Our test is based on the standard AS/NZS 2040:1998, and was completed using machines filled with 3.5kg loads.
Overall score includes:
Dirt removal (50%): Calculated according to a formula in the standard, which reduces the score in proportion to the variability of dirt removal over a range of test swatches in the wash load.
Water efficiency (10%): Based on the amount of water used in the whole cycle, per kg of clothes.
Rinse performance (20%): Based on the amount of detergent residues after rinsing.
Spin efficiency (10%): Calculated from the amount of water remaining (per kg) in the damp clothes.
Gentleness (10%): Calculated from the amount of wear on easily frayed squares of cloth.

I love my new washing machine! I felt a bit nervous as I had a sturdy and plain Maytag for 20 years The differences are significant. I have had the LG one week and have tried most of the programmes. My towels came out fluffy. The sheets were slightly tangled but not enough to be annoying. It is funky to look at and the see through lid is a novelty. A small load is just that. The Maytag 'small load' still had a highish water level. So far, I am very pleased with my choice.
No downsides so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.
