ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA was just awarded a record seven of 11 J.D. Power customer satisfaction awards in the kitchen and laundry appliance segments. According to J.D. Power, "LG received more 2017 customer satisfaction awards for Kitchen and Laundry Appliances than any other manufacturer." The recognition by J.D. Power dovetails with LG's rank as Number One home appliance brand in a U.S. consumer satisfaction survey among home appliance brands*, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index®.
In the comprehensive J.D. Power Kitchen and Laundry Appliance Satisfaction Study, LG home appliances performed particularly well in four important areas: performance and reliability; ease of use; features; and styling/appearance. The results reinforce LG's commitment to creating reliable innovations that deliver both form and function. LG ranked highest in the following highly competitive industry segments:
French door refrigerators
Top-mount freezer refrigerators
Dishwashers "The J.D. Power awards are one of the most prestigious accolades in the industry and these rankings further underscore LG's to providing best-in-class innovation with unrivaled reliability to our customers," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA. "As we look towards the future, one thing our customers can count on is that we will continue bringing them the most cutting-edge products in the market without ever sacrificing reliability or design."
Laundry Leading in the laundry category is LG TWINWash™, the industry's first two-in-one washer system. The traditional LG front-load washer with the LG SideKick™ pedestal washer enables consumers to tackle two loads of laundry at once or independently. Consumers can choose any LG front-load washer manufactured after 2009 and add an LG SideKick. The LG SideKick has six different wash cycles, allowing consumers the ability to pick the best cycle for their load and to keep their clothes looking like new.
In addition to the J.D. Power awards, LG was recently recognized for its reliability across key laundry product categories, according to a leading U.S. consumer products publication. Among top major appliance brands, LG achieved the highest reliability rankings in front-load washing machines and high-efficiency top-load washing machines, as well as in both electric and gas dryers.
Refrigerators LG French Door refrigerators include the award winning LG InstaView™ technology, which allows consumers to knock twice to illuminate the sleek glass Door-in-Door® panel, and see inside the refrigerator. LG Door-in-Door technology features a slim interior compartment within the main door that offers improved organization and quick, easy access to food and beverages without opening the entire refrigerator – helping reduce cold air loss. LG InstaView refrigerators come in a variety of configurations and finishes – including the smudge-resistant sleek black stainless steel.
Dishwashers The all-new LG QuadWash™ dishwashers puts maximum cleaning in motion with four spray arms instead of the traditional two arms. Its pioneering Multi-Motion arms sweep and rotate back and forth while spinning in both directions to clean dishes, glassware, flatware, and cookware from just about every angle. Consumers can comfortably load in espresso cups or large serving plates, as the EasyRack™ Plus system adjusts to just about any size of dishes, making loading easier.
Ranges Ensuring a more evenly cooked meal, LG's innovative ProBake Convection™ technology, typically found in commercial-grade ovens, moves the heating element from the bottom of the oven to the back wall. ProBake Convection technology delivers optimal heat distribution that provides consistent heating on the top and bottom of every dish. LG's EasyClean® technology makes it easy and quick to clean your oven in three steps and within 10 minutes. Additionally, LG's trademark brilliant blue oven enamel technology eliminates the need to use chemicals or high heat when cleaning your oven.
