A serious energy-saver. The LG F12A8TDA provides excellent washing performance and boasts an A+++ efficiency rating. Choose from 14 programmes, including a 30-minute quick wash for those in a hurry and a quiet wash for finishing laundry overnight or while a baby sleeps. Its 8kg drum holds about 40 T-shirts, which is a great fit for a medium-size household. Its Direct Drive technology affords six distinct washing movements of the drum, ensuring results you’ll love. And you’ll save both time and expense, since it’s free of pulleys or belts, which use more energy and can wear out.

"Fantastic machine!!!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, and it plays music to you!!!!!

Cons: none

"We had our old hotpoint machine for about 8 years and really abused it!! It finally gave up and was totally unrepairable! It took us days of searching to find the perfect machine and we think this one fits the bill. The only reservation I had when making the final decision was the wash time, in the product info it states 2 hours for a normal wash, which put me off as my old machine was much quicker, But so far the longest wash I have selected is 1 hour, with a quick wash at 30 mins. I would highly recommend this machine, in fact I already have! And also the boots service was second to none & cheapest around."

"Stylish and Efficient"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"Bought this LG washing machine following a house move where we left our built in machine behind. My husband was impressed with the new direct drive technology and we both thought it looked very modern and stylish - which it certanly does in situ! The description doesn't do justice to the versatility of the programming. You can adjust temperature, spin speed and select time save for most wash programmes. Like another reviewer the longest programme I use for cottons (bedding and towels etc) is just over an hour. I would recommend this machine without hesitation. I just love it, especially the little tune it plays at the end of the cycle!"

"Great purchase!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"Well after suffering with a noisy hoover washing machine, this is like a dream come true. It's really quiet, apart from when it's filling with water. The spin speed is 1200 but it performs better and gets the clothes drier than the 1400 hoover did. You can customise each cycle, changing everything, temp, spin speed etc and set it as your favourite. I can now have a conversation in the kitchen without having to shout!! The only thing I would say is, if you fit it yourself, make sure you level it exactly and make sure your floor is solid. We had to tack our vinyl type laminate floor down because of the vibration, never had a problem when the other washer was in. All is fine now, and I really can't fault it. My mum has the LG 9kg and she loves hers too."

LG F12A8TDA Washing Machine

There’s a wool programme and a delicates wash, as well as a cycle for hard-to-remove stains like mud and grease. The spin cycle runs at a maximum 1200RPM and rotates in both directions, which will help save your clothes from stubborn creases.

Its 8kg drum holds about 40 T-shirts, which is just right for a medium-size household. Loading is a snap, too, thanks to its wide-opening door.

The unit’s Direct Drive technology affords six distinct washing movements of the drum, ensuring results you’ll love. And you’ll save both time and expense, since it’s free of pulleys or belts, which use more energy and can wear out. Annual energy consumption averages at 156Kwh, which at 15p/unit translates into a cost of roughly £23.40 to run for a whole year.

The 19-hour (max) time delay function means you’ll complete laundry on your own schedule, and never have to leave wet washing till you get home.

A child safety lock keeps your little ones out of harm’s way. And for added peace of mind, you’ll get a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, plus a decade-long guarantee on the Direct Drive motor.
