S afety Information
Introduction
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,
paper, rags, chemicals, etc.
• Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is used by or near children. Do not allow children
to play on, with, or inside this or any other appliance.
WHEN USING
THE WASHER
• Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner's Manual.
• Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait until the machine has completely stopped
before opening the lid.
• Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing
different chemicals can produce a toxic gas which may cause death.
• Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, oil, paint, gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents,
kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode. Do not add these substances to the wash water. Do
not use or place these substances around your washer or dryer during operation.
• The laundry process can reduce the flame retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result, carefully
follow the garment manufacturer's wash and care instructions.
• To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply or
disconnect the washer at the household distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off
the circuit breaker before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
NOTE: Pressing Power button to turn off does NOT disconnect the appliance
from the power supply.
• Never attempt to operate this appliance if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled,
or has missing or broken parts, including a damaged cord or plug.
WHEN NOT IN
USE
• Turn off water faucets to relieve pressure on hoses and valves and to minimize leakage if a break
or rupture should occur. Check the condition of the fill hoses; they may need replacement after 5
years.
• Before discarding a washer, or removing it from service, remove the washer lid to prevent
children from hiding inside.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of this appliance unless specifically recommended in
this Owner's Manual, or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the
skills to carry out.
• Do not tamper with controls.

F unction Information
Introduction
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
Economy Wash
Economy wash can be selected to wash lightly soiled clothes of less than 2.0 kg in a short time.
(refer to page14)
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 page14)
Other washing method
Delay start Wash
Delay start Wash is used to delay the finishing time of the operation. (refer to page16)
The number of hours to be delayed can be set by the user accordingly.
Option Wash
Spin, Rinse/Spin, Rinse, Wash/Rinse, and Wash only options can selected. (refer to page17)

Before Starting to Wash
P 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.

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
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.
Attentión

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
(
)
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.
■ Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.
Before Starting to Wash
10
U
se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
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 (
)
or
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 26)
• 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.

S
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.
■ 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.
• Thoroughly wash any utensil used.
• Do not combine stain removal products, especially ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes may result.
• Never wash items which have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents
or other flammable or explosive substances because they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Never use highly flammable solvents, such as gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on contact with flames or sparks.
For successful stain removal:
• Remove stains promptly.
• Determine the kind of stain, then follow the recommended treatment in the stain
removal chart below.
• To pretreat stains, use a prewash product, liquid detergent, or a paste made from
granular detergent and water.
• Use cold water on unknown stains because hot water can set stains.
• Check care label instructions for treatments to avoid on specific fabrics.
Follow fabric care label
• Check for colorfastness by testing stain remover on an inside seam.

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.
Exterior
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.
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.
