Connection, Disposal, Disconnection

We want you to get up and running straight away with your new appliance, which is why our expert team will connect your new item to your water pipes and make sure everything is working properly. Connecting it yourself? Make sure you remove the transit bolts. These will make a loud rattling sound if they’re left in place when you run a cycle.
Disposal £ 24.99
We’ll happily take away your old appliance for you and recycle it. All we ask is that it’s disconnected, empty and ready to go. The fee for this service relates to the cost of taking your old appliance away on our van rather than the recycling service.

We’ll disconnect your old appliance when we deliver your new one
This includes the tricky job of disconnecting it from your water pipes

6 drum motions reduce creases and give a deep clean
Dimensions (cm) - H85 x W60 x D58
With an 8kg drum, this LG washing machine is perfect for a medium-sized household. It’s been awarded A+++ for energy efficiency, the highest rating on the market - so it'll reduce your impact on the environment. And, with an average annual energy cost of just £18.02, this model is kind to your pocket too. Built with 6 Motion technology, the clever drum uses 6 different movements that mirror hand washing techniques, so all of your fabrics get a tailored clean.
This machine can take 4 hours on a wash. You need an android phone to download extra programmes which wasn't stated. The quick wash only spins on 800 max which means you need to put it through a rinse and spin so you can use 1200 or 1400 spin so a quick wash then takes 40 mins instead of 20 mins

Not a proper child lock!
My only concern ( and the most important) is the child lock.in this washing machine it works only on the panel, once the start or power is pressed, that's it. Washing has to be started all over again. How annoying ! If you have small children I do not recommend it. Big flashy on/off button attracts children and child lock doesn't really lock it .
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet

Ease of Use4
Feature packed and very quiet
I have had the washing machine for around 1 month, so these are only initial thoughts and I cannot comment on the longevity of the machine.
First off, the machine looks great and it is convenient to open the door as the handle is towards the top of the door.
For simply washing clothes, the machine is easy to use: load the clothes, add detergent and press the start button. There are no detected eco modes as all them are supposed to be eco. The default 'cotton' cycle takes around 1.5 hours for a full load of clothes (without the turbo wash feature) and the clothes have always been very clean and smelt fresh, and much dryer than my old (also 1400rpm) machine, when the cycle has finished. There is a 'cotton large' cycle which I use for towels which defaults to 60°C and actually uses less energy than the 40°C cycle according to the handbook. This takes 4 hours for a full load. There are plenty of other speciality cycles including for delicates and sports wear, and also you can download wash cycles to the machine from an Android phone which is easy to do. Whilst some are obvious, it is not immediately clear what others are for and some overlap (there is a silent mode and noise minimise mode) but you probably won't need to use them anyway. For most programs, the machine weighs the load to use the right amount of water and electricty. I used a spirit level to install the machine, so it is completely level and hence the spin part of the cycle is extremely quite, and can I can now use it in the night without waking anyone in the house up, which my old washer used to do.
The Android app also allows you to diagnose errors using NFC and you can see stats on your washing. A useful feature is a countdown for when you need to run a special wash to clean out the machine (every 30 cycles). For iPhone you can diagnose errors too, as the machine plays a series of beeps which the app deciphers.
The only problem I've had so far with it is an unbalanced load error, which is a safety measure to prevent damage to the drum during the spin. I had to remove a bath mat and let it dry separately, and then it was able to spin the rest of the towels in the machine. Additionally it can be quite loud when it fills with water, but that could be due to the water pressure where I live. The detergent drawer is a bit flimsy but it doesn't affect how you use it. It also stays very clean because I think the machine blasts water into it to get rid of any residue.
It is easy to change features like the spin speed and wash temperature, but there are quite a few icons on the display which are not immediately obvious such as the pre wash mode.
Overall, it is an excellent washing machine which does its main job (wash clothes) exceptionally well. The 5 yeare guarantee on everything, and 10 year guarantee on the motor, give you confidence that it was built to last a long number of years.
Pros: Good build quality, Looks good, QuietCons: Complicated
