    Default planning to buy an lg direct drive washing machine - help

    hi all! this is my first post.

    i own a semi-auto machine presently and planning to upgrade to lg. is direct drive is just a marketing gimmick or it's worth paying the price? i've also heard that repairing the direct ones are costlier. i'm not bothered about noise. all i want to know are direct drives wash better and more gentle on clothes? are present models of non-direct fully auto machines harsh on clothes and do not wash clothes well? i've never owned a fully auto and have no idea. can anyone compare washing quality ( including harshness on clothes ) of direct vs non-direct?

    i also want to know is there any pipe for washer-dryer combo ( of lg ) which emits hot air like electric chimneys? even if it doesn't have any pipe does it still emits hot air through vents in the machine ( i mean - can i keep it in drawing room )?

    the model i'm planning to buy : lg F1280CDP2 washer-dryer combo

    thanks in advance.

    Direct drive makes less noise, vibrations, etc. Otherwise it has no impact on wash action. Tumble wash is better than top-loading/pulsator wash. It is also easier on the clothes. However, washing powder for front loaders is not that easily available - use low sud powder only for front loaders.

    If you live in an area where water is hard, the washing will be less efficient. But that applies to tumble wash or horizontal pulsator wash or hand wash.

    For washer-dryer combo, there must exhaust for hot air outside the home. Talk to the advisor.

    It is not recommended to install washing maching of any kind in living room. Best place is kitchen or near common sink.
