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.
Save these instructions.
• 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.
• The base opening must not be obstructed by carpeting when the washing machine is installed on
a carpeted floor.

unction Information
Our machine provides various washing methods which suits various conditions and
types of laundry.
Different types of laundry washing
Fuzzy(Normal) Wash
Use this Program for everyday washing e.g. sheets, towels, T-shirts. (refer to page16)
Jean Wash
Use this Program for heavily soiled durable garments e.g. overalls, jeans.
Thick and heavy clothes or those which are excessively dirty like jeans or working uniforms can be washed.
(refer to page16)
Wool Wash
Delicate clothes (lingerie, wool, etc.) which may be easily damaged can be washed. (refer to page16)
The fibers of machine washable woolens have been specifically modified to prevent felting when they are machine washed.
Most handknitted garments are not made of machine washable wool and we recommend that you hand wash them
• Before washing your woolens check the care label for the washing instructions.
• When washing woolens use a mild detergent recommended for washing wool.
• Hand washed woolens may be spun in a washing machine to reduce the time they take to dry.
• To dry woolens lay down them flat on a towel and pat into shape. Dry woolens out of direct sunlight. (The heat and
tumble action of a dryer may cause shrinkage or felting of woolen garments.)
Some wool underlays and sheepskin products can be washed in a washing machine but may cause pump blockages.
(Ensure that the whole article is suitable for machine washing and not just the backing material.) You may wish to
handwash these articles and place them in the machine to spin dry.
Washing according to the condition of laundry
Economy Wash
Economy wash can be selected to wash lightly soiled clothes of less than 2.0 kg in a short time.
(refer to page16)
Speedy Soak Wash
Speedy Soak Wash is designed to maximize washing performance and can be selected to wash heavily
soiled laundry with Fuzzy or Jean Program. (refer to page16)
Other washing method
Delay start Wash

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.
To get the best results, different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
• SOIL (Heavy, Normal, Light)
• COLOR (Whites, Lights, Darks) Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
• LINT (Lint producers, Collectors) Separate lint producers and lint collectors.
Lint Producers
Lint Collectors
Terry cloth, Chenile, Towels, Nappies, Diapers
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 page11)
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Load Size
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 button and submerge additional
items. Close the lid and press Start button again to restart.
Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are
dampened with gasoline or other flammable
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.
Long laundry items
Use nylon nets for long, delicate 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.

se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Water
Amount of Water Level
• This machine detects the quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the water
level and proper amount of detergent.
• When you select a wash program, the water level and amount of detergent (to be used)
will be shown on the control panel.
• The following table shows the amount of water.
• When the water level is automatically detected, it may differ depending on the quantity of laundry even
though the same water level is indicated on the control panel.
• The amount of a cup in the diagram is about 40g for concentrated detergent.
Water temperature
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash program .
• You can change the water temperature by pressing the WATER TEMP. button. (refer to page 12, 14)
• 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)
Only very 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
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
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 domestic 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.
Before Starting to Wash
Using Detergent
How much detergent
When you select a wash program the water level and the amount of detergent (to be used) will be
shown on the control panel. The amount of a cup in the diagram is about 40g for concentrated
The correct amount of detergent will vary depending on the amount of soil in your clothes (Jeans
and work cloches may need more detergent, while bath towels usually need less.).
For liquid and concentrated detergents, follow the recommendations of the detergent manufacturer.
Note: To check you are using the correct amount of detergent, lift the lid of your machine
about half-way through the wash. There should be a thin layer of foam over the surface of the
water. Lots of foam may look good, but it does not contribute to cleaning your clothes. No
foam means not enough detergent has been used; soil and lint can settle back on the clothes or
the washing machine.
If excess detergent is used, the rinse will not be as clean and efficient. Also, it could cause
environmental pollution, so use it accordingly.
Adding the detergent

Check the instructions on the detergent packet.
If you use powdered detergent it is essential that the required amount be fully dissolved in very hot water
before being added to warm or hot water for the actual wash.
Pre-dissolving detergent in warm water when washing in cold water can improve its performance.
Using Liquid Bleach
• Check clothing care label for special instructions and separate the
laundry to be bleached
• Dilute liquid chlorine bleach.
• Measure the recommended amount of liquid bleach carefully
following instructions on the bottle.
• Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of bleach directly
into bleach dispenser. Avoid splashing or overfilling. Powdered
bleach should be mixed with water before pouring.
Bleach dispenser
■ Never pour undiluted liquid bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.
This may cause change of color or damage the laundry.
■ Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing can reduce
a toxic gas which may cause death.
■ Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.
pecial Guide for Stain Removal
■ 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.
