Ultra big Capacity Drum
The ultra big capacity drum on this LG dryer allows you to
dry more washing at once, saving time!
Lower Energy Consumption
LG Heat pump dryers use less energy than conventional dryers due
to optimized heat exchanger and self cleaning technology.
This LG Heat pump dryer has been designed to save your money.
Reduced Drying Times
Drying times are now shorter due to Hybrid heating system
and optimized heat exchanger on this LG dryer.
Reduced noise levels
We have reduced the operating noise of this LG dryer by using
innovative sound-absorbing and noise-screening technologies,
making it much quieter than conventional dryers.
Steam Refresh
LG’s steam technology allows you to inject fabrics with a swirling
jet of hot steam to refresh clothes, reduce static, and make
ironing easier. Simply select the Steam Refresh cycle, or you can
add a steam option to selected cycles.
Easy of Use
The wide, electronically controlled LCD display on this machine
is very easy to use. Simply select the cycle you require
and your LG dryer will do the rest.

Not doing so may may cause an electric shock, a fire, or a malfunction.
• 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
afety Instructions
• 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.
• Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps, waterproof nappy covers, and textiles, rubber backed
articles and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads should not be dried in the tumble dryer.
Doing so may cause spontaneous combustion leading to an explosion and fire.
• If the tumble dryer is installed on a carpet, the dryer may be damaged due to poor air ventilation.
A lack of air circulation or installing the unit on carpet may cause spontaneous combustion leading to
an explosion and fire.
• Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used as specified by the fabric softener instructions. Incorrect

prevent heat from escaping 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.
Safety Instructions
