Why Has it Scored 84?

owners report that it has brilliant user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this washing machine to others. Looking across the entire Candy washing machine range, the average reviews for all Candy washing machines are also excellent.
Released by LG 5 months ago, it is one of the newest washing machines on the market, incorporating some of the latest washing machine features.

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each washing machine by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the washing machine is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec washing machines come to market, the older washing machines will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
