LG V7 FWV796STSE Washer-Dryer in Graphite - Usability Issues

3/5
Pros: 1. A beautiful looking machine which matches my chocolate brown and beige fitted kitchen well. 2. Its automatic drying cycle dries incredibly well and takes much less time than my previous Washer-Dryer. 3. It has an extensive range of washing cycles plus extra ones to download. 4. I cannot complain so far at the standard and efficiency of washing and drying. 5. Because of its smaller depth, the machine fits more snugly under the work surface. Cons: 1. The main problem is the poor usability of the controls and the manual. This is due to the control panel being difficult to read through insufficient contrast (black words printed on the 'graphite' colour), lack of illumination of buttons on the touch pad, and dual purpose buttons. The manual is written more like a book than an instruction manual with only one 13cm wide and 3.8cm high diagram of the control panel. In addition, some of the display graphics were not explained in the manual at all. 2. Because the controls couldn't be seen properly, at first I couldn't connect the machine to my Wi-Fi. I only solved this when I dowloaded the PDF version of the manual (which is the same as the one that comes with the machine) and made an extra large print-out of the panel on paper (now laminated). I could then see the Wi-Fi button. I recommend other users do this and also buy the machine in a white colour. 3. Eventually connecting my machine to my Wi-Fi and installing the LG ThinQ app enabled me to run the wash and dry cycles from the app which is a lot clearer than the control panel on the machine. There are also extra cycles that can be individually dowloaded. However, some extras I find I can only run by using the control panel on the machine not in the app - for example, the Pre-Wash and Intensive Wash which are confusingly on the same button on the machine itself.

The Laundry Future is here!

5/5
We’d had our previous washer/ dryer for 8 years, replaced after it broke down from constant wash cycles due to having twin boys. This new LG machine is amazing, great cycles, fast, quiet & uses less energy. I was sceptical about it having wifi but it’s very handy for setting spin cycles when in a different room or upstairs with the kids. Even putting on pause when jumping in the bathroom so you can have a hot shower. Great machine!

Does what it is supposed to do!

5/5
A normal load of laundry comes out clean, soft, and completely dry in around 3hrs. Never had a washer dryer before to compare it to but that is fantastic compared to hanging laundry all around the flat for days!! Much quieter than the old washer. Have not tried all the programs or had any need for the wi-fi function yet but so far it seems easy to use. Smells slightly plasticky when drying but I think this will wear off. Installation instructions are easy to follow, tool you need and pipework included. Was a bit worried it wouldn't fit in the space in the kitchen as both are exactly 600mm but it just squeezed in.

Wash + dry programme works perfectly if you follow the instruction

5/5
No complaints so far. The washer dryer is very intelligent that it adjust the wash + dry programme time automatically by sensing how heavy is your clothes. The clue is not to put too many clothes than it supposed to work on, around 6kg consider the dry. Or else the programme will be lengthy, like 6.5 hours. But even so the clothes are still completely dry after the lengthy programme. I start the programme before I sleep so doesn't matter it takes 3 or 6 or longer hours anyway. By the way the machine is very quiet to my surprise. Even better as I tend to use it during night time.

Great machine

4/5
A great washer/dryer which gets the washing really clean and is amazingly quiet. However, it does appear to be unbalanced and makes a disconcerting amount of clanging when it starts the spin cycle. How do I resolve this?

5 star from me.

5/5
Great purchase, it does a great wash and the drying is perfect with no ironing to do (so far). The noise levels are very low as well which is a bonus as i do most my washer/drying at night. This product does everything i need it to and so far i have not found anything i don't like about it. I highly recommend it.

So pleased

5/5
Extremely stylish and sleek design with multiple wash settings that we have used the majority of. Super easy to navigate, we couldn’t ask for more.

Great so far

4/5
So far very happy with the cleaning and drying. I have not worked out all the functions yet. Minus one star as I only purchased this because it had a 5 year warranty bug when I registered the machine it says 24 months. Trying to sort this out at the moment.
