are before washing
Before the first washing
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash without clothing.
This will remove residues from the drum that may have been left during manufacturing.
Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your
garment and how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint
transfer can occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled
items with lightly soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Items such as nails, hair clip,
matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help shift dirt.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make
sure that these items don’t snag on other
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray)
and remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left
items in it for next wash cycle.

roubleshooting guide
• If the moisture inside the drum is not removed well after the use, it can cause odor or stains
(Mold). After using the washer, keep the door open until the moisture inside the drum dries up.
• Only use this feature when instructed to do so by the call center.
The transmission sounds similar to a fax machine, and so has no meaning except to the call center.
• SMARTDIAGNOSIS™ cannot be activated if the washer does not power up.
If this happens, then troubleshooting must be done without SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
If you experience problems with your washer, call to Customer Information Center.
Follow the call center agent's instructions, and do the following steps when requested:
1. Press the Power button to turn on the washer.
Do not press any other buttons or turn the cycle
selector knob.
2. When instructed to do so by the call center, place
the mouthpiece of your phone very close to the
Power button.
Max. 10 mm
3. Press and hold the “Temp.” button for three seconds, while holding the phone mouthpiece to the icon
or Power button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished.
This takes about 6 seconds, and the display will count down the time.
• For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted.
• If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again.
• Pressing the Power button during the transmission will shut off the SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
5. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the call
center agent, who will then be able to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis at the
call to Customer information center.
❋ Smart Diagnosis is a troubleshooting feature designed to assist, not replace, the traditional method of
troubleshooting through service calls. The effectiveness of this feature depends upon various factors,
including, but not limited to, the reception of the cellular phone being used for transmission, any
external noise that may be present during the transmission, and the acoustics of the room where the
machine is located. Accordingly, LG does not guarantee that Smart Diagnosis would accurately
troubleshoot any given issue.
