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)
• COLOR (Whites, Lights, Darks)
• LINT (Lint producers, Collectors)
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
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.
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 page 13)
Loading
WARNING
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Load Size
Fire Hazard
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/PAUSE” button
and submerge additional items. Close the lid and press “START/PAUSE” button
again to restart.
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.
Do not wash water-proof textilles (Suckling outfit, baby's nappy automobile seat covers.)
Long laundry items
Use nylon nets for long, DELICATES 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 proper amount of water.
Water Temperature
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash program .
You can change the Water Temperature by pressing the WASH/RINSE button.
• 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) 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.
Note
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 drum type, low suding, high efficiency 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.
Using the Liquid Bleach Dispenser
The bleach dispenser automatically dilutes and dispenses
liquid chlorine bleach at the proper time in the wash cycle.
1. Check 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.
• 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 early dispensing of bleach.
3. Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of
bleach directly into bleach dispenser. If you prefer to use
powdered bleach, add it into the wash basket directly before
adding clothes.
WARNING!
Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar
and/or rust remover. Mixing can produce a toxic gas which may cause death
The manufacturer's recommended amount of undiluted bleach goes into the bleach dispenser. During the
final "Infusor" wash action the bleach is added to the wash load. This ensures performance won't be
diminished. Two sequential flushe through the bleach dispenser completely removes the bleach from the
dispenser. Any residual liquid left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle is water, not bleach. To prevent
self-siphoning of the bleach into the wash basket and damage to your clothes, never add more than the
maximum fill level marked on the dispenser.
Also keep clothes away from the bleach dispenser so they don't absorb any bleach droplets left around the
bleach dispenser.
11
The dispenser drawer contains three compartments:
• Liquid Fabric Softener
• Powder Detergent
• Liquid Wash Boost Additives
The dispenser automatically dispenses additives at the proper
time in the wash cycle.
1. Slowly open the dispenser drawer by pulling the drawer out until
it stops.
2. After adding laundry products, slowly close the dispenser drawer.
Closing the drawer too quickly could result in early dispensing of
additives.
• Avoid overfilling or splashing when adding laundry products to
the dispenser. Doing so could result in early dispensing of
aundry products.
At the end of the cycle, you may see water in the compartments.
This is part of the normal operation of the washer.
NOTE: Do not use bleach in the dispenser drawer.
Adding Detergent
Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the
dispenser drawer.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
Detergent is flushed through the dispenser at the beginning
of the wash phase. Either powdered or liquid detergent can
be used.
Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water
temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of the load.
Avoid using too much detergent in your washer, as it can
lead to oversudsing and detergent residue being left on the
clothes.

Dilute with water to the maximum fill line.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of the fabric
which could stain clothes.
NOTE: Do not pour fabric softener directly on the wash
load. It may stain the clothes.
Adding Wash Boost Additives
The Wash Boost dispenser may be used to clean heavily
soiled or stained garments more efficiently.
Place the additives for the wash Boost setting in the righthand compartment.
Using the Soak cycle add soaking detergent in the righthand compartment.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line to avoid
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of soak additives,
which could result in damaged clothes.
