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.
Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle, Water Temperature and spin speed.
Sorting
To get the best results, different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
• SOIL (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
• COLOR (Whites, Lights, Darks) Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
• LINT (Lint producers, Collectors) Separate lint producers and lint collectors.
Lint Producers
Lint Collectors
Terry cloth, Chenille, Towels, Nappies
Synthetics, Corduroy, Permanent Press, Socks
Check before Loading
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Things such as nails, hairclips, matches,
pens, coins, and keys can damage both your washer and your clothes.
• Mend any torn garments or loose buttons. Tears or holes may become larger during washing.
• Remove belts, underwires, etc. to prevent damage to the machine or your clothes.
• Pretreat any dirt and stains.
• Make sure the clothes are washable in water.
• Check the washing instructions.
• Remove tissue in pockets.
WIRE
Pretreatment on stains or heavy soil
• Pretreat shirt collars and cuffs with a pre-wash product or liquid Detergent when placing them in the washer.
Before washing treat special stains with bar soaps, liquid Detergent or a paste of water and granular Detergent.
• Use a pretreat soil and stain remover.
Treat stains AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The longer they are left the harder they are to remove.
(For more detail refer to page13)
Loading
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Load Size
The WATER LEVEL should just cover the clothes. Adjust the load size
accordingly. Loosely load clothes no higher than the top row of holes in the
washer tub. To add items after washer has started, press Start button and
submerge additional items. Close the lid and press Start button again to restart.
WARNING
Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are
dampened with gasoline or other flammable
fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type
of oil on it (including cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Light and Large-sized clothing
Clothes like downs and woollens are light weight, large and float easily. Use a nylon net and
wash them in a small amount of water. If the laundry floats during the wash cycle, it may
become damaged. Use dissolved Detergent to prevent the Detergent from clumping.
Long laundry items
Use nylon nets for long, DELICATE items. For laundry with long strings or long length , a net will prevent
tangling during washing. Fasten zippers, hook, and strings to make sure that these items don't snag on other clothes.
Nylon net is not supplied by LG.

Using Water
Amount of WATER LEVEL
• This machine detects the quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the WATER
LEVEL and proper amount of Detergent.
• When you select a wash program, the WATER LEVEL and amount of Detergent
(to be used) will be shown on the control panel.
• The following table shows the amount of water.
• When the WATER LEVEL is automatically detected, it may differ depending on the
quantity of laundry even though the same WATER LEVEL is indicated on the control panel.
• The amount of a cup in the diagram is about 40g for concentrated Detergent.
Water Temperature
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash program .
• You can change the Water Temperature by pressing the WATER TEMP. button. (refer to page 14)
• The temperature of the water impacts the effectiveness of all laundry additives and therefore, the cleaning results.
We recommend temperatures of:
- HOT 49~60°C…(120-140˚F)
White items, diapers, underclothing and heavily soiled, colorfast items.
- WARM 29~40°C…(85-105˚F)
Most items
- COLD* 18~24°C…(65-75˚F)
Only very bright colors with light soil.
• When washing in COLD water additional steps may be needed:
- Adjust Detergent amount and pre-dissolve Detergent in WARM water
- Pretreat spots and stains
- Soak heavily soiled items
- Use appropriate bleach
* Temperature below 18°C…(65˚F) will not activate laundry additives and may cause lint, residue, poor cleaning, etc.
In addition, Detergent manufactures and care labels define COLD water as 26~29°C…(80-85˚F).
If the temperature of the water in the tub is too cold for your hands, the Detergent will not activate and clean
effectively.
Attention
If iron is present in the water the clothes may become an all-over yellow or they may be stained with brown
or orange spots or streaks. Iron is not always visible. Installation of water softener or an iron filter may be
necessary for severe cases.
Using Detergent
Detergent
Follow the Detergent package directions. Using too little Detergent is a common cause of laundry problems.
Use more Detergent if you have hard water, large loads, greasy or oily soils or lower Water Temperature.
Choosing the right Detergent
We recommend the use of domestic Detergent, (powder, liquid or concentrated). Soap flakes or
granulated soap powders should not be used in your washing machine. When washing woolens
remember to use Detergent suitable for washing woolens.
11
How much Detergent
When you select a wash program the WATER LEVEL and the amount of Detergent (to be used) will be
shown on the control panel. The amount of a cup in the diagram is about 40g for concentrated Detergent.
The correct amount of Detergent will vary depending on the amount of soil in your clothes (Jeans and work
cloches may need more Detergent, while bath towels usually need less.).
For liquid and concentrated Detergents, follow the recommendations of the Detergent manufacturer.
Note: To check you are using the correct amount of Detergent, lift the lid of your machine about halfway through the wash. There should be a thin layer of foam over the surface of the water. Lots of
foam may look good, but it does not contribute to cleaning your clothes. No foam means not enough
Detergent has been used; soil and lint can settle back on the clothes or the washing machine.
If excess Detergent is used, the rinse will not be as clean and efficient. Also, it could cause
environmental pollution, so use it accordingly.
Adding the Detergent

Check the instructions on the Detergent packet.
If you use powdered Detergent it is essential that the required amount be fully dissolved in very HOT water
before being added to WARM or HOT water for the actual wash.
Pre-dissolving Detergent in WARM water when washing in COLD water can improve its performance.
Using Liquid Bleach
• Check clothing care label for special instructions and separate the
laundry to be bleached
• Dilute liquid chlorine bleach.
• Measure the recommended amount of liquid bleach carefully
following instructions on the bottle.
• Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of bleach directly
into bleach dispenser. Avoid splashing or overfilling. Powdered
bleach should be mixed with water before pouring.

Attention
■ Never pour undiluted liquid bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.
This may cause change of color or damage the laundry.
■ Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing can reduce
a toxic gas which may cause death.
■ Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.

U
se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Fabric Softener
• Dilute fabric softener with water.
Undiluted fabric softener may result in spots that look like oil
stains.
• Measure and add the recommended amount of fabric softener
into the compartment marked with this symbol( ).
Follow manufacturer’s direction.
Softener dispenser (
)
or
Fabric softener is automatically dispensed in the final rinse
with indication beep.
If you want EXTRA RINSE, you must add fabric
softener manually when indication beep rings in the final
rinse. This maximize the fabric softener function.
• Do not overfill. The dispenser hold max 35mL.
Never add more than 35mL.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of the fabric softener
which could result in stained clothes. A cup with a pouring spout will help you avoid spilling.
• The effect of adding fabric softener may vary according to its viscosity. The stickier fabric softener makes its
effect the lower. For a sticky fabric softener it is recommended that it be diluted with water, then be manually
put during the time when the washer beeps several times before the final rinse. This function informing
correct time to dispense manually is optionally applied to some models. Please keep it in mind that fabric
softener has to be diluted with water before dispensed and never poured directly on clothes.
Attention
■ Do not mix with Detergent or bleach.
■ Never pour fabric softener directly on clothes. It may stain them.
■ Do not stop the washer during the first spin for timely dispensing.
■ Option washing is not designed to be used with fabric softener dispenser.
