• Do not install or store the washer where it will
be exposed to the weather.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the washer
or attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance
instructions or published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the skills to carry
• Keep the area underneath and around your
appliances free of combustible materials such as
lint, paper, rags, chemicals, etc.
• Close supervision is necessary if this appliance
is used by or near children or infirm persons.
Do not allow them to play on, with, or inside this
or any other appliance.
• Keep washer away from fire.
• Do not leave the washer door open.
An open door could entice children to hang on
the door or crawl inside the washer.
• Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait
until the drum has completely stopped.
• The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardant of fabrics.
• Do not wash or dry articles that have been
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as
wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry
cleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may
ignite or explode. Oil may remain in the tub after
a whole cycle resulting in fire during drying. So,
do not load oiled clothes.
• Always follow the fabric care instructions
supplied by the garment manufacturer.
• Do not slam the washer door closed or try to
force the door open when locked. This could
result in damage to the washer.
• To minimize the possibility of electric shock,
unplug this appliance from the power supply or
disconnect the washer at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
• Never attempt to operate this appliance if it is
damaged, malfunctioning, partially
disassembled, or has missing or broken parts,
including a damaged cord or plug.
• Dryer is intended for only drying textile material.
• If the washer has been exposed to water, call an
authorized service provider to avoid any risk of
fire or electric shock.
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk
of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with
a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinance.
• Do not use an adapter or otherwise defeat the grounding plug.
• If you don’t have the proper outlet, consult an electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it does not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
W arnings
To minimize the risk of fire in a tumble dryer, the following should be observed:
• Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire
hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat
sources Such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation
reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can
become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can
prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been
contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard. Washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard.
• Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances
should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include
acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some
brands), turpentine, waxes and was removers.
• Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly testured
rubber. like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate
the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during
drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not
be placed in a tumble dryer.
• Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and
rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
WARING - To avoid a fire
Do not wash clothes or items that have any contaminants of
flammable solvents or substances. Do not clean the product or
expose it to flammable substances.

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

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 slightly ajar until the moisture inside the drum
dries up. If there are small children, do not leave them unsupervised when near the washer.
Using Smart Diagnosis™
• 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.
• Smart Diagnosis™ cannot be activated if the washer does not power up.
If this happens, then troubleshooting must be done without Smart Diagnosis™.
If you experience problems with your washer, call to Customer Information Center.
Follow the call center consultant'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.
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.
