Important safety instructions
■ Basic safety precautions
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
• Before installation, check exterior
damages. If it has, do not install.
• Do not install or store the washer
where it will be exposed to the
weather.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not repair or replace any part of
the washer or attempt any servicing
unless specifically recommended in
the user-maintenance instructions or
published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the
skills to carry out.
• Keep the area underneath and around
your appliances free of combustible
materials such as lint, paper, rags,
chemicals, etc.
• Keep small animals away from the
appliance.
• Do not leave the washer door open.
An open door could entice children to hang
on the door or crawl inside the washer.
• Never reach into washer while it is
moving. Wait until the drum has
completely stopped.
• The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardant of fabrics. To avoid such a
result, carefully follow the garment
manufacturer’s wash and care
instructions.
• 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, degreasers, drycleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.)
which may ignite or explode. Oil may
remain in the tub after a whole cycle resulting
in fire during drying.
So, do not load oiled clothes.
• Do not slam the washer door closed
or try to force the door open when
locked. This could result in damage to the
washer.
• When the machine runs high
temperature, the front door may be
very hot. Don’t touch it.
• 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.
• When unplugging power cord, do not
pull out by grasping the cord.
Otherwise, the power cord may be damaged.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinance.
• Do not use an adapter this will defeat the grounding plug.
• If you don’t have the proper outlet, consult an electrician.
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it does not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
■ Safety instructions for use
To minimize the risk of fire within the inner bowl, the following should be observed:
• Items that have been spotted or
soaked with vegetable or cooking oil
constitute a fire hazard and should
not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat sources
such as in a tumble dryer.
The items become warm, causing an
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 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.
The ‘Crease decreasing’ cycle of tumble
dryers should be used to reduce the
temperature of the items.
They should not be removed from the tumble
dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
• Items that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or
spotted with petrol/gasoline, drycleaning solvents or other flammable
or explosive substances should not
be placed in a tumble dryer. Highly
flammable substances commonly used in
domestic environments include acetone,
denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline,
kerosene, spot removers (some brands),
turpentine, waxes and wax removers.

Important safety instructions
■ Safety instructions for use
To minimize the risk of fire within the inner bowl, the following should be observed:
• Items containing foam rubber (also
known as latex foam) or similarly
textured rubber like materials should
not be dried in a tumble dryer on a
heat setting. Foam rubber materials can,
when heated, produce fire by spontaneous
combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products
should not be used during a drying
cycle, to eliminate the effects of static
electricity unless this practice is specifically
recommended by the manufacturer of the
fabric softener or product.
• Undergarments that contain metal
reinforcements should not be placed
in a tumble dryer.
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if
metal reinforcements come loose during
drying. When available a drying rack could
be used for such items.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps
or babies waterproof napkin covers
should not be placed in a tumble
dryer.
• Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted
with foam rubber pads, pillows,
rubber boots and rubber-coated
tennis shoes should not be placed in
a tumble dryer.
• The tumble dryer is not to be
used if industrial chemicals have
been used for cleaning.
• Do not dry unwashed items in
the tumble dryer.
8
• Items that have been soiled with
substances such as cooking oil,
acetone, alcohol, petrol,
kerosene, spot removers,
turpentine, waxes and wax
removers should be washed in
hot water with an extra amount of
detergent before being dried in
the tumble dryer.
• Items such as foam rubber (latex
foam), shower caps, waterproof
textiles, rubber backed articles
and clothes or pillows fitted with
foam rubber pads should not be
dried in the tumble dryer.
• Fabric softeners, or similar
products, should be used as
specified by the fabric softener
instructions.
• Remove all objects from pockets
such as lighters and matches.
• WARNING: Never stop a tumble
dryer before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are quickly
removed and spread out so that
the heat is dissipated.

temperature
Colour
Fabric type
1. 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.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, sort clothes into loads that can be
washed with the same wash cycle.
Different fabrics need to be washed at varying temperatures and
spin speeds.
Always sort dark colours from pale colours and whites. Wash
separately as dye and lint transfer can occur causing
discolouration of white and pale garments. If possible, do not
wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled ones.
• Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
• Colour (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from coloured fabrics.
• Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first.
Large items should not be more than half the total wash load. Do
not wash single items.
This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar
items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Items such
as nails, hair clip, matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make sure that these items
don’t snag on other clothes.
• Pre-treat dirt and stains by brushing a little detergent 'dissolved'
in 'water' onto stains to help lift dirt.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray) and remove any
small articles.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any items from a previous
wash.
• Remove any clothing or items from the flexible gasket to prevent
clothing and gasket damage.
NOTE
• Before the first wash, select a cycle (Cotton 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to

Troubleshooting guide
NOTE
• SmartDiagnosis™ function is available only for the products with a SmartDiagnosis™ mark.
In case of a mobile phone with static option, the SmartDiagnosis™ function might not operate.
Using SmartDiagnosis™
• Only use this feature when instructed to do so by the call center.
The transmission sounds similar to a fax machine, and so has no meaning except to the call center.
• SmartDiagnosis™ cannot be activated if the washer does not power up.
If this happens, then troubleshooting must be done without SmartDiagnosis™.
If you experience problems with your washer, call to Customer Information Center.
Follow the call center agent's instructions, and do the following steps when requested:
1. Press the Power button to turn on the washer. Do not press any
other buttons or turn the cycle selector knob.
2. When instructed to do so by the call center, place the mouthpiece
of your phone very close to the Power button.
Max. 10 mm
3. Touch and hold the “Temp.” button for three seconds, while holding the phone mouthpiece to the icon or
Power button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished.
This takes about 6 seconds, and the display will count down the time.
• For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted.
• If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try
again.
5. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the call center
agent, who will then be able to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis at the call to
Customer information center.
• Smart Diagnosis is a troubleshooting feature designed to assist, not replace, the traditional method of
troubleshooting through service calls. The effectiveness of this feature depends upon various factors,
including, but not limited to, the reception of the cellular phone being used for transmission, any external
noise that may be present during the transmission, and the acoustics of the room where the machine is
located.
Accordingly, LG does not guarantee that Smart Diagnosis would accurately troubleshoot any given issue.
