This booklet is divided into 2 parts : Warning and Caution. : This is a warning sign specifying user’s applications which might be dangerous. : This is a sign specifying ‘Strictly Forbidden’ applications. Warning : Failure to comply with the instructions under this sign may result in major physical injuries or death. Caution WATER HEATER SAFETY PROPER INSTALLATION : Failure to comply with the instructions under this sign may result in minor physical injuries or damages to the product. Warning • Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been used for two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas can be explosive under these circumstances. If the HOT water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or injury by turning on all Hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do this before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the HOT water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process. Caution • The base opening must not be obstructed by carpeting when the washing machine is installed on a carpeted floor. • Install or store where it will not be exposed to temperatures below freezing or exposed to the weather. If the product is exposed to such conditions, electric shock, fire, break down or deformation may occur. • Properly ground washer to conform with all governing codes and ordinances. Follow details in Installation Instructions. If not grounded properly, break down and leakage of electricity may occur, which may cause electric shock. • Must be positioned so that the plug is accessible. If the plug is placed between the wall and the machine, it may get damaged, possibly causing fire or electric shock. • Make sure the plug is completely pushed into the outlet. Failure to do so may cause electric shock and fire due to overheating. 5 S afety Information Warning • Keep the area underneath and around your appliances free of combustible materials such as lint, paper, rags, chemical, etc. Operating with such materials around the machine may trigger explosion or fire. • Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is used by or near children.

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. 9 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. Before Starting to Wash U se of Water, Detergent, Bleach, Softener, Additives Before Starting to Wash 10 U se of Water, Detergent, Bleach, Softener, Additives 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. Before Starting to Wash Using the Dispenser Drawer Before Starting to Wash 12 U se of Water, Detergent, Bleach, Softener, Additives Adding Fabric Softener If desired, pour the recommended amount of liquid fabric softener into the left-hand compartment. Use only liquid fabric softener. 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. NOTE: Do not pour additives directly on the wash load. It may stain the clothes. 13 WARNING Do not use or mix liquid chlorine bleach with other household chemicals such as toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or products containing ammonia. These mixtures can produce dangerous fumes which can cause serious injury or death.
