LG DISHWASHER

The LG Dishwasher has a 10 year warranty statement for the Direct Drive on the front of the unit however it does not state that warranty is only valid in the country it is purchased. How can a multinational not take responsibility for its products worldwide in a day and age where people are relocating all around the world on a daily basis. The machine was originally 4 years old when I started trying to figure out how to submit a warranty claim but now my patience has been worn down and I will now purchase a new machine probably Siemans or Samsung. Cheers LG

That issue and complaint

Has been made to almost every manufacturer to date. You listed companies that don't have a national warranty on all their products. Also, you may not know why this is.

I worked in another country for a major manufacturer and at the time it was not a choice the maker could indulge in. The country's laws forbid it. Strange but true.

The warranty statement on the machine is misleading and should state that it is only available in the country of purchase. What is the actual purpose of buying a "global brand". I suppose there is also the possibility that all white goods could have similar masking software to that of VW so that the appliances expire 5 minutes after the warranty or when it detects a new timezone. Just saying.
