    5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quiet, easy to use washing machine 30 Jun 2011
    We bought this machine after our old Blomberg 1300 finally gave up the ghost after 20 odd years faithfull service. I looked at many machines and spent a whole day walking around the usual electric stores looking at what felt like every washing machine known to man. As a family with young children, we wanted a machine that was easy to use, economical and wasn't going to bust the bank. We finally settled on this LG model as it ticked all the boxes for us. It was a great price on Amazon at under 290 pounds so we ordered.
    The courier Amazon used, rang us to arrange a convenient delivery day and time, though it took a little longer than i would have liked, and seemed to sit in the couriers warehouse for a day or two after marked as despatched from Amazon - nothing to mark down the machine for.
    The machine itself has proved to be brilliant. Clear installation instructions - make sure you read them and remove the transit bolts and level the feetand use the supplie spanner to lock them out!
    The instruction manual initially looks a little complicated, but it is very straightforward. Onto using it. After installing and running a recommended cotton cycle with no load to 'flush' any nasties that may be in there, i ran two consecutive full loads(we'd been without a machine for a week, so laundry had built up. The first load with detergent in the hopper on the machine and the second using a plastic ball that goes in with the load. Both came out clean and the 1200 spin speed meant that everything was pretty dry - no problems at all.
    We've used this machine with full cotton loads and no problems.
    I've used it with delicates, including lycra cycling gear and running gear and it's all come out clean.

    Fantastic product. Very quiet (once you have remembered to remove the transit bolts). It quietly churns away with minimum fuss. Nice display and sounds. Washing doesn't feel like a chore or a bore. Love it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars insider information 11 Nov 2011
    LG F1256QD 1200rpm 7kg Direct Drive Washing Machine White I am a washing machine engeneer with 40 years experience. over the years like most engeneers i have noticed the quality of appliances getting poorer with every new model produced
    about 6 years ago i started geting calls to L G washing machines and noticed that the calls where mostly minor problems like hair grips or coins stuck in the filter or pump (things that you could not blame the machine for ) even on 6 or 7 year old machines major faults are verry rare.i have often looked at machines in the dealers showrooms and realised that the basic designe has not changed since the 1960s and somone should come up with something better.
    well lg have done it with the direct drive motor ,no belt, no motor brushes,and wonderfull LG electronics you cant go wrong.
    Lg dont compete with the cheep rubish merchants, they sell good machines at a reasonable price. P S Ive got one

    By warrior
    Before purchasing this machine, I read previous reviews and was a little concerned about one which stated the spin wasn't great. It's brilliant and I can only presume the comment was based on a delicate programme when the spin shouldn't be too intense. I love this machine, it's quietness, price and flexibility of programmes.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and quite 27 May 2011
    This is an excellent washing machine. You simply put the washing in and close the door, then move the large control to the wash setting (it simply clicks round) and it doesn't move around like old washers used to do. The two buttons on the side set the spin speed and temp. You put your powder in and you press start! The machince calculates your load and displays the time on a typical cotton wash it will take around 1.10 to 1.20 hours to complete. It buzzers off when finishes and says "end".
    Just make certain that if you have a wooden floor that you have it level and secure as the 1200 speed will really shake things.
    It's very quite, most of the noise being the water rushing in!
    I would recomend it.

    We'd had two Zanussi washing machines in succession.Both had given us approx five years of heavy use,three washes a day,every day.Both were changed because of noisy bearings and it being more economical to replace than fix.LG was our choice,this time, because of the two year warranty and the level of noise promised,very quiet.Upon delivery,you have to remove four transit bolts,not easy and manoeuvre the machine into situ.Again,not easy as it's a fairly weighty machine.There was a new hose supplied which i initially ignored.The machine seemed solid enough and we put it to the test.I had a leak which was solved by fitting the new hose supplied,the one i had initially ignored.My error, not the machine.Secondly the machine bounced around on Spin.Though the machine had appeared solidly in place,the feet weren't tight and i solved this using the spanner provided.The Product is made in China and feels well made.Once we had ironed out the initial minor issues,the machine was reasonably quiet but not whisper quiet as some reviewers would have you believe.Washing comes out clean,a pre-requisite, and the cycle time counts down so you know how long a wash will take.There is a "Delay start" button that allows a delayed start of between 3.hours and over 19 hours.You can alter spin speeds and temperature as you would expect.At the end of each cycle,the machine switches itself off,not onto standby,in order to save electricity.Fair value for a machine of this Spec,in my opinion,supported by a two year warranty and as with most things these days,the facility to register online and increase your warranty to five years for a hefty fee.
