Its just the direct drive motor has the 10 year guarantee right not the rest of the machine, the electronics, pump etc?

The direct drive motor that runs our washing machines is reliable as well as quiet. We guarantee it won’t let you down. In fact, we trust it so much that all machines come with a 10 year warranty on the motor and all its parts as standard – even though there’s nothing standard about it.
So everything else is just the normal 12 month
EDIT From LG site
Period of Coverage
Labor : 24 months(consumer use)
Parts : 24 Months(consumer use)
Exception : 10 Years on Direct Drive Motor only (consumer use only)
Warranty Policy : During the Warranty period, LGEUK shall, at its option 1) repair the LG product using new or used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability or 2) replace the LG product with a product that is formed from new and/or used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability. NOTE: If the appliance is being used in a commercial environment then the LG manufacturers warranty (parts & labour) will be limited to a period of 12 months.

Use 'APPL10' for ten quid off.

Average price, slow spin.

Its the circuit board that goes, or the pump......

Wouldn't worry about the spin. I replaced my Servis (I know) 1400rpm machine with a Bosch 1200rpm. The difference is negligible. Apparently a lower spin speed puts less strain on the washing machine anyway, so it's win-win.

a friend if mine is a washing machine repair man.... he really rates the lg machines for build quality :-)

Got rid of my LG (Frankenstein) washer last year. In 7 years it had everything replaced pump, bearings inners, only thing that was not replaced was the door and outer casing!

I owned one of these LG direct drive washing machines and it cost me a fortune., the build quality was terrible. After 18 months everything apart from the direct drive went wrong and I replaced the machine after 3 years.

gotta be better than our Beko, useless machine with awful awful awful aftercare

Hot

I bought LG F1456QD Washing Machine £350.00 in Nov 2011 and never had anything go wrong yet. My only issue is that the wash is either 30 or 40 or 60 degrees (I would like option of 50 degrees) and the wash powder drawer is hard to clean the fabric conditioner from. Also there is a half hour wash but highest temp is 39 degrees on it and I would like a 50 and 60 degree fast wash really. But other than that it is the quietest spin ever in the history of time and I would buy only LG again due to this. Previously my old Hotpoint was so loud it was like an aeroplane taking off and the Indesit one I had before that was also very loud.

this item is oos

This washing machine has on-line fault diagnosis................made me think..............if this machine is anything like their smart tv's it will contact the lg computors and register all the stains in your washing and post them on facebook......this could be very embarrasing,if you get my drift.

I'm very sceptical of the spiel like "LG F12B8QDA washing machine is so quiet you could run it at night without disturbing your sleep".....we have a hotpoint with '"shh, super silent" plastered on the side of it that disturbs next doors roof timbers when its a full spin

10 year warranty means little, usual marketing crap to suck in the gullible.

Yes it's complete rubbish, pedalling the myth that a "direct drive" machine must be quiet.

when machine broke down or body n hinges finish with rust keep the motor in show case for 10 years warrenty.

Hotpoint and indesit are basicaly the same brand:
en.wikipedia.org/wik…int

our lg is 2 years old now used every day, no problems yet - I got fed up with bosch and there rubbish motors so tried an LG - not the same model but really good quality and dead quite at full spin (if the machine is empty!)

We have had our LG washing machine for 6 months now. A lot quieter than the Hotpoint that it replaced.
If you can get AO.com to match the price I would buy it from there. The Hotpoint came from Currys, when they delivered it they literally threw it off the back of the lorry, probably why it didn't last as long as our previous washing machines. I cannot fault the service from AO.com, I decide not to pay the fee for taking the old machine away & give the old one to the local scrap man. I got a call from AO soon after placing the order offering to take it away for free.
Kept informed right up to it being delivered. Excellent service.

Had a direct drive LG since 2006, used regularly, very quiet and never had an issue with it.
I'd buy another one.

Yes heard this before, my last 2 machines have been a 1600 spin, I only use this in the winter for towels and jeans, easy to reduce spin speed to 1400 or even less, prolongs the life of the machine.

Especially on a machine with a reputation for killing drum bearings due to having to support a large heavy motor on the back. I bet that "motor" guarantee doesn't include bearings, which just shows what a complete con it is. Effectively it doesn't cover any moving parts at all, when you consider that what goes wrong with moving parts is the bits that come into contact with other parts.

A guarantee on a conventional washing machine's motor, being a separate unit, must by its very nature include the bearings. LG could argue that because there are no bearings dedicated to the motor in its machine, they are in fact drum bearings so are not covered.

I'd love to hear that this motor guarantee does actually cover the bearings but the cynic in me says it doesn't. (_;)

What's your current washing machine model. Does it have a brushless motor? (Not the same as direct drive.)

i have an LG direct drive, and it really is as close to silent as i think you can get with a washing machine, i dont mean it is not loud either, i mean it is quiet. You can whisper next to it when spinning and someone else in the room can still hear you.

i work in a dry-cleaners and i will admit the 2 miele washing machines we have there are probably just as quiet but cost a hell of alot more so when you can get silence from the LG for £250 or from the Miele for +£1000. if that is your main request of the washing machine i would pick the LG. Dont get me wrong the Miele's are better for the adjustments on the programs and are probably better for water consumption and are better machines when it comes to build quality but the LG is just as quiet.

i couldnt afford to buy a Miele so i went for a LG and it hasnt let me down yet (2 years in)

10 year guarantee on the motor is a worthless guarantee and they don't even state if the guarantee is both parts and labour on the motor and how is that actioned. If 7 years from purchase you employ your local repair man who is much cheaper than LG's official repair man and he encounters a motor fault what happens? Likely you wont get the motor unless you always use a LG endorsed repair agent and 99% of the time it will not be the motor that goes wrong if they give only the motor such a long guarantee. Same a the hotpoint 5 or 10 years parts guarantee which means ridiculous labour charges.

The reality is the only guarantee that matters is one that is parts and labour and only those guarantee's should be compared. In this instance you have a 2 year guarantee. Effectively £125 for each guaranteed year which is hardly competitive with the many deals where you get a full 5 year parts and labour but at least its better than only 1 year.

Thanks! Looks like it came back today!

I have LG direct drive, used daily for years, very quiet spin, and has the option of spin only, for an extra fast spin after ther wash. Wouldnt buy any other make after having this one.

But any washing machine with a brushless motor will be equally quiet with the same type of load. Don't fall for the direct drive hype. It's not the belt that makes the noise, it's the motor.

Sample of one - you will be able to find thousands of people who say the same thing about their washing machines - whatever the make.

Agreed. These 10 year motor-only warranties are a marketing gimmick. Trust me - many other parts will fail before the motor. They offer these warranties as they know that the motor is very unlikely to fail.

my comment on the 10 year guaranty is (as I have had the chance to get a detailed look at the motor) is - it's no surprising that they can guaranty it for 10 years as there are no moving parts and nothing to go wrong (really well designed basically it's just one big e magnet) - just look at it as one lest thing to go wrong unfortunately the controller of the motor is not guaranteed, I got fed up fixing brushes on my last two machines and lg seem to have got things right!

That's right, as I said earlier. But there are many machines that have brushless motors which aren't direct drive - please don't perpetuate the confusion between two things.
