LG Professional Laundry Washing Machine Review

Professional SM LGIn laundries at restaurants, hotels and dry cleaners with an endless stream of dirty laundry, only professional washing machines can handle it. Unlike their "home" counterparts, they are more economical, more functional, more powerful and more reliable, designed for round-the-clock operation and huge loads. All in order for the business to function in full force. True, among the best models there are leaders, and in the laundry sector, LG professional washing machines occupy a special place. What are good LG units - we will consider in detail in our review.

How is a household machine different from a professional one?

Appearance and high price are far from the only parameters dividing washing machines into domestic, semi-professional and professional. The latter have a number of undeniable advantages, which differ from all others.

  1. Quality. The high quality of washing laundry units allows you to remove heavy dirt without pre-treatment or soaking.
  2. Strength. Direct-drive inverter motors and parts made of high-strength materials significantly increase the wear resistance of the machine. Thanks to this, professional models are designed for at least 30 thousand cycles, while semi-professional models are designed for 5 thousand, and household ones - less than 1000.
  3. Speed. Equipping laundry machines with several heating elements allows you to heat water faster and start the washing process. Also, the possibility of conveyor use without interruptions, an accelerated drain system and an enhanced drum rotation speed reduce the working time to 50 minutes instead of two hours in a household unit.
  4. Functional. Professionals have a digital control panel that controls the water level, washing time, spin quality and other washing parameters. In total, it is possible to install up to 200 different modes and programs.
  5. Warranty. In the contract of sale of non-domestic automatic machines, special attention is paid to technical and warranty service. So, in case of a breakdown, the industrial units are repaired by the manufacturer.
  6. Drum capacity The process of loading and unloading linen is also simplified due to the large size of the hatch, accommodating from 6 kg of dry linen.

The high cost of professional washing machines conceals great potential, allowing you to use machines around the clock in hospitals, laundries, restaurants and factories, without fear of breakdowns or poor-quality washing. Household models with such a load can not cope, therefore, are purchased only for home use.

Equipment Maintenance

When purchasing industrial washing equipment for laundries, it is important to understand that only a qualified specialist should deal with the diagnosis of their condition, replacement of parts or complex repairs. Moreover, each professional unit has an extended warranty period starting from one year, during which any malfunctions are eliminated only in the corresponding service departments. Independent attempts to establish the work of the machine will only aggravate the situation.

In general, the equipment for commercial use is made of high-strength materials, designed for a long service life and intense loads.

The need for repairs more often arises not due to factory defects and the excess of the number of maximum cycles, but due to other reasons.

  1. Improper handling of the machine.
  2. Power outages.
  3. Foreign objects getting inside the device.
  4. Incorrect installation and connection to the water supply system and mains.
  5. Substandard water.

The indicated factors negatively affect all units, but the resistance to them in professional species is higher due to a number of filters and a system of protection against leakage, overheating and short circuit. It is important to preliminarily study the recommendations for the operation of a professional machine, where there are nuances that are necessarily prescribed in the attached instructions. Do not neglect the services of a specialist in installation and connection, which will help to avoid unnecessary delays and malfunctions.

Installing a household washing machine in the laundry department of a hotel, restaurant or dry cleaning is a bad idea, the result of which will be time spent, wasted money and unreached laundry. For a successful and profitable business, the best thing is not to save, but to provide fast, high-quality and safe washing with professional LG automatic machines.
