With the LG F4J5TN3W, buyers get an 8kg washing machine that provides good performance and reliability. It would be hard to find a model that offers this many options for the price, and it comes with a range of features that enhance the washing capabilities of this washer. It is also exceptionally efficient, with an estimated annual operating cost of £20.33.
As an 8kg washer, this model should work well for most medium sized families. You can fit a lot of laundry in for one load, and it has a wide opening for easy loading and unloading. Along with that, this model also comes with a nice selection of programmes that can be used for a wide range of different laundry jobs.
The cleaning capabilities from the LG washing machine are among the best for 8kg washers in this price range. It has LG’s 6-motion Direct Drive drum. With this feature, the washer uses a combination of six different motions depending on the cycle that is selected. This provides better washing and it ensures good fabric care. In addition to that, it has load size detection for automatically adjusting operation based on the size of the load.
One way that this machine really stands out is with the variety of programme options that are available. The F4J5TN3W comes with fourteen programme options right from the start, but you can also use a Smartphone app to download new programmes for an expanded selection. For programmes that come with the machine, you have options like cottons and cotton+, sportswear, baby, hygiene, duvet, gentle, easy care, stain and quick wash.
Every programme provides exceptional results, and this model also comes with a good range of features that can adjust and alter the operation of the cycles. You have a time saver for speeding up the cycles, and this machine also has a delay start timer. Users can add an extra rinse to the cycles, select the crease care option, you can add a pre-wash and it has an intensive wash feature.
For the most part, this is a great washing machine, but there are some points that could be better. To start, this machine is a little complicated. Using all of the basic features is simple enough, but you will need a little bit of time with the instructions to figure everything out. As another point, the eco programme for cottons (cottons+) takes a little over four hours to run a half load, and if you want to run a full load on eco, it will take about six hours.
Build quality is another one of the ways that this LG washing machine offers a good value. The machine is built well and it is easy to maintain. It has an automatic tub wash feature, and you can also use a Smartphone app to troubleshoot common problems. Beyond that, it also comes with a 10-year warranty on the motor.
