ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics continues to receive accolades in the home appliance category, scoring the number one spot in a customer satisfaction survey among home appliance brands, according to a report just released by the American Customer Satisfaction Index® (ACSI). The findings come from ACSI's second-quarter surveys of randomly chosen customers who are asked to evaluate their experiences with recently purchased household appliances.
LG's top customer satisfaction ranking comes on the heels of LG's front-load washing machines being named the most reliable among all major appliance brands by a leading U.S. consumer publication. In the top-load washer category, LG also achieved the highest ranking (based on criteria including washing performance, water and energy efficiency and capacity) with its MEGA Capacity TurboWash™ steam washer (Model LG WT5680HVA).
"LG brings ground-breaking innovations to the market that not only outperform competitor brands but offer technologies that are first-to-market, making consumers' lives easier than they ever thought possible," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA. "The ACSI survey is proof that our mission to be at the forefront of innovation and design is paying off and making an impact in households across America."
LG has a long history of innovation in the laundry category. Since its debut, the LG TWINWash™ with SideKick™ has garnered seven industry awards and accolades from leading industry organizations and consumer lifestyle and technology experts. With the LG TWINWash, users can wash two loads of laundry at the same time, utilizing the mini-washer in the pedestal as an additional washing machine placed beneath the LG front-load washer. The LG SideKick pedestal washer is specifically designed to wash small, custom-care laundry loads; its compact size is perfect for special care items, including intimates, delicates and active wear.
Other innovations that make LG laundry solutions best-in-class include:
- TurboWash Technology: Powerful high-pressure nozzles save 30 minutes per load*.
- Steam Cleaning: LG's steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to help eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.
- StainCare™: This option uses multiple temperatures to attack different types of stains in one wash cycle.
- ColdWash™: This feature uses less warm water, along with innovative wash motions, to deliver warm-water performance and cold-water savings on utility bills.
According to TraQline™ sales data, LG is the number one front-load brand in the U.S. for its 10th consecutive year**.
LG washers are second to none in earning the coveted "ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2016" designation (for clothes washers larger than 2.5 cubic feet) from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, LG has the only large-capacity top-load washer model to achieve this recognition, along with three super-efficient front-load models.
