S
afety Information
WARNING!
Read and follow this safety information carefully.
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.
WATER HEATER
SAFETY
• 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.
PROPER
INSTALLATION
• 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.
• Properly ground washer to conform with all governing codes and ordinances. Follow details in
Installation Instructions.
• Must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
YOUR
LAUNDRY
AREA
• Keep the area underneath and around your appliances free of combustible materials such as lint,

Introduction
F
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 page14)
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 page14)
WOOL Wash
Delicate clothes (lingerie, wool, etc.) which may be easily damaged can be washed. (refer to page14)
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
QUICK WASH
QUICK WASH can be selected to wash lightly soiled clothes of less than 2.0 kg in a short time.
(refer to page 14)
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 page 16)
Other washing method
TUB CLEAN
Use this program to clean the inside of washing machine especially Inner tub & Outer tub. (refer to page 17)
DELAY START Wash
DELAY START Wash is used to delay the finishing time of the operation.
The number of hours to be delayed can be set by the user accordingly. (refer to page 18)
OPTION
One or more wash options can be selected for FUZZY and JEAN washing program. (refer to page 19)

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, 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.
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 page11)
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.

LEVEL
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)
• 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.
Attention
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
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.
9
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 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 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.

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 Bleach Check fabric care labels for special instructions.
Available Bleach Type
• Use oxygenated bleach.
• Must dilute liquid bleach.
• For more details refer to the products instruction for use.
Depositing Bleach
• Separate the laundry to be bleached.
• Measure powdered bleach carefully, following instructions on the box.
• Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of bleach directly into bleach dispenser.
Attention
■ 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.
Depositing liquid detergent and bleach
• When using dispenser, dilute bleach
(25ml) with fresh water (25ml)

Using Fabric Softener
• Dilute fabric softener with water.
Undiluted fabric softener may result in spots that look like oil
stains.
• Measure and add the recommended amount of fabric softener
into the compartment marked with this symbol( ).
Follow manufacturer’s direction.
Softener dispenser (
)

Fabric softener is automatically dispensed in the final rinse
with indication beep.
If you want extra rinse, you must add fabric softener
manually when indication beep rings in the final rinse. This
maximize the fabric softener function.

• Do not overfill. The dispenser hold max 35mL.
Never add more than 35mL.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of the fabric softener
which could result in stained clothes. A cup with a pouring spout will help you avoid spilling.
• The effect of adding fabric softener may vary according to its viscosity. The stickier fabric softener makes its
effect the lower. For a sticky fabric softener it is recommended that it be diluted with water, then be manually
put during the time when the washer beeps several times before the final rinse. This function informing
correct time to dispense manually is optionally applied to some models. Please keep it in mind that fabric
softener has to be diluted with water before dispensed and never poured directly on 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 17 or 28)
• 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.

* If the Detergent quantity is put more than the standard, for increasing the rinsing performance, it automatically
adds rinsing, and the remaining time may be increased.
* The standard detected by the sensor changing the algorithm is set by the normal standard. It may not be same to
the washing habit of a specific user. So, it does not matter that the user uses it according to her/his washing habit.
* The sensor for a Detergent quantity is designed to detect based on a synthetic Detergent powder. If you put a
liquid one or a natural one or too much bleaching agent, the detecting ability of the sensor may be decreased.
(refer to page 21)

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.

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.
