READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
wWARNING For your safety, the information in this manual must be
followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent
property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read
and obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word DANGER or WARNING.
These words mean:
w
wDANGER: Y ou can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t immediately follow instructions.
wWARNING: You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
wCAUTION: You may be slightly injured or cause damage to the product if you do not follow instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury,
and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
wWARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury when using
this appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following.
• Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as
described in this owner’s Manual.
• Before use, the washer must be properly installed as
described in this manual.
•Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline,
dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive
substances, as they give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
• Do not add gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other
flammable or explosive substances to the wash water.
These substances give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced
in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks
or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water
system has not been used for such a period, before using
the washer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water
flow from each for several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not
smoke or use an open flame during this time.
• Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the washer is
used near children.
• Before the washer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the lid to prevent children from climbing inside.
• Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed
to the weather or freezing temperatures.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Keep the area underneath and around your appliances free
of combustible materials (lint, paper, rags, etc.), gasoline,
chemicals and other flammable vapors and liquids.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or attempt
any servicing other than as described in this manual. We
strongly recommend that any service be performed by a
qualified individual.
• See Installation Instructions for grounding
requirements.
• ALWAYS follow the fabric care instructions
supplied by the garment manufacturer.
• Do not place items exposed to cooking oil in your washer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a
chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
• Use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static only as
recommended by the manufacturer.
• This washer is not designed for maritime use or for mobile
installations such as in RVs, aircraft, etc.
• Turn off the water taps and unplug the washer if the
machine is to be left for an extended period of time, such as
during vacations.
• Do not use to dry articles containing foam rubber or
similarly textured rubber-like materials.
• Packaging material can be dangerous for children. There is
a risk of suffocation! Keep all packaging from children.
• Always check the inside of the washer for foreign objects
before loading laundry. Keep the lid closed when not in use.
• Do not reach into the washer while parts are moving.

Bulky items should be placed as far down in the
wash basket as possible for optimal results.
Always place buoyant items at the bottom of the
wash basket.
The washer will automatically detect the load size.
Because of the high-efficiency wash system, the
water level may not completely cover the load.
•C
heck all pockets to make sure that they are empty.
Items such as clips, matches, pens, coins, and keys
can damage both your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks, and drawstrings to
prevent these items from snagging or tangling
on other clothes.
• Pretreat heavily stained areas for best results.
• Large items should not be more than half of the total
wash load.
• Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials
(waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.)
• The washer will not fill or operate with the lid open.
* IMPORTANT: Use the Bulky/Bedding cycle for large
or bulky items such as poly-filled jackets, comforters,

LOADING THE DISPENSER
Using the Liquid Bleach Dispenser
The bleach dispenser
automatically dilutes and
dispenses liquid chlorine
bleach at the proper time
in the wash cycle.
1 C
heck clothing care labels for special
instructions.
2 Measure liquid bleach carefully, following
instructions on the bottle.
• Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach
directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.
• Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach
dispenser. Do not place load items on top
of the bleach dispenser when loading and
unloading the washer.
• Avoid overfilling or splashing when adding
bleach to the dispenser. The maximum capacity
of the bleach dispenser is one cup of bleach
per wash cycle. Overfilling could result in
premature dispensing of bleach.
3 Before starting the washer, pour a premeasured amount of bleach directly into bleach
dispenser. If you prefer to use powdered
bleach, add it into the wash basket directly
before adding clothes.
NOTE: Please flush the bleach dispenser with water
after bleach use and then rinse out the residue by
use of Rinse & Spin cycle.
wWARNING: Do NOT mix chlorine
18
bleach with ammonia or acids, such as vinegar or
rust / scale remover.
Mixing chemicals like these can produce gas which
may cause death.
Put the manufacturer’s recommended amount of
undiluted liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach
dispenser. During the final portion of the wash cycle,
two sequential flushes of the dispenser put all the
bleach into the wash load and completely flush
the dispenser to eliminate the carryover of bleach
to a subsequent load. Any liquid remaining in the
bleach dispenser at the end of the cycle is water,
not bleach.
To prevent unintentional self-siphoning of the bleach,
never fill the dispenser higher than the maximum fill
level marked on the dispenser.
When adding bleach to the dispenser, be careful
to avoid spilling it into the laundry load or leaving
droplets of bleach around the dispenser. These
things will damage your laundry items.
Main Wash Detergent Compartment
This compartment holds laundry detergent
for the main wash cycle, which is added to
the load at the beginning of the cycle.
Never exceed the detergent manufacturer’s
recommendations when adding detergent.
Using too much detergent can result in
detergent buildup in clothing and the washer.

nly 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
2
Press the POWER button to turn on the washer. Do not press any other buttons or turn the cycle
selector knob.
When instructed to do so by the call center, place the mouthpiece of your phone very close to the
POWER button.
Press and hold the COLD 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 center.
“SmartDiagnosis 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 SmartDiagnosis would accurately troubleshoot any given
issue.”
