What is LG Inverter Direct Drive and 6 Motion Technology?
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.
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.
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.
Watch the video below of the post-installation demo by LG personnel (in Tagalog).
We got a very good deal from Anson’s Landmark Makati outlet.
We got this gorgeous machine for only ₱35,900 when almost everyone else was selling it for no less than ₱38,500!

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!
