Why Has it Scored 78?

LG is an excellent washing machine brand.
At over a year old this washing machine is slightly out of date, and newer washing machines with more up to date technology are available.
It has running costs of $250 over 10 years, which puts it in the cheapest 1% of all 2,100+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
This washing machine has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a child lock
Quieter than average noise level
For small spaces with large loads<br>
A smarter way to wash<br>
Easily maintain & keep fresh<br>
Troubleshoot easy as 1-2-3<br>
Smaller than average drum capacity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each washing machine by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the washing machine is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec washing machines come to market, the older washing machines will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
