To get this price you need to take out a £1 Which? trial, which you can promptly cancel, if you wish. You will then be emailed a discount code for £15 off.

The price quoted is inclusive of £19.95 standard delivery.

Right now, all LG washing machine prices have gone through the roof, but if you need the best cheapest washing machine deal at the right side of £300, this is it.

Don't let the maximum 1200 spin speed put you off either. LG spin is super efficient and extracts water as well as 1400 spin from the rivals. It'll make your drum bearings last a little longer too.

In a recent Which? survey, LG were voted the No 1 washing machine brand for reliability scoring 94% beating the likes of Samsung, Zanussi, AEG, Bosch, Neff, Siemens and even Miele.

Although the price is at the entry level end of LG, many of the internals are exactly the same as models costing 3 times the price. Same double glazed smoked glass drum door, same program selector dial and buttons, same LED panel display, same 6 motion wash system, same direct drive inverter motor with the 10 year warranty, same NFC diagnosis and downloadable programs, same class leading energy efficiency and the same ultra quiet noise levels.

Apart from the attractive shiny steel finish, this model also benefits from a metallic dial selector, illuminated start/pause and on/off buttons and chrome lined door. These are enhancements not normally found at the budget end of the LG range.

LG really does blow everything else out of the water, but two things to watch out for. Water hammer which if a problem just turn down the inlet water pressure and noise levels on suspended wooden flooring which may be alleviated by purchasing anti-vibration floor pads.

Finally don't forget Topcashback offering 2.16%.

This or Ecobubble or whirlpool supremecare 6th sense?


Depends on your tick box priorities and your budget. The only obvious downside for some people with this deal is the 1200 spin speed. Everything else though is a win win. What I would say sets this apart from the Samsung and Whirlpool is the build quality and reliability, which in turn will impact on the longevity of the machine. On top of that the LG is up with the best of them on noise, cleaning performance, energy efficiency and features. Bear in mind also the Ecobubble is designed to work with powder, rather than liquid detergent.

Was thinking about this LG for £279 + del at the Co op electrical.coop.co.uk/lau…-w/
I know it's only 6.5kg but I was hoping it might share the same internals, also reviews are thin on the ground for this model

You're right about the internals. Much are the same and as you point out the key difference is the 1.5 KG difference in drum capacity. The other is the Co-op drum door is single glazed whereas this one is double glazed, although the outer glazing is tinted plastic so you won't be able to see your laundry very well. The advantage though is helps to suppress the already quiet noise levels just that bit more and does look more stylish, especially with the chrome lining on the outer circumference. Aside from that and the colour the selector dial has a classier metallic look and it looks like the start and pause buttons may be illuminated, but can't find a video to confirm it. However, a close up appears to show these etched icons on the buttons as translucent.
The locking latch on the inside of the door looks a bit flimsy and made out of plastic?
Well done. You've spotted LG's weakest link. Previous generation LG washers had solid metal locking latches. At least the hinges are solid and better than many rivals. Bearing in mind 5 Year warranties were available on other LG models with the same latch design, then one would have thought there was at least some confidence in the design. Still looks a lot stronger than the really flimsy Indesit design. Worst case scenario, it's a low cost part to replace and may even be a manageable DIY job to replace if ever needed. Just taken a close look at my silver coloured latch. Feels solid enough and can't tell whether it's plastic or metal.

Yes, we've both extolled the virtues of LG washing machines in previous threads and mine keeps going on and on and it has a metal latch else I'd be all over this.
