reparation Before Washing
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)
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
• 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, Chenille, 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.
WIRE
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 page13)
Loading
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.
WARNING
Fire Hazard
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.
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.
Before Starting to Wash

U
se of Water, Dispenser Drawer, 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.
NOTE
[ Minimum water amount ]
It depends on laundry load and washer model. Or manually you can pour a certain amount water into tub
directly to some height. That’s because if water level reaches to the some height sensed by washer itself, washer
automatically operates. In other words, it is needed to pour water to the point when washer starts operating.
Water Temperature
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash program .
• 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 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 the Dispenser Drawer
The dispenser drawer contains 2 compartments:
• Liquid Fabric Softener
• Liquid or Powder Low-Sudsing, High-Efficiency Detergent
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 laundry 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.
11
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.
Using Detergent
How much Detergent
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 halfway 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 Detergent
Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
Detergent is flushed through the dispenser at the beginning of the wash phase.
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.

U
se of Water, Dispenser Drawer, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
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
NOTE
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 pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.
Using Fabric Softener
If desired, pour the recommended amount of liquid
fabric softener into the right-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
softener, which could stain clothes.
NOTE : Do not pour fabric softener directly on the
wash load. It may stain the clothes.
Attention
Do not mix with Detergent or bleach.
Never pour fabric softener directly on clothes. It may stain them.
Do not stop the washer during the first spin for timely dispensing.
Option washing is not designed to be used with fabric softener dispenser.
Scrud(Waxy Build up)
Scrud is the name given to the waxy build-up that can occur within any washer when the fabric softener
comes into contact with Detergent. This build-up is not brought about by a fault in the machine.
If scrud is allowed to build-up in the machine it can result in stains on your clothes or an unpleasant
smell in your washer.
If you wish to use fabric softener we recommend
• Using fabric softener sparingly.
• When filling the dispenser, do not splash or overfill.
• Clean dispenser as soon as the cycle is finished.
• Clean your machine regularly. (refer to page 21 or 32)
• Cold water washing increases the chance of this build-up occurring. We recommend a regular WARM or
HOT wash e.g. every 5th wash should be at least a warm one.
• Fabric softener of thinner consistency is less likely to leave residue on the dispenser and contribute to a
build-up.
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.
To reduce the risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply with the basic warnings listed below:
• Read and comply with all instructions on stain removal products.
• Keep stain removal products in their original labeled containers and out of children’s reach.

Caution
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,
extension cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your appliance, and if its
appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord
replaced with an exact replacement part by an authorized servicer. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular
attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.

• Pour approx.. 2 liters of HOT water at approx.. 40˚C, into the bowl and let it stand for 10 minutes.
• Connect the water supply hose to the water tap and confirm that the washing machine performs the
supply and drainage of water.
Wash Inner-tub
Leave the lid open after washing to allow moisture to evaporate. If you want to clean
the inner-tub use a clean soft cloth dampened with liquid Detergent, then rinse. (Do
not use harsh or gritty cleaners.)
Inlet Hoses
Exterior
Hoses connecting washer to faucet should be replaced every 5 years.
Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with damp cloth. Try not to hit surface with
sharp objects.
Long Vacations
Be sure water supply is shut off at faucets. Drain all water from hoses if weather will
be below freezing.
Cleaning the Inside of your Washer
If you use fabric softener or do regular COLD water washing, it is very important that you occasionally clean the
inside of your washer.
• Fill your washer with HOT water.
• Add about two cups of a powdered Detergent that contains phosphate.
• Let it operate for several minutes.
• Stop the washer, open the lid and leave it to soak overnight.
• After soaking, drain the washer and run it through a normal cycle.
Or use TUB CLEAN PROGRAM periodically.
We do not recommend that you wash clothes during this procedure.
Products that might damage your washing machine
• Concentrated bleaches and diaper sanitizer will cause damage to the paintwork and components of your washer.
• Hydrocarbon solvents i.e. petrol, paint thinners and lacquer thinners, etc. can dissolve plastic and blister paint
(Be careful when washing garments stained with these solvents as they are flammable DO NOT put them in
washer or dryer.)
• Some pretreatment sprays or liquids can damage your washer’s control panel.
• Use of dyes in your washer may cause staining of the plastic components. The dye will not damage the machine
but we suggest you thoroughly clean your washer afterwards. We do not recommend the use of dye strippers in
your washer.
• Do not use your washer lid as a work surface.
