Not sure if I should get this it a 9kg Kenwood for £50 less at Currys


You would be better off paying £399 for the 9KG model in Currys instead. Discount codes may be available to shave off a few quid. You'll benefit from a free 5 Year Warranty, it'll last you twice as long, is quieter, more technically advanced and better built. But don't take my word for it. Check out the manufacturer information for Kenwood on the UK White Goods website, then check out LG. No contest!

Great price, our LG is still going strong after 12 years so when it eventually dies I hope prices like this are still popping up.

I don't necessarily need 9kg, im just moving home and looking for value for money. That and the hoover seems best value but suppose lg direct drive for 300 isn't bad
My opinion don’t buy a hoover one never had anything from them that lasts a day over it’s warranty!!! Approx 1-2 yrs
I’m a hotpoint person myself never had a faulty one yet ... ask my 25 yr old chest freezer n yes she’s being allowed her bus pass now

This is the current situation with Hotpoint according to UK White Goods:

Hotpoint products are in the lower to middle range on price with the exception of the new Aqualtis range which is generally in the £4-700 plus bracket. This would appear to be a move into Bosch territory.

Sadly from our experience the vast bulk of the current Hotpoint appliances appear to be little more than a re-badged Indesit with some extra features and the quality is not what it was.

We expect through 2016 and beyond that production will be made to come in line with standard Whirlpool products. How good or bad they prove to be remains to be seen.
Bargain and one of the best value machines your going to get sub £300
nice one op and good avatar, XTC
I wouldn't touch LG washing machine with a barge pole. Purchased one recently and water would get behind the recess on the digital touch panel display causing me to experience electric shocks every time I tried to operate the display! LG were next to useless.

Was that the recalled model without the program selector dial? If so, it's a one off issue. I've used LG washers for the last 19 years without a hitch. Just started on my 3rd machine. The last two machines lasted 9 years of daily use and with both the drum bearings wore out due to wear and tear.

I have an LG and so far after 7 years the only fault I've had is a door catch which was easy to fix and cost £5.95.Quiet well made machines I will definitely another when mine packs up.

Funny you should say that. The door catch is the only feature where I've noticed a drop in quality from the earlier generation models. If there was one feature I would like to see LG change it's to go back to old solid metal design. That aside, they are hard to fault.
Don’t buy a Hoover! We paid £280 for ours from curry’s exactly a year ago. Ours died 1 day past the warranty 😔 their customer services is shocking and they seem to not give a **** about customers once they’ve paid for their goods.

One day past the 2year warranty?

If this ever happened on an LG washing machine you would have to be incredibly unlucky. Although the posted model doesn't qualify for the free 5 year warranty, it still shares the same internals as the models that do. Also if you look at any reviews it is extremely rare that any faults occur at all early into their lifespan.
I've got this, and if level on floor surface it's really quiet. Nothing like the sound of a traditional washing machine. I highly recommend it. The sound of the water going into it is pretty much as loud as it gets.

And that's why many of their models, this one included feature double glazed doors to help cut down the water swooshing noise too!

As long as our government doesn't decide to do a "Donald Trump" on us. I would hate it if we had those tariffs on South Korean washing machines imposed on us. Those American Whirlpool washers aren't a patch on those technically superior non-American LG equivalents!

I've got a grey model and for the life of me a can't get it level on our tiled floor, sounds so loud when spinning at 1400.

Have you tried pulling out the washing machine and adjusting the rear feet too? Could be a slightly uneven floor surface beneath the worktop. Also contact with the side of the washing machine affects vibration too. Must say the supplied anti-slip pads also stop the machine from moving forwards. Yes, there's a fair bit of trial and error, but with persistence it is possible to almost eliminate vibration at 1400 spin speed altogether.

Yeah ours was not even for months, moved it level a few weeks ago Nd u had to keep checking it was on!
I have suspended flooring in my kitchen and the 9kg one I bought a couple months back won't stop vibrating, shaking and banging around.

I contacted LG and the said this machine is not suitable for suspended flooring as the motor is at the rear. I bought it from currys and when I contacted them they agreed with not being suitable for suspended flooring.

They don't advertise this or tell you when purchasing the machine. I didn't know about this either.

I tried to return it but they won't accept it as its because of the floor not the machine.

LG say its not their fault as they give all the info to the reseller but it's up to Currys to tell this to the customer.

I even purchased those anti vibration feet but doesn't help.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Oh and yea if anyone is buying these LG machines and has suspended flooring. Do some research first.

Did this give you superpowers?
I was on the verge of purchasing a Candy 9kg 1600rpm washing machine for £220. Would paying the additional £80 and sacrificing the drum capacity and spin speed be worth it?
Excellent washing machines, had mine 8 years without any issue.

You bet. Due to the washer's spinning efficiency 1400 is almost dry. Even 1200 gives respectable results. You will gain by better build quality, reliability, quietness and a more pleasant user experience. Even the 9KG version at £399 from Currys will serve you better, bearing in mind you are getting 5 years free warranty included.

Either model should give you a decade's worth of hassle free laundry - something you are unlikely to get with the Candy judging by their track record.

Currys, Hughes or AO for the current 9KG LG best buys. All in the £399 ball park and all qualify for the free 5 year warranty before 28th February.

Indesit 7kg/1400 on AO.com for £219 in white.

I've just got the silver one for sightly more and it's an excellent machine. Very quiet, easy to use, lots of options. 9kg model available for £249 too.

This one posted isn't bad though.

The problem is you're not really comparing like with like. Indesit are a brand built to a low cost and therefore the quality of components, build quality and reliability reflect this. The LG on the other hand usually costs quite a bit more than this and this is a reflection both in build quality, reliability and more importantly longevity. Have a close look at the two brands in a shop and feel the difference. Remember, price is one thing, value is quite another.

LG anD also Samsung are way better value when you look at the warranties and also the build quality compared to kenwood, hoover, hotpoint and other cheaper brands. Hotpoint is a really bad company to deal with when it comes to warranty.
Gee wish I had waited and bought this over our all singing all dancing Bosh which is rubbish.

Tried it again and now says delivery within 22 days! Shame you can't fiddle with the addresses to find stock and then amend it on your order before paying for the item!
