Korean washing machines

Korean washing machinesA large number of manufacturers and brands of washing machines pose users with a difficult choice. Many people have a question, what brand of washing machine is more reliable and better.

In this article, we will talk about Korean-built cars, list their advantages and disadvantages, and review various models.

Advantages and disadvantages

Korean-made washing machines are very popular, because they are not that expensive, and in terms of functionality and implemented technologies they are not inferior to European-made machines.Machines with a large number of programs and functions are much cheaper than washers of the same class assembled in Europe. But not only the price is an advantage of such machines, they have a number of advantages:

  • direct drive, first introduced in Korean washing machines. Machines with an inverter motor without a belt drive are more reliable, have a guarantee of at least 10 years;
  • a large number of various programs;
  • simple operation and clear symbols on the panel;
  • convenient buttons and a large display;
  • in most cases, quality parts.

Note! Korean washing machines are assembled by automatic machines, unlike machines from Sweden and Germany, so they are inferior to them in reliability and quality, but they win in price.

As for the shortcomings, then without them there is no. Korean washing machines have their drawbacks, here is a list of them:

  • jamming of the lock lock of the hatch door;
  • unstable electronics;
  • branch pipes often break.

Brands of Korean cars

The most famous Korean brands: Samsung, LG and Daewoo. Korean washing machines Samsung assembly in our country are not found, since the assembly plant was opened in the Kaluga region, and therefore there is no need to bring equipment from South Korea. And this significantly affects the quality of the equipment, because even the components for the assembly are taken not by the Korean, but by the Chinese. It turns out that only the brand remained from the Korean in washing machines.

Note! You can buy a Korean-made washing machine in another country or in Korea itself, but it will cost significantly more.

The washing machines of the Korean brand LG are also very popular among Russian consumers; they are relatively inexpensive and of high quality. LG engineers were the first to use direct drive technology, which sets them apart from the competition. The manufacturer gives a 10 year warranty on its engines. According to user reviews such machines last about 8 years, and sometimes longer, without serious damage. In addition, they are easy to repair, components for them are easy to buy in the store. But just like Samsung cars, LG Korean cars cannot be found here. Almost all models are assembled in Russia and China.

No less well-known washing machines under the delirium of Daewoo, which means “Universe”. This is completely justified because the technology of this company is known all over the world. Washing machines are characterized by an optimal ratio of price and quality, original design (unusual pattern on the facade). And most importantly, cars from South Korea of ​​this brand can be purchased in our country, although there are models assembled in China.
