" marketing hype LG are going on about. I've thrown bath mats to king donnas to delicates and it's never got stuck or off spin or damaged anything. When it starts it does a minute or so of weighing and agitating what's in there to try to figure out what it needs to do before it starts. This changes the finish time as if it finds things it thinks it has to treat differently it can take longer. Good and bad as the wash you think you're going to blast through quickly may want to take longer after it has it's little think.

      •  

        Just walked over to my machine, rotated dial to Quick Cycle it light up 40deg and 39 minutes. Pressed the temp button to move it to 60deg. It changed the finish time to 57 minutes.

  •  

    1200 and 1400 rpm spins are very shaky and noisy. The machine is 8kg, one month old, on flat hard surface.
    Older LG Washer was much smoother comparatively

    •  

      I find 1200rpm on my 7.5 kg to be perfectly silent and smooth. Probably you need to ajdust the supports.

  •  

    I'd love a machine one day to have a complete user determined cycle.
    Things I'd like to be able to set
    - Washing time
    - Washing temp
    - Number of rinses and each rinse duration and water level of each rinse
    - How much water level is (sometimes I want a bit more water than default)
    - Set how many spins - ie one after wash, one after each rinse, and final long spin
    - How long each spin goes for

    Most people wouldn't want the above feature, but it'd be great if you could some how have a app that you could program all this and 'set' it as a user cycle that remembers it ongoing.

    I just like to customise things a bit more than what is often available.

    •  

      I honestly can't understand why there's no such option already. It's frustrating! I would imagine it would be easy to implement through the app, but no.

    •  

      As if someone wants reliability of iphone in a xiaomi phone where he can toast the system as per his taste with custom roms and it should still keep running for 20 years 😄
      Just an opinion, please don’t feel offended

      •  

        Agree that too much customizability can be detrimental to reliability, however there must be some degree of it. Why for examply not allowing something as simple as a 60degree quick wash?

        •  

          I just opened the LG app up to check if it gives full edit capabilities. It doesn't, Instead offers you 39 different preset cycle options (things like Hygine, Baby Care, etc. - So a series 9 has 39 cycle types, a series 5 may have less) that you can either send to the machine or assign to the "Download Cycle" on the rotatory dial. But with all of them you just need to get close to what you want and then adjust using the on machine buttons. e.g. select a quick wash and then just change it from 40deg to 60deg.

          •  

            @steve54321: Yeah I know all of that… but you can't do that, at least on mine. Quick wash is limited to Cold-20-40 degrees, can't choose higher than that.

            • +1 vote

              @liongalahad: You made me walk over to mine again to see if it went further - for me quick stops at 60deg and I can't up it to 95deg.

              Off topic - but this made me think of it - a tip from a repair guy a while back - Run a 95deg cycle through every once in a while as it kills all the mold - stops the door seal rubber from getting moldy.

    I have the exact same model but lucky to have paid less @$780 at one of the eBay sale. Have been using it for a few months and really impressed with the washing result. It connects to your phone and you can monitor when the washing will be completed. Also can do a remote start and adjust settings from your phone.

    A quirk about the IQ mode is that it adjust the time required based on the load, and it can reach 3+ hours if you jam a full load. Usually I bypass this by using the quick 30 mode instead and haven't noticed any difference in the result

    •  

      Hi. So if I was to load the machine in the morning before work, I can start it remotely and have it finished when I get home?
      My old LG waasher has a timer, but only for it to start in 3,6 or 8 hours time.

      •  

        Yep you can do that, either you start the machine remotely at work or set the delay start to be completed when you get home. All from the app

        •  

          Awesome, thanks.

    I have this washing machine if anyone has any questions.

    Mine has been pretty good. I fine the default wash cycles timing very weird, not the biggest fan of the AI stuff. But now I just use Ai for towels/bed sheets and a 1 hour wash for my normal clothes.

    •  

      You have 1h wash cycle? Few people said this thing takes long time and the Daily Cycle takes hours.

      •  

        @living4music - There’s no official 1 hour wash with this model sadly. The higher models just have more wash cycles from what I gathered.

        You download the 30 minute wash, then add a pre rinse, post rinse and intensive option. 40 degree wash and 1000 spin. All up takes 1:05.

        It would be good to have an option to download more settings or just have a rinse only setting. I do miss this from my old Samsung.

    •  

      Hi @StonedWizard. Can u plz confirm if ur washer uneven rounds and noticiable shaking at 1200 and 1400rpm?
      It’s quite as long as it’s 800rpm. Bearable even at 1000rpm, but higher than that, you can hear it outside laundry.
      My Washer is 1 month old 8kg one of same series

      •  

        @vikaskamboj - It’s definitely loud, but I haven’t noticed it being anymore louder or unbalanced than other washing machines I’ve had.

        I am comparing it to machines 10+ years old though.

      As long as you place the dryer on top of the washer with a stacking mat in between.
