What is LG Inverter Direct Drive and 6 Motion Technology?

Purchase

After much research about the LG FC1408D4W, we decided this was the washing machine for us.

We scoured the internet looking for the best deals for this exact brand and model. The cheapest offers we found were some offers on sites like Lazada, but for nothing less than ₱38,500.

We also looked around the malls nearby (Forum Robinsons and SM Light) but many were offering this machine for well over ₱40,000!

Then one day, we found ourselves inside Anson’s Landmark Makati outlet and we couldn’t believe our eyes when they offered this washing machine to us for only ₱35,000!

Plus, they even threw in a FREE 24-inch LG LED TV to sweeten the deal even more!

Anson’s Landmark Makati outlet also agreed to allow us to pay them only upon successful delivery of the item to our home, or COD.

What an amazing deal! We didn’t need to think things over – I just signed the papers and paid ₱340 to cover the delivery charge already.

Delivery

Anson’s Landmark Makati outlet promised us delivery of the washer-dryer on Friday, December 27, 2019 and delivered the item as promised.

I was expecting delays, due to the holidays around the date of delivery, but I was happy to be proven wrong.

Delivery charge was ₱340 to our place in Mandaluyong City.

Installation

We received delivery of the washer-dryer on Friday, December 27, 2019. The installation was scheduled for the next day. Installation took place as scheduled.

Installation of your LG washing machine is typically completed by LG personnel or authorized LG contractors. This is all arranged (should be arranged) by the merchant who sold you the machine.

There are no charges for the installation.

But in our case, our water supply faucet (from the wall) was the wrong kind, according to the LG staff installing our machine, and needed to be replaced. Cost us ₱560.

My thoughts about the LG FC1408D4W

I have only washed 3 loads since receiving this washing machine, so this review is not exactly a complete review yet. But as time goes by, I will add my thoughts and opinions about the washer-dryer here.

The one thing that strikes me immediately is just how quietly the machine runs. You need absolute quiet at home before you can hear the machine work its magic!

Hi Ms. Rexcel,

I just want to ask if this type of LG model dries the clothes 100%.

We live in a condo and unfortunateoy we dont have a space to hamg the clothes for drying.

Hopento hear from you. Thank you very much. 🙂

Dear Ms. Kim,

Yes, this machine will dry your clothes 100%. After drying, the clothes are so hot that we typically let the machine run (on “Cd”) for a while longer before we finally turn it off and empty the drum off clothes.

What is “Cd?”

A ‘CD’ display message indicates that the combo unit is in cool down mode. This is normal. When the drying cycle is complete, the ‘CD’ message displays. The cool down operation will periodically tumble the load with no heat to rearrange and fluff the clothing to avoid wrinkles for up to 4 hours. The cool down will continue until you either press any of the buttons to remove the clothes, or until 4 hours have passed.

Hi. I’m eyeing for this washer dryer because we also have limited space. Can you pls advise if this is a good buy? How long does it take for one cycle or washing and drying. Hope to hear from you. Thanks.

No, the laundry is ready (however, still very hot) as soon as the machine goes into “Cd” cycle. So the time I mentioned above does not include the Cd cycle. You may switch off the machine at any time when the Cd cycle is running. If you do not switch off the machine, then the Cd cycle can run for a maximum of 4 extra hours. What we typically do is let the machine run on the Cd cycle for 30 to 60 mins. just so the clothes are not too hot for us to handle.
