Been on the look out for one of these for a while, that many different model numbers I have no idea if this is a good one or not but wife is happy as its silver and 8kg.

2 year guarantee as standard, extra 3 year guarantee at no extra cost via online registration after delivery. So total 5 year parts and labour warranty for free

agree looks good and decent price for a decent machine
I was having the same dilema Samsung or LG , but after speaking to experienced and knowlegeable sales people and reading forums went for a LG Machine.
It was 9kg 1400 and down to £400 from currys reluctantly. Got promotional 5years on machine and 10 years on inverter motor.

TIP:
Which ever one you get watch out for a hammer / banging noise when the machine fills up with water, nothing to worry about just turn down the water pressure going into the machine.

Had one (probably a slightly different model), broke about a month after warranty ended. Had someone look at fixing it, cost almost as much as a new machine, he recommended an LG too.
I would hang out for the 9kg model at that price.
Bought one a couple of months ago as I'd seen it on here £399 but got quidco and a further discount code.
Think that was Currys but John Lewis would no doubt price match.
Good machine though.
LG direct drive
Bullet prove washing machines.
I have this and no issues so far.
Very good machine.
Ours came with 5 years warranty
This site makes me laugh this goes hot yet nearly every other Samsung post goes cold despite being good deals with the miele nazis
The drum came away from the motor on the direct drive LG we had. Was great for a few years but once that went it was done. We actually got longer service out of a Beko than that.

Think ultimately you'll find horror stories about all brands. Would love to be able to afford a Miele but they're just too expensive when generally these damn things tend to break down when money is not exactly at its most abundant.

​I have an 8kg LG steam washing machine for 4years & my folks own a 9kg for 5 years. LG was £200 more expensive even though I got a £150 discount by googling for a code online. I sometimes wish I got the beko because the programs are faster. 17 min quick wash on the beko as opposed to a 20min quick wash on the LG (without the steam function) that goes up to 43mins if I select the 1400rpm spin (41mins 1200rpm spin). Where as the beko is always 17min on the max spin 1400rpm.

Direct drive or not both are silent. I can't agree more about appliances stopping when the funds are limited. I can feel the LG will go first as I can smell burnt rubber most days after a complete wash cycle lately. hopefully I'm wrong because I'd hate to beaten by a beko lol. both are great machines.
Sorry I missed out parent's 5 year old machine is the Beko.
I have lg washer and I've hated it from day 1 , mainly
Due to when I put it on quick wash only to find it been stuck on out of balance so never ends up a quick wash grrhhh
thanks op 10 years+ old Bosch maxx advantage broke down yesterday night about 60 mins before you posted!
Not to say this isn't a good post by the OP, but I think @Saro has hit the nail on the head here.
I have the 9kg version of this model, and though it has been trouble free so far, the only real advantage is that it has a quieter spin (when wash is properly balanced). Other than that, I set it on my own personal daily 1hr wash cycle of 60* with 1600 spin, which I probably use 95% of the time. A friend who is very frugal in her buying habits highlighted that many of us buy super fan-dangled machines, only to use the daily or quick wash most of the time.

I have this and i love it, bought it for £399 in Jan. It's true that you stick to the same cycle, i use the one hour wash 99% of the time and occasionally 20/30mins if just a couple of things in there. I have 5 year guarantee and 10 years on the inverter motor
you just try and claim a repair on that so called 5 year warranty ! That's why I will never buy another Samsung washing machine in my life. Oh and if your into home repair yourself most parts are special order you won't find them in the mainstream repair stockists for a quick repair, just make sure you have a local launderette.

​Mine was fine. 2 years Into the warranty. New motor job done. Wasn't the same model as above but similar.
Ordered, been looking around for the last week as my 4+ year Indesit has a broken concrete block (on the bottom) which besides being noisy works flawlessly (not for long I fear).

Thanks for the heads up, £80 a year on a machine is about my budget.

How do you reduce the water pressure going into the machine?
Not sure the difference but I got the WF80F5E2W4X last month from Currys for this price plus a £30 off voucher to get it at £369.99. Voucher code was LKA30 if it helps anyone

you can turn the mains supply down or partly close the valve on the washing machine connector you connect the machine water pipe

OR fit

Hi, I hear this noise in the first few seconds of switching on my machine. Is this due to over pressured water??
avoid, we had to return our Samsung machine

If its when your machine is taking in water and it sounds like a someone banging a hammer on the inside of the machine then chances are it is .
Which machine is it by the way ?

Are these also susceptible to this?

I had similar thing happen to me too had the washer dryer couldn't fault the machine when it worked though but was put off by the way it broke down after just three years
Currys have the 9kg version for £399
Worked in appliance industry. Avoid washer dryers, there more trouble than there worth. I would urge anyone who buys a washing machine to take out the extended warranty. Trust me you will need it!

I hate Washing Machines and dryers here in the UK, they're so **** weak. When I stayed in the US for a couple weeks, they had these giant top loaded machines that you could put a collapsed Star in and it still would cope with the weight.
For a family of 4 even a 7kg is enough. I recently got the LG 8KG from currys for 399 + extra 20 off. 5 yr parts and labour as standard. looks nice as well, better than the boring whites. LG F12U1TCN4 Silver
