The device of the washing machine is an auto-machine
The device of the washing machine is much easier than it seems at first glance. Even a person far from technology will be able to disassemble, fix or replace an obsolete detail, but only after a detailed study of the entire structure. This applies not only to repair, but also to operation, because a clear understanding of the technical device will extend the service life of your favorite assistant, improve the quality of washing.
The operation of the unit begins with the supply of electricity through an interference filter on the control panel. According to the selected program, the panel gives commands, collects information from sensors. After the start of the cycle, the grease door is blocked, the water supply begins through the powder container into the tank, where it is heated with a heater.
As soon as the water level becomes optimal, the relay closes, active washing begins. The engine enters the work, which sets the drum in motion using a belt or direct transmission. A tachogenrator is located on the motor shaft, it measures the speed of rotation during washing and spinning. Water drain produces a special pump with a filter.
The principle of the arrangement of the washing machine-power supply is fundamentally different. It is only a container with an engine, where you need to independently fill the water of the desired temperature, drain through the hose, and manually squeeze.
There are models with an anneal centrifuge, a rotating drum or activator type. The semi.automatic is carried out only with vertical loading, the washing process can always be stopped and linen can be reported. Has a small weight, transportable.
What is the modern washing machine
Consider each detail separately. Regardless of the manufacturer, each unit is equipped with basic sensors and nodes, but their technical indicators may differ.
The structure of the washing machine
- Tank with a drum and a bearing knot.
- Water bay valve.
- Luke lock device.
- Direct or belt gear motor.
- Ten and thermal attewer.
- Filter drain.
- Shock absorbers and springs.
- Management module.
- Metal case.
- Dispenser for powder.
- Drill and flood hoses.
Tank and bearing knot
The tank is both plastic and stainless. Inside it is a pea drum with ribs. When rotating the ribs, the physical effect on the underwear is enhanced, they help to evenly distribute it before spinning. The tank is collapsible, fastened with bolts, and unlimited. The drum rotates due to the bearing, to which the shaft and the pulley are attached. The highest quality bearings are used by the company “Zanussi”. And the premium models “burning” are equipped with hatch backlight.
Vertical loading machines differ in the presence of doors in the drum for laying linen completely closed by the structure.
The valve is of different types, for one, two and three sections. The control unit supplies the voltage to the coil, the created electromagnetic field opens the valve. The stream falls alternately into each compartment of the dispenser for detergents according to the program.
Luke lock device
During operation, the loading hatch fixes the lock based on a metal plate or magnets. In the first case, the castle contains a thermo element, it heats the plate that expands, changes the shape, fixing the door. The contact closes, the control unit receives a signal and starts the water supply. The castle on electromagnets works due to the magnetic field.
Direct or belt gear motor
The engine rotates the drum and is the heart of the unit. Most often use collector and bastard engines. The collector engine is installed in the lower part of the machine and is connected to the belt drum. The belt is attached to the shaft of the motor and the pulp of the drum.
Beskilateen engines are attached directly to the tank from the side of the posterior wall, this reduces the vibration and size of the unit. Models with direct drive are produced by LG. It is impossible to repair this technique on your own, although the manufacturer’s guarantee on the motor is 10 years.
This sensor measures the speed of rotation at the time of washing and spinning. Located on the engine shaft in the form of a ring with two wires, using a magnetic field measures the created voltage during its rotation. Connected to the control panel, allows you to smoothly increase speeds, follow the given program.
The part measures the water level in the tank. Water pressure on a special air chamber informs the sensor its level, closing the relay. The press startup looks like a flat.shaped box with wires, installed in the upper part of the case closer to one of the walls.
The heating heat heats the water to the selected temperature, it is installed in the lower part of the tank and is regulated. Often covered with lime coating, fails. “Samsung” makes the heater covering with ceramic to protect against corrosion and plaque.
There are two types of thermostat: thermostat and thermistor. Thermostats were used in old models, they are also divided into bimetallic and gas.filled. The principle of operation of the bimetallic sensor is similar to the lock of the loading hatch, the plate, in contact with the liquid, is bended according to the temperature and closes the relay. The gas.filled meter is connected by a tube to the control panel, namely with a temperature regulator. Freon flies into the tube, when heated, it expands, closes the contact of the regulator. Termistor. a more reliable meter. He calculates the resistance during heating.
The part pumps water throughout the cycle, is equipped with a filter for independent cleaning on the front of the case. The motor is usually rotary asynchronous low power. expensive models are equipped not only by drain, but also by a circulation pump. The plot of the drain pump triggers in motion of the blades, fixed on its axis perpendicular. Any blockage in the form of a button or coins can disable the pump, it is recommended to clean the filter as often as possible.
To extinguish vibrations from rotation at high speeds, the tank is suspended on the springs, compensated by two shock absorbers attached to the side wall. The shock absorber is a piston included in the cylinder. If there is no return spring in the cylinder, such a part is called a damper. The service life of the belt transmission and bearing depends on the serviceability of the shock absorbers.
How it is arranged and what does it consist of?
The drum is a stainless container with many holes. Directly in the drum is laid when washing, through a hatch located on one side side. On the other side of the drum is a thread shaft connecting it to the motor.
Inside the drum there are plastic ribs called boynia. They help to better mix underwear during washing and wash off pollution. The boynet is most often made of plastic and is hollow inside. In some models of washing devices, these bulkheads have holes.
Tank is a tank located around the drum. From it, water and detergent in the process of washing enter the drum. Unlike a drum made only of stainless steel, the tank can be made of iron and plastic.
The design of the tank is most often collapsible, consisting of 2 halves, interconnected. Less commonly, the tank body can be solid.
The drum is located inside the tank and is connected to it through the pulley. The tank is kept inside the case of the machine using special locks made in the form of springs.
Regardless of the manufacturer, the tank of any machine can be made only from a sheet of stainless steel.
It is no coincidence that this material is durable and is not subject to corrosion for this.
The inner surface of the drum has many small holes called peoration. With their help, water and powder are poured into the drum and poured out of it. But at the same time, it is these holes that lead to abrasion and spoilage of fibers of fabric during washing. Когда идет отжим белья, особенно на высоких оборотах, ткань с силой вжимается в эти отверстия.
Therefore, manufacturers will constantly improve the structure of the drum, as well as the scheme of its rotation, so that the laundry is less worn out. All new items in the development of new drum designs are aimed at ensuring that the fabric in the process of washing and squeezing is as little as possible in contact with the penetration.
Among the most common, some types of drums are distinguished.
- Poration drums. The drum of cheaper models has a flat surface, on which there are many holes. The inner side has no bulges, so in such models, things during washing are subject to faster wear.
- Drip drums. For the first time, this technology was invented by Bosch designers. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that the entire inner side of the drum is strewn with holes in the form of drops. On the one hand, the droplets have a gentle shape, and on the other hand they protrude more inside. And in different directions when rotating the drum of linen, depending on the washing mode, the more sloping part of these protrusions, or more acute.
- “Pearls” drums. There are many hemispheres on their surface, resembling a scattering of pearls of different sizes. The essence of this idea is to protect linen from contact with holes as much as possible and provide more careful care.
- Cello drums. The drum in which the inside is made in the form of convex hexagons resembling bee honeycombs, is an innovation. The advantage of cellular drums is that the convex hexagons fully protect linen from contact with holes. As for the holes themselves, in a similar design they are very small. Small holes allow you to maintain a soap solution inside longer, and also do not allow extraneous objects to get into the tank and damage it.
Therefore, if the buyer thinks about a more careful attitude to things during washing, then preference should be given to those models where the drum has not a smooth, but a convex surface.
Types of manufacturing
The car of the machine, unlike the drum, from different manufacturers may differ in the manufacturing material. Each type of tank has its advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, when choosing a model equipped with a tank from a particular material, you need to take into account the features of each of them.
From stainless steel
Stainless steel tanks are considered the most durable, since they are least subject to corrosion and mechanical damage. The disadvantages of such tanks include a loud noise, published in contact with it of the drum during washing. Therefore, if it is planned to wash underwear at night or there are small children, preference should be given to the model where the tank is made of modern polymeric materials.
Embolled metal tanks have the same disadvantages as stainless tanks associated with their noisy work. In addition, enameled tanks have a large weight, which weights the entire design of the machine.
From the polymers
A tank made of modern alloys is present in most models. Plastic has less weight compared to metal. Its main advantage is a low level of noise in the process. As well as the plastic tank retains heat longer, so the energy spent on water heating in machines with a plastic tank will be spent less.
The disadvantage of a tank of alloy is the possibility of damage to a sharp object that fell out of clothing during washing. In the case of a puncture of the tank, it will have to be replaced with a new.
When choosing, it is worth considering the fact that tanks are solid or consisting of 2 halves. The advantage of seamless structures is protruding from leaks. But in case of damage to such a tank, it will not be possible to extract the drum from it. Therefore, you will need to replace the entire structure.
Prefabricated tanks are more prone to leaks. If the insulating gum installed at the junction will be damaged, the water will be able to get into the insides of the machine and damage them.
But if such a tank is damaged, you can disassemble and replace. The drum replacement in this case does not need.
We continue to remove the lower panel
On LG washing machines, it is best to remove and lower. This is done very, very simple: just pick up the panel with your hand, open the latches with a screwdriver with a flat slot, and then remove the panel. No difficulties with removing the lower cover should not arise.
Before proceeding to the very process of dismantling the upper control panel, we need to access the screws that fasten it. One of them is under the tray where the powder falls asleep.
Therefore, first of all with a light movement of the hand and pressing a special button (there are always a button on LG cars in recent years that allows you to easily remove the tray), the tray is removed from the usual place.
Another or two screws are on the opposite side, but we already have access to them, because even in the first step we removed the upper cover, and therefore, without thinking for a second, is taken for dismantling the upper control panel, unscrewing the screws. Having unscrewed all the screws, try to pull the panel slightly on yourself: if this has succeeded, then you can safely remove the panel, because nothing holds it.
Depending on the machine model, the control panel can either be suspended on a service hook specially prepared by the manufacturer for such cases, or just gently put it to the side without cutting off the wires: do not forget that we do not break the washing machine, but try to do something to “heal” her.
We remove the front wall
It was time to remove the front wall, which had long looked at us with its sad glass gaze and asked not to take it off. We will not listen to the pleas of modest components: the need is a need.
But in order to dismantle the front wall, you must first disconnect the cuff (an elastic band located immediately outside the door) so that it stops blocking the panel. Removing the cuff is not a complex process: it is enough to feel the spring that holds the cuff, and put it on it as the cuff will immediately weaken, and it can be removed in the tank so that it does not get lost so that it will not be lost.
Now, by the way, you can proceed to the very process of removing the front wall. First, screws are unscrewed, connecting the front panel to the upper, and, accordingly, they are at the top. The number of screws is usually 3-4 pieces, nothing more.
By unscrewing them, the front panel can be lifted: it holds on hooks, in other words, hangs. Most likely, the first time it will not be possible. A tank lock that does not allow the door to open at the most inopportune moment during operation will interfere. It must be disconnected. On many models of LG washing machines, this is done with a simple locking of a lock from the groove even before the front panel is removed.
How to enable self.cleaning?
This is easily done: in some models due to only pressing the buttons, in others. you have to hold them. But the rest of the points, in fact, the same.
- At first, the space inside the drum is being examined so that there are no things in the typewriter.
- Close the door and open access to water.
- Turn on the machine by pressing the “Start”.
- Next, either hold the button for 3 seconds where the star is drawn, and start, or program first washing, then the main. At the same time, the revolutions are set no more than 150 per minute, and the heating of water is within 60 degrees.
- At the end, you can still install double rinsing and program the maximum speed on the spin.
The entire cleaning process lasts 95 minutes. In this mode, run the “automatic” at least several times a month: with a preventive purpose and one such “idle” scroll is enough, but to maintain cleanliness-2-3 times.
This procedure is harmless to the mechanism, wash sand and dirt particles, remove villi, hairs, unpleasant odor. And this time this time. excessive foam or soapy water can lead to stopping the machine.
After self-cleaning, the drum needs to be dried: leave the door open and for some time do not start the washing process.
What models have this function in?
Option “Drum cleaning” is not in all models of the brand. To help you choose the right option, we will talk about some LG washing machines.
- F1048nd. refers to narrow models, has 9 programs, including the “Fast Washing”, “Daily Washing” modes and 22 additional functions, including self.cleaning. Accommodates 6 kg of linen.
- F1280ND5. from the same series of narrow cars, the same amount of options, but only programs in it 14. Assistance of stylish silver color with buttons “Protection from children”, “Protection against leaks”. It is also designed for 6 kg, including the washing of down products within these limits.
- LG F1280NDS. also a narrow machine. In addition to conventional modes, it has a function of steam cleaning of clothing, as well as a hypoallergenic washing mode. Belongs to class A, which means: economical, consumes a little electricity.
All of the above LG models are collected in the territory and relate to the price of budgetary. Their average cost between 20,000 and 25,000
Consider the washing machines of the same brand of the middle price category with drying functions, steam regime and self.cleaning.
LG Washer Tub Drum Assembly Replacement AJQ74873908
- FH 2A8HDS4 is the maximum capacity of the unit 7 kg, although the model is compact, its price reaches 35,000
- F-14U2TDH1N is a full-size option that contains up to 8 kg of linen during washing, and with drying-not more than 5 kg. The machine is equipped with Smart diagnostics, has the function of cleaning the drum. It costs even more. 45,000
The drum in these models is adjusted to the technology of “6 movements of care”, which means that it is able to wash various types of fabrics, including in careful and gentle modes.
Separately, several more models with the cleaning mode can be distinguished:
- LG F-1296 ND3-this typewriter contains the “Intellectual Washing” program, the technology of mobile diagnostics can quickly identify and indicate in which place the malfunction was found;
- LG F1003NDP, LG F1203NDP and LG F-10B8ND with a direct drive system, which allows the engine to work silently, the warranty life of these machines is 10 years.
By the way, according to the manufacturers, the presence of such a regime on the cost of the “automatic” does not affect. The price is formed from other indicators: the number of functions and programs, the material of manufacture, the number of permitted kilograms of linen per laundry, dimensions and much more.
Of course, if possible, it is necessary to choose a technique with self.cleaning, timely inclusion of the desired mode will allow you to remove soap and partially lime plaque, mold, mud with the drum will be removed from the drum. But what to do if the machine is unable to clean the drum? Here you can apply other methods, including folk.
To collect the machine in the original appearance, you will need to go through all the instructions in the reverse order. If you used a camera and a video camera, then this will greatly simplify the assembly process. The procedure itself is not the most difficult, almost everywhere there are technical connectors and hoses of different sections, so to assemble the design somehow differently, and not as it was, it simply will not work.
When dismantling the upper panel, wires will interfere. In some models, the manufacturer provided for such an uncomfortable situation and made special hooks for attaching it during the repair time.
In certain models, instead of familiar collector engines, inverter models are used. They have a different appearance, and the dismantling process is slightly different from the collector, but in general everything is the same.
Before taking up the repair of the car with your own hands, it is necessary to clarify the cause of the malfunction. Understand that this or that detail has come out of the characteristic features.
The washing machine does not turn on
The reasons why the washing unit does not work after inclusion in the network, there may be several:
- Low voltage. According to GOST, its value on the network should be 200V, 10% deviation is allowed. Accordingly, when the voltage drops, the LV washing room simply will not start work.
- A socket, fork or power cord failed. To exclude this reason, it is enough to connect the device in another place and visually inspect the cable for insulation damage.
- The control unit is faulty. If the board has failed, the machine will not start even in the absence of external damage. A specialist who should be called if all other causes of the malfunctions have been excluded to be diagnosed.
In some cases, the washing machine does not start the washing process, while burning indicators talk about the availability of power. There may also be several reasons:
- The hatch is not closed through which the laundry is loaded.
- The engine burned. In this case, the device can gain water, however, the drum will remain motionless.
- There is no water, without which the device cannot start work.
Of course, before you panic, it is worth making sure that the device is included in the outlet and there is electricity in the room.
Does not get water
The reasons why the washing machine cannot gain water can be several:
- Cut in the intake filter. It is very simple to determine the malfunction: it is enough to unscrew the feed hose and inspect the metal mesh at the input. Sand, dirt and other inclusions can score it. To eliminate the blockage, it is enough to clean the net with a brush and rinse. The malfunction is associated with the low quality of water supplied and is more common in those cars that have to work in private houses.
- Low water pressure or its complete absence in the system. This can happen if the pipe completely or partially covers the crane. Sometimes low pressure is noted by owners of apartments on the upper floors (norm from 0.03 MPa to 0.6 MPa). In this case, the problem will have to be solved with the management company.
- Faulty inlet valve.
Repair of LG washing machines for replacing the final valve is carried out according to the following scheme:
- overlap water;
- dismantle the feed hose;
- unscrew the bolts on which the upper cover holds and remove it to gain access to internal components;
- tighten the clamps and disconnect the terminals;
- remove the valve and check the reels of the coil for the presence of resistance.
If there is resistance, then you can try to clean the valve yourself by removing the coils. If there is no resistance or the part is deformed, it is necessary to replace it with a new one, having done all the operations in the reverse order.
Does not drain water
If after the end of the washing cycle in the tank there remains water, then there are problems in the drain system. Possible causes of breakdown:
In case of sucker, extraneous objects (threads, hair and other garbage) can clog a filter, impeller of the pump, and in the most severe cases and the drain hose.
Zasor elimination begins with the cleaning of the filter. To do this, they throw the front panel and drain the water (through the drainage tube or opening the filter lid and substituting a flat dish). Unscrew the lid completely, remove the filter and wash it under a stream of water.
You should also unscrew and rinse under the pressure of the drain hose. Having put it in place, you need to make sure that he will not pour it anywhere.
Through the filter hole, you can inspect the impeller of the pump. To do this, check its integrity and crank with the help of an improvised tool. If the impeller is not tightened with garbage and fluctuates freely, you can make a trial launch of the car by putting the machine on the “Rinse and Supervisor” program. If the impeller is faulty or the problem is not in the blockage (the water still does not merge), then you will have to disassemble the pump.
Checking the pump malfunction
If measures to eliminate blockage did not help, then most likely the problem is in the pump. To replace it, you need:
- Disconnect the machine from the electric network and water supply.
- Turn the unit to the side and remove the lower plastic panel.
- Disconnect the pump from adjacent hoses and remove the terminals.
- Check visually the integrity of the part, the serviceability of the impeller, the presence or absence of the play, call the part by a multimeter.
- If damage is detected, replace the part with a new one, collecting the circuit in the reverse sequence, conduct a trial launch of the machine.
If the part is in good condition, but the machine still does not download water, perhaps the problem lies in the control board. She must transfer the command to the drain at a certain moment of work.
The drum does not spin
In LG washing machines, the drum is connected directly to the engine, so the most likely reason is such a malfunction. the failure of the Hall sensor, which is responsible for the speed of rotation of the motor. Fixing a breakdown in the LG washing machine with direct drive can be like this:
- Unscrew the drain and bulk hoses, remove the fork out of the outlet.
- Remove the mounting bolts holding the back wall, remove the panel, pulling it slightly the top;
- They twist the central bolt, holding the drum on the other hand to ensure the emphasis, remove the engine cover;
- Unscrew the bolts located in a circle and remove the stator, pulling on themselves;
- Disconnect the terminals and remove the Hall sensor, squeezing the fasteners holding it.
- Replacing the part with a similar one, collect the car in the reverse order.
The failure of the tachometer (Hall sensor) is evidenced not only by the stopping of the drum, but also by the characteristic crack that appears when the machine is launched in operation.
The washing machine does not push
This problem may have several reasons, starting from banal inattention and ending with completely serious breakdowns.
Before you engage in the diagnosis of the unit, you need:
- Make sure that the “without spin” mode is not set or the turnover has not decreased to 0.
- To make sure that the selected operating mode is going on with an annexation, for example, in the manual washing or “wool” program can only be provided by draining the water.
- Pay attention to the presence of an imbalance. If you put too much linen in the drum (for example, 6 kg instead of 5 kg of maximum load), it can be poorly distributed and stray. In an attempt to straighten things, the machine can hang at the push.up stage. Here you should unload the tank and re.start the machine.
Sometimes the reasons for the lack of spin are much more serious:
- A problem of the drain knot. In this case, the unit “gets stuck” even at the washing stage, the process simply does not reach the pressing.
- The press.start of the press. a sensor that controls the water level has failed. With a breakdown, it can give the control module the wrong signal about the high level of water, at which the device will not start the squeezer. If it has failed, water can be recruited continuously or vice versa, not in the tank. Replacing the sensor is very simple. it is located immediately under the top panel of the tank.
- The tachometer is faulty. In this case, the drum can rotate, but the number of revolutions will not correspond to the given.
- The electric motor or control module failed. These breakdowns are rarely found, it is quite difficult to eliminate them without resorting to the help of a specialist.
The listed details (except for the engine and the board) can be easily replaced by yourself.
Luke door does not open
Such a situation can happen for a number of reasons:
- There was water in the tank;
- The handle of the castle broke;
- There was a leakage of water and a protective lock worked;
- Included protection against children;
- an unplanned shutdown of electricity occurred and a temporary lock worked.
- Turn off the device from the network, drain the water through the drainage tube or filter. Wait half an hour.
- Try to open, if it did not work out. re.start the device to reboot the program.
If the proposed methods did not help, you can open the castle manually using the emergency cable (it has a bright yellow or orange color, located behind the rear panel) or squeeze it out by removing the upper panel.
The car is noisy
The most likely cause of noise is the wear of the bearings. You can replace them yourself, however, this process is quite time.consuming. Schematically, it looks as follows:
- Alternately remove the front, rear panel and lid to get full access to the device, remove the engine by unscrewing the fasteners.
- Disassemble the LG WD washing machine, having previously disconnected: nozzles (drain and water level sensor), filler valve, shock absorber fasteners, counterweights, wires.
- Disassemble the drum, carefully knock out the bearing, clean the seat.
- Apply grease, carefully clog the bearing, collect the structure.
Bearings that were not replaced in time can jam. The breakdown will disable the engine and lead to expensive repair.
The cause of the malfunction is a violation of the tightness of the device. Possible causes of leaks:
The exact place of the leak can be determined by visual inspection. It remains only to replace the worn detail with a new. The only exception is a cracked tank that can only be fixed in the service center.
The principle of operation of the washing machine
What is the washing machine doing? In fact, it floods the water inside the case, heats it and twists a drum filled with dirty laundry. This happens in a certain way, which ultimately leads to the cleaning of linen from pollution.
Now a little more. As soon as the washing program is launched, the first thing is the water supply valve opens. Water pours through the dispenser into the tank.
Typical for washing machines LG malfunctions, most often occurred during operation, are listed in the instructions for the unit
Important parts of the machine that you need to know:
- Dispenser. drawer for detergents.
- Buck. a plastic container in which the drum and heating element are located (Ten). Water is poured into it.
- Pressostat. he is a pressure relay. In washing machines monitors the level of water.
- Ten. tubular electric heater. Heat water.
Pressostat gives the goat to stop the supply of water as soon as the necessary volume is gained. Then the heater turns on. There is always a water temperature sensor near Ten (thermostat). As soon as he reports that the water was heated strictly to the desired temperature, the engine that rotates the drum comes into business.
Closer to the end of the washing, the pump begins to work. this is how the pump drain pump is most often called. It ends on the “production cycle” of the washing machine and the analysis of the typical malfunctions of the LG brand machines begins with it.

Common types of breakdowns
The nodes of the washing machine are electromechanical devices that move under the influence of current. They work under load, experience the effects of tap water and temperature changes.
- Electrosmes of the door;
- filling valve;
- temperature sensor;
- electric motor;
- revolution sensor (“Hall sensor”);
- drum bearings;
- water pump;
- electrician (wire connections);
- Seals and hoses.
If the machine has the functions of drying and steam processing, then several more points are added: a steam generator, air heater, fan, air temperature sensor.
The modern generation of washing machines is equipped with a direct drive. The engine in such systems fails much less often than other nodes
But the most popular causes of calls to service centers are the failure of the pump, heating element, the filling valve, press start, electricians and bearings.
In general, LG washing machines are very reliable and, compared with other common in stamps, break much less often.
Subtleties of choosing a lag brand
The Korean LG Electronics familiar to many has been producing high.quality household equipment for more than a decade. Its washing machines fully meet the stated quality markers, including reliability, ease of operation, creativity, affordable price.
We offer to figure out how to choose the optimal model of this manufacturer.
How LG differs from other manufacturers?
Oddly enough, but it is the humane price tag that confuses some customers in the first place. Is it hidden here what kind of catch? Maybe take a closer look at more expensive brands?
And the explanation is quite simple. LG Electronics does not bet on innovative startups, does not strive for absolute championship in the introduction of all kinds of innovations.
It is due to this that it is kept in the middle price “fork”, although the Tekhosnast of washing machines is magnificent.
The extensive difference in price allows you to choose both a basic budget option and a model with additional functionality and increased loading
The cost is also affected by the fact that all the products under the LG logo were produced within South Korea, now industrial capacities are transferred to a hundred other countries, including China and where labor is cheaper.
The likelihood that you will buy a Chinese washing machine or assembly, but this is almost not reflected in quality, and on the price. in a pleasant direction due to saving at production costs, including transport.
To focus on assortment more freely, you need to master the reading of a symbolic cipher.
For example, we will analyze the marking designation LG F1296WDSH, so from left to right:
- F (the letter immediately after the LG sign). a designation of the type of loading of linen (“f”, “m”, “e”. the front type);
- 12 (two digits). the speed with which the drum rotates when spin, for example, for 1000 rpm. 10;
- 96 (the following 2 digits). a version of the machine design, for example, the view of the front panel, etc.;
- W (letter). the capacity of the drum, depth (narrow, medium, standard), in the considered example standard;
- DS. several more letters. where “D” indicates the presence of a direct drive, “s”. steam washing, “n”. drying of the washed linen;
- The latter is the last (or absent). color (there is no number. white, 5. “silver”, etc.D.).
Cars from this manufacturer are erased economically, since their energy consumption is small even with the most difficult wash modes.
An example of marking. On it you can determine the main characteristics of the product. Marking, as a rule, is located in sight. right on the front panel
Pros and cons of LG techniques
The indisputable advantages of washing machine guns LG:
- rich assortment;
- management at the level of intuition, ease of use;
- Almost silent work. inverter engines with reduced noise formation are used;
- productive and effective functionality (washing programs);
- spin quality;
- purity of washed linen;
- affordable price.
LG Electronics also invests a certain work in the premium segment to develop high.tech households, the management of which is synchronized with a mobile phone, which will be discussed below in more detail.
But the main forces still go to improve the quality of the washing process not very expensive, but worthy of confidence in washing units.
The presence of a display in LG washing machines makes their use more convenient. A complex display device contributes to the rise in the cost of the model, and if finances limit your capabilities, you can choose a machine with a simple display
And here LG Electronics is constantly preparing useful surprises to the consumer:
- “Six Movements of Care”. a jerk forward in washing technology (another name. 6 Motion);
- EIU. electronic intellectual management of washing optimization;
- Hot steam. Samsung washing and popular Indesit models have no similar function;
- a drum cleaning system with antimicrobial treatment;
- stylish design;
- impeccable ergonomics.
Focusing attention on the advantages, it will not be unjust not mentioning the shortcomings. There are fewer of them, but nevertheless they are.
For example, although the company claims that all its products are high.quality, washing machines in factories in South Korea are more strict control, but finding a South Korean model on sale is almost not realistic.
