• Oil-affected items which have been spotted or soaked with vegetable of cooking oil can
ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble
dryer. The items become warm, causing 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
Safety Instructions
• Items that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil, acetone, alcohol,
petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes ,wax removers and hair care products
should be washed in hot water with an extra amount of detergent before being dried in
the tumble dryer. This will reduce, but not eliminate the hazard.
Not doing so may cause spontaneous combustion leading to an explosion and
• Items made of foam, rubber, plastic, or other heat-sensitive fabrics (such as bathroom
rugs, nonslip mats or raincoats) must not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.

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.
Installation Instructions
The following instructions will guide you through the initial steps of setting up your dryer.
Please note that every section of this manual provides important information regarding the
preparation and use of your dryer, and it is important that you review this entire manual
before proceeding with any installation or use. Be sure to observe all listed warnings and
cautions. These installation instructions are intended for use by qualified installers. Read
these installation instructions completely and carefully.
Safety Information
Risk of Injury
The dryer is very heavy so you shouldn’t
try to lift it alone.
Do not lift the dryer by grasping any of the
protruding parts, e.g. the jog dial or the
door, they may break off.
Risk of Falling or Tripping Up
Ensure there are no loose hoses or
Check the dryer for damage that may
have occurred during transportation.
Do not connect the dryer if it has visible
signs of damage.
If you are not confident, contact your local
LG agent. Always empty the dryer
completely before transporting it.
Your dryer should not be located near to a
gas hob, cooker, heater or grill, as flames
from the burners could damage your dryer.
If you use this dryer near or stacked on top
of your washing machine, separate main
plugs and sockets must be used for each
appliance. Do not use a 2-way adaptor or
extension lead.
You can stack the dryer on top of your
washing machine to save space. A stacking
kit is available from your local appliance
specialist. The stacking kit provided (some
models only) is suitable for LG Front load
washers only.
■ Stacking Installation Instructions
Your LG dryer can be placed on top of a front loading washing machine and securely fixed
with a stacking kit (see following page for instructions). This installation must be conducted
by an experienced installer to ensure it has been installed correctly.
An installer will ensure you have the correct stacking kit for your model of washing
machine and will ensure it is firmly fixed. For these reasons, expert fitting is essential.
CAUTION Concerning the power cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon a dedicated circuit; that is, a single
outlet circuit which powers only that appliance and has no additional outlets or branch
circuits. Check the specification page of this owner's manual to be certain.
Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets, loose or damaged wall outlets,
frayed power cords are dangerous. Any of these could result in and electric shock or
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical abuse, such as being twisted,
kinked, trapped in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets,
and the point where the cord exits the appliance.
Installation Instructions

the same.
Installation Instructions
Earthing Instructions
This appliance must be earthed. In the
event of malfunction or breakdown, earthing
will reduce the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance for the
electric current.
This appliance is equipped with an earthed
cord and an earthing plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and earthed in
accordance with local standards.
Additional Grounding Procedure
Some countries may require a separate
ground. In such cases, the required
accessory ground wire, clamp and screw
must be purchased separately.
Condensed Water Drain
This appliance can be plumbed directly into
the mains waste with the adaptor supplied.
Condensed water will drain away. A
plumber will be required.
The dryer should not be installed next to
a refrigeration appliance.
Do not install the Heat Pump dryer
next to an appliance such as a
refrigerator, oven or stove etc. which
can cause poor drying performance
and programme duration, and
adversely affect the proper
functioning of the compressor. The
Heat Pump dryer performs best at a
room temperature of 23°C
- For better drying performance,
please keep the rear of product
away from wall.
- Do not install the dryer where there
is a risk of frost or dust.
• The tumble dryer may not be able
to operate properly or may be
damaged by freezing of condensed
water in the pump and drain hose.
Avoid installing the product around a
heat source.
The rear side of the dryer must be well
If not, this may cause a malfunction.
Installation Instructions
■ Level the Dryer
