GazzerUK's review of LG F1479FDS6 Steam Direct Drive Washing Machine

★★★★☆

“Interesting alternative to Bosch or Miele”

Written on: 06/02/2012 by GazzerUK (30 reviews written)

The good
Its a nice styled washer - looks very modern
Seams to be well built. The quality of the materials and design is good.
Large door and drum - easy to do large loads
Quiet - Very quiet machine even when on full spin. Better than my last top of the range Bosch 'Silence' Model
Programs - Lots of program choices
Seams to ring a lot of water out, without clothes being too creased.
Has a steam function for nappies. Although we don't have babies!
A rated, so cheap to run.

The bad
Sometimes the drum clatters about a bit when it is not quite evenly distributed.
Stopped once 5 minutes before the end with en error "Load is not balanced"
Doesn't quite disolve all the powder on some washes.
Wool items come out very creased - need to manually reduce the spin speed
The options are a bit un-user friendly to select. There are two options buttons, which are not intuitive, and it is guess-work what each of them do.
It is a very deep washer, in other words it sticks out about 3 inches more into the kitchen that my old Bosch did. It won't sit flush with your kitchen units.
A bit pricey (Paid £600, but its £700 in Comet)For £700 you would be better off with an entry level Miele.
Steam function only works on cotton, and extends the wash cycle to about 3 hours!
